From The Blaze:

After the Indianapolis Star published a political cartoon on Friday that was decidedly against President Barack Obama’s executive action on immigration reform, the paper’s executive editor Jeff Taylor said many readers were offended and called it “racist.”

So on Saturday the Star pulled the political cartoon by Gary Varvel. Taylor said Varvel “did not intend to be racially insensitive in his attempt to express his strong views” about the issue but added that ”we erred in publishing it.”

More from Taylor’s column in the Star:

The cartoon depicted an immigrant family climbing through a window of a white family’s home as Thanksgiving dinner was served. I was uncomfortable with the depiction when I saw it after it was posted. We initially decided to leave the cartoon posted to allow readers to comment and because material can never truly be eliminated once it is circulating on the web. But we are removing the cartoon from the opinion section of our website, as well as an earlier version posted on Facebook that showed one character with a mustache.

The second version of the cartoon showed the character without a mustache, but every other element appeared the same as the first version.

“This action is not a comment on the issue of illegal immigration or a statement about Gary’s right to express his opinions strongly,” Taylor continued. “We encourage and support diverse opinion. But the depictions in this case were inappropriate; his point could have been expressed in other ways.”

**************************************************************

“……………..his point could have been expressed in other ways.”

So, um is this what they mean?

“Yes, we know he’s a cartoonist, but he could have given a speech at the local Tea Party headquarters. Or did an interpretive dance. Or thought about it a little more. Or submitted the proper forms. We so regret the lasting image of that mustache, on the internet forever. We are so very, very sorry. We are sure that when the President enacts Net Neutrality, images like that disgusting one with a brown-skinned man with a mustache will be…..on the list of things that are not……neutral.”

Wait for it.
