Mark Knight fires it back across the net!

Twitter has probably had to add a server or five after Knight depicted Serena Williams stomping her racquet in childish rage:

On Tuesday night, @knightcartoons had been mentioned almost 74,000 times on Twitter, including retweets — an increase of 88,900 per cent from the day before.

Criticism for Williams has come from tennis champion Martina Navratilova.

“We cannot measure ourselves by what we think we should also be able to get away with,” Navratilova wrote. “In fact, this is the sort of behaviour that no one should be engaging in on the court.”

Quite so. Let’s put the sportman – er, sportspersonship back into sport.

Balls from every direction for Mark Knight.

Humble antipodean cartoonist draws wrathful response from world famous children’s author!

Well done on reducing one of the greatest sportswomen alive to racist and sexist tropes and turning a second great sportswoman into a faceless prop.

J K Rowling is not amused by Knight’s depiction of Serena Williams chucking a tanty. Other members of the Perpetually Ready To Be Offended League have also spoken out.

In other words, Knight has PO’d all the right people. And he’s not backing down. From his Twitter page:

Well Julie here’s a cartoon I drew a few days before when Australian male tennis player Kyrgios at the US Open was behaving badly. Don’t bring gender into it when it’s all about behaviour. I’ll accept your apology in writing.

As Knight rightly says, it’s about bad behaviour. Not gender. Not race.
His editor is sticking by him too. That’s a rare sight these days.

Mark Knight aces it.

Knight is cartoonist for Melbourne’s Herald Sun. His latest cartoons are on display here, and you can find him on Facebook.

RIPing in style.

Not one of mine.

Much as been said of Burt’s many action roles today. But he did comedy pretty well too.
I remember one of Bob Hope’s tv shows back in the 70s. Bob and Burt did a spoof on Papillon. Quoting from memory:..
Bob (as Papillon): What’s the warden like here?
Burt (as Louis Dega): Fantastic. He’ll slap you round and punch you every day.
Bob: What’s fantastic about that?
Burt: He’s got great hands!

Just like Hollywood, the colleges are learning the hard way.

So I was rewatching Sargon of Akkad’s video Jordan Peterson was right, and it got me wondering about all those festering pus holes of SJW indoctrination that were so prominent in the media a couple of years ago.

They’re not so prominent now.

They’re not so populated, either.

Schools like Evergreen State College, the University of Missouri and Oberlin College are all notorious for their tendency to pander to social justice activists — and now they are paying the price. Although college enrollment is slightly declining throughout the country, these institutions have seen massive declines over just the past few years.

It’s reason to hope. Just imagine the numbers going in the opposite direction… if you dare.

Baseballs as bait. Smart thinking there, sir.

As soon as I saw this picture, I knew it had motivator potential. All I had to do was wait for the idea to develop. Not a process I can accelerate.

Pin ups from left (I hope I got the names right):
Shannon, Jennifer, Vana, Dianna, Gina, Jennifer.

You know where to get your calendars, don’t you?

A visa for Manning? I say yes.

Chelsea Manning has been denied a visa for a speaking tour of Australia.

I believe this is wrong. Manning should be given the visa.
Yes, Manning is a traitor. But if we refuse the visa we turn the traitor into a martyr. And give a stick to the left which they will happily use for years and years.
We demanded visas for Stefan Molyneux and Lauren Southern. We can’t refuse a visa to Manning.
Remember Kathy ‘Trump’s head’ Griffin? She made a tour of Australia last year just a few months after that photo. She came and went almost unnoticed.
I look forward to watching the MSM gush ‘huge crowds for Manning’ over audiences that would barely fill a phone booth.

He has a very particular set of skills.

Skills he has acquired over a very long career.

Skills that make him a nightmare for obnoxious out-of-towners.
