Antifa

The Do-Nazi Run Run Run


Cjones04262021

In 2017 at the Unite The Right rally, neo-Nazis goose-stepped around with their tiki torches chanting, “Jews will not replace us” and, “Blood and soil.” Donald Trump claimed there were good people marching with Nazis making those chants. They were there to protect a Confederate statue the city voted to remove. They were met by anti-protesters, people opposed to racism and fascism. The tiki-torch Nazis responded by brawling with the antifascists. One Nazi intentionally drove his car into a crowd of anti-racist protesters. In doing so, the Nazi murdered Heather Heyer and injured 19 others. The Nazi driver was convicted of first-degree murder along with several other charges and is now serving a life prison sentence.

Soon, depending on which fucknut red state you’re in, that type of first-degree murder will be legal.

That’s right, kiddos. Republicans across the nation aren’t just content with taking away your voting rights…they want to make it legal for Nazis to kill you. Or at the very least, punish you for protesting by taking away your rights to receive public assistance, student loans, government jobs, and even the right to run for elective office. Seriously. They are trying to silence you.

What’s funny is, all those ammosexuals horny for guns who refer to themselves as “constitutionalists” are pretty quiet about this assault on the First Amendment. In case you’re a Republican, the First Amendment is also in the Constitution.

Florida’s idiot governor, Ron DeSantis, is calling their anti-free speech law the “strongest anti-looting, anti-rioting, pro-law-enforcement piece of legislation in the country.” Here’s the thing, kids. It’s already illegal to loot and riot. What they’re doing here is making it illegal to assemble which means they’re making it illegal to protest. They’re making it illegal to say what they don’t want to hear. DeSantis has also tied this to protecting Confederate statues and any protester who harms one can serve 15 years in prison. Who do you think he’s talking to with that? He’s talking to Nazis.

They’re saying this is a pro-law-enforcement act, but most of these guys can’t summon up the word “terrorists” when it comes to those MAGA fuckers who attacked our nation’s Capitol building and attacked cops. When racist fucks like DeSantis talk about the “riots” and “looting,” they mention Portland. What they don’t mention is Washington, D.C.

One of these bills is actually from a Republican in the Minnesota legislature. So, while Derek Chauvin is going to jail for murdering a black man, if this bill passes, you can can legally murder those protesting the murder of a black man. There are over 80 bills being sponsored to silence protests in 34 states.

In Oklahoma and Iowa, they’re making it legal to run over protesters in your car if you’re afraid for your life. That’s ridiculous because white Republicans are always afraid of black people. Just watch Tucker Carlson tonight. That guy is probably doing his show in a diaper because he’s scaring the shit out of himself.

In fact, this has already happened in Oklahoma. Last year in Tulsa, a driver in a pickup hauling a horse trailer drove through a crowd of Black Lives Matter protesters. He injured several and even paralyzed one for life. Guess what. He wasn’t charged because he was “scared” of all the black people. Seriously. If there was a horse in that trailer and someone would have paralyzed it, they would have been charged. In Oklahoma, horses have more rights than black people.

Also, being afraid of Black Lives Matter protesters is bullshit. Look at me. I’m not Chuck Norris and I don’t carry a gun or even a pointy stick, yet I felt perfectly safe walking with Black Lives Matter for over 60 blocks in Manhattan and mingling with them in Washington, D.C. The only people who scared me were the cops. Did that give me the right to murder scary cops? Nope.

Black Lives Matter protesters will chant with a lot of profanity, but they’re some of the nicest people you will ever meet. Claiming you’re afraid of them says a lot more about you.

They’re calling these hate bills “anti-riot” bills, but here’s a little juicy tidbit: Over 96 percent of Black Lives Matter protests last year were peaceful. What’s more, they found that most violence was instigated by white supremacists crashing the protests, and cops. Wanna hear another interesting juicy tidbit? Sure, you do. One hundred percent of white nationalists neo-Nazi protests where Donald Trump spoke resulted in violence, terrorist attacks, and loss of lives.

MAGA fuckers are a lot scarier than Black Lives Matter or Antifa. A MAGA crowd is more likely to have terrorists in their groups and people who support terrorists. A Black Lives Matter and Antifa crowd is more likely to consist of vegetarians and people who want to go to Starbucks later.

Concerning the white nationalists responsible for the majority of terrorists attack in this nation, you don’t see Republicans sponsoring legislation to silence them. Why, silencing racists and other assorted fucknut Nazis like Oath Keepers, Proud Boys, and the something-or-other percenters would be anti-Constitutional. Nazis have a right to assemble and protest. You don’t even see blue states trying to make that illegal. All the Proud Boys can protest all they want to “stop the steal” and for the right to kiss their sisters on the mouth, but it wouldn’t give you the right to run them over in a pickup hauling a horse trailer.

But just like with voting where Republicans only want white people to have a voice, they only want Nazis to have freedom of speech. If you believe black lives matter or you’re anti-fascism, they want to silence you. They want to make your voice illegal. At what point do they make my cartoons illegal?

I can’t speak for Black Lives Matter but I’m pretty sure these Nazi-coddling Republican motherfuckers will not silence them, and I assure you they won’t silence me either.

All the conservatives, like Tucker Carlson, who are upset a white cop has been convicted for murdering a black man now want to make it legal for Nazis to murder people protesting a white cop killing a black man. If Republicans had their way, the murder of Heather Heyer would have been legal.

RoJo Is A Racist Mofo


cjones03162021

On Sundays, my CNN cartoon is published and I try to bask in that accomplishment and not draw anything all day. Maybe I’ll watch a movie on Disney+ or Netflix and avoid news all together. That was my plan for this Sunday, but then Ron Johnson pissed me off.

I think when my copy editor Laura sees this, she’s going to tell me it’s more reality than it is a cartoon. Why? Because this is the gist of what Wisconsin Republican Senator Ron Johnson said on a right-wing radio show.

Senator Johnson, who some call “Rojo,” isn’t just a racist senator. He’s a stupid dishonest one too. But then again, he is a Republican and a massive Trump supporter…so being racist, stupid, and a liar comes with the territory.

Ron Johnson watched while the United States Capitol building was attacked by white supremacist terrorist Trump supporters. They broke into the building. The damaged property. They defecated and urinated in the halls. They stole property. They desecrated our Capitol. They injured over 100 Capitol Police officers and they killed one. They attacked cops and beat them with flag poles and fire extinguishers. Over 40 have been arrested so far. Ron Johnson said he only saw law-abiding citizens. It gets worse.

On “The Joe Pag Show,” a radio show I’m assuming has an audience of racist troglodytes, Ron Johnson said he “never felt threatened” by the pro-Trump mob because…wait for it…they weren’t black.

Johnson said, “I knew those are people that love this country, that truly respect law enforcement, would never do anything to break the law, so I wasn’t concerned.”

They broke the law just be entering the building, dumbass. How much respect do you have for the law when you break and climb into windows? How much respect for the law do you have when you’re walking out with the Speaker’s podium? How much respect do you have for this country when you take a shit on the floor of the United States Capitol? How much love do you have for this country when you try to overturn an election and stage a bloody coup attempt?

That was the stupid dishonest part of Johnson’s statements. It was followed by a racist one.

He said, “Had the tables been turned and President Trump won the election and those were tens of thousands of Black Lives Matter and antifa protesters, I might have been a little concerned.”

Basically, white people with nooses, storming the capitol, waving Confederate flags, wearing “Camp Auschwitz” shirts, leaving pipe bombs, killing cops, isn’t concerning…but if one of them had an afro, then I guess the person crapping on the floors would have been Ron Johnson. And you know what? I bet if it had been a non-violent Black Lives Matter protest at the Capitol, the National Guard would have swooped in a lot quicker than they did last January 6 when Donald Trump sent white terrorists to overturn a free election and stop a Constitutional process.

Also, it’s really bizarre Ron Johnson is saying he would have only been concerned if antifa was a part of the rioters when in the past he claimed it was antifa who did the rioting. C’mon, guys. You gotta keep your bullshit talking points straight. Pick a stupid lie and stick to it.

From personal experience, I was never concerned about the crowd I was with when I was walking with Black Lives Matter in New York City on June 1, 2020. I wasn’t even worried when I saw a few stores get looted by the minority of protesters. Even then, they were nice and one even offered me a Jeter jersey. I had great conversations with the protesters and many thanked me for “helping their cause” and for “lending my whiteness.” One girl called me “white brother” which I liked very much. Some of the best Americans I ever met were marching in Manhattan that night to selflessly advance civil rights for every person this nation.

What did concern me was when white people started dropping water bottles on the marchers out of their penthouses. It concerned me when cops started screaming at us while raising their batons. It was greatly concerning when after screaming at me and a few others (who happened to be Asian) to go in a different direction, that after we complied, they kept following and screaming at us. I was greatly concerned when the New York City Police told me I would be arrested if I broke curfew…while they were blocking me from entering my hotel.

Not one black person or member of antifa concerned me that night. But if Ron Johnson had been there, well…he’d probably be up in a building dropping water bottles on peaceful protesters because he would have been concerned because the majority of the crowd was not white.

I saw people in Manhattan, of all colors and races, spend their own money on water and face masks, then hand them out to strangers who were protesting. It was one of the most unifying events I have ever witnessed or been a part of. I felt genuine love between the protesters. What I saw on January 6 at the Capitol was hate, fear, and rage inspired by people like Ron Johnson who told them lies.

You canNOT compare a Black Lives Matter rally or march to white nationalist terrorism in the name of Donald Trump. Black Lives Matter seeks equality for all. They’re demanding that cops stop murdering unarmed black people. Trump terrorists tried to destroy our democracy and install a fascist dictator. If you don’t see the difference in that, well then you’re Ron Johnson.

Any senator who pledges more loyalty to Donald Trump than to his/her constituents is a lousy senator. Ron Johnson has put Trump before the truth and his country on multiple occasions.

Wisconsin’s motto is “Forward.” In 2022 when Rojo is up for reelection, they need to prove they believe in their motto and remove their racist, lying, stupid senator from Congress. If enough black people and anti-fascists turn out to vote, Ron Johnson will be justified in being “concerned.”

Not Antifa


cjones01102021

On September 11, 2001, passengers on Flight 93 sacrificed their lives to prevent the plane overtaken by terrorists from flying into our nation’s capitol building. On January, 6, 2021, the President (sic) of the United States of America sent terrorists to that same capitol building to stage an insurrection, attempt a coup, and commit sedition.

Immediately after photos were posted online of the MAGA mob breaking into the capitol, vandalizing offices, breaking windows, threatening lives, and leaving pipe bombs, the Trump cult claimed the terrorists were Antifa. Of course, this was wrong and immediately debunked.

The crowd went straight from a Trump rally to the capitol building. Donald Trump did NOT speak at an Antifa rally.

Whataboutism doesn’t justify and excuse your horrible actions. Even if Antifa burned down the capitol building last year, it wouldn’t justify what the Trump mob did yesterday.

And the sycophants online, they couldn’t keep their bullshit straight. One minute, they were calling the goons Antifa, the next minute, they were calling them patriots. I saw one conservative colleague call them Antifa then turn around and demand the same mourning that George Floyd received be given to Ashli Babbitt, the MAGAt shot and killed yesterday by Capitol Police while she was breaking through a door committing a terrorist act. My question to him is: Why should we mourn her if she was Antifa? Hmm?

Another conservative cartoonist, drew a cartoon blaming Proud Boys, the KKK, and…wait for it…Antifa. Never mind that Antifa isn’t really an organization or the fact they were not present yesterday during the storming of the capitol. But, Antifa was present during the 1940s when they stomped out fascism in Europe and Asia.

Ben Garrison, a propagandist and member of the Trump cult complained today that “Twitter ‘sucked’ off 500 of his followers.” That doesn’t have anything to do with this or Antifa but I just wanted to point out the new service Twitter is offering.

Antifa didn’t kill anyone last year. Yesterday, The MAGA mob sent directly by Donald Trump was responsible for four deaths. Yesterday, the Trump mob committed sedition because democracy didn’t give them what they want, a fascist dictator. Yesterday, the Trump mob tried to install a leader with a bloody coup. They brought pipe bombs and Molotov cocktails.

The people who attacked the capitol yesterday were not Antifa, protesters, or patriots. They were a mob, goons, traitors, and terrorists. They attacked our country. They attacked America. I get that MAGAts are tribal and feel they have to support members of their tribe when they commit bad acts, even terrorism, but supporting and celebrating these terrorists is un-American.

Ashli Babbit was an Air Force veteran who had served four tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. Yesterday, she violated her military oath of defending our nation from all threats, foreign and domestic, by becoming a domestic threat. Ashli betrayed her oath, became a MAGAt terrorist, and attacked the United States of America, the nation she took an oath to defend and protect. She retweeted conspiracy theories from Trump and attorney Lin Wood. Her death leaves blood on their hands. She didn’t die defending democracy…she died assaulting it.

Here’s a useful tip to remember: Patriots don’t attack their country or defend and support terrorists who do.

By the way, this cartoon was drawn by Antifa.

The Pusher Provocateur


cjones06122020

The reason Donald Trump is NOT my president isn’t that I don’t like him or disagree with his politics. George W. Bush was my president and I didn’t like him. Donald Trump is not my president because he’s not a president.

Donald Trump hasn’t taken one moment to be presidential. I found it funny that he and his campaign promised he would be presidential after he was inaugurated which was an acknowledgment he wasn’t presidential and instead was behaving like an immature narcissistic toddler with major insecurity issues because his parents didn’t love him. On top of not being presidential, Donald Trump doesn’t even pretend he wants my support. He caters to the most racist and vile of America. He also caters to the most stupid.

Say what you will about George W. Bush and his lie to get us to invade Iraq, but even he didn’t push the lie that Iraq funded al Qaida or attacked us on 9/11. Make no mistake, that lie was spread by others and the Bush administration didn’t do anything to kill it. In fact, they went out of their way to avoid it with Dick Cheney going so far as to say he could see why some Americans would believe Iraq attacked us on 9/11, without saying whether it was true or not. They were bastards but even those bastards didn’t want to be on the record pushing baseless conspiracy theories. Being a person of low moral fiber and void of ethics and principles entirely, Donald Trump has no qualms about spreading bullshit.

Donald Trump has spread a lot of bullshit. Some more harmful than others. His first act as president (sic) was to send Sean Spicer out to lie about crowd sizes. While that lie and the ones about illegal voters might make you roll your eyes, his conspiracy theories about Obama wiretapping Trump Tower and the FBI engaging in a deep state coup only helps Russia. His attacks on Joe Scarborough being a murderer is sickening. And like after each of these stupid attacks, you think he can’t get any worse knowing full well he will. He did.

Yesterday, he tweeted a conspiracy theory that Martin Gugino, the 75-year-old man Buffalo police shoved to the ground during a protest was really an “antifa agent provocateur.” Yup. Donald Trump, who was probably inspecting the bunker behind the new fence and soldiers surrounding the White House when he sent that tweet, was pushing a conspiracy theory that originated on the dark web.

Donald Trump got the conspiracy theory from One America News. Even when Sean Hannity pushed the Seth Rich conspiracy theory, it was on his stupid opinion show and not part of an actual news story on Fox News. OAN, just like your crazy tinfoil-hat wearing uncle who lives in your grandmother’s attic you’re forced to see every Thanksgiving, does not know the difference between propaganda and news. That explains why Donald Trump watches it.

Trump tweeted, “Buffalo protester shoved by Police could be an ANTIFA provocateur. 75 year old Martin Gugino was pushed away after appearing to scan police communications in order to black out the equipment. I watched, he fell harder than was pushed. Was aiming scanner. Could be a set up?”

Previously, ONA pushed a conspiracy theory that Covid-19 was an effort by Bill Gates, George Soros, China, the Deep State in population control. What’s more fucked up than that is the President (sic) of the United States watches it. Of course, this is the same guy who thought the National Enquirer should have won a Pulitzer Prize and its chief should become the publisher of The New York Times.

The reporter who pushed this story on OANN is a Russian who has also worked for Sputnik, a Kremlin-controlled news outlet. Sputnik is just one of Russia’s weapons used to attack American elections. OANN is not a legitimate news organization which explains why they actually have a reporter at White House press briefings who is often called on by Press Secretary, Kayleigh McEnany to ask questions like, “Is it alarming that major media players, just to oppose you, are consistently siding with foreign state propaganda, Islamic radicals, and Latin gangs and cartels? And they work right here at the White House with direct access to you and your team?” Scooch over, Hannity. There’s a new burrower for Trump’s sphincter.

Where did OANN get this stupid conspiracy theory? You’ll be glad to know it’s not from 4chan or Qanon. Nope. It’s from Conservative Treehouse, the new 4chan. It’s still a home for tiki-torch Nazis wearing that racist frog symbol on their T-shirts.

Spreading this shit is dangerous. I bet you believe antifa is instigating riots and most protests aren’t peaceful. Republicans are pushing that shit despite there not being any facts to base it on. Now, the fucknuts will believe a victim of police brutality was an agent of antifa while not realizing there is no antifa organization. The real irony here is that every single one of these pushers of conspiracy theories, including Donald Trump, are “useful idiots” for Russia and are acting as…wait for it…agent provocateurs.

As usual, very few Republicans condemned Donald Trump’s tweet. Mitt Romney called it “shocking” while the rest of the Republican Senate pretended they hadn’t seen it. Cowards.

Yesterday, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said, “President Trump did a tweet today that surprises me — even after all the tweets that he has done.”

Cuomo added, “What do you think, it was staged? You think the blood coming out of his head was staged? Is that what you’re saying? You saw his head hit the pavement, you see blood on the pavement. He should apologize for that tweet, because it is wholly unacceptable. Show some decency, show some humanity… you’re the president of the United States.”

The only thing I disagree with Governor Cuomo on is that he called Donald Trump “President Trump.”

Another Antifa Terrorist


cjones06062020

Last Sunday, Donald Trump tweeted, “The United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization.”

Trump’s tweet is more catnip for his base than policy. In fact, it’s not a policy because there is no real Antifa.

Conservatives love to say “antifa.” They don’t know what it means but they love it. They group all left-wing protesters in with Antifa and blame liberals for them. Antifa is a loose movement, not an organization. The people who usually describe themselves as Antifa often side with liberal ideals, like cops killing unarmed black men is wrong, but they engage in more hostile actions. While liberals want to elect better politicians and make policy changes, Antifa believes change only comes through anarchy and destruction. They break stuff and burn shit down. They want to see the world burn, much in the same way Donald Trump does. They are more anarchist than liberal. No liberal would EVER burn down a Starbucks. That would be like Geraldo Rivera burning down a Hooters.

I walked at least 30 blocks with protesters Monday night. I encountered them again through the walk back to my hotel. Everyone I talked and listened to was talking about change with policy. They talked about police reform. When they talked about rioting, it was, “Don’t do it.”

I did encounter looters. I saw a few people throw water bottles but honestly, I think they came from the windows above us and were aimed at the protesters. The looters I ran into were few. The protesters were in the thousands. I saw fewer than ten looters. In fact, maybe I saw five. I know there was more looting and vandalism in the city than five people, but they are still a minority among protesters. The people marching, even the ones saying hostile things to police and back and forth chants like, “NYPD/Suck My Dick,” are not Antifa in the way Donald Trump and Republicans like to describe them. None of them talked about hurting anyone. But they are antifascist.

As I said, Republicans love to use antifa as a boogeyman. Donald Trump seeks to use antifa to further the divide and fear in this nation. Donald Trump runs on fear. His idiot son and namesake, Donald Trump Jr. shared a screenshot on Instagram of a tweet from an antifa organization calling for violence. But, because he’s a racist idiot like his father, he was unaware there are no antifa organizations and what he shared was a fake account from…wait for it…a white nationalist group. Did Donald Trump Jr. later clarify, issue a correction, and apologize? What do you think? I bet the 2.8 million followers of his on Instragram, at least the ones who aren’t bots, still believe it was a real tweet from Antifa.

Antifa is anti-fascist. That’s why Donald Trump doesn’t like them and his designation of them as a terrorist organization is complete bullshit. You can’t designate an organization as a terrorist group if there’s no organization. He may as well label the flying monkeys from the Wizard of Oz as a terrorist organization. Basically, it’ll be a Trump tweet designation but no official government designation. But it’ll still go over well with his hateful base, especially with the racists, and they’ll believe it’s an official government declaration.

Donald Trump is supported by racists and Donald Trump supports them back. They may be the only group he’s truly loyal to. While he’s pandering to the religious right with a photo-op in front of a church he doesn’t attend with a Bible he’s never read, he believes in the racist agenda. He defends tiki-torch Nazis, makes racist comments, retweets racist organizations, and quotes distinguished racists from history. David Duke rejoiced and said it was the best thing for his racist cause when Donald Trump claimed there were “good people” marching with Nazis.

Attacking Antifa is a great way for Donald Trump to distract for white nationalists. Right-wing extremists, white nationalists, and neo-Nazis are responsible for the majority of terrorist attacks in this country. No conservative talks about that. And, unlike Antifa, they’re organized. They have leaders. Their little groups have names, chapters,uniforms, and people are designated with ranks. Donald Trump doesn’t tweet against white nationalists. You’ll never see a Trump tweet against Proud Boys. Instead, he hires white nationalists to create immigration policy in the White House.

Donald Trump is a racist and a white nationalist. Donald Trump is the biggest supporter of America’s most dangerous terrorists. He won’t even criticize them in a tweet.

Donald Trump is a fascist. While he’s screaming about violent anti-fascist, he’s tear-gassing and flash bombing peaceful protesters for a photo-op while curfews are going up and people are being arrested for going outside at night. This is fascism.

I refuse to lie down and allow the fascists to have this country. While I don’t believe in or encourage violence I am anti-fascist and I will continue to oppose the right-wing, militant, nationalistic, xenophobic, racist policies of Donald Trump.

I am Antifa. Come get me.

The-Anti-Anti-Fascist


cjones08262019

Other than voting and drawing political cartoons, I am not an activist. By that I mean, I don’t protest. I don’t sign petitions. I don’t write or call my congressman or senators (they’d call me first). I don’t contribute money to causes or political campaigns. I don’t plant signs in my front yard. I don’t put political bumper stickers on my car. So, to all those people sending me petitions and things through Facebook and Twitter messengers I “HAVE” to share…STOP! And while we’re on the subject, stop sending me memes and other political cartoons too. I just don’t need the aggravation, OK? But I digress.

I don’t participate because of the entire journalism ethics thing. I can draw cartoons opposing Trump but I can’t be part of a political organization opposing Trump. Being part of an organization makes me biased while attacking Trump. Being independent while attacking Trump makes me impartial. A lot of people don’t understand that and that’s OK, just so long as I do. Conservative cartoonists don’t understand it but they don’t do ethics anyway.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, I went to a Trump rally. I talked to a lot of Trump supporters. I did not protest. I didn’t wave a sign. I didn’t scream or even heckle. In fact, I didn’t even tell one Trump supporter my thoughts and opinions about Trump. I wasn’t there to tell them my opinion. I went to try to understand theirs. I failed because I still don’t understand it. But, I went to observe and learn. It was terrible and I needed a power washer to scrub the residual hate off me, but again, I digress.

So, I oppose Trump but I’m not in an organization. Am I part of a movement? Am I the Resistance? One reason among many that I oppose Trump is because I am anti-fascist. Donald Trump is a fascist wannabe. Does my opposition to Trump make me Antifa? I don’t know.

Here’s the thing, kids. Antifa is not an organization. It’s a movement. It’s not a Democratic movement. It’s not a liberal movement. It’s not even a large movement. It’s anti-fascist. Many of them engage in violence and destruction. A true liberal would never trash a Starbucks. I think I can say I’m anti-fascist without having to give the qualifier, “But I oppose violence and vandalism.” That gives control of the narrative to Donald Trump and Republicans.

Yesterday, there was a demonstration from the far-right racist organization Proud Boys in Portland, Oregon. The founder of Proud Boys describes his group as a “fraternal organization” for young “Western chauvinist” men. Their rally was a so-called “End Domestic Terrorism” rally, but they weren’t there to end mass shootings by white guys with manifestos repeating Donald Trump’s rhetoric. Their goal was to get Antifa declared as a domestic terrorist organization.

Proud Boys is a fascist organization that only admits men and promotes violence. The Southern Poverty Law Center has described it as a “Far-Right Fight Club.” Except these guys are too stupid not to talk about Fight Club. One of the initiations for membership is to get into a “major” fight “for the cause.” Another rule for Proud Boys is that they refrain from masturbating which I’m sure isn’t frustrating because being a punchy, angry, right-wing racist in a pro-chauvinism group while having a bad haircut and wearing a polo shirt must make you a chick magnet.

While the founder disavowed the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville where a white nationalist killed Heather Heyer and another was convicted for assaulting DeAndre Harris, Proud Boys were there participating with other racist organizations.

For their hate rally in Portland yesterday, Antifa rose to oppose them. Guess which group Donald Trump tweeted an attack of. Guess which group he didn’t mention.

Earlier this month, while speaking to reporters about white supremacists violence, Trump said that “Antifa” and “other kinds of supremacy” were similarly concerning. Trump can’t criticize white racists without a qualifier. And, what other kinds of supremacy? Nachos supreme?

Yesterday, he tweeted that Antifa should be designated as a “terrorist organization.” Last month, Republican senators Bill Cassidy and Ted Cruz introduced a bill designating Antifa as a terrorist organization.

Yesterday, Representative Dan Crenshaw sent a tweet complaining that Antifa was violent while Hong Kong protesters were demanding freedom and actually fighting fascists. With the amount of violence and shutdowns of highways, businesses, and even the city’s international airport, maybe Crenshaw shouldn’t be comparing Antifa to the Hong Kong protests. Or course, it’s also possible that Crenshaw is doing the thing Republicans always do and that is talking about something that they don’t know anything about.

Why are these Republicans attacking a movement, not an organization, while ignoring murders by white supremacists? Why haven’t any of them mentioned “Proud Boys?” Surely, Ted Cruz has to have an issue with the masturbation policy.

I wish Antifa wouldn’t engage in violence and vandalism. That will not create real change and only give stupid Republicans a false narrative to help deflect from racist organizations, the base of their support. Republicans are afraid to criticize racist.

But, why designate Antifa as a terrorist organization? Wouldn’t they have to be an organization first? Has Antifa actually killed anyone? Donald Trump supporters have killed more people than Antifa. Can we designate MAGAts as a terrorist organization?

Yesterday in Portland, 13 arrests were made and the mayor described it as “largely peaceful.” So much for that terrorist narrative. The majority of domestic terrorist attacks are committed by white racists, yet you don’t hear Republicans talking about any designations for them, if they even talk about them. Designating Antifa as a terrorist organization is a fascist move. It’s legally designating protest and dissent against Donald Trump as terror.

Personally, I’m more concerned about the movement that guns down people in churches, synagogues, mosques, schools, theaters, festivals, and retail stores than I am about the group that’s going to make it a bit more difficult for me to get my frozen mocha. And, I am intense about frozen mochas.

I am against fascism and I should be able to say that without the qualifier “but I’m against violence.” I draw cartoons opposing fascism. Does this make me the Resistance or Antifa? I will not allow fascist Republicans to designate my cartoons and free speech as a form of terrorism, but that’s where they’re trying to take us.

I will not fit into your narrative. When you scream against Antifa, you’re the one who needs the qualifier. While shouting against Antifa, you need to state you’re against fascism. If you don’t, from here on I’m just going to assume you’re a fascist…just like Donald Trump.

The Very Famous WHITE WHITE House


cjones09182017

This week, congress sent a resolution condemning neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and the violence in Charlottesville. It was negotiated on a bipartisan basis by the delegation from Virginia, my state. It passed unanimously in the House and Senate. Donald Trump has signed it. Roy Wood Jr. of The Daily Show said, “Donald Trump is the only white dude I know who had to sign paperwork to prove that he don’t like Nazis. ‘Nazis aren’t my friends…yeah, we’re gonna need that in writing.'”

I just hope Trump doesn’t use this as an excuse to display more racist behavior, like every white guy believing having a black friend allows him to sing the N-word each time it comes up in Cee Lo Green’s song, Fuck You. “Oops. She’s a gold digger. Just thought you should know….” Yeah, don’t do that.

I know a fellow cartoonist who feels the need to tell everyone he’s not a racist, and he constantly gives out examples to prove he’s not one. I know a lot of people who don’t have to do that, probably because they’re not racist. Donald Trump has to do that.

This week, the White House is screaming for ESPN to fire Jemele Hill for tweeting out that Trump is a white supremacist. This is probably the first time the White House has demanded a personality from a television network be fired. Even the Obama White House didn’t ask NBC to fire that reality show dude who claimed he wasn’t born in this country in addition to being a racist. Who was that guy again? Oh yeah. Donald Trump.

Because, screaming for a network to fire a black person isn’t enough for one week, Trump doubled down on equating anti-fascists with Nazis. But, it’s OK. He now has paperwork saying he condemns Nazis…even though he thinks there were good people marching with them in Charlottesville chanting “blood and soil” and “Jews will not replace us.”

He also claimed he couldn’t condemn Nazis immediately after Charlottesville because he “needed to know all the facts.” But today, facts be damned. Trump tweeted about the latest attack in London, and probably gave out intelligence encouraging the terrorists to attack again, kill people, and hurry before the British catch them.

Trump has trouble hiding his racism because he is a racist. He has called Mexicans “rapists and murderers.” He said a judge can’t judge his sham-university case because the judge is Mexican. He’s trying to kick brown children out of this nation. And, let’s not forget his travel ban on Muslims.

So, while Congress has forced Trump to sign a piece of paper stating that he’s not a friend to Nazis, they haven’t taken away his wolf whistle.

The White House wants people fired who call the president a racist. Well, I’m calling him a racist. Donald Trump, you’re a racist. I have no doubt. Your supporters are enablers for whom racism is not a deal breaker. Though, most of them are racists too.

I assure you of this, no racist fucks are going to stop me from drawing more cartoons.

Creative note: This is kind of a bonus cartoon. You’re getting another cartoon Saturday morning. There are too many topics. In my last post, I mentioned two other ideas I passed over last night. This wasn’t one of them.

I want to thank everyone who has donated in the past. Your support helps me continue creating cartoons and columns with a little less stress in my life. Between competing syndicates with much larger resources, timid editors, and Trump supporters who attempt to intimidate the editors who do publish anything that criticizes their idol, it’s a challenge to make a career out of this. So your support (if you can) is appreciated.

Nazi The Equivalence


cjones09032017

At the start of World War II, nearly every Scandinavian country declared neutrality. It only worked out for Sweden. Norway and Denmark were invaded by Germany. Even Iceland didn’t escape, and they were invaded by the good guys when England stormed their shores in what should become a comical movie (go read up on it).

Finland may be the most interesting case. At the start of the war they were opposed to Nazi Germany, as Hitler was aligned with the Soviet Union, Finland’s enemy. Finland attempted to build a defense structure with help from England, to no avail. After Hitler betrayed Stalin, Finland found itself on the same side as the Nazis. This was most peculiar because Finland didn’t send their Jewish population to German concentration camps (many fought for Finland), and they were the only Axis nation that was also a democracy.

Technically, democratic Finland was an enemy of the allies, including the United States. Finland actually succeeded in defending their homeland from the Soviet Union, and never initiated the war, or invaded anyone. However, they still had to pay a cost as they lost ten percent of their land, including their second largest city, and pay war reparations, even though they weren’t the belligerents.

Why did they get lumped in with the bad guys and have to lose so much when all they really wanted to do was protect their homeland? Because they sided with Nazis.

If you’re a conservative or have friends who complain about protesters and activists and throw all the attention on Antifa, or Black Lives Matter, then they’re siding with Nazis too.

Why are conservatives and Republicans more focused on people against fascism and who want cops to stop engaging in police brutality? Because Nazis are closer in alignment to Republican beliefs. That’s not a group you want on your side, so conservatives’ best defense (in their little minds) is to deflect, ignore, and engage in false equivalence.

And, it is a false equivalence but, let’s patronize it for a minute and look at our players.

Black Lives Matter is protesting for an end to police brutality, and are asking for more community oversight of police departments, stricter limits on the use of force, independent investigations of police misconduct, community representation in municipal governments, body cameras, better training, an end to “policing for profit,” demilitarization, and union contracts that don’t protect misbehaving police officers from being held accountable. Seriously, they should not even be in this conversation, but asshole conservatives placed them here.

Antifa is more complicated. Antifa is hard to understand as they don’t understand themselves. There is not a national Antifa organization. It can basically include anyone who is against fascism. Some who label themselves as Antifa do engage in violence and vandalism, such as punching alt-right dickheads and trashing their local Starbucks. While Indiana Jones makes punching Nazis look like an erstwhile endeavor, it’s not something I condone. And, I’ve yet to meet a liberal who wouldn’t get upset if his or her local Starbucks was firebombed. There is a huge difference between being a liberal who really dislikes Donald Trump and anarchists who hurt people and break stuff. The objective of ending fascism is a noble one and I believe we can achieve that goal without torching my favorite spot to get a large mocha (or is it “grande’?”).

So, anarchist who engage in violence and vandalism, cut it out. It really hurts your cause more than it helps…as in, it doesn’t help at all. If anything, it helps Nazis because it gives them footage from Breitbart to share on Facebook.

When you look at the objectives of our three groups here, the equivalence is false. I don’t see a fair comparison between people who want to end police violence and fascism, and assholes who strive for racial superiority who march with tiki torches while shouting “Jews will not replace us” and “blood and soil.” At their very worst, Antifa is punching people and breaking windows while Nazis are driving cars into crowds of people and killing them.

We can denounce the violence committed by some members of the Antifa community, if it is an actual community. I’m not on the email list and I don’t get a newsletter. But, if your focus is on Antifa and not on Nazis or the KKK, you’re enabling the racist.

Pointing and screaming about Antifa may deflect attention from where you’re standing for a while, but eventually, people are going to notice when that spot where you’re standing is among Nazis.

Pucker Up For Free Speech


cjones05042017

With freedom of speech being perhaps our strongest guarantee you have to take the good with the bad.

While we celebrate Martin Luther King telling us that he had a dream, we have to stomach Ann Coulter vomiting up such filth as “It would be a much better country if women did not vote,” and “We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity.”

A lot has been made of Ann Coulter’s speech being cancelled at Berkeley. Did they cancel her to shut her up or was it because of concerns for her safety? I don’t think anyone should ever protest Coulter just for the simple reason that she likes it. I get that because I love my hate mail. When you protest Coulter that gives her more to cry about, more press coverage, and bigger paychecks and book deals. She’s already written 12. Do you want to help her publish another?

I support the likes of Ann Coulter speaking freely but don’t make a mistake about her. She’s not a champion of freedom of speech. First off, she has to get paid and she’s more of a brand than anything. Second, she’s an opponent of facts and information.

It’s fair to criticize and question the press. We should always question where information comes from. That’s how the press gets their information. But anyone targeting the press, such as Donald Trump and Ann Coulter, are not champions of freedom of the press or freedom of speech. They’re only champions for their speech which is what they accuse liberals of.

The other day I saw a comment from a conservative friend who wrote “the trust is gone with any print or media. I do think that Carlson and Hannity speak the most truth. Maybe because I want to believe in something on the air.” All she needs to believe in something, like our president, is the desire to believe it. She doesn’t need facts. She needs confirmation bias. And if anything is contradictory to what this person wants to believe, then it’s fake news.

Any person who paints the media as having a liberal agenda, including your parents who you can’t discuss politics with anymore, is an opponent of free speech. They’re an opponent because they’re telling a lie, or in most cases, repeating a lie. They want to shut down what they disagree with. A poll came out Thursday that revealed 52% of Republicans believe Obama spied on Trump. That’s some serious bullshit to be consuming there. It’s like all the Republicans who choose to believe Obama is a Kenyan-Muslim coming to take your guns. Any newspaper or network which tells you the facts about each of those will be labeled “fake news” by conservatives. Isn’t it funny that information now has opponents?

While I wouldn’t cry if Rush Limbaugh, Breitbart, and Infowars all went out of business, I support their right to exist and feed the ignorant dumbasses of our nation. But they’re not champions of free speech either since it’s not as much conservative opinion they’re dishing out (which is fine), but false information. I also want Fox News to stick around just so conservatives can have their media and not get the irony when they complain about the “lame-stream media,” that Fox News has the most viewers.

That’s the price of free speech. Sometimes when you kiss the toad you don’t get a prince or MLK. What you get is some “God-Hates-Fags” fucker from Westboro or Ann Coulter.
