Look, if they made an honest mistake, then I can accept this as an apology.

Laza,,,I think they realized their error in judgment after this went viral.

Isn't Marvel hooked up with Disney?

I don't buy it. The dialogue implied that anti-tax protesters are racist:

Captain America says the protest appears to be an "anti-tax thing," and The Falcon [who is black] jokes that he likely would not be welcomed into the crowd of "angry white folks."

So even if you remove the reference to tea bagging you end up with Captain America and his sidekick describing anti-tax protesters as 'angry white folks.'

These are not honest mistakes. I was channel surfing last night and decided to check out a new show on FOX networks about a group of people who investigate murders and crimes by looking into the visions of people purported to have been reincarnated or some such crap.

I had just focused on the dialog when a woman said something to the effect that they had little to go on but it was enough because they knew the person they were looking for had certain characteristics. The guy said....."Yeah sure, we know he's white and angry! I'm thinking a Republican!"

I turned the channel off and I won't ever watch a single episode of that show, no matter how good or popular it might become. They killed it right there, as far as I am concerned.

Here are a couple of quotes from Ed Brubaker, who wrote this comic:

“Memo to Bachman and the rest of the tea crowd — We had a revolution already, it’s called an election,” Brubaker tweeted on Nov. 5.

Nine days later, he wrote: “What did we learn this week? That Sarah Palin is a lying idiot. Hey, welcome to 2008 again.”

So I suppose we need to decide if it was an honest mistake, or if they were another liberal group who were clueless to the massive number of paying customers who are part of the Tea Party movement.

Any ideas on how to find an answer?
