Glenn Youngkin

Burning For Youngkin


Cjones10242021

I just told a friend who commented on this that the cartoon started without mentioning Virginia GOP gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin. I thought it would have more appeal to all my clients if it could encompass their area. I mean, I don’t have any clients in Virginia which I think is kinda messed up. But then I thought how important it is to call out Glenn Youngkin and make sure this lying vile Trumper is defeated in my state. It’s important to save Virginia.

As anti-vaxxing, anti-mandates, and racist parents demand school boards across the nation stop teaching what they’re not teaching, Critical Race Theory, and threatening teachers and school board members, Republicans are accusing the Biden administration of attacking parents.

It’s funny that when a Republican gets shouted at, or denied service at a restaurant, or someone follows Kyrsten Sinema into a public bathroom to tell her how disappointed with what she’s doing (no, not if she washes her hands after, but obstructing Biden’s agenda without any reason), and it’s an attack. But a conservative parent tells a school board member “I know where you live” and “you better not leave your home alone,” and it’s free speech.

Glenn Youngkin, while presenting himself as a moderate Republican who doesn’t buy into the election lie but loves Trump’s endorsement, has now fully embraced the Republican habit of spreading bullshit.

During an interview with Fox News Radio on October 6, Young claimed his opponent, former governor Terry McAuliffe, had called President Biden to sic the FBI on parents who attend schoolboard meetings. Youngkin lied and said, “Now that parents have stood up and said ‘Terry, we’re rejecting this whole philosophy,’ he goes and gets his friend Joe Biden to dispatch the Department of Justice and the FBI to try to silence parents in Virginia who are standing up for their children.”

This is bullshit. That has never happened. Youngkin is making it up.

Youngkin went on to set his pants on fire with, “If you don’t agree with his big government policy to put government and politicians and bureaucrats between you and your children, if you don’t agree, he’s going to get his friends to sic the F.B.I. on you.”

He also did it the day before on a radio station in Lynchburg when he said, “Now we see Joe Biden and Terry McAuliffe attempting to silence parents completely by intimidating them by force.”

Now he has a commercial claiming Terry McAuliffe is sending the FBI after parents for sticking up for their children.

As Sarah Marshall said in the marvelous film, “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” “Bullshit, bullshit, bullshit, bullshit.”

Youngkin isn’t just lying. He’s fear-mongering. Next, he’s going to say Terry McAuliffe will come to your house, kick your dog, teach black history to your children (what’s wrong with that?), eat all your Halloween candy except the candy corn, and clog your toilet. I could have had a career writing for Republicans.

Parents are not bad people. Most of us are parents. But parents screaming about Critical Race Theory are bad people and racist. Parents screaming at school board members against vaccine and face-mask mandates are bad people and bad parents. Parents threatening school board members are all of the above.

And allowing parents to dictate the curriculum, where they ban certain courses, is the same as book burning. Do you want your children educated by the demands of an angry mob? That’s what Glenn Youngkin is promising.

These parents Youngkin and Republicans are defending are less responsible and caring for their children and their education and more like the White Citizens Council from 1960s Mississippi. Youngkin wants to take money from public schools and give it to private schools, which is bringing back segregation. Fun fact: Most private schools were created in the 1960s so white parents could pull their kids out of public schools saving them from sitting next to a black kid.

Here’s a fun exercise: Go on the internet (where you are now) and look up your local private school and see the date it was established. I’m sure it being in the 60s is just a big honking coincidence.

Youngkin doesn’t want to talk about facts, like how he’s going to fire educators and ban abortion, and is more interested in lies, like the FBI is going to arrest you for giving your kid extra dessert. You can’t have any pudding unless you eat your meat!

The real threat here is Glenn Youngkin to Virginia. This lying gaslighting abortion-banning segregationist Trump goon wants to destroy our state by giving it to his fellow millionaires to rape and pillage. How’s that for fear-mongering? Except my fears about Youngkin can come true if he’s elected.

And if Youngkin is elected, it can be a bellwether for the rest of the nation during the 2022 midterms. We need to stop the GOP invasion cold in Virginia before it spreads to the rest of the nation. Draw the line in Virginia by defeating Youngkin.

Let’s give Youngkin an education by teaching him his hate, fearmongering and lies won’t work in Virginia.

Flags Of My Terrorists


Spare10182021

This is the first cartoon I drew this morning.

I went to bed Thursday night with this idea and thinking about how I was going to pull it off. I woke up early with it still in my head and I settled on this layout. I was finishing it around 10:00 AM when I got the other idea. I sketched out the second idea twice, trying to decide if I should stick with the cartoon I had just finished or go with the new one, which would mean starting over and delivering later to my clients. I decided to go with the new one. This one was put on the shelf.

A couple hours later, Laura, one of my proofers, said she liked the one you see here better and I should go ahead and send out both. I don’t like doing that but I still liked this cartoon. I don’t like hitting the same subject twice in a row, and especially twice in one day. There are too many issues out there to be banging on the same one. I also feel like the cartoons kinda step on each other when you do them so close together. But, I broke my rule this one. I actually had some anxiety over it.

This one has done better on Facebook while the other is doing better with my clients. Maybe that’s another experiment to learn from. But, news outlets are very different from social media. I’ve discovered the more reactionary stuff does better on social media and the less-triggering does better with news outlets. For example: The cartoon that was featured in The Washington Post this week only got about 30 shares on Facebook.

So, which of the two do you like better? Don’t let the fact TikTok removed the video for this one hate speech influence your judgement.

The Youngkin Pledge


Cjones10182021

The Republican candidate for Virginia’s governorship said it was “weird and wrong” for a bunch of his supporters to pledge allegiance with a flag supposedly from the January 6 white nationalist terrorist attack on our capitol building. Well, Glenn, they’re your people. They’re your supporters. They just also happen to support insurrection, overthrowing an election, installing a fascist dictator, white nationalism, terrorism, and killing cops. You wonder if this was one of the flags that was on a pole used to beat cops.

During a rally for Youngkin on Wednesday, which Youngkin said, “I wasn’t involved,” a bunch of his supporters pledged allegiance to a flag they claimed was at the January 6 insurrection to overthrow an election and install Donald Trump as a fascist dictator. Youngkin said, “we shouldn’t pledge allegiance to that flag. And oh by the way, I’ve been so clear, there is no place for violence — none, none — in America today.” Yeah, Glenn, except you’re a Republican.

The Republican Party is more of a cult now than an actual political party. Why, if they can’t win an election, they’ll try to overthrow the government. Today, they complain the election was corrupt and full of malfeasance, so the answer to that is to create more malfeasance by restricting voting by color.

The Republican Party has made Donald Trump a cult leader. And while Youngkin says he’s not into the violence or the election lie of the GOP, he’s more than happy to have the endorsement of the guy who instigated a white nationalist terrorist attack. The rally featuring the flag carried by terrorist also featured Steve Bannon, who the House wants to answer questions about the terrorist attack. This rally featured Amanda Chase, who was at the insurrection cheering it on. This rally featured a phone call from Donald Trump himself,

While accepting the endorsement of racist white nationalist Trump, Youngkin doesn’t want to be seen with the guy. But during the call to Youngkin’s rally, Trump said he was open to campaign for Youngkin. I hope he does.

Youngkin says he doesn’t endorse the violence of the January 6, but he sure does attract people who do. It’s like a candidate saying he’s not a racist while Nazis are voting for him.

Creative note: I drew a cartoon this morning, then put it aside when I got this idea. I went back and forth over which one I should go with and finally settled for this one. That meant I had to start over at 10:00 A.M. But, I’m going to show you the other one later today (it’s already on social media). You can tell me which you like better.

Youngkin Education


Cjones10092021

During the final debate between Democratic candidate and former governor Terry McAuliffe and Republican candidate, Trump cultists, businessman, and job outsourcer, Glenn Youngkin, McAuliffe said he doesn’t believe “parents should be telling schools what they should teach.” Since then, that’s all Youngkin has been talking about.

Youngkin turned the footage into a digital ad, then announced spending $1 million on a commercial airing statewide proclaiming “Terry went on the attack against parents.” His campaign created a group called “Teachers for Youngkin” which sent out flyers talking about how McAuliffe is attacking parents. Tonight, Youngkin is going to stage a rally in Northern Virginia titled “Parents Matter.”

How dare a politician say something so callous as parents shouldn’t be telling teachers what to teach. It’s an outrage this big government liberal doesn’t want parents setting the curriculum. Why, what McAuliffe said…makes total and complete sense.

The people Youngkin is appealing to are the same people who want God in public education. They want school prayer. They don’t want vaccination or mask mandates in schools. They already believe teachers are indoctrinating students to be liberal, spit on the flag, and pledge allegiance to teacher unions. These are the same people screaming to remove Critical Race Theory from all public schools even though it’s not being taught in any public schools. These are the same people who believe Donald Trump won an election, January 6 was a protest, Ashley Babbitt just so happened to be strolling by innocently inside the Capitol when a police officer shot her, and that vaccines contain microchips.

Do you really want these people setting the agenda in public education? I bet Glenn Youngkin doesn’t either and is just using the issue as red meat to the Trump base he’s feeding. By going to Northern Virginia, Youngkin is hoping people who normally vote blue aren’t paying attention to the details…or to what he’s actually saying.

Have you seen the videos of parents screaming at school boards about vaccines and face masks? Have you seen the videos of them screaming at school board members and teachers in parking lots? These are not the people I want telling teachers how to teach. I would not trust these people to tell me how to microwave a Hot Pocket. “You have to be sure you stick the knives in the microwave.”

If a football coach can ignore a parent when they try to tell him how to run an offense or they should let their kid play quarterback, then teachers shouldn’t have to listen to dumbass parents. If a parent tells a teacher how we need more God in public school, I believe that teacher can legally give that parent a swirlie.

I’m a parent. Does that mean I can tell teachers to teach black lives matter?

Here’s the thing, kids: Parents do get a say in how their children are educated. It’s the same way they elect presidents, mayors, senators, representatives, etc. They get to vote on who sits on school boards. Voting is a voice. Go to school board and PTA meetings. Sure, be involved. But when you demand how your child is taught, you’re also demanding how my child is taught. But then again, you don’t understand that a virus can go from one child to another. How would you feel about a parent knowingly sending their kid to school with lice? Fun fact: Lice, like the coronavirus, don’t care if your kid’s parents are Democrats or Republicans.

Youngkin says he’s the guy for education and claims he wants to give teachers a pay increase. McAuliffe does too. But it’s Youngkin who wants to take money away from public schools and give it to private and charter schools. It’s Glenn Youngkin who wants to bring back segregation. Fun fact: Most private schools were created in the 1960s. Huh. I wonder why that is.

Glenn Youngkin proposed eliminating the state income tax, and then flipped his position. But did he really? If you really care about education, you should be concerned because eliminating the state income tax, which accounts for 72 percent of school funding, will force Virginia to lay off 43,000 teachers. Youngkin has a net worth of over $300 million which was earned by running an investment firm that gobbled up smaller companies and made them more profitable by laying people off and outsourcing jobs to Asia.

This year, CNBC ranked Virginia as the second-best in the nation for education. A high ranking in education makes Virginia extremely attractive for luring businesses from other states…and helps prevent businesses from leaving. A top-rate education system is great for economic development. Republicans need to go back to school to learn how that adds up because they haven’t connected two-plus-two on this issue yet. It’s like voting for Trump and not understanding why there’s an increase in Nazis and hate crimes.

They say the best way to destroy public education is to take away the state income tax. The second best way is to elect a Republican. Glenn Youngkin has the same ideas toward public education as Betsy DeVos, Trump’s Education Secretary who hates public education and believed we needed more guns in schools to save students from bear attacks. Virginia needs a Democratic governor to save schools from Republican attacks. Fun fact: Bears attack fewer Americans than Republican Nazis. Another fun fact: More students have died from mass shootings at schools than from bears.

Republicans hate public education. Don’t take it from. me Take it from Republicans.

Another fun fact: The least educated vote Republicans. As Donald Trump once said about voters, “I love the poorly educated.” He loves the poorly educated almost as he loves quarter pounders and Nazis. Glenn Youngkin will let the poorly educated tell teachers what to teach your child.

For the sake of your child, keep Virginia blue. Vote for Terry McAuliffe.

Trumpkin For Governor


Cjones10022021

Glenn Youngkin is a businessman running for governor of Virginia as a moderate and rational Republican, which doesn’t exist anymore. But the thing is, he didn’t just run as an extremist in the primary. He ran as a MAGA Kool-Aid-swilling Trump cultist. And he wasn’t even the the biggest Trumper among the GOP candidates. There were two others worse than him. One female candidate described herself as “Trump in heels” which will now become my new favorite nightmare.

Fortunately for Youngkin, Republican voters don’t select their nominee. The people who scream about election integrity don’t even have one. The party selects the nominee at a state convention and the party knew that nominating a full-on cultist that’s been dipped in orange Trumper batter like a fairground corndog wouldn’t sell in Virginia, which went for President Biden by ten points last year. Over the past decade, Virginia has gotten bluer and bluer. A Republican presidential candidate has not won Virginia since 2004.

Today, every statewide elected office is held by a Democrat, even the ones who wore black face or assaulted women (Republicans are still worse). The House of Delegates is now controlled by the Democratic Party. Much of this is thanks to Donald Trump. Historically, presidents are unpopular in their first year. By the time the Virginia race rolls around in the next year, voters go for the person in the opposite party. But that didn’t happen the year after Putin put Trump in the White House. In fact, Democratic votes increased. But, Virginia may not be entirely blue just yet. It’s a tight race separated by three points in the polls (for McAuliffe) and Youngkin has a chance. His chances depend on the memories of Virginia voters. He’s hoping they don’t have any.

Candidates often speak to the extreme of their party during the primaries and pivot to the middle during the general election. They hope independent and moderates didn’t listen to them during the primaries and hope the extremist don’t during the general campaign. Youngkin is hoping Virginia voters don’t know he spoke for the lunatic fundamentalist zealot cultists during the primary.

During the primary to choose which maniac the GOP would select to face off against former governor Terry McAuliffe, Youngkin promised to “protect the life of every Virginia child, born and unborn.” Now, he’s scrubbed all that shit from his website while his super PAC continues to shower anti-choice extremists with cash.

Youngkin was caught on a hot mic explaining to supporters he can’t champion an anti-choice platform as it won’t sell in Virginia. He’s hoping to trick moderates to win the election and then the next morning go all, “Bleah bleah bleah, you voted for Greg Abbot Lite. BWAHAHAHAHA!”

Youngkin is hoping moderate voters are what Trump believes people who died fighting for their country are, “suckers.”

He was asked if he would defund Planned Parenthood and “take it to the abortionists.” His answer was, “”I’m going to be really honest with you. The short answer is in this campaign, I can’t. When I’m governor and I have a majority in the House we can start going on offense. But as a campaign topic, sadly, that in fact won’t win my independent votes that I have to get.”

In another video, he said, “We’re going after those middle one million voters who are, sadly, gonna decide this — have decided elections for the last 10 to 12 years in Virginia, and they’ve moved a bit away from us. We’re going to get them. We just got back a whole bunch of data today, and we’re winning this group. This is the group that we have to go get.”

He’ll get them by tricking them. Don’t let him fool you.

If he’s going to lie to you about his position on abortion, what else is he lying about? Is he lying about gun control, the vaccine, the pandemic, who won the election? Yes, yes, yes, and yes.

Anti-abortion zealots aren’t worried about his hot-mic snafu or lack of campaigning on ending abortion. They listened to him during the GOP’s fake primary. “He’s not being squishy because we already have him on record saying this stuff,” Don Blake, president of the Virginia Christian Alliance, told The Washington Post.

He’s assured evangelical voters he would “oppose laws that allow women to seek abortions,” according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch. That means he’s going to oppose laws that are on the books now. Don’t mess up by voting for this guy and then wonder later why Virginia has a bunch of Texas Taliban-style laws the majority of the population opposes.

He now says he’s “pro-life,” but he’s not an extremist fundamentalist like the yee-haw fuckers in Texas. He says he’s for banning abortions after the 20th week of pregnancy, not the sixth. But, has anyone asked him if he’ll veto a bill that is a duplicate of Texas’ that bans abortion after six weeks and basically outlaws abortion? Would he veto or sign a bill that creates bounties on abortion providers? Will he restore Jefferson Davis’ name to state highways? Will he return Robet E. Lee’s statue to Richmond? Will he make Trump’s birthday a state holiday? Will you soon fly into Richmond at Ivanka International Airport? Will he rename Virginia Beach to Proud Boy Beach? Will the state motto go from “Virginia is for lovers” to “Virginia is for lovers but only for conception?” Or, “Virginia is for lovers, even rapists who impregnate you?” Since his campaign website doesn’t have a page explaining where he stands on the issues, someone needs to ask him these questions.

Don’t forget, Ted Cruz campaigned with Youngkin during the primary. Where is Ted Cruz during the general election. For most people, never is when they want to be seen with Cancun Cruz, but for Youngkin, he found a time and place.

During the primary, he would not say Biden won the election and kept talking about “election integrity,” which isn’t a real thing for Republicans but a phrase they love to say. After the primary, he needed to focus on the general election and stop staying crazy shit. When asked if Biden is president, he said, “Of course! He’s our president. He slept in the White House last night. He’s addressed a Joint Session of Congress. He’s signing executive orders that I wish he wasn’t signing. So, let’s look forward and just recognize that what we have to do is lead.”

Still, did you notice what he did not say? He still didn’t say Biden won the election. Hey, reporters. Don’t ask him who is the president. Don’t ask him who’s sleeping in the White House. Ask him if Biden won the election. Ask him if it was stolen from Trump. Ask him about George Soros, Hugo Chavez, illegal voters, and Italian satellites. Ask him, ask him, ask him. Ask him if he wants to be endorsed by Ted Cruz, Marjorie Taylor Green, and Matt Gaetz. Tie him to the conspiracy-spreading zealots.

Ask him about Donald Trump’s endorsement. Virginia, do you want a guy endorsed by Trump?

During last night’s debate, Youngkin came out against vaccine mandates for teachers and health officials. He’s against corporations mandating their employees taking the vaccine. When asked by moderator Chuck Todd whether vaccinations for measles, mumps and rubella should be voluntary, Youngkin said, “I think the data associated with those vaccines is something we should absolutely understand the difference between this vaccine.” That’s word salad, not an answer.

Chuck asked him for a real answer and Youngkin said, “Those vaccines can be mandatory. I do believe the covid vaccine is one everyone should get but we shouldn’t mandate it.” Did that make sense to you?

We do know this: States with Republican governors are doing far worse with the pandemic. They’re also the worst for economic development and have the highest poverty rates. Youngkin is promising to slash taxes, even the 2.5 percent on groceries. What he’s really promising isn’t a cut to your grocery bill, but tax cuts for billionaires like himself. Youngkin will destroy Virginia’s economy and make it a haven for the coronavirus, much like Texas and Florida have become. I don’t want Virginia to be like Texas and Florida in any sort of way. I even root for the Washington Football Team over the Cowboys and Buccaneers.

Last night’s debate was the second and the last before the election in October. There was one other scheduled but Youngkin refused to participate because Judy Woodruff, the moderator, had contributed $250 to the Clinton Foundation’s earthquake relief efforts in Haiti over a decade ago. He was worried that someone with empathy for other people couldn’t be impartial to a Republican. He was also worried she might ask questions during the debate. Maybe like Trump, he’s afraid of women, especially smart ones. So, he went with Chuck Todd.

Youngkin opposed Biden’s coronavirus relief package. He’s also against an increase in the minimum wage to $15 from the current $7.25 in Virginia. He opposes paid family and medical leave. He opposes the state’s Medicaid expansion. He’s argued for increasing gun rights. And finally, he will ban abortions. His mouth doesn’t say it, but his pocketbook does. He’s been doling out campaign contributions to anti-choice zealots in basically every race in Virginia. He’s trying to become governor with a right-wing fundamentalist anti-choice General Assembly. He’ll probably combat climate change by banning woke actions that anger God.

The Washington Post has endorsed McAuliffe. They write that Glenn Youngkin “has played footsie with the scurrilously antidemocratic Big Lie” that Trumpers claim gave Biden the presidency. The Post mentioned Youngkin would roll back gun-safety laws and abortion access, equivocated on same-sex marriage, and called Medicaid expansion, which provided health insurance for hundreds of thousands of Virginians, “sad.”

The Post also writes, “In the current campaign, for which voting starts Friday and culminates Nov. 2, Mr. McAuliffe has proposed a sweeping, detailed agenda — a sharp contrast with Mr. Youngkin, who for months had almost no policy proposals beyond a commission to tighten rules on nearly nonexistent election fraud.”

The Post points out, “The McAuliffe plan’s centerpiece is a $2 billion investment in education, which dovetails with his pro-business agenda; good schools attract good businesses.”

They also mention as governor, McAuliffe made 35 trips overseas to bring businesses and jobs to Virginia, which included luring Nestlé USA to Roslyn from California and CoStar Group to move from North Carolina to Richmond. Maybe if you live in California or North Carolina, you don’t want Terry McAuliffe to return to Virginia’s governor mansion. When McAuliffe left office, our unemployment rate was at 3.6 percent, below the national average.

McAuliffe also restored felon voting rights and criminalized gun possession by domestic abusers. Take note if you live in NoVa, McAuliffe negotiated a massive, privately financed expansion in traffic-clogged Northern Virginia’s highway capacity.

By comparison, Younkin’s only positions have been to destroy progress and create “election integrity” for non-existent voter fraud.

The Post sums up with: “It’s critical that Virginians recall that Mr. McAuliffe is a dynamic chief executive with a proven track record for advancing prosperity. Mr. Youngkin is an untested politician who would guide the state away from the moderation it has pursued, and profited from, for more than a decade. Electing him would be a grave error.” Donald Trump was an untested politician too.

Electing Youngkin would be a huge error. It would be a disaster. Trumplicans are always disasters.

Youngkin is a Trumpkin, but if you don’t want to vote for McAullife and since the will be getting hot in October, vote for a pumpkin. It’s kinda the same thing when you look at Trump.
