Prepare to take criticism if you point out the obvious. The Columbia Daily Tribune published a cartoon pointing out the rampant lawlessness perpetuated by “protestors” in Ferguson, MO. And as you can expect, effete libtards can’t stand being lampooned.
I admit I didn’t anticipate the reaction. I’m responding to complaints, most of which have come through the Twitter universe, by asking them to consider the context. On three of the preceding four days our editorial page featured local cartoons about the Michael Brown tragedy, the militarization of the police response and a likeness of Lady Justice with six bullet wounds.
The editorial cartoon yesterday accompanied a Rich Lowry column about the unfortunate presence of looters and how that is not a legitimate form of protest. Provocative yes. Racist? Certainly not in intent
