Readers Comment on Controversial Biden Cartoon

Last week, Joe Biden (view all our Biden Gaffe cartoons) got into some hot water when he awkwardly told a crowd during a campaign rally that “Romney’s going to let the big banks once again write their own rules – unchain Wall Street!” adding, “They’re going to put y’all back in chains.”

Well, our conservative flamethrower Gary McCoy responded with this cartoon about the gaffe-prone Vice President:

McCoy’s cartoon created a stir among readers, and led to a deluge of comments from our Facebook and Twitter pages. Here’s a sampling of their comments:

Paul Hartzer: Racism under the guise of rebuking Biden’s “racism”.

Jon Hall: Here come the defenders of the Progressive Faith — letting us all know he didn’t mean *those* chains …

Stilton Jarlsberg: I applaud Gary McCoy’s courage in speaking out about this. Racism is NOT acceptable – especially in the mouths of those on the Left who make it into policy.

Mary Lou Quinn: How can (inappropriately) referring to the early history of black americans be, in any way, compared as equal to references of watermelon and malt liquor? Weapons of mass distraction!

Anika Denton: This cartoon is so vile and unfunny. Biden didn’t even make a racist statement, it’s Republicans fake poutrage that made simple-minded people think it was racist.
