Welcome to the 2021 Political Cartoons Award Thread!
The Kellies (previously known as the Gaybies) are our annual celebration of the best and worst in political cartooning.

The initial purpose of this thread is to collect any nominations not made in the original thread (I will gather go back and gather all the previous nominations). Please read the 2021 thread and share your nominations here. Feel free to discuss your nominations and reasoning. You don't have to nominate in every category, and comics can be nominated in multiple categories at once.

New This Year: Kelly's Kommandos
I need volunteers to help get wiki sours up to date. Let me know if you can help with adding material to the wiki; it's a big task, so I'm looking to split it up and do it in phases. Members of the Kelly Kommando Kre- uh, I mean, the people who help out will get a free forums upgrade of your choice.

God drat it, I had thought the search function indexing error was fixed. The in-thread search still doesn't index text within tags, meaning anyone who, for example, bolded the word "nomination" wasn't getting caught up in my search and indexing. I'm going to have to manually search all 500 pages of the previous year's thread. This may cause some additional delays. It also means we have a lot more nominees than previously anticipated.

Progress report: having had to almost restart from scratch, I am 20% of the way through.

I use a spreadsheet and tabulation that can partially auto-format the input into the structure of the nominations post. I'll probably stick with what I've got for this year, then I'd be grateful if I can share it with you and we can see how it may be improved.

JeremoudCorbynejad

Sure thing.

I have an idea (which is now half-materialised because I was bored this morning) for extracting the data at least. The human input is:

1. Open page of thread
2. Ctrl+U, Ctrl+A, Ctrl+C (i.e. view page source, copy all of it to the clipboard)
3. Click button in spreadsheet

And then a bunch of code mines the data for nominations, providing usernames, post content, image links etc etc.

You could even automate those 3 steps with... er... i forget the name of the software but it allows you to script keypresses etc.

If you send me what you got so far I might even be able to provide something later today (I am ill, so I'm sitting around at home doing nothing). Otherwise, I will await next time :)

We're almost ready for voting to begin! However, we currently have very few nominees in the following kategories- they're all right on the border at present.

Worst "Two Things Happened" Cartoon
Best AGC Interpretation
Best Overall
Worst Obituary



To keep them viable, please nominate additional cartoons from these kategories. You can nominate cartoons by PMing me, or by posting here - don't worry about making sure your nominations are unique, I'll handle that.

Kellies Voting: Part 1

It begins! We have too many nominees, and too many comments about the nominees (see: Garrison), so I have to split voting into three sets. Voting on this set of nominees will continue until March 13.

How to vote
Each category has a letter or letter combo, and each cartoon has a number.
Make a post with the number of each entry you're voting for and what category it's in. I'll take either the letter or the category name.
You get one vote per category, and you do not have to vote in all categories. If you want to change your vote or add a vote in a category you haven't already voted in, please edit your existing post!

Prizes
The creator of the winning "Best Edit/Parody" and the user with the most winning nominations will both receive a forums upgrade of their choice! The first person to nominate a cartoon gets credit.

Kellies Kategories and Nominees
Notes: I removed or condensed a couple categories because they got no or only one nomination. Listed dates are posting date for the image. Unless otherwise stated, any text following a nominee is context from its original posting or nomination -either commentary from the thread and the nominator, or an accompanying statement by the artist.

CICADAS FOR THE WIN!

Cicadas have been in the news recently. Once every seventeen years, the cicadas hatch and emerge to enjoy the summer. The insects lay their eggs, die off, and begin the seventeen year cycle anew.

This year they are ready to rumble. They don’t call them the “17” year cicada for nothing.

The cicadas know Biden is a weak, illegitimate president who is part of a regime determined to convert America into a globalist, Marxist, disaster. A few days ago a cicada swam took out the Biden press plane as they flew into the engines, delaying the fight to Europe.

Then as the Cheater in Chief was giving his departure speech, a kamikaze cicada hit Biden in the neck causing him to squeal to the press, “A Big Bug just got me.”

It is reassuring to know our insect friends are red pilled!

Are they expected to sweep the midterms?) but some outside force (not pictured or labelled) is putting a stop to it and the radical left will be dead forever. Either that or 2022 is going to safely contain the radical left forever, as containing things forever is something that eggs famously do instead of incubating them until they're ready to come out

Least Concealed Bigotry (general)

BG-22 Joel Pett, 7/29/2021

[vox sez: nominated for “Least Concealed Bigotry (gender)”]

quote:

I interpreted it three times before I finally settled on the meaning I think it's supposed to have

The first: Guy on the right is really happy he can gently caress without having kids
The second: Guy is really happy this will make women he doesn't like sterile
The (probably) actual interpretation: Guy is happy it will make pro-vaxxers sterile

It's just a bad loving comic no matter how you slice it

quote:

I think you're wrong on all tries, or at least the last one. No one who says ""what if the vaccine makes me sterile?"" aloud is or ever has been or will be pro-vaccine. The woman in the cartoon is a solid pro-pandemiccer and the man, confusingly, wishes her belief was true so that she couldn't have progeny and not vaccinate them. Which is a paradox, because if she won't have the vaccine then she won't become sterile.

At least there's a good doggy. Who's a good doggy? Yes, you are! Yes you ARE!

Least Concealed Bigotry (LGBT+)
BLGBT-25 Gary McCoy, 1/27/2021

quote:

Get hosed forever McCoy. Also the loving gall of this rear end in a top hat whining about rubber stamping EOs after four years of Trump. Maybe don’t mention penmanship class in your cartoon if your own writing consists of barely legible squiggles. Also I know "don't touch the poop" is an (un?) official thread rule, but I went looking for this shitbag to tell him to go gently caress himself to his face. He's on twitter, but his entire feed consists of bot posts about how many people followed and unfollowed him on a given day; his political cartoons are not on Gocomics; and I tracked down his syndication page, on which this strip and several others have exactly zero comments. Is this guy published anywhere? Because I'm getting some real strong "shouting slurs into the void" vibes from him. (Also gently caress you again. Just for good measure.)

BLGBT-28 Ben Garrison, 2/28/2021

quote:

Okay, so, new Garrison, and holy gently caress is it transphobic.

quote:

THERE ARE TWO GENDERS, MALE AND FEMALE. THAT IS ALL- CLAIMS OF ANYTHING ELSE IS MENTAL ILLNESS Senator Rand Paul questioned health nominee Rachel Levine on the process of gender ‘reassignment.’ Only there is no such thing as reassignment.

Wishful thinking and medical mutilation won’t change the fundamental DNA structure that resides in every cell of our bodies. Our sex is part of who we are—not an ‘assignment.’

One’s sex cannot be changed. Neither by means of surgery, nor hormones.

Yet for some reason we live in an age where the ’trans’ delusion is getting ’normalized.’ Wishful thinking is now considered science. We can’t debate the issue without being smeared as a hater or ’transphobic.’ Transgender people are the new sacred cows. One can no longer reasonably question the delusion. Government said so. Stooges representing science said so. Biden said so. Burly boys can claim to be girls and compete alongside them in sporting events—and they usually win. They also get to go into the girls’ locker rooms and we’re not supposed to question that, either.

As a libertarian I don’t care if men and women think they can transmogrify into the opposite sex. If they are adults and not hurting others, that’s their business. I do have a problem when it comes to minors wanting trans surgery and big government overruling parents who don’t want their kids mutilated. Teenagers aren’t mature enough to make such a life-changing and irreversible decision. It’s also why I don’t think children should be allowed to vote. They lack life experience and will usually vote for socialism and free stuff.

Senator Paul knows it’s impossible to ’transition’ from one sex to the opposite and he asked Levine simple and straightforward questions about whether we should allow children to make decisions that have permanent and major health implications—both mental and physical. Levine dithered. Paul finally stated it as clearly as he could:

“I’m alarmed that you’re not willing to say absolutely that minors shouldn’t be making decisions to amputate their breasts or to amputate their genitalia. For most of our history, we have believed that minors don’t have full rights and that parents need to be involved, so I’m alarmed that you won’t say with certainty that minors should not have the ability to make the decision to take hormones that will affect them for the rest of their life. Will you make a more firm decision on whether or not minors should be involved in these decisions?”

Levine still refused to answer the question and repeated “her” memorized statement:

“Senator, transgender medicine is a very complex and nuanced field. And if confirmed to the position of Assistant Secretary of Health, I would certainly be pleased to come to your office and talk with you and your staff about the standards of care and the complexity of this field.”

It’s not a complex and nuanced field. It’s not medicine. It’s doing harm to the bodies of children and doctors are supposed to do no harm. Why wouldn’t she answer the question? Her disingenuous response disqualifies her from office.

Paul was quickly attacked as being transphobic. We aren’t supposed to question the supposed science behind transgenderism because the trans people’s feelings might get hurt. To protect their feelings, any criticism of the transgender fad is labeled as ‘hate speech.’ Trans people have become a special caste and immune from any criticism whatsoever. A book that explained the transgender delusion was recently removed from Amazon. They said the book was ‘hate speech.’ This type of online book burning sets a very dangerous precedent.

We must be able to criticize government officials regardless of their race, religion, or sexual orientation. We must be able to debate and ask questions without fear of getting cancelled by identity politics.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to find two beehives to wear over my chest because I’m very current with the latest in transgender fashion.

quote:

Also Worst Opposite of Reality

BLGBT-32 Michael Ramirez, 6/24/2021

quote:

For those who don’t know, Ratjen refers to Heinrich Ratjen, an intersex man who was AFAB due to some confusion regarding identifying his genitals. He went on to compete in the women’s team Olympics, and this was rescinded when everything came to light. I am using male pronouns as Ratjen seemed comfortable identifying as a male, but this all happened nearly 100 years ago so who knows. He did identify as a man until his death, so I’ll go off that. He later tried spinning his story as the Nazis forcing him to compete on the women’s team to defeat Jewish competition to avoid embarrassing Hitler’s regime, but seems to just be a fabrication…that got used as the basis of a movie in 2009!

No idea how much Ramirez knows about Ratjen, but this could go from “gently caress you” from thinking trans people approve of that whole situation, or “gently caress yooooooooou” for thinking trans people would approve a literal Nazi plot to cheat against Jewish people. Considering he likely saw the movie, gently caress yooooooooou, Ramirez.

I love how Stantis actually brings up ignoring the AIDS epidemic and tries to follow it up with ""But on balance""

Like, even if you ignore the horrifying politics surrounding the decision, over 700,000 people have died in the US alone, many of these deaths could have been prevented if decisive action had been taken early on.
The fact that he actively ignored the epidemic is already unforgivable.

But when you look at the politics you realize that he and the other higher ups seriously hoped that the epidemic would be the answer to gays existing.
They wanted AIDS to kill off the gay community, so they stood by and did nothing.
So, to put this simply:

You can't balance out genocide you gently caress!

BR-53 Ben Garrison, 3/13/2021

quote:

George Floyd had a violent, drug-riddled criminal history. He was convicted of armed robbery and served time in prison. Big and muscular, he worked as a bouncer at a Minneapolis night club.

Still, when I saw him trapped under the knee of a cop and begging for mercy, I was outraged. Clearly the police officer had choked Floyd to death. I drew a cartoon to express my disgust. I thought it was an open and shut case—shocking police brutality, then murder.

Yet at the time I didn’t know the entire story. Tucker Carlson recently showed additional video footage on his program. Something was clearly wrong with Floyd as he sat in his car and begged not to be shot. He was already panicking before the police laid a finger on him. The cops calmly promised they wouldn’t shoot him—they simply wanted to question him for passing a counterfeit bill. Floyd kept begging for mercy and the police eventually asked him if he was ‘on’ something. It was that obvious. It was unlikely Floyd was even fit to drive.

As it turned out, Floyd had a tremendous amount of Fentanyl in his body, along with methamphetamine. Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid drug known to be very dangerous. Most of it is produced in China and shipped to America via Mexico.

To my surprise, the police officer was using acceptable and department-approved procedure with his knee maneuver. Supposedly it was ’safe.’ That strikes me as absurd, but a drug addled Floyd could easily have died from Fentanyl. The stress he was under probably triggered life-ending symptoms.

Here are symptoms of a Fentanyl overdose:

Low blood pressure
Drowsiness
Dizziness
Limp body
Slowed or stopped breathing
Decreased heart rate
Reduced or loss of consciousness
Coma

Of course, the left and their ‘fact checking’ sites will tell us drugs had nothing to do with Floyd’s death. His martyrdom must be protected! The socialists used Floyd’s death to incite the BLM and Antifa to burn, loot, and destroy cities across America last summer. We were told Floyd was a saint, a great father, and an all-around exemplary human being. Clearly he wasn’t the latter, but regardless, he didn’t deserve to die in the street in such a manner. The City of Minneapolis admitted this when they awarded Floyd’s family a record $27 million payout.

If the police officer is found not guilty, look for the socialists to go on a violent rampage once again.

Superspreader In Chief
Biden’s open border policy has become a major superspreader event while he imposes more restrictions on American citizens.

BR-68 David Horsey, 8/21/2021

quote:

Just now, the news media and Congress are obsessed with the images of a chaotic American retreat from Afghanistan, but, if the only lesson Americans learn from the nation’s longest war is that the exit needed to be better planned, we may be doomed to repeat this 20-year tragedy.

The larger lesson should have been learned in Vietnam when so many of our political leaders, foreign policy experts and military commanders let a limited mission expand into an attempt to build a Jeffersonian Democracy in a foreign land caught up in civil war. In Vietnam, we thought throwing enough money and troops at the problem would, eventually, fix it. It did not work there and it did not work in Afghanistan.

A very poor, tribal land like Afghanistan was never a very good prospect for nation building and all the hundreds of billions of dollars funneled into that country failed to create a sustainable, modern democracy. What that vast flood of money did do was fuel massive corruption among the ruling elite, including the president who recently fled the capital, Kabul, reportedly with an enormous cache of cash.

Our high-tech, superbly-trained military is the envy of the world, but, as one former state department official observed recently, over two decades our troops fought the same war 20 times. Commanders would rotate in and out every year, each one claiming to have made progress but, in reality, having merely engaged in another 12-month game of cat and mouse with the Taliban.

And the Taliban, like the Viet Cong, were fighting on their own turf, prepared for a generational battle. They simply had to wait until Americans got weary of the fight and departed. Unless the United States is prepared to act like a classical empire and impose its will by maintaining permanent hegemony in far flung regions of the world, this will always be the result.

It is hubris and folly to believe that American wealth and power can always achieve any starry-eyed mission that our leaders and experts concoct. From Ronald Reagan through the administrations of the next six presidents, the U.S. has meddled in Afghanistan, usually with idealistic intentions. There were some successes, like the killing of Osama bin Laden, but the biggest social reform — the partial emancipation of Afghani women — was totally dependent on the U.S. military presence and the other supposed achievement — the creation of a large, modernized Afghan army — evaporated as soon as American advisors and air power were withdrawn.

At last, we have a president who has recognized that we cannot do for the Afghanis what they will not do for themselves. If Joe Biden deserves blame for the messiness of this moment, he also deserves credit for seeing the hard truth more clearly than his predecessors and then acting upon it.

quote:

I think you need the accompanying rant to really emphasis the racism. Upon first look, I thought the backwards country statement was just something the imperialists would say, and not a sincere belief held by Horsey.

STOLEN ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES

As the invasion worsens along our southern border, Joe Biden took decisive action. He went back on vacation.

Joe and his Marxist masters are intentionally destroying America in order to build it back better. How do thousands of Haitian poor achieve that? It’s unlikely they’re doctors, lawyers, or educators. It’s more likely they are criminals, gang members, or people here to collect free stuff.

We are supposed to be a country of laws and we lave immigration laws, but Biden and his operatives refuse to enforce the laws of the Constitution. Instead they operate their spin machine and tell us everything in just fine. Biden did that in Afghanistan and now he’s doing it here by refusing to allow drone coverage of the invasion.

Where will this invasion head next? Certainly, they won’t be camping out on the White House lawn. More likely you’ll see them in your neighborhood. Look for crime to skyrocket.

Some comments: Worst "A Thing Happened" I almost gave to the Rob Smith Jr. cartoon, but it at least took effort to draw that lovely racist thing, and it took effort to spin "Cleveland baseball team changes name" into that loving thing. Stiglich though took no effort. Draw a Santa face, slap an "OMICRON" on it, done by 10 AM.

Worst LGBT+ bigotry cartoon was a hard choice, there were some especially vile contenders. That specific Branco won out for me not only for its gross depiction of trans women (which was in many of the other ones) but also for pushing the lie of "trans activists showing school children gay porn" poo poo.

Least concealed bigotry (race) was also a really loving hard choice, I was prepared to give it to McCoy right off the bat for that Stacey Abrams caricature, then I saw the Ramirez about "burning and looting" and went "nothing can possibly beat this one." And then I saw the Indigenous People's Day cartoon and it was no contest, at least burning a police station is a thing one could be mad about regardless of the context. But getting mad at honoring native peoples and responding by portraying them as violent savages? That's some loving racism right there.

Lipstick Apathy

A-9 - Others are lazier, others are even less important, but this gets my pick for being especially racist. It could have made multiple categories.
AD-16 - Gorrell tier.
BAGC-20 - A correct response to Ramirez ramping it up especially hard these days. Nice work on those wood textures though.
BG-22 - (Kramer-slides in out of nowhere with some incel poo poo)
BLGBT - Too close to pick. I hope Hell is real.
BO-48 - The strongest and clearest nominee even if it's not all that original, but shout-out to that metal as gently caress drawing of death. And Benson, that is a copy of your best comic ever and it's a pretty anemic adaptation for this metaphor. What happened to you, man?
BR-78 - Stiff competition, but I'm picking this one just because I'm pretty sure he's implying that the newscaster and the suspect are the same person. That nose is practically copypasted. It's also possible Stiglich can't draw more than one black man, tbf.
C-92 - stick to wood, Ramirez. That's not even a person.
CT-103 - Blatant erasure of the history of civil rights agitation. But you're right, we're still fighting -- "Chinese virus," anyone?

Ramirez is Branco levels of human garbage this year. Obviously he's always been, but now he's being open about it. It's like he lost interest in the veneer of respectability.

Worst "A Thing Happened" cartoon: A-1 – There are probably worse from a triviality standpoint, but, eh… if nothing else, I doubt Harry pronounces 'duty' the American way.

Worst "Two Things Happened" cartoon: AD-17 – I'm actually kind of surprised that this is the only one of these here.

Best AGC interpretation: BAGC-18 – Locks. How do they work?

Least concealed bigotry (general): BG-22 – Seriously, she's not even doing anything for him to be whinging about. Beyond existing, at any rate.

Least concealed bigotry (LGBT+): BLGBT-38 – Wait, this isn't the one I nominated. See, I told you that Prickly City wouldn't have much chance, even if it still raises the bile inside of me. When it comes to 'least concealed' though, Branco just crams everything and the kitchen sink into this one, giving it the edge (for lack of a better word) over the rest of this poo poo.

Best overall: BO-48

Least concealed bigotry (race): BR-61 – A difficult choice, but this one here, god, it so heavy handed it's like a parody.

Worst caricature: C-80 – Ramirez and Rall seem like easy mode here, so I figured I'd opt for something different. I'm not sure which caricature we're meant to be referring to here (I assume Oprah's), but they're all dreadful in some capacity.

Worst concern trolling: CT-102 – Another difficult choice. I kept being tempted by the Lesters but nearly went for that Bok at the end. Instead we're getting Ramirez for basically the reasons mentioned in the nom.
