Republicans Heart Terrorists


Cjones06012021

Republicans do not want to investigate the January 6 terrorist attack on the Capitol. Why? Because it’ll anger Donald Trump. They serve Trump, not you, silly Billy.

The attack was by white nationalists. That’s the GOP base. They tried to overturn an election. If this crowd was black or antifa, the GOP would be all about a commission to investigate the attack.

House Minority Leader once said the quiet part out loud about a commission. It was into the investigation of Benghazi that Republicans held for several years, spending millions of dollars. There were ten investigations into Benghazi, six by the Republican-led House. Kevin McCarthy explicitly stated they were held only to hurt Hillary Clinton and he boasted they had lowered her approval ratings. Other than that, the investigations didn’t uncover anything. Now, they’re afraid a commission into the January 6 attack will hurt Republicans in the upcoming midterms. They’re also afraid it’ll piss off Trump and he won’t help them campaign or raise money.

McCarthy had several demands for there to be a commission. He demanded that Republicans have as many appointments as Democrats to the commission. He demanded that Republicans have subpoena power. He demanded that the investigation be over by the end of 2021.

In opposing a commission, McCarthy said, “For months, the Speaker of the House refused to negotiate in good faith on basic parameters that would govern a commission to examine the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.” Except, each of his demands were met. He got exactly what he demanded and still opposed the investigation.

Senate Minority Leader Moscow Mitch McFucknuts also opposes it and said we shouldn’t keep “litigating” the past. This was five months ago. Meanwhile, Republicans in Arizona are litigating the past by recounting ballots seven months after the election.

The House passed a bill to create the commission. It needs ten Republicans to join Democrats for it pass in the Senate. Thursday, Gladys Sicknick, the mother of Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick, along with the slain officer’s girlfriend, met with Republican senators to try to convince them to vote for the commission.

Thirteen Republican senators refused to attend the meeting out of cowardice.

Gladys Sicknick issued a statement saying, “My son, Capitol Police Officer, Brian Sicknick, died on January 7, 2021. He died because of the insurrectionists who stormed the Capitol Building on January 6.”

“He and his fellow officers fought for hours and hours against those animals who were trying to take over the Capitol Building and our Democracy, as we know it. While they were fighting, congressmen and senators were locking themselves inside their offices. According to some who were barricaded in their offices said it looked like tourists walking through the Capitol. Really?”

Republican congressmen and senators also lock themselves in their offices out of fear of having to meet the mother of a cop killed by MAGA terrorists.

Ms. Sicknick only received three commitments out of the 50 Republicans in the Senate. She has Mitt Romney, Lisa Murkowski, and Susan Collins. As to the rest, she asked, “How can they not be doing the right thing?”

Sicknick said, “Not having a January 6 Commission to look into exactly what occurred is a slap in the faces of all the officers who did their jobs that day.” Reportedly, many of the officers of the Capitol Police Department feel as though Republicans regard them as their servants.

McConnell claims a commission, evenly split between Democratic and Republican appointees, will be “openly partisan.” What’s non-partisan is that some Republicans will vote for it with Democrats…and what’s partisan is that only Republicans will be voting against it. Who would have guessed years ago that supporting terrorists would be a partisan thing for Republicans to do.

The Homeland Security Committee was created from the 9/11 commission’s recommendations. It was created to protect this nation from terrorists. Now, that committee is being ignored so Republicans can protect terrorists.

Gladys Sicknick may have asked the question rhetorically, but I’m not.

How can they not be doing the right thing?

Multitasking


Cjones04062021

After Donald Trump sent right-wing racist terrorists to attack the United States Capitol, killing one police officer, with two committing suicide days after, and over 100 injured from the Capitol Police force, with one losing an eye and another losing several fingers, conservatives were baffled that liberals were upset over an attack on police. I mean, aren’t liberals against cops?

No. Liberals are not against cops and we are not against having police. Sure, there’s a fringe element that wants to do away with all police and the slogan “defund the police” is a major distraction, but most liberals want police. The thing is, we want honest cops. We want a system that treats everyone equally. We want a system that doesn’t single out unarmed black Americans for punishment and unfair treatment. We don’t want cops killing unarmed black people over stuff like selling loose cigarettes, passing a counterfeit $20, or driving while black. We don’t want cops busting into the wrong house and killing the black occupants. We don’t want cops killing a man because they thought his cell phone was a gun. We don’t want cops killing a child for playing with a toy gun. It’s insane to think that people who don’t support racist cops are against cops.

Think of it like pizza. Just because I don’t want pineapple on my pizza doesn’t mean I’m against all pizza. Yes, I just equated pineapple pizza to racist cops. They both fuck up good things.

What’s insane is one day supporting racist cops and the next day, supporting the white nationalist MAGA terrorists who kills cops. But unlike conservatives, I am not baffled by this hypocrisy because I know it’s not really cops conservatives love. They love the racism. They love the Trump cult.

If Donald Trump sent Proud Boys, Oath Keepers, and other assorted racist MAGA terrorist goons to kill Jesus on Easter, Trump supporters would defend that. In the racist MAGA goons defense, he was a zombie.

Republicans are clinging to a racist system that’s denying black Americans the right to vote and supporting two separate justice systems, one for blacks and the other for whites.

You can be upset over the killing of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Eric Garner, Michael Brown, and Tamir Rice while also being upset over the killings of Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick and Officer Billy Evans.

Officer Sicknick was killed by Trump terrorists during their insurrection at the Capitol. Officer Evans was killed Friday by a man driving his car into Capitol Police at the Capitol, and then sprang from his car wielding a knife.

Trump supporters are simple-minded beasts. For them, everything is as simplistic as black and white (no pun intended). Fox News and Donald Trump only have to point toward the direction for the cult to go, and they go with no questions being asked.

We on the left understand life and humans are a bit more complex. You can hate pineapple on pizza while not hating pineapple. You can hate a racist like Papa John selling his racist pineapple pizza while not hating pizza. Life is complex.

Don’t be afraid to speak out for and against cops. Don’t be afraid to speak up against a racist system in our nation’s police forces. If you’re not a Trump supporter, you can multitask.

Creative note: I have a friend named Brian Evans, so I had to be very careful that I didn’t let my mind get sloppy and label one of the stones with his name. Also, big shout-out to my copy editor Hilary today who Googled and proofed each of these names while standing in line to get vaccinated at Gillette Stadium. My proof ladies really do rock.

On another creative note, I originally had “multitask” lettered in one line, but it really looked weird to me because “tit” is in the word. Look at it. “Multitask.” Maybe it was just my eyes, but it was glaring out to me. So, I moved it into two lines as an excuse to hyphenate it. Now that’s an obscure creative note. If I was going to sneak “tit” into a cartoon, I’d do it with something like “titmouse.” I’m like Homer Simpson and I can’t hear that word without giggling.
