That damned Incident

What's Mallard raving about today?

President Obama, Trayvon Martin

Wow. Have fun in the comments.

Too bad, so sad, Brucie.

This paragraph from the story kind of jumped out at me:

"People should not be jumping to conclusions about what they think is going on," Sergeant [Phil] Toney said. "They don't have all the facts and they really should step back and let the police do their job. That's one of the main problems, is people jump to support this or that, and they don't even have all the facts."

Looks like someone conveniently forgot his own advice, huh?

Tog said...

Desperate to get his race war on, Batshit Bruce has forgotten about "waiting for all the facts" and altered his standard mid-week turnaround from "I'm not racist...YOU are!" to "We're not racist...THEY are!"

"retaliation incident," huh? I guess Batshit means in addition to all the incidents in which gangs of angry white males killed a Korean businessman over Toyota building a plant in the area, beat up a Sihk to avenge 9-11, invaded Iraq, blew up any number of buildings--from churches and doctor's offices to the Murrah Building.

Can't tell because Batshit never mentioned any of those (or any other) "retaliation incident." Except the last one, and then only in angry don't-blame-US defensiveness.

But then again, those incidents don't count. Because those crimes were all committed by white guys...and therefore they were all totally justified, right? Didn't you know? White men are the only victims of anything, ever, in the history of the world!

Also: Obama sucks! Because he's racist! In fact, this is probably part of his secret Islamofasciocommunazi plan to destroy America! Don't ask how it's supposed to work! Just be afraid! Death panels!

Tinsley won't be happy until Obama's white side beats the crap out of his black side, like some demented third-season Star Trek plot.

CW in LA said...

"See? SEE?!?!? He ADMITS him an' Trayvon Martin are BOTH Knee-grows!!!!!!"

Anyway, I'll bet it didn't take several weeks and a nationwide outcry for the suspects in Brews' "retaliation incident" to be charged with a crime, huh?

Bill the Splut said...

So...racially motivated violence leads to racially motivated violence, and one of the two is okay?

Go read Frank's link--no wonder Bruce didn't leave an asterisk. Also, pork rinds.

DiR said...

I"m going to save us all time for the rest of this week.
"Race bait, race bait, liberals are racists, everything is Obama's fault."

Way to wait for all the facts to come out before commenting, douchecanoe.

Steve-O said...

Bruce Tinsley is a fucking useless piece of shit.

That is all.

Rootbeer said...

I'm going to continue nitpicking the artwork instead of paying any attention to the frankly vile sentiments of the text. Anybody mind?

Bruce Tinsley has President Obama say/think the phrase "this old man" in reference to the 78-year-old who got his pork rinds rustled, yet he draws Obama pointing his thumb at himself.

For once he actually attempts to introduce some dynamicism to his figure posing, and ends up undermining the strip's intended meaning.

Kip W said...

@Frank Stone, I had to snort in reading the comments at your link. The 78-year-old man apparently exaggerated the assault, but there's still got to be comments from Mr. Testosterone about how he'll be ready with his Glock if anything like that ever happens!

(And as I said somewhere else, these people remind me of a friend who said he didn't need a seat belt, because if he started to crash into something, he'd clutch the steering wheel and push away hard.)

rewinn said...

Today's "comic" is another perfect example of conservative Martyrbation:
The pleasure of complaining about being persecuted, when practiced by people who aren't actually being persecuted.

Get over to Urban Dictionary and give it a thumbs-up!

Anonymous said...

Damned exaggerating old white guy! Only a racist would complain about being beaten by blacks. This is a true teachable moment. How did we fail those poor youths?

Tog said...

Poor Anonymous! Is that all you have? Here, give me your hand. I'll walk you through it, little guy.

No one's claiming the beating of an elderly man was justified. No one is claiming it was not a crime. No one is laughing because an old man got beat up.

We're laughing at Batshit, because immediately after crying about people being tried in the media, and admonishing everyone to "wait for the facts," he played up the "retaliatory incident" aspect, which (as is usually the case when Batshit cites a reference) turned out to be wildly exaggerated.

Meanwhile, over on your side, your fellow "not-racists-at-all" are claiming a murder was justified, that the murder of Trayvon Martin wasn't a crime, and they are laughing because a black man was shot.


Now run along and wipe all the snot off your face, wash up, and go give your mama a hug. That's a good little culture warrior...

Rootbeer said...

No, President Obama couldn't say his son would have looked like 78-year-old white man Dallas Watts.

But he could say his grandfather did; like Watts, Stanley Armour Dunham was a military veteran and white as hell.
