These folks are way too serious about themselves…
Which is a kind way to say their heads are so far up their rear ends, they couldn’t see daylight with a nightscope and a flashlight.
As you may have noticed – the New Captain America is black…Couldn’t possibly be at the root of the Racist News Network, Faux New’s “problem”…
Nick Spencer, the writer of ‘Captain America: Sam Wilson,’ discusses bringing the black Captain America to life and Fox and Friends’ boneheaded criticisms of his comic book.
Sam Wilson, a.k.a. Captain America, was only trying to be a hero when he flew to the U.S.-Mexico border in Arizona to investigate the disappearance of a Mexican teenager in the first issue of Nick Spencer’s Captain America: Sam Wilson. Once there, the star-spangled Avenger faced off against one of Cap’s oldest enemies, the Sons of the Serpent—a white supremacist terror group suspected of kidnapping and possibly killing Mexicans caught crossing the desert.
The masked Serpents, with their big guns and their big, muscly arms, resemble a militarized Ku Klux Klan and spew recognizable Trump-isms at a group of unarmed immigrants. They lovingly refer to a hypothetical “mighty Wall,” accuse all Mexicans of stealing jobs, seeking welfare, and bringing “trouble and disease and crime,” and piously invoke America’s “greatness.”
“Also,” the Serpents’ leader booms at the immigrants, “You know how you make me press a 1 for English at the beginning of every call to my satellite provider?That is something I cannot abide!”
In writing a racist group of armed vigilantes who violently attack, abduct, or kill border crossers into his book, Spencer didn’t expect anyone to sympathize, let alone defend what he thought was an obvious common enemy. The good hosts of Fox and Friends proved him wrong.
In a segment aired earlier this month, Fox News correspondent Clayton Morris decried Cap’s latest clash with the Serpents as a blatant slight “against conservatives” and dismissed Sam Wilson’s now year-long stint as Captain America as a “PR stunt” (in the same breath, Morris also points out that Sam, formerly the Falcon, “is, uh, African American”). Morris, an alleged “comics expert,” also called the Serpents a “new, odd enemy” for Cap (they’ve been around since 1966).
Co-host Tucker Carlson also sympathized with the Serpents’ leader, calling him just “an American who has misgivings upon unlimited illegal immigration and the costs associated with it.” Fellow co-host Heather Childers called for writers to “keep politics out of comic books”—except for storylines about “the people who are working the border to keep us safe.”…Read the interview with Nick Spencer here…
