"Look, up in the sky. It's a bird, it's a plane, it's Barack Hussein Obama on the cover of Spider-Man!"
"Two months after September 11th, the Punisher was featured threatening the life of President George W. Bush. The story portrays the President as a slobbering belching incoherent drunk, gleefully itching to launch nuclear missiles. The Punisher breaks into the Oval Office, tosses a nine-millimeter bullet before the President and warns ominously, “I can get in anywhere …Nine millimeters. I’m never further away than that.”
Now, let's play the silly reverse-discrimination game where we imagine the roles reversed... imagine The Punisher, a right-wing vigilante, breaking into the White House and threatening President Obama because he agrees with the Birther contention that Obama isn't a US citizen.
A comic denigrating Barack Obama would not be published, let alone one where a white guy threatens to kill the nation’s first Black president, as he did President Bush in the pages of The Punisher in 2001.
In the new United States, the old adage that Superman fought for has been reversed, changed to, “Truth, Justice and the Obama Way.”
