Joss Whedon Warns of Zomney Apocalypse

As Election Day fast approaches, we’re being inundated with political ads.  But who can you trust?  Who will give us the straight truth on where our country might be headed based on who is elected President?  Joss Whedon.  Whedon knows what will happen if Mitt Romney is elected to run this country, and if you want a full-on zombie apocalypse, Mitt is your guy.  But as Whedon reminds us, we have to be prepared for dissolved social programs, curtailed social freedoms like gay marriage and women’s right to choose, and poor people taking on even more of a financial burden while the avarice of a wealthy few goes unchecked.  This will inevitably lead to a zombie apocalypse, and while we don’t know if we’re getting fast or slow zombies, one thing is for certain: we’ll need to stock up on canned goods and learn parkour.

Hit the jump for Whedon’s very important message, and remember to vote on November 6th (preferably for the candidate who won’t bring on the zombie apocalypse).

      With prose like that, you deserve Obama.

        shutup jew, don’t you have dredle to spin or some menorah to light up you damn big nosed, big eared curly haired penny pincher?

      • twocentstoomuch

        I’m going to assume goingtosuicideChris is being sarcastic; because I have a hard time believing anybody could be that stupid.

        That being said I don’t agree with Whedon, but I would still vote for him if he was on the ticket.
        His platform could be “I’ll bring back Firefly.”

      • tired of uneducated racist liberals

        “superfraud”- another dumbass racist liberal jew hating marvel fanboy- never ceases to
        amaze me how much hate and lack of decency liberals spew out if u disagree with anything they say, think, do, imagine etc…

        btw- nolan’s tdkr is fucking leagues above whedon’s avengers and nolan’s vision is a
        great visual for where this country is headed if obama remains in office. look at his record- it says it all. and yes republicans are no angels either but they are the lessor of 2 evils this time around.

        before anyone says shit about bush- remember the last 2 yrs of bush’s term 2006-2008 the democrats controlled both the house and senate= frannie mae and freddie mac collapse- for those who don’t know this was the housing collapse, aig bailout, gm, chrysler etc… they were also in control of both house and senate for obamas 1st 2 yrs= 16 trillion in debt.

        if u wanna sit at the adult tables then know what your’e talking about.

  • Steve

    If you twerps haven’t realized that America is changing for the worse then you need to wake up. There are millions of people that now think it’s the responsibility of the government to give them what they don’t have. Bottom line is, the poor that can’t help their selves will always have assistance, but the people that are poor because of their life choices should not be getting assistance their whole life. There are people out there that raise their children on the notion that when they hit 18 they can go out and get their food stamps and assistance too. The job of our president is to guarantee equal opportunity for everyone, not equal outcomes for everyone. Get out there and work 2 jobs if you have to. Stop voting for the person that will give you someone else’s money and vote for the person that actually supports business and doesn’t say “If you have a business, you didn’t build that”. We’ve never had a president before that was this anti-business.

    • Mark

      I totally agree. The US deficit is going down, unemployment is decreasing, people are getting healthcare so they don’t have to go into bankruptcy to live and burden their families with debt, the country is getting toough on china and internationally the country is no longer a joke involved in multiple wars that make crooked rich people get rich while young men and women die or are maimed in the name of the almighty dollar.

      This is completely the wrong direction for the country.

      Idiot.

      • E. Lee Zimmerman

        LOL! Welcome to Unreality!

      • Griz

        @ E. Lee Zimmerman: There are at least a dozen people posting in support of Joss, and yet you feel the need to post both with your facebook account & comment section (compulsively) to tell us how dumb or stupid we are. . . .first of all, they’re opinions, which by definition can’t be right or wrong as they’re subjective . . second if all, you want to mingle with like minded people, go watch Fox News, go attend a tea party, better yet join the fluckin army and go fight for your country. . . any use of your time which is not spent trolling would be greatly appreciated. The level of stupidity you show at not understanding something as simple as “what percent of your take home income do you pay in taxes to the govt” and buying into “I already paid significantly higher taxes at the corporate level!” shows just how convoluted your mind has become. Is that why he on purposely delayed releasing this year’s return, refuses to even budge on years before 2011, and felt the need to claim less charitable contributions than he actually gave to stay true to his “never gave below 13%” whopper from earlier in the year? Cause if he really paid 35+13 = 48% of his income in taxes, that might be something he wouldn’t want to hide. The fact that you and so many others believe that the “wealthy by inheritance” lot only earn money so they can hire people, borders on delusional . . . .like saying rock stars bed women to get a better understanding of the female psyche so they can be better husbands to their wives at home. Get a clue: Romney has spent every moment of his life using the American business & tax system making money for himself without actually having to design or produce a damn thing of any value, while rock stars bed women for all the depraved, crazy sex they can’t get at home . . . . There is no further motive cause one is not necessary, except by people trying to explain how they are not as evil as they appear to be. However, if you choose to wholeheartedly believe that it is America that’s taking advantage of hard working visionaries like Romney & Trump, then i welcome your opinion, and wholeheartedly choose to ignore it.

      • sferrin

        Keep drinking the Kool-Aid Mark. The deficit is going *down*? On what planet? Barry added over $5 TRILLION on his watch alone. People are getting healthcare “so they don’t have to go into bankruptcy to live and burden their familes with debt”? Please tell me you’re not one of those imbecils who think Obamacare is “free”. It’s being laid on the back of the working class. So how is it that my insurance and taxes going UP so I can help pay for a bunch of parasites a good thing? Pardon my French but *you’re* the f–king idiot sparky.

    • tomincmh

      Blah blah blah. Those evil poor people draining our resources. How dare anyone expect that the richest and supposedly most compassionate country in the world should provide some sort of safety net for it’s citizens? I’m sure the wealthy, especially in the financial sector, have earned every bit of their money and have not been a drain on this country’s treasury and economy these past few years. Oh wait a minute, the mostly unregulated financial sector that basically received a blank check for 700 billion dollars and over a trillion dollars the federal reserve pumped in to help protect this country’s economy from being thrown into depression because of their screw ups? Yea, let’s reward those “job creators” some more by cutting their taxes lower than even George W. Bush saw fit and throw out the rules this President put into place to prevent another “too big to fail” financial crisis.

      The simple fact is that, no matter whether you’re poor or exceedingly wealthy, people count on the government to protect them in variating degrees. When it’s given to poor people, it’s called socialism. When it comes to the wealthy, it’s called promoting economic growth, even if the money given isn’t spent on investing in this country. It comes to a simple matter of priorities. For example, should every citizen have at least some basic form of health insurance or should the inherited millionaires and billionaires of this country not have to pay any tax on the estate their deceased relative/friend gave to them?

      Finally, for such a supposedly anti-business President Obama has been, it is worth pointing out that corporate profits have grown 77% (or 6.8% if you factor out the financial collapse, which is still 3 times better than Reagan) since he came to office and the Dow Jones Industrial Average has risen 5,000 points or 60% in that time. The entitled class just doesn’t want the President to make them pay any more in taxes. It has very little to do with the economy.

      • E. Lee Zimmerman

        I see you’ve fully embraced lunacy. FYI: corporate profits have grown b/c corporations are not spending on anything — little things like investments and hiring. When they don’t spend in these areas, the economy contracts as it’s done consistently for about the last four years.

      • NotwelcomeintheGoP

        “corporate profits have grown b/c corporations are not spending on anything” um.. the amount of profit has nothing to do with the amount of spending. Profit is the measure of money gained during the course of business. You describe savings.

    • Gabriel

      Steve, it’s obvious you don’t do much research on the tag lines and buzz phrases used in elections. If you did you’d know that Obama never said what you’re claiming he did about building businesses. You’d know that he was talking about the roads that allow people to get to your business and the phone/power lines that keep your business working and connected to the world.

      It’s such a blatant misunderstanding, you must be a troll trying to put misrepresent the quote so you can collect your paycheck from the Zomney campaign. We’ll see how much you like the government’s services if you ever loose your job or health care.

      • Steve

        Please tell me if you build a business from ground up how you didn’t do it on your own. By Obama’s beliefs, is there anything that someone can take credit for doing on their own? Anything? If a bum shits on your porch did he not do it on his own because whatever he ate was possibly prepared by other people? To say that about successful business owners is offensive! Yes there are a lot of smart people out there like Obama said but he said it in a way that brings the Bill Gates of our country down to just anyones level. That is wrong. I am not as smart as the billionaires and I accept that. I don’t need a president that will take my back because I havent created anything and I say I’m just as good as the successful people. I accept the choices I’ve made and where I am in life and this president is trying to take credit away from the highly successful and distribute it to the people that haven’t done shit.

      • E. Lee Zimmerman

        No, Gabe, you’re living in a dream world denying the obvious, choosing to align your mind with political talking points. Obama has consistently said off-prompter that he believes in “spreading the wealth around,” which is the core of re-distributionism. Obama precisely said that “if you built a small business, you didn’t build that.” Anyone with half-a-brain knew exactly what he meant.

    • Anonymous

      If he is so anti business the why are most businesses showing record profits?

  • Mars

    LMFAO. Whedon is hilarious, it’s no surprise the Avengers was so funny. The canned goods part was the best. Watch all the conservatives get angry. Romney can go ride his dancing horse or play with his car elevator. Keep that fucker away from national security decisions.

    • Steve

      Mars, I think it’s so funny that you liberals’ only ammo against Romney is the jealousy of his financial status. Are you jealous of the Kerry family who inherited their money? I doubt it. And secondly I can’t believe you would even mention national security decisions with the Benghazi cover up that is currently going on. Obama says he doesn’t know what happened and there are now emails that prove the white house knew about the attack while it was happening. Get it together. You guys are the cancer that is infecting America.

      • Chris

        I think the anger coming from the Republican Party (bitches of the Tea Party) is the “cancer that is infecting America.”

        Liberals aren’t jealous of Romney’s money. They want him to give it up. He should be paying 90% tax rates, not 15%. Nobody deserves to be a billionaire, least of all some Mormon d-bag born into wealth who made even more money from bankrupting businesses.

        I hope Romney wins the popular vote but Obama wins the electroal college. Divine justice for Bush’s presidency and maybe it’ll pull you conservatives out from the pressure of the Tea Party.

      • Griz

        @Steve: If the rest of the country paid 13% income taxes . . . we’d be much better off. The problem is, we don’t. Romney on the other hand, due to the wealth that he is willing to spend on tax lawyers, only pays 13%. . . .The rest that he should pay to the govt either gets refunded or deducted . . .that’s a govt handout. Now i realize that the few hundred $$$ that poor people get every week grinds your gears, but to the rest of us: A billionaire who’s legitimate taxes could single-handedly keep a school from shutting down or an ER with all the staff it needs is SIGNIFICANTLY a better deal than however much money we could save by letting the poor starve to death. You think the poor and the destitute get too much money from the govt? Talk to me when you’re poor and destitute. . . . .FYI: Benghazi is the new Fast & Furious . . .only people who still care are those watching Fox news (aka people who weren’t going to vote for Obama even if terrorism was over, Palestine & Israel made lasting peace and the national debt was $0)

      • Steve

        @GRIZ. that 13% number you throw around is capital gains tax. He does pay higher taxes. He pays higher tax on income just like all the millionaires do. Thats what you whining people don’t get!!!!! He pays 13% capital gains tax on investment income and also pays a 35% rate on his income taxes!!!!!!!!!!! When will you idiots understand that they already pay more than we do!!! that 13% is only one of their taxes!!!!!!!!! Gosh you people are retarded!!!!

      • E. Lee Zimmerman

        @Chris and all: Romney is paying exactly the tax rate he’s supposed to be paying on capital gains. FYI: he’s already PAID the full tax rate on the money when he earned it originally. Obama seeks to punish Romney and quite a few households by jacking up tax rates on capital gains. You let that happen, and then you’ll see what your retirement plans are worth in about six months, assuming you’re smart enough to save money in the first place.

    • Steve

      I’d love to see how you can defend a record like Obama’s. He is a flailing failure and the only reason you or anyone else would vote for such a failure is because he offers up a piece of others’ earned success. I don’t have much, I have an 18 year old car and a nice cell phone. But do you think I want a piece of what the millionaires and billionaires have earned? No. I want to earn my own money. I don’t think there should ever be a moment in a persons life where they say “Okay I need to stop making so much money, I’ve made enough”. I also think that billionaires already pay enough taxes. When you take their money, you are taking money that could be invested in giving me a job or someone else that needs money. I’ve never gotten a good job from a poor person. Have you?

      • Mark

        The rich give people jobs? Except that you have companies like Sensata making record profits and they’re still shipping the job overseas because they want to pay their workers pennies not dollars. They don’t give two craps about you, you and your job exist as long as they cannot automate it or find someone to do it cheaper, however much money they are making they are only interested in making more.

        And again, unemployment is going down.

        Guess the rich don’t need to be obscenely rich to get a job.

        I sure hope you turn down all those benefits you are entitled to when you retire, no medicare for instance. Since you’re such a self reliant gal and all.

      • TheHOYT

        Are you talking about taxing the rich people or taxing companies? If it’s companies, how will gouging successful companies with taxes incentivize them to keep jobs in the USA? If it’s people, are you talking about upping the income tax, or the capital gains tax? If it’s the income tax, this is really only going to effect the upper-middle class, or SMBs, and this will end-up wounding the middle-class. If it’s the capital gains tax, then you are de-incentivizing the wealthy from investing, thus killing more private sector jobs. This socio-economic war that Obama has perpetuated is ridiculous, and completely un-American.

        And, when you say that unemployment is going down, you are being entirely disingenuous. You’re not seeing the forest for the trees. A minimal bump after FOUR YEARS is not success, it is not progress, it is failure. This is one of the slowest economic recoveries in history, and it is because of the uncertainty and lack of results generated by Obama’s failed policies.

        Oh, and we won’t have to worry about turning down SS and Medicare, because they’ll be bankrupt by the time my generation retires, if we continue down the path we’re on, that is.

      • Weeks

        They’re shipping jobs overseas because this country has the highest corporate tax rate in the world.

    I love Joss Whedon’s work, but his political commentary is wanting. Hollywood has a skewed view on the world, they don’t understand the true plight of the everyday (hopefully) working American. However, Mr. Whedon’s entitled to his opinion and free speech. I just hope that Americans on the ground-level can see through the lies that he’s putting forth about Mitt Romney. Romney is a true leader. He’s had to work to gain success through working well with others, even those that don’t agree with him. He’s done it as a successful business man at Bain Capital, helping to make small businesses successful. He did it at the 2002 Winter Olympics. And, he did it as Governor of Massachusetts, while working heavily with Democrats. While Pres. Obama has been coddled as the Democrat poster-boy since he started his political career, he has never had to work with people of differing views until half-way through his second term as President, and never held a true leadership position until he was elected. Republicans in the House and Senate don’t want to work with him because he doesn’t understand how a true leader operates, he doesn’t understand the word compromise. The USA is in a bad way, hemorrhaging money and jobs, we need true leadership in Washington if this country ever going to get back on-track.

    • Chris

      “Republicans in the House and Senate don’t want to work with him because he doesn’t understand how a true leader operates, he doesn’t understand the word compromise.” You couldn’t be more right. Obama doesn’t compromise like the Republican Party. He doesn’t cave into Tea Party extremism like them. Believe it or not, however, most of us liberals don’t think Obama is liberal enough. He has pandered to the Republicans in Congress to get anything passed, but they filibuster everything. No jobs? Well he had a jobs plan. Better healthcare? Romney will take care of that, don’t worry.

      Fuck it. I’m moving to Sweden.

        @Chris: Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.

    • Mark

      The democrats in Romney’s senate vetoed him over 300 times and Mr Job Creator was FORTY EIGHTH in job creation.

      He balanced the budget for the Winter Olympics WITH GOVERNMENT FUNDS.

      Republicans in the house and senate have refused to compromise unless the rich stay rich, yet you accuse the President of being the one unwilling to compromise.

      The USA is GAINING JOBS and REDUCING THE DEFICIT.

      I see how Romney is managing to stay in the race with people this ill informed and uneducated about the situation outside of Fox News.

      • TheHOYT

        “The democrats in Romney’s senate vetoed him over 300 times and Mr Job Creator was FORTY EIGHTH in job creation.”

        And yet, he was still successful governor in many respects, and managed to increase revenues and lower unemployment to 4.7%. Obama’s managed to keep the USA unemployment at around 8% for roughly four years, and that’s using the messaged numbers that don’t count those who’ve stopped looking for work.

        “He balanced the budget for the Winter Olympics WITH GOVERNMENT FUNDS.”

        Government has a roll to play, and Romney understands that. Surely, you’re not begrudging the use of government funds in a one-off situation? Reguardless, Romney’s leadership sill managed to right-the-ship at the Olympics.

        “Republicans in the house and senate have refused to compromise unless the rich stay rich, yet you accuse the President of being the one unwilling to compromise.”

        Republicans are willing to compromise. However, Obama and the Democrats what their way or the highway, and there willing demonize the rich and de-incentivize success to do it. Not to mention that this distracts from the fact that, as the national debt balloons, the tax burden will eventually shift to all tax brackets and to all Americans. All of the entitlement programs that the Democrats hold so dear will eventually have to be payed for. Sure, you can continue to tax the rich, but eventually that well will run dry, as you chase them all out of this country, including their money which fuels the private sector.

        “The USA is GAINING JOBS and REDUCING THE DEFICIT.”

        I guess, if you focus on the micro level, but as you expand your view to include the macro, you see that the national debt is around $16B, and has doubled since Obama came into office, and that the job numbers are dismal by any recovery standards. It took Obama almost four years to see a minimal bump in the job numbers.

  • james

    If you actually think the deficit is being REDUCED, then I’m not sure what to say to convince you otherwise. WIth trillion dollar deficits every year, where is the reduction? Unemployment JUST NOW dipped below 8%, after almost four years, and all of the sudden everything’s peachy now? The economy is growing more slowly now than it has over the past two years. How is that a recovery? Jobless claims remain high, but unemployment numbers dropped. Doesn’t that seem strange to you, to herald this new unemployment number as if it’s a good thing? All it means is that less people are actually looking for work. Instead, they just gave up altogether. It kills me when liberals accuse conservatives about being blind and narrow minded, when liberals are the ones who are currently skewing the facts in their favor. If you like what is happening in Greece and Spain, where the government overdrew from the bank account of the wealthy to give it all away, then Obama is your man. And to the commenter above who said the wealthy should be paying 90% of their income as taxes, words cannot describe your disturbing ignorance. I’m sure you’re devising a utopia where no one works, and everyone is handed everything they could ever want. Good luck with that (They tried a variation of that multiple times, and it hasn’t worked. It was called “socialism”).

    It doesn’t matter who wins on the 6th, one half of the country will feel like we’re on the right path, and the other will get all pissy in their pants and say the side that won will ruin the country. I’ve been politically aware for over 20 years now, and this is all that comes from every election season. Sure there are good and bad policies passed and shot down, but people have been bitching about the course of the country since it was founded. NO one man or woman will unite everyone towards the common good. That will happen when the Vulcans make first contact after we make the first faster than light space flight. So really we should be supporting the space industry and stop wasting time with SuperPACs. Live long and prosper.

    Oh and by the way – how many millions do you have stashed in bank accounts? How much did you pay in taxes last year?
    Stick with movies and TV I really don’t want to hate on you.

    Yes, Whedon is clearly making a political statement here, there’s no doubt of that. But he’s also trying to do it in a funny, entertaining way. And in this nothing-but-mudslinging political season, this is exactly what is needed. If only we’d seen it months ago.

    And to anyone here, and out there, who said they’ll never watch Buffy, Firefly, Dr. Horrible, Avengers, etc. again becuase of this… you’re an idiot.

    George Carlin for President. I don’t care if he’s dead we can make a hologram. Hear the truth.

    Wow, I can’t believe how thin of skin people are. One persons opinion just destroys them. I love how snarky and arrogant everyone gets, like they KNOW the exact solution to fix our country. The thing is, it’s a complicated problem with no simple black and white answers. No body is right, but plenty of people are wrong.

    It’s heartwarming to see Whedon and the Avengers come down on the side of good when The Dark Knight Rises acted as a Republican screed that villainized the poor and lionized job creators as our messiahs. It was a truly evil film.

    I’m glad Whedon is using his right to free speech. I’m also glad he’s using his God-given sense of wit.

    To say that you’ll never watch Avengers or Firefly again because you don’t share the same political lean as Whedon is absolutely preposterous.

    For me, a person from Iceland, this entire thread is just hilarious. Over here I think Romney’s only following would be amongst fundamentalist cults and xenophobic hate groups of socially-retarded middle aged men and their brainwashed sons. Everyone on this thread is arguing subtleties in economic policy, when one of the nominees is a fanatical bigot! Even if Obama were adamant about blowing the entire federal budget on a trans-atlantic tunnel, he would still be the lesser of two evils…

      Hear, hear !
      Sadly whoever wins my friend, there will be 100 % more hobos and illiterates, useless men, here in the stat,es than in the entire Island of Cuba, which btw has no shootouts at schools or multiplexes,it’s remarkable the difference between our cruel society with our guns, prostitution, abundant ignorance and sadist rich fat basterds, when compared to supposedly bad places the majority of our citizens don’t have sufficient info about.

      ;) Btw my girlfriend works for the un and she’s from Hafnarfjörður, cheers !

    “But as Whedon reminds us, we have to be prepared for dissolved social programs, curtailed social freedoms like gay marriage and women’s right to choose, and poor people taking on even more of a financial burden while the avarice of a wealthy few goes unchecked.”

    It is not up to wealthy people and the government to take care of the poor it is their own. Typical Hollywood babble, why don’t all the stars give up more and more of their money to help them out if they are so concerned. NOT ALL (there are plenty of people out there who do deserve the extra help), but really there are too many people sitting on their asses and taking advantage of it.

    Keep drinking the Kool-Aid Mark. The deficit is going *down*? On what planet? Barry added over $5 TRILLION on his watch alone. People are getting healthcare \"so they don\’t have to go into bankruptcy to live and burden their familes with debt\"? Please tell me you\’re not one of those imbecils who think Obamacare is \"free\". It\’s being laid on the back of the working class. So how is it that my insurance and taxes going UP so I can help pay for a bunch of parasites a good thing? Pardon my French but *you\’re* the f–king idiot sparky.
