Don’t waste our time

Regarding a political cartoon published on July 22 (“Our Misrepresentative Democracy”): Once again, The Signal publishes a cartoon that is not funny or clear in its message.

It seems that the cartoonist, Nate Beeler, is equating the KKK to the tea party movement. It is becoming tiresome to see the editorial staff show such poor judgment in the selection of what The Signal prints. This cartoonist is obviously a left-wing hack with no ability at critical thinking. 

It is a ridiculous premise to equate the tea party movement with the KKK. Left-wing activists have been trying to make that stick since the party’s inception, and most people find that it is patently untrue. The dialogue of the left is the same as with any agency or regime that does not have a defensible position — they resort to the lie. The idea is to tell it often enough, and some will believe.

You insult your readers when you go that far over the line. If someone has a thought-provoking point to make, then show us.
But if it’s about left-wing activism, don’t waste our time.
