Bitter xenophobia disguised as music criticism   Wednesday, June 19, 2013 (1:28 a.m.) 

And it isn't even that well hidden. It is ironic that a film music review of the story of Superman, which has always been an ultimate immigrant('s) saga, can be tainted with so much ethno-chauvinism. I'm sure John Williams would be shocked to hear that his music promoted ethno-nationalism of any kind.

Yes, I'm sure Williams, who has written countless concert pieces in celebration of various American events, places, cities, institutions etc., would be shocked to hear that any of his music be associated primarily with America...wait, what?

Read it again. A democratic Obama supporting John Williams would never imagine his music used as ethno-nationalist anthem for Tea Party sentiments as expressed in this review. The review criticises Zimmer for being a foreigner, therefore not qualified to write music for Superman. But Superman was invented by immigrant-Jewish Canadians. It is an ultimate immigrant's saga. Has nothing to do with white nativism as expressed in this review.

Okay, you're gonna have to give me a quote on that one. There's nowhere in the review where that's even implied.
