Racist Group Boycott “Thor”
Posted by geeksyndicate on December 16, 2010
A racist group has called for its supporters to Boycott the Thor Movie from Marvel Studios. The group claims that the casting of Idris Elba (The Wire, The Losers) in the role of Heimdall.
It’s a movie about a guy that throws a magic hammer at Frost Giants! and your issue with it is that they cast a black guy…..
The Council of Conservative Citizens, labelled as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Centre are the group behind this Boycott, they direct their followers to a site which states:
Marvel is headed by radical left-wingers who insert their ideologies and agendas into their comic books and movies.
In February 2010, the TEA Party movement was viciously attacked in an issue of Captain America. Marvel editor-in-chief Joe Qesada publicly defended the issue.
Marvel creator and front man Stan “Lee” Lieber is a notorious left-winger and financier of left-wing political candidates.
Apparently an artist putting some tea party signs in a comic is now a vicious attack! And Stan Lee hasn’t been marvels front man for years! These guys also claim Marvel has history of publishing extremist “Black Power” comics; I must have missed these comics!
People (and i use the term loosely) like these bigots really get my blood boiling! I hope they don’t go see the movie! i would hate to be sat within 20 miles of anyone that feels that casting a black man in a comic book movie is such a heinous act that it requires some sort of action to protest it!
