In February, Marvel comics apologized for depicting a group of tax protesters in a recent Captain America comic issue as a characterization of the “Tea Party” political group.

Issue 602 of the comic features Captain America investigating a right-wing anti-government militia group called “the Watchdogs”. Hoping to infiltrate the group, Captain America and his African-American sidekick The Falcon observe an anti-tax protest from a rooftop.

Wow, two months later, Fox and other media sources cover the attempt by a group of reactionaries to the Tea Party. What is the plan of these reactionaries? Infiltration.
