Our 'ol pal Ron Marz just never can seem to grasp what's known as "irony":
I would also like to point out that comics as a whole needs to do a much better job of policing our own when they behave abominably.— Ron Marz (@ronmarz) November 21, 2014
So much to say to that ... but it's just way too easy.
Next, "brave" Marz goes after a dead guy:
Not lost on me: hardcore @NRA dude Charlton Heston is the one who destroys the world.— Ron Marz (@ronmarz) November 22, 2014
Yeah, not lost on me: How the saving of a "progressive" pacifist prior to World War II ended up allowing the Nazis to win the conflict -- and eventually rule the planet ... and galaxy.
Except that ... actress Joan Collins, who played pacifist Edith Keeler, is actually right-leaning in her politics.
Sort of the reverse situation of Chuck Heston's Taylor in Planet of the Apes, who was a pretty liberal guy:
"Time bends. Space is...boundless. It squashes a man's ego. I feel lonely. That's about it. Tell me, though, does man, that marvel of the universe, that glorious paradox who sent me to the stars, still make war against his brother...keep his neighbor's children starving?"
"I'm a seeker, too. But my dreams aren't like yours. I can't help thinking that somewhere in the universe there has to be something better than man. Has to be."
"Imagine me needing someone. Back on Earth I never did. Oh, there were women. Lots of women. Lots of love-making but no love. You see, that was the kind of world we'd made. So I left, because there was no one to hold me there."
So, essentially, what we have is Ron Marz making not much sense as usual -- only trying to score more "progressive" cred, and further alienate any right-leaning audience he may have left.Posted by Hube at November 23, 2014 04:19 PM | TrackBack
