Retards to the Alt-Left of me, retards to the Alt-Right.
I love the detail that there ARE minorities on the “right” – everything to the left of Marx is far-right, it seems – despite what the MSM tries to cram down your throat (going so far as to cut them off when they espouse views contrary to the Narrative) and the difference between the women on both sides.
Very shrewd, very well observed, very true to reality.
Well played, Mr. Martinez. Very well played.
I just noticed the plural of “y’all”.
Uh, no. The first panel has a quote said be pretty much no one of any authority or power.
The second panel has lines saying hurricanes were sent to punish gays which extremely powerful religious leaders like Robert Joyner, Tony Perkins, Pat Robertson, Jerry Fallwell — even Kirk Cameron! — have repeatedly alleged. Ann Coulter said Hurricane Harvey was punishment for Houston electing a lesbian as mayor (tongue in cheek, but still playing to her base and denying climate change).
The second panel has MAGA, the slogan of the President of the United States.
These are not even remotely similar.
Umm, while not necessary author of high power … celebrities and most of vocal SJW’s in social media yell line of first panel …actually I have heard first panel line said like 10 times more often than 2nd panel one
People on both sides said the bullshit, it’s irrelevant who said it specifically.
It’s a comic, not an in-depth account of every minute detail of what’s been going on.
Generically speaking, it is remarkably accurate, and that, for me, is what matters.
I *could* take umbrage with specific details that don’t fit my particular bias, but I’m perfectly capable of stepping back and appreciate the lack of partisanship on this comic.
This should show up on a screen whenever Tool plays Aenema.
*Insert derogatory banter here*
You are not the real Milan
*Insert sarcastic confirmation bias here.*
Sometimes I agree with what God is saying here. I live in Australia and there is a lot of dirty tricks being played by both sides of the gay marriage plebiscite, yes and no.
was pepe’s world of warcraft ‘laughing at you’ reference intentional?
Indeed it was. But it goes deeper, much deeper than WoW. All the way back to ancient Egypt.
Search for Kekistan, just keep in mind everything a certain segment of the population doesn’t like, they consider Nazism.
Spoiler: It’s a parody of identity politics.
You promised you wouldn’t do this anymore God!
This is creation abuse!
This is why mother nature left you!
Outside of the odd religious nut who always makes a tasteless accusation like that, who the fuck on the right actually said those things? No one? Yeah, didn’t think so–the few who uttered words to that effect did so in satirical response to the several Twitter-verified journalists and celebrities who were being racist pieces of shit. The Lefties were the ones pulling these shenanigans, not the right-wingers.
I’ll take back what I said and feel ashamed for saying so if you can show me at least… well, one’s a fluke, so we’ll go with two (or three if you’re up to it) right-wingers whom anyone at all follows or listens to that sincerely said something along those lines. Religious nuts who–as I said–do this all the time don’t count. I ain’t fucking around here, I’m fully ready to capitulate.
“whom anyone at all follows or listens to that sincerely said something along those lines.”
Not that I know of, no. But that wasn’t my point, nor do I believe it was Señor Martinez’s point.
For the comic to work AND be based in reality, all it takes is someone, no matter how fringe or lunatic, to say it at least once, while being serious, on either side.
THAT is the point, at least for me. The mocking of the fringe lunatics. On both sides.
I’m not saying you’re one of them, by the way, far from it. Yours was a pretty decent reply to my own, so to me, you seem like a reasonable person.
I forgot I commented here–allow me to repay your compliment, you seem like a reasonable person, too, and I salute you for that.
My thing is that I love humor… but the premise of a joke needs to be en pointe for it to be worth a laugh. For example, a humorous ‘you’re both as bad as each other’ (a la Southpark) comparison can work really well… but it only works functionally as a ‘funny because it’s true’ kind of joke. If it isn’t true, though, such as in the instance of this comparison, it’s not funny to me. It’s a lazy joke. I know humor is incredibly subjective, but there’s got to be some objective criticisms that can be made when a joke is just shit, like this one.
I mean, “Atheists and radical religious fundamentalists are just as bad as each other; they both just harp on about religion.” is a funny sentence, but it’s funny because it’s absurd, and it would be stupid to then base a joke on that wherein both parties were treated to equal punishment. It makes it especially dishonest if the less extreme side were straw-manned to sound just as bad in the telling of the joke…
I for one find little to laugh at there, only a cold empty feeling where my funny-bone used to be. I’m cursed with needing intellectual honesty and logical consistency with my low-brow humor. 😛
I understand what you mean, and I’m actually on your side, so I do have the same bias as you.
However, I believe it’s important to recognise our own flaws, and especially the loonies in our midst.
The “no matter what we do, we’ll never be as bad as THEM” attitude is very, very dangerous. Look at Antifa.
God’s face in the last panel.. uh.. did he have an orgasm?
If that’s what you think an orgasm face looks like, you’ve been fucking the wrong people.
Not that there’s anything wrong with that, of course.
