I did a quick cartoon right after the second tragic Ft. Hood shooting. I did it before we knew much about the shooter. I naturally assumed it was another “Allah Akbar” creep.
Why would I do such a horrible and thoughtless thing. I was profiling. I feel so ashamed. But I wasn’t profiling some guy’s physical appearance or race or haircut or headgear. I was profiling an act. And I think that’s still OK.
And I wasn’t profiling the guy because of his beliefs or even his mental health issues (which all these guys seem to have in common). I was poking fun at the Administration whose pointy-headed members seem incapable of learning anything about real life.
They must be thinking “lightning doesn’t strike twice in the same place.” But it has. And lightning is not human. It is a force of nature and has its own way of doing things. Unlike humans, it doesn’t think about things. It doesn’t hold a grudge…from the time of the Crusades. It doesn’t watch websites where it can be harangued for hours about the advisability of beheading people who are a little different.
I doubt they are aware the World Trade center was bombed before 9/11. Before they came to power by telling lies about all the “stuff” they planned to give to the people voting for them. After all, in their minds if it happened during the time before they snuck into the White House, it really doesn’t matter. Right, “Leave-’em-behind-Hillary?”
But the other cartoon was about this administration wanting to ignore reality and the horror we face if we don’t pull our heads out of the sand and look around. It looked like it was about terrorists attacking in Major “Allah Akbar’s” tracks again, but it wasn’t. It was about the administration ignoring the real problem and a very obvious means of addressing the real problem.
I drew a different cartoon.
The Administration doesn’t and can’t get it.
