Red hat… just sayin’
The cartoonist assumes that youth believes everything he sees and hears.
Magats don’t control the garbage on the internet, mTV, etc.Garbage in = Garbage out.
Good ‘toon, Mr. Ramirez, but you seem to have left out Tucker Carlson and the rest of the Fox News programming. I guess there’s only so much space….
Not limited to the youth. Read some of the comments left on here. Those aren’t kids. Those are grown adults posting about CRT and race replacement.
An interesting profile:
Conspiracy theorists typically:
◘ tend to have a little less education.
◘ more often live in societies that have less successful democracies, which influences trust in others and in the authorities.
◘ belong to groups that feel they should have more power and influence.
◘ belong to special political organizations or religious groups a little more often.
◘ more often use intuition – their “gut feeling” – when making decisions.
◘ see connections more often than most people do, also where such connections do not exist, and they are more likely to see intention as the cause of events.
◘ are a little more narcissistic and paranoid than others.
◘ more often obtain their information from social media.
I wonder if Michael is aware that he has drawn himself.
The crap stops here…between the ears of gop
For too many people today, doing “research” consists of reviewing the garbage fed them by the algorithms intended to generate profit through views. When all you see is stuff the all knowing internet has decided you already agree with, deciding whats true becomes difficult if not impossible.
I’m pretty sure I can find research that says anything. I think that is the point.
I tried to instruct students about the crap that could pop up on the Internet including “social media”. Unfortunately, some had already been “turned” by their parents. If a student would say “my dad” “my mom” or any other relative, I would stop, hoping they’d learn the truth at college.
The more people believe in conspiracy theories, the worse they perform on critical thinking tests, a new study has confirmed.This doesn’t mean that conspiracy theorists are necessarily lacking intelligence, but rather that they lack the skills to objectively analyze and evaluate a situation. -
I think you hit the nail on the head today Michael
I’ve always maintained that the worst things to ever happen to the world in recent years have been social media and the creation of 24/7 cable news networks.
Youth is dropping out of right wing churches and not voting republican.
His shirt and hat should be purple.
Have to agree with this, except I think Ramirez needs to look into a mirror, as he forgets the mass murderer in Buffalo is likely one of his fans, or at the least has had some of MR’s stuff shared with him. He is not mentally ill, he has been radicalized by the Republican Party and far right media. Tucker Carlson is (was, assuming he’s not allowed to watch FOX in prison) one of his favorite sources of what he should hate.
How the hell did Ramirez get something right ?
Youth? No, not just youth, don’t delude yourself.
Excellent cartoon expressing an unfortunate but very real problem, regardless of political leanings!
This indeed appears to be the dangerous right wing extremist plan for grooming of youth via alternative truth MAGA propaganda. Thanks for the reveal.
I’ll bet his hat has MAGA (or something to that effect) on it
And to all of the commenters above: Opinions are like asshol-s : Everybody’s got one and they all stink.
This little lefty just needs some face tattoos he doesn’t have a neck or he could get ACAB inked across it.
Where is the line marked Ftucker Carlson?
…………not to mention our youts being “groomed” by right wing political cartoon porn.
Now let’s diligently work on ridding our school libraries of any books the deal with today’s social issues. Let’s demand teachers make no mention of current events and teach only sanitized history. Sadly we need look no further than our local school boards and state legislatures and . . .yes . . .we the voters to find the root causes of that pipeline flow.
The guy who makes up the QAnon stuff is not young. He does, however, still live in his mother’s basement. (and assumes that pizza parlors all have basements)
as durak noted above, all you have to do is read the comments from our local trolls to understand the web’s pernicious influence…
All the shooters are young brainwashed right wing idealist terrorists.
