A Relic Of A Better Time Moves On: Rest In Peace, Batman

It’s with great sorrow that I announce the death of Adam West today – he apparently passed on into the great beyond after a brief fight against a swift form of leukemia.

Despite the long years that have gone by since West brought the Batman character into the limelight as a humorous escape from reality, White men still remember the good old days, which were a time when Jewish domination of the media was still not entirely complete, and degeneracy was still frowned upon and censored.

60’s Batman, know that you will never be forgotten, and know that we on the Alt-Right will do all we can to encourage younger generations to enjoy your lighthearted and playful work.

I myself will do so with my baby son once he gets older, as so much on television has become inundated with filth (even some Christian-themed programs are now corrupted with multicultural and multisexual rot).

From Fox News:

Adam West — an actor defined and also constrained by his role in the 1960s series “Batman” — died Friday night in Los Angeles. He was 88. A rep said that he died after a short battle with leukemia.

“Our dad always saw himself as The Bright Knight, and aspired to make a positive impact on his fans’ lives. He was and always will be our hero,” his family said in a statement.

With its “Wham! Pow!” onscreen exclamations, flamboyant villains and cheeky tone, “Batman” became a surprise hit with its premiere on ABC in 1966, a virtual symbol of ’60s kitsch. Yet West’s portrayal of the superhero and his alter ego, Bruce Wayne, ultimately made it hard for him to get other roles, and while he continued to work throughout his career, options remained limited because of his association with the character.

Asked by Variety what the character of Batman has come to mean to him over five decades, West said: “Money. Some years ago I made an agreement with Batman. There was a time when Batman really kept me from getting some pretty good roles, and I was asked to do what I figured were important features. However, Batman was there, and very few people would take a chance on me walking on to the screen. And they’d be taking people away from the story. So I decided that since so many people love Batman, I might as well love it too. Why not? So I began to reengage myself with Batman. And I saw the comedy. I saw the love people had for it, and I just embraced it.”

Please note that Batman and Robin were not homosexuals – this was a hoax conceived in the minds of certain Jews who eternally have their minds in the gutter, and seek to warp all that is normal and decent into blackened husks as part of their genetic drive to destroy.

  1. Funny how he had trouble getting further roles, given that in Batman, his face was partially hidden.
    Ironically, some degenerate pop stars can get roles playing a ‘ normal ‘ character.

  2. Gee–as the only person, I’d bet, who has been published in both the “Occidental Dissent” comment section and “Letters to the Batcave,” I’m feeling I have some bragging rights here. To be sure of the date, I’d have to dig out that old comic book, with my letter in it, but I’d guess it was from early 1963, a few months past my ninth birthday. That’s two-and-a-half to three years before the start of the TV show.

  3. I remember watching the first episode of BATMAN in early 1966. Always loved the opening theme by Nelson Riddle & his orchestra which became a TOP 40 AM radio hit the same year. Still have it in my vast collection of 45 rpm records going back to the mid ’60s. Adam West was smart in identifying himself with Batman to avoid being typecast as several actors like George Reeves (Superman) for example

  4. I prefer to ignore all those dark, edgy Batman movies and regard Adam West’s portrayal as the “real” Batman. West also will be fondly remembered for his portrayal as the Mayor of Quahog, RI on Family Guy.

  5. Batman and Robin 60s TV show was a little too gay for my taste. Too many guys and boys in tights. The “Riddler” was particularly gay – the relationship between Batman and Robin was uncomfortable.

  6. Grew up watching Batman in the early 70s. Loved it. As I look back now, I enjoy it just as much but for additional reasons, I can’t recall ever seeing evil portrayed in a good light or and on screen diversity.
    RIP Sir.

  7. Adam West was 37 when he began the show on Jan 12 1966 and 39 when it ended on March 14 1968. As he was young and svelte then, I had a difficult time believing he was 88, I figured he was at most 80-81. When I was a kid, the Batmobile from the show would go around doing appearances throughout the nation. Adam West was only in his late fifties then younger than my mother is now. Adam West being 88 makes me realize exactly how old I am. I can remember when he was still young.
