Military Veteran Group Issues Broad Warning Against Cartoonist Zapiro, Disrespectful Art

Here. There's a long and unfortunate history of the African National Congress and its subgroups speaking in a hostile way towards the cartoonist Zapiro and other artists, so this latest round shouldn't be a surprise. What is always worth noting is this idea that exists in various places that politicians deserve respectful treatment above and beyond other people. I strongly disagree, but that's not the way so many political cultures lean.
