Fillmore retort

San Luis ObispoJune 28, 2013 

The June 25 “Mallard Fillmore” that depicts President Obama as a fascist demands a response.

It is the responsibility of political cartoonists to have an understanding of political history. It is also their responsibility to express opinions without inflaming those who are already borderline torchcarriers.

Mr. Tinsley may be ignorant of just what a fascist is, and was, during the 1930s. Or, Mr. Tinsley may know but be too reckless to care. Either way, he’s not qualified to have a soapbox in your newspaper.
