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.
