Shockwaves were felt all over the internet this morning as Marvel decided to follow in DC’s footsteps and by announcing that the House Of ideas had signed Azir al- Muhammad, noted blogger and avid supporter of al-Qaeda, to write a new Captain America book entitled Captain America: F*ck Yea!. Marvel’s spokesperson, Lucas Siegel, stated that the popular blogger had a built in loyal fan-base that the company would be stupid to ignore based solely on the writer’s political leanings. Stating that:
It is not the position of Marvel to base hiring decisions on whether or not we agree with a creator's views.
Of course my initial reaction was to be angry. I had a whole OP-Ed ready to go but then I remembered how all those namby-pamby Liberals acted when Orson Scott Card was hired to write Superman and I realized that it would be hypocritical of me to care what this guy's politics are as long as he doesn’t put them in the book.It’s only natural for us to initially lash out at what we don’t agree with, but what makes Conservatives different from Liberals (other than the obvious) is that we hold ourselves to the same standards we hold everyone else, and for us to get bent out of shape over an anti-American propagandist writing Captian America would be disingenuous, and that is not what we stand for. Personally, I am sure that even Barry Goldwater would wait in line to see the long rumored Mel Gibson Maccabee film (the story of Hanukkah.)

About the Author - GHERU
RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time. RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage. Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write. RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them. RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor. You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
