Comments for: Archie, Marvel Comics introduce gay characters amid election-year politics

  • Obama must have some real good poll numbers to make this into a single item election.  He continues to use his media to keep this issue front and center, so you can only assume he thinks that he has enough pro SSM votes to bet it all on this issue.

      What does this article have to do with Obama????

      • Mainstream media = liberal = committee to reeelect

      Has nothing to do with Obama. If you’d actually read the article, you’d see that these gay characters have existed in comics for some time — they’re just getting more mainstream attention now.

      • I did read it and that is exactly my point.  The mainstream (also known as liberal) media is going to keep this polarizing issue front and center, as their leader Obama has bet the bank on winning the polarization election.

      Wow, you’re more paranoid than most wingnuts.

      This has nothing to do with Barry O.

      SSM is a political smoke and mirror trick that serves to distract us from the facts that our nation is in a financial mess , is losing jobs to overseas employers by the thousands , is still wrapped up in war in the middle east and has a representative form of government that can’t agree on anything important and seems to only represent those with tons of money. So much for hope and change from another vote seeking , smiling , back room dealing politician. I’m going to vote for ” none of the above”.  As Twisted Sister said ” We’re not gonna take it anymore”! As far as Archie comics are concerned, haven’t seen one in 40 or so years and don’t care to ! Archie is as irrevalant as Barak .

        THANK you “woodchuckranger”. The social indoctrinations are largely smoke and mirrors. Every now and then I encounter someone who isn’t primarily blindsided (blind-sighted) by the mainstream media industry (the corporate mouthpiece). It is refreshing, indeed.

        Include the “banking industry” (second greatest fraud in human-kind) in the equation and maybe some more people can become awakened: learn about “fractional reserve banking”. 

        It’s about “Usury” = Debt-Slavery.

        The financial (so-called) “crisis” is merely part of the plan.

        My Signature Motto:

        Any politician – even down to the “select” man /person level – who will not participate in the education about and pursuit of Monetary Reform – is not worth the paper their election ballot is printed on … because THIS is an issue that underlies nearly everything else in our world (to which so few seem to paying attention – as instructed).

    This is no longer a matter of if, but when marriage equality happens.  These comics are simply rolling with the times, and giving us a glimpse of the equality in our future.
