The last thread ran for three years and was getting a bit long, so let's update things a bit. For those interested, here's where I usually find most of these:

-TownHall
-Jewish World Review
-Cagle Cartoons
-Faithmouse
-Patriot Art

-and the most WTF thing you're going to find in three copy-pasted panels: Day by Day

As always, if you find a new source for this shit, please add a link here.

Starting off with a Faithmouse, apparently not understanding the whole "marrying someone for a green card/citizenship" thing:

While Sarkozy is most hated by minority youths in the poor housing projects on the outskirts of major cities, most of the violence was in city centers. Reuters quoted an internal police memo that said there had not been "any large demonstrations of urban violence in sensitive neighborhoods." In Paris, at least, the protesters were mostly white and under age 30, similar to the crowds who protested a new labor law last year that would have made it easier for companies to fire young workers.

One of the reasons I pay attention to these things is that even the most absolute batshit/what-the-fuck-century-do-you-live-in/talking point-soaked /either-medically-crazy-or-have-a- perception-so-schewed-from-actual-reality -as-to-be-effectively-crazy/etc is that it's not just some random scribblings of an asshole with an art tablet wasting away the lunch hour at his dayjob. This shit is printed in fairly important places: WSJ, Detroit News, Investors Business Daily, etc.

In other words, much of this is reflective of what mainline American conservatism has come to, and the language it uses.

Sharpton Security Tightens After Death Threats
MSNBC, CBS Report Death Threats After Imus' Firing
The staff of the Rev. Al Sharpton's National Action Network reported late Friday night that they were being forced to tighten security at their headquarters because of the growing number of death threats against the outspoken activist.

NewsChannel 4 reports that Sharpton's personal security detail was being beefed up as well.

While Sharpton received some death threats since MSNBC and CBS pulled the plug on Don Imus' show, the two news networks said they got even more death threats Friday.

Note: this is word for word what is on the frontpage at [Removed Illegal Link] to the "Politically Correct" Cartoons site.

Every week Jim takes aim at the liberals in my nationally published, conservative, political cartoons. Bookmark this page to see my latest cartoon each week, and peruse the Cartoon Archives of over 400 "Politically Correct" cartoons.

Conservative and PC? Not at all... These cartoons are anything but PC. They are political and, indeed, correct. They also annoy liberals expecting PC cartoons!Also, from his bio:

About Jim Huber
Jim Huber is a nationally published cartoonist, with cartoons that appear in, most notably, National Review magazine.

He's been drawing cartoons ever since he was too lazy to draw realistic pictures. Actually, he's been honing his skills since he was about five years old (that's 28 years), but has been freelancing cartooning for over 18 years, starting with New York Newsday. He was a cartoonist and graphics editor for his high school and college papers. In college, in 1993, he started Politically Correct, which he continues to do today for papers, publications, and Web sites across the country.

Jim's current professional cartooning work extends beyond his political cartoon. He has drawn cartoons for various political, private, and commercial clients. In addition, Jim owns and operates a web design firm, Huberspace, which specializes in conservative/Republican Web sites.

all these cartoons do is subconsciously reinforce this weird imagery of libs/minorities as simpleminded minstrels. it's weird because i get the sense that these dudes drop in all sorts of political chatter and their thought process hasn't been simplified into cartoon form, because what you see is as deep as it's ever gonna get.

"Both sides do it" and "Michael Moore is the liberal version of Ann Coulter", etc. The Slacktivist guy best summed this up as "Broderian Cowardice"

Gaggle just uses badly rendered versions of any media type. It's from newsbusters, brent bozell's group that doesn't exactly support an active free press.

With that, let's begin today's round:



I'm curious about the inclusion of both Howard and the Opie & Anthony shows. While I understand the need for any op-ed toon to have a quick & dirty signpost to refer to, both his & the O&A shows have satellite-only for over a year. Oh and Rosie says things we don't like, so she gets to go in there w/ Imus. I'm assuming that the other depection of her(a filled garbage can sans garbage bag w/ "Rosie" on the side) was wither too subtle or not subtle enough.



"complacent"?





Now surely we can all agree with this strong rebuke of the cost of post-secondary education and the mountains of debt on the shoulders of american graduates.



Which is kinda funny, being posted on the same site that runs blog posts like Why Mormons are NOT Christians - Part 2, and in the exact same frame.







Hold up, wasn't this the same guy who did a toon about female service members not fearing any leering harassment at all due to constantly packing loaded M4s while they triapsed about the Green Zone with shorts, bare midriffs, and a noticeable lack of flak jackets?

You want to show a university in your cartoon but you don't feel like drawing today. You know that universities often look like big houses, but with columns and cloisters and stuff. Do you a) Do a GIS for "University" and stick that picture in the strip? Or do you b) GIS "big house" and "columns" and cut and paste the columns onto the house, knowing that people will logically figure out it's a university?

5) Josh was right again in last week's Cartoon Violence; the only way we can show americans interacting with information is to show them watching tv, and we as the audience need to see the tv b/c watching tv is fun.

The Edwards cartoon is odd, as well, since the 4 examples are all ideals that the person in question (arguably) failed to live up to, whereas poverty could never be called something anyone aims for.

And that second cartoonist needs to learn how to spell "seize"- surely that's a cardinal error amongst cartoonists?

Last I checked he was still peddling half-truths, extremely blurry logic, an obsession with the diabolical ACLU, "Terri Schiavo's murder," and art which, while clean in its linework, is painfully jumbled in its composition. Half the cartoons don't even make sense! I can't even figure out if he's a rabid Catholic or a rabid anti-Catholic bigot. These are not good cartoons, people.

I don't think this is "political discourse"; editorial cartoons once had a place where they could cause riots in the streets*. Now, anyone with a scanner and an internet connection can enter the fray and people with no legit training or talent can say the Crrrrrrrrrraziest things. It's populist chatter and it's good to know what this stuff looks like and to get a sense of what depths the POPULAR discourse plumbs, to say nothing of what sort of people and concepts the media are willing to hire to fulfill their strawman agendas, masturbation fantasies, hate fucks, hagiographies and to fill in that chunk of blank space on page 34A.

*yeah, yeah, yeah: Danish Muhammed, but that's an odd and rare case, to say the least.

i use "political discourse" broadly as "the sum of all political discussions in a given region," i.e. encompassing the mainstream as well as the kitchen-sink discourse. if we use a stricter definition i still think these cartoons are symptomatic of how fierce the high-level political discourse is.

(this is badly organized and fairly stream-of-consciousness and i think i repeat myself a few times, so plz bear w/ me)

These things are mirroring what's said in the greater rightwing noise machine, which is why I pay attention to them as a way of checking in on the land of cracked-out John Birch batshittery.

One of the aspects of the current american RWNM is that the talking points and attacks are identical, from the talking heads on the shouty shows to the bloggers and down to the cartoonists level, so paying attention to the drawings is a quick shorthand(rapidly digested, rapidly passed on) to what the rest of the world.

Are these guys horrible for spreading the shit that gets said elsewhere, and being little more than conduits for the LGF message-boards writ large for what passes for Republican dialogue nowadays? Should we damn them for merely echoing the message, or by giving voice to their personal eternal and intenal font of toxic radicalism and 24/7 cognitive dissonance?

As to their impact, i don't think it's much more than everything else that gets churned out, in terms of message or reinforcement of rightwing strawmen/beliefs, etc. The fact is that some of these are little more than blog posts, and some of them are syndicated nationally(either on op-ed pages or in the comics).

The offensiveness of some of this shit to me is that while it is what I take as a personal attack and as reinforcement of the current debasement of overall dialogue, it's SO seriously fucking lazy, both in terms of actual drawing mechanics(the cut-in-paste mentioned before) and quarter-assed attempts at wit(michaelmoore/algore is fat lol). And the relative lack of the toons that completely lock into to the authoritarian things going on ain't too much, so even the shitty ones are brought to the forefront in an effort to search for balance or whatever.

It's like, yeah many of them blow goats as op-ed cartoons, but their bilious, hatefilled, and heavily anti-american message makes 'em worse.

Political cartooning is a skill extant for over a century & a half(in America, at least), one that can result in art. While there are plenty of half-assed left-leaning toons, this shit adds insult to injury.

But let's not freak out too much over mister faithmouse actually showing up here or our reactions. As the guy who took over posting these things from ethan last year(or whenever it was), I think it's hilarious that one of the cartoonists _actually_ drew a ILX-thread-specific image.

Hi guys, the man writes cartoons about how Christian he is, and obviously thinks that most people should share his nutty opinions. Let's not get enamored or starstruck (hilarity!) with this nutty Christian dude who can maybe draw but is much more marked by the fact that he hates people who can kill their little babies, because they are obviously little babies and not "choices" and us librruls need to shut up because there is no other side to this arguement.

2) complaining about them covering pointless shit and not, say, U.S. troop deaths when they've spent _years_ vociferously supporting the assholes who've completely prohibited coverage of returning coffins, who go out of their way on a pretty much weekly to downplay loss of life("why, we lost FAR more in WWII, what are these DFH complaining about?!") and overall sacrifice that a very few american citizens are having to make b/c of all this, and who deliberately want a Murdoch-style bullshit tabloid media where entertainment is now information, etc.

I'll check the Econ piece in a bit, but I think we're going to be plenty fucked for a good while. It's one of those things that I was talking about on another thread; that in America, we have to go thru intense shit once a generation(or every so often) before we give a fuck about our culture & politics. then we spent years of blood and sweat and warface to finally boost everything up again, before our kids come along and ruin it all somewhere down the line, and their kids have to fix it one more.

Still, it'll be interesting to see what happens when a significant enough portion of the populace realize they're now "working poor" as opposed to "middle class". I think the howling angst will generate such a loud thrashing to make the most rightwing batshit cartoon in this thread look like a Buckley column.

okay, i agree. it's like, jesus christ, grandpa and grandma had to go thru all this shit, make it so that we had GI bills, unions, and whatnot just for my dad to come along, attend a public university on a GI bill and a living wage, join a teachers union when he got out, and then vote repub for the rest of his life(barring the Perot vote).

Schools everywhere are getting forced into teaching creationism as a scientific theory, that's fine, but no school anywhere caves to the sorceror lobby and suddenly it's a national crisis.

No, Moses is down here in the corner Mystery Science Theatre 3000 style. And so he's parting the waters to lead them little children away from them Islamists and gays.

Right, but... the only figure seen traveling through the parted waters is Pharaoh's Public Schools (represented as a Roman charioteer, admittedly) - while the waters themselves represent the similarly EVIL "Convert" and "Gay Pride." So is Pharaoh parting the waters for himself? I'd say I wish there was a label on whatever it is that's causing the chariot wreck, but inevitably it would be a used copy of SORCERY FUN. Ooooooof. Between this guy and the one who does the furryesque, motto-laden politician portraits, it's been a pretty good hunt lately.

Setting aside the batshit vision of educational content, I also wonder about this person's grasp of educational policy. Why is it, for example, that TAXES are what keep the children from fleeing to their beloved CHRISTIAN SCHOOL and HOME SCHOOL? And if they are stuck there, why is there a VACANCY on the door? Maybe the tattoo on DEPT OF EDUCATION's bicep holds a clue, but as far as I can tell it says "EDUGRODE" which isn't very illuminating. It's a shame this artist seems to be kind of a one-issue nut - surely the grim spectre of CRITICAL THINKING has infected other sectors of our once-great nation? It's such a great bludgeon, in any case; any time someone raises concerns about your work - any kind of concerns! - you can claim they've been corrupted by CRITICAL THINKING...

Jumping back above, I love how a single man is both NEA and CALIF DEPT OF EDUCATION.

Cartoonist clearly has no idea how many resaurants end up as failed business ventures -- very expensive ones. Owning a restaurant is no guarantee of solvency, in fact rather the opposite.

The State is obviously trying to clamp down on their freedom of speech with FCC licensing requirements for broadcasting such as news breaks, station identification, and so on.

1) DDT is HARDLY the only insecticide used for killing mosquitoes and I feel comfortable in saying that even IF one were to discount the environmental issues inherent in the use of DDT, it's not even the most effective available insecticide currently in use.
2) Is this guy suggesting that we should be giving more support to countries in which malaria is rampant? If so, why not say it in a less oblique fashion? Or is he strawmanning mass death by disease in order to back up a poorly thought out anti-environmental talking point?
3) Batshit rightwing cartoonist guy, are you ACTUALLY arguing against bald eagles and for DDT? Really?
4) So DDT and/or chemicals with a similar makeup are not being used in outside the US at all, huh? And there are bald eagles in countries with rampant malarial infection, huh?

Reason's greatest failure is its assumption that it can trump unreason, and modern times show that ain't the case. Like these assholes harping on the oil-for-food thing. It doesn't matter that american companies were the driving force behind that shit, it can just serve as some bullshit connection that disingenious john birch-soaked jerkwads can use as a cudgel to attack. It doesn't matter that when the oil-for-food thing was actually looked into, it turned out to be nothing much there(at least on the U.N.'s part), which is why the brouhaha died off without much fanfare, these assholes have nothing left, so they have to go back to weak ass attack on discreted U.N. connections, or, even better, attacking a president who's been out of power for about six or seven years.

"Somebody wants to make the stuff in china? fine. But they're going to pay an import tariff that works out to more than the cost of domestic production."

Uhh...Why?

I don't want a big international economics debate but "American Flags" is not what comes to my mind when someone asks me "what do you mean by 'critical infrastructure' ". Yes, there is always the chance that if China suddenly declares war on the U.S., they might decide to bogart all the U.S flags, inconveniently leaving us with nothing but our miniature Mexican flags from Cinco de Mayo and making for a real bummer of a 4th of July, but I think we'd be able to make due. And China would never declare war during summer anyway.

On a slightly more serious note, there are seriously very few things that are less important than the fact the dyed and stitched pieces of cloth that proudly wave above used car dealerships all across America are not actually made by noble and upstanding people within the nation the cloth is supposed to represent, but are in fact made by small brown foriegners.

I'm sure Americans make a bitchin flag, but if I'm ever feeling patriotic and wanna purchase one, I think I should have the ability to purchase a cheaper imported one if I desire without some artifical "made by foreigners omg!" penalty stamped onto it to steer me toward a path of patriotic correctness.

Stocks plunge; Dow falls more than 400

By JOE BEL BRUNO, AP Business Writer 37 minutes ago

NEW YORK - Wall Street suffered its biggest plunge of the year Thursday, leading global markets lower as investors fled stocks amid increasing uneasiness about the mortgage and corporate lending markets. The Dow Jones industrials briefly fell nearly 450 points, while Treasury yields plunged as investors moved money into bonds.

Investors who had been able to shrug off discomfort about subprime mortgage problems and a more difficult environment for corporate borrowing appeared to finally succumb to those concerns after another disappointing home sales report from the Commerce Department early Thursday. The Dow surpassed the 416 points it lost on Feb. 27 after a nearly 10 percent decline in Chinese stock markets.

I was about to propose the exact same thing.

The recent spread of Obama caricatures re: the evils of diplomacy brings me back to a question I posed a while ago: how long does it take a public figure to become standardized in the pens of cartoonists? If Obama is elected, how many years into his presidency will we go before we stop seeing things like that one where his top teeth are 90% of his head?

There's something about the accusations of hypocrisy here which is amusing, seeing as how the guy being reported on runs enough media outlets to deliberately increase the level of sensationalism in the culture.

Again, the assertion that context, intent, or motive doesn't matter at all in any crime is bullshit and so thoroughly ignorant of both the letter and the spirit of centuries of anglo-american common law. If your truck blows a tire and you uncontrollably swerve into oncoming traffic which results in somebody dying, you're automatically guilty of murder now, ain't you. Terrorism is only so a crime so much as property is damaged or people are killed. Hate speech and hate crime are the same thing, right? like, they both have the word "hate" in them!

Well that headline likely refers to the two war-supporting, Bush apologists from the Brooking Institute who the administration sent to Iraq to get piggy-back rides from Gen. Petraeus, and who came back to provide the "even these feerce librul critiks think the Serge is werkin" meme. The fact that the media still buys into this suggests a high Midichlorian count in the Executive Branch.

Maria :D, Thursday, 9 August 2007 05:42 (7 years ago) Permalink

what i mean is that modern american politics is tribal(blue state/red state bullshit, for example), and there are plenty of people who have had the "media is biased, and therefore untrustworthy and to be discarded" thing drilled into their heads that they can only believe certain media outlets that agree with what the Party is putting out.

the postmodern relativism bit refers to people only believing in things in certain people report them. Stephen Colbert understands this better than almost everybody else nowadays(check his interview with the Onion). It's the attack of "objective media" by people who would happily replace fact with opinion, which, as guys like Chris Hedges write, is a big step towards American Fascism.

re: Postmodernism in Batshitistan. Where I see this is when radio/tv hosts keep pushing a discredited meme with the knowledge that their audience is unlikely to know or care that it has been discredited. Hannity is particularly bad.

Also, there's a strange focusing on one particular irrelevant detail to represent the whole--Global Warming can't be true because Al Gore has a high electricity bill. The O'Reilly campaign against YearlyKos is an example of this: pulling a few comments from a site with hundreds of thousands of contributers to tarnish the entire net roots.

I think a lot of the consumers of this stuff realize that the tactics used are underhanded, but believe that since their perspective is more morally pristine than the enemy's, it's okay to get their hands dirty. Hence them going insane over Dan Rather and not giving a flying f about Jeff Gannon (or Abu Ghraib--which was just a frat party!)

mulla atari, Thursday, 9 August 2007 22:36 (7 years ago) Permalink

I figured that the batshitters knew that they were using a form of postmodernism - in fact, that they did it on purpose. If you can see a weakness in your "enemy", then you can exploit it, and the conflation of certain sorts of academia/media/leftism can give you a lot of extra leeway.

emil.y, Thursday, 9 August 2007 22:49 (7 years ago) Permalink

Part of the pomo bit i'm talking about is best described by Stephen Colbert, and perfectly encaptured by "truthiness":

...We weren't thrilled with Bush because we thought he was a good guy at that point, we were thrilled with him because we thought that he probably had hired people who would fuck up our enemies, regardless of how they had to do it. That was for us a very good thing, and I can't argue with the validity of that feeling.

But that has been extended to the idea that authoritarian is better than authority. Because authoritarian means there's only one authority, and that authority has got to be the President, has got to be the government, and has got to be his allies. What the right-wing in the United States tries to do is undermine the press. They call the press "liberal," they call the press "biased," not necessarily because it is or because they have problems with the facts of the left—or even because of the bias for the left, because it's hard not to be biased in some way, everyone is always going to enter their editorial opinion—but because a press that has validity is a press that has authority. And as soon as there's any authority to what the press says, you question the authority of the government—it's like the existence of another authority. So that's another part of truthiness. Truthiness is "What I say is right, and nothing anyone else says could possibly be true." It's not only that I feel it to be true, but that I feel it to be true. There's not only an emotional quality, but there's a selfish quality.

It's the authoritarian aspect I'm talking about, where one of the side effects is to dispute the authoritative. In other words, if you know your shit, you can call others on their's. And rightwing authoritarian types can't have that. Because your mindset is completely dependent on the big tough daddy who sets the rules and knows best, and NOTHING can question that, because it is in the questioning that the possibility of error or that daddy might not be completely right, and the RWA mindset is (deliberately) stunted enough not to be able to handle that variance, or any shading.

So b/c the RWA thing so needs the unquestioned authority, it will attack anyone or anything that could possibly have a valid standing. You attack those climate scientists who are disagreeing with what daddy and his Party had decried, and then you attack science itself. You try to weaken science by bringing in religion, and teaching not-science along with science. That's one of the problems of the home-school/creationist/ID thing, a deliberate attempt(read "The Wedge Document", this shit really is planned out) to attack any authority that can contest Daddy.

kingfish, Thursday, 9 August 2007 23:22 (7 years ago) Permalink

Three people who really understand what's going on, but who really need to meet and talk this shit over, is Stephen Colbert, Bob Altenmeyer(free book is online), and Chris Hedges. I've repped for the last two on several threads.

kingfish, Thursday, 9 August 2007 23:26 (7 years ago) Permalink

Here's a good bit of Hedges' writing, about stuff like the Creationism Museum and how totalitarian movements begin with the deliberate confusing of fact w/ opinion. Because once you destroy objective fact, everything becomes opinion, and any unpopular or unusable opinions can just be brushed away.

kingfish, Thursday, 9 August 2007 23:30 (7 years ago) Permalink

What Colbert is talking about seems to predate pomo--come from the same primordial sludge that created Fascism, Nazism. Of course it also sounds like how nearly every religion functions--ignore contrary data!

mulla atari, Thursday, 9 August 2007 23:35 (7 years ago) Permalink

Actually, Fascism predates Nazism by a coupla thousand years, but yeah, he's definitely talking about a deliberate pre-Enlightenment mindset, where the church was the only Authority and the despot ruled by Divine Hand. In other words, the natural order is the Moral Order(George Lakhoff talks about this a lot in _Moral Politics_). E.g. Men are stronger than women, and God made everything the way they are, so men rule over women because God says so, and questioning that is questioning God. (etc etc etc)

Also, this is where the power of the claim of "biblical literalism" comes in(despite the fact that such a thing is impossible). If i convince myself and stamp my feet angrily to demand that my reading of the Bible(a n inerrant, perfect book written by God) is the only one possible and that all my political standings come from this bible(despite oddly focusing on Mosaic law and not Christian), then I am true and valid and it's in the book! If your upbringing was deliberately stunted and damaged to where questioning authority figures(dad, cops, the general, the president) is beaten out of you and, as a result, you're so insecure you can't handle any ambiguity at all, you have to delude yourself into something you believe to be true and unchanging. Why, marriage has ALWAYS been about romantic love between a man and a woman!

It seems that "anchor babies" refers to children of ... oh fuck it, here's the wikipedia entry:

Anchor baby or jackpot baby are terms used to refer to a child born in the United States to illegal aliens or other non-citizens. Such a child is legally a citizen of the United States. The term refers to a resident alien's child's role in facilitating "chain migration" under the provisions of the Immigration and Nationality Services Act of 1965. Immigration reductionists claim that the baby would become the "anchor" of a chain by which its family may receive benefits from social programs, and by which the parents may themselves eventually become lawful permanent residents or citizens of the United States. Anchor baby has been characterized by some as a derogatory term.[1][2][3]

I took a break after I lost my job back in mid-august. One of the things they didn't like was my internet usage, which was used as part of the excuse to cut me since the company is shedding employees thanks to a down market.

My anxiety levels during my unemployment got untenable; I had an anxiety attack that wednesday and spent the day before I posted that all tranqed up. I couldn't face the repeated exposure to all these assholes reminding me of how unstable everything(incl. my financial standing) is and how they're working night & day to make things worse, so I put my political intake on pause. Hell, I even stopped listening to Thom Hartmann & Ed Schultz during the day.

I got a better job now(less high-tech, more blue collar, FAR better working enviro and wages and they have an office cat), but i'm not sitting at a desk or a labbench for 8 hours straight anymore, which is why my posting has fallen off.

I still don't feel stable/secure enough to start following all this shit again, so i'm going to let you guys take care of that for a while.

Faithmouse Pornography

In February of 2007, Dan Lacey registered an account on the Something Awful forums and posted sexually explicit pictures of Faithmouse characters in FYAD, and again in GBS. Though his foray into furry porn was not well received by FYAD, who seemed only to wish that he would never post there, GBS embraced Lacey's latest offerings as a sign of his spiral into insanity and began to request commissions. Richard Kyanka requested that Lacey collaborate with Shmorky in a flash animation project, but there has been no word on further developments.

Only the FiestaCat was commissioned, for five dollars I think, as a thank-you to someone at SA who was defending my work. I have a request thread in POE, but it isn't cartoons for pay; I just work down the list when I have some spare time and draw whatever anyone would like. None of those cartoons have been posted here.

I've been banned for close to a year by moderator Ozma at SA. I posted an article about my winning an award from an alternative newsweekly which mentioned SA, and another about Google notifying me that they were dropping faithmouse from the search term 'Britney Spears no underwear' because they had discovered a 'hidden' St. Michael The Archangel prayer on my site, and she said I was just shamelessly using SA to promote my cartoon. I logged in a few times since then, but all I get is a picture of a semen-covered penis embraced by a tarantula.

Anyway, thanks for posting.

I don't much care about SA drama, but I'd like some more details on this bit.

MONSIEUR MALLAH & THE BRAIN

Sadistic supervillains and gay lovers. One is a talking gorilla and the other is a disembodied brain in a jar. They’ve been searching to create a new body for the Brain so he and Monsieur Mallah may consummate their love. Last appeared in DC’s Teen Titans, aimed at teens. No gay heroes in the book, just these gay villains.

cross-post from gay Superheroes thread
