For help on how to follow a comic title,
really? a red underline on top of a rotated picture of the declaration of independence?
every commenter here has put in more effort.
Well look at that, Gorrell drew a gavel(or altered a photo of one enough that it doesn’t look exactly like a google image search result)
Even with an actual drawing, no effort was put into the writing of this cartoon. All it’s saying is Chief Justice Roberts ruled in a way Gorrell considers to the left of the political spectrum. That’s it, just illustrating the headline. No legal reasoning here to defend his position, just “the justice didn’t rule the way I wanted him to”
Gorrell is pro-life.
how pro life is he?
so pro-life that he’s okay with Trump’s handling of the Coronavirus that has killed 130,000+ people so far.
so pro-life that he cares more about statues being vandalized than Black Americans being murdered by the police
so pro-life that he’s silent on the news that Trump ignored the Russians offering bounties to kill American soldiers
so pro-life that he’s okay with children seeking asylum being ripped away from their families and kept in horrible conditions (even going so far as to compare these children to the national debt:
so pro-life that he cares more about the 2nd amendment than children killed in mass shootings
so pro-life that he supports a party and president who want to repeal the ACA in the middle of a pandemic
so pro-life that he’d like to force people to risk their lives to vote in person during a pandemic
Alright cartoon number 2 after the 2 week vacation. Surely today Gorrell will draw something new. What’s this? Why it’s the same Uncle Sam as:
I don’t understand what news item this cartoon is referencing.
The silent majority is all of us who no longer bother arguing with our friends and family on the right who cling to their FOXNews talking points.
Oh look, after 2 weeks off, Bob Gorrell has a new cartoon. He must be rested and ready to dra.. oh what’s this? A photo of the constitution with some words on it? Not even a drawing of a protester with a can of spray paint?
Oh won’t somebody please think of the statues! it says it right there in the constitution “we the statues of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union….”
I dunno, maybe it’s just me, but murdering someone seems like a much worse crime than spray painting a statue.
This is the same guy with hands in his pockets from:
only stretched to make him thinner. and in the previous cartoon he was a MAGA hat wearing guy.
And yeah you get to be judged if you are still supporting Trump at this point, and if after all the videos of police attacking peaceful protesters you still think it’s just a few bad apples.
who is judging based on the color of their skin? We’re judging based on the murder that was caught on camera.
Gorrell managed to draw a paint brush before:
if it’s just a few bad apples, then why does it keep happening over and over?
And the issue isn’t that there are some bad apples, it’s that the system has failed to hold them accountable.
This cartoon might have worked on some people BEFORE the protests began, but now everyone has seen police beating peaceful protesters.
Trump’s tie as a graph has been done before
at least this time he copy/pasted a different Trump:
editorial cartoons are supposed to offer opinion or insight. “Trump’s poll numbers are down” is something people can read in a push notification, and it allows you to avoid having to explain how you can still support Trump at this point.
You’ve done it! You’ve solved 400 years of racism! the police will see this image of hand doing a peace sign and they will stop tear gassing and beating peaceful protesters and they will no longer use excessive force. /extreme sarcasm
Another example of “can’t we all just get along, I can’t really defend my side, so I’ll say both sides are doing bad things, both sides.”
You have a platform that you could use to call for change, to call for police accountability, or for demilitarizing the police, or for police to stop beating and tear gassing peaceful protesters but instead you use it to draw over a Getty photo of a hand.
is the hand supposed to be half black or is it bad photoshop?
A photo with some text on it is just a meme.
While not whining about “political correctness” this time, Gorrell isn’t saying anything with this, it only points out that the statue of Robert E. Lee will CHANGE from being there to not being there.
Not the first time Gorrell has done an empty statue base:
This is not the first time Gorrell has done the “completely blank” cartoon:
empty black panel:
Unless you’re going to use the next cartoon to call for him to resign, this is on you and the rest of the GOP. Even here, you are not directly saying that Trump is the one that lacks leadership. You are trying to shift blame to EVERYONE.
Are right wing news outlets really that desperate for content that they would pay for this?
