Joss Whedon, the director of the blockbuster comic book movie, The Avengers, revealed the extreme extent of his left-wing politics in a Wednesday post on Twitter. After asserting that "the climate IS changing - if we can't, that makes us dumber than weather #ClimateChangeIsReal," Whedon called for spiteful and heavy-handed measures against his ideological opponents on that issue: "Policy makers who deny basic scientific truth should also be denied penicillin, horseless carriages, air time on the magic box of shadows".
As you might expect, the reaction from some conservatives on Twitter was swift:
Back in 2012, Whedon inserted an abortion story line into a comic book based on his Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV series, and decried how "a woman’s right to choose is under attack as much as it’s ever been, and that’s a terrible and dangerous thing for this country."
