Stand up cartoons in Dutch and English (German coming up)
Don't fear for laughter, laugh at your fears!
He isn't in my opinion. He just throws some dangerous stuff in the middle of the market place and runs off
Hi Nemo, I'm not that for communicating by way of reactions on a cartoon. Let's put it this way: 19% of the country follows a men who's fund of Mein Kampf, who sees the Islam as not welcome in our country, who has had contact with Le Pen and several other creepy doctrine guys, who campaigned on during the tram assault in Utrecht and blamed it on the foreigners. And then we still have Wilders who's lost a lot of his voters to this new man. Yes, The Netherlands is in the grasps of fascism, even though a cordon sanitaire could stall time
No Pete, it's just a frustrated criminal. I follow the news in my own country very close. He didn't even go to the mosque. I did change the title of this cartoon though, because I was too quick following some news that the victims were related to the killer. But that isn't the case.
Ha Nemo: you noticed!
Hi Nemo, There;s a law enforced where bosses can have their employees work 400 extra hours and start payng them after two years (Ithink now it is 150 days andpaying after 1 year). This time even the Orbán fans are protesting against him. Actually, he's doing it to keep the wages low and make it interesting for foreign countries (especially Germany) to invest
I see Enrico already answered this (I think) but yes BoiseEd: in most countries in Europe it is obligitary to have such vests in your car to be better seen when you have a car breakdown on the higway. That's why everyone has such vests ready to be worn. And since the movement started about the expensive diesel for cars it is even more fitting.
Wow, two Italians like the cartoon on Italy. Must be doing something right! Grazie!
Rbel, a German?
Symplicity and beauty. Nice work Pete!
Hi Pete and Ramses. Thanks for the comments. Funny thing: today someone reacted on a Dutch site to this cartoon, saying: Not funny. What is he thinking? That this was meant to be funny? THAT'S funny!
Mary, Pete, Enrico, Shahid and Ramses: thanks for the votes and the compliments!
Thanks all fot the votes and positive comments!
Wow, thanks Pete...
It's a bit sad Rider, that it''s only your opinion that we are allowed to draw. Finally Israel is portrayed as sweet as a pussy can be and still it's wrong.
Hello all. Rider is obviously defending his own country and he has a right to do that. The cartoon just shows a part of the truth of the conflict: Israel being bigger and trying to keep safety by repression (doesn't work anymore). My next cartoon will be about how Hamas indeed is also not helping the Palestine people with it's useless aggressive attitude.
This was a good thought Frederico!
Nice cartoon Ramzy. Shows how progress is being stopped by old connections and schemes. And Israel has already a history of lots of UN-resolutions that are used as toiletpaper without the UN acting on that. Is progress giving terrorists what they want? No, but progress is giving and and taking for the benifit off all people.
