Newspaper Criticized for Ferguson Riots Cartoon

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

Don't even tell that LIE!!!!!!!!!!!
Raciest is exactly what it was!!!!!!
If not, all the people depicted would NOT have been BLACK!!!!!!!!!!!
Not only black people are OUTRAGED!!
It is hilarious when a caucasian proclames that they aren't raciest to a Black person! What you may not realize, is that Black people in america live our lives tip-toeing through situations rife with racial prejudice... WE RECOGNIZE RACISM BECAUSE WE HAVE TO IN ORDER TO SURVIVE! So,don't even TRY to tell us that cartoon that is CLEARLY raciest!

That cartoon is an accurate portrayal of what happened in Furgeson last night. Be sure to thank the store owner for that hanky you stole, and be sure to tip toe around the destruction that was wrought by your fellow sociopaths.
