Turkey – So Angry About Cartoons

Here’s Turkey’s president by our Dutch cartoonist Bart van Leeuwen.

There’s another cartoon controversy that is causing friction for France. This time it is Turkey’s president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan who is outraged by a cartoon that he claims he hasn’t seen, that graces the cover of Charlie Hebdo’s current edition. Turkey has been outraged recently by French president Macron’s defense of offensive cartoons as “freedom of expression” in the wake of the murder of a French school teacher who showed Charlie Hebdo cartoons in his class as part of a civics lesson. Erdogan accused Macron of being mentally unhinged, leading France to withdraw their ambassador to Turkey and both presidents are carrying on a worsening dispute, with Macron backed by European leaders and Erdogan backed by protesting Muslim countries.

The cartoon that offends Erdogan shows him in his underwear, lifting the skirt of a traditionally dressed Muslim woman, exposing her bare bottom, with Erdogan exclaiming, “OOH! THE PROPHET!” Both figures appear to be drinking beverages containing alcohol, a taboo for observant Muslims. The cartoon is signed “Alice,” a cartoonist who I don’t know, who my French cartoonist friends don’t know, and who is not credited in any news reports that I’ve seen.

“Insulting the president” is a crime in Turkey and Erdogan has a history of retaliating against people who insult him; more than 36,000 people faced criminal investigation and thousands have been imprisoned for insulting Erdogan in 2019, according to a report from the Stockholm Center for Freedom.

Erdogan’s lawyer filed a criminal complaint against Charlie Hebdo’s management with Ankara’s prosecutor stating that the Charlie Hebdo cover cartoon amounted to “criminal libel” that is “not covered by freedom of expression,” according to state news agency Anadolu. Turkey is now promoting a boycott of French products. Protests against Charlie Hebdo cartoons are again springing up in a number of Muslim countries, focusing their ire on French President Emmanual Macron and demanding that cartoons criticizing the Prophet Muhammad should be banned in Europe.  Here’s a good article from Britain’s Daily Mail.

Erdogan has overseen the mass imprisonment and suppression of journalists who are critical of his regime.  Lately, he seems to be picking a variety of fights with many countries about different issues.

Turkish cartoonist Musa Kart recently spent a year and a half in jail for his drawings. Kart famously drew a cartoon depicting Erdogan as an orange cat that landed him in prison on an earlier occasion. Cartoonists around the world drew cartoons in support of Kart; here’s one that I drew in support of Kart when he was in prison.

I did a quick search and I found that we have 716 cartoons about Erdogan on PoliticalCartoons.com. It is no surprise that Erdogan’s short fuse and suppression of the press has made him a favorite target for cartoonists around the world.

Freedom of expression is often brought up in defense of offensive cartoons, especially against tyrants who seek to ban speech that offends them. That said, freedom of expression is not a reason to publish offensive cartoons. Cartoonists have the freedom to be asses, but we should choose not to be asses.

I would have killed the cartoon on the cover of the current Charlie Hebdo issue if it had been submitted to me – but it is a top story in the news today, so I posted it here in our blog. It is the crazy reaction to the cartoon that makes the cartoon newsworthy.

Here is a nice selection from our vast, Erdogan cartoon archive.

Church Superspreaders

Here’s my new one about COVID super spreader churches.

This is a recurring theme, where big, conservative churches that take a Trumpy, casual attitude about the pandemic, insist on holding their indoor, massless, mass events with singing, no distancing, and lots of disease spreading.

This church/hands thing is a kind of standard for editorial cartoonists, like the Hokey Pokey or the theme from Gilligan’s Island, or the Cats Cradle game. Some years ago I drew a similar cartoon about Obamacare’s contraceptive mandate, and I lifted the first panel for the new cartoon. The perspective on the hands in the first panel is odd, because we usually see the other side, with the thumbs as doors, but that is the view of the person who is performing this, and not the observer, and I like flipping it open with the thumbs on the close side. Yes, I think about all this stuff.

The oldie wasn’t a very strong cartoon. The first panel was fine, but I didn’t like the awkward second panel hands – that needed a redo, so I drew my own hands today. (There seems to be some disagreement about whether the “people” should properly be presented upright or upside-down.)

And I drew some coronavirus and assembled this in Photoshop.

That’s your recipe for a church pandemic cartoon.

Voter Daydream

This is my new one about a voter’s daydream …

I had some mixed feelings about this one because it is a little simple and odd for an editorial cartoon, but I like cartoons with character and body language, which is just about all that this cartoon consists of.

The CagleCartoonists are doing great work recently!  Here are my favorites from the past few days.

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – October 24, 2020

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of last week (October 17th, through October 24th, 2020). As usual, drawings of President Trump were not popular with newspaper editors, but a tiny Trump sneaked into the Top Ten in John Cole‘s #4 debate cartoon.  Again this week the Top Ten cartoons dominated newspaper reprints as less popular cartoons got little or no ink and editors flocked to the same cartoons.

Dave Whamond had a fantastic week with three cartoons in the Top Ten – Dave’s #1 cartoon was a hit that ranks in the top five of the year.  John Cole also had an impressive week with two cartoons in the Top Ten.

Congratulations to the other CagleCartoonists with Top Ten cartoons this week: Gary McCoy,  John Darkow,  Jeff Koterba, Randy Enos and Chris Weyant.

Our Top Ten is a measure of how many editors choose to reprint each of our cartoons, from the 62 cartoonists in our CagleCartoons.com syndication package. Just about half of America’s daily, paid circulation newspapers (around 700 papers) subscribe to CagleCartoons.com

Heard Immunity

I don’t draw many crowd scenes, but the dangerous, maskless, science denying Trump crowds seem to be the story today. Here’s a detail from my new cartoon …

And here’s my new cartoon about “Heard Immunity” with a Trump rally-herd of COVID fodder.

And here’s the rough sketch. It’s crazy that people want to see the sketches.

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – October 17, 2020

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of last week (October 10th, through October 17th, 2020). As usual, no drawings of President Trump were popular with newspaper editors.  Typically 20% of the cartoons get 80% of the reprints; this week it is more like 10% of the cartoons getting 90% of the reprints as less popular cartoons got little or no ink and editors flocked to the same cartoons.

My own cartoon from last Sunday was #1 this week, by a big margin; in fact, it is the most reprinted cartoon since we starting keeping comparative download stats from subscribing newspaper editors at the beginning of the year.

Dave Whamond also stood well above the crowd with a #2 cartoon that would have been a strong #1 in any other week. Dave and I both had two cartoons on the Top Ten this week. Congratulations to the other cartoonists who made the unusually hot Top Ten this week, Dave Fitzsimmons, Steve Sack, Dave Granlund, Rick McKee, Kevin Siers and RJ Matson.

Our Top Ten is a measure of how many editors choose to reprint each of our cartoons, from the 62 cartoonists in our CagleCartoons.com syndication package. Just about half of America’s daily, paid circulation newspapers (around 700 papers) subscribe to CagleCartoons.com

COVID Halloween

Halloween cartoons are always popular, and this year it will be a COVID Halloween. I’m a little early with my new cartoon, but I’m far from the first this year. I expect there will be many more.  See my archive.

 

Dave Whamond’s Halloween Grinch cartoon is crazy popular with editors, and has a shot at #1 on this week’s Top Ten.

 

Dave Granlund’s COVID Halloween cartoon is crazy popular too.

 

Our realistic, Dutch, CagleCartoonist, Bart van Leeuwen made a great Halloween Grim Reaper Trump.

We’ll post some more Halloween cartoons when we have a good batch.

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of last week (October 3rd, through October 10th, 2020). As usual, no drawings of President Trump were popular with editors, even with Trump dominating the news every day.

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – October 3, 2020

Correction 10/14/20: I have to apologize for making an error in the Top Ten for this week, and it was a big error. John Darkow actually had both the #1 and #2 cartoons of the week, and both by a large margin – those darn stats! I have added the missing top cartoon as a second #1 cartoon, with a special congratulations to John for the incredible feat of capping the list with two mega-popular cartoons!

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of last week (September 23rd through October 3rd, 2020). The news about President Trump contracting COVID generated a lot of cartoons on Friday, but none of them made the Top Ten. There was a lot of criticism of Trump’s overly aggressive debate performance, but not in the cartoons that editors chose to publish about the debate.

Congratulations to John Darkow for his #1 cartoon that outpaced the pack by a wide margin this week. Dave Granlund also had a great week with two cartoons on the list. Dave Whamond and Jeff Koterba continued their long streaks of Top Ten appearances. We had an unusual three way tie for ninth place so there are eleven cartoons on the list this week.

Kudos to the other cartoonists who made our list of the cartoons most published in newspapers this week, Steve Sack, Rick McKee, Gary McCoy, Randy Enos – and me.

Our Top Ten is a measure of how many editors choose to reprint each of our cartoons, from the 62 cartoonists in our CagleCartoons.com syndication package. Just about half of America’s daily, paid circulation newspapers (around 700 papers) subscribe to CagleCartoons.com.

#1

CORRECTED 10/14/20: Here is the correction, added as John’s second #1 cartoon of the week.  John Darkow has TWO cartoons in first place, both outpacing the pack by a big margin.

#1

John Darkow is in first place, outpacing the pack by a big margin.

#2

Dave Whamond follows with the #2 cartoon. Editors were interested only in debate cartoons that were even handed in their criticism of Trump and Biden.

 

#3

Steve Sack takes 3rd place. The pandemic’s effect on sports is a favorite topic for editors.

#4

Dave Granlund had a strong week with two cartoons in the Top Ten.

 

#5

Rick McKee takes 5th place with the only cartoon about the Supreme Court fight.

 

#6

I nabbed 6th place. The news cycle didn’t leave much space for the cartoons about Trump’s taxes. See my Daryl Cagle archive here..

 

#7

Dave Granlund’s even handed debate cartoon is his second cartoon in the Top Ten.

 

#7

Eighth place goes to Jeff Koterba with another even handed debate cartoon.

 

#9

Randy Enos shares a three way tie for 9th place with a pandemic at school cartoon, which has been the favorite topic of editors for months.

 

#9

Here is the first of two, conservative Gary McCoy cartoons that are tied for 9th place.

 

#9

Here is Gary McCoy’s second cartoon that is tied for 9th place.

Trump has COVID

Late last night we got the news that President Trump and First Lady Melania have tested positive for Coronavirus. Social media exploded with sarcasm and righteous indignation because of the president’s history of refusing to wear a mask, his super spreader, maskless rallies and his many statements diminishing the importance of the pandemic. The cartoons started coming in this morning – here is mine.

 

Here’s another one inspired by the laughter on social media, from our Dutch cartoonist, Jos Collignon.

This one is from David Fitzsimmons.

 

Here’s one from Bob Englehart.

 

And Dave Granlund.

 

This one is from Jeff Koterba.

 

Our conservative, Trump supporting cartoonist, Gary McCoy, almost never draws president Trump; this morning he made an exception.


Our reader supported site, Cagle.com, still needs you!  Journalism is threatened with the pandemic that has shuttered newspaper advertisers. Some pundits predict that a large percentage of newspapers won’t survive the pandemic economic slump, and as newspapers sink, so do editorial cartoonists who depend on newspapers, and along with them, our Cagle.com site, that our small, sinking syndicate largely supports, along with our fans.

The world needs political cartoonists more now than ever. Please consider supporting Cagle.com and visit Cagle.com/heroes.  We need you! Don’t let the cartoons die!
