The ludicrous CalExit comic
What if a fascist, autocratic President took over the United States? And what if that President lost California, the sixth largest economy on Earth, by nearly 2-to-1…a margin of almost 3 1/2 million votes?They so want to believe Trump is inherently evil. They probably think the same about Reagan today.
What if the day after that President took power, the largest mass demonstration in history occurred, and the state with the largest turnout was California. And then, the following week, two of the largest international airports in the world, California’s LAX and SFO, were blockaded by protesters? What if California refused to be ruled?
[...] In CALEXIT, the citizens of California will struggle to seize power back from an autocratic government. The ongoing series tells the story of Jamil, a 25-year old courier (aka smuggler), and Zora, a 27-year old leader in the Pacific Coast Sister Cities Resistance, who escape together from a prison camp in Occupied Los Angeles, where martial law has been in place for the past year — ever since America’s demagogue President signed an executive order to deport all immigrants, and California responded by proclaiming itself a Sanctuary State.
Each issue of CALEXIT will also include non-fiction material about local sustainability and grassroots campaigning for 2018 elections.
Truth Revolt also notes:
As you peruse the cover, you may notice something strange. No, not the two black blocs kissing, but the fact that the rest of them are holding rifles. Surely those were issued after going through multiple background checks. Progressives believe no one but the police should have guns. So, it seems a bit hypocritical that they’re as well armed as the military force they face. Okay, right, it’s fiction.Except they probably can't tell the difference between reality and fiction. What it suggests is they only see keeping guns around appropriate if it serves the side of their choice, and their ideology. It's totally stupefying.
One of the publishers boasted that this is the return of progressive/political comics, ignoring how Marvel/DC and several other publishers have already flooded the market with plenty in the past decade. Yet no wishes are made that actual fantasy adventure make a comeback without the overt politics stuffing up the market.
