It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s Todd Starnes attacking Superman for protecting “illegals” from being shot

The right wing grievance over a perceived liberal bias in Hollywood, which previously led to right-wing media personalities attacking Wonder Woman, The Lego Movie, Frozen, Tinker Bell, and the Mario Brothers, has now turned toward the latest issue of Action Comics. In his article for FoxNews.com, Fox host Todd Starnes attacked Superman for protecting undocumented immigrants in the comic, saying, “The Man of Steel has now become a propaganda tool for the defenders of illegal aliens.”
In the latest issue of the series that’s published by DC Comics, Superman stood in front a group of people as an aggrieved man shot at them with his machine gun. In his article, Starnes suggested that Superman should be “rounding up the illegals and flying them back,” and speculated that “it’s only a matter of time before DC Comics unleashes other superheroes in its corporate quest to defend the alien invaders.” He also suggested that such storylines amount to ”indoctrinating our kids.” From the September 13 post:
The Man of Steel has now become a propaganda tool for the defenders of illegal aliens.
In the most recent issue of Action Comics, Superman comes to the rescue of a group of illegal aliens -- under attack from a white guy wearing an American flag bandana and waving around a machine gun.
Instead of rounding up the illegals and flying them back to where they came from, the Man of Steel snatches the white guy and with a menacing look snarls, "The only person responsible for the blackness smothering your soul -- is you."
Remember when Superman stood for truth, justice and the American way? Then again, Clark Kent is technically an illegal alien – a native of Krypton.
