Ignore this, I’m just trying to see if Tumblr is letting me post anything.

"Here are two stories that are in the news right now. I have nothing to say about either of them, but perhaps if I combine them into one image it will seem like I am presenting some sort of opinion."
-Bill Day (and far too many other editorial cartoonists)

I’ll skip over the obvious ‘Justice has thrived thanks to the efforts of Eric Holder, a good cartoon’ joke (it’s pretty weaksauce, anyway) and instead skip to pointing out that it’s not as if Holder’s successor will get any support or credit from Ramirez and other conservative pundits. Of course they’ll immediately denounce the incoming AG as partisan, ultra-liberal, anti-American. It’s not the person that matters, it’s that they serve under a Democrat. That establishes them as ‘The most liberal, socialist, unAmerican person EVAH!’ regardless of why they are. Just as whatever leading Democrat at the time is the most ‘liberal, socialist, blah blah blah.’ Don’t believe me? Wait until Hilary Clinton is campaigning in earnest and look at what’s leveled at her by the Right.

But Ramirez won’t just come out and say ‘I don’t like Democrats because they’re not Republicans,’ will he? It’s not like he’s against Holder specifically because of a values stance so much as childish tribalism. I’d take politics/American pundits/humanity a lot more seriously if there was actual nuance.

The rest of the country won’t be able to speak freely until white men choke to death on their own privilege. A good cartoon.

(slow clap) wow 





Wait, there was a joke there? (I mean, other than Branco’s laughably wrong understanding of what ‘White privilege’ is)
