HBO’s Watchmen is a superhero series based on Alan Moore’s comic book of the same name, but instead of directly adapting the comic like Snyder’s film, it functions as a sequel set in modern day. Luckily, the Watchmen film is relatively faithful toward its source material compare to other Snyder adaptation, since like all chuds he believes Rorschach is a right-wing hero so he didn’t have to butcher it. The only big difference is the fabricated threat: an alien invasion in the comics and Dr. Manhattan in the film.
In the series, police wears mask so they can work alongside the vigilantes to take down the white supremacist terrorist group the Seventh Kalvary, whom like the incel fanboys in real life, ate up so much of Rorschach’s shit they believe that being a smelling, lonely piece of humanoid trash that no one else wants is because they’re besieged by queers, people of color, and immigrants, and totally not because they’re simply talentless and worthless waste of space that can’t be bothered to do anything despite their privilege.
So obviously, the fragile broflakes who like to say the left are composed of hypersensitive crybabies because we voice dissents every time a trans woman is raped or a black man is murdered by police, completely lost their collective shit since a major media outlet just used the adaptation of one of the most famous comic book in American history to call out them for what they’re: sniveling babies who are so stupid and cowardly they can only be shitting themselves while clutching the pant leg of every Fascist dictator they could see.
Case in point, witness the following screenshot from our totally apolitical site TV Tripes:
The Seventh Seventh Kalvary member gave his verbal consent for the black police officer to search his vehicle, and then ambushed the poor man while he was talking to dispatch in the police car, exactly like the little chickenshit that every white supremacist and incel fanboys are. Regardless of your personal opinion about police, ambushing them after agreeing to cooperate is a low blow, but since the cops is black and the killer is white, the incel fanboys on TV Tripes wonder if in this case killing a cop is totally justified and okay.
They believe that there’s question about whether white supremacists are undeniably bad guy, because the heroes are just as bad of worse. I mean, of course; one of them is a black women and the other is a dirty commie, after all. Even if they did the exact same thing Rorschach did, they’re definitely worse because they’re not a cishet white Conservative incel and they’re killing the poor oppressed white supremacist terrorists instead of the queers, the immigrants, and the people of colors that the incel chuds oh hated so much.
Oh, and saying racism is undeniably bad and we should do anything in our power to stop them is anvilicious because only some people consider this very important. Others, such as the chud fanboys who run and use TV Tripes, couldn’t care less; in fact, they probably think racism is a very good thing indeed! The double standard here is mind-boggling; if the heroes are all cishet white Conservative men and all the villains are Black Panthers or Muslim Fundamentalists, they probably wouldn’t even think to talk about it at all.
They also think that it’s a tearjerker that Rorschach’s journal ended up becoming a terrorist manifesto, since while he’s a flawed human being, he isn’t so bad. You heard it, they believe that a queerphobic misogynist who believes he alone knows right and wrong and thus have the moral license to do whatever the hell he wants to whoever the fuck he wants without judge or trial isn’t so bad, and his journal about how you should never compromised on your bigotry in the face of Armageddon shouldn’t become a white supremacist manifesto.
For people who complain all the time about respecting the author’s intention when it’s advocating for bigotry, they don’t seem to care at all about the author’s intention when Moore intended Rorschach to be a negative example: “I wanted to kind of make this like, ‘Yeah, this is what Batman would be in the real world.’ But I had forgotten that actually to a lot of comic fans that smelling, not having a girlfriend—these are actually kind of heroic [traits]. So actually, sort of, Rorschach became the most popular character in Watchmen. I meant him to be a bad example, but I have people come up to me in the street saying, ‘I am Rorschach! That is my story!’ And I’ll be thinking, ‘Yeah, great, can you just keep away from me and never come anywhere near me again for as long as I live?'”
The only thing unrealistic about this series is the idea that the police would fight white supremacists instead of helping them, like we’ve seen time and time again in real life.
