WaPo takes down accurate political cartoon about Hamas, bends the knee to Hamas supporters who thought it was too mean
Since the terror attack against Israel on October 7th, the Left has gone out of their way to prove Norm MacDonald right.
The latest example is the Washington Post and a political cartoon on Hamas, the terrorist organization responsible for the October 7th terror attack that left women raped, babies murdered, and people dragged from their homes. Not unlike on progressive college campuses or in the offices of Democrats on Capitol Hill, people were upset at the way WaPo was portraying Hamas in a negative light. So WaPo caved.
This is the comic strip in question:
It illustrates how Hamas uses civilians as human shields, then turns around and attacks Israel for "attacking" the civilians that Hamas is using as human shields. Then Hamas claims Israel has killed eleventy thousand children, an unverifiable stat that corporate media will echo regardless.
The staff at WaPo was outraged. Their complaints, along with letters to the editor calling the cartoon "deeply malicious," "deeply racist," and "full of bias and prejudice," got it removed. After all, we wouldn't want to offend Hamas!
The opinion editor removed the cartoon and begged for forgiveness.
"A cartoon published by Michael Ramirez on the war in Gaza, a cartoon whose publication I approved, was seen by many readers as racist. This was not my intent. I saw the drawing as a caricature of a specific individual, the Hamas spokesperson, who celebrated the attacks on unarmed civilians in Israel."
Side note about some of the people who work at the Washington Post. This was three days after the Hamas terror attack. Other Leftists barely had the time to tell Israel to show restraint.
Among those whose feelings WaPo was worried about offending include this "socialist, antifascist" columnist for The Guardian.
No word on the feelings of terror attack victims' families. Though if you were wondering why Gal Gadot was showing a documentary about the atrocities committed by Hamas, it might be because if people understood how different things were this time, they wouldn't get butthurt over a cartoon.
Some people. Clearly, not all.
As of this writing, it is unclear if WaPo opinions editor David Shipley still has a job. Standard operating procedures call for him to either resign or be fired over how "unsafe" he made his coworkers feel.
Brodigan is Grand Poobah of this here website and when he isn't writing words about things enjoys day drinking, pro-wrestling, and country music. You can find him on the Twitter too.
