Tammany controlled many city organizations through favoritism, bribery, and bias. The most prominent city organization controlled by Tammany Hall was the police department. At the time, the New York City Board of Police Commissioners consisted of four members who were under Tammany’s control while having the authority of overseeing the city’s police. One of their many corrupt acts was the use of their authority in order to get Tammany Hall members jobs on the force or promotions for those already in the department.
The cartoon illustrates how much more fit and prepared the other candidates are in comparison to Trump, and argues that the reason Trump would lose is because he is unfit for the presidency. The illustrator uses logos, an “appeal to logic” in rhetoric, by depicting Trump as an out of shape Olympian wearing arm floats to suggest that Trump is ill-equipped to compete in the waters of politics
The viewpoint of the political cartoon is that no one takes Al Gore seriously. The word serious is in the cartoon and AL Gore is dressed as a penguin, which is funny. The cartoon is horatian because Al Gore dressed in a penguin suit is humorous. The content creator used sarcasm and caricature in the cartoon. The sarcastic part of the cartoon is Obama asking us to take global warming seriously. Caricature is used by Al Gore dressed as a penguin.
The political cartoon shown here is strongly satirizing against the control of children’s education in Texas by the Board of Education. Through the Board’s selection of what is included in children’s learning material, Texas kids in schools become biased towards certain political views. The textbooks here all contain extreme conservative attitudes, such as disbelief in climate change with the title, “BRRRRR! Our chilly planet”, and emphasis on anglo-american christianity “saving the day” for a free-market capitalist economy. Ironically, the book “Numbers Lie (Just like liberals!)” is paired with a false math equation on the bottom left of the cartoon, as 2+2 does not equal 5. However, this is significant in the sense that textbooks which are
This political cartoon about Trump uses many rhetorical devices to relay a message to anyone who would so care to look at this particular ad about him having allegedly stolen Putin’s shirt. I believe that the author of this political cartoon was trying to persuade to believe Trump is a bad candidate for the presidency by showing us he has ties with the Russian dictator Vladimir Putin. Do to this persuasion; the effectiveness of this passage is greatly achieved using logos and pathos because it explains how terrible it is to let the leader of the free world have a great relationship with the country that cannot stand us, Russia.
Herblock's cartoon could be criticised for potential inaccuracies in his political cartoon, Transported. For example, claiming "war, poverty, and prejudice" are happening, but to what extent could it be true for the whole earth? Herblock uses logos in presenting commonly known facts, but this probably wouldn't stand up to more in depth analysis. Furthermore, although there was an element of entertainment to the actual moon landings, the men who performed these tasks faced extreme danger, from the moment they took off to the time they landed back at home. However, with his use of pathos, it is very hard to deny the truth of the cartoon. The cartoon has very strong pathos that get the message across to the reader. Earth focusing all of its attention
This political cartoon ties into my theme since it shows how the man is stressing over the news and thoughts and how he must relieve himself from it all. Not only that, but it also ties into the passage Why I Went to the Woods by Henry David Thoreau. This can be proven as it is seen in the passage when the author says that the character would mine and burrow their way through the hills in front of them. With this being a metaphor, the author uses figurative language as he explains how the character in the passage is trying to get away from all of their bad thoughts, trying to leave all of his stress behind but the stress just continues to pile up, just like a hill. This also ties in with my Theme and my political cartoon since they all show
In this image by Mr. Adam Zyglis published on December 21, 2012 at eaglecartoons.com it showed a character named Ralphie from a classic movie “Christmas Story.” The author is using this image of Ralphie from the cartoon to show his audience that even though we teach our generation about the risk of lethal weapons. Some individuals will not follow the rules or laws and may hurt themselves or others around them. Likewise, it relates the same way for the USA, as Americans buy more guns, more violence and mass shootings will occur. Mr. Zyglis clearly uses strategies of Logos, Pathos, Ethos, and Kairos to convince his American audience of ever growing gun culture we live
The political cartoon depicts a middle-aged parent telling his daughter that he loves her, but he loves fossil fuels more. Published on August 10th of 2017, the cartoon is produced in the wake of an ongoing worldwide debate, regarding the usage of fossil fuels. Intense emotional appeal, pathos, is used to emphasize the devastating problem that is the intensive usage of fossil fuels. Specifically, the author appeals to parental instinct, the instinct to protect your children at all costs. The child portrayed in the cartoon is a metaphor for the entire young generation. Due to the fact that the well-being and security of the child is dependent upon the future economy, the child also acts as a metaphor for the future workforce,. In the cartoon,
The primary source that I chose are two different cartoons that show the change in the family life of the 1950’s. These two different views of women in these cartoons are brought together to show how post-war time changed the lives of single women and mothers from working women back to an ideal house wife life. The picture on the left is of Rosie, who was created as the new “working women”. Now that lots of the men in the family, who were the breadwinners are being sent out to war. The women of the family needed to step up to be the “breadwinners”, ordinarily there was no income coming in to the family without the husband. This shifts when the men come back from wartime, nevertheless are expecting to take their jobs back, which they ensure. The women are sent back to their homes to be once again the idea house wife.
Firstly, the image contains a group of derogatory words and phrases shaped in form a hand around his neck as if it was about to strangle him. The boy is suffocating through the abusive words used for him like moron, useless, worthless. The word forming the hand illustrates a sense of power and control. The background behind the child is a combination of white and grey color which is often associated with depressive and saddened mood. While looking more carefully, the watcher can see the motto which is "Verbal abuse is still abuse". The motto is composed in white which appears differently in relation to the dark hand. Finally, at the bottom of the image there is a slogan saying, “Help Juvenile Protective Association stop all child abuse http://www.juvenile.org”. e. In this way, this powerful and disturbing advertisement obviously aims to inform and convince audience that words can hurt just as much as fists and feet can.
In the cartoon, President Barack Obama is presented in a stereotypical and degrading way. He is drawn to have a very prominent round nose, and much emphasis is placed on his very “large ears”. With this, he is also depicted with a tiny head, potentially hinting at a small brain. In
In the cartoon, the first noticeable item would be the phrase “Love trumps hate” spread over three different panels. The phrase derives from the 2016 election between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump; many of Clinton’s supporters viewed, and an overwhelming majority still view, Donald Trump as a person who incites hate and violence. In response to him inflammatory rhetoric and often controversial platform, Clinton supporters coined the phrase “love trumps hate.” It is an obvious play on the President’s name; an attempt to make his name forever synonymous with hate and violence. However, following the days of the election, and for many months prior, those same people began rioting and inciting violence towards Trump and his supporters. Many people were physically assaulted and hospitalized due to the actions of “loving” Clinton supporters because they exercised their first amendment right to wear a shirt or a hat to show support of their candidate.
My general audience will be young Americans and Americans, who want change. Creating a political cartoon will help spread awareness of this problem. The younger generation of United States’ can help resolve the problems of congress if they are informed about the political system. Later in life, these young Americans will know more about United States government to help fix the problems with the system. A political cartoon will intrigue the young Americans and teach them more about government; the young people will be between the ages of fourteen and sixteen. This approach will give young Americans two to four years of preparation to make choices at the age of eighteen. The next type of audience that can make a difference is Americans who want
In addition to this, Chicane has in the upper right-hand corner ‘Trump has his finger on the button.’ In only seven words, Mr. Winter is able to portrait a powerful sketch on the future of the world in the hands of the current administration. People from across the political spectrum have agreed that Mr. Trump’s mannerisms and behavior is not only grotesque, but also self-destructive. With his impulse and urge to bring about radical change, the meaning behind this cartoon sketch may not be so
