The Fogies have, by design, avoided a lot of political content in their comics and commentary. We just like to make observations about aging and the 21st century culture that dims our setting sun.
But guess what? When lunatics make judgments about what is funny or "acceptable" in creative work, then anything and everything becomes political. And you best be on their side when the judgments come down.
So, this is political, whether we like it or not.
R.I.P., brave colleagues.
