Earlier this week when I posted some political cartoons, our friend rawgod wrote a thought-provoking comment:
Political cartoonists take aggravating facts and give them life. And laughter.
But what about republican-leaning cartoonists, what are they putting out? How about giving us a glimpse from the other side (if there is one!)? I bet your readers would find them even funnier than these.
And admittedly, I typically don’t post the cartoons I run across that are opposite of my own beliefs, but … that makes me seem not very open-minded, doesn’t it? In truth, I don’t run across many, for I don’t haunt conservative news sites, but I do see several a week. So, I thought … “Why not?” But, a funny thing happened on the way to the right … I became side-tracked by a few headlines …
- Anti-Semitic New York Times Runs ANOTHER Cartoon Attacking Netanyahu
- Jews Simply Must Arm Themselves. Now.
- Parents Who Let Their Toddlers Choose Their Own Genders Are Either Mentally Ill Or Evil
- Kids In Philadelphia Muslim Society: ‘We Will Chop Off Their Heads’ For Allah
- Administration Expands Conscience Protections For Pro-Life Health Care Workers
- Why Facebook’s War On ‘Hate’ Is Just A Thin Excuse To Censor Conservatives
- Democrats Search for Ways to Downplay Trump’s Great Economy
And on and on and on it goes. We have asked ourselves so many times in the past 2+ years how on earth Trump’s supporters can be so blind that despite his many atrocities, they still think he is great. Well, folks, here is our answer. They are being fed a daily diet of this cow poop. They are being told that poor Trump is the victim, that Muslims, liberals and democrats are out to get them and they must be constantly on their guard.
I literally had to go take a shower at 2:30 a.m. after visiting several conservative news sites, for I felt filthy. And while trolling through the conservative sites was enough to make me want to punch something, enough to raise my blood pressure, it also made me realize that … we need to know these things. We need to know what these outlets are feeding their followers. It is knowledge we really need to arm ourselves with. Just a thought.
Anyway, I did not find the plethora of right-wing cartoons that I expected to find, but found enough. I may do a second post next week, but I’ve spent about as much time on New York Post, Washington Examiner, Breitbart and The Blaze as I can stomach. The ones I’m presenting today fall into three main areas: Jerry Nadler’s call for Barr to testify before the House Judiciary Committee; the 2020 democratic candidates; and of course, Nancy Pelosi.
Naturally the invitation to Barr to appear before the committee is a fertile ground …
And it’s no surprise that both sides, actually, are finding humour in the sheer number of candidates vying for the democratic nomination …
And then there’s Nancy Pelosi …
And that is as much as I can take for today … this must be digested in small doses, else it causes massive indigestion, as I have learned.
