Ben Garrison is probably America’s angriest cartoonist.
He describes himself as a self-reliant, self-financed political cartoonist and libertarian, known for creating politically contentious cartoons disliked by the establishment, advocating for the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
Like me, Garrison operates independently of mainstream media; he has no editor telling him what to do or inside which Overton paramatres he must stay. His work is funded through donations, subsrciptions, and other decentralised channels.
He has been the target of an ongoing smear campaign, by online trolls, to ruin his career. Ironically, this attack has bolstered his career, probably as a result of the Barbara Streisand Effect combined with the axiom that degeneracy ultimately loses.
Fighting with the establishment
In 2017, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) accused Garrison of “antisemitism” for a cartoon depicting (Jewish) billionaire George Soros as a puppet master.
Is Garrison entirely wrong?
Furthermore, as Jewish historian Norman Finkelstein pointed out, the term ‘antisemitic’ is used to silence dissenting views, much like ‘racist’ or ‘bigot’ or [insert the fashionable word].
Nevertheless, his work has been banned from several websites and social media platforms.
Garrison is also an oil painter.
