1. In case you were wondering, the racist criticisms of the upcoming Thor movie continue apace. (Thanks to Slog tippers Jim and Debbie for this one.)

2. If you are nerdy, you already know that in the comic book Batman Inc., Batman is traveling around the world, recruiting vigilantes in different nations to become Batman-branded vigilantes. Conservative blogs are in an uproar over the most recent recruit in France, an Algerian Muslim.

You see, DC Comics has decided that the “French savior,” the French Batman is to be a Muslim immigrant. The character’s name is Bilal Asselah and he is an Algerian Sunni Muslim and an immigrant that is physically fit and adept at gymnastic sport Parkour. Apparently Batman couldn’t find any actual Frenchman to be the “French savior.”

The whole situation is a misreading of what ails France. The truth is, neither communist Union members nor “Neo-Nazi” Parties are causing riots in France. Muslims are. Yet DC Comics is absurdly making a Muslim immigrant the “French savior”? This is PCism at its worst. Not only that but it is pretty condescending to France, too. France is a proud nation. Yet DC Comics has made a foreigner the “French savior.” This will not sit well with many Frenchmen, for sure. Nor should it.

The readers are outraged! Outraged, I say!

Thought batman was supposed to save the innocent? Not blow them up.

Batman a dhimmi??? WTF??? NO WAY... Batman is an American, and a product of our Judeo-Christian heritage, which is apparent because he is not a vigilante. If he was a Muslim, he would have just blown himself up with the Joker. Crazy Crap happening. If a company wants to deal with our enemies (and yes children, Islam is the enemy as clearly as Nazis, Communist, or any MFers that want to kill us), than strike the company where it counts. In the wallet.

To bad. I guess I've seen my last Batman movie. Stupid multiculturalists

I quit collecting comics when Marvel made The Rawhide Kid a fudge packer. I can't believe DC has gone the Marvel route and became a bunch of pansies.

I've got you all beat. I stopped collecting comics in the early 70s. It was already getting lefty with the Green Lantern Green Arrow team up.

My lovable nerdy brother, once an avid collector and reader - no longer buys Commie Books. Another American institution soiled by Orwellian PC zealots.
