So, today, Marvel published issues of comics revealing that in fact the Nazis were always supposed to win World War 2, and the Allies invented the Cosmic Cube to rewrite history to prevent that from happening. Steve Rogers, the Steve Rogers that Jack Kirby and Joe Simon invented to punch Hitler and fight Nazis back before the US was even IN World War 2, that Steve Rogers is a fake, not the REAL Steve Rogers, not the original or the genuine article - he was always originally a HYDRA agent, always supposed to be a Nazi.
That was released today. April 19th.
April 19th is the anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, the largest Jewish revolt during World War 2, the first urban uprising in Nazi-occupied Europe, begun when the Nazis decided to completely wipe out the Warsaw Jews on Passover eve. Instead, the Jews held out for nearly a month, with whatever they could fight with. They inspired Jews across Europe, including those already in the camps, to organize and revolt. They’re honored to this day.
And Marvel published their Nazi-stanning dumpster fire of a retcon today.
Okay, I wasn’t sure I was going to post about this, but WHOOPS YES I AM.
The addition to this post is very detailed, very good, and FIRE NICK SPENCER.
What the fuck are you serious! This shit is happening on purpose and Nick Spencer knows it is. There’s no way that he’s doing this shit to be “edgy” or it’s coincidence, he has a Nazi fetish or is one and he’s using the marvel universe to get off on it.
I mean he took two of the world’s most well known comic characters that had their histories tied explicitly into WW2 (a soldier who fought in WW2 for the Allies and punched Hitler. And a Jewish concentration camp survivor of the Holocaust) and turned them into Nazis. Then on top of that he has it now where everything in the mainstream Marvel universe from WW2 and beyond is supposed to have never happened.
He’s doing this shit on purpose and no matter what marvel does to retcon or stop this shit storm racist fans will blame Jewish people and SJWs saying “they made comics interesting and good but have into PC Culture.”
I saw a post circulating earlier that marvel’s marketing goons were trying to get comic shop employees to dress like hydra agents or w/e to promote all of this too. all of this, in the context of the historical anniversaries happening at this moment, and what is happening in the present day. at what point do we recognize this for what it is and stop thinking it’s simply about being provocative?
this is incredibly disturbing and people need to speak out on it. we need to write marvel & disney, organize, send a strong message as fans that this is unacceptable especially given what we are seeing irl with the rise of violent antisemitism and fascist sentiments. jewish fans/of color should not be standing alone on this either. we can’t let popular superheroes become propaganda tools for hate.
I hate this so so so much???
remember the literal dark ages when screens weren’t backlit and you needed this fucking thing to see what you were doing
I had this same light for my Gameboy Color.
My older brother and i had to sit on the top of the stairs in our house because the light there was the only one bright enough to see the game at night 😂
Oakland Tribune, California, June 10, 1951
Ten to one, you know Hollywood’s Marilyn Monroe as Miss Atomic Bomb, or as Miss Cheesecake. Or as “The Shape,” or even Miss Flame Thrower, because she’s been that too.
You’d recognize her anywhere because she has one of the most-photographed figured in the curve-conscious film word. She has personality appeal, too - the kid that kept men movie-goers glued to their seats to see “The Asphalt Jungle” a second time. And Marilyn had only a bit part in it!
But: there’s another Marilyn! Behind the cheesecake, the girl with the smile and the figure is a scholar and a student. Here’s proof:
- She’s enrolled for a literature course at the University of California at Los Angeles.
- She has only two charge accounts - both at book store. “You’ll usually find her in the poetry department,” said a clerk recently.
- She writes verse herself. “My poems are kind of sad,” she says, “but then so is life.”
- She likes to talk about such cultural big-wigs as writers Thomas Wolfe and Walt Whitman, musicians Mozart, Beethoven. But she’s also strong for jazzmen Louis Armstrong and Jelly Roll Morton.
She’s Still Atomic
That’s Marilyn the scholar, who’s really a bright girl searching (as so many people are) for some meaning to life. Has it made her highbrow? Stuffy?
“Not a bit,” says Marilyn. “If the boys like me and want my pin-ups, I’m ever so happy. The cheesecake and sexy pictures are parts I enjoy - as long as I can do them honestly.”
And the future? “Acting - real acting,” she says. “Not just posing. There are things inside of me that I don’t know how to say except through acting.”
So ,I’m a music teacher and every year we have what are called “walk through observations”. Basically, this means that 4 times a year the principal or vice principal comes into my class to assess my teaching. Fine. Sure. No problem.
Well, today I was doing an activity with my 1st graders called “Musical Groceries”. Basically, they make up a fake shopping list and then together we figure out what the rhythm of the words on the list is. To do that, a small group of students plays the beat on the conga drum while the rest of the students move around the room while chanting the word. It sounds weird but it’s a great way for the kids to figure out the relationship between syllables and rhythm.
They quickly get bored of walking the rhythm so I let them come up with their own ways of moving around the room.( skipping, hopping, etc) One student suggested they hop around the room like frogs, way down low to the ground. Okay fine.
Or it was fine until my vice principal walked in to do my observation only to find 20 seven year olds hopping around the room like a hoard of little hob-goblins, rhythmically chanting “BREAD! BREAD! BREAD!” while five other kids played ominous beats in a drum circle.
I have never seen anyone look so confused in my life and I really don’t want to know the rating I got on my observation.
"Tell the chef, the beer is on me."
"Basically the price of a night on the town!"
"I'd love to help kickstart continued development! And 0 EUR/month really does make fiscal sense too... maybe I'll even get a shirt?" (there will be limited edition shirts for two and other goodies for each supporter as soon as we sold the 200)
