Alan Moore, the overrated and over-praised person who writes – but does not DRAW – comic books, has had multiple wrong takes on his profession’s affect on the real world. Recently, there was another reminder regarding how hilariously off-base and clueless Moore is.
In this particular case, it involves Alan’s idiotic take not so long ago in which he claimed that comic book superheroes can enhance right-wing tendencies toward violence. As I mentioned at the time, that take was incredibly foolish and very easy to rip apart, especially in the present day.
Look, I repeatedly distance myself from the fanatics of both the left and the right, but let’s see … who in the real world TODAY tends to wear masks in large numbers and then inflict violence on countless numbers of victims? In recent years, that would be the misnamed Antifa, who are really KLAN-tifa. But at any rate, the privileged white people of Antifa embody the concept of masking up and going to look for political foes to beat down.
Over the years, I have often blogged about Klantifa’s ugly activities and I have found it hilarious whenever the comically out of touch Alan Moore or others have tried to pretend that it’s the political right who should be called out on this in the present day, even though Klantifa is forever masked and forever burning, injuring, etc. Atlanta was the most recent city to be reminded of what a violent pack of animals make up that group’s membership.
Nothing Earth-shaking here, merely a passing observation because I just encountered another person quoting Alan Moore’s remark.
