Liberal cancel culture is in overdrive since the attack on the Capitol last week by an unhinged mob, and now it appears no one is safe.
Even beloved Marvel characters, in particular the iconic Marvel Comics character ‘The Punisher.’ Who, in spite of being fictional, may now be canceled due to reports of some of the rioters donning his logo.
As The Daily Wire reports:
Marvel’s iconic character “The Punisher” has fallen subject to a cancel campaign after Capitol Hill rioters were seen wearing his famous skull symbol last week.
As Fox News noted, The Punisher has often been a subject of controversy due to the character’s willingness to employ violence, torture, and murder to achieve his ends.
“The character’s symbol has been a topic of debate for years after it was adopted as a symbol of pride among some in the U.S. military and law enforcement, as well as some far-right activists. Many have found it alarming that police, as well as potentially violent right-leaning groups, find kinship with Marvel’s most violent and murderous anti-hero,” reported the outlet.
At the Capitol Hill riots, for instance, the now-infamous paramilitary man carrying zip ties was wearing The Punisher symbol, which prompted a social media campaign to have the character and his symbol retired for good.
The seditionists that invaded the Capitol today wore a Punisher logo. I say @marvel needs to either aggressively enforce their trademark so it isn’t printed everywhere or abandon the Punisher completely. You can’t allow your characters to be used by terrorists. pic.twitter.com/CLHv243N9u
