Apparently you never read these comic books when they came out in the 1970s of know nothing about Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and the origins of the current series "The Defenders."
Luke Cage and Iron Fist were the first black and white superhero characters to team up in a comic book together (Iron First will eventually cause a rift in their relationship by filling in love with Luke's girlfriend, or so the comic book goes).
Luke Cage gave almost the exact speech (called a "monologue" in comic book speech) before the two got together. Danny has always been the privileged rich "white boy," as Luke called him, and Danny has always tried to distance himself from his privilege by fulfilling his role as the Iron Fist. They would become "The NEW Avengers" but Marvel decided to choose "The Defenders" this time around to avoid confusion.
The two characters eventually teamed up in their first marvel comics in 1972, which was historical because it featured bi-racial participation. The only other prominent comic book at the time that did this was "Josie and the Pussycats" that featured one of the first main characters of African descent ever in a American children's comic book (also in the Saturday animated version).
So the "crazy rant" is not a "liberal speech," but a sign of it if ignorance on your part...and a peculiar odd lean to the "right" by a group who don't realize that atheists are not (unfortunately and unfairly, for the most part) welcome by most anyone else on the "right" side that values belief in God, the Bible, prefers Protestantism (but will accept some Catholics).
I have been reading this site during my recovery. Good gravy! What's all this rubbish about the left versus the right, especially you anti-religious. Don't you know that outside the safety of your Internet bubble world you live in, outside in the real word, the right hates atheists. Liberals accept you, and you are hating them from this site?
No wonder you are too ignorant to know the origins of something as silly as a comic. Sure, what I just wrote here is (in the grand scheme of things) insignificant, but sheesh! You jumped from your lack of education on the subject to blaming liberals!
This site is filled with some of the same empty-headed thinking that filled Watchtower land. You blame the world for your lack of knowledge, and crown your misinterpretation of things as truth. It's just about a stupid TV show, but you've taken a tiny thing and made a vehicle for hating a group of people...all because you were too lazy, ignorant of even just stupid to know something idiotic about a comic book series from 1972.
This ex-JWs site is messed up with some messed up people (who will probably go on a hate-filled, rage against my words because that what Jehovah's Witnesses...excuse me, some people who can't move on with their lives do).
