Vivek Ramaswamy Blisters Liberal Newspaper for Wildly Racist Political Cartoon Featuring ... Him

Question: What happens when a liberal newspaper shamelessly uses a wildly racist political cartoon featuring 2024 GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy to attack Republicans?


Answer: Ramaswamy promptly blasts the paper and its hateful cartoon, and fiercely defends the GOP.

Iowa’s Quad-City Times‘ bigoted cartoon depicts Ramaswamy as an “anti-woke crusader,” being “welcomed” by Republican voters.

The amateurishly drawn Ramaswamy figure says “Hello my MAGA friends!” while GOP attendees shout “Muslim!” “Show us your birth certificate!” and “Get me a SLUSHEE, Apu!”

Other than the blatant bigotry and racism, there’s another problem with the crude political cartoon, which we’ll get to in a minute.

Needless to say, Ramaswamy took issue with the cartoon, which he turned on its head as he defended conservatives across America.

It’s sad that this is how the MSM views Republicans. I’ve met with grassroots conservatives across America & never *once* experienced the kind of bigotry that I regularly see from the Left. Iowa’s ⁦@qctimes absolutely has the right to print this, but it’s still shameful.

It’s not only shameful; it’s also incorrect: Ramaswamy is a Hindu, not a Muslim. But, hey — as Hillary might say, what difference does it make, particularly when you don’t give a damn about facts, and your only goal is to exploit race to lie about conservatives?


Incidentally, you ever notice how it’s not only perfectly okay — even necessary — for the party that champions “diversity, equity, and inclusion” to mercilessly attack minorities who support conservatism, while hypocritical left-wingers howl in horror about self-concocted charges of racism against Republicans, regularly?

Of course, you do — and the examples are many.

The Democrat Party has attacked Associate Justice Clarence Thomas for 32 years, including vicious racist attacks following the Supreme Court’s June 2022 overturn of Roe v. Wade.

The left’s racist attacks against 2024 presidential candidate Tim Scott have been despicable, as well. And that’s just the start of their hypocrisy, particularly against high-profile black conservatives.

You see, the refusal of members of minority groups to live on the liberal plantation is viewed by Democrats as treasonous. After all, if you’re a minority, you’re beholden to the Democrat Party, in the left’s twisted collective mind. Yet, the obscene reality is the Democrat Party has exploited black America for six decades for a singular purpose: the ballot box.

As I suggested in April, it’s way past time for a national discussion about Democrat racism, which is a real issue that Republican politicians could use to easily score points among independent voters, in my not-so-humble opinion — and there should be a concerted effort to do so.


And Vivek Ramaswamy?

The multimillionaire entrepreneur has demonstrated in a very short time that he’s not going to wilt to the left-wing race-hustling machine. While he’s unlikely to win the Republican nomination, he’d be among a handful of options I’d seriously consider for the veep slot if I were the 2024 Republican presidential nominee.

Shudder at the thought.
