A genuinely hilarious and spot-on cartoon of Christine Blasey Ford making a series of ridiculous demands to the Senate Judiciary Committee, is being condemned by the usual suspects for being “wildly offensive.”
According to VICE, the outcry over the cartoon which included Ford requesting roses, sparkling water and a bowl of green M&Ms, was swift, calling out the Indy Star for its “insensitive” depiction and misogyny.
One even expressed sympathy for female journalists who worked for a paper that would make fun of a “sexual abuse victim.”
Predictably, the paper served up a grovelling apology and threw their editorial cartoonist under the bus, in sharp contrast to how Australia’s Herald Sun handled outrage over its supposedly-offensive cartoon of Serena Williams’ meltdown at the U.S. Open.
Clearly, the Herald Sun, unlike the Indy Star, has a measure of testicular fortitude.
Pity the delusional cartoonist in 2018 who dares to mock such an accuser, for he or she shall be forced to walk the editorial plank at the first signs of discontent.
