Good Evening My Fellow Insurrectionists,

Your spirited, but mostly peaceful pal u/Space_Force here and I am most honored to welcome you all to a very special AMA (Ask Me Anything) with based cartoon merchant, Mr. Ben Garrison!

Ben has done a few of these for us going back to the old Reddit days and was kind enough to stop in for a spell and chat with you beautiful and salty bastards.

For the five of you on here who don't know who Ben is, he's an independant, politically incorrect political cartoonist who pulls no punches and takes no shit. His work has been published at Breitbart, InfoWars, Politico, Slate, ZeroHedge, The Federalist Papers and shared many times here and millions of times all over the normie interwebs. Lots of people say they speak truth to power, Ben does it for a living.

You can check out and buy some of Ben's amazing work over at his site, https://grrrgraphics.com Prints are suitable for framing and guaranteed to piss off any Democrat within ten feet of it.

And now, ladies and gentlepedes, on behalf of the establishment, it is my sincere pleasure to welcome to the stage, Mr. Ben Garrison.

Isn't that the one that got him uninvited from the White House meeting with creators about censorship? Talk about ironic.

I've always wanted to know the name of the CUCK staffer who snubbed Ben.

LibertarianXian 24 points ago +24 / -0

That was actually my first of Ben's outstanding cartoons and still my favorite! It couldn't be less relevant today!

I also think it's a cultural treasure the way you've documented the Trump movement from its scrappy beginnings to the thick of the deep state conflicts. No doubt in my mind you will go down in history as the best political cartoonist of this era and one of the best ever.

I would like to know, as well.

My high school government teacher made us read the political cartoon in our town’s daily newspaper, and try to dissect what it meant.

Looking back, I see that as one of the most brilliant ways to introduce young people to politics, in a way that begins with them asking questions and looking at the big picture- rather than relying on what someone else has spelled out in words for you to regurgitate.

Did Ben have anyone like that? Did he starts with and interest in politics, or in art?

I'm deeply grateful that Ben helped promote right wing poster campaigns before that sent shockwaves through the media and pissed off the ADL.

Hoping that he can promote the "It's Okay To Be White" poster campaign on Oct 31st this year so patriots can anonymously spread posters on streets and campuses using Halloween costumes & masks to protect their identity from MSM.

A post on Gab could help tremendously!

How can young conservative artists protect themselves in the publishing industry while also growing their voices and building a new pop culture?

213
GrrrGraphics 213 points ago +214 / -1

It's tough right now because the left ruthlessly attacks conservatives by going after their means of making a living. It happened to me and they were largely successful. Only my supporters saved me. If someone wants to draw conservative cartoons they must be aware of this. Maybe an anonymous route is the way to go, but the left is ruthless and brutal in their attacks.

Can confirm, only post my cartoons under this anonymous name with a link to my anonymous Gab

edit: Another important thing to mention, the It's Okay To Be White poster campaign is happening again this Halloween. Plan is to cover schools, streets and public areas with that poster - while wearing a mask and halloween costume for anonymity so MSM can't dox anyone. Ben, if you see this can you please help promote the campaign? A post on Gab could help a lot! Thanks in advance if you can

mybordersmychoice 4 points ago +4 / -0

I respect people who are extremely concerned about OpSec and in that case I recommend going very low tech and simply making the posters yourself with a sharpie while wearing gloves (buy the gloves, paper and sharpie with cash only). Zero risk of "forensic dot tracing".

If you want to make lots of them quickly, you can make a stencil with an old piece of cardboard to speed things up.

What do you do to stay sane with all of this garbage evil going on in the world?

246
GrrrGraphics 246 points ago +249 / -3

It's not easy, but we have to realize who is really sane and who is not. At the top...THEY are the ones who are insane. They have been driven to insanity by their belief that they are superior to humanity because they own and control nearly everything. They dominate the masses and believe we should all jump into lockstep with whatever insane dictate they roll out. The tranny nonsense is a perfect example, but now they want to remove male and female from birth certificates.

They are gaslighting us on a massive scale since they control mass media and social media as well as most politicians, the courts, the security agencies, and education.

We must always remember that THEY are psychotic and we are the ones who are sane.

What’s your process? Do you check the news everyday and feverishly create or is it more planned and methodical?

171
GrrrGraphics 171 points ago +172 / -1

Most of my cartoons are 'same day' affairs. I have a cheap sketchbook and I scratch out ideas with a pencil to see if they work. If they have possibilities I'll do a more elaborate rough. My work is done on a large sheet of quality illustration board by hand. I ink things in using a Pentel Pocketbrush pen, then erase the pencil. I've done a few on the computer, but I prefer the hand-drawn look.

Hi Ben. What is your opinion on the 2020 elections.

241
GrrrGraphics 241 points ago +242 / -1

Stolen outright. Biden got more votes than Obama even though he only drew a half dozen people at his few and far between rallies? It's a joke. He stayed in his basement because he knew it was rigged in his favor.

They learned the lesson of Hillary. If they couldn't win fairly, they'd steal it. That's what they did. Actually they rigged it for Hillary and stole it for her too--at least, they tried...but they didn't try hard enough. They pulled out all stops and blatantly stole it knowing the propaganda media would cover for them.

100% this. Bravo.

They couldn't predict Trump's numbers in 2016, and simply couldn't make up the difference on such short notice. In 2020, they had already had 4 years to prepare, and had previous 2016 numbers to go off of, with a potential voter growth taken into account. Perfect recipe for fraud votes, or what Trump called "Explosions of Bullshit".

I firmly believe everything that is going on today was supposed to happen in 2017. Trump getting elected only delayed the inevitable.

21
ItsFunToSay-M-A-G-A 21 points ago +21 / -0

Even with their 4 years of preparations to attempt to predict the massive growth of support for Trump, it still wasn't enough to beat him! That's why they had to stop the vote counting at 2:30 am on election night and why they were in a mad scramble to magically "find" all of those extra ballots at 4 am in Detroit, Milwaukee, Philadelphia, Atlanta, and Phoenix!

TRUMP WON IN A MASSIVE LANDSLIDE! It broke their algorithms they set up for the steal!

Take it further. They used Covid to make that cheating easier, just as they pushed the BLM agenda to create an aura of chaos.

Here are some of the popular questions from the AMA announcement thread.

Hey Ben, what's it like to have Chris Wallace as a doppelganger?

4chan has been putting your signature on works you did not create. Often with overtly Nazi/racist/asshole-ish content. What are your thoughts on this, and how has it affected your reputation and reception in the internet community and real world?

Do you make a living drawing those cartoons or is it a hobby? If you make a living from it, please talk about that and inspire other artists!

Hey Ben, have you faced political persecution from major media outlets or social media companies? If so, what happened?

I have no colleagues per se. The last cartoonist to write me was Steve Greenberg. I worked with him for 13 years at a paper in Seattle. The art department often had poker games at his place. We went out to lunch countless times.

Then he wrote me an email a few years back and condemned me for being an anti-Semitic bigot. He drew lefty toons and couldn't believe I supported Trump. So be it. I never wrote him back. I'm no longer in contact with very few of my old friends from my newspaper days. They've disowned me. Fine...I'll make new friends.

GrrrGraphics 111 points ago +111 / -0

Editorial cartoons are based in anger and negativity. When the criminal bankers were given trillions of dollars in 2008 I snapped and decided to draw anti-Federal Reserve cartoons in protest. That's how they started. In my younger days I was interested in editorial cartoons, but I was told I wasn't funny enough and I wasn't mean enough to do them. I was discouraged at every turn. Well, in 2008 I discovered my meanness. Humor? To hell with being funny--the cartoons can still make a point without prompting guffaws.

GrrrGraphics 102 points ago +102 / -0

I knowingly label as I see fit. Have I overdone it in the past? Sure, but 100 years from now (if my work isn't memory-holed) then they'll make more sense. American cartoons in the past often use copious amounts of labels. I carry on that tradition. European editorial cartoonists try to use no labels at all. Those end up being mere illustrations in my opinion.

You call yourselves Christians, or Jews, or claim to follow some other religion, but the truth is, what you call your religion is empty window-dressing. What you truly worship, the god you really bow to, what you really believe in, is the state. ‘Thou shalt not steal.’ ‘Thou shalt not murder.’ Unless you can do it by way of government. Then it’s just fine, isn’t it?

I'll try to summarize: Understanding that human authority is a myth. We are all born under God with the exact same rights. Tyrants imagine they have extra rights but are mistaken.

Attempt #2: It is the fundamental understanding of the difference between right and wrong.

GrrrGraphics 105 points ago +106 / -1

It's already bad. The dystopian future is here. If people don't wake up and stop participating in their own slavery, it will get very bad.

What did Stalin do? He executed millions. 1/10th of the population were sent to gulags--slave labor camps. His henchmen beat and tortured innocents in prisons. Think Pelosi won't do that same? They all will--they are sadists who want to punish their enemies. Pelosi is already doing that with her gulag prison in DC. MAGA protestors locked up without lawyers and getting beaten. It's already begun and it will get far worse if everyone keeps complying.

Hey Ben! First of all, big thanks for doing this AMA.

You are probably among the most iconic currently active political cartoonists of our day. Could you tell us what you think about some other prominent cartoonists, such as Stonetoss or Gprime85? Are there any other active artists whose works you particularly enjoy?

67
GrrrGraphics 67 points ago +67 / -0

I like Stonetoss and he once drew a cartoon about me that brought a big smile to my face. Gprime85's four panel work is very well done and he's a lot hipper than I could ever be. I think he draws all his stuff on the computer. He's got real talent.

Political Satirists have a way of taking current events and seeing the absurdity of them. Ben Garrison is the leading political cartoonist of the MAGA MOVEMENT.

My question(s) for BEN GARRISON:

Name the thing you find the most ridiculous about this administration.

Conversely, name the thing about this administration that terrifies you the most.

105
GrrrGraphics 105 points ago +106 / -1

It's not an administration. It's a REGIME. They are criminal interlopers and, if they continue to get away with it, they will press their advantage and continue to commit crimes such as aiding and abetting those who want to illegally enter our country. Biden is a puppet, but what his regime will do is continue to trample on our freedoms such as free speech. The thing that terrifies me the most is he will send out GOON SQUADS or traitors in the military to show up at our doors and take our guns while giving us a poisonous jab. If they kick my door down without a warrant to do that, they'll see what happens.

18

They may try to take our guns someday and they may get some but I guarantee you they will run out of people who are willing to take the rest.

GrrrGraphics 69 points ago +70 / -1

Long long ago when I was in the 5th grade I began writing stories. I illustrated them with little cartoons. The cartoons took over and became comics. In Jr. High I drew comic strips and caricatures of teachers and classmates. In high school I studied serious art and began painting.

Painting is what I love doing the most...wish I had more time to do them.

Did you ever get to meet with President Trump, after you were taken off the list for alternative media at the White House???

51
GrrrGraphics 51 points ago +52 / -1

No, but Ben hopes to meet President Trump in his third term! Behind the scenes story- Ben did go to the Social media Summit After party at the Trump Hotel DC. While Ben was mingling someone tugged at his sleeve and introduced themselves claiming that President Trump loved the cartoons very much. That person was Dan Scavino.

That's very cool. Scavino would certainly know. He's always seemed like a very good egg.

Comanche_Moon 6 points ago +6 / -0

I came to ask this very question. Thanks, Pede. I want to know about that too. We were all very disappointed that you weren't invited into the WH because of the liberal opposition. I hope you were able to meet with President Trump and talk about this. Everything that man did was a battle and he couldn't win them all. Also, I bought your Ship of Fools for my daughter and she absolutely loved it. Please don't ever forget the missing shoe!

WowbaggerTIP 22 points ago +22 / -0

Have you ever wavered on publishing a cartoon because it was politically “too much?” Have you ever toned down your work?

53
GrrrGraphics 53 points ago +53 / -0

That's a good question and the only one I had any trepidation about was the Melania vs. Michelle one (drew Michelle as a tranny). I told Tina to post it only for the Patreon followers but she just posted it on our site anyway. The shit hit the fan in a furious manner, but it also brought us a lot more followers and recognition.

As for my other cartoons I often fault myself for not pushing the message harder--in other words, I want to tone them UP and not down.

Don't believe me? Look at the leftoid subreddit r/therightcantmeme. They constantly froth at the mouth over your cartoons.

Matter of fact, I actually visit that subreddit to get memes and a good laugh.

GrrrGraphics 48 points ago +49 / -1

Making them angry is a good thing. An effective cartoon can be like a sock in the gut and I enjoy socking them. Getting a sock in the gut is memorable, too. You don't forget gettin socked in the gut, ha ha

Hey Ben,

20
JuliusEvola 20 points ago +20 / -0

I bought your piece with Bill Gates ominously hovering over the 5 stages of the planned-demic. 5th stage was forced inoculations. Just want to say I got that last year and you were right. Can tell you listen to Alex Jones and aren’t ashamed of it which is why I decided to support you. You’re a true hero.

  1. Can you or have you done a piece about Stockholm syndrome regarding vaccines? Something like a naive/smug liberal college girl who develops Bells Palsy after the jab with a quote cloud saying something like, “this doesn’t mean the vaccine caused this. GET YOUR VACCINE YOU SELFISH PRICK!” I feel like something like that would resonate well the sheep who pretend their side effects have nothing to do with this experimental poison vaccine designed to “treat” the Fauci funded CCP virus.

  2. Do you have any other pieces about ivermectin/HCQ/suppression of America’s frontline doctors? I would totally buy and think they’d be a big hit if you put your witty spin on them.

I got a signed copy of your frist big book of cartoons. Great coffee table book. When does volume two come out?

41
GrrrGraphics 41 points ago +41 / -0

I feel bad about that first book--inflicting such a HEAVY volume on people...but I wanted to give them their money's worth. It was printed in South Korea and they did a fine job on it. DONORS made that book possible because it was so expensive to print. I'd like to do another softbound book out of Korea--big size, but not nearly as heavy. "America First Forever" or some such title and it would feature my best Trump cartoons. Can't afford to do it yet, though.

Our little books are done by Amazon. We couldn't afford to print them otherwise. "Real" publishers want nothing to do with me.

sentient-potato 6 points ago +6 / -0

Agents and publishers are gatekeepers. I've been trying to get published and almost all agent "wish lists" are LQBTQ+ characters or "a strong female voice" or "marginalized experiences".

Friendly_B 1 point ago +1 / -0

What publishers have you looked at if you can go through some of them?

2
sentient-potato 2 points ago +2 / -0

DAW Penguin and Launch Books don't require an agent, so I may be going through them. I'm still querying agents but when I see their wish list, and know I don't have LGBTQ+ characters which they state they want, I sort of know I'll get rejected.

I'll keep trying, as I'm told it's a marathon, not a race :)

32
GrrrGraphics 32 points ago +32 / -0

I talked to him on the phone once. We talked about our process as well as how to get books published. I have an advantage because I'm very good with Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, and Photoshop. I put together my own books including that massive coffee table book. I don't need anyone's help with that, but he does since he didn't come from a newspaper background....but in many ways he's more successful than me. His cartoons are easier to understand. He's syndicated and his work is more ubiquitous than mine. He never had to go through the troll ring of fire either and I'm not sure why the concentrated on me and left him alone.

29
GrrrGraphics 29 points ago +29 / -0

...why they...excuse the typo.

One more thing--we tried to get syndicated but were were ignored due to the false label of 'racist, anti-semitic cartoonist' that has been affixed to my name by the powers that be.

Ron Paul. I like Trump, but let's face it...it's Ron Paul.

I'm more aligned with Paul than any other politician I've come across. Strike that. He's a statesman more than a politician.

14
NullifyAndSecede 14 points ago +14 / -0

I suspected this was the case, and I would also whole heartedly agree.

One of my favorite comics of yours (other than the shrine of statism) is one of Ron Paul pointing the way to Liberty and everyone else walking in the opposite direction.

These are the (extra) topics I like to learn of as well. Especially about foods that talented or successful people enjoy. Thanks for asking the question and thank you to u/GrrGraphics for answering.
I can remember what people have ordered 20 years ago when I had meals with potential bosses, dates, dates' families, etc. We really are what we eat in so many more ways than the obvious. I'm 50 and since I started dating in my teens, I wouldn't / didn't stay around if a girl isn't open-minded or doesn't eat right. This is a fact and it will never change. Could be why I'm single today? lol
