capitol attack

Foxitus


Cjones05142021

The white nationalist Trump terrorists who attacked our nation’s Capitol building to violate a democratically-held election and to re-install Donald Trump through a bloody coup attempt have all turned out to be sissified cry babies abdicating their own responsibility.

Donald Trump was responsible for the white nationalist terrorist attack on the Capitol. He’s responsible for the six deaths and injuries to over 100 Capitol Police officers. He spread lies for weeks that he won the election and it was stolen from him. He told his MAGA goons to be there on January 6. They were there on January 6. Before the attack, he told them to march to the Capitol and overturn the election. But he shares blame.

The people who attacked the capitol, Nazis, Proud Boys, One Percenters, Oath Keepers, Klansmen, and Fox News viewers were adults. Even the guy who brought his mommy with zip ties is an adult. They are responsible for their actions. Al Qaida and ISIS are a bunch of terrorizing, Jihad-seeking mother fuckers pledging death to America, but you don’t see those guys crying that bin Laden made them do it. The Qanon Shaman had his mommy go to court to plead with a judge that her son can’t eat jail food. That’s some serious white privilege.

Several of the attackers have since changed their minds and are now blaming Donald Trump, as if they couldn’t think for themselves. Did it take jail to detox from the MAGA cult?

But they’re not just blaming Donald Trump. They’re blaming Fox News. These terrorists are responsible for their own actions, but Fox News shares blame. They aired Donald Trump’s bullshit. They pounded it into their viewers’ brains. Trump’s minions who went on cable news to advance the Big Lie bullshit didn’t go on CNN or MSNBC. They went to Fox News, OANN, and Newsmax.

So far, 440 people have been arrested in connection to the MAGA riot. One guy’s defense is that he was suffering from an illness his lawyer calls “Foxitus” and “Foxmania.” The attorney for defendant Anthony Antonio (so stupid, he has the same name twice) said he had “Foxitus” from watching six months of Fox News nonstop, and started “believing what was being fed to him by Fox News and Donald Trump.”

This defense isn’t just an insanity defense. It’s a moron defense. It’s a defense of being too stupid to think for yourself. If it’s true you can’t think for yourself, the last person in the world you want doing your thinking is a person like Donald Trump. The second is a racist moron like Tucker Carlson. Sean Hannity is a very close third.

This defendant’s lawyer isn’t the only one arguing you shouldn’t believe Fox News. Fox News’ own lawyers made the same argument in a previous lawsuit. It was specifically about Tucker Carlson’s show, “Assholes Tonight.” And it might work. If you tell me you don’t watch anything except Fox News, I’ll buy the argument you’re a moron.

Let’s get a few things straight: The people who attacked the Capitol did so based on a lie. They were not Antifa. They were not Black Lives Matter. They were Trump followers. They were not protesters. They were terrorists. Anyone who attacks a government is a terrorist. Anyone who tries to change the leader of a government through violent means is a terrorist. They’re not just demonstrators whose passion got the better of them. They’re terrorists. Even Mr. Zip Tie’s mom is a terrorist.

At least 440 people have been arrested in connection with the terrorist attack. There needs to be at least one more.

Osama bin Laden sent terrorists to attack the Capitol building and failed. Donald Trump send terrorists to attack the Capitol building, and while he didn’t succeed in overturning an election and staying in power through a bloody coup attempt, he succeeded in attacking the Capitol.

Inside that very same building Donald Trump’s terrorists attacked are Republicans who are still worshipping the terrorist leader who ordered the attack.

The rich sweet irony here is that MAGA goons love to accuse liberals of being sheep, yet here they are claiming they’re not supposed to be held responsible because they’re incapable of thinking for themselves. But they are responsible and like Donald Trump, Fox News, and every representative who enabled the white nationalist terrorist attack (like Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley Ron Johnson, et al.), they’re all a national security threat.

These people who can’t think for themselves shouldn’t be allowed to choose their own TV shows. Turn off Fox News before you hurt someone…or hurt yourself. Is Hee-Haw still on?

Creative note: I woke up close to 6:00 AM planning to do something with Liz Cheney, Kevin McCarthy, and the bear being used in the California recall…but that went nowhere. Then this came to me.

Fresh Terrorists


Cjones04182021

We don’t just need police reform in this nation. We need justice reform.

Last weekend, Saturday Night Live did a skit of a morning news show where the white hosts were certain Derek Chauvin would be convicted while the black hosts were like, “eh…we’re not so sure.” I’ll be honest, I will not be shocked if Chauvin walks. Sure, his defense has been ridiculous, but have you met white America? The jury is mostly white and they only need to convince one juror there’s doubt of Chauvin’s guilt…not even that he is innocent. They only need one juror to refuse to convict. Let me remind you, they’re in white Minnesota.

Last June, the National Guard used tear gas to clear protesters away from the White House for no reason other than a photo-op for Donald Trump. The attack from the government came before curfew in broad daylight. The protesters were peaceful. Later, additional fences and barriers were placed around the White House. The protesters were protesting against police violence on black Americans.

Before the attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6, the Capitol Police were told not to use their most aggressive tactics or weapons against the expected “protesters.” Those protesters were terrorists. They were white terrorists. Now, do you honestly believe they would have been told to hold back if they were expecting black protesters? After the white terrorists broke into the Capitol, one was killed by the Capitol Police. If they were black, how many do you think would have died?

MAGAts are still defending the terrorists and they want the cop prosecuted who shot her. Do you think they’d be making the same demands if the terrorist was black and a part of “antifa?”

Daunte Wright was killed by police in Minnesota last Sunday. They police say it was an “accidental” shooting because the cop, a 26-year veteran, mistakenly used her Glock pistol instead of her taser. Police later said they pulled him over for an expired tag, but moments before they killed him, Wright called his mother and said he had been pulled over because his rearview air freshener was obstructing his view. How often do white people get pulled over for air fresheners?

Do you believe Army Lt. Caron Nazario would have been assaulted by police in Virginia if he was white? Do you think they would have approached his vehicle with guns drawn if he was white? Do you think they would have at least apologized by now if he was white? The chief of the Windsor Police Department says the department doesn’t owe Nazario an apology and even though they’ve fired one of the cops, wishes Nazario “would have complied a whole lot earlier.” Somehow, it’s still the black guy’s fault for being pulled over and pepper sprayed despite not breaking any laws. In Windsor, they haven’t fired enough cops yet.

The National Guard tear gassed a black crowd in Washington, D.C. The Capitol Police were told not to be aggressive with a white crowd. The Chauvin defense has witnesses saying he wasn’t aggressive enough while killing George Floyd. The Windsor Police will not apologize for how aggressive they were to Lt. Nazario.

The best evidence we need police reform is America’s police. No more racist cops. No more system of systemic racism.

Conspiracy Tiger


The attack on the United States Capitol building was instigated by months of a Big Lie that Donald Trump won the election and it was stolen from him. It was largely built around right-wing terrorists who coordinated with each other how to seize the Capitol. Before the event, Donald Trump called these supporters to be in Washington, D.C. on January 6. Senators Josh Hawley, Ron Johnson, Ted Cruz, and several others helped push the Big Lie. The day of the attack, when Congress was certifying the election which is a task mandated by the United States Constitution, Josh Hawley gave the terrorists a big wave of his fist which was either a show of support or to show he wanted to whack them off. Either way, he wanted to pleasure terrorists.

Ted Cruz, along with Hawley, did all they could to slow down the certification process, using the Big Lie in doing so. Now that they told that Big Lie, they’re on to new ones…like blame Democrats for the terrorist attack.

Yesterday, in a Senate and House joint hearing on the insurrection on our government, election, and Constitution, Hawley, Johnson, and Cruz all pretended they were responsible legislators who are to be taken seriously. They are not to be taken seriously. They are ridiculous jokes that are not funny.

Testifying were former US Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund, former House sergeant-at-arms Paul Irving, former Senate sergeant-at-arms Michael C. Stenger, who all resigned after the attack, and Michael Contee, the acting chief of local police in Washington, D.C.

The first question was: Why didn’t you see this coming? The entire public knew it was coming. I knew enough to draw a cartoon before the attack of Josh Hawley as a terrorist. Donald Trump said it was coming. The media knew it was coming. So, why didn’t our intelligence agencies know it was coming? And let’s debunk this lie now: Neither Nancy Pelosi nor Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser turned down protection.

During the attack, why was there a delay in a response from the National Guard? We still don’t have an answer to this. It was ridiculous that the response was so slow, but we have one fact. Donald Trump didn’t rush to get the National Guard on the scene. He was too busy calling senators and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy planning how to stop the certification of the election. Another fact: This was a coup attempt. We did NOT have a peaceful transfer of power between administrations. Donald Trump still has not conceded he lost despite the fact…let me clear my throat…HE FUCKING LOST!!!

“Would you agree that this attack involved White supremacists and extremist groups?” That’s the question asked by Senator Amy Klobuchar. All four witnesses said, “Yes.” Senator Ron Johnson tried to downplay the white supremacist angle. Why, why, why the fuck why is anyone who is not a racist trying to protect white supremacists? Ron Johnson didn’t just try to protect white supremacists, he used conspiracy theories during a Congressional hearing. He claimed the Trump supporters were in a “festive” atmosphere and that there were too many of them who were fat, bloated, handicapped, old, decrepit, and just too out of shape to be involved in a terrorist attack. Plus, they’re all patriots who love Trump and their country. The attack was by people disguised as Trump supporters. In fact, the fake Trump supporters planned the entire thing. Why didn’t Ron Johnson use the “they’re too stupid to plan this” defense? That has a bit of logic to it.

Monday, Fox News’ host and Pinocchio understudy Tucker Carlson claimed on his show that white supremacists had nothing to do with the attack. I guess they were all home picking roses or something. Maybe they were praying and building churches. Tucker Carlson is a liar and he’s lying to protect racists. Why, Tucker, why? Why must Tucker be a fucker?

Ron Johnson even claimed Trump supporters would never attack the police, despite there being videos of Trump supporters attacking the police and the inconvenient fact that Trump supporters killed a few cops. Also, a cop lost an eye, another lost fingers, and the Trump supporters pooped and pee-pee’d in the halls of Congress. This is true. Trump supporters are NOT good people. Fight me.

Josh Hawley, the guy who might want to stroke off white nationalist terrorists, said that Speaker Pelosi’s choice to investigate the matter (not him masturbating terrorists, but the entire attack), Retired Lt. Gen. Russel Honoré, shouldn’t be involved in the investigation for asking if some Capitol Police officers were complicit in the attack. Hawley said, “This person has no business leading any security review related to events of January 6.” Really? Hawley has no business investigating the attack, sitting on a hearing, or even being a United States Senator. Aren’t there some white supremacist terrorists back in Missouri who need a reach-around?

Hawley, who helped an insurrection and was the first Senator to become a coup’s cheerleader, said that Honoré’s comments were “disrespectful” and “really quite shocking”.

There are 2,000 officers in the Capitol Police and most fought the terrorists, but there were a few who opened the doors and took selfies with them, which is almost as bad as Representative Lauren Boebert tweeting out leaders’ locations during the attack and a Senator wanting to jack off insurrectionists.

During the opening statements of the hearing, Ted Cruz was busy scrolling through his phone, probably searching through CancunCruz hashtags. Sorry, Ted. That shit has a longer shelf life than #BernieMittens, you treasonous constituent-abandoning poodle-neglecting sack of shit.

Ted Cruz pretending he cares about white supremacists trying to overthrow our government and disenfranchise our presidential election is about as believable as Ted Cruz being concerned about Texans, or his poodle, freezing while he was taking his daughters to Cancun. By the way, what is there for children to do in Cancun? For the record, I’m against doing body shots with nine-year-olds.

Ted Cruz was all, “Oh it was terrible…how can we make sure it never happens again?” Answer: Get rid of Senators who help incite terrorists. At this point, even Cruz’s poodle wants a new daddy.

Ted Cruz, Ron Johnson, and Josh Hawley should be stripped of their committee assignments just like House Qnut Marjorie Taylor Greene. They could all use that time to fundraise for their racist PACs…or go to Cancun. Members of Congress have no business sitting on a committee asking about terrorists attacks they enabled. They should be the ones answering questions. Missouri and Texas, I’m not so sure about, but Wisconsin, I know you can do better and you get your shot next year.

As for Tiger Woods, I was really sorry to hear about his car wreck yesterday and I was worried about him. But it sounds like we have good news this morning. Tiger, stop driving fast and stop palling around with Donald Trump. Tiger allowed Donald Trump to use him for a photo-op when Trump awarded him the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Tiger, when it comes to Trump medals, you’re in the same company as Rush Limbaugh. Not good. Karma is mean. Don’t accept medals from people who incite white supremacist terrorist attacks.

Tiger, blink twice if you’re OK. Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley, Ron Johnson, blink if you’re a terrorist.

Big Tech Censorship


cjones01232021

When conservatives complain about “big tech censorship,” which is their latest buzz phrase, they don’t really care. They care about censorship about as much as they really care about “election integrity.” They don’t.

My former step-sister in Illinois posted a video of someone I don’t know moaning about “big tech censorship” of conservatives and how it was so unfair. The video was from the TikTok platform. I found that very ironic since Donald Trump actually tried to ban TikTok in this country.

Donald Trump tried to ban TikTok because it was used to snatch up tickets to his Tulsa rally, thus embarrassing him when nobody showed up (except Herman Cain) after his campaign boasted about the millions who would be there (seriously, they set up giant screens outside so all the people who couldn’t get inside the venue could still hear Trump’s rambling rhetoric…and nobody was out there). It was so bad, he fired his campaign manager. But I don’t recall a huge conservative backlash of Trump stripping away people’s freedom of speech. I don’t recall any conservative using the word “censorship.”

Donald Trump blocked people on Twitter who were mean to him. Since his account was considered a “public service,” you know, because he was president (sic), courts ruled he couldn’t block anyone. Trump’s tweets were considered official record. Every American had the right to see his tweets and understand just what an unhinged lunatic and national security threat we had occupying the Oval Office. But again, his supporters didn’t jump on him for blocking people. Conservatives never took issue with Trump’s Twitter activity, even when he retweeted Nazis. He retweeted a LOT of Nazis. And now, Republicans are really upset over a Twitter account being removed that retweeted Nazis. Fucking Nazis, people!

Now that Twitter and Facebook have removed Donald Trump from their platforms, and thousands of Trump supporters, they’re being accused of censorship and discriminating against conservative speech. Republicans are up in arms. South Dakota, or North Dakota, one of the Dakotas is trying to make it legal to sue “big tech” if they censor you. I think to take advantage of this, every Trump supporter in the United States should move to whichever Dakota it is that’s doing that. One of my conservative cartooning colleagues went on Twitter and tweeted multiple times challenging Twitter to remove his account. At this time, Twitter still hasn’t removed his account. Do you know why? Because they don’t care. Also, he should move to one of the Dakotas.

Here’s the thing, MAGAts…and please pay attention: Social media is NOT discriminating against you. Big tech is NOT out to get you. Here’s a helpful hint: If you’re complaining on Twitter or Facebook about their censorship and they haven’t removed your posts complaining about their censorship, then you’re probably not being censored.

Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube are not trying to silence conservative voices. What these platforms are doing, including Amazon removing Parler from its servers, is removing terrorists and people who support terrorists. They’re removing the ability for terrorist fucks to coordinate, plan, and incite other terrorist fucks. Now, it just so happens that all these terrorists are conservatives and Trump supporters.

If you don’t want your social media account removed, stop being a terrorist fuck. It’s pretty simple.

No private company owes you a platform to spread lies, conspiracy theories, or to coordinate terrorist attacks. They don’t owe you a platform to recruit new members for your hate group.

Do you remember when ISIS, al-Qaida, and other terrorist organizations were removed from social media platforms and the servers that hosted them? I do. These guys were really good at using social media and the internet to organize and recruit. Eventually, “big tech” started removing them after there were calls for them to do so. Do you remember who yelled for Twitter to remove ISIS supporters? A lot of people making those demands were…wait for it…Republicans.

ISIS was so good at using social media to recruit, they were recruiting Americans. They were also recruiting people from the United Kingdom and Europe (I separate the two because I know people in the UK who HATE being included with Europe. It’s kinda like us with Florida and Alabama). Do you know who else has been good at using the internet to recruit terrorists? Trump supporters.

The Southern Poverty Law Center says hate groups increased their membership by 55% during the Trump era. Actually, they reported that in 2018, so it’s probably a lot higher now. And Donald Trump encouraged the hate groups. After the tiki-torch Nazis marched in Charlottesville and killed Heather Heyer, Donald Trump said there were good people among those chanting “Jews will not replace us” and “blood and soil.” During a debate with Joe Biden, when asked to denounce the hate group Proud Boys, instead of denouncing them, he told them to “stand by.” Stand by for what? We found out.

Donald Trump called for his hate groups to go to Washington, D.C. on January 6. He told them it would “wild.” He and his supporters claim he didn’t want them to be violent, so that means he only wanted a bloodless coup. Donald Trump told his angry crowd of white nationalists to “march” on the Capitol. For months, he told them a big lie about the election being stolen. A lie he’s still telling. He told them to fight and they couldn’t be weak. He said if they didn’t fight, they’d lose their country. They attacked the Capitol. They vandalized the place. They stole items. They killed a cop. The beat up other cops. They brought nooses and chanted, “Hang Mike Pence.” They screamed to find Nancy Pelosi and vandalized her office. They brought pipe bombs and Molotov cocktails. They shit in the hallways.

Who does that? Terrorists do that. Terrorists bring pipe bombs and shit on the floor. “Make American great again” apparently means stop using toilets and shit on floors. How about, “Make Republicans house broken again?”

A lot of conservatives are saying they didn’t want the violence, just the insurrection. They wanted the coup. They wanted to install a fascist dictator who had lost an election. But they didn’t mean to hurt anybody. While screaming about defending the Constitution, they tried to stop Congress from doing a Constitutional duty. These were terrorists. If they weren’t, then why did Trump supporters initially try to blame Antifa?

And after storming the Capitol, ransacking the place, committing murder, and that disgusting stuff you did in the hallways, you have the gall to scream about being censored.

Nobody is censoring you. Stop yelling this is like the George Orwell novel “1984.” I don’t remember you idiots mentioning “1984” or using the term “Orwellian” when Donald Trump called for abolishing the First Amendment, that protects free speech, when he said the government to be able to go after social media platforms and publications for writing stuff he didn’t like. People who haven’t read “1984” should stop comparing things to it. Go read “1984,” and after that, read “Animal Farm,” and the First Amendment. The good news is, they’re all very easy reads.

Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube are all private platforms. The government doesn’t own them. They do not owe you a damn thing. A private company shutting you down is not censorship. You can still speak…just not there. And I seem to remember Trump supporters being all about freedom for private businesses when it comes to birth control insurance and gay wedding cakes.

Trump supporters are outraged that Donald Trump is now silenced by Twitter, despite his still having the bully pulpit. Why, what ever did presidents do previously to speak to Americans? FDR conducted fireside chats. Some presidents, I have been told, have used this new device thing called “television.” Did I pronounce that correctly? All the kids are talking about it. Look into it.

If the biggest takeaway you have from the terrorist attack on the Capitol is that “big tech” is being mean to terrorists, go screw yourself. Stop defending terrorists…like Donald Trump.

If your accounts on social media are being deleted by “big tech,” it’s probably not because you’re a conservative. It’s probably because you’re supporting terrorists. Maybe, it’s because you are a terrorist.
