“Superman” to the Rescue After Salon.com Writer Brands Hallmark Christmas Movies as “Fascist Propaganda”

FoxNews.com reports that

Hallmark veteran actor Dean Cain is coming to the network’s defense after a website published a contentious article claiming its holiday movies are “fascist propaganda.”

Cain appeared on Friday’s episode of “Fox & Friends” and blasted Salon.com and its writer, Amanda Marcotte, for spewing out “terrible” allegations against Hallmark on Wednesday.

Marcotte’s article titled “Hallmark movies are fascist propaganda,” released on Christmas, argued that the network’s holiday film schedule is “like a trip into an uncanny valley of shiny-teethed, blow-dried heteronormative whiteness, with only a few token movies with characters of color.”

“We are not allowed to accept creatives that are deemed controversial,” a Hallmark account representative reportedly said in an email exchange with a Zola ad buyer.

Cain, who has appeared in 10 Hallmark movies, shared that the article was “the most ridiculous thing” to wake up to and read on Christmas morning.

“It’s insane because Hallmark movies are about love,” Cain told the “Fox & Friends” hosts. “They’re about bringing people together. They’re not about division or anything of that nature.”

The actor, also known for his role as Superman/Clark Kent in the TV series “Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman,” claimed Hallmark films are “the farthest thing from fascism that exists out there.”

“If you want to know who the fascist is, look who wrote the article,” Cain continued. “They’re the fascists telling you what you should believe or what you have to do, or you have to conform to their view of what society should be, which is completely insane.”

Cain admitted he has not appeared in a Hallmark film for a “couple years,” but still found Salon’s bashing of Hallmark “a boldface attack on Christmas and love.”

“It’s just a bunch of hate,” Cain said.

Marcotte shared her controversial piece on Twitter on Wednesday, and then defended her words hours later after receiving mixed criticism.

“Laughing at the right-wingers calling me ‘joyless’ because I think Hallmark movies are dumb. I think someone’s life is joyless if their only source of entertainment is such empty schmaltz. What a depressing life, free of real, satisfying entertainments and hobbies,” the writer tweeted.

Hallmark has been ensnared in controversy this month, following the channel’s decision to pull an advertisementthat featured two brides kissing during a same-sex wedding ceremony. The network ultimately responded to the controversy by reinstating the commercialdays later.

Actress Hilarie Burton doubled down on the allegations by accusing Hallmark of letting her go from a Hallmark job after she voiced her support for including an LGBTQ character, an interracial couple and diverse casting.

Liberals try to screw up everything to fit their distorted world view.

If there was a demand for movies such as Hilarie Burton is advocating for, Hallmark would already be showing them.

Television programmers schedule programs which will give them the largest viewing audience.

Quite frankly, programming for 1% of a potential viewing audience would not do that.

Dean “Superman” Cain is exactly right.

Modern American Liberals are the true fascists.

For years now, I have referred to the intolerant political ideology of Modern American Liberals as “The New Fascism” because of their intolerance toward traditional Americans Faith and Values, including our relationship with our closest ally, since their birth as a country in 1948.

What we are seeing now, as regards the “Four Horsewomen of the Apocalypse” and the growing radical movement to the Left of the Political Spectrum, which includes anti-Semitism, of the Democratic Party, which began under Former President Barack Hussein Obama, is a result of an amalgamation of the political philosophies of the special interest groups who have replaced average Americans as the Democrats’ Voting Base.

Anti-Semitism is the norm in Marxism in all of its forms, fascism, and, of course, Islam.

All of these political philosophies are the anti-thesis of who the Far Left Democrats claim to be.

Ladies and gentlemen, I firmly believe that America is in the middle of fighting a new war against fascism.

It’s not a war that is being fought with guns and bullets, But instead, it is being fought with a strictly Political Impeachment of President Trump, fueled by anonymous sources, unproven baseless accusations, and the Vanguard of the Modern Democratic Party, the Main Stream Media.

It’s not our Brightest and Best who are dying on this field of battle, but rather, it is our Constitutional Freedoms and our form of government, including our System of Checks and Balances, which are dying an ignoble death, pierced by the arrows of socialism and political correctness.

A form of government unique to America, a Constitutional Republic, which the clueless Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, in a deflective move, has identified as “fascistic”.

By now, there’s some out there in the audience saying, “Oh Lord, the crazy old cracker’s overreacting again.”

No, Skippy, I’m not.

If you try to talk to a Liberal about this New Fascism, they will deny that there is any fascism going on at all. In fact, they will tell you that their radicalism “the will of the people” and they will site Democratically stacked push polls in order to back their opinion up.

Liberals can not legitimately defend their positions, such as the suppression of the Second Amendment Rights of average Americans, the Silent Coup began by those members of the DOJ and FBI during the Obama Administration against now-President Trump, the “Caining” of Judge Kavanaugh, and the Political Impeachment of President Trump, all caused by the  taking over of the Democratic Party by a bunch of wild-eyed anti-American radicals.

Fascism, in any form, remains indefensible.

All of this political unethical behavior by the Far Left Democrats is reminiscent of both the Russian Revolution and Hitler and his Brown Shirts’ “Beer Hall Putsch” which probably should have been expected, given the “New Bolsheviks” track record of Liberal Intolerance and aversion to opposing viewpoints.

Ronald Reagan, during an interview with Mike Wallace on 12/14/75, quipped…

“You know, someone very profoundly once said many years ago that if fascism ever comes to America, it will come in the name of liberalism.”

The man was a prophet.

Now, if you will excuse me, I think I will go back in to the living room and join my bride in watching one of those Hallmark Christmas Movies which sent that Salon.com writer into a rant…just because I can.

Until He Comes,

The Politicization of Superman: From “Truth, Justice, and the American Way” to Pandering, Social Justice, and the Liberal Way

 

george-reeves-as-superman

On Saturday Mornings growing up in the 60s in Memphis, TN, like every other red-blooded American Male, my eyes would pop open at 6:00 a.m. and I would race into the den to turn on Channel 3, the local CBS Affiliate, and would settle down with my bowl of cereal to watch “The Adventures of Superman” starring George Reeves.

As the program came on, I would hear the following narration, which would be come engrained into the hearts of American boys and girls of that era for the rest of their lives…

Narrator: Faster than a speeding bullet. More powerful than a locomotive. Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.

Man 1: Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird.

Woman: It’s a plane

Man 2: It’s Superman!

Narrator: Yes, it’s Superman, strange visitor from another planet who came to earth with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men. Superman, who can change the course of mighty rivers, bend steel in his bare hands. And who, disguised as Clark Kent, mild-mannered reporter for a great metropolitan newspaper, fights a never ending battle for truth, justice and the American way. And now another exciting episode in the adventures of Superman.

Well, boys and girls, evidently, the Liberals at DC Comics, up there in New York City have decided that “Truth, Justice, and the American Way” just isn’t “cool” anymore.

So, they decided that Superman needed to side with those who have broken our laws and entered our Sovereign Nation illegally.

According to The Hollywood Reporter in an article titled “Superman Protects Undocumented Workers From Armed White Supremacist in Latest Comic”…

The moment in the book released Wednesday comes a week after President Trump ended DACA. 

Perhaps it is just a coincidence, but perhaps not. 

In the recent issue of Action Comics #987, “The Oz Effect,” released Wednesday, Superman arrives in the nick of time to protect a group of undocumented immigrants from a white man sporting an American flag bandanna, wielding a machine gun, who is going to shoot them for taking his job. 

Superman blocks the bullets before they hit the terrified people. 

“Stop this!” Superman orders the gunman.

“Why?!” he responds. “They ruined me! Stole from me!” 

Grabbing the gunman by the collar and pulling him in close, Superman says, “The only person responsible for the blackness smothering your soul — is you!” 

Police arrive, and Superman hands over the gunman and tells officers to make sure the victims are “safe and cared for.” An officer responds, “Anything you say, Superman!” 

The moment comes just one week after President Donald Trump made the controversial announcement that he was ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy put in place by former President Barack Obama. He then gave Congress a window to save the program.

Still, the decision was decried by politicians, civil groups and celebrities alike. Nearly 800,000 individuals, known as Dreamers, have received protection to stay in the country through the program. 

In addition to the DACA announcement, Trump was also slammed for comments he made just a few weeks prior when he appeared to be defending a group of white nationalists holding a rally in Charlottesville, Va., at which one protester to the rally was killed and numerous others injured. 

Action Comics #987 is by Dan Jurgens, Viktor Bogdanovic, Jonathan Glapion, Jay Leisten and Mike Spicer. 

I posted this story today, because the Far Left Side of the Political Spectrum, which took over the Democratic Party and evidently, the Comic Book Industry as well, has so turned our country’s traditions and values on it’s ear, that, to them and those young skulls full of mush whom they were able to brainwash, right is wrong and wrong is right.

The “Day Without Immigrants”, which was held seven months ago, is one such example.

They purposely left one very important word out of the title of their “mass demonstration”:

ILLEGAL.

Since the birth of our nation, immigrants from all over the world, have made long and treacherous journeys to this “Shining City Upon a Hill, where they came to become AMERICANS, swearing an Oath of Allegiance to OUR COUNTRY, an oath taken “without hesitation or purpose of evasion”.

They came here in compliance with our nation’s laws.

These Illegal Aliens, including the overwhelming influx of tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors, which were dropped off at our border by the Drug Cartels, during the Obama Administration and secreted away to be dispersed throughout the country, are not the same, no matter what Modern American Liberals claim.

By refusing to enter our country by the legal and proper way in which millions of legal immigrants did before them, they show a disdain and disregard of our nations laws, as does the Main Stream Media who refuse to identify them properly as ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, as well as the preening politicians who are so eager to forgive them of their crime.

THESE LAWBREAKERS ARE NOT AMERICANS. …NOT UNTIL THEY ENTER OUR SOVEREIGN NATION IN THE RIGHT WAY, AND SWEAR THEIR ALLEGIANCE AND LOYALTY TO IT.

BEING AN AMERICAN IS NOT A RIGHT. IT IS A PRIVILEGE.

And no hysterical Pajamaboys or hairy under-armed Liberal women, trying to stifle free speech by shouting down Conservative Politicians or average Americans at these Town Hall Meetings are going to change that fact.

Liberals, on both sides of the Political Aisle, have continuously masked their true intentions for the political usefulness, in granting amnesty to illegal aliens, by swathing it in the noble rhetoric of “Civil Rights” and “Social Justice”.

In reality, is the fact that these Professional Politicians could care less about the well-being of illegal aliens. They are simply recruiting new Democrat Voters.

President-elect Trump’s stance on illegal immigration is one of the campaign promises that got him elected.

American’s begrudge no man or woman the opportunity to legally enter our country and contribute to our economy.

It is those who wish to break into our Sovereign Nation and live of off average Americans’ tax-derived “charity” that we have a problem with.

DC and the other contributors to the Comic Book Industry do themselves no favors by taking a Liberal Stance in their publications.

Per CNSNews.com

More Americans identify themselves as conservative than as liberal or moderate, a new Gallup poll says. While the percentage of conservatives has stayed about the same since the early 1990s, the percentage of liberals has increased and the percentage of moderates has fallen.  

The poll found that in 2016, 36 percent of Americans said they are conservative, compared with 25 percent who identified as liberal (up from 17 percent in the 1990s); and 34 percent who identified as moderate (down from 43 percent in the early 1990s).

The poll that the excerpt refers to came out on January 3, 2017.

The fact is poll after poll show that Americans oppose amnesty for illegal aliens.

Is it any wonder that comic book sales as a whole are down this year?

Comics are overpriced and over-politicized.

Whether it is the trend of changing superheroes identities for the sake of “diversity” such as Marvel has done ( An Asian Kid becoming the Hulk?, Thor becoming a girl? Really?)…

Or the trend of championing Liberal causes which the majority of Americans living between the coasts don’t agree with, as evidenced by the results of the 2016 Presidential Election…

Liberal Comic Book Writers, Editors, and Publishers are finding themselves in the same position as their friends over on the Left Coast in Hollywood…

Out-of-touch with their audience.

And, bombing at the “Box Office”.

Until He Comes,

KJ
