The New York Times has just announced that they are no longer going to be publishing political cartoons. This decision comes after a political cartoon depicting a blind Donald Trump being led by a Benjamin Netanyahu guide dog was published in the international edition of their paper. The cartoon made Jews very angry because it revealed the truth of how America’s foreign policy serves the interest of Israel before America.

The fact that the Jews who run this paper are ending political cartoons entirely reveals how nervous they are about their staff publishing material that does not fit in lockstep with Jewish narratives. Political cartoons have been a staple of the newspaper industry for a very long time. For them to ban the publication of them outright is a pretty extreme measure to take.
