Marvel Comics: Captain America Says Tea Parties Are Wrong

Marvel Comic’s Captain America is the mightiest soldier with the super powerful secret soldier formula that makes him a super man. Sadly, this muscle bound hero that took on the whole Nazi army during WWII seems to be afraid of those American people who’ve joined the Tea Party movement. Not only is Cappy quaking in his little red booties, but he’s sure that the Tea Party folks are dangerous racists, too.

Isn’t it wonderful that a decades old American comic book hero is now being used to turn readers against our very political system, being used to slander folks that are standing up for real American principles in real life — and one called “Captain America” at that?

In issue number 602 of Captain America, a new story line has begun called “Two Americas.” In it the current Captain (there have been a few of them, apparently) is on the trail of a faux Captain America that is mentally deranged and getting chummy with some white supremacist, anti-government, survivalists types going by the name of “the Watchdogs.” While investigating this subversive group, Captain America and his partner The Falcon — a black super hero — have decided to try and infiltrate the secretive organization.

In preparation for the infiltration, Marvel Comics depicts the two super heroes out of costume and observing from a rooftop a street filled with what can only be described as a Tea Party protest. The scene shows crowds of people in city streets carrying signs that say, “stop the socialists,” “tea bag libs before they tea bag you,” and “no to new taxes.” Naturally, the people in these crowds are depicted as being filled with nothing but white folks.

The black character asks the out of costume Captain, “What the hell is this?” And follows that with, “looks like some kind of anti-tax protest.” The Falcon character then snidely tells his partner the Captain, “So I guess this whole ‘hate the government’ vibe around here isn’t limited to the Watchdogs.”

The two then discuss their plan to infiltrate the subversive group that Marvel comics seems to be linking to the Tea Party movement. This discussion culminates in The Falcon wondering how a black man would do such a thing. “I don’t exactly see a black man from Harlem fitting in with a bunch of angry white folks,” he tells the incognito Captain America.

The Captain tells him, “no it’s perfect… this all fits right into my plan.” After this we find that the Captain’s plan is to send the black man into a redneck bar to pretend to be a black man working for the IRS and to get everyone all mad… because… well, you know that every white person is a racist that hates black civil servants, right?

So, there you have it, America. Tea Party protesters just “hate the government,” they are racists, they are all white folks, they are angry, and they associate with secretive white supremacist groups that want to over throw the U.S. government.

If ANYONE has EVER read Captain America, they'd know what a bunch of BS this is.

War is an extension of economics and diplomacy through other means.

Economics and diplomacy are methods of securing resources used by humans.

Securing resources is the one necessary behavior for all living things.

War = Life

i think ir's funny that a bunch of disorganised and fractioned blue hairs, who are JUST getting into what the "left" has said for 40 years is JUST discovering that big government is BIG governemt so late in the game.
we don't hear as many telling protestors to "shut up" or "love it or leave it" like we did.

however, JUST like the long hairs, they can't focus, or don't kmow where to aim..
but, it's so nice to see them finally stop kissing authorities azz.
now, let a few get bloody heads like the old chicago days, and we'll ALL know where to rally.

the next BIG movement, ( besides old peoples bowels) will be the old hippie standby life style, and make the BIGGEST impact.
this NEW/OLD trend, when it hits, will speak quiet volumes, and change america forever, and will involve young and old. the reverb from it IS and WILL shake the controllers to their knees..
the minumalist movemnet.

and HOW does it FEEL?
lol
i can remember when being against the big money war in Nam was unamerican and obviously a commie plot because REAL americans would NEVER question the heads of state.
yeah, right.
so, NOW the shoe is on the other foot, HOWEVER, at least so far, it's CARTOONS in propaganda, and NOT COINTELPRO up the wazoo.

now, what IS funny, is there's MORE than a few old hippies, into the TEABAG thingy.
so, they almost have the protesting right, but can't figure out where and how to aim it.

and NOW we're back where we were some thirty years ago, when our newly elected goverment, jumped into bed with the big multi national corps and ran away with the spoon.
and the teabags are a day late, and a dollar short.
and the corps have SO much money ( ours) and SO mush power, ( not ours) that we are left, ( odd turn of events) with shlt.
so, the course of action , is hard, but plain..
first, it's gotta admit ( the middle working class) that it IS middle working class. and stop letting the rich ride their coat tails, like it's already riding it's azz.

americans got to realise that when they organise, that they keep OUT the mob.
( MOB)

and then, they have to quit buying up and into every damn cheap thing they want, regardless of where it comes from.
hey gang, china might own us, but we don't have to keep buying everything from them.
we're in this because we've "bought " the ploy..
and now we're a stuffed goose.

if we don't take a good crap, we're cooked.

You know they brought Cap back, right?

Yes I know Cap is back after the asssasination attempt, but that's not my point. I just found the Civil War to be a lot more open in its politics than this tiny remark. Even before Disney ownership Marvel has largely been neither right nor left but always anti-dictatorship and anti-criminal. If the publishers & writers see something as a danger they comment on it. The long running theme of the Marvel Universe is about being on the side that is always facing the possibility of being the victims of genocide for being different and still trying to prevent it.
