Indy Star caves to outrage mob over editorial cartoon mocking Blasey Ford’s demands

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.

This cartoon is hilarious. Christine Blasey Ford is a fraud! (Just ask her C_A handler)

I wonder, if I were to post comments on the Vice website using this screen name, how long would it be before I got myself voted off the island?
Oh, that’s right, I almost forgot. Vice kiboshed their comment section almost two years ago because too many of their commenters had too much to say about their crappy journalistic practices and false information.
But nowadays, those are very minor infractions compared to such outrageous crimes as expressing mildly politically incorrect thoughts or, gasp, having an actual sense of humor, right?
The horror, the horror.

Very good, this is the only way to deal with the perpetually triggered and the leeches who gain a free ride from jumping on the virtue signalling bandwagon. Laughter and more ‘so whats’ than they have heard in their lifetime.
