Cartoon: Highly selective health nuts

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Tue, 26/04/2022 - 9:50pm in

It's easy to laugh at this stuff, but I actually find it more disturbing and sinister than anything. The "alpha male" bro culture of the alt-right ties directly into authoritarian "strongman" rhetoric and the strategically-contrived moral panic about gender that is reflected in the anti-LGBTQ laws sweeping the nation. Put simply, it's fascist, and many in news media don't seem to fully connect the dots or grasp the symbolic power at work here.

Cartoon: Accurate political labels

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Tue, 19/04/2022 - 9:50pm in

I suppose on the surface this could be read as a simple insult comic, but I'm trying to get at a deeper issue. Our entire political discourse has become plagued with right-wing terminology, much of it false, with the intention of demonizing entire classes of people and inciting moral panic.

Cartoon: Is it from Russia or the American Right?

The fact that we are seeing so many anti-LGBTQ bills at the state level in the US is not unrelated to Russia's war on Ukraine. Gay rights have long been used by Putin as an ideological wedge issue to forge a Russian identity in opposition to the "decadent" globalized West. Russia's "gay propaganda" law passed in 2013 casts a wide net around anything that could be remotely perceived as promoting “non-traditional” sexual relationships to minors.

Cartoon: Bad Ukraine takes

This Guardian article provides a synopsis of some of the more ridiculous assertions by Carlson, Bannon, and others. And this is a good explainer on the energy issues at stake (bottom line: renewables pose a threat to Russia through energy independence.)

In case you need a translation for the third panel, Putin is saying "Thanks, fools!"  Though his actual net worth is impossible to know, this Money article lays out the likely range.
