It should be noted that his current comics are ridiculously pro-Trump and his hatred and obsession of Hillary Clinton is only surpassed by his desire to draw Trump as a muscular and attractive young man.

Unlike the /pol/ modifications he doesn't seem to have antisemitism in his comics but he has absorbed some of the Alt-Right talking points.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Garrison is a Libertarian.  In his view, government shouldn't exist at all; the free market should decide everything.  He loves Trump because Trump is a "big businessman", and thus smarter and better that the average person... Evidence notwithstanding.

Libertarians only really care about one thing; reducing their tax rate to zero.

Sorry for the double post, but I had to put this here:

What's the original?
Quote from: Jordan Duram
It doesn't concern you, Sister, that kind of absolutist view of the universe? Right and wrong determined solely by a single all-knowing, all powerful being whose judgment cannot be questioned and in whose name the most horrendous acts can be sanctioned without appeal?

Quote from: Supreme Court of Canada
Being required by someone else’s religious beliefs to behave contrary to one’s sexual identity is degrading and disrespectful.

A progressive man fights against harmful pseudoscience and bigotry while accepting a harmless person who is merely different and who's experiences are well supported by modern science.  A Good Cartoon.

Let me guess: that was made by a TERF.

Correct.

She made a bunch of other comics like that, and also a bunch where she's basically saying  "What do you mean I'm a bigot?  I support Trans rights, except for the part where trans people have rights."

What really baffles me is the implication that the Nazis were social democrats. I mean, I know German communists called the SPD "social fascists", but I'm pretty sure that label was just typical political mudslinging.

I noticed last year that "Nazis were SOCIALISTS and therefore leftists" really became a talking point for a lot of right wingers. Not just a random joke or two here and there, it was actually something that a lot of Alt-Right and other extremists began a concentrated effort to spread. Common enough that the "And I suppose North-Korea is a democracy?" became a meme as a reply to it.

I suspect that it was some sort of effort to put the blame about Nazis onto the "Left" so that Alt-Right (who insist on not being Neo-Nazis) could then say that since they are right-wing, they can't be Nazis.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."

I've seen the "nazis were socialists" bullshit for years now, but this is the first time I've seen them called SocDems. Also why is the Jewish ball colored like the An-Cap ball? I'm pretty sure a vast majority of jews are not an-caps. So that doesn't make sense either. Is he trying to say that AnCaps were victimized in the holocaust?

So many questions I doubt I'll ever get the answer to.

There is a condescending suggestion that AOC is naive and stupid. So far it seems to me she's been pretty savvy, I certainly haven't seen anything which would lend fair comparison to Sarah Palin (other than that they are both hot):

Comparison to Palin is insulting. Ocasio-Cortez does misspeak occasionally when it comes to details but unlike with Palin there is actual substance behind what she says so it's easy to see what she means. This is another example of how folks on the right are looking for ways to use superficial comparisons to reflect back narratives used to attack them. She does need to learn to communicate better on the long run, though. This kind of weakness can slowly eat away her credibility if she keeps giving her critics easy ammo and her honey moon with her supporters won't last forever.
