Politically Incorrect Theater – Part 4

2011/11/11

I’m not sure which of the following is the most facepalm-worthy: the horrible Japanese stereotype’s inability to differentiate between the consonants “l” and “r”, the captions and editor’s comments mocking the horrible Japanese stereotype’s inability to differentiate between the consonants “l” and “r”, or Barry Allen‘s joke about underage marriage/pedophilia.

I don't even know where to begin describing how utterly wrong this is.

This landmark in Silver Age offensiveness has been brought to you by The Flash #180 (June 1968) by Frank Robbins, Ross Andru, and Mike Esposito.

Politically Incorrect Theater – Part 3

2011/10/24

Remember what happened the last time the Joker visited the United Nations as the representative of a Middle Eastern country in the 1980s? Yeah, I’m pretty sure that DC Comics wishes they could forget all about that. I mean, they’d never try getting away with something that offensive again by making him the ambassador of the DC Universe’s Middle Eastern terrorist state of Qurac, right?

Right?

Well, they could just be petty and give him a huge parking ticket.

Oy gevalt.

This even worse example of Islamophobic propaganda has been brought to you by Birds of Prey #16 (April 2000) by Chuck Dixon and Butch Guice.
