Madness and Comic Books

I'm not, unfortunately, talking about the psychedelic madness that creates a Joker or a Green Goblin. I'm not even talking about the run of the mill madness that lets a Spiderman or a Batman think that dressing up and running along rooftops is a sensible course of action.

Instead I'm talking about the insane worldview that creates "Liberality." Here's a brief description of this new comic book.
In 2004, Muslim terrorists stopped viewing the weakened American government as a threat; instead they set their sites on their true enemies, vocal American conservatives. On one dark day, in 2006, many conservative voices went forever silent at the hands of terrorist assassins. Those which survived joined forces and formed a powerful covert conservative organization called "The Freedom of Information League", aka F.O.I.L.

The efforts of F.O.I.L. threaten both the liberal extremist power structure and the U.N.'s grip on America, the U.N. calls F.O.I.L. the most dangerous group in the world. It seems the once theorized Vast Right Wing Conspiracy has now become a reality.

The F.O.I.L. Organization is forced underground by the "Coulter Laws" of 2007; these hate speech legislations have made right-wing talk shows, and conservative-slanted media, illegal. Our weakened government has willingly handed the reigns of our once great country to the corrupt United Nations. The Department of Political-Correctness is required to assist U.N. monitors to properly edit all print and broadcast media. Live broadcasts are a thing of the past; all transmissions are monitored by the U.N. and any "offensive" material is dumped.

Rupert Murdoch's decision to defy the "Coulter Laws" hate speech legislations, has bankrupted News Corporation. George Soros has bought all of News Corps assets and changed its name to Liberty International Broadcasting. LIB's networks have flourished and circle the globe with a series of satellites beaming liberal & U.N. propaganda worldwide.

The New York City faction of F.O.I.L. is lead by Sean Hannity, G. Gordon Liddy and Oliver North, each uniquely endowed with special abilities devised by a bio mechanical engineer affectionately nicknamed "Oscar". F.O.I.L. is soon to be joined by a young man named Reagan McGee.

Reagan was born on September 11th, 2001. He is the son of a NYC firefighter whose life was spared by attending his son's birth. Reagan has grown to manhood in an ultra-liberal educational system: being told, not asked, what to think. With personal determination, which alienates him from his contemporaries, he has chosen the path less traveled . . . the path to the Right.
What sort of mentality thinks that that is a plausible future? Not a sane one.

I think it's interesting that the "Coulter" laws are going to be passed by 2007 - middle of President Bush's second term. Guess he's an even lamer duck than I thought. Of course it also begs the question of why such laws were created. I assume, given the general tone of the rest of the piece, that the laws were just passed out of sheer meanspiritedness. I would be more realistic if they were passed in the wake of one of Ann's readers shooting up the New York Times or some other "liberal" institution, but I assume that in these writer's minds, the Conservative movement is completely guiltless.

Anyway the United States is headed by Chelsea Clinton with Vice President Michael Moore who welcome Usama Bin Ladin to the United Nations to make a speech and blow the hell out of New York, which I gather our heroes need to stop. That's liberals for you; basically we are ought to betray America to our bestest buddies, the terrorists. If this is what Conservatives seem to believe about Liberals, I'm frankly surprised there isn't more violence directed towards us.

Anyway you can also look at some preview pages here, if you are so inclined.
