the funniest part of course is that he did the cartoon, put the poster of trump with 'open season', put the witches and gave them shotguns, and then thought about his audience for a second, and wrote TRUMP HUNT in big letters, just in case

political cartoons are maybe the single worst medium with regard to "show don't tell." the overwhelming majority, whatever their politics, would be massively improved by an editor nixing some number of written labels. also a high ratio of speech balloons contorting into overworded messes to explain the background and then convey the joke, which to other humorists is usually a sign that the joke isn't going to work.

Occasionally I wonder, when the WP comes up, whether Jeff Bezos is not in fact a more malign or potentially more malign figure than Trump, taking a broad view. But I guess that isn't the conversation Ben Garrison is interested in having.

I'm sort of grimly fascinated by Ben Garrison. How does he claim to be a "rogue cartoonist" when one of his defining features is completely unquestioning loyalty to the president of the USA? What's he going to do when the Trump project inevitably disintegrates? Is there a point where he would be disillusioned? What then?

Camaraderie at Arms Length, Wednesday, 31 May 2017 20:41 (one year ago) Permalink

He's also written a long article entitled "Advice for Aspiring Cartoonists" in case anyone wants to follow in his footsteps.

Camaraderie at Arms Length, Wednesday, 31 May 2017 20:45 (one year ago) Permalink

when the Trump project inevitably disintegrates it will be because of the sinister machinations of the shadowy elite made up of the Republican establishment the Deep State and the Rothschilds

soref, Wednesday, 31 May 2017 20:46 (one year ago) Permalink

the media has its golden goose so the "project" (whatever that is) disintegrating not likely to happen. he could be impeached and exiled from the country and we will still hear about every single dumb thing he tweets for the rest of his and our livee.

impeachment or resignation or criminal charges of some sort is the disintegration I'm talking about, sorry if you would like that phrased differently.

"How does he claim to be a "rogue cartoonist" when one of his defining features is completely unquestioning loyalty to the president of the USA?"

this is trump's base generally; hence the focus on the evil media and derp state machinations to explain why having trump in charge isn't magically fulfilling all their dreams and changing the entire system.

Trump had the conspiracy theorist types in his pocket from the get-go; had assumed that if he were ever to win he'd lose them instantly, like they'd have to think "welp, he's a lizard person/bilderberg stooge/whatever now". But the combative nature of his presidency, the fact that it always looks just about to fall apart, has made it so you can now maintain wake up sheeple cred while repping for the most powerful man in the United States.

looks more like Loretta imo

It's relevant because America's relationship with Trump is much like Leroy and Loretta's marriage. Trump is drunk again at a party and dancing with a floozy while wearing a lampshade. Loretta is spending Leroy's payceck at the department store again.

I'm not sure which one is which here, but it makes sense if you think about it.

Police with their guns already drawn, confronted by several black men armed with:
1) a burning torch,
2) a set of brass knuckles, and
3) a stick,
plus one unarmed black man, but the police are talking as if they are totally about to die? Weirdly realistic.

imo, rightwing cartoons that are full-on alt-right/4-chan neo-nazi like this guy are not really 'batshit', I think to qualify as batshit the cartoon has to be inadvertently giving away more than the cartoonist intended? (Ben Garrison uses alt-right tropes but doesn't really understand them because he's a clueless boomer and is therefore batshit)

I had a look at the cartoonist's twitter feed, and I still can't quite work out what his angle is tbh - https://twitter.com/mackaycartoons/media

(it doesn't help that most of his cartoons are about Canadian politics, about which I know next to nothing).

He doesn't seem particularly right-wing, or particularly 'political' at all for a political cartoonist (which is maybe why the cartoon is confusing, it's what happens when an "I make fun of idiots on the left AND the right" guy tries to tackle this subject?)

soref, Wednesday, 20 June 2018 18:24 (four days ago) Permalink

from his Canadian political cartoons he seems left-leaning (seems both anti-Doug Ford and anti-Justin Trudeau), but also seems to think supporting the more left-leaning NDP is mostly a lost cause. So a pretty typical left of center Canadian basically.

This doesn't really get me much closer to guessing what he's going for with the above cartoon. It doesn't quite work as parody imo.
