News broke yesterday that the New York Post ran a semi-apology for Sean Delonas' latest cartoon that basically compared President Obama to the rampaging chimp from earlier in the week ("They'll have to find someone else to write the next stimulus bill"). My question is this: Who is surprised? Sean Delonas is a hateful, intolerant, homophobic, racist, jackbooted conservative who has been penning deliberately inflammatory cartoons for years. Hasn't anyone been paying attention? This is just what he does! Delonas plays upon every hateful stereotype, panders to the slack-jawed lowest common denominator and veils his hatred under the flimsy guise of 'parody.' For example, when Kurt Cobain shot himself, Delonas drew a cartoon that depicted him arriving in Hell. Classy, eh?
Stop reading the Post.
