Laughs, OK, Starnes does not think, "Hey Superman is preventing a gentleman with a gun from killing human beings".

But no, he draws the conclusion "Superman is being used by the creators to push an agenda whereby he protects illegals".

What bearing does the fact that the gentleman is American, and the people shot at are illegals, have to do with the overall analysis (and correct conclusion) that shooting people is bad? You can insert "American" and "Illegal" with any other words, but they really don't have any relevancy to the ultimate conclusion.

And as far as indoctrinating our kids, he again fails to make the right conclusion that killing anyone is bad. As if we are instilling the right message in kids, if Superman let the gent kill the people, hey they're just illegals, right?

Considering he's an illegal alien himself, I understand Clark's position.

Whenever Starnes comes up I usually give an opinionated rant about what a nincompoop and ass-hat he is, this time I'm going to pass.

The funny thing is that the Starnes pointed that out himself, and yet it didn't stop him. That's some seriously willful stupidity there.

Best comment (yeah I know, the foolishness of reading Fox News comments)

Quote:
Now they can change the picture from Superman to Donald Trump since he has agreed to protect illegal immigrants.
Where's your story on that one Todd?.

Let me get this straight.

Faced with

A) A person attempting to murder a group of people with a machine gun. Not threatening - actually pulling the trigger.

and

B) A group of illegal aliens who is being shot at.

the bright spark that wrote this article is seriously suggesting that Superman should overlook A to handle the criminality of B (because he's actually an ICE agent, right?).

You just can't wash the stupid off that no matter how hard you scrub.

Superman still uses the old definition of the "American Way", not the one being pushed by the Alt-Right.

With Todd, it's just too easy. Agree.

Let's give him credit, though, for cutting through the nonsense about North Korea, 2 major hurricanes, and the slow economic recovery to expose the evilness of comic books. You da man, Todd.
