Someone call Donald Trump because we’ve got some FAKE NEWS for him and it’s from his Best Friends Forever. In world where we have a government investigation going on, I’m glad to see Fox News has their priorities in check. Lock the door, lower the blinds, and fire up that smoke machine because it’s going to get real up in this bitch.
Fox News was having a panel discussion on the show “Your World with Neil Cavuto” and the topic came up of some claiming that the new DC movie “Wonder Woman,” which is killing it btw, isn’t American enough. Neil and the panelist pretty much pulled apart the entire movie by saying how Wonder Woman is played by Israeli Gal Gadot, her costume is red, blue, and gold instead of red,white, and blue as portrayed in the classic “Wonder Woman” TV show that starred Lynda Carter in the late 1970s. Dion Baia even said that:
“I think, nowadays, sadly, money trumps patriotism. Especially, recently, I personally feel like we’re not really very patriotic, the country, in a certain sense. They want these movies to succeed internationally, so they’re going to dial back.”
Sigh. They even go on to say that DC and Warner Bros are dialing back Captain America in order to appeal for international audiences. Thanks for that spoiler for the next Captain America movie, Fox News. This whole entire conversation is why people shouldn’t talk about things they know shit about. You don’t see me making comments about global warming or mechanical engineering. So Fox News, it’s time for me to take you to school. While I respect your choice to make yourselves look like totally and complete bunch of dumbasses #FreeSpeech, let me break it down for you.
First off, Wonder Woman isn’t from America. She’s an Amazonian princess. Even if you saw a commercial for the film, you would have know that. It’s rather pointless to have Wonder Woman be patriotic for America when she didn’t live/was born in America. It’s like being patriotic for India when you weren’t born there nor currently live there. Besides, she is fucking helping America in the World War I. Hell, she is the reason why we won. Did you forget that part or did you just remove it because it didn’t support you claim? I’m going with the both because it’s very obvious that none of you did your research.
Second, Complaining about her costume is stupid. While I’m not a feminist, I’m going to play this card because frankly, I don’t think you would have brought up her costume if she was a male superhero. Whether Wonder Woman is wearing red,white, or blue or three other colors, it isn’t important. It’s about the story and the characters. Superheroes go through a lot of costume changes. The costume you are thinking off is one of the costumes that Wonder Woman has replaced with a new version. It make sense for them to not go use that costume because it’s not up to date. Also, Lynda Carter’s version of “Wonder Woman” isn’t even the same Wonder Woman that is portrayed in everything else. To hint towards that makes your points irrelevant.
Third, it’s fucking comic book/movie character. Get over it. No one is going to the movies and thinking “hmm, I’m not going to see ‘Wonder Woman’ because she’s not patriotic.” If they are, then they need to reevaluate their lives. People are going to see the movie because they are a fan of DC Comics and the character. No one was really saying that Wonder Woman isn’t patriotic, that was just your attempt to continue to turn your fan base against Hollywood and have them drink up the “Hollywood is anti-American” bullshit that you serving up in order to keep Donald Trump happy. Just admit it and don’t trying to push it as a hot topic that is keeping people that isn’t your own staff up at night. It would be better accepted if you said “We think that Wonder Woman isn’t patriotic” and then stated why. While it still probably would have been crap, it’s not “FAKE NEWS.” And don’t try to hide the fact that the majority of you are hardcore Trump supporters. It’s fine if you are, just don’t show it so much when you are reporting your alternative facts and whatnot.
Again, I respect Fox News’ right to be able to make comments like the ones they did. Just research it and actually come up with points that aren’t so thin that you can see right through them. You are a new source. Do the research. It’s not hard once you get your heads out of your asses. Also, there’s other important things to cover than Wonder Woman’s patriotism. Remove your lips from Donald Trump’s ass and actually cover the news.
