Superman renounces his U.S. citizenship … that’s bad news?

Karl D. writes:

In the latest Superman comic book it seems the man of steel renounces his American citizenship to become a global superhero. Is nothing sacred anymore? Truth, justice and the UN way!


LA writes:

Look at the dark lighting, the morally ambiguous, troubled atmosphere. It looks exactly like your average prime time cop and lawyers drama of the last 15 or 20 years. How could the Superman of the mid twentieth century possibly survive in any recognizable form in today’s culture?

In any case, Superman has long since become a “dark,” left-wing figure, so his giving up his American citizenship is no loss to us, but a wonderful gain. Who wants this morally superior, alienated creep among us? We should not see this as a slap in the face to America, but as a paradigm of how America can be saved. If the entire liberal elite followed his example, it would solve the greatest problem facing the country, which is the threat to its freedom and its very existence posed by liberalism. Conservatives would no longer have to think about how to defeat liberalism (which, in the final analysis, could only happen through civil war and the suppression of the most vociferous liberals), or, alternatively and more peacefully but no more plausibly, about seceding from liberal America and creating a conservative America. The liberals would have done the seceding, leaving America in our possession.

Hey, were you talking about Superman or Obama?

LA replies:

It’s same thing, right?

But it’s not just those two. It’s the liberal culture in general.

Paul, the author of Stuff Black People Don’t Like, writes:

I’ve written a long article arguing that Superman renouncing his citizenship doesn’t mean much, since America has become a proposition nation. If Superman as portrayed by Christopher Reeve renounced his citizenship, then it would matter.

We were still a country in 1977.

I should state that I wasn’t born until the mid-1980s.
