AntiVaxxers

Wormy MAGAts


Cjones08262021

Honestly, I didn’t know about this issue until I saw a few cartoons on it. At first, it was just a couple of cartoons by the hyper-partisan guys who go more for Facebook likes than for actually being published in news outlets. I watch news all day long (it’s on right now) and I had not heard of this. Then, I saw one cartoon (just one) by a cartoonist who is very esteemed and I thought, “This might actually be a thing.” So I pulled up a story and holy shit. It is a thing. Antivaxxers are taking deworming medication designed for livestock as a vaccine against the coronavirus. Shockingly, doctors don’t think this is a keen idea.

OK, first off…if you think the vaccines are bad for you then how in the hell do you get to cattle dewormer medication? Do you have to go to a veterinarian? The drug is ivermectin and there was a tweet advising that nobody should take it to treat the coronavirus stating, “You are not a horse. You are not a cow. Seriously, y’all. Stop it.” Do you know who tweeted that? Bill Maher? Jim Carrey? Me? No. The freakin’ Food and Drug Administration (FDA) tweeted that. Why, it reminds me of that time the FDA had to tell Americans, “DO NOT DRINK BLEACH!” There was also that time the FDA had to tell people not to drink aquarium cleaner.

Mississippi has the highest rate in the nation of deaths and hospitalizations from covid. It has the lowest vaccination rate in the country. And now, it has the highest rate of human deaths from dumb fuckers taking cow pills. I think it’s in pill form. I don’t know. I’ve never owned a cow.

Dr. Thomas Dobbs, the Mississippi’s top health official, said, ““You wouldn’t get your chemotherapy at a feed store. I mean, you wouldn’t treat your pneumonia with your animal’s medication,” he added. “It can be dangerous to get the wrong doses of medication, especially for something that’s meant for a horse or a cow.” Moo, beyotches.

The FDA warns you can overdose on ivermectin, which can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, hypotension (low blood pressure), allergic reactions (itching and hives), dizziness, ataxia (problems with balance), seizures, coma, and death.” It can cause mooing, changing your name to “Bessy,” and excessive cud chewing. It’s udderly ridiculous.

To find people who may have consumed the moo juice, state health officials are now going through Mississippi ringing cow bells to see if any humans come running.

It’s especially dangerous for Trump supporters to take a worm-killing drug since they are MAGAts.

Note: I should be given a cookie for making it through this blog with only one udder joke.

Burqas and Babies


cjones08212021

Whining about mask mandates is a first-world problem. The debate over vaccines is a first-world problem. People in a lot of other nations can’t debate vaccines because they don’t have access to them. Here in this country, we have the privilege of faux outrage. We have access to vaccines to refuse to take. If we didn’t have the vaccines, Republicans would have to go back to screaming about Critical Race Theory and whether or not Mr. Potato Head has a ding-dong.

White Republican males have to be the most persecuted people in the history of persecuted people. They even claim that teaching about other people’s persecution is persecuting them.

Conservatives are screaming about mask mandates in schools. They refer to masks as muzzles which only demonstrates their stupidity. They’re attacking scientists, doctors, and educators because they’re trying to save lives. The fact is, face masks do save lives. Anyone who is willing to expose their child to the coronavirus for their partisan politics should have child protective services called on them.

Meanwhile in Afghanistan, women don’t have the luxury of debating covering their faces. In Afghanistan, mandatory means mandatory. Here, you can at least opt out with a doctor’s note. Even places that require vaccinations will give you an out if you have proof of a recent negative covid test. There are no excuses in Afghanistan. Women in Afghanistan have been beaten for not covering up. When people start beating you for not wearing a face mask at Walmart, let me know.

The real irony is that the people in the United States protesting mask mandates and vaccines while shouting about freedom are closer aligned to the Taliban than they are to democracy. MAGA and the Taliban are both cults.

While our failure in Afghanistan is an international embarrassment, so is the refusal to be vaccinated in this nation. It’s a huge embarrassment to the world that so many Americans refuse to protect their children in service to their cult.

Being outraged over having to wear a face mask is a first-world problem. Your being a whiny little…baby…is a luxury.

Vaccine Passports


Cjones08102021

This anti-vaccine nonsense has gotta stop. Facts and science have proven the antivax nonsense is just that, nonsense. At this point, if you’re still pushing the anti-vaccine crap, it’s out of tribal and partisan politics, narcissism, and being stubborn. I know it’s hard to admit when you’re wrong. It leaves a bad taste in your mouth…but that goes away when you accept responsibility. When you admit you were wrong, you get to reclaim some credibility.

For now, most of the people warning against vaccines are the same people who told us back in February, 2020, this pandemic wouldn’t kill more people than the flu and would pale in comparison to the H1N1 pandemic that occurred during the Obama administration. They were wrong but they never owned being wrong. Instead, they just moved on to the next bullshit talking point.

Vaccines are not a money-back guarantee, especially since they’re mostly free. I say “mostly” because we are paying for them but when you walk into a clinic or pharmacy, you are not paying out of pocket. Sure, this is socialism but hey…the vaccines are also proving that works. Getting a vaccine is not a guarantee you won’t catch the coronavirus. What the vaccine does is give you antibodies for the virus. Most people who catch covid after being vaccinated experience very light symptoms if any at all. The fact is, over 90 percent of those hospitalized are unvaccinated.

The unvaccinated are also screaming about vaccine passports. The idea here is that you need proof you have been vaccinated to enter establishments and events. The alternative to most of these requirements is that you have proof of a negative covid test from within the past 72 hours. From personal experience, the swab up your nose is much more violating than the needle in your arm for the vaccine.

The needle is tiny. I turned my head both times and had to ask the nurse administrating the shot if she was done. That’s how little I felt. Yeah, you feel soreness later, but you don’t feel much from the needle. It’s really small. I should point out, I HATE HATE HATE needles. I’m a baby with shots. I’m also a baby with the swab going up my nose and I dreaded it. And you know something, I had every right to dread it. It was horrible. When you see the swab, you are terrified. The swab is also extremely long. It’s not like your household Q-tip. This swam is about as long as those sticks they use to get leaves and crocodiles out of swimming pools, and they use this one to brush your brain.

You have a choice in getting the vaccine but you may not have a choice in a swab going up your nasal cavity to tickle your brain.

The passports are a great idea. It tells me the venue I’m entering is safe. an added bonus is knowing there will be fewer MAGAts in there. When I was asked for my vaccination card at Yankee Stadium, I didn’t feel like I was being suppressed by the SS. And, if you don’t have a card, you can still get in. You just might have to sit with some MAGAts.

The people screaming about these so-called passports are comparing it to Nazi Germany’s restrictions against Jews and how they were marked for travel. Once again, white conservatives are using the oppression and persecution of others to make a case for their imaginary persecutions. The people with the most privilege cry that they have the least.

You’re not being suppressed because of your religion, race, political views, sex, or sexual orientation. You are not being oppressed the way you have always supported the oppression of others.

Antivaxxers say vaccine passports violate their freedom. They scream they should have the same rights as the vaccinated to enter establishments. But here’s the thing, fuckers: None of us would have any of these freedoms if there weren’t vaccines for the coronavirus. We would still be in lockdown. And you have the same right as anyone else to get vaccinated. When you are denied the vaccine, that’s when you can cry about your freedom.

Antivaxxers want to enjoy the fruits of the labor put in by those who wore face masks and received vaccinations. Just get the vaccination and you can go to Starbucks, Dunkins, Walmart, Cheesecake Factory, etc, etc.

The antivaxxers are doing all they can to prolong the pandemic. It is now a pandemic of the unvaccinated. I think what the antivaxxers are doing is anti-American. I think it’s a sin. It’s a sin to be willing to kill people for your tribal politics and narcissism.

I don’t believe in Heaven but if you’re doing all you can to prolong a pandemic that kills people, I think you should burn.

Creative note: I forgot to mention the concept for this cartoon was in my last batch of roughs. And, it’s part of the reason why I went ahead and drew this cartoon. I was afraid another cartoonist might be “influenced” by it so I better get my finished cartoon of it out there.

Covid Rickshaw


CNN08012021

Here’s your cartoon for this week’s CNN Opinion newsletter. Please sign up to get these in your inbox every Sunday. 

I drew two other cartoons on the coronavirus and vaccines this weekend in addition to this one. I may draw one on vaccine passports tonight.

Do you remember that Devin Nunes Cow twitter account that was newsworthy last year or so? Yeah, that guy…or cow…retweeted this cartoon. That cow retweet got over 700 likes, 200 retweets, and a shit ton of comments with many of them accusing me of…wait for it….fatophobia.

Apparently, I’m being mean to fat people. Can I use the fat-friend defense? Some of my best friends are fat? There are fat people in my family? I’m getting fat?

Here’s the thing, kids. The guy being pulled up the hill is supposed to be heavy. It’s hard to draw a heavy skinny guy. Fact.

Stop being a bunch of fat crybabies. I kid. I kid.

Too Late To Vaccinate


Cjones08022021

I don’t look for confrontations when I go out. I’m not a club person and when I do get a beer in a bar, I usually wanna keep to myself unless I’m hanging out with a friend. My rule for hearing people say stupid shit or make racist comments is: If they’re not talking to me, let it go. If they do address me, then I have a moral responsibility to let them know I don’t accept that shit. Usually when I do this, I try to do it as diplomatically as possible which can be difficult when you are calling someone a racist and when you are me.

There was that time someone said, “So you think you’re better than me because I say the N-word?,” except he didn’t say “N-word.” He said that other word. I replied, “Since I’m not a racist fuck. Yes. Yes, I do think I’m better than you.” For some reason, it went downhill from there.

When it comes to racist comments, if I don’t at least say I’m not down with the racist program, I feel as though I’m betraying everyone in my life who is non-white. I have friends and family members who aren’t white. I don’t want to be two-faced.

When I talked about this on Facebook earlier this week, a conservative said I should question how I look since these MAGAts assume I’m one of them. It’s true. I do look like one of them. I fit the demographic, other than having teeth and not dragging my knuckles. I am a middle-aged white male and 58 percent of us voted for Donald Trump. Of course, I did not.

And it’s not just conservatives who will assume I’m a Trumper. A few weeks ago, I had an online exchange with a fellow liberal cartoonist where we disagreed on something and his readers started calling me a racist. In his readers’ defense, the other cartoonist did lie and claim I said, “Racism doesn’t exist anywhere.” Of course, I’d never say anything close to that but I fit the demographic of someone who would. Sure, maybe his readers could have read what I actually wrote instead of being a bunch of ravenous lemmings going over a cliff for a lie, but that’s how social media works now. Maybe that’s the trade off for benefiting from white privilege my entire life. Most people who look like me won’t even admit white privilege exists. Remember when they wouldn’t admit the coronavirus pandemic didn’t exist? The same people who claim white privilege isn’t a thing also claimed the virus was a hoax.

The people who look like I do began the pandemic lying about it. They claimed it didn’t exist. Then they claimed the numbers of deaths were inflated and fabricated. They claimed it wasn’t worse than the flu. They claimed we didn’t need mask mandates or that we should quarantine. They claimed we didn’t even need to mask up at all. They claimed we shouldn’t shut down. They claimed vaccines don’t work while claiming hydroxychloroquine does. They claim there are tracking devices in the vaccines. They spent a year and a half attacking the people trying to help them. They spent a year and a half attacking Dr. Anthony Fauci and now, they’re claiming he helped create the virus and is a murderer. Seriously. A United States senator has spread this lie.

These lies are killing people. The president (sic) who admitted he played down the virus at the beginning of it should be accused of murder before Dr. Fauci. The “liberate Michigan” people should be accused of murder before Dr. Fauci. Every talking head on Fox News should be accused of murder before the scientists are accused. It’s these people and their lies who are bringing covid back…which is again killing people.

Which brings us back to public confrontations.

I went out last Tuesday to a Mexican restaurant close to my house where I could take advantage of Taco Tuesday and grab a beer while I watched the Olympics. I was sitting at the bar with my street tacos and a beer when this guy, in my demographic, got up to leave, but just as he was leaving, Dr. Fauci appeared on one of the TVs. The guy nudged me and said, “There’s Dr. Mumbler who kills people.” My first reaction was, “What?” I mean, “Dr. Mumbler?” What? The guy said it again. I recovered and replied, “I don’t know who Dr. Mumbler is but that’s Dr. Anthony Fauci who’s is an American hero despite the slanders from fucknuts like you.” Yeah, I don’t think I made a new friend. He didn’t say anything else and got out of there. I told the bartender, “I don’t like that.” She said, “I’ll allow it.” She didn’t like him either.

If that guy made those same comments, but they weren’t directed at me, I would have let it go. But what was I supposed to do, nod and play along? Maybe I could have done it without the “fucknut,” but…I’ll get over it. Perhaps what annoyed me most was him assuming I was like him. Damn this demographic!

That guy was an asshole. The gentleman I talked to yesterday was not.

I took a Lyft to my post office yesterday (there will be a blog later about was waiting for me at the post office). My driver was not wearing a face mask as he was supposed to. In fact, the second Lyft driver I got also was not wearing a face mask. But, the first driver (yes, he was white) started talking about the pandemic and the delta variant. He did not say if he was vaccinated or not and I didn’t ask. But I believe he was not. He said there was no reason to get vaccinated since it wouldn’t protect you from the new variant.

The man didn’t seem like he was an antivaxxer. He didn’t seem as though he was politicizing it. He didn’t seem hateful. But he was ignorant. I told him, as politely as possible (I didn’t want to affect my rating) that the vaccine doesn’t guarantee you won’t catch the coronavirus but it’s very effective against it. It’s very effective against you catching it. And if you do catch it after becoming vaccinated, it’s very effective in making your case mild. The fact is, over 90% of people being hospitalized for covid now are UNVACCINATED. I don’t think I convinced this man because he’s been fed bullshit for a year and a half. The Fox News propaganda is a lot to overcome.

The driver told me he can’t trust scientist because they keep changing the science. Nobody is changing the science. The only thing that changes is the virus. It has changed. That’s what a variant is. Didn’t you watch Loki?

Thanks to that propaganda, only 48% of our nation is vaccinated. Thanks to that propaganda, the delta variant is bringing covid back and increasing hospitalizations again. Thanks to the right-wing bullshit, people are having to be hospitalized. And according to some doctors, that’s when they ask to be vaccinated.

Alix Zacharsk, a nurse at Jackson Health System in Miami (same city where the weird package I received came from) said that when young people infected with covid arrive at her hospital, they ask if they can get vaccinated. Unfortunately, no. You cannot get vaccinated while you’re infected. You can get vaccinated after the infection has run its course.

Dr. Brytney Cobia of Grandview Medical Center in Alabama said a lot of their covid patients who change their minds about vaccinations don’t ever get the chance to be vaccinated.

Dr. Cobia wrote on Facebook, “One of the last things they do before they’re intubated is beg me for the vaccine. I hold their hand and tell them that I’m sorry, but it’s too late.”

She also wrote, “A few days later when I call time of death, I hug their family members and I tell them the best way to honor their loved one is to go get vaccinated and encourage everyone they know to do the same.”

If you’re not infected yet, it’s not too late for you to be vaccinated. Stop being an idiot and get vaccinated. Hell, you can even get vaccinated while bitching about vaccinations. Just don’t tell anyone you got it. That’s what Tucker Carlson and Donald Trump did. They didn’t tell anyone because it didn’t fit their propaganda, but they were sure to save their own asses while not caring about yours.

Donald Trump ignored medical advice and health guidelines and he caught covid. He can thank his ignorance for that. So when the vaccine came about, he made sure to take it because having covid nearly killed him. Yeah, they didn’t tell you that either. But since Donald Trump is a selfish piece of crap, he didn’t tell anyone he received the vaccination. He and Melania took it in secret while President Biden, Vice-President Kamala Harris, and former presidents Jimmy Carter, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama all took it publicly. But maybe Donald Trump wasn’t intending to play down the vaccine and was only concerned that if he took the vaccine on camera, we’d all see his pasty flabby arms.

It’s too late to get the vaccine when they stick a tube down your throat…or you’re put into a hole in the ground.

If you are unvaccinated, politicized the pandemic, and went to war over it, you have lost. Florida governor Ron DeSantis claimed victory before his state started to lead the nation in covid cases. He’s still fighting the war and attacking Dr. Fauci…even though he’s already lost the war.

You lost. It’s time to end your war and politicization of the vaccine. Take the vaccine. Your stupid argument of having the right not to vaccinate is like your right to throw punches. That right ends where my nose begins. Take the vaccine. Don’t be selfish and just do it for yourself. Do it for your friends, family, community, and nation.

That’s the hardest thing to get through to conservatives. They are selfish and they typically only do things for themselves. Maybe if fucknuts on Fox News told them to do it for the greater good, they’d get vaccinated and help their country defeat this virus. Nah, the “greater good” sounds too much like socialism.

Fine, if you won’t do it for your country, do it for yourself. They don’t vaccinate graves.

Anti-Vaxxer Paradise


Cjones05032021

I’ll write a blog for this cartoon later today. It’s the first of the month (in case you’re a Republican, May), and I need to get to my post office and I’d like to do it before noon.

Other than that, both of my proofers, Hilary and Laura, had very strong reactions to today’s cartoon. I acknowledge, this is terrible.

Now for the blog:

I got an Uber to my post office and made it within a minute of the window closing. As it turned out, I didn’t need it but you never know. Sometimes I have package or the mail ladies have put someone else’s mail into my box. Anyway, I decided to stop at a bar to write this and get some food afterward. As I got to the bar, I discovered stools were back at the bar.

See, over the past year, there has been no sitting at bars in Virginia. What this means is, you sit at a table away from the bar and you’re supposed to be six feet apart from other people. If you want to meet a bunch of covid deniers, go to a bar.

Bars have been forced to comply with state covid rules. Of course, they hate that. Covid has hurt their business just as it’s hurt everyone else’s business. But bars have taken it personally. I can see why they want to be covid deniers since they have often been hotspots.

As I came into this bar, I asked about the seats at the bar, and the bartender told me it was OK now. These stools are not six feet apart and I know that rule is still in effect. I asked about this and she said, “Yeah, but we don’t care.”

That’s it right there. They don’t care. They don’t care about quarantines, social distance, or face masks and they’re all forms of oppression being inflicted by a Marxist government and the entire experience is worse than the Holocaust…if you listen to these people. On top of all that, they’re anti-vaxxers.

People have different reasons to oppose the vaccine. When I ask someone while I’m out in public (which is not often) if they’ve have or plan to get vaccinated, my question is usually met with resistance. I try not to challenge them and explain that I’m just taking a personal poll. I haven’t talked to anyone in person who is afraid of microchips in the vaccine and is waging a political war against it. Every one of the individuals I have talked to is  afraid or suspicious of the vaccine while also not identifying him/herself as anti-vaxxers.

I was talking to a young lady earlier this week who told me she was afraid because she heard covid vaccines can make some people sterile. There is no research supporting that but she believes it anyway. Others are suspicious because the vaccines are new and they don’t believe they’ve been tested enough. They don’t want to be guinea pigs. Add to that, the recent worries of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine giving blood clots as a rare side effect. Other people are just resistant to any vaccinations.

Covid cases in this country are going down and we may be at 60% immunity nationwide from vaccinations and people who have already contracted covid. Now, as the Biden administration is trying to convince more Americans to become vaccinated, the numbers of people getting vaccines are dropping. I’m looking forward to next week when I receive my second injection and I can see if the lines are just as long as they were three weeks ago when I got my first.

Leave it to the United States to make fear and politicization of vaccination to the coronavirus a first-world privilege. The people who complain the most about the pandemic robbing their liberties are the same assholes who don’t want to help in getting rid of the virus. While we’re refusing to vaccinate despite the availability of vaccines, thanks to having an adult president who tackles problems instead of gaslighting them, India is on fire.

These anti-vaxxers and anti-maskers politicizing the virus and acting like the pandemic is an assault on their liberties remind me of Libertarians.

Despite wanting a nation of zero regulations, no taxes, and no government authority whatsoever, you don’t see Libertarians moving to live in the mayhem that’s Somalia. Somalia is a libertarian paradise. Maybe none of them wants to wear puffy pirate shirts. Who knows. And you don’t see these anti-vaxxers moving to India to relish an environment of no face masks or vaccine shaming.

In India, only about two percent of the nation has been vaccinated. Its President, Nerandra Modi, is presenting a smiling face of denial about the pandemic while his nation has entered a second phase. In fact, the pandemic has not affected his proclivity for hugging.

Each day since April 22, India has recorded more than 300,000 new cases. On most days, India is recording more new cases than half the world, which Modi and Donald Trump probably both believe is flat. New Delhi, the capital, is now running out of wood for cremations and hospitals are full and lacking oxygen. Modi’s government is rejecting responsibility for failing to recognize that new variants were coming, and is blaming India’s state governments. Where have we heard that one before?

As our first relief checks had Trump’s signature, a vaccine passport in India has Modi’s face. These cretins want credit for the good stuff but none for the bad. We should be calling the coronavirus the “Trump Virus” in the United States, and in India, it should be the “Modi Virus.”

In India, the rate of vaccinations declined as the nation believed it was out of the woods. Over 300 million of India’s population are illiterate while the Trump cultist population of the United States is willfully ignorant. India had the vaccines. They exported over 66 billion to help other nations. Now, they need vaccines to be imported.

We can not ignore the pandemic. We can’t afford to politicize this. We can’t afford not to get vaccinated. We can’t afford to let our guards down. And, we can’t afford to sit at the bars.

Speaking of, I decided to sit at the bar as there was no one else here other than a couple of goobers at the gambling machines. Shortly after starting this column, the bar filled up and I was surrounded by mask-less bikers who were ignoring the six-foot rule. I am still not comfortable with that. I don’t believe we can be comfortable with that. I left the bar for a corner table far away from everyone, but they keep getting closer. I haven’t even ordered food yet but I may have to bail.

We can’t afford to let our guard down but when this pandemic is over and we can finally sit close to each other, I’m still going to want most of you fuckers to stay the fuck away from me.

Vaxxin’ Action


cjones05142019

I think putting guns in the hands of children will be as effective against school shootings as they would be against measles.

Stupid people and their dogma are killing children in this nation. Gun nuts and anti-vaxxers.

Refusing to vaccinate your child is bad enough for your child, but you’re spreading diseases to the rest of society. Riding on hoaxes, anti-vaxxers have created a public health crisis that’s led to over 700 reported cases of measles in 22 states. One person who has contributed to spreading the hoax that vaccinations are more harmful to children than the diseases is Donald Trump.

Trump, who is now saying that parents “have to get the shots,” previously helped spread the anti-vaxxers’ fears through Twitter. In 2012, the future president of the United States tweeted, “Massive combined inoculations to small children is the cause for big increase in autism.” As we know now, he wasn’t done being an idiot and making the world more dangerous. In 2014, he tweeted, “Healthy young child goes to doctor, gets pumped with massive shot of many vaccines, doesn’t feel good and changes – AUTISM. Many such cases!”

During a Republican debate in 2015, he said, “You take this little beautiful baby, and you pump — I mean, it looks just like it’s meant for a horse, not for a child.” Next thing you know, fucknuts have brought back raging cases of measles on an international scale.

These people are just the same over their gun obsession. People who scream, “Save the babies” over abortion will choose overcompensating for their small penis over the life of a child.

Every school shooting exposes that the pro-life crowd is less about life and more about control. It’s never been about the children, just like they’ve never been about patriotism, family values, responsible spending, or draining the swamp. Conservatives have spent the past several decades building a platform of lies. Thanks to Donald Trump, it’s painfully obvious.

Republicans express more concern for their guns than they do for children each time there’s a school shooting. Their answer to the problem is, more guns. While they argue that a good guy with a gun stops a bad guy with a gun, most examples show that doesn’t deter the bad guy and usually by the time the good guy can respond, the bad guy has created a death toll.

Republicans praised the good guy with a gun who shot at, and missed, the shooter in Sutherland Springs, Texas in 2017. They leave out the fact that the good guy didn’t start shooting until after 26 people were killed and the bad guy has depleted his ammunition supply. They also leave out that the good guy didn’t try to save one life from those who were shot, instead, chasing after the bad guy. Maybe in addition to fewer guns, we should have fewer Rambo movies.

Guns in the hands of children aren’t going to stop school shooters any better than they can take down a virus. We need vaccinations of every child in this nation…and fewer guns.

We need protection from viruses, guns, and conservative dogma because they all kill.

Be Complicit

What kind of person would want to be part of something that disparages, slanders, and disrespects Dear Leader and his sycophantic followers? Hopefully, you. 
Making a contribution supports my work and keeps the cartoons, columns, and videos coming. My income is from newspapers that subscribe to my work and small contributors. George Soros hasn’t sent me a million dollar check in weeks. Making a contribution of any amount, or buying a print for $40.00, makes you part of this specific resistance, and a member of Team Claytoonz (we’re still working on the name). You are complicit, an accomplice, and in cahoots (and whatever gangster terms we can think of) with this political satire pointing out that the stupid emperor has no clothes.
