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.

YOUR CHOICE: A GREEN AMERICA OR A BROWN AMERICA

In celebration of Earth Day this Saturday, let’s review how the Sierra Club sold its soul and screwed the Earth for a $100 million donation. They must hate themselves for it, so why shouldn’t we hate them, too?

After Teddy Kennedy’s 1965 immigration act began dumping millions of Third-Worlders on the country, the Sierra Club talked of little else besides reducing immigration.

In 1970, the club adopted a resolution complaining that the country’s growing population was polluting the “air, water and land” — to the point that “our very survival (is) threatened.”

In 1978, the Sierra Club adopted a resolution urging Congress to “conduct a thorough examination of U.S. immigration laws,” noting that the United States, Canada and Australia were the only countries admitting “more than a handful of permanent immigrants.”

In 1980, the club dropped its promotion of birth control, in order to focus on immigration. “It is obvious,” the club said, “that the numbers of immigrants the United States accepts affects our population size and growth rate,” even more than “the number of children per family.”

In 1989, the club’s Population Report expressly called for reducing the number of immigrants.

In 1990, the club’s grassroots leaders voted overwhelmingly to launch a major national campaign on the immigration problem.

Would any of this be of interest to an alleged environmental group? It used to be — until the early 2000s.

That was when the Sierra Club was given $100 million by hedge fund billionaire David Gelbaum in exchange for never opposing immigration again. The club said, How dare you ask us to abandon our principles for filthy lucre!

Just kidding! It said, SURE! Did you bring the check?

Mass Third World immigration is a triple whammy for the environment because:

1) Millions more people are tromping through our country;

2) The new people do not share Americans’ love of nature and cleanliness; and

3) We’re not allowed to criticize them.

Conservative MPs on aviation security: “Trudeau is taking us for fools”

On April 12, 2017, opposition MPs grilled Prime Minister Trudeau on aviation security following a report aired on the Quebec French-language station TVA which claimed that four employees at Trudeau International Airport in Montreal, one of whom had access to runways and was investigated by police, were stripped of their security clearance due to concerns of radicalization and support for the Islamic State.

Canada says it needs more Syrian refugees

Just as most nations are closing their doors to refugees and migrants worldwide, one stands alone holding the door wide open for the overflow from the world’s conflicts; Canada. The Trudeau administration has just announced it will take in another 10,000 Syrian refugees as quickly as possible, regardless of cost or consequence.

State Media Paints Stockholm Terrorist as Potential Victim of Poverty in Uzbekistan

Sveriges Television (SVT) Russia and central Asia correspondent Elin Jönsson wrote on Saturday that while authorities “know nothing yet about the motive” for the attack, “many young people in Uzbekistan are poor, and become easy prey for Islamist organisations.”

Describing Uzbekistan as “extremely oppressive”,  the SVT correspondent asserted that the policies of former Soviet republics to limit religious practice “led to a radicalization of many Muslims.

However, according to Dagens Nyheter, the suspect traveled to Sweden to make money, and was described as a ‘typical family man’ who ‘worked hard to make money for the family.’

‘I thought I was going to die’: Christian man claims he was attacked on the train by group of Muslim teens screaming ‘f**k Jesus’ and “Allah” before they ‘ripped off his crucifix’

Mike, who did not wish to give his full name, said five teenagers physically attacked him and his girlfriend as he rode on a train between Campsie and Bankstown, in the city’s south-west, on Tuesday afternoon.

Baptist reverend George Capsis, who is a family friend of Mike, claimed there had been a spate of attacks on Christians in south-west Sydney, adding he had told his parishioners in Croydon to be wary.

‘This country is nominally Christian, you shouldn’t have to hide your crucifix or your faith,’ he said.

Sweden and the Predictable Sunni Islamist Terrorist Path in Europe: PC Collateral Damage

Sunni Islamist terrorism is a daily reality for Shia Muslims in several nations based on the Takfiri mindset that deems all and sundry to be either an apostate or that non-Muslims are infidels and worthy of killing. Europe is now witnessing the growing reality of Sunni Islamist terrorism, while the intrigues of the Muslim Brotherhood hope to utilise the naivety of certain European nations that are tolerating a major influx of migrants. After all, Gulf petrodollars and Takfiri versions of Islam are penetrating past indigenous Sunni Muslim traditions in Europe, thereby in some cities in Europe, it is noticeable that dress codes and mindsets are changing.

Airbnb host cancels Asian woman’s reservation at the last minute, telling her: ‘It’s why we have Trump’

Airbnb has banned a woman in California for listing her home on their site after she cancelled an Asian student’s booking, telling her: “This is why we have Trump.”

In the video, accompanied by text messages showing their conversation, she explains that she asked why their booking had been cancelled.

“And she said: ‘One word says it all: Asian. It’s why we have Trump.’ ”

Miss Suh, choking back tears, said she told the host that she would report her to Airbnb.

“We can’t have foreigners telling us what to do,” the host responded, according to Miss Suh.

Miss Suh, who emigrated from South Korea when she was three, said it shows the depth of racism in the US.

Writing on Facebook after the February incident, she pointed out it was far worse for people with darker skin or Muslims.

The New Pecking Order: Muslims Over Gays

Crimes committed by Muslims against gays are largely (if not totally) ignored by the political left and the gay rights movement. Neither Madonna nor Meryl Streep will stand before mass audiences and sob over the brutal execution of gays by Muslims in Mosul, because this assaults their ideological narrative of political correctness. And that ideological narrative is what matters most to them, not the gays or others they claim to love. In fact, you’re labeled a hater and extremist if you even call attention to these events…

Sweden’s Prime Minister Stefan Lofven place flowers at Queens Street after the terror attack on Drottninggatan

A suspected terrorist targeted young children as he drove a hijacked lorry into a crowded shopping street in Stockholm, witnesses claimed last night.

Infants’ buggies were sent “flying through the air”, one Swedish broadcaster reported, as the vehicle zigzagged along the pedestrianised Queen Street shopping district and embedded itself in the window of a department store.

“It swerved from side to side. It didn’t look out of control, it was trying to hit people,” a second witness, Glen Foran, an Australian tourist, told Reuters. “It hit people, it was terrible. It hit a pram with a kid in it, demolished it.”
