Slott predictably returns to Twitter, and continues his mindless babble
People who believe that today's comic book writers shouldn't have political opinions or express them, would've really hated...Naturally, there's no distinctions to be made. Like how, in contrast to WW2, today's leftist writers like Slott don't want to help foreign countries find the same freedoms afforded to Americans. I have no doubt Slott was amongst the crowd opposing the Iraq war and removal of Saddam from his dictatorial positions. Why do I get the feeling Slott wouldn't approve of the true reason for fighting WW1 in 1914-18, which was to defeat not just Germany prior to WW2, but also the Islamic Ottoman empire, which was guilty of slaughtering 1.5 million Armenians? Does he even care that Turkey's Islamofascists today still won't apologize?
...how comics took a stand against Nazis before America entered WW2.
Or comics that took political stances in the 60's, 70's, 80's, and 90's.
Let's ponder: the barrage of extreme anti-war positions and other nasty modern leftist politics may be just what got people so fed up they're not interested in just leaving leftist politics out of stories, but also rightist politics. But you just can't expect somebody like Slott to admit that.
He also said:
Writers write what they're passionate about. They don't sacrifice good stories for political views. At times they write 'em BECAUSE of them. https://t.co/8Je0UiBXIV— Dan Slott (@DanSlott) December 4, 2016
Sorry, but writers like Slott do sacrifice good storytelling for the sake of their politics. Mainly by shoving them in the readers' faces so hard, it makes it hard to enjoy anything else. Even before Slott, there was Scott Lobdell, who threw good storytelling out the window for the sake of telling everybody to just accept homosexuality as "normal" in the pages of Alpha Flight. Namely, he hammered it, as seen similarly in X-Men in early 2001.
So glad @realDonaldTrump cares enough about our economy to tweet out a LIE about a major American company & make its stock price jump around— Dan Slott (@DanSlott) December 6, 2016
But no worries about Obama's "healthcare" plan costing taxpayers tons, huh? Not even how illegal immigrants have exploited it?
CRAZY— Dan Slott (@DanSlott) December 7, 2016
Trump's Secret Security is costing NY taxpayers' $1MM a day.
Now that's being used as a feature to SELL space!https://t.co/E3JzshRzwU
Yeah, as if previous presidents never spent as much. Just take a look at these articles about how much Obama spent. Leftists like Slott are always looking for every excuse they can think of and find to attack somebody they don't agree with. And it's clear he's going to continue with this nonsense for a long time to come.
