" 'I do not presume to know what cartoonist Sean Delonas was trying to convey in his cartoon that was published in Wednesday's Albuquerque Journal,' Moses wrote.'But on one level it appeared to us to be poking at President Trump's rhetoric by portraying a quaking Republican couple who were painting Dreamers with a broad, totally false, brush.' "

That disingenuous Journal idiot knows full well what this cartoonist's other work is like. Most of it is in keeping with the worst (and most obvious) interpretation you could arrive at for this one.

When they begin, "I do not presume to know," you know they're about to make up some really tortured, alternative interpretation. And sure enough....

The editor apologized (however dissemblingly) for the clearly racist overtones which you so overtly exemplify, so I guess he will have to self deport under you white supremacists'[sic] boycott threat.

Explain when exactly you weren't a disingenuous slug, white supremacist [sic].

Ill Duce Trump associated Mexicans with "rapists," and said why can't we have more immigrants from Norway. Who is saying what about which races is clear, your absurd denials notwithstanding.

And why don't you list the nations you feel are sending the most undocumented to the US? Since "illegals" is not, you fatuously claim, the latest in a long line of right wing, racist dog whistles.

Lastly, right wing filth doesnn't know what "race" even means. It's a social construct far more than any sort of biological category.

Political cartoons are meant to provoke thought, while perhaps bringing light to current concerns.

Anti free speech, are you?

But homegrown white supremacists [sic] are far more filthy, uneducated and violent than the undocumented are, on average.

But columnists and academics can't state the simple, ugly facts, and reporters can't report the simple, ugly facts. They would face violence and loss of employment.
