I am, as has been stated many, many times elsewhere, personally a hard-liner on the First Amendment. Nazis do, unfortunately, have the same right to speech and assembly as everyone else, and that is as it should be. It is, as the saying goes, the high price of freedom — because any effort to legally stifle hate speech will inevitably be exploited to harm the people it seeks to protect.

However, there is a time and a place to argue for free speech. If you are the ACLU, maybe that time is “always.” If, however, you are a decent human being seeking to engage with other human beings on the Internet, the time to argue for free speech may not be the immediate aftermath of a Nazi rally that killed three people. Sometimes it’s good to say “Yeah, Nazis are bad.”

You may not sound like the greatest intellectual in the room, but you will also avoid sounding like a complete asshole.

Cartoon: The Democratic Resistance

January 25, 2017 Comics Comments (0) 723

Ken Klansman is actually the LEAST offensive of Trump's nominees.I won’t have time in the next couple of days to do a proper cartoon, so I had to do this one in a hurry on Post-It notes. The Democrats are doing a great job “resisting” Trump’s agenda by confirming all his cabinet appointees.

Oh and I guess it’s not 2016 any more. Oops. I guess in between panel one and panel four I lost track of the year.

This is really more of a sketch than a proper cartoon. Like many people I’m sad that Hillary has to live in the woods now–but I’m hoping to one day have my own Hillary sighting.

I haven’t heard too many people cite Godwin since the Trump campaign, which ticked most of the fascist boxes. The “victory tour” and his intention to continue holding rallies certainly doesn’t help. But once in a while, someone does still make this argument.

I heard someone recently say it was “too early” to compare Trump to Hitler, which is a funny phrasing. It implies we’ll get there eventually–but I guess we need to wait for genocide? Or maybe just the invasion of France.
