Marjorie Taylor Greene

Perjury Dum-Dum


For Marjorie Taylor Greene to win her case to prove she’s qualified for Congress, she has to play dumb. Playing dumb and stupid should be extremely easy for the likes of Marjorie Taylor Greene because she got a head start. The only problem here is that it’s difficult to tell when a moron is playing dumb.

As dumb as MTG is, it’s still incredulous that she doesn’t recall texting Trump Chief of Staff during the January 6 insurrection suggesting they blame ANTIFA instead of the people actually attacking the Capitol building, Donald Trump’s white nationalist terrorists. It’s not believable that she can’t recall texting Meadows suggesting “Marshall” law to prevent Biden from taking office.

At 2:28 PM while the insurrection was in full swing and everyone was having a great time stomping on cops, Greene texted Meadows with, “Please tell the President to calm people. This isn’t the way to solve anything.” Well, golly gee wilikens, there’s nothing wrong with asking the president (sic) to calm his people down. It’s actually commendable. The only issue here is that she knew the terrorists were their people, Trump supporters.

But at 3:52 PM, MTG texted Meadows again: “Mark we don’t think these attackers are our people. We think they are antifa. Dressed like Trump supporters.” Jason Miller, a goon adviser to Trump also texted Meadows that day with the same idea he’ll probably not recall in a courtroom as well. Miller texted that “Bad apples, likely ANTIFA or other crazed leftists” had “infiltrated” the alleged “peaceful protest” by Trump supporters. That darn ANTIFA not letting innocent white nationalists in full body armor with gas grenades and nooses conduct their racist rallies in peace. Bad, ANTIFA! Bad!

Trump’s Fox News goons, Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and Brit Hume were all on board with blaming ANTIFA.

A group of voters in Greene’s congressional district are challenging her in court arguing she violated a provision of the U.S. Constitution called the “Insurrectionist Disqualification Clause” by supporting an incendiary rally that preceded last year’s attack on the U.S. Capitol. It’s a clause in the14th Amendment barring those who have “engaged in insurrection or rebellion” from seeking federal office. Greene has a lot of company, such as Lauren Boebert, Matt Gaetz, Madison Cawthorn, Louie Gohmert, and…who else? Oh, yeah. Donald Trump. All these people should be disqualified from ever running for elected office ever again. And while we’re at it, we need to bar everyone at Fox News from ever running for federal office in case any of them get some bright ideas.

There should be a law disqualifying goons from public office. In fact, I believe every Trump goon, at the very least, should be wearing an ankle bracelet.

Greene’s attorney argued that Free Speech for People, the group bringing the challenge, wants to “deny the right to vote to the thousands of people in the 14th District of Georgia by having Greene removed from the ballot.” It’s a defense that Greene’s voters have the right to vote for the white nationalist terrorist of their choice. This is another example of white privilege. You start a riot then claim you’re a victim. Poor widdle me. I wasn’t doing nothing.

Greene didn’t just say, “I don’t recall” dozens of times in her defense of playing dumb to questions such about texting suggestions about martial law. She also said, “Yes, I was a victim of the riot that day.”

When asked whether unlawfully interfering with the counting of electoral votes in a presidential election would make someone “an enemy of the Constitution,” Greene said, “I don’t know.” She claimed from the stand that Trump did win the election but claimed it was “not accurate” that she wanted Congress not to certify Biden as the winner.

Days before the insurrection, she said, “We aren’t going to let this election be stolen by Joe Biden and the Democrats.” She was one of 147 Republicans who voted to object to counting the electoral votes. She’s on the stand in a court room claiming she never did something her voting record shows she did. This is called perjury because she’s lying under oath. It’s odd that Greene talks a lot of shit about being all about god, saying “god this,” and “god that,” then takes an oath to god, then lies her cultist balls off.

Green was asked about a video she posted in 2019 in which she called on supporters to “flood the Capitol building, flood all the government buildings” and feel free to use violence “if we have to” to get the federal government to address their “huge list of grievances.” She said she didn’t remember doing that.

Greene also doesn’t recall texting Mark Meadows on January 17, 2021, suggesting martial law. She texted, “In our private chat with only Members several are saying the only way to save our Republic is for Trump to call Marshall law. I just wanted you to tell him. They stole this election. We all know. They will destroy our country next.”

Declaring martial law would have destroyed this country, but maybe the goons believe we have to destroy the nation to save it…for white nationalists.

The lawyer leading the challenge to disqualify Greene said, “Anyone who ‘can’t remember’ whether they urged the White House Chief of Staff to talk to the President of the United States about declaring martial law can’t be trusted when they claim they ‘can’t remember’ their own engagement in insurrection,”

At this point, her best defense may be that she never urged martial law, but only “Marshall” law…and then she can explain whatever the hell that is.

Can we make not knowing the difference between “martial” and “Marshall” a disqualifying factor? I mean, if tweeting death threats to the Speaker of the House won’t do it, then what will?

If the challengers can’t prove Greene is disqualified from serving in office based on her participation in an insurrection against our government, perhaps her being in prison from committing perjury during this trial will.

Creative note: I’m still in Washington but I’m heading home soon. I knew all day yesterday that I wanted to draw on this subject, but I didn’t have an idea…and I didn’t get one at the Herblock Awards for Lalo or while staying out until 2:00 AM drinking with cartoonists. But I got up at 8 AM and came down to the coffee shop and this arrived in my head with my 16 ounces. I’m worried it may be an obvious idea but I think it’s pretty good for a hungover cartoonist in need of more sleep.

Music Note: I was back in the coffee shop to draw this cartoon, and I put in my Air Pods and listened to Coheed and Cambria and “Never say never” by Romeo Void.

Republican Groomers


“Groomer” is not just the latest buzzword for Republicans. It’s a vile hateful attack engineered to spread propaganda and hate and to disarm anyone who disagrees with them. If you’re incapable of defending your position on an issue, then the easiest response is to hurl a ridiculous lying accusation at your political opponent, like accusing them of being pedophiles.

When you hear people talk about how divisive we are as a nation and how politics have devolved, this is it. One party is accusing its opponents of being pedophiles simply for the sin of opposing their policies. The policies being opposed here are hate policies, specifically the “Don’t Say Gay” law in Florida.

Qanon espouses a conspiracy theory that Democrats secretly run a blood-drinking pedophilia cult worshipping Satan. The birth of Qanon was “Pizzagate,” the conspiracy theory that Hillary Clinton and other deep-state Democrats were trafficking children into sex slavery from the basement of a pizza parlor in Washington, DC. There was no human trafficking in the pizza shop. They didn’t even have a basement. And forget about there being a deep-state pizza as I don’t think the place even dealt with deep-dish. But, the conspiracy, which was created from the Russian hacks of the 2016 Clinton Campaign, helped create Qanon. It proved to be dangerous too as a right-wing goon drove to DC from North Carolina and shot a gun into the pizza parlor.

Remember when Republicans spread lies that Planned Parenthood was selling baby body parts and then a lunatic with an assault rifle killed several at a PP clinic in Colorado Springs? Do Republicans not learn that their bullshit kills people or do they just not care?

Qanon is still all about this deep-state Satanic pedophile conspiracy, and despite it having been proven false and dangerous in the past, Republicans are now embracing it. Republicans will use whatever sells and what sells to their base is hate.

Senator Josh Hawley and other Republicans accused then-SCOTUS nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson of being soft on pedophiles with her sentencing as a trial judge. Naturally, this was a lie. Feeding into this pedophile theme, Republicans are accusing Democrats and even corporations that are mildly pro-LGBTQ of being “groomers.”

A “Groomer” is an adult who builds a relationship with a child to have sex with. Yes, that’s disgusting. Republicans are now intent on owning the word and definition and probably won’t feel the task is accomplished until the person who does your dog’s hair has to change the job title. How about “dog stylist?”

The party that hates to be accused of racism when they’re being racist is accusing people who disagree with them of being pedophiles. This is being picked up by Fox News. I’ve seen a couple of conservative cartoons on it as well. There is no consideration of the position being given by Democrats and liberals by the GOP. If they disagree with a new hate bill, then they’re pedophiles. Oddly enough, this is coming from people like Marjorie Taylor Greene who’s in the same Look-At-Me-I’m-Stupid Caucus as accused sex trafficker Matt Gaetz. Has Greene made any public or private inquiries into the accusations that her hate buddy is a pedophile? No.

According to Republicans, if you believe everyone should be treated equally with dignity and not be demonized, then you’re a pedophile.

The real irony is that the people so concerned about children hearing the word “gay” in school, or about trans swimmers, or how a Supreme Court Justice defines “woman,” aren’t even human.

The anti-pedo Republicans don’t care about pedophilia any more than as “pro-lifers,” they care about babies. They just care about controlling people. This is less about children and more about liquidating your political enemies. The Republican agenda is a hate agenda. Republican candidates appeal to their base by assuring them they hate the same people. I guarantee this is going to get worse. They’re building a narrative.

I saw a local news story on Facebook today about a man charged with a sex crime with a minor. I read the comments just to see if someone brought politics into it, and there it was. An accusation the man was sent by Joe and Hunter Biden. I searched the hashtag “groomer” on Truth Social yesterday and found over 300 posts about Democratic pedophiles. The theme is that anyone who talks to a child about sex in any manner is a pedophile…oh, and if you take your kids to Disneyland, they’re going to be raped by Goofy. Gawrsh.

Last Friday, Tucker Carlson said on his show that men should “go in and thrash the teacher” for allegedly teaching “sex values.” So now, Republicans have received word from the top it’s OK to start gay-bashing…physically. Last year, teachers were being threatened for teaching Critical Race Theory when they weren’t and school board members received threats over face-mask mandates. Now, they’re going to get beat up for saying the word “gay.”

Republicans are now using “groomer” the same way Vladimir Putin is using “Nazi” in his war on Ukraine. Adolph Hitler, an actual Nazi, did the same thing. Remember when “liberal” was the bad word instructing you to hate your opponent? Is that still a thing?

let’s not skip over the fact that “gay” doesn’t mean someone’s a pedophile. Pedophilia is not a gay or straight thing. It’s sick. The fact is, most pedophiles are straight men. Isn’t Ron DeSantis straight? Isn’t Tucker Carlson straight? Isn’t Donald Trump straight?

Recently, Marjorie Taylor Greene told Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg to “stay out of girls’ bathrooms,” which proves she is too stupid to be in Congress. The men she should be concerned with about being pedophiles going into girls’ bathrooms are straight men, like Dennis Hastert, Roy Moore, and Matt Gaetz. If I was in Florida I’d be more concerned with Gaetz than with Mickey Mouse. I would trust Pete Buttigieg with babysitting way before I’d ever trust Matt Gaetz. I apologize for putting Buttigieg in the same sentence with Gaetz.

This is hate and Republicans are the real groomers because they’re grooming the next generation to be as hateful and as intolerant as they are.

Music note: I rocked out to REM while drawing this cartoon making sure to skip over “Everybody Hurts” and “Shiny Happy People.”

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.

Gazpacho Gestapo


CNN02132022

Here’s your cartoon for this week’s CNN Opinion newsletter. Please sign up to get these in your inbox every Sunday. 

I already blogged about the gazpacho/Gestapo thing, so I’m going to talk about the creative aspect of this one. Read my editor’s blog if you want a real blog on this one.

I had intended to return from Las Vegas on Wednesday of last week as that would have freed me up to focus on my CNN cartoon on Thursday. In case you’re a Republican, Thursday comes after Wednesday. But, I met somebody in Vegas and decided to stay another day and hang out with that person. This meant I would be returning on Thursday when I had to pitch CNN cartoons. Also, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, so no questions from the nosy snoopy-snoops.

I had one idea when I got on a plane in Vegas at 1 A.M. Nevada time. That flight was an hour and a half to Denver. I sat by a Caribou Coffee or some shit like that in the Denver airport and finished my daily cartoon for my clients. By the time I finished that, the other shops were opening, specifically, Dunkin Donuts. I grabbed a coffee from Dunkin and made my flight to Washington, D.C.

The flight to Washington was the first on my trip that had an open seat in my aisle. While landing, the guy a seat from me grabbed the vomit bag and started making those pre-vomit sounds your cat right before it yaks on your bed pillow. If I had even heard him ralphing, less enough, smelled it, I would not have been able to eat for a week and it may have made me reach for a vomit bag. So, I did the only thing a person could do in that situation. I performed the Jedi mind trick on the guy. This is not your time to vomit. You are not going to throw up. You are not nauseous. The plane will settle in just a moment and you will depart a happy camper without filling a vomit bag. Think of flowers and sunny meadows. It worked!

Planes are restricted from flying over the District of Columbia, so they have a sharp decline as they come in for a landing across the river at Ronald Reagan Washington International Airport, the stupidest and most insulting name for an airport if there ever was one. Naming one “D.B. Cooper International Airport” would make as much sense.

Escaping the airport without being hurled upon, I took a metro to the Alexandria Amtrak station where I had two hours to wait for my train back to Fredericksburg. I actually wrote and drew up five ideas for CNN at the train station that had only one electrical outlet (my iPad hadn’t been recharged from the Denver cartooning and my phone was nearly depleted of juice because I had rocked out to downloaded music through my AirPods during my flight to Washington. And yeah, I could hear that guy’s yakking sounds over Green Day). My iPad is WiFi-enabled and rides on my iPhone, so I had internet. Sure, there was the Amtrak internet, but c’mon. I even drew a couple more on the train (where I was able to charge iPad and phone) to the Burg. It was around 5 P.M. when I got to my apartment and I drew up a couple more ideas.

Sometimes my editor tells me we’ll take a break and start over again on Friday, but this time I asked to do that around 7 PM. I was tired. Plus, I hadn’t eaten anything since a bag of M&Ms in the Las Vegas airport (unlike Tucker, I ate the M&Ms and didn’t ogle Green M&M).
But, CNN and I were talking about gazpacho, so there was a plan.

And the first idea I got in the morning is the one you see here. Hopefully, it won’t make you vomit.

Gazpacho Police


CjonesRGB02142022

I knew there was going to be a lot of Soup Nazi jokes after Marjorie Taylor Greene had a flub and said “gazpacho” instead of “Gestapo” in one of her bewildering brain-dead yee-haw rants. But then I thought that it’ll be OK to use Soup Nazi in a cartoon, despite all the memes and possibly other cartoons because everyone else would miss the context.

Hell, even while reading this cartoon, people will miss the context. What am I talking about? I’m glad you asked because I’m going to tell you what I’m talking about.

Stupid congressthing Marjorie Taylor Greene accused the January 6 Committee of going after political targets when they are in fact, going after people who tried to destroy our nation, overturn an election, and install a racist orange fascist puppet who lost an election as our dictator-in-chief. Simultaneously, she accused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of having secret police, which MTG was trying to describe as Pelosi’s own personal Gestapo. Marjorie Taylor Greene lied and accused her opponents of being Nazis. While doing this, she said “gazpacho” instead of “Gestapo.”

Here’s my problem with the reactions to this. We’re all hung up on gazpacho.

We’re all hung up on gazpacho and yukking it up over the consistent stupidity of Marjorie Taylor Greene that we’re overlooking the really serious parts of this.

Marjorie Taylor Greene accused her opponents of being Nazis. She lied and accused the Speaker of the House of having her own Gestapo. She once again equated something to the Holocaust. Did I say “again?” Yeah, it’s not the first time. Hell, it’s not the second time. Instead of calling this out, we’re hung up over soup.

How many memes have you seen on this that only serve to make fun of MTG? Within a minute of posting this cartoon on Facebook, someone planted a meme underneath it, which totally pisses me off. I hate memes. But this meme showed Keystone cops with the label “Gazpacho Police” and another label of “Soup Unit.” OK, why would there be a soup unit of the Gazpacho Police? Gazpacho is soup. Wouldn’t there be a gazpacho unit of the Soup Police? Gazpacho is a type of soup and not the other way around, soup being a type of gazpacho. Yes, I can be very analytical. Also, I hate memes. But, this meme didn’t have context. It only made fun of MTG.

So far, I have only seen two political cartoons on this. Guess what. They were both the same cartoon. Both cartoons had MTG in a bowl of gazpacho. What else did the cartoons say? Nothing. That was it. Hee hee. No context. And, people loved them. The Klan chowder jokes I saw have more context than that lazy-ass shit.

Sure, bad cartoons piss me off. And yeah, readers and editors not being able to recognize that crap is crap annoys me. But I’m more annoyed we’re overlooking the lying and antisemitism in all of this. I take this seriously. While I do use humor to attack it and take it down, there’s a very real danger within a member of the House of Representatives, again, equating stupid bullshit she’s making up with the Holocaust. She’s equating Democrats with the people who committed genocide and the murder of over six million people.

And creatively, it’s an easy day as a commentator and satirist to say Marjorie Taylor Greene is stupid. As one of my very intelligent readers said, “it’s shooting fish in a barrel.” I replied, or in this case, fish in a bowl of gazpacho.

I have this rule for myself that prevents me from drawing cartoons on Donald Trump that merely say he’s stupid, vile, or just a horrible person. Like we already know MTG is stupid and horrible, we already know the same about Donald Trump. Pointing this shit out is very Captain Obvious-like. While I’d use and make fun of the stupid shit Trump would say or do, I’d use it to make a more important point. That’s supposed to be the challenge in what I do. Do I need to lighten up? Probably, but I think I can still be silly and goofy while including context and making important points. I think my rule was helpful (it’s part of a huge list). And yeah, I did break it a couple of times but only when it was too much fun. I’m like the Joker that way.

Marjorie Taylor Greene and other Republicans love to use the Holocaust as a political talking point. While you can occasionally find similarities between a current politician and Nazis, it’s very difficult to find anything equatable with the murder of six million Jews. What China is doing with the Uyghur population is comparable. Having to wear a face mask indoors is not.

In a way, by focusing on gazpacho and the stupidity of Marjorie Taylor Greene, we’re also missing just how vile and dangerous she is. This is a person who has stalked her colleagues and screamed at them through mail slots. This is a person who stalked a child who was a survivor of a school shooting, as she was following him down a public street while taunting him. But sure, let’s make soup jokes.

We need to notice that people like Marjorie Taylor Greene accuse their opponents of being Nazis will be unable to condemn actual Nazis, like the tiki-torch Nazis who marched in Charlottesville or the Florida Nazis who are currently standing at intersections screaming at traffic.

Donald Trump is a clown. He looks like a clown. But we never lost focus he is a dangerous clown. He is a clown with a cult willing to destroy our democracy for him. Marjorie Taylor Greene is also a clown…and very dangerous. Let’s not normalize how dangerous these people are. Let’s not normalize comparing political opponents to Nazis. Let’s not normalize equating discomforts with the Holocaust.

Focus, people…or there will be no soup for you.

Update: Larry Thomas, the actor who played the Soup Nazi has a few takes on this. He is bewildered someone could grow up in the 20th century and not know what the Gestapo was. He believes MTG actually thought Hitler’s secret police were the “Gazpacho Police.” He said, “They say ‘You can’t write this shit.’ It’s beyond you can’t write this shit.”
Greene tried to be a part of the joke and Thomas took issue with that too, as she made a Soup Nazi reference tweeting the “no soup for you” and “and you’re gonna end up in the goulash.” Thomas said, “I’m sure somebody wrote that for her. She can’t possibly be that funny.”

Larry Thomas is right and I would love to sit down over soup with him.

Bluebirds of Crappiness


CjonesRGB01042022

Before you get all excited over Twitter permanently suspending Marjorie Taylor Greene’s personal account, remember that she still has her congressional account. Perhaps the only way to strip her of that is to kick her out of Congress. I apologize for using “strip” and “Marjorie Taylor Greene” in the same sentence. Nobody should have to read that first thing in the morning.

Twitter has a policy it enforces the same way the rest of social media enforces its policies. Sometimes. As someone who’s been slapped around by Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, YouTube, and even LinkedIn of all places, I understand the frustration. Sometimes I’ll have something removed with a message that equates to “you did something bad,” without knowing what bad thing it was I had committed. When social media yells at me, it usually accuses me of hate speech for the act of criticizing hate speech. It’s ironic when a social media platform removes your post waging a battle against hate speech and in doing so, inadvertently protects Nazis. I hope it’s inadvertently. In case you’re a Republican, “inadvertently” means you didn’t mean to do that, which is the opposite of you attempting to destroy democracy.

My posts are usually only removed when I anger the social media gods, with no other repercussions. But I did have a suspension on Facebook for several days because of one cartoon criticizing the Taliban over its treatment of women. Over the following days, several other cartoonists did the same cartoon (while telling me it wasn’t the same cartoon) and Facebook didn’t touch any of those. I guess mine was better. In this case, Facebook protected the Taliban. Of course, during my ban, social media continued to make money off hate groups.

And then there’s Instagram. Ooh, don’t get me started on Instagram. Too late. I’ve started on Instagram. I drew a cartoon comparing the anti-gay policies of the nation of Brunei to Chick-fil-A.
it’s a tiny little oil-rich country on the island of Borneo that’s governed by an absolute Islamic monarchy. Basically, it’s just one guy who collects palaces, Roll Royces, and wives. Chick-fil-A is a chicken restaurant that’s closed on Sundays because it’s controlled by religious zealots who use their chicken profits to fund anti-homosexual hate groups. But I hear they have excellent lemonade. One of these two places created a new law giving a death sentence for committing homosexual acts. I can’t remember which.

I don’t know who I pissed off more, Brunei or the chicken fuckers. But Instagram deleted my account. Now here’s the good part: I appealed and Instagram reversed their decision and told me they had made a mistake. Why, that cartoon wasn’t hate speech after all and they hoped there weren’t any hard feelings. Now here’s the really bad part: They never restored my account. After trying repeatedly to have their platform restore it, I gave up and started a new one (it’s claytoonz2.0). But, my new one only has a teeny-tiny fraction of followers the old one had. My old one had around 7,000 while the new one has 340. Dammit, Robert Reich had shared one of my cartoons from the old account and got me a buttload of followers. How do I convince him to do that again?

Another funny aspect of this is that Instagram is owned by Facebook and there are days one platform is angry with a cartoon while the other doesn’t care. It’s like Mom saying “over my dead body” while Dad says, “sure, go snorkeling with piranhas.” Also, anytime I get a cartoon removed, readers share it and they’re not touched by social media…usually. There have been times a reader told me they got a slap on the wrist for sharing one of my cartoons for criticizing the KKK. Social media is very inconsistent because, throughout all this, Marjorie Taylor Greene has been using social media platforms to spread debunked conspiracy theories like Trump won the election, the white nationalist insurrection for Trump at the Capitol, Covid is a hoax, Jewish space lasers start California wildfires, Matt Gaetz will never be on the registered sex offender list, and that vaccines are killing people.

Twitter has a policy that you can lie four times about Covid-19. After that, anything can happen. Hell, they might let you keep lying. How many lies did Donald Trump tweet before Twitter kicked him off their platform?

How many lies can I tell about Matt Gaetz before I get permanently suspended? Did you know Matt Gaetz’s penis looks like Quagmire from the cartoon Family Guy? Yeah, when it comes out of the zipper, it says “giggity.”

Anyway, the final straw for MTG was that tweeted to her 465,000 followers that vaccines are killing people. She had 465,000 followers? I wonder how many of those were Russian bots.

After receiving the Twitter smackdown, Greene issued a statement saying, “Social media platforms can’t stop the truth from being spread far and wide. Big Tech can’t stop the truth. Communist Democrats can’t stop the truth. I stand with the truth and the people. We will overcome!”

First off, MTG using an MLK statement is so wrong on so many levels. Why do white nationalists love quoting Martin Luther King Jr? You don’t see vegetarians quoting Colonel Sanders (hey, two chicken franchises referenced in one blog. I’ve really been hankering for some fried chicken lately).

Also, white conservative Christians still have this faux victimization going on. From being banned for spreading hate and conspiracy theories on social media to the war on Christmas to being forced to confront their own history of hate and oppression, white folks have it hard. And do you remember how mean everyone was to MTG over her casually screaming at her colleagues through their mail slots?

MTG issued another statement boo-hooing over being suspended by Twitter.

This time, the lunatic posted, “Maxine Waters can go to the streets and threaten violence on Twitter, Kamala and Ilhan can bail out Black Lives Matter terrorists on Twitter, CNN and the rest of the Democrat Propaganda Media can spread Russia collusion lies, and just yesterday the Chief spokesman for terrorist IRGC can tweet mourning Soleimani, but I get suspended for tweeting VAERS statistics. Twitter is an enemy to America and can’t handle the truth. That’s fine, I’ll show America we don’t need them and it’s time to defeat our enemies. They can’t successfully complete a Communist revolution when people tell the truth. Social media platforms can’t stop the truth from being spread far and wide. Big Tech can’t stop the truth. Communist Democrats can’t stop the truth.I stand with the truth and the people. We will overcome! Follow me on GETTR, Telegram, and Gab immediately to continue to hear the truth about the Communist revolution in America.”

That statement was posted on Facebook.

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.

MTG Mandate


Cjones05302021

I have a great idea and unless you’re one of my trolls, I think you’ll like it too. Here it is: Congress should pass a law that any member of Congress, either in the House or Senate, who does not serve on a committee doesn’t get paid.

What is the point of paying someone when she’s not doing the job she was elected to do? Sure, Marjorie Taylor Greene can still be an advocate for her district and sponsor legislation, but she’s not doing that, at least not in any manner that can be taken seriously. The bills she sponsors looks more like trolling than actual legislation.

for example, she sponsored a bill to award medals to cops who “protected” cities during Black Lives Matter “riots.” Has she sponsored any bills to award medals to cops who protected the Capitol during the MAGA terrorist attack? HAHAHAHA….no.

MTG sponsored a bill to protect gun owners’ privacy and another bill to “preserve” the Second Amendment. Amendments are already law. They don’t need additional Congressional protection. This is trolling. She also sponsored a bill to finish Trump’s racist border wall and expel all undocumented immigrants. This bill will also end “chain” migration which would deport Melania Trump’s parents. Did I mention Greene is an idiot?

She sponsored a bill to remove Democrat Maxine Waters from her committee assignments (which happened to MTG) and another to remove her entirely from Congress. She doesn’t just hate blacks and Latinos. She sponsored a bill to prohibit any funding that helps Gaza and the West Bank because Ms. “Jewish Space Lasers” loves Israel so much.

She sponsored a bill to impeach President Biden for “enabling bribery and other high crimes and misdemeanors.” Maybe she got confused from all the Trump bribery and high crimes and misdemeanors.

Playing the persecution victim conservatives love so much, she sponsored a bill to make it illegal to “discriminate” against people based upon their vaccination status. White conservatives are the whiniest people in the world. If you listen to them, they are the most violated segment of our society throughout world history. Yesterday, Senator Rand Paul felt threatened by 80s wimp rocker Richard Marx. Personally, I think white nationalist MAGA terrorists are a greater threat to this nation than music acts like Air Supply.

The Centers of Disease Control issued guidelines that vaccinated people can take off their masks outdoors and indoors. Naturally, unvaccinated mofos who did the least to help this nation combat the pandemic are violating this. They’re demanding nobody ever ask them their vaccination status or question their right to go without a mask…while also being offended by seeing people in masks (yeah, I know. Irony).

Republicans in Congress are upset there is a mask rule for the House floor. These Republicans are either unvaccinated or they won’t reveal their status. They want to enjoy the privileges they actively fought against securing. Marjorie Taylor Greene is the biggest advocate against having to wear a mask and in portraying unvaxxed goons as victims, she compared having to wear a face mask to the…wait for it…Holocaust.

Yes, she compared wearing a mask to people who were forced to wear stars to identify them by their religion, ripped from their homes, had all their possessions stolen, crammed into box cars, forced into slave labor, sterilized, medically experimented on, and murdered. Over six million Jews were murdered by Hitler. Many had the gold in their teeth ripped out, melted, and used to pay for the Nazi’s war effort. Others had their bodies used to make soap. Marjorie Taylor Greene, and many other Republicans, believe this is just like having to wear a mask into Costco.

Let me state this clearly: Wearing a face mask isn’t discrimination or persecution. Nobody is being forced to wear a face mask based upon his or her political beliefs. You have to continue wearing the mask because you’re a vile and hateful icky idiot. You’re gross and need to stay at least six feet away from me for the rest of time.

Speaking of Hitler, Marjorie Taylor Greene said she would oppose any removal of statues of Hitler. She said she would want the statues to remain intact “so that I could tell my children and teach others about who these people are, what they did and what they may be about.”

I have a question: Where are all these Hitler statues she wants to protect? In her house? Also, there are other ways to teach people about history. They’re called books. Quite frankly, I don’t want the goons telling us a terrorist attack as recent as five months ago were only a bunch of tourists and that teaching black history is hateful to tell me how to study history.

It took five days, but House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, the rest of his leadership team of goons, and Mitch McConnell all issued statements saying they disagree with her comparing mask mandates to the Holocaust. How insane is it that Congress has to say the Holocaust was bad and you can’t compare stupid shit to it? How crazy is it that it took them five days to do so? But since they’re afraid of criticizing her because Donald Trump loves her, and they’re afraid of Donald Trump, what would they say if she compared the “stolen election” to the Holocaust?

House Republicans removed Liz Cheney from her leadership position because she wouldn’t support the Big Lie. What would they do if MTG compared their sacred lie to the Holocaust? Would they all be quiet like most of them are now? Would the leadership pretend she didn’t say it? Maybe they’d even endorse her statements. I haven’t heard any of them criticize her for wanting to protect Hitler statues. Are they afraid of offending Nazis? She also said she’d protect statues of Satan (where the fuck are these statues?), but Satan is a fictional character. Hey, I bet if she said that, they’d all lose their minds.

Marjorie Taylor Greene sponsored another bill to decrease the pay for Dr. Anthony Fauci. But Dr. Fauci is actually doing the job he’s paid for. MTG is not. So, back to my idea. Can we stop paying Marjorie Taylor Greene since she’s not doing the job she was elected to do? We are currently paying her $174,000 to be a racist, anti-Semitic, conspiracy theory-spreading troll.

She once yapped through the mail slot of the office for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, saying she paid her salary. Greene, I’m paying your salary and I don’t want to pay you to be a troll. Be a troll on your own dime.

I’m not going to compare her to the Holocaust, but Marjorie Taylor Greene is one of the worst things to ever happen to Washington.

And I just got another great idea: There is a Satan statue, sort of, in Massachusetts. It was created by the Church of Satan in response to a monument of the Ten Commandments being displayed at the Oklahoma legislature. The statue is of Baphomet, who is a goat-headed humanoid with wings. When the statue was unveiled, the only people allowed to attend were those who agreed to “sell their souls” to Satan.

The thing is, the Church of Satan doesn’t really believe in Satan. Satan is a symbol they basically use to troll religious people. You know, booga-booga-booga. The entire “sell your soul” to view the unveiling of Baphomet was to scare away superstitious religious fucknuts. It was brilliant. Maybe we should start a thing where unvaxxed fuckers can remove their masks and enter Costco only after they sell their soul to the devil. And let’s face it. If you bought a membership, you kinda already did.

But here’s my idea: Let’s place this statue in Marjorie Taylor Greene’s congressional district. It can be placed in downtown Dalton, Georgia and when the residents get upset at goat-headed Baphomet standing proudly for all to see, Ms. Greene can enlighten them about how it teaches history. She can defend Satan to her constituents.
Church of Satan, are you listening? I would very much like to see this happen, please.

Creepy White Female


Cjones05192021

Nobody ever asks me anymore, “What are you going to draw now that Donald Trump isn’t president (sic)?” Just like there will always be cops because there will always be crime, I will always have material because there will always be right-wing troglodyte abhorrent bullshit.

I had a lot of days where Donald Trump made satire hard. How do you make drinking bleach even more ridiculous? Even with Donald Trump barricaded in his Nazi compound in Nazi Florida, I’m still having days like that thanks to right-wing troglodytes like Marjorie Taylor Greene.

Does it bother you there are people in Congress who are not as smart as you? Does it bother you they’re not just as smart as you…but they’re knuckle-dragging morons who should be put in baby-proofed rooms for their own protection so they don’t stick forks into electrical outlets? There’s a meme on social media that the reason there’s so much ignorance in this country today is because high schools had their football coaches teach civics. That must be true because Alabama senator and former football coach Tommy Tuberville believes World War II was fought to save Europe from socialism and the three branches of our government are the House, Senate, and White House, and that one party isn’t supposed to control all three (despite all three being controlled by Republicans for two years of the Trump administration. Look it up).

Sure, a lot of these fuckers gaslight, like that Andrew Clyde idiot from Georgia who believes terrorists are tourists…even though he helped blockade a door to keep them from barging in. Be careful! They want keychains!

But some of these Republicans aren’t just gaslighting…some of them are downright stupid. And when you add other horrible traits to stupid, like bullying, stalking, pushing conspiracy theories, and advocating murder, you have a raving lunatic on your hands. And that’s what we have in Marjorie Taylor Greene, a representative from Georgia. Seriously, Georgia?

Before Marjorie Taylor Greene was elected to Congress by the most moronic, stupid, right-wing district in the nation, she was just your average everyday qanon conspiracy pushing fucknut.

This lunatic that Donald Trump said is a “future Republican star” and is “strong on everything” believes that school shootings are “false flag operations.” She believes the California wildfires were started by Jewish space lasers. She called the qanon leader who started the conspiracy theory that the government is being controlled by Satan-worshipping pedophiles a “patriot.”

Do you think Greene doesn’t believe in the Qshit? There’s a video of her stating, “There’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take this global cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophiles out, and I think we have the president to do it.” This person is in Congress. Seriously.

Greene posted in a blog for dumbasses a link about Pizzagate, the debunked belief Hillary Clinton ran a sex slave operation out of a Washington, D.C. pizza restaurant. She wrote, “Shockingly, the website tells about information that was only whispered about and called conspiracy theories.” She believes this shit.

Greene believes in “Frazzledrip.” Oh, you haven’t heard of that? I hadn’t either until just now. Sit down for this one…and put down the coffee. It’s a belief there’s a video (nobody’s seen) that was found on Anthony Weiner’s laptop of Hillary Clinton and aide Huma Abedin sexually assaulting a child before slicing off her face and wearing it as a mask. She wrote, “Most people honestly don’t know so much. The msm disinformation warfare has won for too long!” Again, this person is in Congress. Also, what does Clinton and Abedin do with the mask after wearing it? Does it become a pizza topping?

She has questioned whether 9/11 actually happened. You would think that one would piss of conservatives, right? Wrong.

Before Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died, Greene pushed a belief she had already died and was replaced by a body double.

And of course, she believes Donald Trump won the 2020 presidential election. What’s scarier is that the majority of the Republican Party shares that one. Do you really want to share conspiracy theories with a lunatic? But then again, the GOP is comprised of lunatics.

Before she was elected, she videotaped herself stalking David Hogg, a Parkland school shooting survivor. She even made a video (that she later tried to delete), before she was elected, where she’s outside the office of Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, crouched down to scream through the mail slot, demanding that she come out, stop pushing socialism, accusing her of wearing a diaper, and that she pays her salary.

Oddly enough, I’m now paying Marjorie Taylor Greene’s salary and she doesn’t even serve on any committees.

While AOC was leaving a congressional hearing last week (something Greene won’t be doing because she doesn’t serve on any committees), she was accosted by Greene who was shouting at her about her “radical socialism” and accusing her of supporting terrorists. Greene and the bulk of the Republican Party literally support terrorists. Her Georgia colleague, Andrew Clyde, defends them as “tourists.”

AOC said Greene was “deeply unwell” and she used to throw people like her out of her bar back when she was a bartender. MTG wants to debate AOC, but there is no winning a debate with a mouth-breathing knuckle-dragger. I can’t see Ocasio-Cortez being able to get a word in during such a debate. If Greene really wants to debate issues, perhaps she shouldn’t have done stupid shit, like calling for the execution of congressional colleagues, that got her kicked off committees.

While leaving the House floor this week, Democratic representative Eric Swalwell was screamed at by one of Greene’s aides (shockingly, she hasn’t hired very good people), who demanded he take off his face mask. This is deeply ironic because conservatives are all over social media demanding that nobody question whether or not they’ve been vaccinated and leave them alone while they skulk around unmasked…yet they’re totally triggered anytime they see someone wearing a face mask.

When you see someone outside your bedroom window with binoculars, they’ll probably be unmasked.

Swalwell said he’d had enough of the “marauding goons in the Marjorie Taylor Greene crowd who go around trying to terrorize my colleagues.” According to reports, Swalwell cursed at Greene’s aides, but I one for believe cursing at someone is acceptable when that someone is a right-wing mouth-breathing troglodyte motherfucker working for a creepy icky stalking sea hag sonofabitch.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi and others are calling for an investigation of Greene by the House Ethics Committee. It’s very unethical to bully and stalk your colleagues. The bad thing is, Greene has time since she doesn’t serve on any committees, not like she would have done any actual work if she was still on them anyway.

This bullying, stalking, and being as vile as possible works for Greene. Republicans love it. These are the same people who are defending baby jails and MAGA terrorists. Greene has raised millions of dollars by pointing out how vile and disgusting she is.

Congress needs to expel Greene. If her voters don’t like it, then maybe stop sending maniacs to Congress. The rest of Congress, Democrats and Republicans, deserve a safe working environment. But then again, most of the Republicans support terrorists.

While shouting through AOC’s mail slot, Greene said she’s a woman and proud to be an American woman. I’m not sure she’s a woman because first, she would have to be human.

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.
