Conservative actor Dean Cain, who starred as the titular character in “Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman” beside Teri Hatcher in the nineties, isn’t happy about Marvel’s new woke Captain America comic book.
Marvel is currently receiving a lot of flack for politicizing “The United States of Captain America,” which claims that the American dream is the American lie.
In the first issue, the comic reads: “The first American dream is the one that isn’t real. It’s one some people expect to just be handed to them… When the truth is, it never really existed in the first place… other cultures. Immigrants… We’re at our best when we keep no one out. A good dream is shared. Shared radically. Shared with everyone. When something isn’t shared, it can become the American lie.”
Cain said he’s extremely fatigued by the “wokeness and anti-Americanism” currently saturating the media.
“We just celebrated our 245th birthday. In my opinion, America is the greatest country in history. It’s not perfect,” he commented. “We are constantly striving for a more perfect union, but I believe she’s the most fair, equitable country anyone’s ever seen, and that’s why people are clamouring to get here from all over the globe.”
He doesn’t believe in the comic’s message that the American dream is a lie.
“I believe in individual freedom, I believe in equality of opportunity – not outcome, competition – the ability to compete fairly, hard work, which brings you material wealth, which in turn gives you self-reliance,” he went on. “That’s what everybody wants on the face of this planet, that’s what everybody strives for, that’s why they are trying to come here.”
Cain thinks that wokeness has spread into every facet of American life, and it is influencing the next generation to disparage the country.
“The cool thing to do today is to bash America. The comic books do it, the schools, they indoctrinate our kids, they do that, our movies, our television shows are full of it, celebrities, athletes, actors, the media – they love to bash America,” he concluded. “And I find this wokeness – it’s pervasive. It goes through everything, it’s in our school system.”
