22. Too true

This cartoon could mean two different things.

Pointing out how many overreact to that slogan without knowing what it means..which is what I suspect the artist was going for

or

How the slogan itself is yet another example of the good guys using a presumptive, and obfuscated line. Giving too much cognitive credit to anyone not in the fold.

And how that failure to communicate, is used by those in the RW media (who know full well what it means) to define it any way they want. Even BLM is not perfect. But I understand how difficult it would be to summarize hundreds of years of systematic repression in a few words. Still, one side sees that as Black Lives Matter..... Too. But because of how truncated it is, the other side can be indoctrinated to react with: Hey, don't All Lives Matter?
