Several comic writers see only what they want in Ferguson riots

For the past week or so, there's been a race riot in Ferguson, Missouri, started when a police officer shot a robber at a store. But some comic book writers don't want to see all the facts, or prefer to rely on leftist sources for their info. Let's start with Sam Humphries, who's written some of the X-Men stories of recent:

He relies on a would-be reporter who's either not telling everything, or denies that at least 12 eyewitnesses were found by a St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter telling that suspect Mike Brown "bum-rushed" the officer Darren Wilson, and caused him a serious eye injury. According to this additional news (also via Gateway Pundit):
The officer who shot and killed an unarmed teenager in Ferguson, Missouri was injured in the alleged altercation, according to Ferguson Chief of Police Tom Jackson.

Jackson, who spoke on the phone with News 4′s Laura Hettiger Wednesday morning, said the officer “was hit” and the “side of his face was swollen.” The chief did not say if the officer suffered any broken bones.
And the whole "hands up" story initially reported has also come unglued. Humphries and the following are also disinterested in how the supposedly "peaceful" protestors also threw molotov cocktails and urine containers at the police, and the Post-Dispatch has suspended/fired the reporter who did what they asked and spoke to witnesses (H/T: Front Page Magazine). Nor do they seem particularly interested in CAIR/Hamas involvement in the riots, nor that of ISIS. Some of the rioters didn't even come from the city.

Now, here's some of the other so-called pros besides Humphries:

If that's what he thinks, how come he hasn't posted the same data Jim Hoft and Pamela Geller did? No wonder Slott is an equivalent of J. Jonah Jameson.

If the MSM were honest, they wouldn't suppress the whole story. What, is Waid suggesting St. Louis is a police state?

What about media accountability? Does Waid really think J. Jonah Jameson's MO is justified?

Wow, he relies on that crappy site to deliver the facts? I knew it, Waid has sold out to J. Jonah Jameson and Bethany Snow's angle.

And that's because Marz has no wish to do so. Otherwise, he would've reported what Jim Hoft did, along with this latest news that officer Wilson is afraid to go out of his house, and the MSM hasn't made his situation any better. Curiously enough, he does take issue with a CNN contributor:

Sometimes, I have noticed him being critical of CNN, which is odd, since you'd think they're a news company he agrees with, and he does seem like the kind of man who thinks J. Jonah Jameson's tactics are fine.

Seriously? This is just what race hustlers like Al Sharpton do want people to think, ditto the MSM that intially concealed some of the facts, yet Simone acts like that didn't happen. Nor does she seem particularly worried about the publicity seekers exploiting this travesty for their own agendas.

Let's also add some tweets by a CBR reporter:

What would he say if a CNN or NBC reporter did what he's accusing Hannity of? I'm not saying Hannity can't do wrong, but based on the info I found, it's hardly what Phegley's saying it is. He may claim to side with the direction of Clark Kent and Lois Lane, but in reality, he takes that of J. Jonah Jameson and Bethany Snow.

Such irresponsible writers/reporters are doing no favors for comicdom. I hesitate to think what plans Waid might have to inject a metaphor for this case into Daredevil, if he's still writing it, much like he did with the Zimmerman/Martin case the other year.

Update: here's a few more from other leftist comic writers:

I guess that means the original riots in Tahrir square really were for the sake of "freedom", one that saw CBS reporter Lara Logan fall victim to pure horror along with the brief rise of one tyrant called Mohammed Morsi. Thank goodness he didn't last long in his undeserved role.

Mainstream press propagandists make hard jobs ever more so. What's his point?

Sigh. What does he expect when scores of hooligans turn up with no interests other than wanton destruction and looting?

What about newspaper editors who take their anger out on employees who did what they were asked? Conway wrote Spider-Man at two points in his career between 1968-93, and you'd think he'd know what he was talking about. Does that mean today he sides with J. Jonah Jameson?

Labels: , , , ,

You can add Gerry Duggan and G. Willow Wilson to the list now.

How is this not hyperbolic?


Found some more tweets by those two, and already added them.

The guy who got shot was black. That's all that Waid, Marz, Simone, Wilson, and Slott need to know. He must have been an innocent child, and the cop must be a trigger-happy racist. No need to get more facts, or to consider the circumstances of the shooting.

And these people consider themselves "free thinkers," and they say that anyone who disagrees with them must be racist, sexist, and "prejudiced."

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch has suspended or fired the reporter for interviewing witnesses who backed the cop's account of the incident. And the US Justice Department tried to suppress the convenience store video showing the 6'4", 300-pound "unarmed teen" roughing up the clerk.

The Associated Press style manual instructs reporters to use the word "youth" for someone 13-17 years old, and "man" or "woman" for persons 18 and older. Yet the media constantly refer to the decedent, who was 18, as a "teen," "youth," and even as a "child."

Proof that the leftists are more interested in spreading memes that support their agenda than they are in objectively examining the facts.

And the tweets show that Waid, Marz, and the rest of these brats are more interested in posting snarky one-liners than having a serious conversation.

Twitter's character limitations mean that it can't handle in-depth discussions of complicated topics. But the same can be said of the people who use it.

I really hate it when people whiter than me lecture me about racism.

Gerry Conway? Seriously? This is the guy who created a character who shoots people on a daily basis because of a personal vendetta. He also killed off Gwen Stacy for fun.
