Take a look at what’s streaming on all of the major apps. What’s available is not what was available last year, let alone two weeks ago. The angry mob of Americans are ruining everything. First, books are burned. Now, they’re looking at our TV shows and movies.
Paw Patrol is canceled. Cops is canceled. But, why? They showed that there were good cops in the world, taking care of a problem. One was a cartoon dog. However, there’s the thought that these shows glorify the police.
You know what’s next, right? Batman.
Batman can’t possibly be allowed in today’s political atmosphere.
First of all, Bruce Wayne is a rich white man dressed up in a black suit. He’s earned himself the nickname Dark Knight. It’s only a matter of time before someone calls him out for blackface…and let’s not even get started on the cultural appropriation of that nickname.
Here’s the bigger problem for why they’re going to come after Batman.
Those Gotham City police officers are as corrupt as they come. They’re so busy lining their pockets with cash that they’ll let any villain or super-villain take over the city.
Gotham City has been corrupted for decades, and no one has bothered to clean up the city. They’ve got the mob mentality, so the only one who was able to do anything was a superhero.
This is not what Black Lives Matter or anyone else determined to change the way the U.S. operates wants us to see. They don’t want us to see how corrupt cops can be changed. They don’t want us to see how a masked crusader (or perhaps, a good politician) can turn things around.
It’s too close to home right now. Batman is going to be next on the list… and if they take down Batman, where does it end? Are they going to come for Captain America? Wonder Woman? Superman? There’s a reason for all of those characters to go if you put enough of a demented spin on it. Who knows, Wonder Woman may have even defaced a flag to create those short shorts she wears…
The world has stopped using sanity and understanding of common issues. As soon as they decided that a puppy named Chase who served as a police officer was a threat to their cause, they lost all credibility. What kinds of monsters would protest to shut down a kid’s show? The same kinds of monsters that would come for Batman.
Why is it that we can’t ask people to apply common sense to things? Older shows and movies are being removed from streaming because of having “racist tropes to them.” Why can’t we ask people to simply remember that these shows and movies were from a different time? People know that segregation didn’t end until 1964. So, why do classics have to be removed? Does Black Lives Matter and the rest of the groups think that we have to remove history instead of simply learning from it?
Sure, Gotham City is corrupt. Perhaps it mirrors some of the cities here in the United States. However, it doesn’t mean that we cancel anything. We have to teach that there’s a difference between fiction and nonfiction. Escapism is important, especially during these dark times. Kids want to watch Paw Patrol to remember that there is good in the world. Adults want to watch Batman to remember that a superhero can always come in and save the day.
Fiction provides hope. It paints the picture that there is still good in the world. We need that right now. When there are fights in the street, historical monuments being maimed, and even ‘Gone with the Wind’ being taken off of streaming, where does that leave us?
Someone, anyone, throw up the bat signal. At this point, the only thing that may be able to save us is Batman. Don’t let the leftist progressives take him away, too.
