Superman Renounces U.S. Citizenship
The Constitution Club ^ | 04-28-11 | The Rat

Posted on 04/28/2011 8:44:58 PM PDT by TheConservativeCitizen

Holy crap Batman, what’s up with Superman? It sounds like truth, justice, and the American way just don’t get it for your Kryptonian pal anymore. What happened?

Yes citizens of Metropolis, it’s a dark day indeed. As unthinkable as it sounds, your super- hero is fed up with America and has renounced his U.S. citizenship. How can this be, you ask?

It seems that Superman dropped in on a Tehran demonstration to stand with non-violent protestors against the Iranian regime. This not only ticked off the President’s national security advisor; the mullahs weren’t too happy either. Following a dress-down from the American government, the Man of Steel renounced his American citizenship at the United Nations the next day. (Hmm…you don’t suppose the Man of Awesomeness would follow suit, do you?)

Claiming that he was not abandoning his American values, Superman explained that he’s “only trying to implement them on a larger scale” and divorcing himself from the “political complexities of nationalism.” (This is sounding more and more familiar the farther we go.)

The Man of Steel said that he has been “thinking too small,” and that he is “too connected with the world” to limit himself to a singular national identity. As an alien born on another planet, after all, he “can’t help but see the bigger picture.” (BINGO, RAT’S GOT IT!)

Sources close to Superman indicate that the presidency of Barack Obama was the final motivation the Man of Steel needed to pull the trigger. As is the case with Obama, Superman finally realized that he is “larger than America – a true citizen of the world.”

Barack Hussein Obama can only dream.

The Rat also heard that Superman was fed up with the incessant questions about his birth certificate.

I say it’s time for Batman to kick his ass again, like he did in Dark Knight Returns (the comic).

That’s impossible, his jizz would blow a hole through her hoo-hoo.

It’s been theoretically proven.

Have your way with this traitor.

We don’t want him anymore.

Clark Kent is a reporter for the Daily Planet. Like all members of the MSM he has decided to denounce America.

He is hoping it will save his job and get him a position as a TV journalist.

he is “too connected with the world” to limit himself to a singular national identity

Maybe he will start following Islamic values like a lot of other Western nihilists and we'll see him smashing down churches and killing women who don't wear burquas in the next series.

The Man of Steel said that he has been “thinking too small,”

Cognitive dissonance. While Obaama is doubtless "small" (hung like a ...hamster), I think it'd be going too far to call him the "Man of Steel". (Steal, yes, as in National Debt; or wet noodle, as in Moochelle is *very* disappointed)

To quote FReeper Lizavetta for an Obaama haiku:

The wifey looks mad

Could it be that his johnson

Came from his white side?

And speaking of Teh One as Superman -- why doesn't anyone just bring a hunk of Kryptonite to his next fundraiser?

Cheers!

“Superman finally realized that he is “larger than America – a true citizen of the world.”

Does this mean that Superman has Super Human Rights? Or is he just another illegal alien?

Typical MSM reporter.

He wasn’t a U.S. citizen anyway.

I like your description!

“Supergay” also applies to the coverage and following of the royal wedding.
