Hah, I haven't seen this yet but the layers of "not getting it" in such a position are astoundingly innumberable.

This is exactly where I'm at. Rorschach doesn't sound like Rorschach at all (assuming that journal entry in the opening is meant to be his, or that it's really him at all). Also, the not-so subtle Trump commentary really felt like it distracted from the story.

To me, this Rorschach reads as one of those South Park-like libertarians, who like to call themselves "centrist", "reasonable" and "above it all" while letting some extremely heinous shit pass. Less "apolitical" and more "terminally apathetic".

Except he's not apathetic. He cares A LOT. Rorshach is not a middle of the road guy or centrist. He's out murdering people left and right because of his extreme hard line beliefs.

which is why his most famous quote is about "looking down and whispering no", right?

How does that line mean he's apathetic? If anything it reinforces the fact he's disgusted by the world and people around him which is one of the driving factors for his entire mission in life.

Edit: I will say he can be apathetic to certain things like normal human emotions and interactions but in general I would not call him apathetic.

You mean the journal left in the crank file of a right-wing newspaper prone to printing bullshit conspiracies is going to be taken seriously enough to spur radical change...?

God, I hope not. This is going to be worse than I thought...

Which feeds more into the theory in which this is a different Rorschach l. Also important to note that they are not a reliable narrator.

Maybe I'm missing something since I only really read Watchmen once but Rorschach didn't read as a centrist like this to me then. I got hard right vibes from the guy.

Just realized that the Rorschach seen in this preview is probably Ozymandias.

Not necessarily. This could be someone else dressed like Rorschach, while the original Rorschach is still the current Question. It's comic books. Literally anything can lead to anything with enough bullshitting. I still believe Rorschach is the current Question.
