The left fawn over hate-group Black Lives Matter. But the rest of us aren’t buying it.
Ever since President Obama’s reckless words, this group has found excuses to spread hate in our country. They have turned many young black men and women against the police. The very people sworn to protect them, BLM attacks.
That’s not to mention the riff they’ve made between white and black Americans. Instead of bringing us together, they drive a wedge. Instead of finding common ground, they highlight the small differences.
It’s clear that Black Lives Matter is a racist hate group that paints all white people as evil. Their books, websites, and propaganda attack a large group of Americans over the color of their skin. And the left thinks nothing of it.
But now perhaps the tide is turning. People are learning that most Americans refuse to accept the lies of BLM. Companies that try to embrace this group are losing.
It was just last month that Marvel’s vice president of sales and marketing let slip that replacing classic comic superheroes with characters and storylines that were more politically motivated was hurting the company’s bottom line.
The most blatant of these was a Black Lives Matter-themed series featuring the Black Panther, soon to be the center of his own Marvel movie, starring Chadwick Boseman. After only two issues, the series has been axed because of poor sales.
“Black Panther & The Crew,” by Ta-Nehisi Coates and Yona Harvey, followed Black Panther, Luke Cage, and other Marvel characters as they investigated the death of a civil rights activist in a near future, in which privatized police have taken over Harlem.
The series was blatantly political, with not-so-veiled connections to the Black Lives Matter movement.
Those that don’t follow comics as closely as yours truly may not know about this trend. But it’s a known fact that many writers and artists in the comics are wildly liberal. They use superhero comics as an excuse to spread their hateful rhetoric.
Long-time characters have had their race changed, been transgendered, over even “come out” as gay. They’ve targeted Donald Trump during the election with hateful and disgusting images. They’ve used superhero comics as a platform to slander conservatives and shove liberal dogma down young readers’ throats.
This BLM-inspired comic is only the most recent attempt to make superhero comics liberal. But it’s another sign that fans aren’t interested. Taking beloved characters and abusing them to send political messages does not resonate with readers.
Unlike the successful movies, superhero comics are flagging. This is clearly because of the political and liberal bent their creators have been on during the last five to ten years.
Only now are they seeing the light. Perhaps it’s not too late for them to change course.
