One of the most unfortunate scenes of the deadly violence instigated by Donald Trump last week was when several pro-Trump thugs wore Captain America’s shields while looting the Capitol.
After all, as many people pointed out at the time, Captain America is well known in some respects.Such as him defend Democracy instead of trying to overthrow democracy like Trump’s supporters, because they interrupted the proof of Joe Biden’s legitimate election victory. Moreover, he is an enemy of genocidal fascists, rather than proudly linking himself to them as many Trump supporters do in their violence. Of course, he is a patriot, and unlike the traitor who initiated the American Civil War, the latter’s Trump rioters are waving the flag.
Naturally, fans of Marvel̵
“My father Jack Kirby and his partner Joe Simon founded Captain America in 1941. Perhaps the most iconic symbol of patriotism since “Spirit” in 1776, Captain America It has always been a symbol and protector of our democracy and rule. The law for the past 79 years was created by two Jews from New York who hated Nazis and bullies. Captain America stood up for the losers. When the story was written, even Before he gained strength and talents from Army scientists, he always represented justice and never gave in.
“At the age of 72, I have a very vivid personal memory of every political and cultural turmoil since the Castro Revolution in the mid-1950s. Coupled with the story of my father, I might be able to draw A photo of the battlefield in northern France surrounding Metz during the Second World War.” Kirby continued. “However, the incident that occurred in our country’s Capitol on January 6 was a riot inspired and instigated by our own president and will always haunt me.”
“While watching one of the horror videos of the storm in the Capitol, I thought I noticed someone in Trump/Carport. American T-shirt! I was shocked and depressed,” Kirby continued. “I believe I can even catch a glimpse of a person wearing a Captain America shield. A quick Google search made Trump the Captain America, wearing a T-shirt, poster and even the national flag! These images are disgusting and shameful.”
And, just in case there is ambiguity, Kirby added: “Captain America is the absolute opposite of Donald Trump. Captain America is selfless, Trump is selfish. Captain America is fighting for our country and democracy. , And Trump fights for personal power and dictatorship. Where Captain America stands with ordinary people, Trump stands with powerful and privileged people. Where Captain America is brave, Trump is A coward. Captain America and Trump are the same again.”
He concluded: “My father Jack Kirby and Joe Simon, the creator of Captain America and World War II veterans, will definitely be troubled by these pictures.” These images are an insult to their two memories. If Donald Trump possesses the qualities and character of Captain America, the White House will become a shining symbol of truth and integrity, rather than a cesspool of annoying lies and hypocrisy. Several of our presidents share the same values as Captain America. Donald Trump is not one of them. “
So, to review: Captain America thinks fascists are bad.
