    Offensive? Not for a political cartoon. I see is as cheesy and trivializing the brutality against African-Americans when the KKK ruled - and in much of the country it did including controlling/being local government and law enforcement.

    Comparing the KKK to the NAACP.

    Up next, abortion clinics are the new concentration camps.

    All this and more on Desperate Conservatives.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Just degrees of the same despicable acts.
    Yes, asking for a trial and asking for a lynching are *exactly* the same!

    I hadn't noticed the NAACP on a robe. Yeah, I think that's offensive, but its a political cartoon, which are generally greatly overstated and insulting towards someone.

    The cartoonist has a right to make his point, but I have a right to say that it's offensive.
    The only thing that picture is missing is the media.Seeing how the yellow journalism of the media basically threw fuel onto the fire.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Not getting the point which goes to the whole 'deliberately' thing...

    They GOT a trial...a trial they shouldnt have had because those that know the case and the system believed a trial wasnt warranted. they GOT a trial. they 'lost'. Now they want the fed to come in with some new charges.

    Do you think this is offensive? [W:51]

    It's offensive to some but not others; depends on your point of view on the issue. It's political satire at best and at worst a tasteless way to flame the heated passions driving the issue.

    Never said the end result was the same. But the actions? You bet.
