Marvel comics angers tea baggers.

Let me start of with a laugh......hahahahahahahahahahahahaha! Okay, now that thats out of my system let me explain.

I work part time (might as well be considered full time) at a local coffee shop here in Lima, Ohio. On the side of the shop we have a conference room that we rent out to groups in the community. We have one group in particular that really gets on my last nerve, The Allen County Patriots.

The Allen County Patriots are an extremely Right-wing group that meets in here on thursday nights. The only thing I like about them is when one member tells them to, they tip really well. There are a few people in the group who seen to be really great people, but most of them are what I would label as nuts. I have had a few different private conversations with a bunch of them and I find them at best to be very homophobic, racist, one sided, religiously blind, ignorant and more that I will not say in order to keep this PG. Remember gay Pepsi coke guy? (from a post a few months ago) ya, thats the constant foolish thinking I deal with in this group.

Now don't get me wrong, I am not a liberal, nor am I conservative. I find that both sides take their thinking to extremes and are too one sided for me.

There is not one person of the considerable "minority" in their group. It is very understandable considering their racist point of view. I wanted to announce to the group one day that if they want and feel more comfortable; "we will allow them to wear their bed sheets and pillow cases as long as they don't set anything on fire". As the manager, this would most likely just get me fired, especially since 2 of the 4 owners are part of this group.

Marvel Comics' Captain America has always been fighting for the American way of life against all who would threaten to destroy it (No Bush is not the same person). In a new comic released by Marvel Captain America is trying to investigate along with his African-American sidekick the Falcon a right-wing anti-government group called "the watchdogs". He sends Falcon to watch them from the rooftops at a tea-party protest. He realizes that trying to be with the group an infiltrate them will not work with a "black man from Harlem fitting in with a bunch of angry white folks".

This comic has sparked much controversy with multiple tea-party groups for the depiction of their organizations. Thought not completely true of all of them, so far from what I have seen it is not too far off from the truth. United States of America? I think not, the states are but the people are not. Why did is stir up such controversy and anger? Maybe it is questionable because its not too far off from the truth.

I found the article on Yahoo!

P.S. the group announced once that they should start working in conjunction with the Allen County Tea-Baggers. I thought they said the wrong thing. I just recently learned what a tea-bagger really was in that situation. Being from a younger generation with video games to tea-bag is a completely different action. lol. I would like to tea-bag the tea-baggers. ROFL!!!
