Petition Demands That Suppressed UT Cartoonist Stephanie Eisner, Victim of the Racist Trayvon Martin Witch Hunt, be Reinstated!


By Nicholas Stix

[“Cartoonist Stephanie Eisner Gets Fired for Showing Too Much Honesty in Racial Fairy Tale Pic Depicting Trayvon Martin Hoax.”]

I signed the petition because:

1. The Daily Texan violated Ms. Eisner’s First Amendment rights. The Daily Texan is not a private organization. It is publicly funded, in a public institution, and sought to silence Ms. Eisner for purely political reasons. All of that is forbidden by the First Amendment; and

2. I agree with the content of Eisner’s cartoon. The Trayvon Martin Case is one of the vilest race hoaxes of the past 25 years, it seeks to railroad a heroic man, George Zimmerman, and help violent criminals, and its influence is due almost entirely to its support by media figures who have used the tried-and-true weapons of propaganda: Omissions, distortions, and outright lies. Ms. Eisner was continuing the great tradition of American political cartoonists in attacking corrupt institutions, but turning her attention to the corrupt media itself.

If I could, I’d nominate Stephanie Eisner for a Pulitzer Prize.

I wrote the above argument on the petition form.

An additional reason for signing the petition, which I made implicitly in the previous item, is to oppose slavery.

The overwhelming majority—I would estimate about 90 percent—believe that whites should be their slaves. I am opposed to slavery. Most blacks believe that whites may only say what they want them to say. Racist blacks at the University of Texas got Stephanie Eisner illegally fired, because she spoke without their permission, and said what they do not want any white to say.

I was not born a slave, and have no intention of becoming one.

However, before you read the petition text at the bottom, or hit the link to sign the petition, please consider the following advice.

The petition is at, which though reportedly not explicitly ideological, is funded by radical leftwing union, SEIU. The petition requires that you give your street address, zip code, and city, before you can sign it. That information will then be visible to anyone who reads your profile. Leftwing terrorists have previously ruined the lives of people who opposed them, such as the gay Nazis who went after supporters of California’s Prop. 8, which re-banned gay “marriage.”

I dealt with this by posting an obviously fake address and zip code. At least one signatory posted an obviously fake, obscene city.

Petition text:

Why This Is Important

We, the concerned citizens of the University of Texas at Austin community and elsewhere, were stunned by the decision of the editorial board of The Daily Texan to fire cartoonist Stephanie Eisner on March 28, 2012.

Ms. Eisner drew a cartoon related to the Travyon Martin shooting incident in Florida, and this cartoon was published in The Daily Texan on March 27. Her cartoon lamented the national media framing the narrative of the shooting in simplistic and racialist terms.

Unfortunately, a minority within the campus community perceived racism within the cartoon itself and in the resultant controversy pressured the editorial staff to fire Eisner. Disappointingly, the editorial board complied to this vitriolic and narrow-minded minority and it removed Ms. Eisner from its staff.

The decision is an insult to journalistic independence, our national values of free speech and a free press, and the right to dissent from popular or prevailing viewpoints. Regardless of one's views of the cartoon itself, we find it alarming that Ms. Eisner would be shunned and silenced for expressing her views.

These values are not compatible with the liberal democratic values of our society. Ms. Eisner should be applauded for her courage and integrity, and we call upon the editorial board to reinstate her to her position as cartoonist.

We do not discount the stresses and tribulations that journalists face in defending their viewpoints to hostile readership.

Kurt Westergaard, the Danish author of the controversial Prophet Muhammad cartoons, has faced repeated attempts on his life for cartoons far more incendiary and offensive than anything Ms. Eisner has ever drawn. Yet his newspaper responded by republishing his cartoons --- an act of defiance that spoke volumes of a free society that did not hesitate to defend its values in the face of opprobrium or even violence.

We call on The Daily Texan to affirm its commitment to liberal democratic values and recognition of journalistic courage. We call on The Daily Texan to reinstate Ms. Eisner.

the american people are vastly made up of lemmings who run with the crowd. i was initially outraged when the media released an initially skewed story that Zimmerman was chasing the young man against the advice of the 911 operator. I was further outraged when images of Trayvon at what couldn't be more than 14 were being displayed... and then I remembered the Florida "kissing incident" where the media got viral by claiming that the police were called to a school for no other reason than a kiss. A point that the school quickly denied, and the media ignored. Not much of a story without outrage. So I took a deep breath and waited. Now I believe there should be a release of records, even a trial if that is what the public demands. However, I seriously doubt this was anything but self-defense, despite the still skewed media coverage.

Anyone who reads my words, please don't be a lemming:

"Some men relate what they think, as what they know; some men of confused memories, and habitual inaccuracy, ascribe to one man what belongs to another; and some talk on without thought or care. A few men are sufficient to broach falsehoods, which are afterwards innocently diffused by successive relaters.

It is more from carelessness about the truth, than from intention of lying that there is so much falsehood in the world." - Samuel Johnson

I hate it when minorities victimize themselves and liberals indulge them (I am mexican), firing the cartoonist makes us fit less rather than doing us a favor.

plus a totally get her point, tha fact that the kid was a minority does not mean that he was descriminated and abused!!!

You call Zimmerman a hero without having any sworn testimony or any real idea of what happened?

You are a kook.

You assume, falsely, that I have no “real idea of what happened.”

And since when must one wait on “sworn testimony,” to write on an incident?

Have you made the same complaints to all the alleged journalists promoting the Trayvon Martin Hoax, not to mention Martin’s gold digging parents and their lying lawyers?

I didn’t think so.

You are a moron.
