Just as I thought, plenty of liberal creators are bawling and Trump-bashing
Watching Trump win by 1% in states where third party candidates took 2%... Fuck you and your protest votes, you special fucking snowflakes.— Chris Roberson (@chris_roberson) November 9, 2016
Wow, nobody's allowed to make their choice? This is disgusting and uncalled for.
On behalf of my fellow whites folks, I want to apologize. I wish that we were better than this, but we've clearly got a lot of work to do.— Chris Roberson (@chris_roberson) November 9, 2016
Just look at that, he's blaming all white humans for supposedly electing a fascist! But seriously, I think this guy just wants Trump to be one so he can have a scapegoat to bring out of the drawer whenever he feels he has to take out his frustrations on something. People who can't live without something to scapegoat for politics are a truly pitiful bunch.
We are a hateful, vile, fearful, bigoted people, and I'm fearful for what the future holds. But I won't stop fighting to make things better.— Chris Roberson (@chris_roberson) November 9, 2016
If that's how he feels, then he should pack his bags and leave the country. The USA has no place for people who blur all the differences between a democracy and a totalitarian regime like Iran. On which note, did Roberson ever object to the deal the Obama administration made with Iran? I got a sad feeling the answer's no.
The next four years are going to be very hard, but we can't stop fighting. We can't let the forces of ignorance and hatred win,— Chris Roberson (@chris_roberson) November 9, 2016
In that case, is he willing to come to the defense of this black chef who got blacklisted by "progressives" because he catered food to Trump campaigners? Or this black grandmother who faced backlashing because she supported Trump too? Man, Roberson sure is one genuine ignoramus, and this isn't the first time he's ever been so shallow.
To my friends overseas, please don't judge all Americans too harshly tonight. We did the best we could.— Chris Roberson (@chris_roberson) November 9, 2016
He thinks all foreigners have a dim view of the US. But if he paid attention to Egypt, they hoped Trump would win, and Marine Le Pen over in France, who's taking a better path than her disgusting father, preferred Trump over Clinton too.
Just keeping saying "It's the DNC's fault for not backing my candidate" as the fascists strip you and your loved ones of all your rights.— Chris Roberson (@chris_roberson) November 9, 2016
Just say it's the DNC's fault for upholding such awful policies, please. Besides, they ran a pretty disastrous campaign if you looked behind the scenes and saw how fractured it really was; a total disaster. Their incitement activities didn't help matters either.
My overriding instinct is to apologize. To my LGBTQ friends, to women, to Latinos and Asians and African-Americans... I'm sorry. SO sorry.— Chris Roberson (@chris_roberson) November 9, 2016
Umm, Chris, have you considered that some of them voted for the GOP this year, because they had a better platform to offer? If you've got to apologize, how about for the poor political approach of the Dems that led to the Orlando massacre a few months ago? Now, let's turn to Mark Waid:
I truly believe that all Trump wanted was to pull off the greatest long con in American history, which he did. That MAY be enough for him.— Mark Waid (@MarkWaid) November 9, 2016
What about the con-job the Clintons pulled for many years? Nothing to say about that, I guess? And then, in an argument about Mike Pence, he says:
Disagree. Pence is vile and a waste of carbon, yes, but I don't have to worry about him launching nukes at 3 a.m. out of spite. https://t.co/e9SbgKPea5— Mark Waid (@MarkWaid) November 9, 2016
What about Tim Kaine? Nothing reprehensible about his MO? Now, here's Gail Simone:
It's awesome how Evangelicals embraced a serial-adulterer sexually assaulting racist.— GAIL SIMONE (@GailSimone) November 9, 2016
It's stupefying how moonbats like this one ignore the accusations against Bill Clinton for sexual abuse against about a dozen women, including Juanita Broaddrick. Not to mention how Hillary defended a child rapist in 1975, and used approaches that would've been illegal under laws only later approved by Arkansas. Simone's potentially deliberate obfuscations of specific issues became a wakeup call and made me understand why she was really a bad lot, undeserving of writing any of the mainstream books she worked on in the past. I'm not sure if she even talks about them much anymore, if that matters. It's terrible she turned out to be so shockingly callous, because once, I thought she had a modicum of creativity, and now she's thrown most of that away for the sake of PC lunacy.
A lot of people I love and millions like them have been targeted by Trump and his ilk for no goddamn reason. I am with THEM.— GAIL SIMONE (@GailSimone) November 9, 2016
Is she also with the decent Europeans who've been targeted by Islamofascists for no goddamn reason save for being "infidels" and other petty matters?
Tell that to trans people trying to go to the bathroom in North Carolina. https://t.co/qLeIzy6ZJL— GAIL SIMONE (@GailSimone) November 9, 2016
And you tell that to the ladies who're worried about being sexually harassed/assaulted by men pretending to be women or transvestites so they can enter the ladies' rooms in public. Besides, nobody's saying transgenders can't go to the bathrooms, they just want them to use those whose actual gender they belong to. Her obsessiveness on the issue is only making it worse.
I have two slim hopes. First, Trump sees enemies everywhere. Any congress not completely slavish will be that for him. Could gridlock.— GAIL SIMONE (@GailSimone) November 9, 2016
Second, I wonder what happens to his support when he can't follow through on many of his core fantasy promises.— GAIL SIMONE (@GailSimone) November 9, 2016
Simone sees enemies everywhere too. Sort of reminds me of Fredric Wertham's approach.
We liberals LOVE scapegoating the wrong people. https://t.co/P8M3pR9kgI— GAIL SIMONE (@GailSimone) November 9, 2016
You certainly do. You also don't have the courage to admit you have Orwellian viewpoints.
Have the best day yo can, everyone. Stick up for each other, if you can.— GAIL SIMONE (@GailSimone) November 9, 2016
Except Cyclops, screw that guy.
Wow, she doesn't like the X-Men's main field leader? Bashing a fictional character may not be as bad as bashing a real life person for all the wrong reasons, but it's still very laughable and unintelligible all the same. Now for Dan Slott:
It's like Brexit.— Dan Slott (@DanSlott) November 9, 2016
With all the anti-immigrant sentiment.
And some misogyny thrown in, because why not be even MORE horrible?
Look how he holds up race and sexism cards to obscure his own crude writing that says more about his own personality than the politicians he bashes.
Plus side...— Dan Slott (@DanSlott) November 9, 2016
Hey, we'll finally hear Trump's "secret" plan for defeating ISIS.
If you need me, I'll be over here, staring into the abyss.
No, because how could ISIS be brought down if government/military intel made all their ideas public?
Well played, Putin. Well played.— Dan Slott (@DanSlott) November 9, 2016
Media, you didn't do your job.— Dan Slott (@DanSlott) November 9, 2016
Now it's on you.
Protect women, POC, LGBTQ, & immigrants.
Keep an eye on Russia.
Follow the money.
Of course they didn't do their job; they were just following orders from the same mentality that people like Slott subscribe to. Interesting that he bashes Putin, since until now, most leftists usually embraced communism for a time. Does this mean he'll be writing stories in the future bashing communism like Stan Lee did in the Silver Age? Alas, probably not.
Fine. Then you know what?— Dan Slott (@DanSlott) November 9, 2016
For 4 years we get to fight hate.
For 4 years we don't stop.
For 4 years we get to be God damn heroes. https://t.co/5JPK8CDv1V
Alas, they won't be.
.@CNN The media, right now, is saying Clinton underestimated Trump.— Dan Slott (@DanSlott) November 9, 2016
We all underestimated the media.
Not exactly. You trusted the mainstream media, no matter how many dishonest reports they kept airing, and never thought to try out anything right-wing, let alone those thinking independently, or you might've gotten an idea what was going wrong with the Democrat campaign. Now, let's see what others we can find here:
Umm, a lot of women, blacks and Latinos supported Trump in this election, so I think it's the other way around. Clinton failed to win over many, if at all. Even some LGBT groups supported Trump, as did a Muslim woman, so what's the use of explaining anything?
And congressional Republicans have bullshitted themselves into thinking they won the White House. Trump isn't your ally, you idiots.— Cully Hamner (@CullyHamner) November 9, 2016
A lot of women feel the same way about Clinton. Now, here's something pretty awful:
Groan. Much as I admire the past artwork of this guy, I can't overlook what Bill's doing here, drawing a caricature of Trump looking like he's going to shoot the big green lady donated by France, and himself. Does he realize how vile that is, and stains his own image? It's devastating when a talented artist sinks this low.
Perfect closing statement from Trump. Not "I started something about important issues" not "all the good, tough people I met" Just: a waste https://t.co/ihnBYqr6WV— Scott Snyder (@Ssnyder1835) November 8, 2016
I think people like this guy are wasting their time on politics altogether. And when somebody asks Mark Waid what's more important to him, he answered:
My politics. Or, more accurately, my responsibility to speak out against perceived injustice. It's not even a contest. https://t.co/rf65rjMfOh— Mark Waid (@MarkWaid) November 10, 2016
So he's okay with throwing his career and reputation into the dustbin all for the sake of an otherwise unhappy profession? Sigh. In that case, he should just retire and run for office.
I just had someone tell me that Trump did not stoke violence and encourage hate at his rallies. What do I say to that?— Mark Waid (@MarkWaid) November 10, 2016
You say it's disturbing that Clinton and company tried inciting at his rallies. Waid doesn't think that's a damaging form of behavior?
Look, I really am trying to reach out across the aisle and understand how Christians could vote for Trump. But no one has answers.— Mark Waid (@MarkWaid) November 10, 2016
I'm trying to figure out how Waid could vote for Clinton after she slighted the dignity of her hubby's victims, and Kathy Shelton's.
Lots of white dems are really obsessed with the dems re-focusing on white people, that's tonight's not so surprising lesson— Nick Spencer (@nickspencer) November 11, 2016
What, white voters don't matter? Point: Dems have spent several years taking paths that alienated even black voters. Why, back in 2008, Clinton already screwed up.
But what conservatives need to be aware of is that to a large number of people--their man represents bigotry, hate, sexism and intolerance.— Erik Larsen (@ErikJLarsen) November 11, 2016
And what liberals need to be aware of is Bill Clinton's creepy past with several women, ditto Hillary's tolerance for the same.
There's a lot to learn from subjects like this. The worst part is realizing there's every chance we'll be seeing tons of anti-Trump rhetoric littering up mainstream superhero comics for starters over the next 4 years, and even smaller publishers are probably going to lose their minds over politics. And that's only bound to destroy people's faith in a sadly collapsing medium even more.
Update: here's also a few conservative writers/artists setting better paths.
