Orders From The Top


Cjones08032021

A couple days ago, a right-wing oafish cartooning colleague of mine tweeted that comparisons between Donald Trump sending his white nationalist terrorists to attack the Capitol in order to overturn a democratically-held election to install him as a fascist dictator and Charles Manson sending his followers to murder nine people, was wrong.

The people who don’t accept the comparison also don’t believe the attack was an insurrection and have a lot of trouble with the word “terrorists.” But the comparisons are valid.

First off, they’re both cults. If you don’t think the comparisons are valid, you’re probably in one of the cults. And if you’re in the Manson Family cult, then you’re probably really offended being compared to a bunch of MAGAts.

There is no evidence Charles Manson ever ordered the murders. There’s no evidence he ever told any of his followers to kill anyone. But he did send them out and they did commit murders, most notably, pregnant actress Sharon Tate.

Charles Manson was found guilty of first degree murder in seven of the killings. The prosecution argued his ideology constituted an overt act of conspiracy.

His ideology constituted an overt act of conspiracy. That is important to note.

Donald Trump’s ideology constituted an overt act of conspiracy which led to the attack on the United States Capitol complex. The people who share his ideology, which is a cult worship of Trump, are still denying it ever happened.

The people who followed Manson and who follow Trump are lunatics. They are cult members.

Donald Trump told his cult to be at the Capitol that day….to come to Washington. He tweeted it was going to be “wild.” His campaign spent $2.7 million to rally the terrorists. Donald Trump told them to march on the Capitol. They carried nooses and other assorted weapons. They brought zip ties. They chanted to hang Mike Pence. They called out for Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez. They barged in by overrunning the Capitol Police. Five people died.

Charles Manson was not with his followers when they committed the murders. Trump was not with his followers either, but he said he would be. Trump did get to watch it on TV. According to reports, it made him really happy. When asked to call off the terrorists, he refused for hours. Even when he did call them off, he told them that he loved them and they were “very special.” That is a cult. Your cult leader loves you and says you’re “very special.”

Manson told his family he loved them.

Manson was tried by a jury. Trump was tried by the Senate, which was full of his cult members. Manson’s jury didn’t seat any members of his cult. Why? Because that would have been insane and wouldn’t have been a real trial.

There needs to be a real trial for Donald Trump, and as far away from politics as possible. No Trump cultists should be allowed to sit on the jury.

Donald Trump’s ideology constituted an overt act of conspiracy. He needs to be tried for that.

By the way, another thing Trump and Manson have in common is they’re both white supremacists.

Fascist Putter


Cjones07152021

Last night, I binged every episode of the brand new Netflix series, “How to become a Tyrant.” It’s not an indepth look at different regimes, but if you had to take a test on any of them, it would be a decent Cliff Notes on each of the dictators it focused on. It’s narrated by Peter Dinklage who did a really good job with it. If you’re a history buff, you will have already read about most of this, but there were still a few things that were new to me, like Walter Duranty. Who that? Walter Duranty was the Moscow bureau chief for The New York Times from 1922 to 1936. He idolized Joseph Stalin, who gave him exclusive interviews and tours of how there was no famine in Ukraine…which Duranty proceeded to write about, basically echoing Stalin’s propaganda. For this, Duranty won the Pulitzer Prize. You also learn that Kim Jong Il invented the cheeseburger. Did you know Kim Jong Il invented the cheeseburger? They do in North Korea where they can’t even get cheeseburgers. When you watch “How to become a Tyrant,” you see so many tactics that were and still are being used by Donald Trump. While the series mentions several dictators, it’s focus is on the North Korea family dynasty, Gadhafi, Saddam Hussien, Stalin, Idi Amin, and Hitler, who we heard this week had been praised by Donald Trump. The one person the series never mentions is Donald Trump. It was six episodes. They should have made it seven.

The one person the series never mentions is Donald Trump. It was six episodes. They should have made it seven.

To be a successful dictator, you need to be a narcissist. You also need to build a cult of personality around yourself, which you cannot do if you’re not a narcissist. You need to proclaim, “Only I can fix it.” Other tactics include attacking a free press, facts, elections, and science. North Korea claims the Kims are such perfect specimens, they don’t poop. Stalin suppressed scientific research and placed folklore beliefs over genetics. Donald Trump told us a pandemic wasn’t happening and we should all take hydroxychloroquine and bleach.

Most importantly, you need to make you and your people the underdogs who have been persecuted. You need a common enemy to blame all your woes upon. Does any of this sound familiar?

Idi Amin blamed the British, and he had a point. Then, he blamed Indians. When he had kicked them all out of the nation, he needed a new foil. He picked the nation of Zaire and he invaded their country…which backfired big time. America is a great foil which was used by Idi Amin, North Korea, Gadhafi and Saddam…who also blamed Jews. Hitler blamed people in his own nation for selling them out with the Treaty of Versailles…and Jews. Stalin was a big fan of describing anyone who criticized him, such as religious leaders, as the “enemy of the people.” Does that sound familiar? Donald Trump began his presidential campaign with attacking Mexicans. “They don’t send us their best. They send rapists and murderers,” is something I can hear being said by Idi Amin, Saddam Hussein, Hitler, Gadhafi, and so many others.

The biggest thing you need to be a dictator is hate. When you follow a dictator, he justifies your hate, tells you it’s OK to hate, and you have permission to publicly reveal your hatred. Before Trump, we didn’t have Nazis parading through our cities.

With the cult of personality, the cult leader tells his people they can’t trust anyone but him…and then they believe him.

My friend, Gordon, called me a few days ago and said, “Hey, let’s get cheeseburgers.” Sounded good to me, so I went to meet him outside my apartment building, where there is a restaurant. Sitting on the patio of the restaurant while I was waiting on Gordon were three older people. The traffic made hearing most of their conservation difficult, but I heard the old man say, “I don’t trust anyone except Donald Trump.” How dare that fucker say that right outside of my home. You’ll be glad to know I let it go and didn’t walk over there and rub my liberal cooties all over him while shoving his face into his huevo rancheros. Oh, yeah. It’s a Mexican restaurant. Go figure.

That MAGAt probably believes Donald Trump won the election. He believes it because Donald Trump told him so. If you believe Donald Trump won the election, congratulations. You are in a cult. But, if you follow Trump, we already know you’re in a cult. We’ve known it for a long time.

The Trump cult describes its critics as “Never Trumpers” and anyone who isn’t a Trumper is the enemy. To be a Never Trumper is a sin. Donald Trump has supported claims he was sent by God. If that is true, then we are NOT God’s favorite country.

Do you think that cheeseburger claim by the North Koreans is ridiculous? It is but it’s no more ridiculous than believing Donald Trump won the election. It’s no more ridiculous than saying, “I only believe Donald Trump.” Donald Trump did everything he could to become a fascist dictator. He failed and he was only a fascist president (sic).

Donald Trump claimed an election he lost was rigged. He claims he won. He called state officials and told them to “find the votes.” Then, he ordered his followers, like brown shirts, to attack the Capitol and stop the Constitutionally-mandated certification of the election.

Now, there’s a report that Trump praised Hitler and had to be told by his then-chief-of-staff, John Kelly, not to do so in public. It’s pretty bad when racist John Kelly tells you not to praise Hitler. Trump denies this but keep in mind, he once held a rally where he told his supporters to raise their right hands and pledge their loyalty to him.

He also praised Putin and said he was a better leader than President Obama. He excused Putin’s murder of dissidents. He took Putin’s word over his own U.S. intelligence when the Russian dictator said he didn’t meddle in our election.

Trump praised Philippines president Rodrigo Duterte for being “tough on crime,” which often entailed dragging suspected drug dealers into the streets to be shot in the head. Duterte claims he has personally done this.

Trump praised Turkey’s Recep Erdogan after he basically made himself president for life and threw judges into prison. He also praised China’s Xi Jinping after he was made president for life and told him he was a “king.”

Trump tweeted Mussolini, praised Saddam for killing terrorists, and said Libya would be much better off if Gadhafi was still in charge. He said Egypt’s El-Sisi was his “favorite dictator.”

Don’t forget, Trump told Proud Boys, a white nationalist hate group, to “stand back and stand by,” on national television shortly before the election, and also said there were “fine people” on both sides in Charlottesville. Donald Trump believes “fine people” march with Nazis chanting, “Jews will not replace us.” Just in case you’re a Trump supporter, let me make two things clear to you: Trump lost the election and fine people don’t march with Nazis. I don’t care if you love Confederate statues, you don’t march with Nazis. The benefit could be a Toys for blind deaf kids with cleft palates, you still don’t march with Nazis. I don’t care if it’s free taco night with Nazis, you don’t eat tacos with Nazis.

Watch “How to become a Tyrant” and you’ll see it contains everything Donald Trump tried to implement. It’s full of tactics Donald Trump used and praised. Did Donald Trump praise Hitler? I believe it because it wouldn’t be the first time he praised a Nazi.

Why is it so hard to believe Donald Trump praised a Nazi when he is a Nazi?

Convict Hate


cjones01292021

During his inauguration speech, President Joe Biden said, “White supremacists say ‘what.'” Then, Kentucky senator Rand Paul said, “What?”.

A lot of people say “what” whenever Rand Paul speaks, like last Sunday when he went on George Stephanopoulos’ show and tried to make the case that the opinions of stupid Republicans should override hard facts when it comes to their election fraud lie. “Election integrity” keeps being repeated by people who have no integrity.

During his speech, Biden described how there were “lies told for power and for profit,” and that everyone had a duty “to defend the truth and defeat the lies.” He said, “We must reject the culture in which facts themselves are manipulated and even manufactured.” Do you know who doesn’t like that kind of talk? Liars. Enter Rand Paul.

Rand Paul went on Fox News and expressed his faux outrage over the speech saying, “Much of it is thinly veiled innuendo calling us white supremacists, calling us racists, calling us every name in the book, calling us people who don’t tell the truth.” I’m starting to get why people physically attack Rand Paul and beat his ass until the homeowner’s association arrives to pull them off him.

It’s like, “Excuse me, Senator Paul, but you’re standing on my foot.” And Rand Paul, instead of getting off your foot, screams, “Did you just call me a Nazi?”

Well, we weren’t.

A lot of this criticism toward Biden is because there’s nothing to criticize yet. Nothing real anyway. Have you seen the memes going around complaining that Jill Biden had the gall to wear teal at the 2021 inauguration AFTER Melania Trump wore the same color to the 2017 inauguration? Girl, you know that Melania and Republicans own teal now.

There have even been Republicans complaining about the Bidens bringing dogs into the White House and that they must hate cats…ignoring that the only pet Donald Trump had in the White House was Lindsey Graham and that the Bidens are also bringing in a cat. Now, if Biden forces us to watch the movie, “Cats,” then you have something to complain about.

You know what? Joe Biden has been president for nearly a week and he’s yet to unite the country despite his attempt to bridge the divide between dog people and cat people. We should throw him out now and reinstall Donald Trump, which a lot of Qanon cultists believe will happen in March.

And according to Rand Paul and many other Republicans, Joe Biden can’t unite the country if the Senate convicts Donald Trump in the impeachment trial and bans him from future office. Senator Marco Rubio, who has never been lauded for being an intelligent person, said the Senate trial is “stupid” and argued, “We already have a flaming fire in this country, and it’s like taking a bunch of gasoline and pouring it on top of the fire.” Marco admitted that Donald Trump is responsible for the MAGA terrorist attack on the Capitol but that we should just let Trump go. Does that make any sense? Keep in mind, Marco is from Florida.

Republicans are arguing we can’t unite the country if we convict Donald Trump and ban him from ever running for president ever again. They’re afraid we might offend racists.

The people who attacked the Capitol were instigated by Donald Trump. He spent nearly $3 million to rally terrorists and tell them to march to the Capitol. And do you know who says Donald Trump sent terrorists to attack the Capitol and stop a Constitutionally-mandated duty, disenfranchise millions of Americans, and stage a bloody coup attempt? The terrorists say that. Well, their lawyers are making that argument.

Every terrorist that has been arrested since the attack has made the defense that Donald Trump told them to do it. It’s the “my client’s guilty but he’s stupid” defense. It’s not a good defense for them and it’s not good for Donald Trump, who has a lot of experience with being stupid and guilty. Do you know who those terrorists are? They’re white nationalists.

If you’re still celebrating January 6 as some sort of MAGA holiday, you share it with racists. They’re making it a special day too, and they should own it. The mob that attacked the Capitol had a huge racist component to it. Mixed in with the mob were Proud Boys, Oath Keepers, the Groyper Army (not to be confuse with Trump’s Groper Army), Boogaloo Bois, Last Sons of Liberty, and DC Under Siege. Also in the mob were former members of defunct racist groups, like Anticom, the Rise Above movement, and fuckers carrying Confederate flags, and at least one asshole in a “Camp Auschwitz” T-shirt. I could be mistaken. Maybe it was a sweater.

You see that list of hate groups and it’ll be easier to sum it up by simply saying, “Nazis.” There were Nazis attacking the Capitol. Republicans are arguing that we can’t offend Nazis because if we do, then we can’t unite with Nazis.

Fuck Nazis. I don’t care if I offend them because I don’t want to unite with them. Unite with Nazis? No thank you. I don’t need their votes. I don’t need their support for any initiative or policy I want advanced. I don’t need their understanding and I don’t need to try to reason with Nazis. I don’t need them to read my cartoons. I don’t need them to buy my books or apparel. I don’t need them to click “like” on my Facebook posts. I don’t want to sing Kumbaya with Nazis.

So, convict Donald Trump. He instigated an act of terrorism from hate groups. He tried to overthrow the government. He tried to overturn an election. He obstructed Congress while it was doing an act mandated by the United States Constitution. Donald Trump is a criminal and a national security threat. Donald Trump attempted to become a fascist dictator of the United States. Convict him, ban him from running for office ever again, and then try him on sedition in federal courts. Then, throw his orange ass in prison. If that pisses off Nazis, then fuck Nazis.

And while we’re at it, fuck the Proud Boys, fuck the Oath Keepers, fuck the Groyper Army, fuck the Boogaloo Bois, fuck the Last Sons of Liberty, fuck DC Under Siege, fuck Republicans who are afraid of offending Nazis, fuck the KKK, fuck those fuckers who attacked the Capitol, fuck the guy carrying the Confederate flag through the Capitol, fuck that fucker in the Camp Auschwitz T-shirt, fuck white nationalists, fuck terrorists, and fuck Donald Trump. And if you’re afraid of offending Nazis and want to unite with them, then fuck you too.

And now, I’m all out of fucks to give.

You Ain’t Black


cjones05282020

Over this weekend, pro-Trump goons and sycophants left comments underneath my cartoons demanding that I draw on Joe Biden’s gaffe where he said, “You Ain’t black.”

Apparently, some people think my cartoons are supposed to give equal time. Wrong. They think a cartoonist is not supposed to be biased. Wrong. They think a cartoon is supposed to be fair. Super duper wrong. I’m a liberal cartoonist. I hit the targets I believe deserve it and are a threat to the nation, which tend to be Republicans. Occasionally, that does mean I hit a Democrat. I am fiercely independent. I will never be a member of any party or campaign for a candidate. But, I will work to defeat a racist, stupid, dumbass TV reality host that shouldn’t be allowed on the White House tour, less enough living in the place.

Also, this isn’t open mic night where I take requests. Even the people who put money in my tip jar can’t demand I draw a specific cartoon. And I seriously doubt any of the right-wing goons have put anything in my tip jar other than poo and used condoms (I have to hose that thing a lot). But, there are times someone makes a good suggestion for a topic and I will hit it. But be careful what you wish for because you might get exactly what you deserve. So today’s cartoon is dedicated to every fucknut pro-Trump racist who told me to draw on Biden’s gaffe. Here’s to you, hypocrites.

Joe Biden made a huge gaffe. Even as they cringe, nobody is really surprised. Joe Biden says stupid shit. It’s what Joe Biden does. Biden was being interviewed by Charlamagne Tha God last Friday when the host said he might still have more “questions” for the Democratic nominee before election day. Biden replied, “You’ve got more questions? Well, I tell you what, if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.” Ouch. Yikes. Eeks. No, Joe. No.

One of the many differences between Joe Biden and Donald Trump is that Biden can recognize when he said something stupid and instead of doubling-down, he’ll issue an apology. That’s something that goes against everything Donald Trump stands for. Joe Biden admonished himself for being “so cavalier” and said, “No one should have to vote for any party based on their race or religion or background.” Donald Trump still hasn’t apologized for defending tiki-torch Nazis or saying black women in America should go back to where they came from with his “send them back” comments. Nope. He doubled-down on that shit and led “send them back” chants at his hate rallies.

After Biden’s gaffe, the Trump campaign started selling T-Shirts with the hashtag “#youain’tblack” on them with Biden’s name underneath. I read somewhere they even created a website but I haven’t looked for it yet because one time, I went to David Duke’s website and I was in the shower for a week with a brillo pad trying to scrub it off me.

All profits from Trump’s hate shirts will go directly to re-electing Donald Trump and to the Trump Organization for campaign expenses.

But, campaigning for Donald Trump on the message that Joe Biden is a racist is like campaigning on the message Joe Biden gropes women. Really? Are they actually that obtuse, ignorant, and hypocritical in Trumpistan? Why, yes. Yes, they are.

The conservative media, like Fox News, went after the mainstream media for not covering it enough. But in the media’s defense, Donald Trump changed the subject.

Shortly after Biden’s remarks, instead of coasting on them and taking the weekend off, Donald Trump had to say something stupid. Something with even more potential for damage than “you ain’t black.” Donald Trump told his supporters to go to church and demanded the nation’s governors to reopen every church in the nation. Donald Trump advocated for worsening this health crisis.

And, instead of going to church himself on Sunday, like he advocated for the rest of the nation, Donald Trump’s morbidly-obese ass was on a golf course. Of course, it was a Trump golf course so he got to charge the Secret Service for golf cart rentals. Donald Trump admonished President Obama for golfing during the Ebola crisis…which killed two people in this country. Donald Trump golfed during the coronavirus crisis which has killed nearly 100,000 people. But, conservatives will focus on “you ain’t black.”

While his campaign was creating T-shirts, websites, and screaming about “you ain’t black,” and his followers were in church, Donald Trump was golfing tweeted a conspiracy theory about MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough being in a murder scandal, retweeted insults about Nancy Pelosi’s teeth, Stacey Abram’s weight, and one that called Hillary Clinton a “skank.” But “you ain’t black’ gets all the conservative outrage.

Nikki Haley tweeted, “I have struggled with Biden’s recent remarks. They were gut wrenchingly condescending.” So far, she hasn’t “struggled” with Donald Trump’s “gun-wrenchingly condescending remark calling a woman a “skank.”

I saw a headline over a column in The New York Post saying Biden will lose the black vote. I didn’t click the link because I’m out of brillo pads, but Biden is NOT going to lose the black vote.

Joe Biden is NOT a racist. Joe Biden’s biggest offense is that he is taking the black vote for granted. His greatest danger is not generating enthusiasm. That’s not just a problem with black voters. That’s an issue with all voters. And don’t restart you’re crying about Bernie again. This wouldn’t have happened with Bernie? This wouldn’t have happened with my choice either, Kamala Harris. But hey, maybe this gaffe will move Biden to select a vice-presidential candidate like Harris instead of going the safe route with someone like Amy Klobuchar who would appeal to white moderate voters but do little for the black vote. Joe, don’t pick one of the whitest women from one of the whitest states. Please.

Biden will not lose the black vote but his greatest danger is that it will be diminished over comments like, “You ain’t black.” Our greatest danger from that is the re-election of racist Donald Trump who said “Very fine people” marched with Nazis and “Send them back.”

New Book: Tales From the Trumpster Fire

Anti-Greta


cjones03092020

Climate activist Greta Thunberg from Sweden is only 17 years old. That has not stopped conservatives from attacking her. They are attacking and bullying a child for saying something they don’t want to hear. Even the president (sic) of the United States has engaged in bullying her. She’s a child. Now get this: An energy company distributed a sexually graphic image of Greta.

X Site Energy Services from Alberta, Canada initially claimed they were not responsible for the image of a child being sexually attacked. But after it was reported that an employee of the company was handing out the image on stickers, they’ve accepted full responsibility and have apologized. In a statement, the company says, “Oh my God! Who knew that depicting a child being sexually assaulted could burn us? We totally lost our minds in this new era were being cruel and acting like depraved, troglodyte assholes amount to humor and is the new thing for conservatives and climate denialists. Maybe in this era of Trumpism, we got carried away. Also, sorry we lied about it too. Our bad. We’ll try to stop being dicks.”

OK. I made that up. That’s what their statement should have said. It actually said that it’s “committed to recovering and destroying the decals we distributed.” Note that “we” in there. The statement added, “Management (dicks) accepts full responsibility and effective immediately, has made organizational changes to reflect this.” Now, the company is discussing a code of conduct with its employees as it seeks to maintain a “safe and respectful workplace.”

Here’s a free tip for oil companies: If you have to educate your employees that distributing child pornography, with or without your company’s logo on it, is bad, then you’re probably fishing in the wrong talent pool.

Greta visited Alberta last year and Edmonton-based artist Aja Louden painted a mural of her on a wall…which was later defaced with a slur and a pro-oil message.

At least the right-wing, oil-company funded think tank, Heartland Institute, didn’t resort to child porn to attack Great. Nope. They went out and got their own Greta. She’s the anti-Greta.

Her name is Naomi Seibt and she’s from Germany, where people used to goose-step (this is about to come up again, so pay attention). Naomi isn’t just on the same side as the Heartland Institute. She’s being paid by them. The heavy thinkers at Heartland have always been anti-science because they’re a financial tool for fossil fuel companies. Think tanks are businesses set up where billionaires and companies hire them to write their dogma, thus giving the appearance it’s coming from elsewhere and has credibility (and nobody hires me to write anything). Heartland hired Naomi to produce YouTube videos and to be the anti-Greta. It’s not my viewpoint they market her as the anti-Greta. They literally describe her as the anti-Greta.

Naomi is 19 and she said her interest in activism began out of concern about a wave of migration into Germany in recent years (people who aren’t white and Christian). This may come as a big surprise to you but Naomi is white. Last weekend (this will be less of a surprise) she was speaking as CPAC (Conservative Political Asshole Committee) where the Heartland Institute sponsors a bunch of anti-science shit and Donald Trump speaks. At this asshole event, she praised a white nationalist (Nazi).

She praised Canadian alt-right commentator Stefan Molyneux and said his prior racist comments have been taken out of context.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, which monitors hate groups, says Molyneux “amplifies ‘scientific racism,’ eugenics and white supremacism,” has hundreds of thousands of YouTube followers, and “has encouraged thousands of people to adopt his belief in biological determinism, social Darwinism and non-white racial inferiority.” Basically, he’s a Nazi.

I’m kinda getting tired of all these descriptions. Alt-right, white nationalist, Trump supporter, Donald Trump…let’s just call them all Nazis.

Seibt said Molyneux is an “inspiration” for her work. When asked at the conference by a reporter if that still holds true, she said, “I’ve always been skeptical of the ideas of white nationalism, of identitarianism and white identity. However, I am an empiricist, and I could not help but notice that I could have peaceful, free, easy, civilized, and safe discussions in what is essentially an all-white country.” She may as well have started her sentence, “I don’t mean to sound like a racist but…”

She said, “I am still a fan, absolutely.”

Did the Heartland Institute hire a Nazi to be their anti-Greta? Absolutely.

I’m starting to think that Naomi’s concern for immigrants entering her nation doesn’t have anything to do with economics, the climate, or science. She describes herself as an “empiricist,” which is that you can’t have knowledge without experience. That probably means she had a run-in with a brown person that freaked her out (like one cut in line at a movie and she was all like, “Oh, my God, they’re everywhere. They probably have cousins!”). The knowledge I’ve gained from my experience (and I have a few years of that stuff on Naomi) is that nations and societies are richer and much better off with diversity of cultures. I believe in melting pots and I know it’s the greatest strength and asset of our nation.

Seriously, Heartland? You couldn’t find an anti-Greta who’s not a Nazi? Germany is a very progressive nation now and while their alt-right, anti-immigrant movement (Nazis) is loud, they’re small. Yet, somehow, you found a Nazi in present-day Germany. Now, before the CPAC thing is over, you may want to let Naomi go before she goosesteps all over the place…unless you plan to goosestep with her.

Heartland knows that to confront science, then you have to lie. You have to lie a lot. They’ve been doing it for years. In fact, it’s their business model. They’re comfortable with being liars. The question is, are you comfortable with being racist? Actually, it’s probably not your first time.

To sum up, don’t hire people who will distribute child porn with your company’s logo on it (and maybe not any child porn. A conservative might be reading and that should probably be clear). Also, pay attention, Heartland…

…DON’T HIRE NAZIS!

I Did NAZI That Spoiler Coming


cjones05032019

It’s bad enough that the internet is full of Russian trolls and idiots spreading conspiracy theories, but there are also people not just spreading hate, but motivating terrorism.

The white nationalist terrorists in Christchurch and Poway, California were frequent visitors to the online image board 8chan where they also shared their manifestos of hate.

I always thought it was terrible that conservative propaganda sites that pretend to be news like Breitbart and the Daily Callers are magnets for racists, conspiracy theorists, and just all-around stupid right-wing idiots.

8chan started after 4chan (another racist site) started cracking down on Gamergaters and child porn distributors. The board offers encouragement and cheerleading to white terrorists and graphically lionizes those who make good on their threats. The Poway synagogue shooter claimed he had been radicalized by 8chan in just 18 months. And the most dangerous thing you’ve had to avoid over the past week has been Avengers and Game of Throne spoilers. Me too.

The last time I saw a “hot” movie and posted about it, within minutes someone posted a spoiler in the comments. So, I don’t tell people on social media when I’ve seen a recently released movie (though I did see Avengers: Endgame Sunday night) because I don’t want people using me to drop spoilers. And, some people who drop spoilers don’t even realize they’re dropping a spoiler. But, ever since I stumbled upon the Force Awakens spoiler before I saw the film, any time I even see the title of something I don’t want spoiled, I keep scrolling as fast as I can without reading the rest of the sentence.

To steal my favorite quote from the TV show Scrubs, “People are bastard covered bastards with a bastard creme filling.”

But, at some point, you gotta go see the movie because you can’t expect people to sit on it forever. If you don’t know Bruce Willis has been dead all along in Sixth Sense, then that’s your own stupid fault. But, I do feel bad for when Willis eventually dies (hopefully, a very long time from now) because when someone posts a link to his obituary, someone’s going to think it’s a spoiler.

NOT a spoiler alert: I’m going out of town Thursday so you may not get a cartoon from me this Friday. So, you’re getting two today. But, it’s like leaving two bowls of dog food for the dog (hopefully, for the dog), he’s going to eat both immediately. So come Friday, you’ll probably still be waiting for a new cartoon. I’ve spoiled you.

Nazis Yay, Gays Nay


cjones05022019

“Woe unto you hypocrites,” Jesus said to the religious leaders of his day. In 2019, his message is for the likes of Franklin Graham, a religious right phony who sees sin in Democrats and not Republicans.

Just like Donald Trump, Franklin Graham inherited his empire from his daddy. He has since used his religious podium to endorse the 2003 invasion of Iraq, refer to Islam as “a very evil and wicked religion,” accuse President Obama of allowing the Muslim Brotherhood to become a part of the U.S. government (seriously), and in 2016, conduct a $10 million campaign that framed support for Hillary Clinton and other Democrats as anti-Christian. And then, he endorsed the porn-star presidential candidate.

Graham preaches a good game but he’s never preached against Trump being a false idol, being worshipped by his followers, or building monuments to himself. Graham has never preached about Trump cheating on his first wife, or his second, or his third. He’s never preached against Trump’s infidelities with porn stars and Playmates. He’s never preached against Trump’s attacks against women. He’s never preached against Trump lusting after his own daughter. And, Graham has never preached against Trump’s lies.

With The Washington Post now confirming that Trump has passed the 10,000 lies mark, Graham says Trump merely misspeaks and never has intentions to be dishonest.

Graham has no problems with Trump being a racist, bully, misogynist, braggart, or a guy who proudly boasts of sexually assaulting women and barging into dressing rooms to see teenage girls while they’re naked.

Graham backed Trump’s Muslim ban and says God had a hand in his election.

Graham believes Melania Trump is the “classiest First Lady in American history.” Apparently, running an anti-bullying campaign while ignoring her husband’s bullying is classy. plagiarizing her predecessor’s speeches is classy. Marrying a guy solely because he’s rich is classy. Doing nude lesbian porn must be classy as hell in Graham’s eyes.

And back to Donald, Graham has never preached against defending Nazis. And let’s get this straight right now: Donald Trump defended Nazis.

There’s this campaign that Trump was talking about the “fine people” who were merely at Charlottesville to protest the removal of Confederate statues. Yes, fine people who demanded that statues honoring slave-owning traitors to the United States must remain in place. Trump supporters tell us to look at the context of his words when he said there were “fine people on both sides.” OK. Let’s look at his words.

In defending his statement afterward, he said, “As I said on — remember, Saturday — we condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence. It has no place in America.” He also called the murderer of Heather Heyer a “murderer.” Kudos, Trump. But then, he flipped it back to defending the “Blood and Soil” tiki-torch guys.

When asked about the “alt-right,” Trump deflected criticism of them and attacked the counter-protesters with, “Okay, what about the alt-left that came charging at — excuse me, what about the alt-left that came charging at the, as you say, the alt-right? Do they have any semblance of guilt?”

He continued with, “What about the fact that they came charging with clubs in their hands, swinging clubs?” Trump’s primary criticisms remained on the left when he brought up permits to protest. He said, “you had a group on the other side that came charging in, without a permit, and they were very, very violent.”

OK. So he’s defending the guys with permits. Who got that permit? Jason Kessler got that permit. Mr. Kessler is a white supremacist and a supporter of Neo-Nazis. In defending the guys with permits, Trump defended Nazis.

In defending the people who were protesting the removal of statues, Trump said there were “fine people on both sides.” Who was on the side with the statue dudes? Who was in Charlottesville that day?

Here’s a partial list. The Daily Stormer Book Club, The National Front, The Right Stuff, The National Policy Institute, the neo-Confederate League of the South, Traditionalist Worker Party (Nazis), Vanguard America, National Socialist Movement (they’re Nazis, not AOC fans), the Ku Klux Klan, the Fraternal Order of Alt-Knights, Identity Evropa (more Nazis), Rise Above Movement, the American Guard, the Detroit Right Wings (Nazis stealing their name from Detroit’s hockey team), True Cascadia, Alt-Right Montreal (Canadian Nazis), Hammer Brothers, Anti-Communist Action (more Nazis), David Duke (former Grand Wizard and Nazi lover), and Richard Spencer (Nazi). These are all hate groups. You can decide how “fine” a person is who chooses to march with these people.

Airbnb refused to rent to these people because they’re not “fine.” You can’t blame Airbnb, because they’re Nazis and they’ll steal all the white sheets and pillow cases and cut eye holes in them. But, Trump disagrees with Airbnb and thinks they’re fine people.

Personally, I’m against kicking puppies. But, if I see a bunch of Nazis with tiki torches walking down the street chanting, “Stop kicking puppies and Jews will not replace us,” I’m not going to join in. I can be against kicking puppies and still not march with Nazis. You don’t have to join Nazis to oppose statue removal. When you walk with Nazis, you may as well be a Nazi.

Donald Trump defended Nazis. Nazis! Nazis! Nazis! Deflecting for Nazis is the same as defending them. And defending Nazis is not something Franklin Graham has a problem with. But maybe, he’d hate gay Nazis.

Graham has a huge issue with gay people. He’s a champion of gay-conversion therapy, just like Mike Pence. He praised Vladimir Putin for Russia’s “gay propaganda law,” which bans anything that makes homosexuality appear acceptable. And last week, he went after South Bend, Indiana mayor and first opening gay Democratic presidential candidate for being gay and married.

Graham tweeted, “”Mayor Buttigieg says he’s a gay Christian. As a Christian I believe the Bible which defines homosexuality as sin, something to be repentant of, not something to be flaunted, praised or politicized. The Bible says marriage is between a man & a woman—not two men, not two women.”

Actually, the Bible doesn’t say homosexuality is a sin. It talks about behavior but doesn’t reference being gay. It talks a lot about a man being with a woman and becoming one, but it doesn’t mention marriage. Don’t believe me? Look it up. I’m no Bible preacher so you’d think a Jesus freak like Graham would have a better grasp of the Bible than an agnostic political cartoonist (I did spend a year at a Baptist private school in Georgia. Hallelujah!).

Graham has never asked Trump to repent that I know of. While worried that Buttigieg is flaunting and politicizing his sexual orientation, he doesn’t have a problem with anything Trump flaunts.

Graham is a hypocrite and quite frankly, his relationship with Trump is unnatural and it kinda freaks me out.

Nazis Are Bad


cjones09152018

Last week during President Obama’s speech in Illinois, I tweeted, “There’s a black guy speaking on TV with total clarity and coherence. What the hell is this shit?” It received a lot of responses from people who miss a president who is eloquent, dignified, doesn’t engage in temper tantrums and childish insults, and can speak in complete sentences. The ability to enunciate probably threw quite a few people off.

Obama took several swipes at Trump’s presidency and asked at one point, “how hard can that be, saying Nazis are bad?”

Trump responded, but not by saying “Nazis are bad.” In fact, according to Bob Woodward’s book, Fear, when Trump finally did make a statement criticizing white supremacists after his speech praising Nazis, he said to then-staff secretary Rob Porter, “That was the biggest f—ing mistake I’ve made. You never make those concessions. You never apologize. I didn’t do anything wrong in the first place. Why look weak? I can’t believe I got forced to do that. That’s the worst speech I’ve ever given. I’m never going to do anything like that again.”

That example may be the biggest difference between Obama and Trump. Obama can say “Nazis are bad.” Trump praises them and later says he didn’t do anything wrong.

Trump claimed he fell asleep during Obama’s speech, which is something he probably does during security briefings. But, the old man who has trouble staying awake if it’s not Fox News must have caught some of it. He was visibly upset over Obama pointing out that this economic recovery began under his watch.

Trump tweeted, “‘President Trump would need a magic wand to get to 4% GDP,’ stated President Obama. I guess I have a magic wand, 4.2%, and we will do MUCH better than this! We have just begun.” Only problem is, Obama never said that.

He also tweeted, “If the Democrats had won the Election in 2016, GDP, which was about 1% and going down, would have been minus 4% instead of up 4.2%.” That is another lie. In fact, the GDP had risen higher under Obama than it ever has under Trump.

Trump retweeted former Congressman Jason Chaffetz who said, “Barack Obama talked a lot about hope, but Donald Trump delivered the American Dream. All the economic indicators, what’s happening overseas, Donald Trump has proven to be far more successful than Barack Obama. President Trump is delivering the American Dream.” Of course, there’s no substance to that and it’s all just Trump booty kissing. Chaffetz, if you recall, said he wouldn’t be able to look his 15-year-old daughter in the eye and explain why he supported Trump after the Access Hollywood tape came out. Nineteen days later, he endorsed Trump. Hopefully, for Chaffetz, he’s as good at gaslighting his daughter as Trump is with his supporters.

What Republicans conveniently forget is that they gave us a recession. It may have been the worst since the Great Depression. They also forget that Obama pulled us out of it with them fighting every measure he implemented to improve the economy. Today, they claim how horrible Obama was for the economy while giving Trump credit for the job he did.

Isn’t that just like Republicans? A black guy does a great job, and they give the credit to an old white dude. I always ask Trump supporters, if Obama was so bad then why are you taking all the credit for the job he did? They, being gaslighted, are convinced the economic recovery began January 21, 2017.

Republicans are just as bad with facts as they are at saying “Nazis are bad.” But then again, it’s hard to admit when you’re bad.

Costa Rica Nazis


crsta08242018

This cartoon was first published August 24, 2018, in The Costa Rica Star.

There were several protests in Costa Rica by white nationalists and even a few Neo-Nazis protesting against refugees coming to their country to escape the violence in Nicaragua. Most people in Costa Rica are welcoming the refugees and trying to help them. They know they don’t want to be there sleeping in a park permanently. Most people want to go home.

Donald Trump’s rhetoric has encouraged racists to come out into the open in the United States. Now, I believe it’s happening internationally.

Donald Trump is a vile and horrible person. Don’t be like Trump.

Fascists In Florida


cjones10232017

What kind of nation have we become that now when we hear George W. Bush speak, we think, how enlightening and refreshing it is. It has become the kind of nation where the current president calls black athletes protesting racism “sons of bitches” and folks marching among Nazis “good people.”

When Bush spoke last Thursday, what he said was what our current president is incapable of saying…or even thinking. It would disenfranchise his base, plus he’s not smart enough.

During his speech, Bush said, “we’ve seen nationalism distorted into nativism, forgotten the dynamism that immigration has always brought to America,” and “bigotry and white supremacy is blasphemy on the American creed.”

On the same day, while campaigning in New Jersey and Virginia Obama said, “bigotry seems emboldened. Our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication.”

Two former presidents, one Republican and one Democrat, neither would agree on much of anything, except that Donald Trump is bad for America. Donald Trump is blasphemy on the American creed.

Neither president named Trump, but they weren’t talking about your crazy uncle who keeps sharing racist memes and conspiracy theories about uranium deals on Facebook. White House Press Goon Sarah Huckabee Sanders said neither president was talking about Trump because they didn’t mention his name. If you had any doubt the White House is full of stupid people, that should take care of it right there.

One person who isn’t as dense as Sanders on the subject is Steve Bannon. He was furious with Bush. How dare he attack racism and white nationalism. He attacked Bush for reading a speech he didn’t understand and that was probably written by a speechwriter. Let’s forget for a moment that Bannon and his understudy in white nationalism, Stephen Miller has written speeches for Trump, that he can barely read off a teleprompter.

Bannon also said Bush was the “most destructive” president in U.S. history, which is something I would have agreed with before last January.

The racist and white nationalists have become more emboldened since the election of Trump. They were emboldened after the election of Obama, but back then they were more covert by hiding their true intentions under the Tea Party label.

The Tea Party shouted “I want my country back,” and claimed it was about Obama’s heavy spending. They ignored that Bush had wiped out the federal surplus. They held rallies with Alaskan dingbat Sarah Palin. Today, we have a president who is promising to spend more on the military, a useless border wall, and a tax cut for the rich that will hike taxes on everyone else and increase the deficit by $1.5 trillion over the next decade. He is also attacking the First Amendment, engaging in nepotism, and using the government to fund his businesses. How many Tea Party rallies have sprung up since he took office? How many of those same people have shouted “I want my country back” or expressed any concern over government spending? And, just how bad is Sarah Palin that she didn’t get an administration gig with the rest of the stupid people? They hired Ben Carson for fuck’s sake.

I guess it wasn’t about government debt after all. It was about a black guy becoming president. They were upset about a black man being elected president, but have no concern over a president who benefited from Russian meddling in our election, and continues to deny it ever happened. The people who claimed they wanted their country back gave it away. Do you see why I always say that conservatives don’t get irony?

One person who hates black presidents, black people in general, and is emboldened by the election of Donald Trump is Richard Spencer. Spencer is a white nationalist who once said he wants to “bathe in white privilege.” 

Spencer was a part of the Nazi-Tiki march in Charlottesville, and this past week he was allowed to speak at the University of Florida. After the violence and death in Charlottesville, the concern in Florida was so high that the Republican governor declared a state of emergency. The concern wasn’t unwarranted as three men who were making Nazi salutes and Hitler chants shot at protesters.

These Nazi fascists are emboldened. After Trump’s election, Spencer held a rally in Washington, D.C. and shouted, “Hail Trump! Hail our people! Hail victory!” Many in attendance threw up Nazi salutes. In the past, Spencer has said, “the ideal I advocate is the creation of a White Ethno-State on the North American continent.” He’s also stated, “when White men talk about ‘restoring the Constitution’—or, more so, ‘Taking Our Country Back’— leftists and non-Whites are right to view this as threatening and racialist: it implies a return to origins and that the White man once owned America.”

They are only going to get worse. When people asking for equality are “sons of bitches” and Nazis are “good people” in the eyes of the president, we need our elder statesmen to speak out.

It is extremely rare for former presidents to criticize the current president. But right now, remaining silent is criminal. It is dangerous to be silent and allow the white nationalists work to corrupt our democracy.

I want my country back. I also want our former presidents to fight for it with me. Next time, they need to say his name. Don’t let there be any confusion for the stupid people who work in the White House.

This cartoon is my way of punching Nazis in the face.
