The Absurd Times Honoring Carlos Latuff

Perhaps the best political cartoonist, certainly the best on international affairs, is Carlos Latuff. He has always been on the side of the persecuted, the oppressed, the victims. It may be for this reason that he has been awarded as the Third Most Anti-Semitic in the world. The list makes no mention of Noam Chomsky or any other prominent critics of the oppression of Zionism against the Palestinians, but does place Carlos as number three, just below the Muslim Brotherhood and the Iranian regime. Hm, so we have the head of Egypt, the head of Iran, and then Calos Latuff!

I am telling you, I am not making this up. Here is the complete top ten:

1. Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood.

2. The Iranian Regime.

3. Brazilian Cartoonist, Carlos LaTuff.

4. The Soccer Fans of Europe.

5. “Svoboda”, the Ukraine’s Freedom Party

6. Greece’s “Golden Dawn” Party.

7. Hungary’s Far-Right party, “Jobbik”

8. Norway, for honoring promoter of Anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.

9. Jacob Augstein, Anti-Semitic Media Hack.

10. ‘Calypso Louie’ Farrakhan, for ratcheting up his Jew hatin’ in 2012.

He beat out all the soccer (football) fans of Europe! That constitutes millions! I have never counted them, but I’m sure there are over several million.

He beat out the Ukranian Freedom Party. Who? Say what?

In fact, the only other name I recognize easily is Louis Farrakhan, and I really don’t have much to say about him. I do think he is funny at times and that his obsession with numerology was weird when I heard it, but never saw him as a threat.

Anyway, we here at the Absurd Times just want to take this opportunity to congratulate Carlos and his recognition!

Being on this list is akin to being on Nixon’s enemies list – many felt mortified at being left out.

Thank you Carlos for fighting the good fight!
