    I do not get it. Employment law is not based on the 2nd amendment, I understand that, how is it funny?

    It's based on this xkcd comic which endorses cancel culture. Termination due to political opinions is a thing.

    I still do not get it. The xkcd one talks about the limits of the 2nd amendment. Yours starts talking about the limits of the 2nd amendment, then gets to employment discrimination law, realises it is a completely different field, says wait, and then....

    Has someone (me?) got their wires crossed? Isn't the 2nd Amendment about arming bears (or... something)?

    It's talking about the nature of free speech in general, not any specific law.

    You're right. Speech is the subject of the 1st Amendment, not the 2nd.

    Please don't arm the bears, they are very dangerous already!

    AfD ogre bragging that the AfD has the most votes in the Brandenburg and Saxony state elections.

    While the math might be off, the main message is still somewhat correct :/.

    The total number being above 50% is definitely part of the message, and that's a lie. It's a lot less of a victory when you have 25.5%.

    Is it just me, or can the guy not math? I would swear that simply adding the percentages from 2 separate entities together like that doesn't actually show a valid/real result...

    That the AfD polled second in both states (both former East Germany), though -- that's worrying, rather than amusing...

    I beat you to the second by forty minutes, but technically, JR Marat is the only cartoon on this page.
