Letter to the Poughkeepsie Journal - Sent 9/23/17

By Bill Kriebel

The irony was just too delicious! The day after you printed a letter calling for Bruce Tinsley’s “Mallard Fillmore“ comic strip to be removed from the comics page for, among other petty offenses, “denigration“ of former President Obama, your “Non Sequitur“ cartoon the next day denigrated the current president in the vilest way imaginable, insinuating he’s a Nazi.

There was an aide, attired in what looked like a Gestapo or SS uniform, addressing the president with “Heil MAGA!“ and the president responding with “URP“ and “SNIFF“. Is that appropriate for young children to see? I’ll be waiting for the author of the letter to call for the removal of “Non Sequitur“. I won’t be holding my breath.

I think what really induced the author to write was Tinsley telling the truth about Antifa, i.e., that they’re a bunch of thugs wearing masks and wielding weapons to intimidate people who disagree with their far-left orthodoxy. They want to silence such people, just like the author of the letter does. They are the real fascists.
