An Obama supporter, and the creator of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and the director of "The Avengers," Whedon, in a video that went viral over the weekend, warns that a Mitt Romney victory in November could unleash a swath of brain-hungry zombies the likes of which the world has never seen before.
Hunkered down in his kitchen, and warning that it's time to start stockpiling canned goods, Whedon says:
You know, like a lot of liberal Americans, I was excited when Barack Obama took office four years ago. But it's a very different world now, and Mitt Romney is a very different candidate - one with the vision and determination to cut through business-as-usual politics and finally put this country back on the path to the zombie apocalypse.
Romney is ready to make the deep rollbacks in health care, education, social services, reproductive rights, that will guarantee poverty, unemployment, overpopulation, disease, rioting - all crucial elements in creating a nightmare zombie wasteland. But it's his commitment to ungovern corporate privilege that will nosedive this economy into true insolvency and chaos. The kind of chaos you can't buy back. ...
If Mitt takes office, sooner or later the zombies will come for all of us.
