Are you doing ok in your personal life? Did you get enough sleep? Is your blood sugar at an ok level? Usually your posts are good but this one just seemed unhinged and feverish.

Basically you're saying someone who doesn't like Marvel replacing their classic characters with new characters to appear more diverse is a Nazi sympathizer. I don't like that stuff either. But I also hate Republicans, conservatives, evangelicals, Nazis, the Confederate flag, Confederate statues, Trump and his staff. And I've never wanted to run someone over for being a protester.

Well, Cap's not a Nazi, he's a fascist. It's a difference worth pointing out because in the real world, the GOP is definitely trying to lead the country into fascism, and Right wing media has been encouraging fascist tendencies for decades. In the real world, you can get the GOP to denounce Nazism and racism (after several days of hemming, hawing, and hiding) but the fascism remains, and the President still aspires to authoritarianism.

So HydraCap still is a relevant comment on Right Wing culture in America, and still a reflection of what the right wing propaganda machine via FOX and the radio talkers call for openly. Many, many people voted for Trump. Why don't those people like reading a story where HydraCap basically takes those fantasies all the way?
