Time to display my “race“ card in time for the 2020 American election! Nothing rankles more than to hear people, especially in the media, speak of the US President as the “Leader of the free world”. Utter arrogant nonsense while grievously insulting to those who understand how leaders are actually elected. Millions of people living in the ‘free world’ have yet to cast a ballot for or against this so called leader. This odious moniker conjures up the notion that American Exceptionalism still exists despite evidence to the contrary, especially in their current state of national disarray. Die-hard defenders of the status quo continue to wallow in the stank pool of American supremacist arrogance and entitlement like a quivering, dangling string of snot on the lips of the American apologist.
This design echoes my ‘Axis of Weasels’ playing card series when the US invaded Iraq, unprovoked, in 2003. At the time, I was forcibly removed from eBay for peddling my lino-cuts on their auction site. That caused a kerfuffle on the internet and began a rather intense, albeit short rollercoaster ride on the World Wide Web.
It boggles that one of the most powerful countries in the world – after China – can elect a narcissistic bumpkin like Donald Trump, and then have the audacity to call him the leader of the free world.
