The cartoon shows one man in a cowboy hat and boots and a confederate flag t-shirt being airlifted out of a flood. The man’s roof has a Texas flag with the word “secede” on it and there is a Gadsden flag floating in the waters nearby.

The man has a speech bubble that refers to rescuers as “Angels! Sent by God!” while one of the rescuers responds, “Er, actually Coast Guard, sent by the government.”
