Political Funnies

This article amused me so much I had to share. I thought it would be good to have a place to collect political cartoons and spoofs, articles or videos.

Here's my offering. My first thought was that they look oddly good looking for men I don't recall as being particularly handsome. The analysis is priceless.

There are no politics in Canada except the above. Go to any social media it is the same. The ubiquitous Orange Herring is all Canadians talk about.

I've seen funny Canadian cartoons. I just stumbled on the painting and laughed outloud when I read the article. This is for international and Canadian political funnies.

Yes some how serendipitously you just "stumbled" on the painting. My guess is it came in a social media feed from one of the dozens of propaganda feeds from the Democratic wing of the US oligarchy. The US domination of our culture has been a part of my life always but with the internet it has become even worse.

I know, I know its late to lament for a nation.

I read the guardian international news deliberately. I like art. The painting caught my eye. As I looked at it I realized it was various presidents but they all looked unusually good. So I started reading the article which confirmed my suspicion and filled in details I didn't look long enough to pick up. I think the artist is absolutely brilliant. Apparently Trump loves it but to my eye the artist is mocking him. All laughter aside this is a historic work. It's hanging in the White House.

I had always assumed that the "international news and politics" forum was exempt from CanCon rules.

I'm pretty sure that if someone had posted a Green Party USA cartoon attacking the Democrats and Republicans as two branches of the same oligarchy, Kropotkin would not be on here bewailing the meme as American cultural domination, even though the Green Party USA is no less American than any other political party headquartered in that country.

i know what you’re getting at but I’m either projecting on you or you’re not expressing yourself right?

the thread is in the appropriate heading, but to me it appears to be another “let’s rant about Trump” or “let’s poke fun at Trumps appearance” thread. For some reason, mocking someone’s appearances has now become acceptable behaviour amongst so called progressives. 

I started a thread here about Xi JinPing. A wildly successful progressive with the most impressive resume. You’d think that’s what progressives would want to talk about hey? Socialist success stories. But nope, straight back to Trump!

Rabble is turning out to be a real disappointment

There are many serious topics on babble even if yours didn't pick up interest right away. The first pipeline threads didn't either. At one point I posted that even though no one was responding I was reading. They eventually became among the most active threads. 

This thread is just to lighten things up a bit. 

The first post happened to be about Trump because that particular article hit my funny bone. It doesn't make it a thread about Trump. 

Portraying Trudeau as Pinnochio is 1,000 words in a picture.  Big money and US corporate power is hiding behind the innocent looking Trudeau whose strings are being pulled by them. It portrays Trudeau as a front man. 

Even though I thought to lighten things up a bit political cartooning it is still important political speech just as political music is.

On Tuesday, an image of one of the bins blew up on Reddit with the caption “Pearson International installed a ‘free weed’ bin :).” Greater Toronto Airport Authority spokesperson Robin Smith was happy to set the record straight.

“‘Free weed’ is resoundingly incorrect, and I think that’s putting it mildly,” Smith told Gizmodo over email. “Once something goes into the container, it doesn’t come out.”

Not funny but it brings joy to my heart to know how angry Kavanaugh will be this will be part of history forever. 

A controversial cartoon drawn by Halifax-based artist Bruce MacKinnon will be added to the United States Congressional Library, The Chronicle Herald reports.
