Glenn Beck has a problem with the new Spider-Man, and he thinks Michelle Obama is to blame.
In one of Marvel’s comic series, Peter Parker has been killed off and the mantle of Spider-Man will be taken up by a new character: Miles Morales, who is half-black and half-Hispanic.
On his radio show today, after repeatedly telling listeners that “I don’t care” about the new Spider-Man and that it is just a “stupid comic book”, Beck got his real opinion out. He explained why the new bi-racial Spider-Man can be attributed to Michelle Obama.
“I think a lot of this stuff is being done intentionally. What was it that Mrs. Obama said before the campaign? Because its strange how so much of this seems to all be happening,” he said. Beck then played an audio file of Michelle Obama saying that “we’re gonna have to change our traditions.”
I wonder how Beck will react when he learns that Laurence Fishburne has been cast to play the first African-American Perry White in the next Superman film?
Also, you can’t claim that Spider-Man is a “stupid comic” when you called the ridiculous Spider-Man musical “by far, the best show I’ve ever seen.”
