The Avengers vs. Democrats: Swalwell’s Delusion

For those who don’t know, I’m a huge Avengers fan – well really all of the Marvel cinematic and comics universe. I  diligently re-watched every Avengers movie before I saw Endgame, and I was definitely on Team Cap in Civil War. So you can imagine how hard my jaw hit the ground when Democratic presidential hopeful Eric Swalwell Smallballs made a public claim that he and other Democrats were “heroes like the Avengers,” poised to “save America.”

Had I actually eaten something before I read this drivel, I probably would have vomited. Luckily I haven’t had time for a meal yet.

“We are the Avengers,” says Smallballs, while the Republicans are apparently Hunger Games.

Let’s remember that the Capitol administration in the Hunger Games was a tyrannical dictatorship that kept everyone starving and subservient by killing their children every year in a barbaric reality TV game. They certainly didn’t cut taxes or implement criminal justice reform that would free some low-risk prisoners while revamping penalties for some drug offenses. Can you imagine President Snow signing that bill into law?

But hey – don’t let actual facts get in the way of your pandering to science fiction and dystopian literature fans, Smallballs!

Are the Democrats like the Avengers? (I literally choked on my coffee again writing that sentence.) And what exactly are these Bizarro World Avengers saving America from?

Economic prosperity?

The lowest unemployment rate in 50 years?

Border security?

Most of the Democrats are pandering to the “GIVE ME FREE SHIT” crowd by promising to hand over other people’s earnings or force others to bow to the unreasonable and unearned.

Would the Avengers have done this?

The Avengers were the last line of defense against those who would destroy earth and her people – those who would subjugate them, like Loki, and those who would exercise population control through genocide (gee – that doesn’t sound familiar or anything, Population Connection, does it?)

There was an idea, Stark knows this, called the Avengers Initiative. The idea was to bring together a group of remarkable people, see if they could become something more. See if they could work together when we needed them to fight the battles we never could. — Nick Fury

The fact that population control groups fund strictly Democrats and want to steal the earnings of those who have more than two children, with some advocating outright genocide and others, like Margaret Sanger, creating mechanisms by which to implement their twisted eugenics policies, while the Democrats fund these initiatives with money they have appropriated from Americans, doesn’t occur to Smallballs who has about as much knowledge of history as he does about comics.

The Avengers in Endgame reversed Thanos’ sick Malthusian scheme to “save” the universe by randomly killing of 50 percent of those who inhabit it. Today’s Democrats, who think it’s a grand idea to allow the murder of actual babies – not fetuses, as they claim – but actual babies in the womb, are not even close.

Some (including myself) condemn Marvel for recently creating first a Hydra Captain America and then a gun control espousing one, who quotes commie idol John Lennon! WTF? But the other Avengers smacked Cap around about that stupid idea.

As Falcon and Black Widow point out, it’s a little rich for Captain America to call for gun control when he literally used weapons to defeat one of the greatest evils in the history of mankind. In fact, he just used weapons to defeat another organization from attempting to control humanity. I mean this entire story was based on stopping an organization who wanted to disarm humanity in order to control them. It doesn’t make any sense that Captain America would then turn around and be like, “You know these people were right. We should disarm all of humanity.” It’s just absolutely absurd and nonsensical.

And ultimately, in Civil War film, Cap eschews the idea of a government registering and controlling humans with special abilities as weapons, while Tony Stark/Iron Man, ridden with guilt after the unavoidable destruction in Age of Ultron.

This is actually a very human, very real debate that continues between gun control advocates and those of us who want to protect the Second Amendment against government infringement. Most gun grabbers (despite the vocal nutjobs who want to just outright destroy our right to keep and bear arms) are shortsighted do-gooders who want peace, security, and an end to bloodshed. Their way of going about it involves tyranny, but I doubt their emotions allow them to understand that. They’ve never been known for their ability to understand unintended consequences. I don’t think Tony Stark in the movie was motivated by government control and authoritarianism. His guilt about thousands of people being killed overrode his ability to understand that government control of human beings – even ones who are weapons in and of themselves – is a bad thing.

Iron Man’s heart is in the right place, but Cap is correct.

Can superhumans be trusted with their powers? Can Americans be trusted with the right to keep arms?

It’s the same argument that rages today. But as Captain America so astutely said, the right to choose is paramount.

Tony Stark : That’s good! That’s why I’m here. When I realized what my weapons were capable of in the wrong hands, I shut it down. Stopped manufacturing.

Steve Rogers : Tony, you *chose* to do that. If we sign this, we surrender our right to choose. What if this panel sends us somewhere we don’t think we should go? What if there’s somewhere we need to go and they don’t let us? We may not be perfect but the safest hands are still our own.

Compare this with Smallballs’ idea that a government will nuke those who disagree with his tyrannical diktats to surrender our Second Amendment right.

Compare it with Smallballs’ claim that he will disarm Americans, or Kamala Harris’ promise to use her “phone and pen” to bypass the Constitution and implement gun control in the first 100 days of her presidency.

Despite Marvel’s best efforts to pander to the social justice zealots and leftist nutjobs, and the left’s attempts to appropriate the Avengers as their own, the Democrats are not the Avengers. Tony Stark is a capitalist, who makes his own choices for the good of others, rather than have the all-powerful government do it for him at the point of a gun. He gives scholarships to college students. He stops manufacturing weapons of war that wind up in the hands of enemies of his own accord. And that’s ultimately what these superhumans are in the movies – free individuals who make their own decisions.

This is far from what Smallballs and his cabal of angry Democrats are. From Kamala Harris’s promise to bypass Congress to implement her tyrannical agenda to Elizabeth Warren’s and Kirsten Gillibrand’s plans to steal money from the productive and redistribute it to those who haven’t earned it in the form of government-funded “free” shit to Smallballs’ promise to confiscate firearms by force, the Democrats are the exact opposite of the Avengers.

And worse yet, they’re making these promises to gain power – not for any kind of good of the country – making them the natural enemy of the Avengers.

    Swallowwell / Buttplug 2020…. what a perfect ticket for the demonrats.. really shows who they are

  • Mike-in-Keller says:

    Swallwell meant to say, “We are the Revengers, taking revenge against the American public for pushing us out of the White House. Hillary was the anointed one meant to follow the Anointed One. America, you chose poorly, and here we are to take revenge on you.”

  • Wfjag says:

    Just another Democrat comparing him/her/zimself to an imaginary, mythical hero. T-Bone’s boyfriend did the same thing with his Spartacus Moment.

    To reference another movie about fictional heroes and monsters, “Who ya gonna call?”

    It sure as Hell isn’t you.

  • Rick Caird says:

    It is pretty clear, the Democrats are the alien invaders who need to be destroyed.

  • SDN says:

    There’s a superhero book series called “Wearing the Cape”. A couple of years ago, the author put out a role-playing game set there. In the book, he had the first superhero team appear before Congress and define why trying to turn people into criminals because of what they MIGHT do is a bad idea.

    “Gentlemen, my new friend Atlas—the young man sitting beside me who can punch through walls, outfly jets, shrug off hits that would drop an elephant—is a tactical weapon capable of matching an armor division. You cannot stop him from going where he wants to go, or doing what he wants to do when he gets there. And he is only one of the more extreme examples of superhuman power we are seeing every day. And you cannot disarm him.
    “And that last fact, gentlemen, is what makes this moment so dangerous for all of us. You cannot disarm him. You can only try and contain him, at great cost, or kill him, at greater cost. And although most breakthroughs are not like him, or like myself, many of us are exhibiting powers which make us weapons in one way or another, at least as deadly as a gun. Many more of us, like Minuteman and Blackstone here, can go where they want to go and do not have to stay anywhere they don’t want to stay, which makes even passive restraint impossible. We are armed and dangerous and you cannot restrain or disarm us—you can only deal with us.”

    You would really need to read the whole thing, but I can’t find it online that wouldn’t require buying the game.

    I’m going to say that Stark’s problem is that he is also very much an elite. He thinks that he is so much smarter than everyone else and should be able to make choices for them. (Remember the AI stupidity in the one movie?) He agrees with the idea that people should be ruled, rather than governed.

  • Jeff says:

    He thinks he is so much smarter than everyone else, because he is. History is full of smart people who then believe because their smart, they should decide. Problem has always been very smart people often make stupid decisions.

  • Robert arvanitis says:

    The essence of the left is dirigisme, the overwhelming conviction that all others are sheep and you are the only shepherd. That means you can do whatever it takes to lead the flock, for its own good.
    *****************************
    Regarding Avengers, can they be trusted with superpower? Being human they, and we, are all flawed.
    So the answer must be no, EXCEPT that all other custodians would be worse.
    The UN grasps for power because Grand Central Station was wrecked? Has everyone forgotten the “counsel” wanted to nuke the whole island?
    Only a fool, or true dirigiste, commits the fallacy of moral equivalence. We must always choose the lesser evil.

  • […] Really. Because they’re also the party that keeps on worrying about overpopulation and other Malthusian fantasies, and thinks Thanos had a point. […]

  • A. C. says:

    I admit I haven’t seen all the Marvel Avenger hero movies. Only a few, actually. But All the ones I remember ended with entire cities or more left in ruins. Like Venezuela only worse. It could be that’s what he’s hinting he’ll do as President?
