Marvel! Readers tire of partisan comics

From Christian Toto at Hollywood in Toto:

The Marvel universe has embraced diversity with a passion. And it doesn’t simply mean a glut of new characters who better represent the culture’s ethnic and gender diversity. The comic book company radically transformed its most beloved stars.

Iron Man is now a black teenage girl. Thor is a woman. Captain America is black. Ms. Marvel is a Muslim teenage girl.

And then there’s the company’s partisan storytelling, Last year, Marvel tweaked the classic villain Modok to look and sound like Donald Trump. A recent “Captain America” story cast anti-immigration foes as the villains. More.

It was a huge hit with everyone but the readers.  As Marvel’s VP of Sales David Gabriel recently whiffled,

What we heard was that people didn’t want any more diversity. They didn’t want female characters out there. That’s what we heard, whether we believe that or not. I don’t know that that’s really true, but that’s what we saw in sales.

Reality check: We believe it even if he doesn’t. Readers’ tastes hadn’t changed at all. The company was being pressured by Correctness thugs, and the thugs are not the market.

This helps us see why political correctness eventually requires government control even of trivial media. Just think, lots of jobs for junior jackboots once they graduate from assaulting the profs with whom they disagree.

Note: Comment of the week, below: Wonder Woman and Rogue were actual characters, not props for Social Justice. If the clowns running Marvel can’t tell the difference, there’s no hope for them.

“Welcome to Europe’s 4 capitals of anti-Semitism”

If I wrote from the point of view of my personal interest as a non Jew, I would tell Europe’s Jews: stay here, on our side, because your departure would bring irreparable harm. If I look at what better serves the interests of the Jews, it would not be so unthinkable to advise them to pack and leave for Israel, as thousands are doing every year.

If the Jews want to live in a healthy, free, democratic, tolerant and modern Europe, they have to fight for Israel. Separating the fate of European Jews from that of Israel is the greatest deception of the anti-Semites, from the Iranian ayatollahs to the leftist radical chic.

Anti-Israel ‘Parking Tickets’ Placed on Cars at University of Michigan-Dearborn by ‘2 People in Muslim Garb,’ Witness Says

Mock parking tickets on the windshields of cars in a University of Michigan at Dearborn (UM-Dearborn) lot last month — which accused Israel of “ethnic cleansing” and other crimes – were placed there by two people in “Muslim garb,” a witness told The Algemeiner on Wednesday.

UM-Dearborn student Amanda Gosline said that on March 22 she saw the individuals distributing the fake tickets, reminiscent of the mock “eviction notices” posted on dorm room doors by anti-Israel students at New York University, Connecticut College and others.

Barbara Kay: At Ryerson, a rare win for Jewish groups on campus

Last November, at Ryerson University, Students for Justice in Palestine and the Muslim Students Association led a walkout of Ryerson Student Union’s (RSU) Semi-annual General Meeting in order to suspend quorum, when the group Students Supporting Israel (SSI) brought forward a motion endorsing Holocaust Education Week. Without quorum, the motion was unable to pass.

It was later discovered that the RSU executive was complicit in the walkout.


I want to take this opportunity to introduce readers to Canary Mission, they have done an excellent job exposing the ingrained anti-semitism of Muslim student activists, professors and fellow travelers at universities throughout North America.

Have a look at the search results for Ryerson University.

My point being that anti-semitism is bred in the bone Islam, these “anti-Zionists” are not outliers, rather their views are representative of commonly held beliefs within the Muslim community. Beliefs our quisling political class deliberately ignore to our peril.

German boy beaten, kicked by Muslim schoolmates after telling them he is Jewish

BERLIN — The case of a British Jewish child forced to leave his Berlin school after being subjected to anti-Semitic violence has provoked outrage and soul-searching in Germany.

The 14-year-old, who cannot be named under child protection laws, was beaten, kicked and threatened with a replica gun after he revealed to fellow pupils that he was Jewish.

He endured a campaign of intimidation by Muslim pupils who told him “Muslims hate Jews. All Jews are murderers.”

His British mother, who asked not to be named to protect the identity of her son, told the The Daily Telegraph the school had done little to stop the bullying.

“They told us this is normal for adolescents from this background, that they’re just trying to find their identity,” she said. “But it shouldn’t be normal. I’ve never experienced such direct anti-Semitism before in all the years I’ve lived in Germany.”

…The family arranged for the boy’s grandparents – both Holocaust survivors – to give a talk to pupils. But his mother remained dismayed at the lack of support from the school. “They didn’t want to know,” she said.

Singapore Deports Imam For Comments Against Jews, Christians

Bravo to Singapore. Every nation that believes in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness should expel, deport, purge their countries of this poisonous ideology.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, are you paying attention?

The B.C. hate speech trial that nobody’s heard about

With Parliament’s anti-Islamophobia motion in the news recently and the country divided over the issue of freedom of speech as it applies to criticizing identifiable groups, it’s strikingly odd that a real live hate speech trial – the first in B.C. in about a decade – concluded this month with a controversial sentencing, yet barely a whisper from the media.

The Real Trump Link in the Threats on Jews

The arrest of a Jewish American-Israeli teen for making hundreds of bomb threats against American Jewish institutions in recent months seems to put paid to the favorite explanation advanced by both American Jews and the broader American left–i.e., that Donald Trump’s election empowered right-wing anti-Semites, leading to an upsurge in anti-Semitic acts. Yet the fact remains that the number of threats did jump dramatically following Trump’s election, to a degree that seems hard to attribute to mere coincidence. Now, new disclosures by the Israeli police provide a way to square that circle. It turns out the sudden increase was, in fact, connected to Trump’s election–not because of anything Trump did or didn’t do, but because of media’s hysterical reaction to it.
