There have always been political undertones in comic books. Recently, with leftism seen as the way to enlightenment, the undertones have become overtones. These days, ze comics are merely a spandexed facade for pushing propaganda. Established characters have been trans-morphed into lady-people, American heroes into villains, and DC Comics even turned the Green Lantern into a lover of dudes. Which, I’ll admit, wasn’t much of a stretch. Today an artist was busted for sneaking in references that were a bit too much, even for the rest of gay-ifying, girl-power comic community…
Marvel comics have removed a book from circulation after fans spotted ‘secret, coded anti-Christian and anti-Jewish messages’ in the artwork.
Indonesian artist Ardian Syaf inserted several hidden references to passages of the Koran and Muslim protests against the Christian governor of Jakarta in the X-Men Gold #1 comic.
In one scene in the book, Jewish X-Men character Kitty Pryde is seen talking to a crowd, with the ‘Jew’ part of the word ‘jewelry’ over her head, and the numbers 212 and 51 in the background.
The number 212 is often used as a reference to the Muslim protest against the Christian governor of Jakarta on December 2, 2016, where 200,000 conservative Muslims rallied against Basuki Tjahaja Purnama.
In another panel, Russian mutant Colossus is seen wearing a T-shirt featuring the words ‘QS 5:51’, said to stand for Quran Chapter 5, Verse 51.
Translated, the verse reads: ‘O you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies. They are [in fact] allies of one another. And whoever is an ally to them among you – then indeed, he is [one] of them. Indeed, Allah guides not the wrongdoing people.’
Coming soon to a comic store near you… Ahmed the Beheader of Infidels! But it’s okay, Muhammad explicitly calls for never harming the innocent. As long as “the innocent” are Islamic. Because if you’re not Islamic, you’re an infidel, which means you’re not innocent. Tough break, Peter Parker. Hope that suit holds up, Tony Stark. Cover that head with a hijab, Diana Prince.
Oh, oh, forgot to mention that all of these subliminal pro-Islam messages against Jews and Christians should be excused, as the artist Ardian Syaf has Christian friends. So he doesn’t “really” want the Christians or Jews to go the way of Gwen Stacey. He was just putting in those messages to see how closely readers were paying attention. Like easter eggs. Or like when the SHEILD guys make appearances at the end of the Marvel movies. Only with more ball bearings shooting from a suicide bomber. Wonder what that “hero” costume looked like. If the leotarded costume be colored, let it be blood red.
Leftists started all this, inserting their politics into paneled cartoons meant solely to entertain. It was only a matter of time before Islamic sympathizers followed suit. Why stick to entertaining your readers when you can subtlety threaten them too?
