Rasheed, Muhammad. "Placating the Former Competition." Cartoon. The Official Website of Cartoonist M. Rasheed 05 Sep 2019. Pen & ink w/Adobe Photoshop color.
Bob Heather - I genuinely used to think you were smart. You've managed to prove me wrong once again with your right wing, boogie man socialism scare mongering.
Muhammad Rasheed - If it helps, I never thought you were smart. ;)
Bob Heather - @Muhammad... yeah, that just shows again how fucking stupid you are.
Muhammad Rasheed - Clearly not.
I'm also "impressed" with your amazing level of 'debate' skill.
Muhammad Rasheed - The leftist economic systems are not the cure for the evils of the monopolists' crony corporatism, but are the long-planned end results of it.
You are a mouthpiece for the anti-capitalist 1% grifter class while pretending otherwise. So you are either equally sneaky and diabolical or you are "fucking stupid." Pick one and wear it proudly.
Bob Heather - @Muhammad... anti-capitalist 1%? Holy fucking hell, you don't just lick the boot you deep throat that shit. Who fucking brainwashed you? You're really just a right wing shit bag, aren't you? Drinking that faux news koolaid and worshiping at the altar of trumpism.
Bob Heather - You literally pull out the schoolyard "I'm rubber and you're glue" then insult my debate skills? If you could actually make a coherent logical point I would debate that. But, you're just some fucking unfunny schlub who believes in right wing conspiracy theories that follow absolutely no logic.
Bob Heather - Hope your still waving the banner of pro capitalism when his goons throw you in a concentration camp.

Look up at the very first comment in this thread. That's you being a juvenile clown. You've brought zero value to any of these discussion. You have no debate skills.
Muhammad Rasheed - Bob wrote: "anti-capitalist 1%?"
Exactly. There would be no 1%... no billionaire class... if it weren't for those greedy assholes warring against capitalism. Starting with J.D. Rockefeller's Standard Oil, they are the reason antitrust laws were created (see: the history leading up to the passing of the so-called Sherman Act), because of their thirst for monopolizing the open free markets capitalism needs in order to function.
The only people who say capitalism is a bad thing are the greedy 1% grifter class themselves and YOU... their left-wing puppets.
So you are either operating out of a genuine indoctrinated ignorance, or you're a damned agenteur working for the 1% pretending you're for the people. Which is it, Bob?

No. I'm a black American Descendant of Slavery (#ADOS) who recognizes that white people on BOTH sides of the partisan divide are out of their damned minds and always have been. Get yourself together, please. Your antics are tiresome.
Brian Jones - So I notice that every time you post one of these and get any friction, you copy the thread's posts and add them to your own personal page under the comic. Are you actually participating here for collaborative discussion, education, and learning or are you just looking to get friction so you can post it as content to your own site for your own benefit?
Because if you're just here to generate content for yourself off of exploiting our effort in discussions, you can take that grifter-class capitalist nonsense somewhere else.
Muhammad Rasheed - @Brian... Long ago, I lost an excellent thread discussion due to some jackass deleting it because he got all up in his ignorant feelings about the flow of the conversation. Since then I make sure to capture threads for my own reference material whenever they get some length to them. This is particularly important to me because 1) I value active and engaged dialog as a potent learning tool, and 2) I use these discussions as fuel for my editorial cartoon oeuvre.
Joe Montana - Socialism aiming at communism does not break them off a piece of the wealth; it appropriates the capital in totum for all, with literally none left for not only the 1%, but any capitalist or would-be capitalist.
Muhammad Rasheed - The truth is the opposite of what you typed. That 100 yr old leftist bamboozle has handed the world to the 1% grifter class.
Joe Montana - You might want to study history more carefully. That 1% class existed long before there was any proletarian state on the planet.
Muhammad Rasheed - "Handed the world to the 1% grifter class" implies that the class already existed, bud, but were further empowered by you beyond what they had any right to and against the wishes of the people themselves, whom the left has betrayed. You may wish to improve your reading comprehension skills.
Joe Montana - Your grasp of history is counterfactual and conspiratorial.
Muhammad Rasheed - lol Your grasp of history is nonexistent.
Muhammad Rasheed - Go away, Joe.
Brian Jones - Are you aware that the Socialist Party views welfare programs as product of capitalism. So you aren't wrong in painting welfare as a stop-gap of the 1%. But depending on the reading this also comes across like the liberal concept that the New Deal was socialist.
Statement of Principles of the Socialist Party USA
Under welfare capitalism, a reserve pool of people is kept under-educated, under-skilled and unemployed, largely along racial and gender lines, to exert pressure on those who are employed and on organized labor. The employed pay for this knife that capitalism holds to their throats by being taxed to fund welfare programs to maintain the unemployed and their children. In this way the working class is divided against itself; those with jobs and those without are separated by resentment and fear. In socialism, full employment is realized for everyone who wants to work.
Muhammad Rasheed - Brian wrote: “Are you aware that the Socialist Party views welfare programs as product of capitalism.”
I’m aware that groups like that routinely vilify capitalism on behalf of the 1% grifter class whose ideologies they mimic ad support. Welfare programs are band-aid measures invented by the 1% that enable them to maintain their wealth & power monopoly without triggering the artificially created poor class into rioting.
Brian wrote: “So you aren't wrong in painting welfare as a stop-gap of the 1%. But depending on the reading this also comes across like the liberal concept that the New Deal was socialist.”
The New Deal was a racist exclusionary scheme designed to strengthen the white racist aristocracy.
