So much for a celebratory mood this 4th of July. The cartoonists clearly aren’t feeling it, and if we’re being honest, neither am I. On that happy note, here are some of the nation’s best editorial cartoonists on this week’s bleak news.
4th of July
Trump & White Power
And Other News
If you enjoy these editorial cartoons, I hope you will share them!
Reblogged this on The Secular Jurist.
Given all that is tearing the country apart, feeling patriotic is not coming easily on this 4th of July. I have had to repeat this quote to myself several times betwixt last evening and today : “Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it.” – Mark Twain. This is another excellent collection of political cartoons from a talented group of cartoonists. Thank-you!
I felt the same way on the fourth, Ellen.
This year, I can honestly say that I don’t see a thing about this country worth celebrating. The cartoons are spot on, and I hope that by next year I can feel at least a bit of optimism that I surely do not feel today. Thanks for the ‘toons, TS!
I saw a lot of people discussing how they were looking forward to celebrating in 2021.
We’ll either be celebrating, or mourning the death of a nation.
Let’s work to make sure it’s the first.
We’re both doing our best toward that end, my friend. Fingers crossed that the combined efforts of all of us will be enough. Actually, Trump may well be digging his own grave, but we cannot let our guard down. It’s exhausting. I’m hoping to get a full night’s sleep sometime in November 😉
