Why aren’t they interviewing legends like Stan Lee and promoting the virtues of Captain America or Superman? via State Department webchat to focus on superheroes – Robot 6 @ Comic Book Resources.
Superheroes at State
Superheroes will move into the diplomatic spotlight Wednesday morning in a webchat hosted by the U.S. Department of State.
Called Superheroes@State, the live event will feature a discussion about comics and superheroes “as they relate to shared values in countries around the world,” with Comic-Con International’s David Glanzer joining Assistant Secretary of State for Educational and Cultural Affairs Evan Ryan in the CO.NX studio. Dr. Naif Al-Mutawa, creator of the Islamic superhero comic The 99, will participate remotely from Kuwait, while artist Dan Panosian will select his favorite submissions from an earlier contest.
CO.NX is a digital diplomacy team with the State Department’s Bureau of International Information Programs designed to engage audiences worldwide through webchats.

Looking at the ad for the chat, what kind of “superheroes” are being promoted? “Muslim superheroes”. Exclusively. If you’re getting bored by my Constant pushback against the Islamization of our culture and of the medium I Love, then I’m going to bore you to Death because I find this Assault on our culture, on Our Comic Book medium, Absolutely Unacceptable. Maybe if other cartoonists were to take it on as well, I wouldn’t be posting about it as much.
This is a Full On Islamic Assault on our youth -with the help of the American left- in order to normalize Islam to very young, very impressionable comic book readers. It’s insidious, and if you don’t believe it, you will when it becomes even more obvious than it is today. Before 9/11, there were hardly any “Muslim superheroes”. After 9/11? So many I can’t even say. There is No demand in America for “Muslim superheroes”, it’s being Shoved down our throats. Please help me fight back this enemy propaganda, it’s poisoning the one place where good and evil is still being dramatized, week after week. Please spread the word. Share this on Facebook, Twitter, etc.
I recently wrote a piece for PJ Media called -10 Truths Mainstream Comics Evade In Order To Promote “Muslim Superheroes” – that lays out my reasons why, at a time of War, being waged on us by Muslims, “Muslim superheroes” are the Last thing American comic book publishers should be involved with. Please read it and share it. Thank you.http://creepingsharia.wordpress.com/2014/02/21/state-dept-webchat-pimps-muslim-comics/
