The Last SuperheroNews Item
Whatever happened to the American Dream? It came true. You’re looking at it. Greg Johnson and John Morgan join Richard Spencer to discuss the universe of Watchmen and what it reveals about modern America, the contractions of liberals, and the implicit “fascist” mentality that underlies Superhero myths.

Euthanizing the Homeless? It’s a Start
The one thing about “Watchmen” that I think most people overlook is what the antagonist achieved and what the jews so desperately desire. That is the creation of a literal universal foe who ends tribal and racial strife and unites the human race in one great cause of survival. The jews desperately desire such a foe which consolidates the races and makes their work easier of hiding in the background and manipulating the masses. They were not able to achieve this effect with the creation of christianity and Satan. This theme is what I call “the collective threat” which runs throughout much of their propaganda. When “The War of The Worlds” was aired over the radio and produced mass hysteria and panic in the masses the jews picked up on it immediately. The collective threat is used in most sci-fi and horror movies, some examples are: The Terminator, Aliens, Independance Day and all zombie movies.
I read Watchmen first when I was fifteen years old, and countless times ever since. Only many years later I realized how much it had subconsciously influenced my views towards the Right. So did some of Frank Miller’s work (especially Dark Knight Returns) as well as Dave Sim’s Cerebus.
When I first saw the movie, I thought it was just another attempt of the Americans to convince themselves that they won the Vietnam war. I guess I was wrong.
Just listened to the podcast and wanted to give my input as a younger reader. Besides alien invasion, another way of uniting “all-mankind” is the environment and ecology. One cartoon that was popular when I was a child was “Captain Planet’ which was developed and produced by Ted Turner, whom older WN’s would recognize as being one of the last Gentile media moguls. Captain Planet was the titular super-hero who was called upon by a multiracial international group of teenagers known as the “Planeteers” whom together fought against polluters, poachers, nuclear-power enthusiasts, etc.
Oddly enough, in the episode, “A Good Bomb is Hard to Find”, the villain “Dr. Blight”, goes back in time and tries to sell nuclear weapons technology to a dictator who is strongly implied to be Adolf Hitler (although the producers hide it with different facial hair). When Captain Planet confronts this dictator he remarks that “Prejudice and Hate are as toxic as any other pollutant”.
The episode is available on youtube, go to the 15:48 mark to watch this scene. Warning! The show is a bit corny!
A more contemporary example is from the video game series “Halo”, a first-person-shooter for the Microsoft XBox, which was very popular when I was a teenager. Young White teenage men are obviously attracted to “fascist” ascetics but in this case, the hero “Master Chief”, who is faceless but has an obviously white American accent, fights for the “United Nations Space Command” which is a multiracial sexually-integrated military force fighting against the extraterrestrial Covenant, a group of theocratic aliens who organize along a caste system and are on a religious crusade to exterminate humanity, whom they consider an affront to their gods.
Here is a video clip that illustrates the two sides perfectly. For the context in the story, in “Halo 2”, the Covenant decide to invade Earth and launch their invasion at “New Mombasa” (anyone notice the liberal fetish-fantasy of sub-Saharan Africa becoming advanced technological societies?).
Anyway the parts to watch are from 0:00-2:20 and from 7:50-8:30
In the first part you will see the UNSC and their multiracial army which, of course, has a jive-talking aggressive negro sergeant as commander. In the second part, you will see the Covenant commander prepping his soldiers for their invasion of Earth. Notice that he makes reference to defending “the blood of our fathers and the blood of our sons”. In a way, the extraterrestrial villainous Covenant, sort of represent New Right ideas, whereas the heroes, the UNSC, essentially represents the New World Order.
