So not just any child, but specifically a black girl who was escorted to school through white mobs during desegregation. It's an absurd and offensive comparison on every level.
Yeah, twitter just clued me in on this and i was just going to come post that. I wasn't sure what it was a rip off of but I was certain it was going to be super insulting when I found out. I was not wrong.

This is probably an bottomless rabbit hole of terribleness.

E: Though I do enjoy these adults depicted and tiny children since that's the way they tend to act.

Also, that cartoon is fucking stupid because he's being led by the "liberal media," etc. which is like, the opposite of what the original was fjlsk ajflksdj fkls;dj flsdaj flsd sorry, blew a fuse trying to rationalize stupid.

I honestly do not get what those two cartoons are trying to say. Not even remotely.

I think my life is overall happier for it.

The only really coherent thought passed forth by these cartoons is that it's more important that these people are unpopular (like the literal fucking children who were attacked for daring to be part of the desegregation movement) than why they are unpopular (i.e., taking away the rights of poorer Americans to have access to good education)

"Betsy DeVos is going to school even though those mean lefties are saying mean things about her (like calling her the c-word (conservative, which is basically the same as a racial slur when you think about it))"

The Rush one is a radical misunderstanding of the original painting and basically just saying that The Liberal Media and the NFL are the True Racists because they won't let plucky lil Rush buy a football team (because the players, many of them black, said they would not play for a racist piece of trash like Rush). I will note that after a lot of people pointed out he misunderstood the painting that he changed the words on the armbands to be more appropriate but I don't really feel like looking up that version.

Also can I just say I'm really glad that if this thread gets locked, it was after I got the chance to post this?

Yeah, after some digging around, I found that it was a spoof on a Norman Rockwell painting about segregation and the civil rights movement (and very big in American culture, but I had never encountered it before, hence my confusion.)

I'm gonna PM Matchstick to lock this thread.

I made this thing to goof on stuff that were absolutely not REAL Politics. Like dumb shit that you would never ever see serious government officials waste a single moment of their time on. Mind Control Airplane Engines and Weather Control arrays and pictures of sweater lint captioned CARBON NANOTUBE ARMOR EXPOSED and so on.

That's uh... not where we're at anymore. Now it's just the nastier version of the stuff I see on my daily google news check. And that bums me out.

If you guys want to make a "Terrible Political Cartoons" thread or a "What the fuck did the Alt Right do today" thread, hey, go nuts. Do not mourn my madhouse of NWO ILLUMINATI BOHEMIAN GROVE MASONS. Let it fall into the gentle arms of sleep, to return when the world is ready for it once again.

In the steaming dogpile that is conservative political cartoons, the McCoys and Lester might just be the most rancid dribbles at the top.

Although Ben Garrison comes close.
