THE LOSS OF EDITORIAL FREE SPEECH AT THE WASHINGTON POST

Washington Post removes ‘racist’ cartoon depicting ‘grossly mischaracterized’ Hamas terrorist with women and children tied to his body.

The removal of a cartoon by famed editorial cartoonist Michael Ramirez was not only a blow to free speech but a proactive kiss to the Hamas propagandists who have come to rely on the progressive communist democrat media outlets like the New York Times, Washington Post, NBC, and others to actively embrace terrorist propaganda but to stifle legitimate dissent.

Washington Post deletes editorial cartoon criticized as racist

The Washington Post took down an editorial cartoon Wednesday that depicted a Hamas leader using civilians as human shields, after the drawing was criticized as racist and dehumanizing toward Palestinians.

Editor’s note: As editor of the opinion section, I am responsible for what appears in its pages and on its screens. The section depends on my judgment. A cartoon we published by Michael Ramirez on the war in Gaza, a cartoon whose publication I approved, was seen by many readers as racist. This was not my intent. I saw the drawing as a caricature of a specific individual, the Hamas spokesperson who celebrated the attacks on unarmed civilians in Israel.

However, the reaction to the image convinced me that I had missed something profound, and divisive, and I regret that. Our section is aimed at finding commonalities, understanding the bonds that hold us together, even in the darkest times.

[OCS: Obviously, the simpering wimp does not understand his job. It is not to finding comonalities, but to inform, entertain, and to provoke readers into thinking for themselves rather than just consuming pre-digested pablum. And, since when did abhorent child abuse bind anyone except depraved persons and pedophiles together?]

In this spirit, we have taken down the drawing. We are also publishing a selection of responses to the caricature. And we will continue to make the section home to a range of views and perspectives, including ones that challenge readers. This is the spirit of opinion journalism, to move imperfectly toward a constructive exchange of ideas at all possible speed, listening and learning along the way.David Shipley, Opinion Editor <Source>

[As long as you have good intentions, you can do something antithetical to what you say!]

Perhaps another editorial cartoonist says it best…

Bottom line…

The Washington Post, long known for its progressive communist democrat bias and its willingness to censor the news and cancel dissident opinions, is just another example of the radical left’s fascination with multiculturalism, moral equivalency, and anti-Israel, anti-Jew sentiment in Washington, D.C.

This media cowardice or, worse, intentional behavior is how we lose our nation.

We are so screwed.
