Halifax cartoonist caves to outrage mob over “edgy” Wilson-Raybould sketch

David MenziesMission Specialist

As the SNC-Lavalin saga continues to take more twists and turns than a pretzel, an interesting sidebar story has developed regarding an editorial cartoon of ex-Justice Minister Jody Wilson Raybould penned by Halifax cartoonist, Michael De Adder.

The cartoon depicts Wilson-Raybould and Justin Trudeau on opposite sides of a boxing ring. In his corner Trudeau is being advised by someone, who appears to be Gerald Butts, to “keep beating her up, solicitor-client privilege has tied her hands.”

Wilson-Raybould is bound and gagged to represent the legalistic position she’s found herself in, but you know what happens next, of course.

Social media goes into meltdown-mode with accusations that the cartoonist is making light of violence against women, particularly Indigenous women.

Lost on the snowflakes is the idea of satire and symbolism with one commenter even demanding that the RCMP criminally charge the cartoonist!

Unfortunately, De Adder waved the white flag of surrender rather than show the bravery and principled stand demonstrated by cartoonist Graeme MacKay who drew a very similar cartoon yet refused to take a knee.

By the way, remind me again why we’re collectively coughing-up $595 million to bailout a bunch of mainstream media cowards?

….and I don’t like to tell other people what to do or not do, so I’m sorry if I offended anyone’s sensibilities. Feel free to remind me not to bicker, if you catch me doing it.

There is a difference between battle and bickering between ourselves.
I have no problem with your vids Robert G., and Keith I have no problem with you either. Sorry you’re shocked and triggered boys. Charred may be annoying or not to your liking, or wrong or all of the above, but a troll?

Keith Barnes.. I know Charred R. attacked you on another thread………..

Robert I don’t really know, though I sometimes wonder if he suffers from a multiple personality disorder. Should this be the case then I take back all that I have said about him, but is more likely to be nothing more than a Twisted Knickers disorder. The guy has a wedge’y.

Keith Barnes.. I know Charred R. attacked you on another thread. I think It’s a troll or a stalker.. it attacked me also.. called me a goof.. put me in the same category as the Imperial goofball as Trudeau. If we are on the same team.. why is Charred attacking us?
commented 2019-02-24 22:09:05 -0500
Still waiting Charred Remains…What are your thoughts on Americans and Canadian’s? Yes I’ve extended it to Canadians. Are you transparent?

Oh dear, Charred Remains Mom will not let him out to play, tonight.
commented 2019-02-24 21:31:56 -0500
Charred Remains.. If you are truly a PPC supporter.. show it! I watched most of President Trump’s campaign before he was elected.. He won because of the will of Americans.. against the fixing machines of soros etc. THE AMERICANS WON! Now tell us Canadians how are we to win against the corrupt cbc Trudeau Regime? I’m all ears…

I think I have one of my ex female partners on this site stalking me… geezus girl… don’t go away mad..just go away..

It is totally unbelievable how the Left automatically assumes the worst of the Right by thinking you know they made this cartoonist make this out to be what they think they seen it to be. Unfortunately it is the same in everyday everything and that is how the Left got so screwed up all by themselves. They start out on everything by thinking and thus far and proven that is not their strong suit!

See what happens when Rebels don’t have any trolls to fight with?

What you said here is now pertinent to our elections:
Charred Remains commented 1 hour

“It has never mattered who votes or how many votes it only matters who counts the votes and who they’re loyal to”.!!
Charred, 4 years ago I would not have believed your above comment, this couldn’t happen in Canada.
Then I saw the CPC Leadership election where Max literally got the trophy STOLEN out of his hands. 7000 votes not counted and destroyed immediately.

Just before the last Alberta election, some friends were staying at my house and hinted they might vote NDP. I said NO, that bunch ruined BC, and 10 years later we are still paying for it. Here is the answer I got: What harm can a little woman do in 4 years? Then his wife said, " It will take her 2 years to find all the washrooms in the Legislature."
I saw at least 40 other Albertans before the election and no one mentioned NDP.

Re your Friend, I understand a total of 20 posts regarding an Ezra program about the future of the Country; this was the comedy guy Menzies, about a cartoon, and would Feminists think it would be funny.
There were some interesting posts from Robert Greeley and James Hall that I wanted to comment on, but wasted my time on nothing.
commented 2019-02-24 11:27:13 -0500
Charred Remains—-I just went by what a bunch of Alberta friends explained to me. Both you and them said the same regarding the the corruption of the CPC.
“There is so much rot in the CPC party and the people knew it so they were pushed to extinction at election time completely annihilating them.”
Obviously voters wanted to teach the Right leaning Parties a lesson, so they voted Notely, even though not many admit to that.

My friend has a big Facebook following and at one time no one would say that they voted NDP.

Not being from Alberta, I don’t know the hidden details; I was only trying to get rid of a troll whose name may be NDP Sucks.

De Adder nailed what happened in that cartoon! The fact that he caved to this cencorship will not bode well for his career. When the truth circles the chronic liars and deceivers they squeal like pigs. McKay got it right, and stood up for freedom of speech! If people don’t want to lose free speech, then refuse to be cowed into apologizing for telling the truth!

“Hyacinth—Use your head, I think you are on something.”

Reread all of your posts Ron or sleep off the alcohol. You accused me directly of several things but the most humorous was “Harper warned YOU that Justin wasn’t ready.” Now you are backpedaling, priceless LMAO.
commented 2019-02-24 00:43:19 -0500
Hyacinth—Use your head, I think you are on something. “Harper warned you that Justin wasn’t ready.” Harper was warning the Province, not one person.

“Harper warned you that Justin wasn’t ready.”

You think I am a Liberal Ron?? LMAO!! You better hang up the bottle there boy cause your brain is rotting from too much alcohol tonight. - – – -

“Watch out for the divide and conquer routine folks.. "

Yep and Ron Joseph is running away with that tonight, but he is a hoot and a half, worth waiting to see what other pearls drop from his pen LOL.
