Et Tu, Captain America?

This is a sad day for America.
Comic book hero Captain America turns out to be a liberal of the worst sort — a brainwashed follower of ObamaPelosiReid who slanders tea party patriots as dangerous KKK racists.
I’m so glad I never bought any Captain America comic books, nor will I. Captain America should be renamed Captain Red Amerika.

As recounted by Warner Todd Huston of Publius Forum:

Marvel Comic’s Captain America is the mightiest soldier with the super powerful secret soldier formula that makes him a super man. Sadly, this muscle bound hero that took on the whole Nazi army during WWII seems to be afraid of those American people who’ve joined the Tea Party movement. Not only is Cappy quaking in his little red booties, but he’s sure that the Tea Party folks are dangerous racists, too.
Isn’t it wonderful that a decades old American comic book hero is now being used to turn readers against our very political system, being used to slander folks that are standing up for real American principles in real life — and one called “Captain America” at that?
In issue number 602 of Captain America, a new story line has begun called “Two Americas.” In it the current Captain (there have been a few of them, apparently) is on the trail of a faux Captain America that is mentally deranged and getting chummy with some white supremacist, anti-government, survivalists types going by the name of “the Watchdogs.” While investigating this subversive group, Captain America and his partner The Falcon — a black super hero — have decided to try and infiltrate the secretive organization.
In preparation for the infiltration, Marvel Comics depicts the two super heroes out of costume and observing from a rooftop a street filled with what can only be described as a Tea Party protest. The scene shows crowds of people in city streets carrying signs that say, “stop the socialists,” “tea bag libs before they tea bag you,” and “no to new taxes.” Naturally, the people in these crowds are depicted as being filled with nothing but white folks.

The black character asks the out of costume Captain, “What the hell is this?” And follows that with, “looks like some kind of anti-tax protest.” The Falcon character then snidely tells his partner the Captain, “So I guess this whole ‘hate the government’ vibe around here isn’t limited to the Watchdogs.”
The two then discuss their plan to infiltrate the subversive group that Marvel comics seems to be linking to the Tea Party movement. This discussion culminates in The Falcon wondering how a black man would do such a thing. “I don’t exactly see a black man from Harlem fitting in with a bunch of angry white folks,” he tells the incognito Captain America.
The Captain tells him, “no it’s perfect… this all fits right into my plan.” After this we find that the Captain’s plan is to send the black man into a redneck bar to pretend to be a black man working for the IRS and to get everyone all mad… because… well, you know that every white person is a racist that hates black civil servants, right?
So, there you have it, America. Tea Party protesters just “hate the government,” they are racists, they are all white folks, they are angry, and they associate with secretive white supremacist groups that want to over throw the U.S. government.
Bet you didn’t know that when you were indulging your right as a citizen to protest your government that you were a dangerous white supremacist that wants to destroy the country, did you? Bet you didn’t realize that your reverence for the U.S. Constitution was a subversive thing to do, did you? And I’ll also bet that you never imagined that you’d scare the little blue panties off of Captain America!
Nice going Marvel Comics. Thanks for making patriotic Americans into your newest super villains.

  2. I was a huge comic book reader/collector back in the day (still have close to 3000 comics in three large plastic tubes to back it up!) I stopped collecting back in 1997 when prices started going through the roof and now I am glad I did this is sad beyond belief.
    Marvel has lost some good Writers/editors/artist who moved on to other comic book companies Image, Top Cow, DC etc… I watched as great comics went down the toilets only to be replaced by crap.
    I have suffered through tired predictable crossovers and the continuous death and re- animations of characters who just can’t seem to stay dead!
    and don’t get me started of umpteen versions of the same comic i.e. you have Web of Spider-Man, Tales of Spider-man, Peter Parker the Spactacular Spider-Man, Classic Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2033. Oh and don’t forget when oh Peter Parker dyed his hair blond???
    At least besides the slow road to ruin Marvel always tried to stay neutral about politics but that all when away when Obama showed up in an issue of Spider-man and now this? Oh Well have no fear if Marvel was actually doing good they (Marvel) would not be under Mickey Mouse’s roof, they may already be in its death throws.
    Marvel is going to find out fast that not all of its readers are liberals.

     
  3. I reckon ye’re gonna hafta get Cap’n Confederate America. He’ll know what to do. Looks like freedom is being threatened everywhere. If John Wayne was alive he’d turn in his grave!

     
  4. Dorks.

     
  5. Wow. Really. Shouldn’t he be fighting for Truth, Justice and he American Way? I guess it is hard to find for the American Way when you don’t like America–as so much of our nation seems to do.
