NO DISCUSSION OF CARTOONS IN THIS THREAD.

This has been stated several times.

Reason: see above
"Our progress in degeneracy appears to me to be pretty rapid. As a nation, we began by declaring that "all men are created equal." We now practically read it "all men are created equal, except negroes" When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read "all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics." When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretence of loving liberty -- to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocracy." - Lincoln.

A very powerful image on the front page of the latest Stern and a good play with words.

Sadly the people most seriously effected aren't the Nazis it's the poor minorities. Love the sentiment, though.

As has been pointed out as recently as the top post in this page, this is not for discussions -- it is for political cartoons. I myself am guilty of transgressing against this policy, and for that I apologize to those involved.
