Could not leave alone Union-Tribune editorial cartoonist Steve Breen’s piece of work published in today’s paper. Apparently, he falls into that group of patriots who think 20 years in Afghanistan is just not enough. His cartoon today displayed that sentiment.

So, here’s our response – added some color to his graphic.

Hey, I know the coloring is crude but the tools at my disposal are difficult to use. did anyone go to the U-T to see his original? I didn’t provide a link … kind of intentionally.

Dick move, you hacks. Dick move.
Draw your own goddam cartoon next time.

Breen’s pro-war cartoon just had to be answered. What does Breen want us to do ? Stay another 20 years in Afghanistan? Enough! Finally, we have a prez who can say ‘no’ to the generals. Just say no, JP Trostle.

Then. Draw. Your. Own. Fucking. Cartoon.

Does theft have to be literally spelled out to hacks like you? Apparently so to the aptly-named “rag”

It’s not theft, Mr. period after every word, when pro-war “art” is turned into its opposite.

Don’t feed the troll. Parody is protected speech.

lol best leave this shit to the pros, chump — you have zero clue what you’re talking about.


Frank Gormlie April 17, 2021 at 1:21 pm

Okay, Mr Period, who are the “pros” pray tell? Mr. Steve Breen? You? As Peter said, parody is protected speech, so clearly if this is a new idea to you, they you are the one who is clueless.

Methinks this troll has some very thin skin that can’t take a bit of satire. Of course I’m SURE he gets all upset when the right wing reactionaries do something similar to anti-war cartoons.

Hey Mr. Troll, can you answer a few questions for me?

1. How many Afghani hijackers out of 18 men were there on those 9/11 jets?
2. How many Iraqis were there?
3. How many Libyans?
4. How many Syrians?
5. How many Cubans?
6. How many Venezuelans?
7. How man Iranians?
8. How many Russians?
9. How many Chinese?

Now let’s get to the point.

10. HOW. MANY. SAUDI. ARABIANS? Oh wait, they’re our friends so we won’t mention the fact that 15 out of 18 were, and that multi-millionaire Osama bin Laden from a VERY prominent & wealthy Saud family was armed, funded, and trained by the US Army and CIA by Reagan and his goons. But we’ll keep drone bombing, blowing up, assassinating, killing, and calling the previous nine countries our enemies…because we so smart with eddycation and flag wavn and nookler bombs…

No offense to the Rag, but the Copley Press? What a rag…and I was the Evening Tribune paperboy featured in the picture in that paper for ‘Newspaper Boy Day’ at Belmont Park in 1968. How embarrassing. Can I take that tact endorsement back now because I really didn’t understand just how awful that paper was/is?
