Lauren Boebert

Clubbing With Boebert


A gunman entered a Colorado Springs LGBTQ+ nightclub during a midnight drag show Saturday and murdered five people and injured over a dozen others. The suspect was arrested on suspicion of five counts of first-degree murder and five counts of bias-motivated or hate crimes. He was injured when police made the arrest because he was taken down by a retired Army Major and Bronze Star recipient and a drag performer, and they beat his ass with his own gun, an AR-15-type assault rifle. This makes drag queens better at stopping mass shootings than Uvalde and Texas police.

Colorado representative Lauren Boebert tweeted, “The news out of Colorado Springs is absolutely awful. This morning the victims & their families are in my prayers. This lawless violence needs to end and end quickly.” She didn’t mention it happened at an LGBTQ+ club or during a drag show. Why is that? Because over the past several years, Boebert has been sharing her homophobia with the public and attacking LGBTQ+ people.

She has been criticized by watchdog groups for perpetuating false narratives about LGBTQ people and spreading inflammatory rhetoric online to her millions of followers.
She’s sponsored anti-LGBTQ+ legislation.
She’s claimed trans people don’t exist.
She’s accused drag queens of being groomers.
When an anti-hate group ranked her Twitter account third in spreading lies about LGBTQ+ people being groomers, she vowed to step up her hate tweets to get a number-one ranking.
She’s tweeted that children should be taken to “church, not drag shows.”
She believes there should be a law making it illegal to decide your sexual preference before you’re 21, which means she’s a hypocrite or didn’t realize she was straight until she was 21.

If we ever do end this violence, as she demanded, it won’t end because of any help from her. She’s also a gun nut, consistently voting against measures to limit gun violence and mass shootings. One of her campaign commercials featured her smugly walking around the Capitol with a gun strapped to her hip. Until their landlord refused to renew their lease, Boebert and her husband, who likes to expose himself to teenage girls in bowling alleys, operated a gun-themed restaurant named Shooter’s Grill.

Boebert is a vile human being and one of the most disgusting in Congress with the likes of Matt Gaetz, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Louie Gohmert, Jim Jordan, and until he was defeated in a primary, Madison Cawthorn (who likes to dress in drag). She barely won reelection this month which is a damn shame.

Lauren Boebert is a stupid hateful homophobic Islamophobic racist so when she pretends to be sad over a shooting that targeted the same people she targets with hate tweets, she needs to be held accountable. Some people are calling her out and won’t let her get away with it.

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted at her, “You have played a major role in elevating anti-LGBT+ hate rhetoric and anti-trans lies while spending your time in Congress blocking even the most common sense gun safety laws.” AOC told her, “You don’t get to ‘thoughts and prayers’ your way out of this. Look inward and change.”

Boebert will not change. She’s a rancid human being appealing to a rancid base of MAGAts. Hate, intolerance, and stupidity are her bread and butter.

AOC isn’t alone in calling Boebert out. Mondaire Jones, one of the few openly gay members of Congress, tweeted at Boebert, saying, “Your record is absolutely awful. You use hateful rhetoric towards the LGBTQ+ community and helped block even modest efforts to end gun violence.”

Representative Jamal Bowman tweeted, “Your rhetoric and lack of legislative courage and humanity radicalized people to do the evil and unthinkable.” Truly. You don’t see gay people attacking square dances and Cracker Barrels with AR-15s and hammers.

Colorado state Rep. Brianna Titone, the first transgender person elected to the state legislature, replied to Boebert Sunday morning, writing, “There’s blood on your hands. Thanks for the ‘thoughts and prayers’ but that does nothing to offset the damage that you directly did to incite these kinds of attacks on the LGBTQ+ community. You spreading tropes and insults contributed to the hatred for us. Just resign.”

I second that. Just resign, Boebert. It’s not like you have ever sponsored a bill that got through a single committee, less enough, passed into law. Taxpayers are paying you a six-figure salary for literally nothing unless you count hate and support of insurrections something.

I wanted to see how a few other goons were reacting to the shooting, so I checked in on my favorite MAGAt cartoonist who I use as a barometer for the current hateful snowflakey white victimization talking point (read the comments). And he does have some outrage that has to do with the LGBTQ+ community. No, he’s not upset over the shooting at a drag show. He’s upset that the U.S. soccer team has incorporated the rainbow flag as part of its crest on their uniforms during the World Cup tournament (and claiming the logo has replaced the U.S. flag, which it hasn’t). But the drag show, he hasn’t mentioned that.

Correction: I originally wrote that Richard Fierro was a retired Marine, but he was actually a major in the Army. Oops. Thanks for sending the correction, Bob. The person who helped the Army vet take down the shooter was not a drag performer but a trans woman (as I was just told by an editor of one of my client newspapers. He also informed me vet beat the shooter with his own pistol, not his rifle. The original details I wrote were what I got this morning. Sorry.

Freaks Come Out In 2023


Not only will Republicans hold up President Biden’s agenda if they retake the House, but they’ll work to defund Social Security and Medicare, hold the government hostage by shutting down the government during the next debt-ceiling deadline, and work to give Donald Trump more tax cuts. Additionally, they’re going to conduct a bunch of bullshit investigations that they’re going to have to make a lot of shit up for. The entire GOP agenda is about inflicting revenge on the Democrats for trying to protect the nation from a corrupt “president” and his white nationalist terrorist goons.

So what kind of shit will Republicans investigate?

They’re going to investigate Hunter Biden and his laptop. If the GOP retakes the House, James Comer will likely be the chair of the House Oversight and Reform Committee and he’s promising to investigate the Bidens’ overseas business activities. Comer wants to get a hold of financial records from banks and the Treasury Department to prove that the president is compromised by his son’s business dealings, even though there is zero proof of any corruption from President Biden.

Comer said, “I think that’ll go a long way towards helping us be able to uncover some questions that the American people have about the ethics, and whether or not the Biden administration is truly compromised by Hunter’s shady business dealings.” What is corrupt is helping Donald Trump hide his business records and taxes all while he was bilking the U.S. government during his “presidency” while still making money from foreign governments, but I’m sure none of that compromised him. There’s also no interest from Republicans to find out why Saudi Arabia felt the need to give Jared Kushner $2 billion as soon as he left the White House.

Jim Jordan will likely chair the House Judiciary Committee and he plans to go after the Justice Department and FBI for raiding Mar-a-Lago. Jordan said, “The No. 1 thing is this weaponization of the DOJ against the American people.” Yeah, Donald Trump, a billionaire who shits in gold toilets, is NOT the American people. But how dare the FBI go after a billionaire for stealing classified documents. Maybe Jordan can conduct an investigation into why Trump wanted these documents in the basement of his country club, and why he lied about them for over a year. Jim Jordan also chaired some of the many Benghazi investigations which implicated nobody.

Jordan claims his office has received information from more than a dozen whistleblowers who came forward with allegations of FBI bias against conservatives, including the agency retaliating against employees with conservative views. Don’t hold your breath. You can expect this investigation to go after Attorney General Merrick Garland.

Jim Jordan shouldn’t be investigating anything when he’s the one who should be investigated over a myriad of issues. This guy can’t even come clean about how many times and when he talked to Trump on January 6.

Democrats created a select Oversight subcommittee investigating the coronavirus, and Republicans plan to keep the committee active…and use it to go after Dr. Anthony Fauci while accusing him of creating the virus. Seriously.

Republicans plan to use the House Foreign Affairs Committee to investigate the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan but probably won’t talk a lot about the fact it was Donald Trump who set the date on which he negotiated with the Taliban.

There are plans to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas for the border situation. Steve Scalise, who’ll be second in charge of the House if Republicans take over said Mayorkas will be given a “reserved parking spot” because “he will be testifying so much about this.”

Last Wednesday on Steve Bannon’s podcast, Marjorie Taylor Greene (who currently doesn’t sit on any committees because she expressed a desire to murder Nancy Pelosi) said Republicans will investigate companies that halted donations to the GOP after January 6, 2021, white nationalist terrorist attack on the U.S. Capitol building. She said, “That’s not going to be forgotten by a whole bunch of my Republican colleagues.” This is fascist. Maybe if those corporations start giving money to Republicans again, then they won’t be investigated. MTG exhibits why it was such a good idea to remove her from her committee assignments. But I really do hope MTG’s future committee assignments don’t distract from her trolling and stalking people like Alexandra Ocasio Cortez and school shooting survivors.

Matt Gaetz, also talking to Steve Bannon (goons keep other goons on speed dial), said their number one priority should be to “engage in impeachment inquiries to get the documents and the testimony and the information we need.” Gaetz said “voters will feel betrayed” if they don’t go after President Biden in revenge for the two impeachments of Donald Trump. Gaetz told Bannon that impeaching Biden should take precedence over “policy and bill making” and expressed frustration with Republicans who might actually want to work with Democrats on legislation.

Gaetz said, “We are in a battle and we have to open up every vector of attack on a corrupt administration that is punishing the American people out of these virtue signals to wokeism.” What was missing was context, like what crimes and misdemeanors did President Biden commit to justify impeachment.

Just imagine the millions of taxpayer dollars Republicans are going to waste on these fake investigations.

The only possible good thing to come out of two years of Republicans controlling the House and Senate again is that it’ll remind American voters with short memories why they should never vote for Republicans.

Mean Girls


There’s something seriously wrong with people who think being vile and disgusting is cute and clever. Lauren Boebert and Marjorie Taylor Greene appear to be in a race to be the most horrible creatures alive. Toxic Betty and Veronica are proof that being able to walk upright and have opposable thumbs doesn’t make you human.

The president deserves respect while delivering his (or her) State of the Union speech unless, of course, that president doesn’t respect the process himself. President Biden respects the presidency, the courts, Congress, and tradition. He deserves respect. But, there is room to express disagreement. If applause is allowed, then a certain amount of objection should be allowed as well. If the opposition party objects, it’s fair for them to grumble and boo…to a certain point.

There were boos from Republicans the other night that lasted about two seconds each and were delivered in unison. I think that’s fine. Two presidents who were great at shutting those down were Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. A president knows which parts of his speech will receive boos, though Donald Trump (sic) always seemed surprised anyone would dare object to what he said. And it was fair when Speaker Nancy Pelosi tore her copy of Trump’s address after you heard what was in it.

President Joe Biden also did a great job dealing, not just with the boos, but with outright heckles. When the Republicans booed him, he just kept rolling with his speech. When two Republican goons started heckling, he ignored them and kept going with his speech. The best response was the non-response. Besides, that’s what I’m here for.

Because of continued COVID precautions, President Biden’s State of the Union address to Congress had a limited attendance yet, somehow Heckle and Jeckle got in. Of course, I’m referring to the Republican troglodytes Lauren Boebert and Marjorie Taylor Greene.

President Biden called on Congress in his speech to pass legislation to aid veterans exposed to toxins while serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. He said it’s a problem that leads to cancers “that would put them in a flag-draped coffin.” As he was saying, “One of those soldiers was my son, Major Beau Biden,” an Iraq war veteran who died from brain cancer, Boebert shouted out, “You put them there. Thirteen of them!”

Boebert was referring to the 13 U.S. troops killed during a suicide attack during the last days of America’s evacuation from Afghanistan.

Throughout the speech, Boebert and MTG were snickering, laughing, making odd comments, and live-tweeting. Boebert tweeted over 50 times during the speech. When the president talked about immigration, the troglodyte twins attempted to start a “build the wall” chant that didn’t take off.

Have you ever been to a sporting event and watched a couple of people fail to get a wave started? They look like morons in their failure and you’re kinda embarrassed for them. But here, I’m not embarrassed for Boebert and MTG. I’m disgusted for them. The people who should be embarrassed are their constituents.

I would say that daycare would be a better place for these two than Congress, but I know daycares typically have standards, and these two would probably be rejected. They’re bullies.

Before she was in Congress, Marjorie Taylor Greene stalked survivors of school shootings. After she was sent to Congress, she went to the congressional office of her colleague Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and shouted through her mail slot. She even expressed support for executing the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi. Lauren Boebert’s list of vile accomplishments includes accusing her colleague Ilhan Omar of being a terrorist. Both of these women have promoted Qanon conspiracy theories. During the white nationalist terrorist attack on the Capitol building, Boebert was tweeting what she believed was the location of Pelosi. I don’t think I’ve used the word “vile” enough in this blog.

There has been plenty of Democratic condemnation of these two hyenas. What we need are Republicans to condemn these two. And in a speech with limited attendance, why were Bizarro World’s Lucy and Ethel allowed to attend.

There’s this joke comedian Louis C.K. says his daughter wrote (let’s ignore his wacky past for a moment). The joke is, “Who didn’t let the gorilla into the ballet?” The answer is, “Just the people who are in charge of that decision,” and “just the folks who make that assessment,” with “their judgment was that it wasn’t a good idea to let him in.” Louis speculates that the gorilla is stopped in line, asks why he can’t get in and believes he should at least get some credit for being able to talk and wanting to attend a ballet. But the door guy says, “yeah, you’re good now but it’s a long show. You’re not gonna make it.” That should have happened at the State of the Union.

The State of the Union was about an hour long and the two cackling goons probably didn’t make it through the first 30 seconds before acting like gorillas. If anything, gorillas would have behaved better.

My point is, as Louis’ daughter pointed out, there should be someone making that decision not to let them in. You don’t need a precedent to know it’s a bad idea to let the gorilla into the ballet and here, we have precedent that it’s a horrible idea to allow Lauren Boebert and Marjorie Taylor Greene anywhere civilized people gather. There should have been a door guy, perhaps named Kevin, to stop them before they entered for the State of the Union address.

I’m not a snooty person. I’m a punk rock guy and I know there are times and places for a mosh pit. I’m OK with the girl seated behind me at Yankee Stadium heckling the Tampa Bay “Fuckaneers.” I’m even kinda OK with the guy on the bus screaming he’s the mayor of Duckburg. There are times and places for that stuff.

The State of the Union is NOT the time and place for the gorillas to be heckling. If LaLoon and Squirrely want to scream and heckle about the 13 deaths in Afghanistan, then do it at a Trump rally. Since he’s the one who negotiated the collapse of Afghanistan with the Taliban, those deaths are Donald Trump’s fault anyway.

Boebert’s Cards For Killers


CjonesRGB12312021

You may think it was bad timing for Representative fucknut Lauren Boebert to issue a gun-themed Christmas card right before there was a mass shooting in her state of Colorado. You would be right except there have been several mass shootings in Colorado. Boebert knows better but she doesn’t care.

Boebert believes she’s some hero of a fictional resistance to a fictional deep state, one that’s coming for everyone’s guns and to control the population. You do know that after the deep state takes your guns, that’s when they start abducting and conducting gay-conversion experiments on you, especially if you’re a white Christian. And after they take your guns, “Merry Christmas” will be forbidden and your children will be assigned pronouns.

Of course the best way to stick a finger in the eye of the deep state and prevent them from taking your guns is to buy more guns and make sure everyone in the family has one. This includes the children so be sure every child in your family has an assault weapon. The assaultier the better.

Did I mention Colorado has had a lot of mass shootings? There was the Columbine shooting in 1999 that killed 15. There was the mass shooting in 2007 at two church organizations in Colorado Springs that killed five. There was the shooting in 2012 in Aurura that killed 12 in a movie theater showing The Dark Knight. There were two in Colorado Springs in 2015 that killed seven combined, one being at a Planned Parenthood clinic. There was a shooting in Boulder this year at a supermarket that killed ten. There was another this year in Colorado Springs that killed seven. And yesterday, there was another in Denver/Lakewood that killed five.

This entire nation is plagued by gun violence and Colorado may be getting the worst of it. So, maybe a representative from that state should have more sensitivity and understanding to be flaunting and celebrating the weapons used in these incidents.

You can be in favor of the Second Amendment without posing for a picture with a bazooka sticking out of your pants zipper.

Keeping up with the Boeberts


CjonesRGB12122021

I’m starting to think people like Republican Representatives Thomas Massie and Lauren Boebert don’t understand the meaning of Christmas.

Both Congressional goons and full-time MAGATs posted their Christmas cards on social media, which is something politicians do. How nice. Usually, when politicians do that, it’s to display their Christmas spirit and to wish all their constituents happy holidays and best wishes for the new year. Sure, it includes a little pandering but that’s expected. They’re politicians. But, Christmas cards are usually non-partisan. Even Mitch McConnell will send out a Christmas card you can’t disagree with.

But for people like Massie and Boebert, it’s now to express their Christmas spirits as much as it’s to express how vile they are. These people lost their humanity a long time ago, so how can anyone expect them to understand the spirit of Christmas?

Sure, these goons claim to be Christians but it’s not very Christ-like to use his birthday to “own the libs.” It’s also not very Christian to use your children as political props…especially them as political props while holding weapons of death.

Representative Massie tweeted out a photo of him, his wife, and their five kids holding assault weapons in front of a Christmas tree. Not to be outdone, Lauren Boebert tweeted out a similar photo of her (with an evil grin) and her four boys holding assault weapons. And, this was just days after a school shooting where four people died.

A Trump cultist colleague of mine posted the Massie photo with the text, “Because of a horrible tragedy that takes place in the country, there’s a grace period one has to wait for which to express support for a Constitutional right? Bull!”

First off, if editors tell me “too soon” about doing a cartoon against gun violence after a horrible tragedy, then it should be too soon for fucknut dingleberry MAGAts to be posting photos of them and their children pretending to be gun fluffers.

It’s never too soon for your gun fetish, right MAGAts? If guns came with vaginas, these people would be sticking their thingies in them. In fact, I just gave the assault industry a billion-dollar idea. Fully-armed sex dolls. I demand a cut so I can donate to charities against gun violence.

The other part of my “friend’s” statement I take issues with is his claim they’re expressing support for a Constitutional right. Uh, why did they pick that right out of the many rights in the Constitution? But let me point out once again, you don’t support the Constitution. You can’t make that claim after you tried to overturn an election you lost, committed a terrorist attack against the nation, and tried to install a fascist dictator. You suck when it comes to the Constitution.

Even if you love guns, why can’t you see those Christmas cards for what they are? Can’t you support the Second Amendment while also agreeing that maybe the assault weapons should be in a locked closet during the holidays? Instead of assault weapons, wouldn’t it be nicer if your children were holding kittens?

If your idea of Christmas is to own the libs and trigger people, you’re not really getting it. This is the holiday celebrating the birth of your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Sure, I’m agnostic and more of a humanist, but I do believe in the Christmas spirit. There’s nothing wrong with it, which is basically…be nice. Love each other…even your enemies. Even though I don’t believe, I return a “merry Christmas” when one is given to me. I’m not a total dick. Instead of being a gun-fluffing dick, volunteer at a soup kitchen. Donate to Toys for Tots. Maybe adopt a rescue animal. It should not be about having your children coddling a weapon of death to fa-la-la-la about mass murders.

These are weapons of death. These assault weapons were made for just one purpose, which is to kill people. And when your weapon is made to hold rounds and rounds of ammunition that can shoot as quickly as possible in order to kill as many people as possible, it’s a weapon of death. It’s a weapon of mass murder. They’re not toys for you to give your children, even if it’s only for a photo-op to trigger liberals right after a similar weapon was used to kill four children.

This vile behavior from Republicans, at least openly, started with Trump. It’s like how Nazis didn’t start marching in public until they had a friend in the White House. But after Trump made it OK for Republicans to be a bunch of shit-asses by tweeting stuff like, “Happy Thanksgiving…even to Democrat losers” and “Happy Memorial Day, even to skanky Hillary and fat Stacey Abrams,” all bets were off with his base.

I expect there to be a lot of tweets saying, “Merry Christmas, and let’s go Brandon.”

Keep in mind, gun-loving parents, that when you’re posting Christmas card photos of your children holding weapons of death, that Hana St. Julian, Madisyn Baldwin, Tate Myre, and Justin Shilling won’t be celebrating Christmas ever again. Why?

Because they were killed at Oxford High School by a weapon very similar to the one your children are posing with.

Hate in an Elevator


CjonesRGB12052021

There is a current debate within the Republican Party over if they should stop being openly racist, bigoted, immature, and cease all the hateful attacks that make them feel so warm and squishy inside. The more mature members of the party are worried all this transparent hatred will carry over and hurt them in the midterms and believe it would be best to go back to concealing their racism inside their policies and dog whistles.

Maybe some members are afraid their racist constituents are too stupid to catch dog whistles. I mean, they’re too stupid for irony, so maybe.

A couple weeks ago, white nationalist representative Paul Gosar, posted an anime video of him murdering Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. He said he was trying to appeal to young people, like Nazi Youth.

Racist representative Lauren Boebert has been on tour doing the same standup routine of accusing her colleague, Ilhan Omar, who is Muslim, of being a terrorist. It’s hilarious if you’re a Nazi.

Bobo tells this story of being in an elevator with Omar (or it’s a colleague in the elevator, depending on which version of Bobo’s you wanna go with), where she says something like “we should be safe because she doesn’t have a backpack,” implying a Muslim would only have a backpack to conceal a bomb.

Can’t Republicans just wink and nod at each other while making it harder for black people to vote without posting anime videos of them killing non-white women?

This is religious bigotry. For Republicans, religious bigotry is OK depending upon the religion you’re being hateful toward. The party’s leader, Donald Trump called for “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States” while on the campaign trail in 2015. He also demanded that all mosques be spied on and some mosques to be shut down. His reasoning for this was that Muslims have hate toward the United States. As I keep saying, Republicans don’t catch irony or hypocrisy.

As president (sic), Trump used the phrase “send them back” in regards to “The Squad,” representatives Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley. This became a huge racist chant at his racist rallies. But the thing is, where did Trump want to send them back to? “Shithole” countries where everyone lives in “grass huts?” Other than Omar, who immigrated to this nation as a child, the other three non-white women were born in the United States. All four women are just as much American as you, I, and Donald Trump.

Though, I’m a better American than Donald Trump because I don’t want to dismantle the Constitution, install a fascist dictator, or sell my nation out to Russia.

Donald Trump is a racist and so is the rest of his party. I used to say that voting for Trump didn’t make someone a racist, but that racism is not a dealbreaker for them. Now, I do believe that if you voted for Trump twice, you’re a racist. You didn’t vote for Trump despite the racism, but because of it. Plus, you have been stupid enough to not catch the racism in 2016, but you had four years after that to figure it out. Did you miss when the guy couldn’t condemn Nazis without quibbling?

Now, there is infighting within the party. Representatives Nancy Mace and Marjorie Taylor Greene are fighting over whether or not the party should be openly racist. While Greene has joined Boebert in describing the “Squad as the “Jihad Squad,” Mace wants to limit the racism to supporting Donald Trump and his racist policies.

Boebert and Greene are documented idiots. While they’re yukking it up about the “Jihad Squad” and Muslim backpacks, they’re ignoring that most terrorism in this nation is committed by people who look like them.

White men are responsible for the majority of terrorist attacks in this nation. While Boebert may be afraid of a Muslim with a backpack, that Muslim has every right to worry about a white person with a MAGA cap.

It was white nationalist MAGAts who tried to overturn an election they lost. It was white nationalist MAGAts who tried to destroy our democracy and constitution. It was white nationalist MAGAts who attacked the United States Capital building. It was white nationalist MAGAts who tried to install an unelected orange fascist dictator.

Some MAGAts are deflecting. They’re pointing out that the driver in the Waukesha parade who killed six people and injured 62 others was a black guy who hates white people. But even if he had killed every person in that parade, white people would still be the leaders of American terrorism. Never mind the fact this man’s supposed hatred of white people had NOTHING to do with him driving through that parade. Also, was this a segregated parade or something?

A lot of MAGAts are talking about Jussie Smollett this week and the hoax he’s accused of perpetrating. He’s accused of creating a hoax of being attacked by Trump supporters and claiming a hate crime was committed. MAGAts would rather talk about the fake hate crime than the real ones.

MAGAts would rather talk about the black guy who created a hate crime hoax and ignore the fact hate crimes increased under Trump nationally by 20 percent. They don’t want to acknowledge that in the counties where Trump held rallies in 2016, hate crimes increased by over 200 percent.

They would rather talk about the black guy who created a hate crime hoax than talk about the black guy who was murdered by three white racists in Georgia.

Republicans, including Lauren Boebert, Marjorie Taylor Greene, and Donald Trump have accused Ilhan Omar of supporting terrorists, though there’s nothing like that on record. But, Lauren Boebert, Marjorie Taylor Greene, and Donald Trump have each supported white nationalist terrorism…and they’re still supporting terrorism.

The real irony here is that every Republican who supports Donald Trump also supports terrorism. For them, as long as the terrorism is white, it’s right.

The Squawking Heads


CjonesRGB12032021

After Representative Paul Gosar tweeted an anime depicting himself murdering fellow representative Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, he pulled it off Twitter and told Speaker Nancy Pelosi, “Relax. It’s just a cartoon.” After he was censored by the House and lost his committee assignments, he posted it back on Twitter.

Keep in mind, he didn’t just see something on Twitter, find it amusing, and retweet it, which would have been bad enough. Remember when Trump retweeted Nazis? Yeah. No, what Gosar did was have his staff create this anime threatening to murder AOC, his colleague.

So, how many times have you threatened to kill a coworker and kept your job?

Last week, Representative Lauren Boebert was speaking to constituents in the dumb part of Colorado (I love you, Colorado…most of you) when she made a joke about Representative Ilhan Omar, who is Muslim, being a terrorist. She told a story about being in an elevator with Omar at the Capital complex and Omar had a backpack. According to Boebert, she made a joke to Omar about her backpack being a bomb. Her Islamophobic audience all had a hearty laugh. She also said Omar was a member of the “Jihad Squad.”

Omar said this event never happened except in Boebert’s imagination.

In the past, Boebert has falsely described Omar as an advocate “for state-sponsored terrorism” and claimed she’s an “honorary member of Hamas” who is a “terrorist sympathizer.” Omar is about as much of a member of Hamas as Boebert is a Nazi and a full-fledged member of the KKK. OK, bad example.

Boebert later talked to Omar on the phone and the conversation started south and went further south. According to Omar, she hung up on Boebert. Talking to someone like Boebert is like talking to a pigheaded racist child…or one of my conservative critics. Boebert did apologize to the Muslim community but refused to apologize to Omar.

Boebert said she demanded that Omar apologize for her “anti-American, anti-Semitic, anti-police rhetoric,” none of which has anything to do with what Boebert said. Lauren Boebert is not an adult and she’s in Congress. Unfortunately, there are a lot of racist babies in Congress.

Paul Gosar knows there have been death threats on Ocasio-Cortez. What he did was endorse these death threats, encourage them, and maybe he even attempted to instigate a murder attempt. The same goes for Boebert. What she did was encourage hate, not just for Omar, but against all Muslims.

Republicans are making up a “war on Christmas” while one of them is pushing a stereotype that all Muslims are terrorists. Fun fact: Most terrorism in the United States is committed by white Christian males and NOT Muslims.

This is what the Republican Party has become. Earlier this year, the House sanctioned Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene and pulled her committee assignments after she issued death threats on her Democratic colleagues.

When Republicans defended Gosar, they lied. Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Gosar never saw the video before his staff posted it and that he apologized. He said, “It was not his intent to show any harm.” The video showed him cutting off a female coworker’s head.

Minority Whip Steve Scalise, who had been shot in an act of political violence, said, “He put out a statement, and he took the video down.”

Representative Tom Cole said Gosar admitted “to a lapse of judgment.”

Representative Mario Diaz said Gosar apologized.

Matt Gaetz said Gosar already addressed his “misguided decision.”

But the thing is, he never apologized and I’m pretty positive he had seen the video before he tweeted it a second time. Gosar told right-wing fucknut news, “I explained to them what was happening. I did not apologize. I said this video didn’t have anything to do with harming anybody.”

Gosar claimed Democrats, liberals, and the media were trying to “cancel” him and said, “If my cartoon can be banned and my free speech is to be banned, then the Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, Disney and indeed most of Hollywood obviously could be banned as well — not to mention Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner.”

Leave it to a Republican to issue a death threat and claim he’s the victim.

Of course Gosar believes it’s his free speech to threaten to murder someone. They also believe it’s free speech when parents call school board members at 3:00 AM and say, “I know where you live, motherfucker.”

Republicans are refusing to condemn violence and bigotry because they’re afraid it’ll upset their base. This is the new Republican Party where the members are in a race to be the vilest amongst them. The GOP is less of a party and more of a cult focused on hate, lies, violence, and gaslighting.

Now, I’m waiting to see who has a problem with this cartoon? Will it be Republicans, Trumpsters, social media?

Relax. It’s just a cartoon.

Liz-Aid


Cjones05062021

I have to get my second vaccination this morning. I’m going to do that first, get a money order for my rent, then return and write today’s blog…if I’m not on my ass. Check back later today.

It’s later today:

Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy wants his party to retake the House in 2022. He believes the only way to do that, isn’t just by enabling Donald Trump’s lies, but attacking anyone who speaks against his lies.

The GOP already has gerrymandering to help them retake the House. Red states like Texas, Florida, and North Carolina are getting new congressional seats and that will help them too. They’re changing voting laws to make it more difficult for black people to vote, which will also help them. So you would think McCarthy wouldn’t need to debase himself by groveling to the Trump base. Except, McCarthy is a Republican and most of that party has abandoned principles.

And it’s not just members of the House engaging in the Big Lie that Donald Trump won the election and it was stolen from him. Senator Mitt Romney was booed last week at a Republican event in his home state of Massachusetts, or Utah…or whichever one it is this week. They booed him because he voted to convict Donald Trump.

Republicans are pushing the Big Lie and gaslighting the January 6 terrorist attack on the Capitol that Donald Trump instigated. While Democrats want an independent commission to study the attack, McCarthy and Republicans want to deflect by making Black Lives Matter and Antifa “violence” a part of the study.

Here’s a fact: The attack on the Capitol was conducted by white racist terrorists instigated by Donald Trump and Black Lives Matter and Antifa didn’t have a damn thing to do with it.

If Republicans have their way, an independent commission to study the attack on the Capitol will be about as independent as the Arizona recount being recounted by Republicans, Trump goons, GOP candidates who are on the ballots they’re counting, and MAGA terrorists.

Now, Wyoming’s lone representative, Liz Cheney, daughter of Daick, is demanding that the party have principles. Keep in mind, this is a person who verbally attacked LGBTQ in order to get elected and has a lesbian sister. But for Republicans, this is about as ethical as it gets.

The party that cries about “cancel culture” now want to cancel Liz Cheney. Cheney is speaking out against the Big Lie, saying the election wasn’t stolen, and the Capitol attack was Donald Trump’s fault. She said Donald Trump’s false claims are “poisoning our democratic system.” That might be where she messed up because Republicans care more about conspiracy theories than about our democratic system.

Cheney is the number three Republican in the House and survived a vote to remove her a few months ago after voting to impeach Trump. Reportedly, another vote may come up and this time, she’s not expected to survive. Matt Gaetz, before his sex scandal hit, even went to Wyoming in an ugly suit with his hair sticking up like Cameron Diaz’s in “There’s Something about Mary,” to campaign against her. Why is everything with that guy icky?

Steve Scalise, the number two guy, said about Cheney, “This idea that you just disregard President Trump is not where we are — and frankly, he has a lot to offer still.” The idea Steve Scalise can’t disregard a flagrant liar like Donald Trump who engineered a bloody coup attempt, is now where this country should be.

Today, Kevin McCarthy said on Fox News that any effort to get rid of Cheney isn’t about her vote to impeach Trump, but her “ability to carry out the job as conference chair, to carry out the message.” That message is a message of bullshit.

Right now, there is more criticism and condemnation of Liz Cheney for speaking her mind than there is for Matt Gaetz, or Qanon fucknuts Marjorie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert. Next year, you can expect Donald Trump to rally against Liz Cheney in her reelection attempt. Right now, Cheney is fighting for her leadership position, but she may not even have a seat in the next Congress while lunatics like Gaetz, Greene, Boebert, and Jim Jordan are still there.

Kevin McCarthy doesn’t not have principles, ethics, or integrity. He attempted to exercise some integrity by blaming Trump for the terrorist attack, then quickly back-peddled when Trump expressed outrage. Then, he flew down to Mar-a-Lago for a Trump photo-op. McCarthy is a coward. He doesn’t actually believe the election lie. He knows Trump lost and Biden won, but he’s too much of a coward to state the truth. He’ll repeat any Trump lie to regain the House. He is worst than your average everyday enabler. He’s a party to the party of lies.

The majority of the party believe Trump won and the election was stolen. They’re idiots.

For me, the Democratic Party is not the solution to everything. I am a liberal but not a partisan. There are plenty of problems with the Democrats and they will never have my loyalty. But the Republican Party has stopped being one that’s just opposite on the ideas, but they’ve become a cult.

The Republican Party would take the presidency, the House, and the Senate, and then stack the courts, despite the fact fewer Americans will vote for them. They don’t care how they get power, just so long as they get it. And they don’t just oppose civil rights, free speech, a free press, women’s rights, reproductive rights, and wanna fuck with elections. No. They have become a party obsessed with worshipping a racist reality TV show host with a dead bleached skunk on his head and who supports terrorists.

The Republican Party will never be a party we can take seriously until they stop being the party of cult worship. And the cult of personality they’re worshiping is a very stupid personality at that.

The people enabling a lying racist who tried to overturn an election through a bloody coup attempt are the ones who should be up against the wall, not the person telling the truth.

Creative note: I know! It was Flavor-Aid. Every time I draw a Kool-Aid cartoon, someone wants to show off their big brain and inform all of us it was Flavor-Aid used in the mass suicide of Jim Jones’ cult. Actually, I have read it was both….but anyway, “Flavor-Aid” does not work for the cartoon. Informing me it was Flavor-Aid is almost as annoying as complaining about the ads on this site. If I see an ad for Flavor-Aid, I’m gonna lose it.

Also, I stared at this idea for about an hour this morning until I gave up on waiting for a better idea. Walking back from the clinic, I got an idea I like a lot better. I’m really kicking myself for not doing that one even though this cartoon has over 300 shares on Facebook.
