Indy Star prints Thanksgiving cartoon, grovels before PC police

The Memory Hole  Dept

I no longer read the Indianapolis Star regularly, and things like this are why:
Varvel Taken To Woodshed Over ‘‘Extra Guests This Thanksgiving’’ Cartoon On Obama’s Executive Action On Immigration

...After the newspaper began fielding complaints over the cartoon, the Star airbrushed out the bushy mustache on what appears to be a Hispanic man climbing through the window.  Later, executive editor Jeff Taylor removed the image altogether from the newspaper’s website...
Pussies.  If you think you made a mistake, stand up and face it. Don’t even think about trying to make it disappear.

And besides, there’s nothing wrong with the cartoon, unless you argue that unfavorable depictions of anybody of an ethnic persuasion are automatically wrong.  (Appears the SJWs do, but that’s their problem.)

(Of course this is the same Indianapolis Star that couldn’t figure out Indiana’s voter ID law[1] back a month ago.)

Previously (looks like I gave ’em up about four years ago):
January 21, 2010:  Horkage
March 6, 2010:  IndyStar plays "Name That Party”
June 7, 2010:  Gotta lower those expectations!
July 12, 2010:  Hear lightning and see thunder

[1] ...which was passed almost ten year ago, and was appealed all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court before being upheld.

...but not surprising...

‘‘It’s terrifying that the guy in his mom’s basement is finding his stuff, and nobody else is,’’ he says.  ‘‘I really do find this disturbing.’’
