And here’s something else you can do: Vote with your feet not to see the new, politically correct “Superman Returns.” Not just because Brandon Routh plays the Man of Steel as a smarmy metrosexual, and Lois Lane (Kate Bosworth) is a slut who doesn’t know whether the father of her child is Superman or someone else.
“[In the latest film incarnation, scribes Michael Dougherty and Dan Harris sought to downplay Superman’s long-standing patriot act. With one brief line uttered by actor Frank Langella, the caped superhero’s mission transformed from ‘truth, justice and the American way’ to ‘truth, justice and all that stuff.’
“‘The world has changed. The world is a different place,’ Pennsylvania native Harris says. ‘The truth is he’s an alien. He was sent from another planet. He has landed on the planet Earth, and he is here for everybody. He’s an international superhero.’
The New York Post’s Page Six adds this:
“Mike Dougherty and Dan Harris wanted to avoid outdated jingoism. Dan: ‘I don’t think ‘the American way’ means what it meant in 1945.’ Mike: ‘He’s not just for Metropolis and not just for America.’ Dan: ‘He’s an alien, from Krypton; he has come to Earth to be kind of a savior for this world, not our country . . . And he has no papers.’ Mike: ‘What would happen with the immigration laws we have now?’ Dan: ‘I’d like to see someone kick him out!'”
Yes, “Superman Returns” is actually about how we ought to quit enforcing our democratically enacted immigration statutes and protecting our borders. As Daily Pundit writes:
“Hollywood knows exactly what the ‘American Way’ is–it is the way the America of the Founders is expressed in what is usually called ‘The American Dream.’ The only problem is, they hate it. This change in Superman isn’t ignorance. It’s malevolence. And it’s important.”
