MAGA

Two-Faced Nikki


cjones02232021

Nikki Haley is just as smarmy, two-faced, deceitful, disingenuous, and chock-full-o-bullshit as lying Ted Cruz, except she’s prettier.

While slimy Ted was rushing back to Texas, making sure he was seen wearing a face mask with a Texas flag on it, Nikki was rushing to get inside Mara-a-Lago, hoping to be branded with a MAGA flag. But Donald Trump nixed that.

On January 12, Politico published a story on Nikki where she said about Trump, “I think he’s lost any sort of political viability he was going to have. We need to acknowledge Trump let us down….He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him.”

Shouldn’t have followed him? This from his former Ambassador to the United Nations who intimidated tiny third-world countries to support Trump policies, or they wouldn’t be invited to her parties? Seriously, she did that.

Before Trump secured the nomination in 2016, Nikki was a Marco backer and laughed and laughed when he made fun of Trump’s tiny penis. By the time the Republican National Convention rolled around, Nikki was all aboard the Trump train. She knew Trump would be short on support from minorities and women…and dang it all, she was both. Like Ted Cruz who was big enough to forgive Donald Trump for calling his wife ugly and his father a murderer, Nikki planted her lips firmly on that wide orange Trump caboose.

Nikki wants to be president someday and she knew she needed more experience than being governor of the state that sends the biggest flipflopping no-backbone ass-kissing shitweasel lapdog to the United States Senate. She needed some foreign policy…what’s that word? Oh yeah, experience.

Before Trump’s MAGA goons conducted a terrorist attack on our Capitol and tried to overturn the election, Nikki was enabling Trump’s sedition. She refused to condemn the Big Lie that the election was stolen and even tried to help Trump out. In another Politico story before the bloody coup attempt, Nikki said, “I understand the president. I understand that genuinely, to his core, he believes he was wronged. This is not him making it up.”

As Sarah Marshall said in the movie, “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” “Bullshit, bullshit, bullshit, bullshit.” Donald Trump knew he was “making it up.” This isn’t like someone believing in Bigfoot without any proof, or an expert at “finding Sasquatch” who’s never found Sasquatch (seriously, they’re just experts at being lost in the woods). This was the president (sic) of the United States making shit up. And Nikki, you enabled it.

Now that Nikki turned around and condemned the attack and placed the blame firmly where it belongs, she’s trying to spin her head around again and suck up to Trump. She can’t praise Trump, then tell the truth about his inciting a terrorist attack, then turn around and try to get his warm icky affection again. Who does she think she is? Kevin McCarthy?

The House Minority Leader, Kevin McCarthy, gave a speech laying the blame of the attack on Donald Trump. According to reports, during the attack, Trump and McCarthy were on the phone in a screaming match. McCarthy was trying to get Trump to call off his goons while they were banging on his doors trying to kill him and all Trump wanted to do was first, say it was Antifa, and when corrected, said they were people who cared more about the “stolen election” than Kevin McCarthy did. Later, McCarthy flew down to Mar-a-Lago, made sure a photo came out of him standing next to Trump in what may be the most hideously-decorated room in the world, and groveled for Trump’s icky affection and his donor list. He only got one of those and unfortunately, it was the icky affection.

Mitch McConnell hasn’t made that trip yet. But, his actions don’t make much sense. The Senate MINORITY (I love typing that) Leader blamed the MAGA terrorist attack firmly on Trump and even said he may face criminal charges…right after he voted to acquit Trump. Huh? Of course, Trump didn’t like those words so he issued a statement (because he can’t tweet anymore).

Trump’s statement said, “Mitch is a dour, sullen, and unsmiling political hack, and if Republican Senators are going to stay with him, they will not win again.”

Apparently, it could have been even worse as advisors advised that he take out a parts that included “lots of repetitive stuff and definitely something about him having too many chins but not enough smarts.” That almost makes you miss Trump’s Twitter account. Were they as good as, “Mitch McConnell has more chins than a Hong Kong phone book”? Oh, that’ll slay at the next MAGA rally.

Mitch loved Trump until he couldn’t get anything out of him anymore. Mitch got a whole bunch of judges and huge corporate tax cuts out of Trump and then like a pair of old socks with holes in them that haven’t been washed ever, he threw Trump away. And the same went for Trump. He got everything he could out of Mitch and like an old pair of socks with holes in them that started with the back talk, he threw him away.

You can’t just stick a toe in the orange Kool-Aid. You have to dive in and get your hair wet. After condemning Trump, Nikki sought an audience with him at the golf resort he lives in, but she got snubbed. It’s pretty heavy when Donald Trump won’t let you in to kiss his ass. This is Donald Trump, the same guy who once held a cabinet meeting where everyone took turns kissing his ass.

But Nikki really wants to be elected president in 2024…like a whole bunch of other Republicans. They’re all going to be after that Trump base and several, like Nikki, will try to criticize Trump while appealing to him. But I bet the love for Donald Trump fades. No, not with his terrorist racist base, but with the general public. I don’t see President Biden being so bad that people start thinking, “Man, I wish we had some more Trump,” except for, you know, Nazis.

Donald Trump will probably run for president again unless he’s in prison, too occupied with his debt, lawsuits, and criminal charges, has fled the country to live in a Moscow condo, or finally been gotten by a gator on his golf course. I have ten bucks on the gator. C’mon, gator!!! Daddy needs a new pair of socks! Who am I kidding? Trump would just throw Lindsey Graham at it as a distraction.

I don’t vote for ass kissers so I will not be voting for Nikki Haley…ever. And since I don’t vote for ass kissers that means I will never vote for a Republican ever again.

People like Nikki probably don’t feel any sense of shame groveling to Donald Trump because they already sold out long ago. For Nikki and her fellow Republicans, your soul is gone and there’s no getting it back. It’s just too bad she’s not entirely like Ted Cruz because if she was, then she wouldn’t know what she was missing because she never had a soul.

Scared Trumpers


cjones02212021

Perhaps the main takeaway viewers got from CNN’s town hall with President Joe Biden was that we were listening to answers from an adult president. We have a president who isn’t a fear mongerer trying to capitalize from hate. Unlike his predecessor, we have a president now who does NOT behave like a poo-flinging monkey. I apologize for that comparison to all poo-flinging monkeys.

Even when President Biden gave answers liberals didn’t want, like you’re not going to get free college just yet, there was still comfort they were listening to an adult, someone who is honest. It was comforting. The highlight was probably when President Biden comforted a child.

A mother with her eight-year-old daughter stood up and asked Biden what to tell kids who are worried about getting Covid and dying. President Biden said, “Don’t be scared, honey. You’re gonna be fine. Don’t be scared. And we’re gonna make sure that mommy’s fine too.” He told her directly that kids don’t usually get the coronavirus, and when they do, they very rarely pass it on. He asked another questioner, whose son couldn’t get a vaccination from the virus despite serious medical issues, to hang around and talk to him after the town hall and he would see if he could help her. Did Trump ever hang around after to help anyone who wasn’t him? Did Donald Trump ever try to help anyone without getting something for it?

It was a refreshing change from a president (sic) who gave shout-outs to Nazis.

Of course, the MAGAts tried to fake outrage over President Biden calling a little girl, “honey.” These are probably the same people who laughed at Rush Limbaugh’s parody of “Puff the Magic Dragon,” but titled, “Obama the Magic Negro.” These are probably the same people who laughed when Donald Trump, “their president,” mocked a handicapped reporter with an impersonation.

Donald Trump was a hater who gained the presidency on fear and racism. His very first plan as a candidate was to build a racist border wall to keep out the “rapists and murderers” Mexico was sending us. He defended murderous Nazis marching with tiki torches while chanting “Jews will not replace us.” He gave a shout-out to the Proud Boys, a racist group the FBI says is an extremist group with ties to terrorism, while Canada doesn’t hold back and has classified them as terrorist.

President Biden said he had received calls from all of the living former presidents except one. I think we know who that is but he probably doesn’t count. And in reference to that guy, Biden didn’t want to talk about him and even referred to him as that “former guy.” I like that. It’s better than “former president.” But, some of us are obviously still talking about that former guy. So let’s talk about him.

There were a lot of things President Biden said that the former guy would never say.

That former guy wanted to feed his base, which is why he gave shout-outs to Nazis. President Biden actually told his base things they didn’t want to hear, as in no defunding of the police. He actually wants to increase funding for police. When a woman brought up the government canceling $50,000 in student loan debt per borrower and asked, “What will you do to make that happen?”. President Biden said, “I won’t.”

President Biden called those who support white supremacist ideals “dangerous” and “demented” and said his administration will review the rise of white supremacy among the military and former police officers (maybe defund racist cops? Hmm?). Donald Trump didn’t go after racists. He gave them shout-outs and praise. He talked about how much they “loved their country.” Donald Trump embraced Qanon cultists at his political rallies. By the way, if you’re still defending the attack on the Capitol, claiming the election was stolen, and support Donald Trump, you’re dangerous and demented.

President Biden said that for four years, the news has been nothing but Trump. He said, “For the next four years, I want to make sure all the news is about the American people.” Do you know who would never say that? The former guy who would hate that. He loved it being all about him. In fact, MAGA is all about Trump and less about policy. Today, 70% of Republicans want the party to be the party of Trump. MAGA is a cult.

But the one thing President Biden said that Donald Trump couldn’t have ever said even it was on a teleprompter in front of him, written by someone else, and after he had received a brain transplant was, “I literally pray that I have the capacity to do for the country what you all deserve need be done.” Pray? That former guy only went to church for photo-ops and literally didn’t know the Bible well enough to tell which side was up.

A lot of MAGAts refuse to believe Joe Biden is their president. Many still believe Donald Trump will retake the White House, not in four years, but next month. Seriously. And to be fair, Donald Trump wasn’t my president but that’s because I refused to recognize someone as president who was aided by Russia and conducted everything on hate. I refused to accept a “president” who didn’t actually want to do the job as president. I didn’t accept Trump as my president because being the president for white supremacists made it clear to me that Trump did NOT want to be my president. The people who refuse to accept Joe Biden do so because he’s decent and not that hater…except for the extreme liberals. They’re still upset he’s not Bernie.

No Green Deal, people. Sorry. It sounds good on paper but right now, people in Texas could probably use a few more cow farts.

But here’s the thing, MAGAts: Donald Trump is not coming back to retake the White House next month. And since he lost the popular vote twice, it’s not looking good for him in four years either.

Joe Biden is not perfect, but he is a good man. He’s decent. He’s honest. He doesn’t put himself first. It’s not all about him. He doesn’t try to scare everyone to keep himself in power. He doesn’t give shout-outs to Nazis. And I understand there are a lot of people, Republicans, who miss having a president who sucked up to Nazis. But he’s gone and he’s probably never coming back.

Joe Biden is your president whether you like it or not. And maybe you should start getting used to it….honey.

Creative note: I have not been happy with my caricature of President Joe Biden. Some days, I’m OK with it. Others, I am frustrated. And I was getting frustrated with it last night until this version came out of my stylus. I tried a new tactic of trying to draw his actual face instead of caricaturing him…then turning it into a caricature. The photo I worked off from, found in Google Images, is this one. How long I’m happy with it is still to be determined.

Other creative note: I had just started working on this cartoon and was planning to publish it yesterday afternoon when a friend messaged me that Rush Limbaugh had died. I had CNN on my TV but they hadn’t reported yet. A quick run to my FB timeline showed a lot of posts about Rush dying so I knew it was probably true. You can’t trust nitwits on social media. Last week, someone said Andy Griffith just died. But soon after, CNN came through. But I stopped drawing this cartoon and went to work on the Rush one you saw yesterday. That took about 20 minutes.

The Face That Wrecks The Place


cjones02122021

There’s a lesson to be learned here, kids. Don’t get your lawyers out of vending machines. Also, don’t get them out of Cracker Jack or cereal boxes. Watching Trump’s lawyers in action yesterday, you would think that’s where he got them. But still, out of a Cracker Jack box is still better than out of Trump University.

Donald Trump raised millions for his legal defense. No, he never planned to pay for these lawyers out of his own pocket. During the Mueller investigation, campaign funds paid for his and his trust-fund baby goony kids’ lawyers. Everybody else Trump dragged through the corruption quagmire had to pay for their own lawyers. But if you donated to Trump’s legal defense fund, do you feel you got your moneys worth yesterday? HAHA. Who are we kidding? Those lawyers aren’t going to be paid. Like Rudy, they can charge by the farts and they still won’t get paid.

In fact, lawyers dropped out of the Trump legal defense team over squabbles about getting paid. I didn’t go to college for seven years but I’m educated enough to know that Donald Trump is going to stiff his next lawyer…then his next, then his next, etc. Even the Trump lawyers who defended him in his case against Stormy Daniels got a harder stiffing than she did.

And maybe the lawyers who are defending Trump during his impeachment trial shouldn’t get paid. None of the lawyers from Trump’s first impeachment returned for part two of the Trump leagl shit show. So apparently, Donald Trump went down to a courthouse and found one of those lawyers in a bad suit with ketchup stains bothering people in the lobby, asking, “Do you need a lawyer?” Maybe Trump thought it’d be fine because it worked for Dan Aykroyd in “Dr. Detroit.” And from looking at Bruce Castor’s suit, that’s where he found him…or he was trying to impress the new boss by wearing something from the Trump suit line. Seriously, Trumpers. If you’re not being measured for your suit, you’re going to look like shit. Stop buying off the rack at Walmart. I know this and I’m a T-Shirt and hoodie guy.

But Bruce Castor, in his oversized suit that probably belonged to his father, started his argument praising the impeachment managers, the prosecutors. He admitted that he and his partner, David Schoen, had to change their strategy because the prosecutor’s opening presentation was so good.

The prosecution started by showing a 13-minute video of Trump sending his MAGA mob to the Capitol to stage an insurrection. And the worst thing is, they knew it was coming. This morning, Trump’s legal team objected to the video because it’s detrimental to their case. OK, I got that from the Jim Carrey movie, “Liar Liar,” but that was basically their argument.

Lead House impeachment manager Representative Jamie Raskin argued there is no “January exception.” Raskin pointed out, correctly, “Conduct that would be a high crime or misdemeanor throughout a president’s first few years in office, you can suddenly do in your last few weeks in office without facing any constitutional accountability at all” if Trump’s case is dismissed.

“It’s an invitation to the president to take his best shot at anything he may want to do on his way out the door—including using violent means to lock that door.”

Seriously, it’s just fucking stupid to argue what’s illegal in December is legal in January.

A mob of Donald Trump supporters attacked the U.S. Capitol. Without a doubt, and everyone can agree on this, Donald Trump sent the mob to the Capitol. That mob was not spontaneous. That mob didn’t organize itself. That mob was directed by Donald Trump. He told them to be there on January 6 and that it would be “wild.” Now, Republicans have two arguments.

Argument one: You can’t convict Trump or even hold this trial because it’s unconstitutional. Even Republican lawyers laugh at that one.

Argument two: Donald Trump is not responsible for the violence and insurrection of the MAGA mob despite being the one who sent them and told them they have to “fight or they wouldn’t have a country” because the election was being stolen from them.

If I send a mob to your house and I tell them to just scream on your front yard peacefully, but they bust in and finger-bang your butt, are you gonna get mad at me? Are you going to blame me? Are you going to send me a bill for one of those inflatable donuts? I didn’t do it. I only got them worked up and pointed them in the direction of your butt…I mean house.

For an hour, Trump’s lawyer Castor rambled such a weak defense that even Republican senators reacted to with, “Oh dear God.”

It was terrible. According to sources deep inside Mar-a-Lago (worst porn title EVER), Trump was furious with one person saying, “On a scale of one to 10, with 10 being the angriest, Mr. Trump was an eight.” And anytime Trump’s anger reaches higher on the scale than he can count, it’s bad.

Fortunately for these horrible lawyers, the fix is in. Rigged election? How about a rigged jury? Unfortunately for the jury, it’s harder for them to say they were swayed by a defense that argues the other side presented a better case.

Donald Trump is guilty. The death count from the mob he sent to the United States Capitol to overturn an election and install himself as a dictator now stands at seven. There were multiple injuries. One Capitol Police officer lost three fingers. Another is expected to lose an eye. And let’s not forget Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick who the MAGA mob murdered. And Republicans want to let Trump off the hook before the trial even begins?

If a president can send terrorists to attack the United States Capitol, tweet encouragement to the mob during the act where people are murdered, and not be punished for it, then what is an impeachable offense? Even good lawyers wouldn’t be able to make an argument that Trump is innocent and shouldn’t be convicted and barred from ever occupying the Oval Office ever again.

Brian Sicknick gave his life protecting the men who are going to let his murderer go.

Qongress


cjones01312021

During the Trump presidency, people like me were always asked about how easy or hard it was to create satire about Donald Trump. I just saw there’s a podcast of an interview with Andy Borowitz on that same subject. The thing is, it’s hard to satirize satire. Now that Trump’s gone, supposedly, dammit…I still have to satirize satire. There’s very little satire in this cartoon.

The only thing that’s really satirical about this cartoon is that I have Marjorie Taylor Green wearing the Qanon Shaman’s headdress or whatever the fuck that horny thing was. But the rest of it’s true to life. She is a Qanon fucknut and she believes and promotes everything listed here. She’s also a bully. Oh yeah…the worst part is, she’s a freshman member of the United States Congress. Wait. Is that the worst part or is the worst part the fact the Republican Party has incorporated and endorsed her positions? Is there still such a thing as a lunatic fringe?

Marjorie Taylor Greene isn’t just a stupid person hoodwinked by conspiracy theories. She’s a horrible person. She’s a Trump troglodyte. She bullies children.

A video has emerged of MTG stalking David Hogg, a survivor of the Parkland school shooting, as he’s walking down a street in Washington, D.C. on his way to speak to Congress. The recording made two years ago shows MTG is screaming at him about how she has a gun and calling him a coward. She wasn’t caught on a video…she made the video. She’s proud of being a bully of children.

Now, it’s come to light that she’s clicked “like” on a lot of Facebook posts about killing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and FBI agents who “turned” on Donald Trump. This is a horrible vile person being championed by Republicans.

Yesterday, MTG conducted a townhall in Dalton, Georgia when a reporter from a local TV station attempted to ask her about her beliefs and promotion of conspiracy theories and assassinations. MTG refused to answer saying, “I’m talking to my constituents.”

Then, staffers of MTG told the reporter she had caused a “disturbance” and was told to leave with her crew. It gets worse. A Sheriff’s deputy threatened to arrest the reporter for “trespassing.” It was a public townhall the reporter had been invited to attend. Someone fire that deputy. Law enforcement needs to understand and respect freedom of the press. For a bunch of constitutionalists, they sure are ignorant of the Constitution. Read it, fuckers.

So, we have a fucknut in Congress. What to do, what to do? Should she be tossed out for endorsing stupid conspiracy shit and murder? I don’t know because she won her district with over 70% of the vote and it’s not like they didn’t vote her while being ignorant of her beliefs. She campaigned on them.

Maybe, the Republican leadership can make sure she doesn’t sit on any committees. They stripped racist Steve King of all his committee assignments for stuff like questioning why white nationalism is considered a bad thing. Has MTG said anything bigoted? Yes. She believes Muslims should be barred from serving in Congress. She believes there’s a Muslim invasion happening. She believes George Soros is a Nazi. Yes, they have justification not to assign her to any committees.

What? They just put her on a committee? The EDUCATION Committee? Did Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy get confused and believe he needed to put people on the Education Committee who need an education? When asked about MTG’s crazy and dangerous views, McCarthy said he’ll “have a talk with her.” I’d like to have a talk with him.

But then again, McCarthy is fine with people who spread lies and conspiracy theories. He’s going down to Florida today to kiss Donald Trump’s ass. It was just a few weeks ago that Donald Trump sent terrorists to stage a bloody coup attempt.

Man, it truly does suck to have a Qanon follower in Congress. What? There are two of them?

Lauren Boebert is another freshman member of Congress representing a Colorado district. She’s a big fan of the Q. In an interview on a Qanon-supporting web show, she said, “Everything I’ve heard of Q, I hope that this is real because it only means America is getting stronger and better.” Later, she said she wasn’t a follower and that she was being “vague.” How was she “vague” about “hoping” the conspiracy that the government is run by a deep state of Satanic pedophiles is real? During the storming of the U.S. Capitol, Boebert tweeted locations of House members and that Pelosi had left the chamber, apparently trying to help the terrorists locate their targets. Maybe she was being “vague.”

Let’s get something straight here. Qanon is not cute. It’s not even a fringe thing anymore. It’s widespread and it’s been classified as a terror threat by the FBI. Qanon is also racist. Qanon followers consist of terrorists. The lie that Donald Trump won the election and it was stolen from him only helps support terrorists in their beliefs. Today, there are warnings from our intelligence agencies that Trump terrorists are planning more attacks. These terrorists are supported by people like Marjorie Taylor Green and Lauren Boebert. These terrorists are supported by the Republican Party and the former president (SIC!) of the United States.

Kevin McCarthy and the entire Republican Party shouldn’t “have a talk” with Marjorie Taylor Green or Lauren Boebert. They should be removed from all committee assignments and expunged from the Republican Party. For aiding terrorists, Boebert should be removed from Congress. Perhaps she should be in prison. They don’t need to be talked to. Just get rid of them.

Marjorie Taylor Green is unfortunately supported by her constituents. They don’t care she’s a nutjob, fucknut troglodyte shitweasel who believes in conspiracy theories. They don’t care she’s part of a following that supports terrorists. And even though the information that she’s a bully of children is new, I’m sure her Georgia district won’t have a problem with that either. Why not? Because they’re Republicans. This is the party supportive of Donald Trump’s baby jails.

But, perhaps Marjorie Taylor Green can be removed from Congress for endorsing murdering the Speaker. But then again, today’s Republican Party doesn’t care about sedition, insurrection, or terrorism, even when it’s aimed at them. I’m shocked they haven’t put MTG and Boebert on any intelligence committees.

These people shouldn’t be in Congress. They should be on a street corner holding a sign saying, “The end is near,” or in a relative’s attic. Or better yet, perhaps a padded room.

Every Republican should stand up and demand the removal of Qanon fucks from Congress. But then again, they should have done that with Donald Trump four years ago.

Creative note: Every morning after I am done lettering the cartoon, I send it to Hilary and Laura for proofing. The lettering is the first thing done after the rough stage. This morning, I dragged the file into the wrong window and sent it out on Twitter and Facebook. So, for about ten minutes, my followers got to see a sneak peek of today’s cartoon in its rough stage. By the time I noticed what I had done, there were several comments on the cartoon and nobody seemed to notice it was in the rough stage. It’s a good thing I’m not like Kellyann Conway keeping naked pictures of my teenage child on my device.

It looked like this.

False Flag Operation


cjones01302021

The Oregon Republican Party isn’t just saying “so what” about Donald Trump’s little violent insurrection party at the U.S. Capitol three weeks ago. The state GOP has officially latched onto a conspiracy theory that it was a “false flag operation.”

The party issued a resolution stating, “The violence at the Capitol was a ‘false flag’ operation designed to discredit President Trump, his supporters, and all conservative Republicans; this provided the sham motivation to impeach President Trump in order to advance the Democratic goal of seizing total power.” They’re basing this on a conspiracy website and The Epoch Times, a pro-Trump publication that’s just a prettier Daily Stormer.

Since the insurrection, over 100 of the terrorists have been arrested and they’ve all been documented as strong Trump supporters. So, if you accept the Oregon GOP’s “logic” (those are air quotes), then Trump supporters wanted to make Trump and his supporters look bad. To be fair, Trump supporters often make themselves look bad.

And the fucknuts aren’t just limited to Oregon. State party leaders across the nation are going after fellow Republicans who aren’t Trumpy enough. While the Trump cult cries about censorship and “cancel culture,” they’re eating their own for the sin of free thinking.

In Arizona, the party censured Governor Doug Ducey for defying Trump and taking the coronavirus seriously, and for not stealing the state’s electoral college votes for Dear Leader. They also censured former senator Jeff Flake and John McCain’s widow, Cindy McCain, for endorsing Joe Biden. The censure is a powerful thing but still, how dare they not goosestep along with the beat?

The chairman of the South Carolina Republican Party issued a statement condemning Congressman Tim Rice for voting to impeach Donald Trump.

The Oregon GOP resolution also condemns the ten Republicans who voted to impeach Trump stating, “The ten Republican House members, by voting to impeach Trump, repeated history by conspiring to surrender our nation to Leftist forces seeking to establish dictatorship void of all cherished freedoms and liberties.”

Certifying the winner of a presidential election, as the Constitution demands, is establishing a dictatorship? Now I know why the Oregon GOP is not taken seriously in Oregon…except you know, when they hold the door open for terrorists.

Before MAGA terrorists attacked the U.S. Capitol, they attacked the Oregon state house. One of the Republicans voting for their “false flag” resolution is chief of staff for a state representative caught on camera holding a door open for the mob.

In Hawaii, the vice chair of communications of the state Republican Party had to resign after tweeting support for Qanon, the conspiracy theory troglodytes that enable terrorists. He actually sent multiple tweets, with one saying, “We should make it abundantly clear — the people who subscribed to the Q fiction, were largely motivated by a sincere and deep love for America. Patriotism and love of County should never be ridiculed.” He also tweeted that Qanon followers are “patriots.”

Personally, I think people who believe in deep state lizard people who are Satanic-worshipping pedophiles should always be ridiculed. New Congresswoman, Marjorie Taylor Green, a follower of Qanon who liked Facebook posts about killing Nancy Pelosi, should require constant ridiculing. Ridiculing ridiculous people helps make them less dangerous. She liked those posts about executing Democrats. She didn’t give them the frowny-face emoji.

Social media accounts connected to Qanon helped coordinate the terrorist attack on the U.S. Capitol which resulted in the deaths of five people, including a Capitol Police officer. Qanon has been labeled a terrorist threat by the FBI. Republicans supporting Qanon may as well be tweeting support to al-Qaida and ISIS. We have supporters of terrorists in the United States Congress.

Back at the U.S. Capitol building, in the very same chamber they had to flee because MAGA terrorists were invading, 45 Republican senators voted yesterday that impeaching Donald Trump was unconstitutional. Forget they were standing where it happened. Forget they saw it happen. Forget that the mob was out to kill them. When it comes to choosing America or their cult leader, the Republican Party chooses the cult.

Only five Republican senators voted that the impeachment was constitutional. Do you know what’s unconstitutional? Overturning an election because you don’t like the outcome. It’s unconstitutional to give the presidency to the guy who came in second in electoral votes. It’s unconstitutional to hand the presidency to a fascist dictator. It’s unconstitutional to attempt a bloody coup.

Mitch McConnell, MINORITY Leader (that looks nice in print), voted against the trial…stating it’s unconstitutional to try a former president AFTER he delayed the trial until Donald Trump…wait for it…became a former president (sic). This is the same kind of fucking logic McTortoise Face used in stealing two Supreme Court seats.

Senator Lindsey Graham gave a speech in that same chamber the night of the insurrection saying he couldn’t support Trump anymore. He said, “All I can say is count me out. Enough is enough… We’ve got to end it.” A week later, he was flying on Air Force One again. Graham voted that the Senate trial was unconstitutional. Even Riff Raff bailed on Frank-N-Furter eventually.

Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley also voted that the trial would be unconstitutional…after supporting an unconstitutional coup attempt. We’re allowing the terrorists to vote on whether a terrorist should be convicted or not.

Marco Rubio voted the same way and along with former Trump U.N. Ambassador, Nikki Haley, cried that the trial would be divisive. You know what’s divisive? Coup attempts, terrorists attacks, overturning elections, MAGA mobs of fucknuts, etc. Nikki cried that we need to “give the man a break,” casting Trump as a victim in all this. She whined that people have been going after him since before he was elected. She forgets, she was one of them before she became a Trumper. In fact, it was in her state, and at a rally she coordinated, where Marco Rubio made fun of Trump’s little penis. She laughed along. She didn’t say, “Give the man a break” when Marco was talking about Donald’s dinky dick.

There’s been talk about a huge divide in the Republican Party over choosing America or Donald Trump. There’s been speculation that the party wants to move on and distance itself from Mango Mussolino, Hair Gropenfuhrer, the Orange-Flavored Shitgibbon, Mr. I’d-Date-My-Daughter-If-She-Wasn’t-My-Daughter-MMM-MMM-MMM. But it appears that while thousands of Republicans have become former Republicans since Cheeto’s terror attack, elected Republicans and party officials are sticking with Donald Trump. They’re choosing cult over policy and an orange racist personality over country.

But people are leaving the GOP in higher numbers than usual after an election. In North Carolina, 6,000 Republicans have bailed on the party. In Arizona, 7,5000 left. Thousands have also left in Florida, Pennsylvania, and Colorado. Polls show that a majority of Republicans want to move on from Trump…but it’s the terrorists the party is listening to.

Naturally, everything Republicans claim they support is something they’ll easily discard for Trump, like patriotism, family values, and washing their hands. Now, the same gang who got upset over kneeling during the national anthem, who want a Constitutional amendment protecting the American flag, are ditching the American flag for the MAGA flag.

In refusing to punish a president (sic) who instigated a terrorist attack against our nation, who tried to overturn an election, who tried to steal power for himself, the Republican Party has put cult of personality over the nation. The GOP has abandoned all principle and integrity. Donald Trump doesn’t need to create a new party because he already has. The Republican Party isn’t even conservative anymore. It’s just a cult. Instead of punishing terrorists, they’re now holding the door open for them.

The Republican Party is raising the MAGA flag and seeing who salutes.

Deprogramming MAGA


cjones01282021

If you’re a Trump supporter, you’re probably in a cult.

I mean, if you casually voted for Trump after analyzing both candidates, then decided you’re OK with Nazis, maybe you’re not in a cult and you’re just an average, normal everyday-kind of racist. But if you’re a fire-breathing Donald Trump supporter, where he is the ultimate authority and everything he says is true and the law, then you’re in a cult. If you believe Never Trumpers are the equivalent of sinners, yeah, you’re in a cult. Seek help.

One of the signs that you’re in a cult is believing everything the leader says. By this point you’re brainwashed. It starts by repeating a lie constantly until that lie is the utmost truth and the people who point out facts aren’t just the liars, but evil. After you’re brainwashed, the lies become more easily accepted.

If you believe there is a deep state running this government that’s comprised of Satan worshipping pedophiles, you’re definitely in a cult. If you believe cannibals are controlling the government, you’re in a cult. If you believed in Pizzagate, you’re in a cult. And it’s brilliant how that’s done.

It’s starts with super crazy and then they sell you something that doesn’t have lizard people or the devil, and things start looking normal and easy to believe… but because you’ve been desensitized to crazy bullshit, you can’t even spot crazy anymore.

Maybe you did vote for Trump but you don’t believe any of the Qanon stuff I listed above. But you’re probably still in a cult. What’s just as crazy as believing in deep state lizard people? Believing Donald Trump won the election, or the election was stolen, or that dead people were voting, or Dominion voting machines were switching votes, or there were ballot dumps.

If you believe it’s impossible that this nation would reject a guy who tanked the economy then did nothing while over 400,000 American died from a virus, you’re in a cult.

How many times was the election fraud lie drilled into your head? How many facts do you have that support your belief Trump won the election? You don’t have any. Look at the “facts” you believe you have. Are they actually facts? No. They’re not. You’re in a cult.

Did you believe that Congress wouldn’t certify the election on January 6? I talked to several Trump cultists who had strong faith that wouldn’t happen.

After that happened, did you believe that on inauguration day, some sort of miracle would arrive to prevent Joe Biden from being sworn in? I’ve talked to a few cultists who believed that.

Do you now believe that somehow in some shape or form, Donald Trump is going to be president again in the next few weeks or months? How crazy is that? It’s crazier than Pizzagate, but there are people who believe it.

The cultists are a major problem in this nation. Having half this nation base everything they believe on conspiracy theories is a major problem for both political parties. It’s a major problem for this entire nation. This nation will have a very hard time making progress in any area while half the country believes in dogmatic, cultist bullshit. And the rest of the world is looking at us the same way they look at the citizens of North Korea, except the North Koreans don’t have access to information. You do. You’re just choosing not to use it. Seriously, if you gave North Koreans State TV and CNN, a bunch of them would turn the channel to CNN. You’re not. You’re still watching State TV that’s praising Dear Leader.

We can’t give the McCarthy treatment to everyone who disagrees with us, but we can at least identify those who are poisoning our country. We can spot each one who’s spreading hate and fear and preaching violence…and then we can round them all up and give them electric shock treatments. Just kidding….mostly. But we do need to deprogram Trump cultist in a national campaign. Hopefully, we can limit the outlets that spread ignorance and stupid shit.

Already, misinformation about election fraud decreased online by 73% in the weeks following Donald Trump’s ban from Twitter and other social media accounts. One man had the ability to poison half this country. Donald Trump is toxic. He’s poison. Donald Trump showed us what sort of power Joseph Goebbels would have had with Twitter. Hate and lies is all Trump dished, and half this nation ate it up.

Removing lies and hate speech, especially those designed to overthrow the government, from online platforms is not censorship. As we see now, it’s a public service. Removing hate speech and lies from social media is a health initiative for this nation. Hate is a national security threat.

And, if you believe the storming of the Capitol was a good thing, then you’re not just in a cult, but you’re also a white nationalist. We see through you. White nationalism is the greatest terror threat facing this country.

There will always be people who’ll believe in any crazy shit, like the Earth is flat, the moon landing was faked, Elvis is still alive, Pepsi is better than Coke, ketchup goes on hot dogs, etc. But maybe after a few months of seeing a human being in the White House, a guy who’s decent, not repeating hateful rhetoric, not retweeting Nazis, the kind of guy a dog will come to…then maybe this boiling hatred from the Trump cult will simmer down. Maybe after the heat decreases, they’ll actually start to listen.

And maybe eventually, we can solve the greatest mystery which is: How did they brainwash people without brains?

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.

Hump Day Treason


cjones01172021

First, I gotta get this off my chest: If you still live at home and you need your mommy to tell the jail you were thrown into after committing a terrorist attack that you can only eat organic food or it’ll give you the rumbly tummy, then maybe you’re not big boy enough to take part in terrorist attacks. Also, I don’t know how you were raised, but if I committed treason, and pooped all over the capitol building hallways, I wouldn’t want my mother to find out. I would have been more afraid of what my mom would have done to me than any law enforcement. These MAGA terrorists? They took their moms with them. As Monica Hess writes for The Washington Post, Zip-Tie Guy might have brought his mother to the terrorist attack. And I always thought the “Tijuana Bring Your Mother To The Gangbang” song was inappropriate.

For weeks, MAGA terrorists were telling us they were coming to the capital to mount an insurrection. They weren’t just telling each other in code on Parler and Gab (EdnesWay, ApitalKay, AboomKay), whatever the hell “Gab” is. They were broadcasting it loud and clear on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. A MAGAt in my friend list on Facebook advertised several times that they were coming to Washington to prevent Joe Biden from becoming president. After the attack, why, it was Antifa who did all the violence…which was awesome and patriotic and…they’re coming back. This person made a post stating that Joe Biden will never be sworn in, but if he is, he won’t be president for long. What does that mean? Well, I think it means enough that law enforcement should pay attention and be prepared. And also, there are Republican members in Congress who talk like that stupid Facebook MAGAt.

Despite the MAGAts advertising they were coming…and despite the president (sic) of the United States saying they were coming and it was going to be “wild,” law enforcement didn’t do much. Even during the attack, requests for back-up went unanswered for hours.

A senior official at the FBI declared the bureau had “no intelligence” that anyone supporting Donald Trump and his bogus claim of having the election stolen from him, was headed to Washington planning to do harm. But that’s not true. The day before the attack, the FBI office in Norfolk, Virginia received a warning that MAGA goons were planning violence and “war.”

The Norfolk office said there were calls for “violence” in response to “illegal lockdowns” to begin on January 6 in Washington, DC. From online chatter, the FBI knew that terrorists were meeting in Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and South Carolina and would head in groups to Washington.

One of the hate-forum messages the FBI found and shared internally said, “Be ready to fight. Congress needs to hear glass breaking, doors being kicked in, and blood from their BLM and Pantifa slave soldiers being spilled. Get violent. Stop calling this a march, or rally, or a protest. Go there ready for war. We get our President or we die. NOTHING else will achieve this goal.”

Yeah, that’s the first time I’ve heard “Pantifa” also. I think it’s a combination of “pussy” and “Antifa.” Oh, so clever. Do Antifa guys’ mommies help with their jail food too?

Now there are reports that the MAGA terrorists are planning attacks in every state capital (in case you’re a Republican, there are 50 of them), and once again in Washington, D.C.

Since we know this, law enforcement should be prepared. There are reports that there will be at least 15,000 National Guard troops in the capital on inauguration day. But they also need to be aware of who the terrorists are.

And get this: The Joint Chiefs had to issue a statement to all members of the military that it’s their job to defend the United States, not partake in “sedition and insurrection.” Why did they have to issue this statement? Because some members of the Capitol Police may have helped the terrorists.

Two Capitol Police officers are under suspension and ten more are being investigated. It’s reported that some opened doors for the terrorists and gave directions to specific congressmembers’ offices. One of the cops even posed for a selfie with a MAGAt terrorist.

We know that at least three congressmen helped organize the rally. Trump goon Ali Alexander said he organized the rally with help from Congressmen Mo Brooks, Andy Biggs, and Paul Gosar. During the attack, Congresswoman Lauren Boebert tweeted that Speaker Nancy Pelosi had “been removed from the chamber,” helping the terrorists, like Zip-Tie Guy and his mom, try to find her location. These are conspirators in a terrorist attack. These are people in the United States Congress who committed sedition and rebellion. These are members of Congress who are accessories to attempted murder.

And they’re still cooperating in it. Marjorie Taylor Green, a freshmen member of Congress from Georgia, who is a Qanon follower, tweeted yesterday, “President Trump will remain in office. This Hail Mary attempt to remove him from the White House is an attack on every American who voted for him. Democrats must be held accountable for the political violence inspired by their rhetoric.” And she’s in Congress.

These members of Congress don’t deserve to be in Congress and should be removed as the 14th Amendment stipulates. They also need to be identified as supporters of terrorism.

While the Trump administration is deflecting and re-classifying Cuba as a state sponsor of terrorism, Donald Trump is a sponsor of terrorism. And he’s still doing it. Yesterday, he said about the impeachment, “Be careful what you wish for.”

The Proud Boys, who took part in last week’s attack, may be labeled as a terrorist organization by Canada soon. The United States should have listed them as a terrorist organization a long time ago. Instead, who does the Trump administration designate as “enemies of the American people?” The free press and Canadian cheese.

By the way, has Donald Trump called for his MAGAt terrorists to stay home, to not engage in violence? Not really. He said he didn’t want any violence while rambling about stolen elections yesterday. But he hasn’t come out and given an explicit statement against violence or toward the people who he earlier said were “special” and that he loved. Actually, he said that while they were still attacking the capitol building.

These are terrorists trying to overturn an election. Just as terrorists do, they’re basing their beliefs on lies. They’re trying to steal our democracy, destroy our republic, and install a fascist leader. You read the terrorist’s words. “We get our President or we die.” They don’t care what the voters said.

My hope here is that they spent all their money on the last terrorist attack, all the rooms are booked or overpriced in the Washington area for the inauguration (they are expensive), and they don’t hear that a judge helped raccoon-tail-wearing horny Tarzan get his organic jail food (we’re trying to make jail more comfortable for terrorists now?).

For all I care, they can all go to prison, and and eat shit. Them and their mamas.

White Privilege Riot


cjones01112021

Like many other liberals, I have a few MAGA friends among my Facebook friends. I usually don’t talk to them and over time, the number dwindles as they usually unfriend me. But today, I’m going to use my friend-for-now, Lynn in Oklahoma, as an example.

Lynn has always been kinda nice and I’ve only met her once in person over the past ten years or so since we’ve been friends. And with all due respect to Lynn, she’s an idiot. Lynn believed Trump would win the election…and she still believes Trump is going to win the election. She believes that yesterday when Trump said a “new” administration would be taking over, that on January 20, it’ll be a new Trump administration. Lynn says it’s not over. Lynn is an idiot but perhaps attention should be paid to her as before the riots in Washington began, Lynn was online bragging about the upcoming attack in Washington.

Lynn spent days posting on Facebook about how “patriots” were going to force Congress to give Trump the election and prevent Biden from ever taking power. Surely, Lynn has been hanging out on other sites besides Facebook but she’s not special, as Trump described his mob. Everybody knew there was a large mob headed to Washington to “protest” on January 6.

You did not not have hang out in the hate forums to know this. You don’t even need a social media account to know it was going to happen. Donald Trump, the president (sic) was tweeting about it which the news covered. Everybody knew an angry mob of conspiracy-minded, democracy-hating goons were headed to the nation’s capital. Everyone knew except for the people in charge of defending the nation’s capital.

You may think that you don’t call out the military for a protest. Protests are a Constitutionally-protected right. But, last June, the military was all over Washington, D.C. for the Black Lives Matter protests. Even on election night, helicopters were following BLM marchers through the city. And these marchers weren’t breaking anything.

Last June, the DC National Guard was on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to prevent protesters from going in. It’s an open-air memorial and there’s nothing there to break. Wednesday, the MAGA Mob, incited by Donald Trump for days, had already broken into the capitol building, breaking windows, destroying federal property, taking the speaker stand in the Senate chamber, destroying the office of the Speaker of the House, and even stealing property before the National Guard was even called.

Why wasn’t Washington prepared? They knew this was coming. The leader of the federal government incited it. He called them out. He said something “wild” would happen January 6. After threatening for days they were going to attack the capital, the federal government did nothing to prepare. But for Black Lives Matter, planning protests in the streets, the big guns were called out.

Last June, BLM protesters were given a curfew to get off the streets, even though they were peaceful. Before the curfew took effect, Donald Trump had them teargassed and chased away from Lafayette Square in front of the White House so he could take a photo-op outside a church while holding a Bible upside-down.

On Wednesday, Donald Trump held a rally in Washington and told his MAGAts to storm the capitol building. He told them to be tough. Rudy Giuliani called for “trial by combat.” Donald Trump Jr. told the crowd to “stand up and fight.” Daddy Trump told them, “Let’s walk down Pennsylvania Avenue,” and promised he would “be there with you.” Instead, he ran back to his bunker inside the White House which can barely be seen for all the security around it.

There were 88 arrests from one protest last June. Wednesday, there were only 26 arrests on Capitol Hill.

The man photographed in Nancy Pelosi’s office with his feet on her desk, who vandalized the place and stole government documents, is white nationalist Richard Barnett from Arkansas (shocker).

White nationalist Richard Barnett, who broke into and vandalized the office of the Speaker of the House, gave interviews to the national media where he brandished documents he stole. Law enforcement knows who he is, knows his face, and they know where he lives. And yet, he’s still a free man. That is some serious white privilege.

Update: At 1:46 PM today, January 8, 2021, CNN reported that the FBI arrested Barnett in Little Rock, Arkansas.

A black protest wouldn’t have made it up the steps of the capitol building less enough, through the doors. There’s no way in Hell a member of the Black Panthers would have ever made it to Mitch McConnell’s office to put his feet on the desk.

There were only 26 arrests on Capitol Hill Wednesday…and they even killed a cop. The Capitol Police, for their part, killed one of the terrorists. How many would they have killed if had been a cop-killing black protests? How many cops did Black Lives Matter kill last year? None. MAGA brought Molotov cocktails and pipe bombs to the capital. Black Lives Matter, did not.

MAGA has killed more police than Antifa or Black Lives Matter. Yet, who gets the military called out before the protest even starts?

The police and military in Washington failed. Their failure is based in systemic racism.

White privilege extends to white terrorists.
