Webcomic / Billy the Heretic

Go To

"The basic story is that some wealthy jews adopt Billy (a goyim) after a mix-up at the adoption center. Billy is trying to fit into an ultra-rich-neo-con society as a crypto-white nationalist and his parents are always trying to change his un-PC ways/statements. "

Billy the Heretic is an infamous webcomic purporting to be an autobiographical account of a white African boy who was adopted by a family of Jews. Let's put it this way: instead of linking to a few other webcomics, it links to the infamous white supremacist website Stormfront. The creator has described it as "the white nationalist's Dilbert".

If you want to take a look, here it is.

This webcomic contains examples of:

  • Ancient Conspiracy: It's a white supremacist depicting Jews. Unlike most versions of this trope, however, it seems very boring and plays all the racist views completely straight.
  • Art Evolution: Inverted. It started at 'barely passable' and ended up looking like a twelve-year-old's doodles.
  • Author Tract: This "webcomic" is written just as an excuse for the author to tell his extremely bigoted, antisemitic, and xenophobic viewpoints without any hint of irony or humor in it.

  • Blatant Lies: The plot is nowhere near real. The writer is an American neo-Nazi living somewhere in Michigan; the artist is an Irish White supremacist.
  • Broken Aesop: Every single one of them; One strip centered around Affirmative Action, with Adam giving everybody with skin darker than a strip of paint a raise, and firing anybody who complained. However, thanks to the incredibly poor art, the strip of paint isn't even shaded and is pale white, making it look like everybody got promoted.
  • Excuse Plot: Beside just blatantly promoting antisemitism and white supremacy, there's virtually no semblance of a plot, character development, or anything for that matter.
  • Greedy Jew: Billy's adopted parents, and pretty much any Jewish "character" for that matter, are blatantly depicted as this and every other antisemitic caricature known to man.

  • Hitler Ate Sugar: Inverted; the comic points out that just because Hitler did something doesn't make it wrong, and then uses that as justification to support everything he stood for anyway.
  • Insane Troll Logic: The comic relies heavily on Logical Fallacies and false premises to make its blatantly antisemitic and racist views a point.
  • Lazy Artist: In a standout example, one strip shows Billy and his adoptive father reading newspapers, obscuring most of their bodies. Rather than take a few seconds to draw necks and shoulders, the author just gives them Floating Heads.
  • Recycled In Space: This is Ethnic Cleansing IN WEBCOMIC FORM!!
  • So Unfunny, It's Funny: The comic by and large fails at successfully telling jokes, but it becomes legitimately hilarious when it attempts to seriously expound its inane conspiracies.
  • Straw Character: Every single character that isn't our "hero" Billy is this.
  • Strawman Fallacy: Several strips have somebody say a blatantly incorrect fact or argue a point nobody believes in (examples include saying the Holocaust occurred in 1932note , that Anne Frank was gassed by the Nazis instead of dying from a typhoid infection, that nazis made lampshades and soup from Jews, that Europeans reached America before anybody else and that Jews think carpenters are greedy) only for Billy to point out that they're wrong, and therefore the Holocaust didn't happen.


How well does it match the trope?
