It’s missing the two or three pro-2A Democrats who saw this coming years ago and are noping the whole thing, and the big-talking Socialist RA members who are conspicuously absent.
The modern version would have chess pieces for the Dems and a pigeon for the Repubs.
“Never play chess with a pigeon. The pigeon just knocks all the pieces over. Then shits all over the board. Then struts around like it won.”
Edited for indefinite article.
MAGA cultists should have that stupid red gimme hat (in green of course!)
I long for the time when that stupid red hat of the 21st century is as reviled as that stupid red arm band of the 20th century. Sadly I think that they are counting on winning it in the state legislatures, so guns will only come into play where they clearly lost but can’t cheat to win (ok ok everywhere).
Supreme court figure should be holding a beer bottle and crying like a baby.
I don’t see a piece named “Liberals with Guns”. There are actually lots of them, you would just never know it. Liberals with Guns don’t feel the need to open carry or prance around in camo like incels about to blow their own balls off. The piece would look like some guy in a VMware hoody, jeans and flip flops or motorcycle boots. No need to telegraph gun ownership.
Not in this Franklin Mint ad, but I remember one that said “you can stop at any time!”. As if a partial chess set is something you would want.
But the comic is really riffing off of old comic book ads like this:
That’s because that is a completely different set of pieces. This set is just for one side, & as others have noted, is missing various pieces.
That’s because they look [and are] normal.
It’s bad strategy to do so. Far from being intimidating, it merely makes you a target.
So does that stupid red hat, confederate/Q/cop flag, etc.
RE: this set…
It is missing numerous Fascist Radio/TV Show Hosts [and caskets for those that croaked from Covid]. Seems like Zuckerberg should be there somewhere, too.
ETA: So should Putin.
This is brilliant. Also sad but true about the 1000 Dems who don’t know it’s a war.
I believe those 1000 call themselves “Moderates” - as if…
I live in a 60% red, 40% blue county and can tell which of my neighbors are my “resupply”. And I’ll bet that more than 90% of the houses that fly a “Thin Blue Line” flag have lots of 9mm ammo.
hugely ironic of course, since it means they don’t trust the cops to protect them even in the slightest
As well as the guns to use that ammo, sure.
The flag advertises HERE BE GUNS.
Advertising a target, IOW.
The same way a ‘This Property Protected by &BurglarAlarmCompany’ sign tells thieves there is stuff worth stealing inside…
The other side is all drones, I presume.
Can you get the vehicles set with a cargo lorry of horse de-wormer and a Tanker with Hydroxochloroquine? Also some over large pick up trucks with large exhaust pipes and flags dragging on the floor?
