Donald Trump For President

Trump’s Real Hair

Donald Trump has a problem. He’s a liar. He’s the worst kind of liar too. He’s not smart or creative enough to create his own lies, he has to hitch a ride on others’ lies. Remember his entire birther nonsense investigation? He was going to get to the truth of that. He’s going to let us know the truth. Instead he started a presidential campaign and doesn’t want to talk about it anymore.

Trump says he saw “thousands and thousands” of Muslims on 9/11 in Jersey City celebrating the buildings falling down. He even went so far to say they they had tail gate parties. That’s some pretty easy stuff to look up. If Trump had merely said that he saw a bunch of people in New Jersey being jerks then nobody would have looked into it. Trump is richer than most people, but still, most people can afford a television and nobody else in the country remembers seeing what Sir. Hair claims he saw.

I always say your run of the mill conservative has a problem with comprehension. Now I think the GOP’s top candidate has a problem with it. He used a Washington Post article that talked about an alleged story of Muslims in New Jersey celebrating 9/11. Trump doesn’t comprehend the word “alleged.” How does that hurt him in the polls? Not at all. His supporters are Republicans.

But really? Tail gate parties? You have to plan a tail gate party. You have to call your friends. Look at the schedule. Buy some brats (if you are a Muslim or Jewish, veggie brats). Assign someone else to make the salad. Make sure the grill is ready and you have charcoal. Hope your favorite football jersey is clean. You just don’t go rushing into tail gate mode because a plane flew into a building. Tail gate parties don’t take people by surprise. You’re not out there in a Jersey parking lot saying “hey, building number 2 just fell down Oh, do you want mustard on that?”

Donald Trump also retweeted that 81% of whites are killed by African Americans. Of course that’s FAR from being true. The tweet even came from a Neo-Nazi source. Go figure. Nazis are just bold enough to say what Republicans actually want to say. But hey, if you can’t trust Nazis then who can you trust?

He also said that a Black Lives Matter protester was “asking for it” after being beaten at one of his rallies.

And for what it’s worth, Trump just got David Duke’s endorsement.

The point I’m making is that Trump is a racist. Why should there be any doubt? Of course, making that point won’t deter Trump supporters. His supporters are racists. If you support Donald Trump, you’re either a racist or a delusional dumbass. I would just put my money on you being a right wing racist dumbass. Yeah, I said it.

There’s talk that the eventual Democratic nominee might win 4o states. I can’t imagine why.

Sitting At The Adults’ Table

It wasn’t hard finding a lie for each of these candidates. The hard part was deciding which lies to use.

It is funny that the more ridiculous the candidate, the higher he or she polls. Though I must say I’m going to miss Carly and Dr. Ben after they’re done crashing.

That’s what happens after too much turkey.

Goose Stepping To A Door Near You

People always play the Nazi or Hitler card when arguing politics. It goes for conservatives and liberals alike. It’s one of those “oh no he didn’t.” It gets tiresome and it usually gets you ignored pretty quick. Rightly so.

The most recent tiresome example is the comparison of Democratic Socialists to National Socialists. The Nazis were National Socialists and if you know anything about history, there wasn’t anything Democratic about the Nazis. The word “Democrat” isn’t the word to fixate on. I’m more concerned with nationalism. Anyone making the comparison between Democrats and Nazis is just a trolling moron. You might as well say vegetarians want to gas Jews, invade Russia and steal art because Hitler was a vegetarian. Hitler also loved dogs and opposed cruelty to animals. Go figure. Hitler also initiated the Volkswagen Beetle. Driving a tiny car that looks like a shoe and nearly impossible to lose your virginity in does not make you a Nazi.

By the way, Bernie Sanders, the Democratic Socialist, is Jewish.

Now Donald Trump and other conservatives are making an argument that Muslims should be entered into a national database. He also says we should shut down some mosques. It always starts with some. What’s up with Trump? Is he secretly a member of Hydra? If he wins the election I predict he’ll rip his face skin off after being sworn in revealing he’s the Red Skull.

Are these people serious? Are they unfamiliar with what happened in the past when we wanted to put people on a list identified by their religion? Maybe they are aware and they’re big fans of it. He is leading in Republican polls. How disgusting do these candidates have to get before Republican voters say “hey…I’m not sure about that plan.”?

Earlier this week in my community a public hearing was held for a group who wants to build a new mosque. At a town hall meeting in Spotsylvania, in the Fredericksburg, VA, region, two men yelled that all Muslims were terrorists. Police had to end the meeting early because of all the hatred. Never mind the fact the group wanting a new mosque currently has a mosque and has been here for decades and hasn’t been a problem. Oh my God, they’re gonna have a new building to continue doing what they’ve been doing without anything bad ever happening! Somebody stop it!

Republicans love to scream that President Obama and Hillary Clinton never use the term “Islamic terrorists” when discussing terrorism from Muslims. A lot of progressives don’t believe an entire religion and culture should be lumped in with the bad guys. The same people who criticize them for that never call out the people that say all Muslims are terrorists. Should we start calling white people who shoot up schools as Christian terrorists?

When we look back on history we see that at times the United States was on the wrong side when it came to treating refugees and at times its own citizens. We refused to let Jews come to the U.S., with many dying in the Holocaust as a result. We put our own citizens into camps based on their Japanese race. We ostracized and black listed people accused of being Communists. We were on the wrong side of history. It’s amazing that so many are ready to be on the wrong side again.

I’m not afraid of refugees. I grew up surrounded by them. You did too. One of the best men at my wedding was a refugee. Refugees will be vetted. Refugees will not be made up of single men between the ages of 18 and 40. They will mostly be widows, orphans and families. Most of the males will have professional careers. There’s also a very long process to be granted refugee status into the U.S. Congress, which never does anything, voted on a law trying to block refugees from entering the country. How ugly have we become?

Even those five Syrian guys stopped in Honduras with fake passports aren’t dangerous. They’re not refugees either. Four are college students and the other is a professor. There are no links between any of them and criminal elements. Conservatives shouldn’t be afraid of college students…unless they’re black and they want a protest. Also, all of the Paris attackers are from Europe.

Every cartoon I’ve drawn this week has been on issues that resulted from the Paris attacks. I like to vary it up but the national conversation this week has been all about Paris, Syria, and refugees. I feel like there’s a lot to stand up for. It’s very important we don’t go down that Nazi road. I’m not going to be silent on these matters. There are too many people out there who want to take this country backward. They vote. They’re breeding.

If you don’t think it’s a problem that the government goes after Muslims then ask yourself this. Who will they come after next?
