Superman is a Jooish creation. A story about an alien saviour accepted by the ingroup. Early propaganda and a necessary precursor to mass immigration.— RAW MILK NATIONALIST. (@JohnSmi87303626) October 11, 2021

Comic book characters like Superman and Dr. Seuss books aren’t worth defending as cherished American traditions. Both represent an earlier and more subtle stage of cultural subversion and American imperialism. The same could be said of veneration of Martin Luther King, Jr. and liberal antiracism.
This story also says something though about our times. We have a progressive “creator class.” This cultural elite also has a modernist sensibility. It values shocking the bourgeois, tearing down traditions, cultural liberation and social equality above all else. It is predisposed to latching onto fads and trends. It is hostile toward the past which it sees as immoral. It even cannibalizes itself and tears down its own icons. Colorblindness, for example, has been revealed as an insidious form of systematic racism.
What are the consequences of having this kind of deeply alienated cultural elite? You might predict that these cultural termites would rip apart the social fabric and polarize the country into warring cultural camps. They would weaken and destroy the unity of the nation and undermine the legitimacy of the ruling class. By recklessly tearing down and deconstructing everything, there would no longer be any cultural glue or basis of solidarity – except perhaps mutual hatred – that holds the country together.
