Marvel Comics, Art by Jack Kirby.

One of the more unfortunate images to come out of the deadly violence incited by Donald Trump last week was the sight of several pro-Trump rioters wearing clothing with Captain America’s shield as they ransacked the Capitol.

Like for instance he defends democracy instead of working to overthrow it like Trump’s supporters when they interrupted the certification of Joe Biden’s lawful election victory.

Fortunately, they’ll be pleased to know that according to Neal Kirby, son of comics legend Jack Kirby who co-created Cap with Joe Simon in 1941, his father would wholeheartedly agree with them.

In a stirring statement shared Tuesday night by CNN’s Jake Tapper, Kirby angrily denounced Trump’s rioters who, he said, were examples of everything Captain America — and his father — opposed.

“My father, Jack Kirby, along with his partner Joe Simon, created Captain America in 1941.

A quick Google search turned up Trump as Captain America on T-shirts, posters, even a flag! And just in case there is any ambiguity, Kirby added: “Captain America is the absolute antithesis of Donald Trump.

Where Captain America fights for our country and democracy, Trump fights for personal power and autocracy.

Where Captain America stands with the common man, Trump stands with the powerful and privileged.

“My father, Jack Kirby, and Joe Simon, the creators of Captain America and WWII veterans, would be absolutely sickened by these images,” he concluded.

If Donald Trump had the qualities and character of Captain America, the White House would be a shining symbol of truth and integrity, not a festering cesspool of lies and hypocrisy.

Donald Trump is not one of them.
