🍃 Weekend Open Thread 🍃

Another weekend. Do you want to talk about something besides politics?

Do you want to talk about politics?

What’s your pleasure?

You know me, I like cartoons just about better than anything so here are few of my favorites.

Joe Heller, of the Green Bay Press-Gazette has this view of Black Friday:

 

The cartoon below, by lefty cartoonist Bill Schorr shows that lefty cartoonists are no more honest than the rest of the lefty media.

Schorr had no problems with both wings on Air Farce One being on the left side did he? Hypocrites even infest the cartoon world. In fact there are far more lefty cartoonists than those on the right. Problem for the left is, the right wing cartoonists are so damn good!

Henry Payne draws his cartoons mostly from the right and is often, usually right. He is relentless in his attacks on lefty hypocrisy. And to be fair he often assaults the right wing too.

Don’t you find it ludicrous when the cast of a Broadway Show with $1000.00 a seat tickets lectures Pence? In fact why do these people, who play pretend and dress up for a living, think they should lecture anyone? Unless it’s some acting technique.

The ever brilliant Michael Ramirez never disappoints.

Rick McKee is cartooning and wit with a bite. I love it!

 

No collection of cartoons is complete without one or two from A.F. Branco. He stopped being in my top 3 favorites when he became a Trumpanzee but he is still, whether I agree with his POV some of the time or not, one of the best. I love it when he skewers media hypocrisy.

Not My President

Isn’t the way he shows Mayor Rahm as such a fool in the cartoon below just brilliant? We are always hearing about how intelligent these leftists are and yet there they are saying or doing something so fundamentally stupid.

Chicago Sanctuary City

 

Maxine never fails us with her acerbic wit. She is always in my top three!

One good Maxine deserves another:

 

And finally, from the sublime to the not so sublime and just in case you’re interested, Fidel Castro is dead. He was 90 years old and much loved by some of America’s stupidest lefties.

I am NOT celebrating his death. I feel that’s wrong. I am, since old Fidel hasn’t had much of an impact recently due to age and ill health mostly not much interested. Still since he has had such an impact on his country for so many years it is only right to note his passing.

I hope he is finding it difficult to explain to his maker the misery and death he has delivered to innocent people over the course of his life.

I am trying, very hard, to come to a place where I can say Rest In Peace. I cannot. God may forgive him, I cannot.

Fidel Castro, Dictator Of Cuba, Dead at 90

 

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and can enjoy the beauty and tranquility of the image below with out thinking about a rake.

    Love all of the cartoons, Marge! Thank you!

    I saw an article this morning from The Right Scoop abt that idiot, Colin Kapernick, defending Castro to a sportswriter who was born in HAVANA and who defected here with his family. Well, with just his mother first since a Cuban soldier decided as the family of three were abt to board the plane that only two could go. The father stayed behind, and eventually got to the USA: http://therightscoop.com/sports-writer-destroys-kaepernick-defending-fidel-castro/

    Apparently, Cuban Americans are delighted at the news: http://therightscoop.com/cuban-americans-danced-celebrated-news-fidels-death-streets-miami/

    Castro leaves a long, long legacy of brutality, poverty, and oppression, a mantle taken up by his brother. That said, your handling of Castro’s death is seemly and appropriate. Thank you!

      Good Morning Amy! How’s the vacation going? Enjoying the warmth and the relaxation?

      I saw that article about Kaepernick. What a fool he is. He was one of the idiots I had in mind when mentioning leftists who love Castro. If ignorance is bliss there are many on the left that should be very happy. Instead they are mad all the time. And that’s whether they win or lost.

      Like the cast of “Hamilton”.

    How Journalism Turns Into Propaganda

    Real journalism is dangerous for elites, which is why we have so little of it.

    It’s high time we analyze more closely the relationship between the media and power elites. To do that, we need to look at how and why elites conscript journalists, and why journalists can’t resist the bait. The enticements come as access, privilege, prestige, fame, influence, and very high salaries for those in the limelight.

    Large parts of our civil society have succumbed to that base but instinctive drive in people to lord it over others. That drive, as always, motivates those who tend to seek the reins of power. History is filled with unsavory characters determined to reset the universe so it revolves around them.

    Here’s how liberals regard religion in one perfect cartoon IMO.

    Obama and Trump Have Reacted Differently to Castro’s Death

    In a statement issued hours after Catro’s death, Trump labeled the Cuban Communist as a brutal dictator.

    “The world marks the passing of a brutal dictator who oppressed his own people for nearly six decades. Fidel Castro’s legacy is one of firing squads, theft, unimaginable suffering, poverty and the denial of fundamental human rights,” Trump said.

    Obama, on the other hand, was more sympathetic to the Cuban leader. “Fidel Castro altered the course of individual lives, families, and of the Cuban nation. History will record and judge the enormous impact of this singular figure on the people and world around him,” he said in a White House statement.

    If you like playing Ben Shapiro’s “good Trump/bad Trump” game this was very good Trump.

    It was also very bad Obama. Another reason people in this country are sick and tired of Obama and the left.

    I have no doubt this is the way some of our ignorant, and determined to stay that way, young people think of the Garden Of Eden.

    That would also apply to Cadillac Catholics who use their religion but do little or nothing to follow it. Examples that pop into my mind are Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden. NO ONE can be pro-choice and Catholic. They are like oil and water – they just don’t mix. Oops, I didn’t mean to preach a sermon just as I’m about to head out to hear one.
