Some latent Racists have "Called the Kettle Black" . . .
3 February 2017 | by (The Gutters of Baltimore) – See all my reviews

. . . in regard to BUDDY OF THE APES, a widely misunderstood entry in a long-running series of brief cartoons from Warner Bros. designed to warn Americans of the (then) Far Future of their upcoming Calamities, Catastrophes, Cataclysms, and Apocalypti. Warner's crack team of prognosticators in its Animated Shorts Seers division (aka, The Looney Tuners) often camouflaged their prophecies so that they could slip past Deplorable Demagogues intact in order to reach their target audience of U.S. Citizens who can Make a Difference. Therefore, the trained eye will have no trouble discerning that the hero of this story--Buddy--is perfectly disguised to represent Al Sharpton, with his safari allies drawn from Nature's Best carefully cloaked to represent Black Lives Matter and its affiliated friends. As these innocent, upbeat, and productive community members are celebrating Buddy's rescue of the toddler gorilla from a raging river and otherwise minding their own business, an Alt.Right Conservative spying on them from a treetop licks his lips and yodels for his obese chief. From their florid complexion, it's not hard to Decrypt the fact that this deplorable pair are meant to denote closet Ku Klux Klan Imperial Wizards Jeff Sessions and Steve Bannon. They round up a Nose-Ringed native, symbolizing Red Commie KGB master plotter Vlad "Mad Dog" Putin's puppet, Rump, made a feeble slave by his Russian Loan Shark. They also recruit a couple of Natives playing Ping Pong with their Paddle Faces; these ladies are dead ringers for Secretary of Misinformation Betsy DeVos and the Lying Queen, Kellyanne Conway. As the gang of Sessions, Bannon, Rump, DeVos, and Conway come charging at the innocent Native Citizens, Hell-bent upon taking away their ObamaCare, Planned Parenthood, Medicare, and Medicaid so that they can roast the resulting corpses, Sharpton\Buddy has his hippo friend fire coconut cannonballs at Bannon's butt, as the rest of the Good Guy's allies make short work of the Alt.Right savages. Even if Putin inexplicably is allowed to install his puppet to trash America's Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Environment with bogus laws, nuclear options, and gag rules, Warner is encouraging We Union-carded normal, average Working Class 99 Per Centers to emulate the bravery shown here in BUDDY OF THE APES and settle the Alt.Right's hash once and for all by confiscating their ill-gotten weapons and assets (to pay off our national debt, equally dividing up the remainder for reparations checks), followed up by deporting this basket of 40 million Deplorables up North to Canada for a seven-generation Cooling Off Period.
