The work of our correspondent cartoonist, DB, has come to interesting effect recently. Once ol’ Marcus Pittman got a gander at DB’s depiction of the subversive leadership of the Christian Right, credit where it’s due, he saw the poignancy of DB’s work and repented of his complicity in all these Leftist SJW shenanigans.
Just kidding. Finding something objectionable to Christian morals in DB’s depiction of the case, Marcus followed biblical procedure and addressed DB directly and specifically as to where he erred.
Just kidding again. What he actually did was take the matter straight to the impartial court of his own #Datpostmil amen corner on Facebook, where he charged DB with the fictional sin of ‘racism’. And hearing of it through the grapevine, DB showed up on Marcus’s own “KINIST ALERT”:
DB: So, Marcus, tell me then, what exactly makes my cartoon ‘racist’?
Marcus Pittman: You really need me to explain that to you? I think you know. Your time is running short on my FB Wall.
DB: No, I don’t know. I think you’re throwing around a pagan hex word which you yourself cannot even define.
DB: But I’m fair enough to give you a day in court.
Marcus Pittman: DB How about you justify why it is OK to draw a black person like a monkey and you can call that whatever you want?
To the people observing this conversation on my wall. Take note on how Kinist’s don’ [sic]
DB: Like a monkey? That’s something you’re reading into it, man. I merely made goofy caricatures of two Blacks in amidst goofy caricatures of many more Whites. If you see a monkey in there that’s your presuppositions bleeding through.
DB: Lacrae is in a stance typical of rappers. And truth be told, if I were doing a caricature of Eminem I’d put him in a like posture.
DB: But tell me, in light of this being a caricature of more Whites than Blacks why do you single out the cartoonish depiction of the Blacks as a cardinal sin? It seems you have a double standard couched in racial Paternalism. [Unable to post comment.]
Thus concludes the dialogue. We also saw that Marcus described the caricature of Blacks as “vile” and some of his commenters went on to add, “Anyone with that much vitriol in their heart cannot have the Holy Spirit.” Apparently, they insist any portrayal of Blacks be especially reverent — halos and little chiffon wings are mandatory in any caricatures of dark people. Or just forget it, no caricatures of minorities allowed.
As the last comment was unable to be posted, the reader understands that Marcus blocked DB so that he was unable to respond beyond that point. And in spite of DB having shown that Marcus’s stated objection to the cartoon was based upon faulty presuppositions on his own part, Marcus still went on publishing broadly the disinformation, regardless.
Which is to say that Marcus’s response to being identified among those passing off Social Justice Warrior PC groupthink in the place of conservative Christian ethics was to scream ‘Racist!’, and then dox and block the cartoonist from every venue wherein he is smeared so that he cannot respond to claims or inquiry; and Marcus’s continuance in alleging that DB portrayed a Black as a monkey in said cartoon having been disproven, Marcus only doubled down on the lie, continuing to spread his jaundiced interpretation as fact. But as an aside, even if DB had intended to depict Lecrae as a monkey, where does the Scripture, or some essential Christian doctrine, disallow such? It would seem that the apostle Paul was unaware of any such ethic when he denounced the Cretans as “evil beasts” (Titus 1:12). Marcus must have picked up his “thou shalt not satirize the holy children of Ham” doctrine from the gospel according to Marx, because he sure didn’t get it from the Bible.
All in all though, Marcus’s response to being identified as a Leftist Social Justice Warrior was to eschew any Christian protocol in favor of following the SJW playbook down to the jot and tittle. Thus only proving the accuracy of the cartoonist’s case from the beginning. Thanks for confirming that for us, Marcus.
