Party Of Racists


cjones07212019

When the Access Hollywood tape came out, Jason Chaffetz who was then a representative from Utah, said he couldn’t support Trump because he’d have to explain it to his daughter. Shortly after, he supported Trump. I never did hear how he explained it to his daughter.

After Trump said a judge wasn’t qualified to preside over a lawsuit about his fake university, then-Speaker of the House Paul Ryan described his comments as “the textbook definition of a racist comment.” As soon as Trump was elected president, Ryan promptly crawled up Trump’s racist ass.

In 2015, South Carolina senator Lindsey Graham called Trump a “race-baiting, xenophobic religious bigot.” Yesterday, Graham accused the people describing Trump in a similar manner of “hating America.”

Today, very few Republicans are criticizing or even commenting on Trump’s racist comments toward four minority congresswomen. Some of those who have criticized Trump had to include criticism of his victims. Of those who criticized his comments, only a couple applied the word “racist” to them. Most Republicans who have commented are trying to help Trump frame women as the face of the “socialist” Democratic Party. In doing so, they’re making the GOP the racist party.

Elected Republicans are afraid of Trump because he’s more popular with Republicans than they are. This is their fault because they’ve nurtured a racist base for decades. Now, those racist chickens are coming home to roost. The GOP is less a party of ideas, policy, and principles and more a party of Trump. The most important thing to Trump voters is Trump. The Republican Party is now a cult.

Republicans need to look at Paul Ryan because that is their future. After they or Trump is out of office, they’ll criticize him and try to sell the idea they were the adults in the room preventing things from being even worse than they are. They’ll have to convince themselves that lie is true while their party is in embers and the confidence the world had in the United States is receding faster than Trump’s hairline.

The Republican Party used to be the party of Lincoln. Over the past few decades, it’s been described as the party of Reagan. Now, it’s the party of Trump. It’s the party of racists.

I’ve spent the past three years saying that not all Trump supporters are racists, but racism is not a dealbreaker for them. But now, there are no more wolf whistles. Racism is the deal.

Donald Trump isn’t just a stupid old man who says stupid things. He says stupid racist things and he knows what he’s saying. There is now walking around or deflecting the fact that the president of the United States, even one in office by a quirk in the system, is a racist. He’s even proud that racists agree with his racist comments and he said as much yesterday.

When a reporter asked Trump if it others him that racists agree with his comments, Trump said no because many people agree with his comments. That’s what the reporter said, you idiot. Many people are racists and they agree with you. See? He’s still a stupid old man who says stupid things, but he’s also a racist.

Trump may as well had dropped an N-bomb last weekend with his “go back where they came from” comments. There is no more quibbling over his racist comments. Trump’s racism isn’t just a part of the deal you accept to support him. Racism is the entire message and appeal of Trump. He has his base because he’s a racist.

Build the wall, Muslim ban, rapists, and murderers, shithole countries, birtherism, caravan invasions, family separations, baby jails, “fine people on both sides,” attacks on black athletes and black women, retweeting Nazi’s videos, and “go back where you came from” have only built his base within the Republican Party. Quite frankly, an N-bomb wouldn’t diminish his GOP support at all.

It used to be said, “Not all Republicans are racists, but all racists are Republicans.” Now, if all Republicans continue to support Donald Trump, then all Republican are racists.

Hating America


cjones07202019

Donald Trump hates America.

America is a nation of diversity. Campaigning on “make America great again,” Trump is longing for and promising to return this nation to the racist ways of the past, the America he loves. He hates that this is a nation of white, brown, black, yellow, etc, and so do his supporters.

When told today that white supremacists will love his message of “go back to where you came from,” Trump said he wasn’t worried because a lot of people agree with him. He is owning that he’s reaching out to the racists.

The sheer hypocrisy of saying those who criticize this nation and are not happy should leave will go over the heads of his cult. So will this cartoon.

If you’re not happy and think we should “make America great again,” then why don’t you just leave?

Go Back Where You Came From


cjones07192019

Perhaps the dumbest question in the Trump era is, what has Donald Trump said or done that proves he’s a racist? For Trump supporters, a racist isn’t a racist unless he’s burning a cross while wearing a hood and robe. Yet, if Donald Trump were to ignite a cross on the front lawn of the White House while wearing a sheet, they’d quibble that he was honoring southern heritage or some shit like that (Trump isn’t southern, but why let ignorance derail a stupid defense?).

Adding to the long list of answers to the dumbest question, yesterday, Trump tweeted an attack on four liberal minority congresswomen that they should “go back” to their countries.

In multiple tweets, Trump said, “So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

Trump is attacking Representatives Ayanna Pressley from Massachusetts, Rashida Tlaib from Michigan, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from New York, and Ilhan Omar from Minnesota. Only Omar was born outside the U.S. and became a citizen of this nation as a teenager. But, why let ignorance get in the way of a juicy racist tweet?

Speaker Nancy Pelosi called Trump’s words “xenophobic.” Over 90 Democrats joined her in denouncing Trump’s comments with many of them using the words “racist” or “racism” to describe his tweet. Michigan representative Justin Amash, who just left the GOP and became an independent joined them. Republicans are silent because they’re either racist, cowards, or both.

This morning, Trump demanded that liberals apologize to him. Can’t a president be racist without people calling it out? It’s like people accusing liberals of always seeing racism in Republicans’ actions and statements. The problem is, there is so much racism in Republicans’ actions and statements. Republicans are like Trump in that they’re not smart enough to disguise their racism. Here’s a tip: Stop using the “black friend” defense.

“Go back where you came from” is an old racist trope used against minorities. If you’re non-white in America, chances are, you’ve heard it directed at you. In saying this, Trump is once again throwing red meat to his cultish base and Fox News viewers, as his targets are also popular targets on that network. Trump also released the racist tweet on the day his ICE raids were supposed to start evicting brown people from the nation. Perhaps, the racist tweet was from his frustration that the raids have yet to begin.

The worst I and other white liberals get is “if you don’t like it here, leave.” As if you shouldn’t be allowed to stay if you criticize your nation or love it so much that you want to fight to improve it. This, from the “Make America Great Again” crowd. Their slogan literally says, “America is not great.” But, you’re the one who should leave if you want it to become more progressive.

Lindsey Graham attacked the four congresswomen and accused them of being communists, antiSemitic, hating Israel, and worst of all, hating America. And Republicans are the ones who say liberals are divisive. When they criticize the government or the state of this nation, they’re being patriotic and “making America great again.” When we criticize, we hate our country.”

America will be greater once Donald Trump is sent back from where he came from, either his shitty tower in New York or his shitty golf resort in Florida.

I’m sick of this argument. We need to stop quibbling and making excuses and call it for what it is. Donald Trump is a racist. He called Mexicans murderers and rapists, championed the birther movement, described nations where brown people come from as “shithole countries,” and defended Nazis. If it looks like a racist duck, quacks like a racist duck, and walks like a racist duck, you got a racist duck.

If you can’t see or hear Trump’s racism, then you’re a racist too.

No, Don’t Leave, Bye


CNN07142019

Here’s your weekly cartoon for CNN’s weekly newsletter, Provoke/Persuade. Please sign up to get these in your inbox every Sunday for the rest of your life.

Donald Trump claims labor secretary Alexander Acosta decided to resign, and he pushed for him to stay. If you believe that then you probably also believe Trump had the largest inauguration crowd, won the popular vote, millions of illegals voted, George Soros is funding caravan invasions, he never assaulted a woman, has the best words, his father was born in Germany, and accomplished more than any president before him (this is a very short list).

Trump has the habit of defending men who assault women (Roger Ailes, Bill O’Reilly, Roy Moore, Rob Porter, himself. Again, a short list), so he’s not going to have a problem with a prosecutor who cuts a sweetheart deal for one of them. But, if he thinks it’s going to reflect on him poorly, especially with an election coming up, buh-bye.

Trump demands loyalty while giving none.

Here’s the rough.

Don’t Mess Around With Jim


cjones07182019

Donald Trump, who only hires the “best people,” just lost his ninth cabinet member. Trump has had more turnover in his cabinet in the first two and a half years of his presidency than any of his five immediate predecessors did in their entire first terms.

News flash! Donald Trump does NOT hire the best people. He hires cronies, freaks, sycophants, goons, bums, right-wing zealots, white nationalists, fucknuts, shitweasels, and members of his family, which I know is redundant. Another reason he goes through so many people (other than wearing them out from Trump fuckery) is that he doesn’t vet properly. This is a guy who hired a wife beater for his staff. This is a guy who hired Omarosa, Steve Bannon, and Stephen Baby Goebbels Miller.

Trump’s labor secretary has been under fire ever since federal prosecutors in New York brought new charges of sex trafficking against Jeffery Epstein last week, who had received a sweetheart prosecution deal from Acosta years ago.

Acosta gave an extremely long press conference to defend his handling of the Epstein case. According to inside sources, Trump pushed Acosta to explain himself to the press and the American people. Acosta believed the performance helped save his job and word is Trump was very pleased with it as well…until he watched TV.

Acosta abruptly resigned Friday morning, citing his presence as a distraction for Trump and the “great” economy they claim they created. Trump claims it was Acosta’s idea to resign, but after watching critical coverage of the press conference, he began questioning whether he should keep the guy. Trump is that guy who asks if his pants make his ass look fat when it’s his fat ass making his ass look fat.

The impression is Trump affiliates with pedophiles, rapists, and creepers. You know, contemporaries.

Acosta is a distraction for Trump, but not one that hurts the image they want to present on the economy (the image is, Obama created that economy plus, he never hired wife beaters or endorsed pedophiles for elected office). Acosta’s presence is a reminder that Trump has ties to Epstein also…and he too has multiple accusations from women, two accusing him of rape. Donald Trump doesn’t care about justice, law and order, or the treatment of women. He’s more concerned with how it reflects on him, especially going into an election.

Trump has been looking to get an Acosta out of his life, but one who’s been a larger pain in his side than Alex…and who actually does his job. Donald Trump hates CNN’s Jim Acosta, who covers the White House.

Trump has personally attacked Jim Acosta for asking reasonable questions. He charged that he’s “a rude, terrible person,” “fake news” and that CNN should be ashamed for employing him. Trump even tried to “lift” his White House pass because he doesn’t like his questions.

When Trump and White House spokesgoon Sarah Huckabee Sanders attempted to ban Acosta from the White House, other news outlets, including Fox News, came to the reporter’s defense. A federal judge, who was appointed by Trump, ordered Acosta’s pass to be restored.

Acosta has a new book recounting his time covering the Trump White House, titled, The Enemy of the People: A Dangerous Time to Tell the Truth in America. Trump and his sycophants have made this a dangerous time to tell the truth, and that’s exactly how they want it.

In the book, Acosta describes a Trump supporter at a rally being surprised that he recited the pledge of allegiance and sang “The Star-Spangled Banner.” He was surprised because Trump has convinced his deplorables that the press is the “enemy of the American people.” It is a dangerous time to tell the truth in America.

Personally, I’m glad the right Acosta has quit his job. This nation doesn’t need Alexander, but it needs Jim to continue to hold Trump and his goon squad accountable.

And, if Jim Acosta ever does stop covering the White House, I’m sure Trump will hold a party. But, it won’t be nearly as big as the party we’re gonna have when he leaves the White House.

Trump’s Meat


cjones07172019

Donald Trump is using the citizenship question on the census and ICE raids to feed his shrinking political base. It’s another example of his not being president for all the people and using government resources for political means.

Trump caved on adding the citizenship question to the census after being knocked down by the Supreme Court, and another federal judge telling him he couldn’t change his legal team. Analysts were shocked that Trump caved, but he’s caved on multiple occasions, like during the government shutdown when he negotiated a deal where he got nothing.

Trump is now ordering other government agencies to compile citizenship data from existing federal records and to provide those results to the census. This won’t actually work, but it will give the perception to his base that he’s doing something about people who don’t look like them. This is a base that believes he’s actually building the wall and that Mexico will ultimately pay for it.

Trump and Republicans want to use the census for states to draw state, local, and congressional districts on the voting-eligible population. This will make an electorate that is more white and less diverse than the nation at large, whose majority is rejecting Republican policies. Republicans can’t win honestly anymore, so they’ll cheat and change the rules any way they can.

In selling this discrimination scheme, Republicans are lying. Sarah Huckabee Sanders claimed the citizenship question was asked until 2010, which is a lie. It hasn’t been a standard question since the 1950 census. Many of the Trump cult claim Obama removed it from the census, which of course is another lie unless, somehow he had it removed before the 1960 census shortly before his birth in Kenya in 1961. He was a busy baby.

The other detail is, the census has ALWAYS counted noncitizens starting with the first census in 1790. Congressional districts have always included noncitizens, even if those citizens were only recognized as 3/5ths of a person. This was a huge point of contention for non-slave states as it increased representation in southern states, and diminished theirs. Conservatives have always cheated to win elections and control the government. And yeah, as dumb as it sounds, slaves had congressional representation, even if they couldn’t vote and all their representatives wanted to keep them as slaves. I shouldn’t be giving Republicans any ideas.

Trump announced ICE raids in June, then postponed them. Now, he’s announced they’ll happen this Sunday, with ICE expected to pursue at least 2,000 immigrants.

In the past, Trump criticized the mayor of Oakland for announcing upcoming raids, calling her actions a “disgrace.” The acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement director at the time, Thomas Homan, said the mayor’s comments were “no better than a gang lookout yelling, ‘police!’ when a cruiser comes in the neighborhood.” A Republican congressman from Iowa proposed criminal penalties for officials who make similar disclosures. But, it’s OK when Trump or other Republicans do it.

Nobody would resist ICE raids if they were going after real criminals and not people whose only crime was crossing the border. What Trump is doing is ordering ICE to separate more families. Even families that aren’t targeted are under severe stress from this. This disrupts their work, school, and entire lives. That’s OK though because it makes a rabid base frothing at the mouth feel squishy inside.

This is just Trump being mean and hateful which is exactly what his base loves. They love child separation. They love discrimination. “Make America hate again” should be on the hat.

Hopefully, the red meat Trump tosses to his hateful base is the same as Trump steaks, non-existent and a total lie.

Perilous Times For Political Cartoonists


cjones07162019

NOTE: The price for signed prints of this cartoon is $100.00. That’s higher than the usual price because of the size, paper, and shipping. Thanks to everyone who’s expressed interest in purchasing a copy.

Donald Trump is hosting a “social media summit” today at the White House. This morning, he tweeted, “A big subject today at the White House Social Media Summit will be the tremendous dishonesty, bias, discrimination and suppression practiced by certain companies. We will not let them get away with it much longer. The Fake News Media will also be there, but for a limited period.”

So, Trump is having a tantrum over “bias” and “discrimination” but he’s only invited people who are extremely friendly to him and he’s going to shut out the press. Also, not invited are representatives from Facebook, Twitter, and Google. Conservatives don’t get irony or hypocrisy.

Trump and other conservatives claim their voices are suppressed on social media. Basically, they scream suppression whenever one of their racist posts, personal attacks, or lies are removed. This is a very popular conspiracy theory among those who believe they’re the most oppressed segment in today’s society. You know, white, Christian, male conservatives. The summit will be an airing of grievances for conservatives without the Festivus pole. The only pole they’ll be dancing around will be Trump’s.

Among those who will be present at today’s bullshit summit will be the conservative think tank Heritage Foundation, Turning Point USA (a group that maintains a “professor watch list” of those they accuse of discrimination against conservatism and advance a left-wing agenda at universities), PragerU (short for Prager University which is not actually a university or any sort of institution of higher learning), and Claremont Institute, another right-wing think tank.

Individuals invited are Bill Mitchell who is a radio host who’s promoted extremists QAnon conspiracy theories, Carpe Donkum, an anonymous troll who won an InfoWars contest for best “fake news” meme or some crap like that, and Ali Alexander who is popular with the haters and Donald Trump Jr. for smearing Senator Kamala Harris by claiming she’s not an “American black.”

Others are James O’Keefe of Project Veritas (the group that tricks people while they’re being secretly filmed, then they doctor the footage and release it), and Benny Johnson who’s a right-wing activist who was a journalist until he got canned by BuzzFeed for plagiarism.

One guy who was invited, then uninvited is conservative-conspiracy-loving Ben Garrison, famous for using anti-Semitic images in his cartoons and for loving him some Trump. If Donald Trump could draw himself, it’d look like a Garrison drawing. Strong face, large hands, muscles, regular tie, and hair only slightly ridiculous. How much of a right-wing lunatic is Garrison to be uninvited to this troglodyte shitshow?

Apparently, after his invite became public (and Benjy proudly posted a pic of it on Twitter), a cartoon he drew of George Soros being manipulated by a hand of the Rothschilds, and Soros in return pulling puppet strings on H.R. McMaster and General David Petraeus started to receive more attention. It probably wouldn’t have been that big of a deal for the White House if they hadn’t expressed fake outrage and shaken their pearls at a cartoon in the international edition of The New York Times that many perceived as being anti-Semitic.

The White House decided this was one jerk they couldn’t invite to their circle. Garrison is upset about being uninvited. You have to understand and appreciate his disappointment. This was like Nazi Space Camp for him.

Benjy said the cartoon wasn’t anti-Semitic because it was based on “historical fact” and that the Rothschild family played a large role in the evolution of centralized banking and being behind the scenes of the creation of the Federal Reserve. Of course, none of that is true, but Benjy bases his beliefs on conspiracy theories, lies, and racist bullshit. And this is where I have a problem with the guy.

I don’t have a problem that he’s a conservative cartoonist or that he even loves Trump something fierce. While I’m not a fan of his style, which consists of labels, labels, labels, and more labels, I respect that’s his thing and he’s not witty enough to write an idea that doesn’t need label overload. I can appreciate he doesn’t know how to actually draw a cartoon. I don’t care that he’s obsessed with Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (and in case you can’t identify them in his cartoons, they’re labeled).

My problem is he’s mistaken for a political cartoonist when he’s a propagandist. What’s the difference? For starters, a political cartoonist would NOT accept an invite to help a politician advance their agenda, even one that wasn’t based on conspiracy theories.

Garrison also bases his cartoons on conspiracy theories and not facts which is not something any journalist would do. And, yes. Political cartoonists are journalists. There are journalism awards for it. Although we engage in opinion journalism and satire and make a mockery of our targets left and right, a political cartoonist bases his work on truth. You can disagree with an opinion. You can find that the cartoonist left something out. The cartoonist is biased. The cartoonist is unfair. But, the cartoon is based on a fact. Benjy bases his shit on shit Donald Trump says. For Benjy, Donald Trump is truth.

Benjy does not just drink the Kool-Aid. Benjy is on a Kool-Aid IV drip. If you don’t believe me, Google the guy. I’m not sharing a link here because he’s famous enough and today’s cartoon has done enough to increase his name recognition. But, the guy is a hack. He is extremely talented as an artist, but a hack.

Michael Ramirez, Rick McKee, Scott Stantis, and Nate Beeler are conservative political cartoonists. I can pick apart any argument they push into a political cartoon, but they’re still political cartoons. I love reading their work. I love reading Benjy’s work too because it’s inadvertently funny. It’s funny how much of a hack he is.

The thing is, I’m not the one who should have the largest problem with Garrison. The people who should really take issue with the guy are other conservative cartoonists because he’s often lumped in with them. They’re the one who should be disinviting him to a party.

Political cartooning is under attack. Cartoonists have been laid off from positions they held for decades. Last year, one was fired for doing his job because he refused to stop drawing cartoons criticizing Trump. The New York Times has banned all cartoons, but they plan to take graphics and enter then in the Editorial Cartoon category for the Pulitzer Prize. Cartoonists worldwide are being murdered or jailed by their governments. Idiots are comparing memes to political cartoons (I spent ten hours on today’s cartoon. Nobody has EVER spent ten hours or even done research for a meme). Political cartoonists have to spend their entire careers working with editors who don’t understand political cartoons. And then, the White House attempts to elevate Ben Garrison, the hackiest hack who’s ever hacked out a cartoon.

While Garrison craves for his Trump love to be returned and accepted the invite, I crave to be blocked by Trump on Twitter. Why? Because I’m a political cartoonist. And as you can see here, I really don’t care who I piss off.

As for Benjy’s disappointment, I’m sorry. But hopefully, at the very least his Big Mac and Kool-Aid are in the mail.
