Being Ted Rall

Editorial cartoonist Ted Rall recently made the news for penning yet another crass cartoon, this one denigrating Pat Tillman, the football star turned soldier recently killed in Afghanistan. Rall painted Tillman as a racist, bloodthirsty idiot who was just another cog in the "El Busho" war machine.

MSNBC.com decided to pull the cartoon because it "did not meet MSNBC.com standards of fairness and taste."

Blogger Andrew Sullivan called for a protest campaign against Rall and yesterday offered this enlightening Rall quote:

"The word 'hero' has been bandied about a lot to refer to anyone killed in Afghanistan or Iraq. But anyone who voluntarily goes to Afghanistan or Iraq [as a soldier] is fighting for an evil cause under an evil commander in chief."

Later Sullivan highlighted another Rall quote:

"My theory is that essentially, people don't like to think they're living in a country that's led by an evil, dictatorial madman. But they are, they are living in Nazi Germany, in Stalinist Russia."

In Rall's morally inverted view of reality, President Bush is equal to Hitler and Stalin, so by extension American soldiers under his command are jackbooted mass murderers, not heroes. Is it any wonder that Rall would find pleasure in kicking the corpse of a fallen American soldier?

UPDATE: FrontPageMagazine's Ben Johnson has a good overview of Ted Rall's and other leftists' anti-Americanism: The Left Smears an American Hero. (Via LGFer Axiom)

The fact that Ted Rall is still running around loose is hurting my morale. We saw a lot of this same sort of nonsense during the Viet Nam War. The answer to it then as well as now is the same ~ take these sick socio-psychopaths and lock them up for the duration!

Surely they could find someone better than the sodomite-and-proud-of-it Andrew Sullivan to speak out against the a-hole...

Saw Rall on Fox last night. What a smarmy, smart-a$$, smirking little lefty he is! God, I hate people like him. I wish Fox had just ignored him and not given him any more of a forum than he already has.

There is a good number of delusional people on the left that think this same way. Hell, there is a whole forum of them underground.

Ted Rall is a classic doctrine, Grad School relativist. He reminds me of a more introverted Bill Maher. He throws these lines like "Tillman was a murderer" or "Bush=Hitler+Stalin" with a wink and a nod. He really thinks this makes him cute and garners him attention.

I don't think he even means to be malicious. He is so utterly devoid of any realistic frame of reference that he can't understand why all those blockheads get so upset. I see no use for him and nothing that can really be done about him.

Ted Rall is a dead weight loss. I can't help but look at this man and think what an utter waste.

Ted Rall is the kind of wimp that wasn't weened until he was 10 and stopped sleeping with mommie when they sent him off to Graduate School.

I bet he still masturbates to pictures in National Geographic or his 90 year old maid.

What a useless pile of Donkey dung. Mr. Tillman had more courage and heroism in his feces that Ted Rall could ever muster in a million years. Another worthless ejaculate that ended up being supported for his hatemongering.

Note to Ted Rall, you deserve the worst treatment any human could muster on another. Because you desecrate those that paid the ultimate sacrafice so you can be such a coward and hide safely behind Hundreds of thousands that are willing to put their life on the line for mear pennies versus being paid for scribbling their name on some crap you call art.

Ted Rall should be placed on a raft and set adrift.
He's trying to become famous by defaming an
American hero like Pat Tillman. I heard him on
FOX news and he sure sounds like he overdosed on
smoking to much Donkey Dung.

After the 2000 elections, a friend of mine got into an email pissing contest with Rall (about whether Bush was "elected" or "appointed"). Not only did Rall answer my friend's letter, they actually went back and forth for quite a long time.

It surprised and puzzled me that he would spend so much time at it. Surely, he must've been getting tons of mail, even four years ago.

Allow me to offer an observation: the .17HMR has the virtues of being a relatively flat-shooting round out to 150 yards or so. At distances under a 100 yards, the bullet itself is pretty frangible - that is, it does not survive contact with its target sufficiently intact to provide reliable ballistics info.

For educational purposes only, you understand.

Draw your own conclusions.

Ted's Email Guidelines
I value feedback and enjoy hearing from readers. Before you use your valuable time writing me an email, however, please note the following:

1. Like everyone else, I only have so many hours in the day to answer email. While I would prefer to respond personally and quickly to every email I receive, the increasing volume of correspondence does not make this possible. Therefore, I do not respond to threatening, obscene or completely negative (i.e., nothing but criticism) emails. This permits me to spend more time doing something constructive, like corresponding with people who understand and appreciate what I do.

2. Emails that contain threats will be reported to the appropriate law enforcement agencies as well as your Internet provider.

3. I will not respond to requests for citations, links to news articles, quotes or other information that is widely available on the Internet, television or your local library. Please do your own research.

4. If you send email with attachments and I don't know you, I'll delete your email unread and unopened. Sorry. Viruses and all that.

5. Like members of Congress, I don't respond to "form emails" that are clearly generated from the same source. If you can't think of an original way to express yourself, don't expect a response.

6. I reserve the right to publish your email in full or excerpted in any form I deem appropriate--so don't send anything you wouldn't want your mom to see in print.

7. Still here? Great! I look forward to hearing from you.

When the culture war actually becomes a real war (and I believe it will), Ted Rall will be near the top of my list of targets to acquire. Morford's on that list, too.

Welcome to FR. You've either lurked productively, or you've been here before in a previous life.

Whoops...

Thought the thread title was 'Beating Ted Rall.' My enthusiasm wanes. My mistake.

But, even as Rall engages in the Left's most popular intellectual dishonesty (cry 'Hitler' or 'Stalin' or a 'facist', etc.), he ignores the obvious refutation of that empty comparison: If the comparison had any merit, Mr. Rall would disappear in the middle of the night, never to be seen again, until his body surfaced, dismembered, his underdeveloped male (?) organ cut off and placed in his mouth, if, indeed, it ever surfaced at all. Instead, Mr. Rall seems pretty confident that he can mouth off with whatever diatribe he wishes and will come to no harm from either Mssrs. Stalin or Hitler. His childish diatribes disprove themselves....

Brutal. Gruesome. Disgusting. An excellent commentary by Cox and Forkum on one of the left's most disgusting POS "cartoonist".

Better yet, have all these losers move to Canada, where they would be much happier in the Liberal Paradise.

Rall was in Afghanistan. Perhaps he should have stayed there and helped his ideological soulmates. Of course, when one of the Taliban handed him a weapon, Rall would immediately make doo-doo in his Depends.
My nine year old could kick Rall's a**.
