A Symbol Better Suited For Democrats

Normally, we would just gloss over lazy memeing like this, but the concept of this illustration is so profoundly backwards that we had no choice but to break it down a bit further.

According to this cartoon, the Republican Party should drop the elephant as its official mascot in favor of the deer tick — because apparently, conservatism is about bleeding people dry and leaving them diseased.

Not surprisingly, this was one of the top posts over at Reddit’s ‘political humor’ page at the time of writing.

Not included in this image is any serious critique of any Republican policy or conservative idea. It’s not even sure which major issue this cartoon is referring to.

If you want to talk about a political party bleeding people dry, wouldn’t the faction that wants to raise taxes on every American (see Bernie Sanders’ policy on payroll taxes) be the more appropriate target? Why is the party of “leave me alone” in question here?
