Captain America's role exploited by writers for supporting illegal immigration
In the issue, Captain America beats up members of a white supremacist militia called the Sons of the Serpent as they attempt to apprehend a group of illegal aliens crossing the desert from Mexico into Arizona.And here's Spencer's tweet right here:
“Captain America: Sam Wilson #1” (Youtube screengrab)
The leader of the group, the Serpent Commander, makes statements that are similar to what Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has been criticized for saying during his White House run. The Commander longs for the construction of “the mighty wall” and laments the “trouble and disease and crime” that the border-crossers are bringing with them.
Trump, who leads the GOP field in the polls, has called for the erection of border wall with a “big, beautiful door” on it. He also came under fire for saying that Mexico is sending “rapists” into the U.S.
Indeed, the comic’s writer, Nick Spencer, is no fan of Trump.
Apparently hate speech is just fine so long as it brings in the ratings. Let's all be entertained by Trump!— Nick Spencer (@nickspencer) October 13, 2015
can be read at Hot Air, Independent Journal and Twitchy. The premiere issue features headlines like "Capt. Anti-America" and "Capt. Socialist" which are not only attacks on conservatives in their entirety, acting as if not a single rightie can tell the difference between fiction and reality, or it's the writer's attempt to divert attention away from his own selfish little biases, and doesn't think what he's doing is wrong. But it is. And what's truly revolting is how he's using all this as a way to justify socialism and bad policies. It should be crystal clear by now that Sam Wilson was not made into a new Captain for real entertainment purposes, but rather, to be used as a political tool. What makes it more ludicrous is that a lot of the interlopers have cost many African-Americans their jobs, and there are blacks supporting Trump who've made clear they disapprove of amnesty for these reasons. So Marvel's stunt is actually an insult to many blacks who've lost job opportunities to illegal immigrants.
Since we're on the subject, Marvel's staff must be trying to divert attention from this nonsense by forming an affair between Sam Wilson and Jane Foster, now the female Thor. As if we haven't seen interracial affairs in mainstream before. A more creative idea would've been for Sam to spend time with a civilian white girlfriend. And I guess under Alonso's PC-laden directions, Jane no longer has any affection for the real Thor, nor for Keith Kincaid?
