Whitman County Gazette - Serving Whitman County since 1877

Offensive cartoon


February 27, 2020

Gary Varvel’s political cartoon on the opinion page of the Gazette on Feb. 20, 2020, depicting presidential candidate Bernie Sanders in a wheelchair with a Soviet Union flag draped over his lap, being pushed off a cliff by a donkey, is offensive to many Americans and a gross distortion of reality. This sort of political opinion is not at all helpful in furthering reasonable political discourse in our nation.
