Yes, this is indeed by Dr Seuss, from when he was a political cartoonist in the 30s and 40s.

 

Bigotry finds interesting ways to reinvent itself.

You do realize that was political commentary, right?

I’m pretty sure Dr Seuss was criticizing the “America First” crowd with that cartoon. 

 

Edit - yeah, see @herrmag‘s link to Snopes

Don’t hold your breath for the Trump administration to hold Jared’s pal accountable.

It is shameful that the Trump administration has essentially given a free pass to Mohammed bin Salman for this ruthless, brutal murder of an American-based journalist.

Free pass?  Probably more like dictator envy.

The headline of theTurkish daily newspaper Yeni Safak :

Recordings reveal Khashoggi tortured then dismembered while still alive

Khashoggi’s fingers were allegedly cut off during the interrogation process before he was decapitated

 

“It took seven minutes for Jamal Khashoggi to die, a Turkish source who has listened in full to an audio recording of the Saudi journalist's last moments,” told the Middle East Eye.

The source said Khashoggi was “dragged from the Consul General’s office at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul and onto the table of his study next door. The screaming stopped when Khashoggi was injected with an as yet unknown substance. Head of forensic evidence in the Saudi general security department Salah Muhammad al-Tubaigy began to cut Khashoggi’s body up on a table in the study while he was still alive. As he started to dismember the body, Tubaigy put on earphones and listened to music. He advised other members of the squad to do the same.”

I do not know anything about the veracity of Yeni Safak as a media source, but other outlets are reporting similar details.

No wonder they had to slap a new coat of paint all over the consulate walls.

 

Audio of Jamal Khashoggi's gruesome murder revealed

 

The Turkish Daily Sabah newspaper has released transcripts of audio recordings of journalist Jamal Khashoggi and the Saudi hit squad that killed him inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul last year. 

 

The recordings, obtained by Turkey's national intelligence and made public by the newspaper on Monday, detailed the conversations between the Saudi writer and members of the 15-man hit squad moments before his assassination on October 2, 2018.

 

...

 

In the audio recorded minutes before Khashoggi entered the consulate building, Mutreb asked whether it will "be possible to put the trunk in a bag".

 

In response, Salah Mohammed Abdah Tubaigy, a well-known Saudi forensics doctor, replied: "No. Too heavy, very tall, too."

 

He added: "Actually, I've always worked on cadavers. I know how to cut very well. I have never worked on a warm body though, but I'll also manage that easily.

 

"I normally put on my earphones and listen to music when I cut cadavers. In the meantime, I sip on my coffee and smoke. After I dismember it, you will wrap the parts into plastic bags, put them in suitcases and take them out [of the building]."

 

...

 

In the last 10 minutes before he was killed, Mutreb asked Khashoggi to "leave a message for your son", saying not to worry if he could not reach the journalist.

 

When Khashoggi refused, Mutreb said: "Write it, Mister Jamal. Hurry up. Help us so we can help you, because in the end we will take you back to Saudi Arabia and if you don't help us you know what will happen eventually."

 

The operatives then drugged the Saudi journalist. His last words before losing consciousness were: "I have asthma. Do not do it, you will suffocate me."

 

Sound of an autopsy saw dismembering the 59-year-old's body can be heard at 1.39pm local time. The procedure lasted 30 minutes.
