On Tuesday, a scum-sucking, maggot-infested putrid piece of pale pig flesh cleverly disguised as a Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist with the Washington Post, (with apologies to maggots and pigs everywhere) posted a cartoon depicting the two young daughters of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, as monkeys.
The disgusting cartoon was apparently in response to a parody ad in which Cruz read to his children.
That was all Ann Telnaes needed to attack his children.
Here’s her tweet — which was deleted about the time this post was published:
Just so you know, these are the two little children Telnaes depicted as monkeys:
The Post apparently came under heavy fire for the blatantly racist and despicable cartoon and pulled it with this explanation:
Editor’s note from Fred Hiatt: It’s generally been the policy of our editorial section to leave children out of it. I failed to look at this cartoon before it was published. I understand why Ann thought an exception to the policy was warranted in this case, but I do not agree.
According to the Post, Telnaes won a “Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning in 2001.”
The Post pulled her cartoon, but it still lives on Twitter.
Cruz responded to the cartoon with this:

Reaction to the disgusting post was swift and visceral:
@AnnTelnaes Looking for your cartoon of the Obamas' daughters drawn as monkeys. Hm. Can't find it.

@AnnTelnaes when did family values become a joke? He's a proud father. Or is that no longer normal?

It only matters is the target is a Democrat. If it’s a Republican, all bets are off.
Anyone else find @AnnTelnaes 's obsession with mocking the Cruz kids kinda creepy?

It’s beyond creepy. It’s sick.
.@AnnTelnaes Hilarious. Now do the same cartoon but with Sasha and Malia Obama.

It’ll never happen.
Just imagine. Just imagine if the party ID were switched. I mean, just imagine. https://t.co/xtP0ZFtvOo

We don’t need to imagine.
Do you equate other children to monkeys or just those with a parent of color? @AnnTelnaes

Again, that depends on the political party of the target. Democrats are off-limits. Republicans, especially conservatives, are fair game.
Incidents like this are the reason we refer to the so-called mainstream media as the “Democrat-media complex” and it’s also one reason why so many in the country literally hate the media.
It’s a good thing the Post yanked the cartoon, but it also needs to post a very public apology to Cruz, his children and all conservatives.
