A white liberal cartoonist has accused a black Republican of being a supporter of the Ku Klux Klan.
Why? Because black Republican Daniel Cameron, who’s poised to be Kentucky’s first black attorney general if he wins the upcoming Nov. 5 election, supports Republican President Donald Trump.
Sounds about left.
This is what the @HeraldLeader —a “tolerant,” left-leaning newspaper—thinks about black folks who dare to be Republican. You’re a racist following the KKK unless you hate @realDonaldTrump.

The cartoon shared above by Cameron was published last Friday in the Lexington Herald-Leader by cartoonist Joel Pett, an unabashed white liberal who, it would seem, has deemed himself the savior of all minorities … except for the ones he dislikes, of course.
Look at some of his past work below:

Case in point: Flash-back to 2015, when he exploited then-Kentucky Gov.-elect Matt Bevin’s family to attack his position on Syrian refugees.
At the time, Bevin said he’d block then-President Barack Hussein Obama’s plans to flood his and other local communities with unassimilated, unscreened Syrian refugees.
“My primary responsibility as governor of Kentucky will be to protect the citizens of the commonwealth,” he said. “This is why I am joining with other governors across the country in opposing the resettlement of Syrian nationals until we can better determine the full extent of any risks to our citizens.”
The remarks were made only days after terrorists who’d snuck into France by exploiting Europe’s lax screening of Syrian refugees committed a series of terror attacks in Paris that left 131 people.
At least one of the perpetrators “entered Europe as just another face in the crowd — embedded in the current wave of Syrian war refugees,” as reported at the time by CNN.
“One of the men who attacked Paris held an emergency passport or similar document, according to an unnamed French senator who was briefed by the French Ministry of the Interior,” the report continues. “The senator told CNN the bomber falsely declared himself to be a Syrian named Ahmad al Muhammad, born on September 10, 1990 and was allowed to enter Greece on October 3.”
“From there he moved to Macedonia, then Serbia and Croatia, where he registered in the Opatovac refugee camp, the lawmaker said. Eventually, he made his way to Paris, where he was one of three men who blew themselves up at the Stade de France.”
Bevin’s point was that it was clearly unsafe to import Syrian refugees without properly screening them. It’s a point that would later be touted by President Donald Trump.
But instead of acknowledging Bevin’s point, Pett responded by running a cartoon in which he depicted the governor as a man so overwhelmed with fear that he couldn’t even distinguish between terrorists and his own four adopted Ethiopian children:

The premise of the cartoon was that Bevin’s decision regarding Syrian resettlement was based on racism. It’s a refrain that’s been heard countless times from the left, to the point that these days even minorities are frequently accused of being “white supremacists” for daring to, as an example, oppose illegal immigration.
The then-governor-elect responded to the cartoon by issuing a statement excoriating Pett for his “overt racism.”
“They say a picture is worth a thousand words,” he said. “Indeed, today, the Lexington Herald-Leader chose to articulate with great clarity the deplorably racist ideology of ‘cartoonist’ Joel Pett. Shame on Mr. Pett for his deplorable attack on my children and shame on the editorial controls that approved this overt racism.”
“Let me be crystal clear, the tone of racial intolerance being struck by the Herald-Leader has no place in the Commonwealth of Kentucky and will not be tolerated by our administration.”
How did Pett respond? By claiming he’s not a racist.
“Pett, in a telephone interview, said he is ‘not a racist,'” the Herald-Leader, which clearly chose to keep him on staff, reported at the time. “‘When Bevin has time to think about it — and there will be recurring criticism of his administration — I think he will view things differently,’ Pett said. Pett said he would ‘chalk up Bevin’s reaction to inexperience on his part.'”
But why should anybody believe him, especially after the cartoon he ran last week? He’s white, and according to the backward identity politics-based ideology to which he subscribes, the voices of minorities outweigh the voices of evil whites like him.
And well, it’s pretty clear how Cameron, an actual minority (versus a white man pretending to be the savior of minorities), feels about him.
Conversely, it’s also very clear how Pett and his fellow white liberal peers feel about any minority who dares to not bow at their feet.
Observe in 3 … 2 …

An honor? You are a black man & he’s a racist white supremacist. He endorsed you to use you…to say “see, this proves I’m not a racist”. Clearly you have no self respect or dignity.

When you are proud to be endorsed by an evil man like @realDonaldTrump you are obviously easily bought.

A black man who clearly supports a racist! Sad!

It’s really not an honor. You’re terribly misinformed. You need to open your eyes, Danny. Do a little research on him.
