Far too much of the content of The Times, the paper to which I’ve subscribed for some years, is left-wing and feminist-compliant (but alternative titles are worse in these respects). One of its leading contributors is Caitlin Moran, a vile feminist, who writes books with titles such as How to Be a Woman. Her favourite topic to write about is, predictably, herself. 43 years old, her Twitter tagline is:
Writing the fuck out of shit since 1992.
When I last mentioned the tagline on this blog, someone emailed me, suggesting the tagline should be changed to:
Writing fucking shit since 1992.
With today’s Times there’s a supplement, “The year in cartoons”, featuring a selection of the political cartoons of the paper’s resident cartoonist, Peter Brookes. In common with almost all political cartoonists, it seems to me, the man’s a Leftie, and the supplement had commentary on each one cartoon featured. The one that brought the most red mist down was the following, which is for sale for £1,450 – here. Pleasingly it remains unsold at £1,450, three months after publication.
Brookes writes in reference to his cartoon:
29.9 #WeToo “At least three women [J4MB: That will be three women, then] accused Brett Kavanaugh, Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, of sexual harassment. [J4MB: An accusation of sexual harassment is a guilty verdict, amirite?] During the confirmation hearing, Kavanaugh just didn’t behave the way you’d expect a judge to – OK, he was fighting for his political life, but even so, you thought, ‘Who could take this berk seriously?’ That’s why I drew #WeToo, because he and Trump are just as bad as each other. Now the awful truth is that American legislation will be shaped for years and years by those Trump has nominated for the Supreme Court.”
The bottom line? The cartoonist at The Times, once a conservative newspaper, is anti-conservative, and would deny due process to a highly regarded judge.
We can but hope Peter Brookes faces false allegations of sexual harassment. Might that make him reconsider his perspective on the matter?
