The ‘Moral Equivalence’ Meme After Charlottesville: An Explosion of Satire

Donald Trump has been widely condemned for his comments on Charlottesville. Many have argued that he was failing to make appropriate moral distinctions between the Nazis and the counter-protestors.

While such criticisms have themselves been subject to pushback, his words remain highly controversial at best.

Here are a few satire stories, both from Glossy News and elsewhere, which are playing on Trump’s contentious framing of the recent tragic events.

First, we’ll start with a couple of fandom jokes.

Next, a Glossy News Tolkien parody. Tolkien may have said he hated allegories, but there are some pretty funny correspondences to be found here!

Next, an intriguing premise from Jenny Corvette, wittily carried out:
