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.

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.

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.
