To his credit, he targets neither the left nor the right, neither liberal nor conservative. Simply the well-intentioned rebels without a clue. Often, when I learn of a march or protest on behalf of some cause, I can’t help but wonder, “Don’t these people have jobs and other obligations to address?” A year or two back, in response to Donald Trump’s claims that global warming was merely “fake science,” a march for science was held in my town. While I agree with the general beliefs of those involved, I failed to see an effective strategy. Afterward, had anyone been converted? Unlikely. Had anyone perhaps become more open-minded? Doubtful. The only result from the march was a large number of hungry, sweaty, tired science supporters.
So when Harley finds herself on the receiving end of a variety of catch phrases and platitudes from idiots with a lame agenda, she’s happy to hand out social injustice in her own over-the-top manner. One might argue her response is excessive, but let’s face it, we’ve all wanted to take a chain saw to someone for a minor infraction, so let’s not start casting stones unfairly.
Not only does this issue feature a special guest villain, but also a guest writer. It helps keep the title fresh after 50+ issues. I’ve been with it since the beginning, and while I sometimes find the character of Harley a bit tiresome, her adventures are always interesting and entertaining.
