A political outburst from Adam Hughes

Hughes may be a talented artist, but is sadly also a very one-sided leftist. He recently posted the following anti-Trump tirade:

Well since he decided to throw his hat into the political ring, let me ask: does this ensure he'll never support a demagogue like Jeremiah Wright, the so-called reverend who declared "God damn America"? Because if he's got zero interest in condemning somebody like that, then there's no point in his Trump-bashing, which noticeably isn't backed up with facts.

J. Scott Campbell, while we're on the topic, chimed in, and somebody said:

Agreed. Especially if that's all they care about, and if that's all they can say. Say, what about Tim Kaine? If they really think Trump's just a dimwit, wouldn't Kaine be the same?

When somebody argued that Hughes should just stick to illustrating, he said:

Okay, I'll give him credit for refraining from politics whenever he does, but when he does go into such junk, he really knows how to emerge a huge disappointment. Then, another tweeter made what looked like a sarcastic comment about SJWs, and Hughes said:

The point that can be made is that it's incomprehensible why artists like Hughes, who've been persecuted by SJWs, would refuse to take a good look at how a lot of them support leftist politics like he does, and ponder how his own side is turning against him for petty reasons. And why it may not do any good to support the left if they're going to allow such awful folks to undermine his ability to get assignments and ensure they won't be censored by the cowards now running Marvel, for one. Oddly enough, the tweeter may have actually been a leftist herself, and he then said:


It's certainly odd, since it did look like sarcasm at first glance. Nevertheless, the point could still be made that sticking with the side that may be failing to stand up to such disgraces is inexplicable, and doesn't help artists worried about SJW persecution one bit.

Oh, please. If that's the case, isn't it monsters like Iran's Hassan Rouhani who are forcing everybody into the open? Say, why not add the Swedish government's phony feminists who kowtowed to the tyrants?

Not always, but it's still galling when all they can do is be monomaniacal and concern themselves only with the POTUS and none of the other serious issues the world's facing.

Hughes is a talented artist, but espousing such pathetic standings as he does makes for a frustrating experience, and risks making it difficult for some fans to feel sorry whenever artists like him are attacked by SJWs.

It's also what not opening your wallet is for.
