Buy The Ticket, Take The Ride

So, next summer sees the release of the movie Thor, based on the Marvel comic.  You'd think everybody would be excited about this.

Not everyone.

A white supremacist bunch of assholes activist group is urging people to boycott the movie Thor because Heimdall, a Norse god, is being played by Idris Elba, a black man.  The Council Of Conservative Citizens posts on their new "boycott Thor" website (sorry, no links from me on that one),  "It [is] well known that Marvel is a company that advocates for leftwing ideologies and causes (And this is news to who, exactly?  -- G).  Marvel frontman Stan 'Lee' Lieber boasts of being a major financier of leftwing political candidates.  (Uh, yeah, it's called political freedom, mouth breather.  Don't like it?  Don't support his causes.  -- G)  Marvel has viciously attacked the Tea Party movement, conservatives and European heritage.  Now they have taken it one further, casting a black man as a Norse deity in their new movie Thor. Marvel has now inserted social engineering into European mythology."

First of all, most of these idiots are Christians.  What do they care about Norse mythology?  Second, HAVE THEY EVEN READ AN ISSUE OF THOR?!?  ASIDE FROM THE NAMES AND THE CITY, IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH NORSE MYTHOLOGY!!!  My background in Norse mythology is pretty light, and even I know this stuff is made up.  What's next, bitching about the angels in Evangelion?  Elba, in fact, has taken a stance similar to my last point.  "Thor has a hammer that flies to him when he clicks his fingers. That's OK, but the colour of my skin is wrong?"

I love it when people make pissing off the deserving so damn convenient.  All you have to do is buy a movie ticket.
