What The Comic Is: A man notices his car’s fuel gauge has hit the Empty signal. He decides that he should stop for gas, though his thought is cut short as he notices he is currently at the intersection of MLK Drive and Malcolm X Street. The final panel shows the man’s foot ramming pedal to the metal. 

What StoneToss Actually Thinks: Streets named after important black figures are bad neighborhoods, and by greater extension that naming a street after a black person ‘ruins’ the street by attracting black people to live on it.
Why It’s Fucking Stupid: This is a relatively shallow comic for StoneToss, it’s just base racism that implies diversity ruins the country, specifically the “white people” country of the USA. Racemixing bad, diveristy bad, etc. Obviously the man needs gas but he doesn’t want to risk stopping at streets named after black people because the implication is that the streets are bad neighborhoods. This is implying that either the streets were renamed (i.e., “black people take over American culture”) and then turned into a bad neighborhood (i.e., “black people moved there”) or it’s that the streets were renamed because black people were already living there (i.e., “the (((government))) placates ghettos by naming streets after black people”). As usual, it doesn’t really matter which theory StoneToss subscribes to, because either way it’s fucking stupid. 

The image name of the comic may be a reference to the racist motto “Around blacks, never/don’t relax”. The mouse over text is a reference to the 2005 rap song “Ridin’” by Chamillionare, a song about police using racial profiling to hound blacks. The song, however, has lyrics that profess to the artist selling drugs and searching for people to sell to. The song’s opening hook, “They see me rollin’, they hatin’/Patrollin’ and tryna catch me ridin’ dirty” is singing about racial profiling by police, though StoneToss co-opts this and morphs it into a justification for racial profiling: that the neighborhoods are bad and therefore that is why the police profile them. It is also a joke that the guy is rolling out of the intersection, driving through it without stopping. 

The description is a play on the term “Intersectionality”, a concept that suggests aspects of people’s skin color, gender, sexuality, physical traits, etc. can influence advantages and disadvantages within social circles and communities. That StoneToss is aware of the concept of intersectionality and yet still believes black people are genetically and fundamentally different/inferior on a base level compared to white people is not surprising, because StoneToss is fucking stupid.

What The Comic Is: A gay man scrolls Twitter on his phone, coming across an alt-righter meme account that posts homophobic comments about disliking gay people. The man responds that profession of homophobia means the person behind the meme account is actually gay themselves, and calls them a Nazi. The gay man, feeling smug with this insult, then cuddles closer to his body pillow that is revealed to have Adolf Hitler printed on it.
What StoneToss Actually Thinks: Leftists are Nazis. 

Why It’s Fucking Stupid: Forget that studies show that severe homophobic stances are strongly linked with repressed homosexual urges, thus giving a good degree of credence to “homophobes are closeted homosexuals”. That’s not really what this comic is about, anyways. StoneToss doesn’t really care about that, he’s more concerned with trying to expose a (as always, nonexistent) hypocrisy he feels exists with Leftists in their “projection” of the term ‘Nazi’. It’s a really old and tired talking point from bigots on the Right that the Nazi party were actually liberal socialists and Left-leaning. This is incredibly untrue, and even though the Nazi party’s full name (National Socialist German Workers’ Party, or Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei) includes the word “socialist”, the Nazis were hard far-right extremists and were expressly against almost any form of liberalism, as their entire government was built on the basis of population control. This quickly and effectively renders any bad faith argument that “The Nazi’s were socialist/liberal” to shreds, and it’s safe to say they were certainly nowhere near the left side of political spectrum. 

Bigots like StoneToss live in a clown world where the Nazis really were socialists, because it’s easy fodder for them to construct a baby’s first safe space hugbox reality with. Leftists rightfully dub fascism seen in the Right as being akin to Nazism, and the intelligent individuals on the Right believe they have the perfect retort: “That’s just projectionism, in reality, it’s the LEFT who are the REAL Nazis!“. This seemingly provides an effective method to hand wash themselves of bigotry and fascism while also turning the narrative around on their morally righteous opponents. Unfortunately, simple tenants of reality get in the way of this. Too bad for StoneToss that while strong evidence shows homophobia is linked with repressed homosexuality, there are zero such studies linking an aversion and opposition to Nazis as being linked to repressed Nazi-esque tendencies. Sad!

On another level the comic is trying to be a “Both Sides” argument; maybe some people are homophobic, but the Left is bigoted as well! You can’t even disavow and hate or wish to harm gay people, black people, Jewish people, disabled people, women, political opponents or immigrants or else Leftists call you a Nazi!! Both sides, people.
StoneToss actually has two sides, himself. Yeah, it’s true. One side is an idiot and the other side is also an idiot.  

One thought on “StoneToss: Episode 55

  1. *Stonetoss, after months of intensive deliberation.*: “I can safely conclude that there is no difference between the GAYS and Nazis. One may even be worse. Hint: it’s not the Nazis.”
