The Guardian was mocking her (and the PMs) obesity. Nothing to do with race or skin colour. Should they be doing it? Probably not but I’m not wasting any sympathy on this Government. She’s still hot though. 

Agreed to disagree with you, this time.

Here she is in the Commons today,  recounting an occasion when the Guardian caricatured her as a 'fat cow' 😂

Funny, but she's being hugely disingenuous & playing the victim to characterise it as 'racist'... when the paper drew Boris Johnson, a white upper class male, the exact same way.

It's a clear fallacy.   You plainly can't claim something is 'racially motivated' when your white male colleague is caricatured alongside you in the exact same way.   

Patel is implying that drawing ANY British Asian woman as a cow is racist, regardless of context or company.  She is implicitly demanding special treatment;  demanding an immunity from ever being mocked in any way historically related to a racist trope. 

It would be like a Jewish person with an exceptionally large nose claiming their personal inclusion in a caricature piece alongside gentiles with similarly big noses is somehow antisemitic. 

Boris was drawn as a cow by a left wing illustrator because he is overweight and a Tory .  But clearly Priti was drawn as a cow not because she is also fat and a Tory,  but to make a subtle racist point about Hindus and Cows?  Hillarious 😂

She's implicitly claiming historical context should shield her from certain avenues of comparison or mockery -  even if said avenues are not, in their individual cases, motivated by racism.  

Digustingly narcasstic, disingenuous behaviour.  What's commonly known as 'dishonestly playing the race card'.

So evil. So fat. So hot. 

Honestly I love that she basically is forced to dress in a tent because otherwise she ends up looking like this

Just fat oozing everywhere. Beautiful

Wow. She's just thighs, hips and belly. She's so wide and looks fat and heavy!

Boris has been spared to the point this caricature is barely mocking him, while Pritti's ethnic features has been exxagerated to the point she looks like some demonic alien hag. On top of that, the mixed association between women of South Asian ancestry with cows under a humorous and featuring nonwhite populations like some sort of orcish or troll-ish creatures fully dabbles into the dusty heritage of British colonialism and scientific racism. 

 

You have to be pretty disgeneous to compare a monastic looking faceless beef with an ugly humanoid hag-cow with caricatured ethnic features. What a tone-deaf apology. 🙄

So the degree to which this drawing is racist primarily rests on the fact Patal wasn't drawn as a particularly flattering Fat Cow?  😂    It's equally plausible that Boris was spared a similar degree of facial mockery because it was decided it was funnier to mock him instead for his trademark long, disheveled hair.    If they'd done it the opposite way round, it's unlikely many people would have realised the female figure even was Patel.   

There's also the major issue that caricatures routinely and intentionally exaggerate unfortunate facial features,  irrespective of racial sensitivities.   The caricature artist cares not that that I may be a Jew when he draws me with curly hair and a big nose.   He cares not that exaggerating these features could be said to be 'racist' rather than just 'lookist' because they are intrinsically common physical traits for a particular race.   

If we sanitised Caricature of 'racist tropes',  we'd essentially be banning them from doing their job;  given that such 'racist tropes' are based ultimately in reality (hense why they became tropes to begin with).

I think there would have been alot less controversy if Priti was just drawn as a pig. The pink dress also makes that easier. Make fun of her weight without being racist

If they are capable to mock their Prime Minister's corpulent body without clutching negatively about his non-native-born British ancestry, they can do the same about Patel as well.

don't care. it's just embarrassing watching the MP's trying to compete with their racism stories. oppression olympics. so oppressed they were made MP's.

Never heard of her before and don't really give a shit about UK politics but she's a beautiful woman

Think of the most evil person you know. Times that with someone who holds all the most diabolical and conservative view points you could possibly think of. That’s her. But even worse.

But she has a pretty face and is getting fat...can we keep politics out of it please? 

Kind of difficult when the sheer width of that fat arse alone can bridge the Brexit-propelled U.K. with continental Europe, make the waters parting and protect the Realms of Men from the White Walkers.

Also, wasn't she acting hypocrite to accuse the right wing tabloid press to delve into white fears in order to "Other-rize" her from the political scene, based on her ethnic background, i.e. being the victim of her own game?? Absolutely: it doesn't mean she's wrong for either.
