Sports journalism is often a pretty conservative field, especially when it comes to talk radio. Tank McNamara, the sports-themed comic strip — I say “the.” Maybe there’s another one, I dunno, but it’s the only one I know about. Anyhow.
The current storyline is about Tank McNamara infiltrating the Minutemen, that charming anti-immigration group that’s walking the thin line between citizen activism and vigilante activity. Cause the biggest threat to the United States today is illegal Mexican immigration.
The writer has some fairly stinging things to say about the Minutemen. “Well, some of these guys have gone over the top. They’ve become total whack jobs. And I should know. I’m one of them. A ‘Minuteman,’ not a whack job.” Interesting stuff. I dunno if the comic strip has been this political before, although I have vague memories of it being so from time to time.
I don’t really have much to say about this, I’m just thinking it’ll be interesting to read the strip and keep an eye out for fallout.
