Marvel Comics: Captain America Says Tea Parties Are Dangerous and Racist
Publius Forum ^ | 2-9-10 | Warner Todd Huston

Posted on 02/09/2010 1:56:57 PM PST by TitansAFC

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.

Captain America was always a massive, bloated government boondoggle anyway. The military has had that super serum for nearly 70 years, and they only inject it into one guy?

The modern liberals at the helm of Marvel Comics (a company that in the 1990s was owned by Bill Clinton’s pal) turned the whole story of Captain America into racist revisionist history.

The story of the meek/weak guy being turned into the Super Soldier “Captain America” was turned into a story of America’s “hidden” racism.

The retrocontinuity story was written that poor black men were the “original” Captain Americas but given the experimental formula while the kinks were being worked out.

Marvel Comics sucks and is antiAmerican. Screw their politics and screw their propagandists.

“No Government in my Medicare” is a nod to Barack Obama’s knock at those who say “Americans don’t want Socialism”.

We can’t CALL it socialist but the lying liberals know it is.

Notice how they made the protagonists handsome, athletic and sensible, while the protestors look like unwashed low-lifes.

I just looked up Marvel and read that they were recently bought by Disney.

I read a Bronze Age Captain America comic book last summer where the Patriot (I think that was his name) wanted to attack or destroy the UN because he was pro America and they made him out to be a nut. In the end Captain America stops him and saves the UN.

And that comic is about 30 years old.

We shouldn't forget that Marvel is now owned by Disney, the same craptastic company that brings us Good Morning, America everyday.

I don't know if it's been this way for decades, but certainly in the last 15 or more years, superhero franchises - both in comics and in cinema - have been nothing short of in-kind contributions to the DNC. We had Superman shedding everything American - the very thing that made Superman so popular in the '40s - in his last movie installment. The X-Men franchise is a thinly veiled propaganda piece about so-called gay rights. And, now we see a decidedly and overtly liberal Captain America. For the leftists in America's big-entertainment complex, everything they touch is an opportunity for them to advance their agenda - everything has a political message and purpose.

Remember that the next time you think about dropping $5K to take the family to Disney World.

Actually he was the only one to receive the formula with the relevant “vita-rays” that stabilized the super soldier serum. Then the Nazis killed the scientist who invented the serum and burned his notes so it could not be replicated. Every couple of years Marvel has a storyline where some guy receives a version of the formula without the vita-rays and it messes him up.

The Watchdogs first appeared back in the late-80’s...about 1987 I believe. One issue they were going to lynch Cap’s black partner who was undercover as a pornographer in a southern town. They were brought in as an arbiter of good morals but it turns out they were front group formed by the Red Skull.

Marvel needs some writers that understand what Cap stands for.

It’s Bucky brought back from the dead. There used to be 2 rules at Marvel when it came to deaths-Uncle Ben and Bucky stay dead. Shows you how desperate they are. I wonder when the Uncle Ben zombie is going to rear its ugly head.

And is ol’ green machine himself, “Captain Planet”, still around?

The one who said, “Hey kids!! Let’s save the Earth from greedy capitalists!!!”

BTW, my childhood favorites were Superman and Batman, but there was just one thing I couldn’t figure out about the Man of Steel:

Ol’ Supe came here to Earth in 1938. He should have made mincemeat out of the Germans and the Japs, no atomic bomb needed. Wha’ hoppened, huh?

As a kid I was an avid Comic book reader.

I never liked Captain America.

Superman, Batman, The Black Hawks, They were my books.

I lliked the Disney Comic, Donald Duck, Mickey Mouse. Back when Walt Disney was running things.

How many kids actually read comics anymore? I would say that most comic book collectors and readers are over 30 years old. Marvel is only insulting most of their readers.

Such fools. When people read fiction it’s becuase they want an escape from reality, they don’t want to be reminded of politics.

Yeah, but he came here as a baby, even if he was a really tough baby. Would you really want a 2 or 3 year old killing krauts and japs?

Also, it is my understanding that, originally, Superman wasn't nearly as powerful as he is now. At first he could over jump over buildings - now he can fly. And before he could withstand blasts up to a Howitzer, but now he can take a nuclear blast and laugh.

June, 1938 was when the first grown up Superman appears. He would have come to earth in the 19-teens.

Also, it is my understanding that, originally, Superman wasn't nearly as powerful as he is now. At first he could over jump over buildings - now he can fly. And before he could withstand blasts up to a Howitzer, but now he can take a nuclear blast and laugh.

That is correct. The explanation of his powers changed, too. At first he was just an evolutionarily advanced Kryptonian transplanted to Earth. Then Earth's weaker gravity was used to explain his super-strength. Then they threw in Earth's yellow sun super charging him(which didn't explain his ability to fly through solar systems at near light speeds).

He eventually developed a "code against killing", which would crimp his style in war time. But in the war ... check out this cover:

That's pretty weak. Superman, Flash or Green Lantern could have worked around that the same woy the original Green Lantern had to work around wooden weapons.

Supes could have dropped a munition or a paratrooper on Hitler's head without coming near the spear. What did Hirohito have, the "Cone of Silence?"

Waaaay back in the 70s when I was a youngster, Steve Rogers had a stint as a character named Nomad because he discovered (first-hand) that the leader of an organization called the Secret Empire -- which was hell-bent on making the U.S. into a dictatorship -- was none other than the occupant of the White House at the time.

Yah. That's right. The leader of the evil Secret Empire was none other than Richard M. Nixon.

Not to mention that one of the biggest criminal organizations in Marvel Comics back in the 70s was a fictional oil company -- Roxxon Oil.

You're absolutely right. Marvel Comics has been publishing leftist drivel like this for a looong time.

Walt ran the company but licensed the comic book rights out to other companies around the world. It just so happened that “the good duck artist (and writer)” Carl Barks briefly worked at Disney in animation. Disney didn’t publish comics until the 1990s.

As others have stated, that was in the last Superman movie. I don't agree with the criticism, because the "all that stuff" line was said by Perry White ... which is definitely IN character for him.

I have a DVD of the first Superman cartoons, the ones that were made and ran right around the time the US came into the war. They have a very nice one called the "Japateurs" where Lois and Clark are in Tokyo on a story and Superman keeps taking out chunks of the Japanese war industry.

Ok, sure, Superman COULD take out the Axis in a busy afternoon. But then what would happen with all the associated story lines? Like Wonder Woman for instance?

And from a sales perspective, if Superman takes out the Axis in late December 1941 what does DC do for storylines compelling enough to get kids to part with their hard earned allowance money for the next four years?

For a guy who saw what totalitarianism can do, who used to write and produce some mighty fine pro-US material, it is disappointing. Either old age or stupidity ( maybe both) seem to have over taken him.
