visually descriptive or figurative language, especially in a literary work.
“Tennyson uses imagery to create a lyrical emotion”
“the film’s religious imagery”
visual images collectively.
“the impact of computer-generated imagery on contemporary art”
I tend to think in picture/imagery and that makes the images I post show what I’m thinking. I’ve always thought that way which explains why I love cartoons so much. That’s not to say I don’t love words. I do and always have. But I am fascinated by how few words the images and cartoons below use and still manage to say so much.
The first is to me, the most important. Because I do not, I cannot, understand why every red-blooded American in this country is not shocked, appalled and outraged by these people.
While I make no excuses for the failures and foibles of the GOP, this horror is all liberal and Democrat. Both then and now!
Meanwhile, Possible terror in Fresno … but not if you read the Associated Press
A gunman shot and killed three people in Fresno, California. When the alleged shooter was arrested, he told the police that he hated white people, and shouted something else.
Let the Associated Press tell you.
Get that? He shouted “God is great.” Talk about political correctness run amok. The suspect, Kori Ali Muhammad, allegedly shouted “Allahu Akbar” … which, in the proper translation, means “God is greater or greatest.”
If you just see the AP “tweet” you don’t know the truth. The image is a lie.
I also like the image below. Very much. I admit it plays into my bias. I still like it and think it represents a sad truth. Not that all liberals are hypocrites – just most. And when it comes to politics hypocrisy has a home on both sides of the aisle.
Cartoon images are usually meant to mock a certain issue, person or party. There are some very good ones around about the looneytune in North Korea. This one is my particular favorite, which is not surprising since cartoonist Glenn McCoy is one of my favorite cartoonists.
I am particularly addicted to the wonderful “Liberal Logic – 1o1″images. They say so much and the images help the message stay in your mind. I find the one below one of those that sticks in my mind.
Results from the Alabama Special Election are helped along by the image below. Of course the text that follows help round it out so that you understand the issues better. Still I will never look at Joel Ossoff again without seeing “Pajama Boy” .
WATCH: Democrat Ossoff Says Something NUTS After Failing To Win Congressional Seat In GA-6
“Let me tell you this,” said Jon Ossoff to a rally of his supporters late Tuesday night. “There is no doubt that this is already a victory for the ages. That no matter what the outcome is tonight, whether we take it all, or whether we fight on, we have defied the odds, we have shattered expectations.”
Just for the record, Ossoff had a campaign funded to the tune of $8.3 million, Ossof’s political campaign funding eclipses that of his Republican opponent; Handel raised under $500 thousand. While 95% of Ossoff’s donors are from outside of Georgia, Handel claims that 90% of her donors are in-state.
“A victory for the ages?” I think not. Even for polical hyperbole that’s way over the top.
Liberal Logic 101 images are also very good at explaining the gun issue:
See how simple it really is?
And last but far from least I love the way Liberal Logic 101 skewers the media:
