The ludicrous CalExit comic

A publisher called Black Mask Studios has come up with a comic based on the leftist CalExit movement, in an obvious attack on Donald Trump. The promotion for the book says:
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?

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.
They so want to believe Trump is inherently evil. They probably think the same about Reagan today.

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.

Governor Moonbeam was chanting the "not my president" mantra until the Oroville Dam started to crumble. Now he's asking Trump for a handout to fix it. Trump should tell him to go ask Hillary.

California lacks funds to repair its infrastructure, such as dams, roads, and viaducts. That's because the state squandered billions on welfare benefits for illegal immigrants (i.e., undocumented Democrats).

They also blew money on the rapid rail line to nowhere. Or, as Rio Linda would call it, the Chu Chu Muy Rapido.

Californians see themselves as Europeans. They do have some things in common with Europe: decadence (which they think is sophistication), and out-of-control immigration, with the aliens (who have no intention of assimilating) segregating themselves into enclaves.

But the state is really more like a third world country: a vanishing working/middle class, an ever-expanding underclass (totally dependent on the government dole), only one viable political party, and a few enclaves on or near the coast, where the idle rich people live in gated communities.

It also resembles America's antebellum South. Those states had no middle class; the plantation owners were rich (and idle), and everyone else (whether slave or free) was desperately poor. The rich slave owners thought that they could secede, and that cotton would support their economy as an independent nation. They also opposed new infrastructure projects, such as major roads and canals. Naturally, a lot of slaves escaped (or tried to escape) to free states, and a lot of poor white Southerners fled to the West or the North, where they could find jobs.

Today, California is run by the coastal elite, limousine liberals. They believe that they could sustain themselves as an independent nation, with Silicon Valley and Hollywood supporting their economy. They have opposed pipelines and other infrastructure projects. (And they are almost totally dependent on other states for water and electricity.) Their tax base is evaporating, as the workers/tax payers are fleeing to other states.

The South seceded when Lincoln was elected, because the rich plantation owners feared that the abolition of slavery would put an end to cheap labor. Now, rich Californians want to secede, because they are afraid that Trump's immigration reform will put an end to their supply of cheap labor. The plantation owners didn't want to pick their own cotton, and they didn't want to pay free men a decent living wage to do it. Now, Meryl Streep and George Clooney don't want to mop their own floors or mow their own lawns, and they don't want to pay US citizens (whether natives or legal immigrants) a decent wage to do it.

The more things change, the more they stay the same.
