Rick Veitch abuses Uncle Sam

Comic Book Resources has been paying lip service to Rick Veitch over his 9-11 Truther propaganda called "The Big Lie", and he says something about Uncle Sam that's very insulting:
Time travel and intense interactions aren't the only comic book hallmarks found in the pages of
"The Big Lie;" Veitch and company also utilize a familiar storytelling device in the form of American icon Uncle Sam.

"He's the narrator," Veitch said. "Our Uncle Creepy if you will. Only he's a good guy. Feisty and not easily duped."
"Uncle Creepy"?!? His description of what he must be portraying the iconic figure as sounds vulgar. And by "not easily duped", I guess he means that Uncle Sam doesn't recognize that the al Qaeda and its hatemongering are what led to the horror of 9-11. Tragically, that's doubtlessly what he's saying.
"Man, there's so much disinformation, much of it highly charged politically, that it's no easy job wading through," Veitch said. "The debate has turned into a decade long troll fest, with polarized and entrenched groups insulting and debunking each other. Fortunately, in the middle of that are guys like Brian [Romanoff], who work diligently to separate fact from fiction."
It obviously doesn't occur to him that he too is adding to the disinformation and politically charged atmosphere along with Romanoff. Nor does he seem to realize that he's one of those keeping up the blur between fact and fiction. His parroting is one of the most ludicrous things about him.

"Uncle Creepy" was the narrator for Warren's long-running CREEPY horror anthology magazine back in the 60's-80's. He was the NARRATOR, just as "Uncle Sam" is the narrator in Veitch's book. THAT'S why Veitch made the "Uncle Creepy" analogy.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
