Decorum Required


cjones11162016

Do you know why people are protesting and are upset over the election of Donald Trump? It’s not just because a narcissistic man who’s notable for being ignorant is walking into the Oval Office. It’s because they’re goose stepping into the Oval Office. Another big juicy reason that a lot of Americans are still traumatized after discovering just how comfortable a little less than half of white America is with racism. Dave Chappelle had a point. But protest, they must. It’d be a lot nicer if a lot of them had also voted.

A lot of people were very silent in Germany during the early 1930s when they allowed a fascist to assume their highest office. We learned what happens from that. Silence will not be allowed now but again, you should have voted. I know a lot of you wanted Bernie but now you have Racist In Chief. Good job.

Trump and others say we should give him a chance and within the first week he appoints an alt-right white nationalist as his chief strategist. Chance is up. It got the heil out of here. David Duke is doing cartwheels which he should be given mad props for as that’s really difficult to execute while wearing a sheet.

A lot of people defend themselves as not being racist while they support racist messages. If you continue to listen to 90s pop band Ace Of Base after discovering they’re a bunch of Swedish Nazis you can be excused because “The Sign” is kinda catchy, though you might want to ask yourself “what kind of sign are they singing about with such lovely harmonies?”. If you make an alt-right, misogynist, anti-Semitic, white nationalist the second most powerful person in the White House, then you might be a racist. You might also want to take a closer look at yourself if you voted for this crap.

Steve Bannon took a leave from Breitbart to manage the Trump campaign. While running Breitbart the publication ran such headlines as “Birth Control Makes Women Unattractive and Crazy,” and “Bill Kriston: Republican Spoiler, Renegade Jew,” and “Lesbian Bridezillas Bully Bridal Shop Owner Over Religious Beliefs.” Even some conservatives formerly associated with Breitbart refer to it as a “hate site steeped in misogyny, homophobia, transphobia, white nationalism and anti-Semitism.” Even Glenn Beck finds Steve Bannon scary.

Bannon is quoted as saying “What we need to do is bitch-slap the Republican Party,” and “Fear is a good thing. Fear is going to lead you to take action.”

Fear is definitely the strategy the future White House chief strategist used in the campaign. He will surely continue to use that as his strategy from the Executive office. In case you didn’t see Star Wars you need to take note of Yoda’s warning: “Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering. You do remember what happened to the republic in Star Wars? Democracy fell, the Senate was disbanded, Samuel L. Jackson got his hand chopped off, soldiers became lousy shots, Liam Neeson’s “particular set of skills” were useless, a heavy mouth breather was in charge of the military, Obi Wan Kenobi aged 40 years in a span of 20, and Luke kissed his sister. Plus, it took the empire 20 years to build their wall, which was the Death Star which got blown up a week after it’s completion, and I bet Darth Sidious claimed he was great at building things too. I don’t want this to happen to America.

Quite frankly Yoda is the only sentient being from a swamp I’d like to see as a part of this administration.

Creative note: I took creative license with the armband in the cartoon. I was sure it was on the right arm for some reason. Probably because the arm is “right.” I planned the layout for the cartoon with that. While drawing the cartoon I had to Google some images of Nazi uniforms (always fun) and discovered it was on the left. Now Nazis have another reason to hate me.

Today’s blog included Nazis, Star Wars, and Ace Of Base references. If you weren’t aware of the Ace Of Base Nazi thing until now, sorry to bring that to your attention. You already lost Chachi. Kinda ruins everything doesn’t it? You still have Yoda.

Did you like this cartoon? Want to help a cartoonist make a living? Look to the right of this page and make a donation through Paypal. I need to buy pens, paper, sandwiches, and dog food. The starving cartoonist and his Beagle appreciates it. If you’ve donated in the past, THANK YOU!!!

  2. Here’s the problem with Alt speak.

    Calling Bill Kristol a Renegade Jew… Technically, he’s right. I have zero love for Bill Kristol! Bill Kristol is the guy who wrote the memo that aggravated the base and created the basis for destroying Hillarycare back in ’90 whatever.

    His position was that if Hillarycare passed, it would mean that people would be so happy with the Democrats, the Republicans could kiss the White House good bye for the next 50 years.

    Before he wrote the memo, the Fortune 500 were looking at Hillary care as the solution to their growing problem (health care costs were growing at a rate that was double or triple the rate of inflation, so they were falling behind in that they couldn’t raise the prices they got for their product enough to cover the increase in their costs.)

    Bill Kristol’s father was the architect of “Neo Con” mostly because the NYC Liberal Elite (of which he desperately wanted to be considered a part of) thought he was a doofus. Keep in mind that this was in the ’70s and the idle intellectual rich would publish “magazines” that they would subscribe to (each others’). It was “blogging” before the internet. And Irving was getting no traction. So he decided to “Show Them!” by being a “New Conservative” that despised Democrats even more than the “Old Conservatives” hated Commies.

    Think, Goldwater. Which is why when Goldwater died, Rush Limbaugh figuratively spat on the casket Barry in which was laid to rest.

    Bill Kristol’s Neo-Con organization has been the American Al Queda! Offering a safe home for ideologies such as Grover Norquist’s “Drown it in a bathtub!” and the strategy of “Stave The Beast” which they implemented and was on track to destroy the social safety net. But what they didn’t count on was Judo Master, Barack Obama’s willingness to take the pain of steering the nation out of the ditch they intentionally drove us into.

    He, Kristol is a member of the Northeastern Elite. And that means he’s… I don’t want to say it because I don’t want to echo the deplorable meme even as I attempt to discredit it.

    No doubt Bannon is one angry #$%@#&#*$^&%! Just like there is no doubt that he takes his fashion clues from every spy movie ever! It’s like he’s from central casting. And Nazi would be bad enough, but the most disturbing factor is that he is part of a commie plot! Whether he knows it or not (I’m not sure which would be worse!) Don’t forget that he took over when the guy before him had to resign because it was disclosed that he had taken $16Million for services rendered to the Russian government in its efforts to annex Crimea!

    So the problem is: While I disagree with Bannon and the sickening things he says. I’m not going to defend Bill Kristol. And it is the germ of agreement that makes it hard to fight the originating virus!
