I would like to think this is a satire of wingnut racism and sexism, but alas:

Darleen Click must be upset that she didn’t think of this first…

In related news, I couldn’t resist watching the Hannity re-run, on which Ben Shapiro and some other very dumb person opened up Al Capone’s vault. Derrick Bell was so radical that he believed that there was still racism in America!!!!!!!!!!!

…Mr. Ther Sites, if that is his real name, notes that Zandar spotted this.

    Considering the source that would be a NOPE!

  • So… why do political cartoons still exist?

    • Murc

      You shut up. Tom Tommorrow is a national treasure.

      • thebewilderness

        They used to be for afflicting the comfortable, but that was before women got all uppity and a black man got elected Preznit.

        • DrDick

          This is hardly new. I have a whole series of racially/ethnically charged cartoons for the 19th and early 20th century that I use in my race and ethnicity class. Thomas Nast was pretty comfortable afflicting ethnic minorities, like the Chines and Irish.

          • Lee

            This. Its pretty easy to find examples of conservative or reactionary political cartoons since the beggining of political cartooning. People like to think that comedy is the refuge of the weak against the strong but bullies are pretty adapt at their own aggressive form of humor that targets the weak.

          • joe from Lowell

            Doctor, have you ever come across Dr. Seuss Goes to War?

            • DrDick

              Can’t say that I have, though given the general tone of war propaganda at the time, I suspect it was pretty racist stuff. I am particularly fond of using the anti-Irish cartoons (from both the US and GB) in conjunction with those depicting Chinese, Native Americans, and African Americans, given my largely white students. Particularly effective given a large number of Butte Irish in the mix.

              • Lee

                Dr. Seuss’s anti-Japanese cartoons are some of the nastiest and racist cartoons I’ve ever seen.

                Thomas Nast is an interesting case. His anti-Irish cartoons are rather bigoted. However, a lot of this is because he saw them as a key component of the Democratic Party and responsible for various outrages against African-Americans. This is made very clear in his cartoon “This is a White Man’s government”, where the audience is clearly supposed to identify with the black man in Union uniform being trampled by August Belmont, a Confederate, and an Irish man.

                His Chinese cartoons depict the Chinese in a stereotypical manner but Nast is on the side of the Chinese immgirants rather than those that want them excluded. In one Columbia, who symbolized America at the time before Lady Liberty, is protected a Chinese man from a white mob. In another, a Chinese man is complaining about white hypocrisy to a Native American.

                Nast was rather modern in his views on racial equality for the most part. His anti-Irish beliefs were a result of his hatred of them as part of the Democratic Party and because of his strident anti-Catholicism.

      • Warren Terra

        Also Ruben Bolling and Keith Knight (who aren’t consistently poltical) and often Tom Toles.
        Not to mention any number of non-political or apolitical cartoonists, some of whom make valuable social commentary even as they eschew politics.

      • Rarely Posts

        Also, as any Baltimore native could tell you, Kevin “KAL” Kallaugher.

  • Murc

    There may have been nothing in Al Capone’s vault, but it wasn’t Ben Shapiro’s fault.

  • TT

    What, no crack pipe? When wingnuts go all-in on the racist, misogynist, hate-filled a-hole SOB straight flush, can we at least expect them to not overlook the most important details?

    • Anonymous

  • Hob

    Oh sweet Jesus, that cartoon. W. T. F.

    I wasn’t really surprised that some wingnuts would fail to understand what birth control is. I AM surprised that a wingnut would fail to understand what prostitution is. Hint: she wouldn’t be doing it recreationally, asshole.

    • Warren Terra

      Sez you. In their conception of Those People, the sinners enjoy their godless and debased lifestyle. It’s one of the things they resent about The Others they imagine.

      • TT

        Yep. I think Giuseppe Zaluchi was speaking for damn near all conservatives when he said “They’re animals anyway, so let them lose their souls”.

      • .

        cons believe choirboys enjoy “it” so much that they’ll prostitute for no money.

    • Anderson

      If fat-ass Repubs didn’t think the hookers enjoyed it, they might feel twinges of guilt about fucking them.

      • DrDick

        Nope. That would require that they care about anyone other than themselves.

  • bph

    You mean that is not suppose to be James O’Keefe?

  • Well, this is it. There is literally no tonal difference between this and the insane white-supremacist-fever-dream cartoons you see if you are foolish enough to visit places like stormfront. In addition to everything else, the right’s sheer, unrelenting, ever-escalating vileness is just so, so tiring. I just want to plaintively ask: can’t you stop? Can’t you have one single solitary moment of self-awareness and realize what you’re doing; what you’ve made yourself into? But…no.

    How do they not just get exhausted? I have to figure that this level of violent, irrational hatred requires way more effort than being a minimally decent human being. And yet, to all appearances, they can’t stop and, I dare say, won’t stop. Augh.

  • Jay B.

    Peak wingnut isn’t that there will be no more wingnut, it’s that wingnut has reached its apex and that all future wingnut will be diminishing in influence and currency. I’ve said elsewhere that this surreal, completely ignorant attack on a Georgetown student represents peak wingnut. There’s not a bit of it that makes any basic sense and they continue to double down on it. All in the sevice to defend the indefensible and alienate even the remnants of the 35 to 27 percent who rationalized previous behaviors away. This cartoon buttresses my thesis, not stands in opposition to it.

  • R Johnston

    The difference between a Republican and a member of the BNP is which side of the pond they live on.

  • Walt

    Is that really supposed to be Obama? How can we tell? The ears?

    • Nigel

      Look at the belt buckle.

      • Walt

        Okay, that’s pretty unambiguous.

        That is a shitty caricature, though. It looks like it was drawn by someone who’s never seen Obama, but was given a verbal description that he was skinny, and had big ears. I can’t even really tell that he’s supposed to be black. Flake, on the other hand, looks like she’s supposed to be Japanese, or something.

        • joe from Lowell

          That depiction would be easily recognizable as Obama to someone who had seen a lot of racist caricatures of Obama.

          • joe from Lowell

            That is to say, there is now a genre of racist Obama caricatures, with its own recognizable customs and references.

          • Ben

            Eh. There are a whollllllllle bunch of Bush cartoons where he looks like some kind of thin bug-eyed weasel with big ears*.

            I’m not saying those cartoons were bad, and I’m not saying this one is good. Just saying that I don’t think Obama’s caricatured face is per se racist, or any different from the past conventions of 30 years of political cartoons.

            Unless there’s some racist trope I’m missing, which could be, but I don’t really see one. I mean, the pimp costume, obviously, but y’all seem to be talking about faces.

            *Kinda different, though, because the Obama face is a caricature *zing*

            • Hob

              “Unless there’s some racist trope I’m missing, which could be, but I don’t really see one. I mean, the pimp costume, obviously, but y’all seem to be talking about faces.”

              I don’t know who this “y’all” is that you’re talking to. There are two different points here. 1. This is obviously supposed to be Obama because of the big ears and the belt buckle, but isn’t in any other way a good likeness. 2. Depicting Obama as a pimp, in a 1970s blaxploitation style, is the kind of thing racists think is clever and really makes no goddamn sense otherwise.

  • c u n d gulag

    I don’t see an end to peak wingnut.
    At least not until he’s Former President, Obama.

    And then, no peak if Democrats nominate a woman or Hispanic.

    Every time you think that dial can’t go any higher than 10, they scratch in an 11. Then a 12. 13… Etc…

    I think that, unlike the DOW or NYSE, 30,000 is a reasonable goal for wingnuts.

    I predict that after the Republican National Convention, when they start to really panic, the work “Nigra” will be fairly commonly used, and “N*GGER!” not at all unheard of.

    C’mon Conservative boys and girls – say it!
    You know you want to!!
    You’ll feel better!!!

            The Rome News-Tribune is circulated in my town, and that publishing company puts out several local newspapers here in GA, including my current residence.

            I don’t know if the editor really pays attention to emails, but they will be getting another one for this.

            • Hogan

              This one doesn’t appear on the RN-T website; apparently it went out in syndication. Zandar’s link is to gocomics.com. Maybe the editor does draw the line somewhere.

  • TN

    Maybe someone needs to explain this to me real slow, but even if Sandra Fluke was a slutty slut slut, in what sense are “we” paying for her contraceptives? I don’t get how I’m involved in that financial transaction at all, and no conservatives seem interested in telling me.

    • BradP

      Presumably her employers will be forced to pay for at least a portion of it.

      • Julian

        So what?

      • Taj Mahalo

        If her insurance is covering contraception, it’s not her employer or anyone else paying for it. It’s her. Her insurance coverage is part of her compensation for the work she does for her employer. It’s none of her employer’s business what she does with her pay, and that ought to include whatever her insurance covers.

        To the extent that the costs of health care affect the insurance premiums that everyone pays, those costs are much lower for contraception than they are for abortion or childbirth (without even getting into the cost of healthcare for kids). So really, even if you make the invalid assumption that contraception is taken merely to allow women to have consequence-free sex, your premiums are lower if contraception is covered than they would be if it weren’t, because without contraception many more women would have to undergo much more expensive procedures, the cost of which probably would be passed on to other people in the form of increased insurance premiums.

        • thebewilderness

          She is a student. She pays $1800 a year to cover mens health care needs and some of her own. Women think they should get what they pay for when they buy health care coverage rather than what men think they deserve.

          • DrDick

            What a novel concept. Funny how the conservative notion of free markets never applies to women’s choices.

      • Presumably her employers will be forced to pay for at least a portion of it.

        You know, I’m one of the people who reviews, on an annual basis, what insurance we will offer employees. Every year, an insurance broker presents us with a range of options from which we will choose, usually anywhere from 6-8 different plans.

        You know what has never come up as a way to save money, not even once? Failing to cover contraception.

        Now, maybe that is because I live and work in the socialist hellhole of Soviet Massachusettstan. But in the seven years I’ve done this, I have never heard a single person say “you can save money by not offering contraception coverage.” And they have said a lot of things, some of them rather awful, that would let us save money. But never that.

        • BradP

          I don’t know enough of all of this to know what responsibilities the employers will have.

          I could really care less if the government forced the catholic church to start putting a statue Virgin Mary that dispensed condoms like a pez despenser in the bathrooms of their churches and other facilities.

          They are more than happy to use favorable legal schemes and tax breaks to put resources behind other avenues of government force that I strongly disagree with.

          I would be supportive of the Catholic Church if this really seemed like a matter of conscience, but I’d have to believe that it had a conscience first.

          • I could really care less if the government forced the catholic church to start putting a statue Virgin Mary that dispensed condoms like a pez despenser in the bathrooms of their churches and other facilities.

            You know, there probably is a market for a statue like this.

            • BradP

              If you build it, they will come.

              …I’m sorry.

              • DrDick

                I’m not. ;-)

            But remember, since Robert Bork never personally kidnapped a pregnant woman and performed an unwanted abortion behind a VCR repair shop, it was extremely unfair of Ted Kennedy to say that Bork’s legal vision would “force women to have back-alley abortions.” It’s important to be very precise with language at all times.

          • NBarnes

            Let’s be fair; sucking at the public teat while claiming to be on a mission from God has been the Catholic Church’s business model for so long, it’s hard to expect them to change now.

      • DrDick

        Which is simply part of her compensation, as is all insurance coverage provided by her employer. If they cover a clearly recreational drug like Viagra, covering this clearly preventative medicine is a no brainer (it also saves both the employer and the insurer money).

          I don’t disagree with any of this. All very true.

          In theory its a bit of a grey area for me. I could see other organizations or companies having a legitimate greivance along these lines. The employer-based health insurance model is the standard, and as such people are reliant on it. On the other hand, it is still administered and provided by the employer, and if there is a moral conflict there, I think they should have the right to refuse.

          But the Catholic Church and those gnashing over this are generally unsympathetic and completely full of shit (your point about Viagra). It makes this one easy, even for the muddled libertarian.

          • Bill Murray

            wouldn’t the status of the employer as a natural person matter? Corporations can not have morals, so there can be no moral conflict. Partnerships and sole proprietor-ships would be different as those are natural people

            • BradP

              Corporations can not have morals, so there can be no moral conflict.

              This is not necessarily true, corporations still have owners who can expect the corporation to behave and promote certain moral codes. Chick Fil A is an example of that.

              I will admit, however, that we have really jumped off the rails as far as how we treat and protect corporations.

              • That is an interesting case. I’d argue that Chick Fil A can only operate the way it does because it is privately held. A publicly traded company theoretically has only one “moral obligation” – to maximize shareholder value. Were Chick Fil A publicly traded, a group of minority shareholders who sued over the Sunday closing policy would almost certainly prevail.

                Noting that this makes publicly traded companies the equivalent of a sociopath is not mentioned in polite company.

                • BradP

                  It is interesting, and I really hadn’t thought about that.

                  A publicly traded company theoretically has only one “moral obligation” – to maximize shareholder value. Were Chick Fil A publicly traded, a group of minority shareholders who sued over the Sunday closing policy would almost certainly prevail.

                  I have to say that, if this is truly the case, I would strongly disagree with that.

                  Shareholder values go beyond dollars and cents. If a majority of Wal-Mart stockholders developed a social conscience, then that should be respected over the bottom line.

          • IM

            Healt insurance is part of compensation. Should employers have the right to unilaterally determine that? I don’t think so.

            • BradP

              I agree with you. That’s why I said it was a gray area for me.

              I would like to see a right to refusal for employers, but we have a health insurance system where a great deal of people are reliant on their employer’s insurance pool.

    • mark f

      I think the argument is supposed to be that at some level some health insurance is subsidized by the government & taxes, therefore “we” as taxpayers pay for it. I think some folks belabor under the notion that employer-provided insurance is also “free”; I love it when, every other Friday, my employer gives me free money! My boss must be one heck of a guy.

      *I can understand how certain memes become reinforced and accepted in the conservative echo chamber just due to the lack of familiarity a lot of people have with the topic (“partial birth abortion,” “Obama always votes ‘present'” etc) but this isn’t one of them. A huge number of people get their health insurance through work, and (even aside from the tradeoffs with other compensation) most involve not insignificant out-of-pocket costs. Who do they think is getting “free” insurance? I mean, besides all the illegal immigrants.

      • Taj Mahalo

        It’s true that the money taken out of an employee’s paycheck to cover health insurance isn’t taxed. However, that benefits the employer and the employee. Our tax dollars don’t go to providing insurance coverage to employed people.

        Medicare and Medicaid are, of course, a different matter (as is the health coverage provided to soldiers through the VA). As far as I can tell, though, this whole controversy is about whether private employer-provided (that is, not tax-subsidized but tax-exempt) health insurance ought to cover contraception as a basic women’s health matter. My guess is because the government is telling insurers (and by extension employers) that they have to provide this coverage, people are confusing that with the government actually providing the coverage.

        Or they could just be lying about it for political gain. Either way, really.

        • Anonymous

          If a company is providing compensation to their employee that neither has to pay taxes on, that is subsidized by the government.

    Outrage is reserved only for Conservatives.

    I saw no outrage when Bill Mahr called Sarah Palin a “Dumb Twat” or when he called her a “Cunt”. This apparently seems to be an OK way to speak about woment since Mr. Mahr is not a conservative.

    I think America has “Liberal Double-Standard Fatigue” or better known simply as LDF.

    We’ve seen LDF in the charges of racism, hate-speech and recently in misogyny. People are not as dumb as Democrats think they are. They see it all.

    And now I’ll wait for some poor schmuck to try to make up some new rule about how Mahr’s comments were completely different than Rush’s and that there really is no double standard.

    This should be interesting….

    • Cool story.

      • Uncle Kvetch

          It’s the pseudonym of a left-wing version of libertarianesque misogynist Bill Maher, retooled to better line up with the left side of the default political spectrum. See also Chris Maffews, noted liberal.

          • mds

            Meanwhile, on a completely unrelated note, I’d like to join with Amanda Marcotte and other feminist bloggers in the latest in their long line of criticisms of Bill Maher, this time for taking Rush Limbaugh’s side in the Fluke matter, like the dedicated left-winger he isn’t.

      Dishonorable Boob,
      You saw/see no outrage, because you’re too stupid, or too blind, to see it.
      Liberals all get on other Liberals all of the time when they say/do something stupid.
      A lot of Liberals got on Bill Mahr (sic) – not for making fun of Sarah Palin, but for the language he used in doing so.

      Oh, and Mahr (sic) isn’t really a Liberal. He’s more of a Libertarian with a some Liberal principles.

      As for your new term, “LDF” – I think you’re really describing yourself – a Lumbering, Dumb F*ck.

      • I’m a bill maher fan. I watch his show. He’s liberal. He also says foolish, assholish things sometimes. And it doesn’t bother me when people call him on it.

        I’m not wild about gendered insults and try to be consistent about showing my disapproval of them. I think most liberals do that, too. Which is why BOTHSIDESDOIT arguments make me want to throw my computer out the window in frustration.

    • BradP

      This should be interesting….

      Well here you go: Maher’s was a personal attack against Palin.

      Limbaugh and this cartoon launched a pretty nasty attack on millions of women who share that lifestyle. My wife is on birth control that is partially paid for by my employer’s insurance. The implication that she is a slut for it is infuriating to me.

      I don’t want to speak for women, and maybe its a little sexist on my own part to say this, but Limbaugh deserves a punch from husbands all over the country.

      Also, pointing out that Bill Maher is also an asshole doesn’t make you look like less of an asshole.

    • TN

      I very much hope that some brave truth-teller from Fox News asks Obama at his next press conference whether he agrees with non-Republican Bill Maher that Sarah Palin is a “dumb twat.” Maybe he’d go with the Romney: “It’s not the language I would have used.” Or maybe the Santorum: “He’s being absurd, and, you know, entertainers can be absurd.” Or the Gingrich: “Playing political games is irrelevant as far as I’m concerned.”

      Or maybe he’d tell the truth: “Hell, yes, I think she’s a dumb twat. Bill Ayers and I were just talking about the other day; he wants to use that phrase to describe her in ‘my’ next book.”

      • Uncle Kvetch

    • Halloween Jack (AKA Some Poor Schmuck)

      Well, aside from Maher a) not being a liberal and b) being criticized on countless occasions for his misogyny (it was even noted in a MadTV sketch several years ago), he’s got a fraction of Limbaugh’s audience, plus of course calling someone an insulting name isn’t nearly in the league of going on for some time about someone’s personal life. If Maher had attempted to deliver a misogynistic rant that was a significant fraction of either the length or vindictiveness of Limbaugh’s, he’d be selling used cars in Boise. As it is, the worst thing that I’m aware of Maher doing is encouraging Christine O’Donnell’s delusions of adequacy, and that’s bad enough.

      But thanks for playing! When you put them over the plate so slow and easy, it makes all of us feel like Babe Ruth when we knock one into the bleachers. Sure, you’re just another in a long line of feckless, non-creative wingnuts who have stopped by the comments section, but that doesn’t mean that we don’t appreciate you.

      Would that be Bill Maher whose show was cancelled when he dared to suggest that a suicide bombing was not an act of cowardice?

      Please let me know when Rush’s show is cancelled over anything that he says. Thank you.

    • DrDick

      I actually have seen lots of liberal attacks on Maher for that and there are a lot of us who think he is just an asshole who occasionally says something reasonable. I for one never watch him and never have.

    • thebewilderness

      Well Bob, if you were not an asshat you would have seen it.
      Women have been objecting to this kind of abuse for hundreds of years.
      Again and again and again. It is downright insulting for the willfully ignorant like yourself to claim that you do not see what is right in front of your face.

    Anyone else think the “Ms.” on the name plate was meant to be a telling detail? Just incredible.

    • Hob

      I honestly can’t tell which kind of assholery was intended. It could be “Ms. = bra-burning feminazi”, or it could be “See, I’m calling her ‘Ms.’ so I’m being respectful! Heh heh.”

      Similarly, I can’t tell if the caricature of Obama is so strained because the cartoonist can’t draw, or because he’s trying to keep the smallest possible bit of deniability because he knows this is just vile and racist as shit. But I’m kind of leaning toward the latter, otherwise he probably would’ve colored him a little darker or put a caption on him. I mean, there’s no way it’s not supposed to be Obama, given the belt buckle logo and the fact that big ears aren’t part of any pimp stereotype, but this way he can get a chuckle out of imagining how he’d tell some pissed-off liberal “Ohhh no that’s not supposed to be the President, see I didn’t even draw him black. You’re the real racist!” You have to be six years old to understand.

        Judging from his online archive*, it’s a little from Column A and a little from Column B.

        • The water glass near the Fluke character also looks like a penis.

          • joe from Lowell

            I can’t decide if the cartoonist tried to make Fluke look Asian, or he’s just a terrible, terrible artist.

            Look at the drawing. Ms. Fluke has wide eyes, and a strong jaw and chin.

  • Halloween Jack

    Wonder what Chris Muir has to say about this?

    Oh, dear. I… guess that the redhead is afraid that Sandra Fluke is coming after her man? Or something? (Also, Bill Maher takes his cues directly from Obama.)

      Also, Bill Maher takes his cues directly from Obama

      The best part about this cartoon is that Maher is surprised by both being called by and taking requests from the president. Obama even acknowledges the unusual nature of the whole conversation. It defeats the purpose of the entire gag, but Muir was either too stupid or too lazy to rewrite it so the commentary — I can’t call it a joke — would make sense.

        Don’t you just love it when Conservatives try to use humor?

        They’re so… so… so… cute… no, that’s not the word – awful, that’s the word I was looking for, they’re so AWFUL when they try!

        They really, really, suck at being funny.

        All they can come up with, is putting other people down.
        Usually, something racist, misogynistic, xenophobic, or homophobic.

        Like when they send some god-awful, completely unfunny e-mail, and, after they’re caught, claim it was just a joke!

        And then they say WE’RE the ones without a funny-bone, because we don’t think depicting the President and First Lady as cannibals, with bones through their noses, seen seen cooking white people in a giant pot, with some fried chicken on the side, and watermelon as dessert, is funny.
        “IT’S JUST A JOKE!
        Ah, you’ve got no sense of humor!”

        It’s a well established fact that Conservatives suffer from an ‘irony deficiency.’

        • Njorl

          I was surprised. It was a very good attempt at humor for a Republican. I could recognize the structure of a joke in it. It looked like he was at least trying (and failing) to achieve humor, rather than derisive hatred, which is what most Republicans think of as humor.

          • Njorl

            Above in reference to Muir cartoon about Maher, not the main thread racist drawing.

      • DrDick

        Stupid, lazy, and crazy, pretty much defines Muir.

    • Scott Lemieux

      Chris Muir — as unfunny as Mallard Fillmore, but more pretentious!

      • DrDick

        Ouch! That left a mark.

      • And, amazing, more poorly drawn.

  • Lee

    This cartoon surpasses Poe’s Law.

    • Davis X. Machina

      It’s not a law, more like a loose set of guidelines

  • timb

    Wasn’t Rome, Georgia, the former home and nuturing, warm place of Robert Stacy McCain? What is it with that place?

    It’s the Athens, Georgia of racists. Seriosuly, this guy is clearly second fiddle to McCain’s much more polished racism. He’s the Georgia Satellites to McCain’s REM

    Looks like NAMI job program for cartoonists could use a little tweaking.
