WASHINGTON, Dec. 24, 2015—The backlash against Ann Telnaes’ feeble and now 86’d attempt at political humor—that notoriously racist online cartoon depicting Ted Cruz’ two young daughters as trained monkeys—continues today. It demonstrates once again the abiding distaste of a growing number of Americans for this country’s so-called “independent” news media.
Instapundit’s Glenn Reynolds has frequently labeled the MSM as “Democrat operatives with bylines.” Telnaes’ cartoon for the WaPo merely confirmed anew what Reynolds and other rational people already knew about this wealthy subclass of SJWs (Social Justice Warriors). They love to preach multiculturalism while practicing quite the opposite when it suits them as well as the socialist party their propaganda efforts support.

Tweet number two builds on earlier Hillary imagery, recasting it in the image and likeness of the now-banned anti-Cruz cartoon.
