Canary in the Coal Mine

A jack-booted, goose-stepping fascist guides the slavering Mogen David to devour the widow and the orphan. By Pat Oliphant:
Called "the most influential cartoonist now working" by The New York Times, Pat Oliphant occupies a unique position among today’s editorial cartoonists: Widely considered the dean of the profession, he is one of its sharpest, most daring practitioners.
Oliphant works under the auspices of the New York Times. This was published Wednesday, in the Washington Post. (On which website it is oddly not currently available.)

When casual antisemitism goes mainstream, it's time to clean your gun.

Have an economic crisis? Perhaps it's the hook-nosed Jew bankers (again):

We know Congresswoman Waters is a psychotic, but that's not really the point. She was neither admonished nor questioned by her committee chairman: "Ms. Waters, could the Chair inquire as to why your questions relate only to Goldman Sachs, and not also to JPMorgan-Chase, Bank of America, or Wells Fargo?" Despicable.

Cassandra's curse was not the prophetic gift (itself a sufficient burden), but that her accurate prophecies would not be believed, and the future ruin she saw could not be forestalled.

We've seen this movie before, and we know where this plot line takes us. "Unfruitful" from the July, 1936, issue of Der Stürmer:

The caption reads: "She belongs to the church, she belongs to Satan. Both are lost to the German race." Moral debauchery and Catholicism are one from the State's point of view.

But that couldn't happen here.
