Opinari - Latin term for Opinion. Opinari.net is just what it seems: a cornucopia of rants, raves and poignant soliloquy.

Saturday, September 20, 2003

Are you joking? Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, etc. are apparently the latest propaganda tool of the left. The Justice League of America, in the September issue of the comic, have decided to rail against "unilateralism", going so far as to depict Lex Luthor as the President of the U.S.

According to Brent Bozell's Town Hall column:

Superman then tells President Luthor that millions of people are protesting worldwide. "No one supports what you're doing," says Super Pollster.

"I hear them," says the evil president, "but I can't listen to them." When Superman says perhaps an attack could be delayed for more proof, the president retorts, "Where do you get off questioning me? ... It's unbecoming to question your president during times of international unrest." He says Batman and Wonder Woman were removed from the room because "they were confusing you with unpatriotic talk."

An allegory of the UN's dealings with George W. Bush? Unmistakably so, I think. It's a shame that the comics are being used to propagandize readers. Then again, we should expect as much.
