Republicans like Ron DeSantis and those Republican fuckers in Tennessee claim that teaching Critical Race Theory, which they believe is all black history, makes white people feel bad. Well, maybe white people shouldn’t have done a bunch of horrible shitty things in the past.
These are the same fuckers who claim we should teach facts, even stuff we don’t want to confront…but leave out all that stuff about slavery and the civil rights era. They’re writing laws prohibiting Critical Race Theory from being taught in public schools, even though it hasn’t been taught in any public schools in the nation. But down in Florida, Ron DeSantis has personally banned A.P. courses that teach black history and has proposed a bill that would ban schools and businesses from teaching subjects or conducting training that would cause white people to feel guilt or discomfort on account of their race.
How do you tell a business what it can and can’t teach when it comes to idealogy? Isn’t that suppressing free speech?
People who think the Earth is only 6,000 years old shouldn’t have a say in what’s taught in history and science…or legislate it.
Meanwhile, 61 percent of Republicans want this nation to be declared a Christian nation. This nation was founded by a bunch of Christians, and all the founding fathers were white Christian men, but it was also founded as a secular nation. In case you’re a Republican, “secular” means non-religious. The state is not supposed to favor one religion over another. It’s in the Constitution you supposed constitutionalists keep harping about yet never seem to read except for half the sentence in the Second Amendment about boom sticks. But Republicans believe they should take precedence over other Americans. That includes religion, language, and even political candidates.
They try to overturn elections they lost and in some cases, they expel legislators for exercising free speech, another right protected by the Constitution. It’s also why Republicans are crawling up every woman’s uterus.
This brings us back to schools. Republicans aren’t just saying parents should have a right over what’s taught to their children, but white fundamentalist fucknut parents with sticks up their asses should be able to say what kind of education YOUR child gets. It’s why your kid in Florida can’t see David’s penis (which I’m sure is more impressive than the one I drew in today’s first cartoon.
Like most political cartoons, this is an exaggeration. Today’s Romans don’t feel guilt over the crucifixion of Jesus. In fact, most of them are Christians and Vatican City is in Rome. I hope Romans and the majority of Italians aren’t as uptight and ignorant as Republicans.
I did two cartoons and two blogs on Easter Sunday. Can I take the rest of the day off now?
