Political cartoons

Recommended Posts

True dat.

 

Despite being an atheist, I find the following cartoon pretty funny.

 

It's a comic called "Last Kiss". They take old serious comics, clean up the art,  and put new funny words to it.

Another from them, not political:

This isn't exactly a cartoon, but it comes with a story. Back when I was a boy in the 60s, my parents sent me (on Sunday mornings) to learn Yiddish at a Jewish socialist-run school. The group was called "Arbeter Ring" which means Workmen's Circle. I haven't heard about them for years, not being part of Jewish culture. But apparently they still exist, and this is something they've done:

Heh heh.  Those pious evangelicals sure do love them their morally bankrupt example.

 

On another note:

Thomas Kerr cartoon with Trump's head at center of an atom and Kim Jong Un's head orbiting

Oooh, that one's good: Trump as a proton and Kim as an electron in a hydrogen atom.

 

According to this ohio state university website, a proton weighs roughly 1.6727 x 10-24 g and an electron weighsroughly  9.110 x 10-28 g.

So a proton is about 1836 times more massive than an electron, but I think Kim actually weighs more than Trump does.

 

Also while Trump's facial expression is a good rendition, we should see Kim's smiling face as a ruse. 

 

Do I have too much time on my hands? No. But I do have a penchant for trivial details, and the will to look for them.

And a cartoon:

Details and analysis reveal depth in the cartoon.

I thought it worth posting the the above cartoon/work of art,  even though I am not familiar with the isssues.  When I googled the name Samin Surosentiko,  there were numerous articles and YouTube videos, all evidently in the Indonesian language, bahasa indonesia, but you can request a translation to English.

Turning over in their graves? Popping right out to deliver a press conference?

Yeah, the swamp is where Donald lives, works and plays. Below there's another swamp drawing that popped up in Google search.

 

People organize society in order that everyone's lives are better. These Trumplers trumple on those institutions in order that they might have arbitrary personal control, and eventually unfettered power.

 

Elect a Democratic Congress in 2018 !!!

 Not strictly a cartoon;  but could easily have been one if the assertion wasn't actually made to the press recently.

Close enough. There's a word balloon. No-one will prosecute you for it.  ☺️

 

Here's a triumvirate, trio, troika:

Actually, the last cartoon didn't go far enough. I think Trump is being actively used by Russia to wreck the US in multiple ways.

 

More on that as I start to understand it better.

Ha ha ha ha ha.  Right on target.  The first one could become reality very soon:---  "We won with the poorly educated.  I love the poorly educated".

Text cartoon, single frame.

 

Caption, staff person watching says, 'he sure does love to use those clubs'. Image: as staff person watches, trump wildly using golf club to smash presidential seals into shards.

 

Message: he is greatly damaging the office - its prestige, its trust, people's willingness to entrust it with power, that will diminish the office for a long time to come for the next presidents, who will struggle to regain some of those things.

 

It's almost as if by trashing the office trump thinks he's hurting Obama.

One frame, trump walking out of Air Force One, waving a paper; caption, "Denuclearization in our time!" Side comment: 'How you get treated if you DON'T give up your nukes.'
