SJWs seriously don’t get satire

The latest SJW kerfuffle in Australia relates to the above cartoon by Bill Leak, which they say depicts poor Indians as being too stuppid to know solar panels can’t be eaten, as opposed to, say, rich Westerners being too stupid to realize poor countries have more pressing concerns than renewable energy.

Theodore Dalrymple gives his take over at Taki’s Magazine:

The reaction to the cartoon, however, was indicative of what one might call the will to outrage. This will precedes any object to which it might attach, and many people wait as if in ambush for something to feel angry about, pouncing on it with leopard-like joy (the leopard, so I was told in Africa, is particularly dangerous, for it kills for pleasure and not only for food).
