“You will not replace us,” basically,”juden raus,” with a bit more of a topical flavor.
Still having trouble figuring out what Mudd is up to. I mean, yeah, he’s fomenting chaos, which in TOS seemed to be something he did more through simple negligence, but Mark Farinas and the writers of Discovery both seem to attribute more to malevolence. What I’m unclear on is what his angle is here. How does he benefit? As much as anything, I suspect the Vulcan captain is more likely to seek out Starfleet assistance if the situation is spiralling out of control than try to sweep it under the rug. That would be the logical thing to do, but even a halfway conscientious human seems likely to do the same.
The goal seems to be avoiding a stop at a Starfleet ship or facility by goading the population toward killing off the stripy subset so the disease, and need to stop, is removed. Given the disease has spread outside that group we might see Mudd steer things toward hating everyone with the disease by linking them with the stripe type as being the same.
Given Mudd’s fear of arrest and due to getting psychological treatment for a second time, and given the previous comic, it stands to reason the treatment may be horrific in the style of A Clockwork Orange’s streatment’s end results. Mudd may fear loss of self, even if that self is horrible. DIS to TOS shows us the treatment worked to some extent, but this comic shows it may not have, which implies the treatment is horrific in method rather than result.
