You do know he isn't President anymore, right?

Is there a word for the opposite of subtlety? If not, I propose branco.

For example: This cartoon is so fucking branco I suspect the person who drew it might actually be brain-dead. They probably think they're so clever for making this comparison, like nobody's ever compared any government to 1984 before.

(((Weekend Past Blast Cartoon))) Trumps buddy Wiretapping DNC computers during the 2016 election is looking very much like Orwellian 1984, or more like (((Mien Trumpfian))).

He's out of office, stop obsessing over Obama.

He's actually presenting the suggesting of Obama tracking racial crime, something Trump wants to start with a new department called VOICE on immigrant crime ONLY, not a investigative body yet, a phone in and harp about muzzies and wetback collection. Being that crime states are racially broke down already it's obvious Trump is trying to start his own fake stats department to counter those pesky high domestic terrorism numbers. It's not OKd but I don't think something like that would need to be, Breitbart and WND are already providing lots of those stories, I predict a web site will go up where fan fiction of immigrant horror stories will be presented.

It made sense to reference 1984 and Animal farm in social commentary movies and liberal circles, people who knew what those books were about. Righty would be more connected to Babe and Bambi references, These are the people that couldn't handle the context in To Kill A Mockingbird or In The Heat Of The Night. They'd like to do Duck Dynasty symbolism but every time they draw Phil Robertson he comes out looking like a mad sheik.

What Obama did or didn't do is the least of your problems.

'Keep your enemies close, but your friends closer', and all that jazz.

And after being pissed off by Donald Fart, I suspect that the FBI & NSA are now even closer friends with GCHQ & MI6.

With what's in the database of the supercomputers at GCHQ: and their total scanning of the entire telecommunications system - especially about Wiggy - what could be 'accidentally on purpose' given to Wikileaks, should that orange retard think he has the right to have ideas above his station...?!

All it would take is that data transferred to a 128 Gb Micro-SD Card hidden in a hollow coin for that purpose being handed to someone involved with that site...!

I completely agree, Mr Branco, it is starting to look very Orwellian over in the States.

The best part of this episode was Trump's tweeted misspelling of the word "tap."

The so-called race database was an attempt to track incidence of racial discrimination. How interesting that the political faction that claims racism has become irrelevant in today's society also don't want to see the data that could demonstrate that. It's almost as if their claims of egalitarian color bindnes was a fig leaf allowing them to keep on discriminating.

But that's silly, right? I mean, they wouldn't vote for an overtly racist candidate, would they?

You know, like a candidate with orange hair who constantly tweets idiotic statements?

When did Branco start using echo brackets? (((Sheesh)))!

You know, initially I just brushed this guy off as a typical conservative cartoonist. Someone who makes terrible cartoons preaching bad things, but otherwise not really FSTDT-material.

But then he broke (((these))) out. Fuck him.

Know what is even more Orwellian? Should I tell you? I think I will anyway. In Nineteen Eighty Four, the party of Big Brother had the philosophy of Party First. Like your GOP does. You and your ilk are perfectly fine with Russia hacking the election. Even Trump himself didn't think he'd win. But for you it's ok. Because it means your party got in power. How quickly you throw country under the bus to get a taste of power. And really the peons only get to lord and moralise over everyone else but they don't have anything worth having. All under the guise of "patriotism" when you could give less than a fuck about this country. You are what Orwell was against. You are what Orwell warned us about. AF Branco and your party can take your Party First philosophy and fuck right off




And read Nineteen Eighty Four before discussing it you wannabe failed cartoonist.

Maybe some years from now:

O'Brien: "At this moment, which power is Trumpiania at war with?"

Winston: "When I was arrested, Trumpiania was at war with China."

O'Brien: "With China. Good. And Trumpiania has always been at war with China, has it not? The truth, please, Winston. Your truth. Tell me what you think you remember."

Winston: "I remember that until only a week before I was arrested, we were not at war with China at all. We were in alliance with them. The war was against Russia. That had lasted for four years. Before that --" (Stopped by a movement of the hand from O'Brien.)

What do the echo brackets ((())) mean?

@Chris


As I understand it, the fascists I mean the alt-right, use them to know who is a Jew for harassment purposes

Or like completely fabricated lies from the Orange Clown.

((())) means Weekend Past Blast Cartoon is a Jew?

3/9/2017 5:22:05 AM



It might be a code or AF Branco is using them wrong or something. My guess would be latter.

@Chris

There is a podcast that puts a heavy reverb in when mentioning the jewish people and groups that are secretly running the world. ((())) is the text equivalent.

Why does Obama always look like an angry Bill Cosby in these wingnut cartoons?
