America has become so lame and so silly that, while Egypt burns and Egyptian Christians are being systematically destroyed; and while 1 million Syrian children have been exiled; and while countless Syrians have been gassed by their own government- none of which has stirred America to action, they are outraged by the choice of Ben Affleck to play the part of Batman…
Controversy erupted across social media networks when Warner Bros. announced Thursday the 41-year-old Affleck will star in the newest version of the Dark Knight, a movie that promises to bring Batman and Superman together. And then this happened: Two petitions started, one on change.org and another in the “We the People” section of the White House website. The change.org petition is aimed at Warner Bros.; the White House petition asked the Obama administration to “denounce the selection of Ben Affleck” and recast the role of Batman. According to CBS DC, the creator of the White House petition, a Westland, Mich., man believes “there are more serious matters that need to be addressed in our country but fans/citizens are outraged at the selection and we want to send a message to Warner Brothers, DC Comics, and Zack Snyder using an outlet that could garner the appropriate media attention to do so.”
I mourn the death of our country. We are a nation of Zombies. Silly, selfish, petty, ridiculous, absurd zombies who deserve whatever fitting punishment God deems it proper to send us.
