The Murdoch gutter rag masquerading as a quality newspaper, The Times, has today gone full Der Stürmer by using a cartoon depicting Jeremy Corbyn at the helm of a Mersey ferry overladen with migrants.

The cartoon, entitled ‘Migrant Ferry across the Mersey’ was drawn by the Liverpool born and five-time cartoonist of the year, Peter D. Brookes, and was published the day after the Labour Party conference in Liverpool concluded. It would appear to be a response to Corbyn stating that he would not make a pledge to cut immigration by giving a maximum figure.

The cartoon is pure propoganda designed to dehumanise and to create an intolerance towards migrants. It is classic bigot herding, masquerading as clever satire or political humour. It is filth, straight from the playbook of Julius Streicher.

Political cartoons and satire have a long tradition and can be a powerful tool for illustrating points and influencing opinion – as well as being funny.

That said, satirical cartoons should surely be used to attack those in power, not as a tool to demonise people who are actually the victims of those in power.

The degenerates at The Times and Rupert Murdoch should be ashamed. These vile portrayals of immigrants are the stock-in-trade of every title in Murdoch’s Augean stable.

Evolve needs your help more than ever.

We rely on the generosity of our readers to help fund the majority of our work - but we need a little more to make ends meet and enable us to grow.

If we can reach 1,000 regular subscribers, we will become entirely financially sustainable - and we'll also have a little extra so we can build upwards and outwards to make our work have an even bigger impact.

In the last month alone, our work on the Environment Bill has helped force a change in the law for the better. And, since Evolve was founded, our uniquely viral style of journalism has repeatedly put the establishment on the back foot and helped force genuinely positive progression.

But we want to do far more - and we need your help to do it.

The best way you can help us is by becoming a Monthly or Annual subscriber. This kind of regular income allows us to better plan for the future - firstly so we can pay the bills, and then so we can set aside funds and time to work on extra projects.

However, if you can't commit to a regular payment, one-off donations - no matter how small - also make a big difference to us, and we genuinely make the most of every single penny.

So, if you appreciate the work that Evolve does and you want to see us make an even bigger impact on the world, please think about contributing to our work in whatever way you possibly can.
