Racist TV


Republicans are working overtime in several yee-haw states to make it illegal for public schools to teach that America is a racist country despite the fact nobody is teaching it, and despite the fact America IS a racist country.

Republicans refuse to believe this is a racist country and think even mentioning our racist past will put children through emotional trauma from white guilt. These fucknut fuckers also refuse to believe white privilege exists because they’re incapable of seeing it even while being the beneficiaries of it.

There’s an episode of 30 Rock where pretty people get better service, but they don’t realize they’re receiving better service than average-looking everyday schmoes like Tina Fey. It’s the same thing with white people and white privilege. They don’t see their privilege because they only see themselves. They aren’t paying attention to people who don’t look like them except when they turn on Fox News which is constantly screaming about the victimization of white people. THAT…they believe. White Christians believe they are the most persecuted demographic in the history of the world.

We are a racist country steeped in systemic racism lingering from our racist past. Our nation was founded on racism and still has a culture, business, and legal system that discriminates based on race. Republicans ask how can we be a racist nation while at the same time they’re making it harder for black people to vote and making it illegal to talk about racism. “How can we be a racist nation after electing a black president?”, they ask while also trying to delegitimize him by claiming he was born in Kenya.

There’s a lot of evidence we’re a racist nation from pay inequality to the number of African-Americans in prison that’s disparate to their population to police brutality to Colin Kaepernick being unable to get a job while white America’s defending a football coach for kneeling in prayer on the field to Hollywood hiring white actors to play Asians. But the biggest evidence we’re a racist country is that a racist like Donald Trump was elected president (sic) of the United States of America.

Sure, Trump didn’t win the popular vote as more people voted against him, and he lost in 2020, but there are enough Americans, 74 million of them, voting for Trump that make this a racist nation.

These people are so racist that they voted for a racist despite the fact he had zero experience, never gave details on how he was ever going to accomplish anything, and from all evidence, is a fucking moron. They’re so racist, they overlooked the fact they voted for a man who literally paints himself orange and wears a bleached skunk on his head. Personally, those are signs of dementia and alone should be disqualifying factors. Paint your face orange and wear a bleached skunk on your head then apply for a job at Taco Bell and see if they hire you. Republicans are afraid teaching racism will make white kids feel bad, but voting for that racist orange moron sure did make them feel good.

When Donald Trump said he could shoot a person on 5th Avenue and his followers would still vote for him, he was right. He could shoot a person on any avenue and his base would still vote for him because of his racism. He was the best they had.

Then again, maybe making Trump president (sic) isn’t the biggest sign we’re a racist nation. Perhaps the greatest indicator we’re racist is Tucker Carlson and the fact his show is the most popular in America.

Maybe racists have more time to watch TV than non-racists. Maybe racists have more time on their tiny racist hands than non-racists, who are probably too busy to watch TV because they’re out doing things like fighting racism.

Tucker is so racist, he claims he doesn’t know what racism or white nationalism is. He asks what they are incredulously and in the same manner I asked, “What is ball tanning?” Tucker’s inability to see racism probably stems from his privileged prep school upbringing. His white privilege is compounded with his trust-fund baby privilege.

A new study by The New York Times explains how Tucker Carlson “stoked white fear to conquer cable.” The New York Times wrote that Tucker Carlson “has constructed what may be the most racist show in the history of cable news.” They also include “perhaps, the most successful.” The times analyzed 1,150 shows in their study of Tucker’s racism.

Tucker declares himself an “enemy of prejudice” while telling his 92 percent white audience that they’re being replaced by nonwhite immigrants. When African migrants crossed our border into Texas, Tucker warned that the continent’s high birth rates meant the new arrivals might soon “overwhelm our country and change it completely and forever.” Tucker talked about African birthrates as if he was talking about rabbits….dirty dirty rabbits.

Tucker said, “We don’t judge them by group, and we don’t judge them on their race” a few weeks before claiming immigrants are making our nation dirtier. The Times writes that Tucker, “warns his viewers that they inhabit a civilization under siege — by violent Black Lives Matter protesters in American cities, by diseased migrants from south of the border, by refugees importing alien cultures, and by tech companies and cultural elites who will silence them, or label them racist, if they complain.”

I’m not eager to call everyone a racist who disagrees with me. But, I am not afraid to call a racist a racist. I use a lot more discretion than conservatives use accusing political opponents of being pedophiles…while they themselves support pedophiles.

But Tucker doesn’t consider himself a racist because Putin has never called him a racist, which he pointed out on his show. And by god, Putin is probably an expert on this since he’s identified Ukraine as a nation of Nazis, which is his reasoning for his invasion…which Tucker has supported. Hey, if a war criminal hasn’t called you a racist, then you must not be a racist. Right?

Fox News lawyers argued in a slander suit that Tucker’s show is just entertainment and “any reasonable viewer arrive(s) with an appropriate amount of skepticism about the statements he makes.” But Fox News viewers are not reasonable people.

Tucker’s show is racist and it caters to the white nationalists he claims don’t exist and whose attack on our nation’s capital is something that will barely register as a “footnote” in history. Carlson likes to use the term “legacy Americans,” a dog-whistle term he lifted directly from the Daily Stormer, a Nazi publication. Tucker pushed the story of white farmers in South Africa being murdered by black South Africans, which was first pushed in racist havens on the dark web, like Gab and 4chan.

Tucker is also the biggest champion of “the great replacement,” a racist belief that Democrats are deliberately importing “more obedient voters from the third world” to “replace” the current white electorate and keep themselves in power. Meanwhile, Republicans are making it harder for black AMERICANS to vote.

A Fox News spokesgoon said, “Tucker Carlson programming embraces diversity of thought and presents various points of view in an industry where contrarian thought and the search for truth are often ignored. Stories in ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ broadcasts and ‘Tucker Carlson Originals’ documentaries undergo a rigorous editorial process. We’re also proud of our ongoing original reporting at a time when most in the media amplify only one point of view.” He actually said this with a straight face.

A “rigorous” editorial process? How rigorous was the process with the Seth Rich story? “Embraces diversity of thought”? How often does Tucker have an opposing viewpoint on his show? And “most in the media amplify one point of view”? No wonder they don’t see white privilege. They don’t even see their own show.

Tucker’s show is racist because Tucker Carlson is a racist. And Fox News has made him immune from the few journalism ethics policies they have, and Tucker even boasts how he doesn’t answer to the channel’s chief executive. He only answers to Rupert Murdoch, the owner of Fox News. Murdoch is happy with Tucker’s racism as it brings in at least three million viewers each night while CNN and MSNBC struggle to reach one million each.

Tucker invoked the “ruling class” in more than 800 shows and told his white nationalist audience the “ruling class” is importing immigrants from the “Third World” to replace them with more “obedient voters.” The “ruling class” is an antisemitic dog whistle that helped lead to the chants of “Jews will not replace us” in Charlottesville. The “Great Replacement” theory was also cited by the Pittsburgh synagogue shooter and the shooter who targeted Hispanic shoppers in El Paso. There have been no apologies or ownership of this from Fox News or Tucker.

The Times found that Tucker has amplified the idea of demographic replacement in more than 400 episodes. He’s also highlighted shifting gender roles and falling white birthrates in more than 200 episodes.

R. Derek Black, a former white nationalist who has disavowed the movement, said it It doesn’t really matter if Tucker believes any of this because he’s using the same rhetoric as white nationalists. Black said having the most popular cable news host “directly pulling” from their talking points “makes them feel like, ‘Wow, we must be right.’” But despite what the lawyers for Fox News said, I think Tucker does believe in the stuff he says. I believe Tucker Carlson is a white nationalist. Tucker Carlson is a racist. And, Carlson’s TV show is also the most popular show with white nationalists.

Former grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan David Duke said in 2020 that Trump should choose Carlson as his running mate. Nick Fuentes, another white nationalist, cheered Carlson’s promotion of the “Great Replacement” theory. Andrew Anglin, the founder of The Daily Stormer, called Carlson “literally our greatest ally.” They used Carlson’s image and his “Great Replacement “theory to promote a White Lives Matter rally.

If you don’t think you’re a racist but all the racists agree with you, you’re doing something wrong. Also, if all the racists agree with you then you’re most likely a racist too. They’re not watching Tucker for his cooking segments, which if he did have, would probably only teach how to boil white rice.

Tucker along with other Fox goons gloated over the demise of CNN+, especially targeting their former colleague Chris Wallace. Fox News celebrates the demise of an outlet that told the truth while they can keep telling lies and racist conspiracy theories.

Tucker used the Times article on his show and called journalists at the newspaper “obedient little establishment defenders” and asked: “Why do they keep calling us racist? Well, to make us shut up, obviously.”

No, Tucker. They called you a racist because you’re a racist, and that’s why you have the number one program. The majority of America’s TV “news” viewing audience would rather be told racist lies and conspiracy theories than hear the truth because America is racist.

Cruzin’ Into A Flytrap


CjonesRGB02062022

As I prepare to write this blog, I did a news search on Google for “Ted Cruz,” and there’s a brand new Cruz controversy since he made his stupid racist statement about Biden nominating a black woman to the Supreme Court. Take a day off, Ted.

Last year during a winter freeze that froze Texas, Ted Cruz bailed on the state for an impromptu getaway in sunny Cancun, Mexico. Yesterday, as another winter freeze was bearing down on his state, he tweeted out a joke about rising ticket prices to Cancun. I know Ted Cruz is trying to be funny, but it’s not working. Ted will never be as funny as his face, but his soul is uglier.

Monday, Ted Cruz went off on his podcast…wait. Ted Cruz has a podcast? Are podcasts becoming the new memes when it comes to racist right-wingers disseminating conspiracy theories and lies?

Anyway, Ted took to his podcast to gripe about President Joe Biden’s promise to nominate a black woman to the Supreme Court. Ted said Biden’s pledge to nominate a Black woman sent a message to other Americans that they are automatically “ineligible” because of race and gender.

Ted screamed, “The fact that he’s willing to make a promise at the outset, that it must be a Black woman, I got to say that’s offensive. You know, Black women are what, six percent of the U.S. population? He’s saying to 94 percent of Americans, ‘I don’t give a damn about you, you are ineligible.’”

Actually, Ted. Most Americans are ineligible as typically, only lawyers serve on the Supreme Court, so technically, each justice on the Supreme Court represents less than 0.003 percent of Americans. And don’t get me started on all the lawyers in the House and Senate.

My friend Mike Peterson pointed out today on his blog at The Daily Cartoonist, while black women represent seven percent of the population (not six), they represent 12% of the population by race and 51% by gender.

Ted also said, “If he came and said, ‘I’m gonna put the best jurist on the court and he looked at a number of people and he ended up nominating a Black woman, ‘Okay, I’m nominating the person who’s most qualified.’ He’s not even pretending to say that, he’s saying, ‘If you’re a White guy, tough luck. If you’re a White woman, tough luck. You don’t qualify.’”

Is that what Donald Trump said when he promised to nominate a woman before he nominated Amy Coney Barret to the Supreme Court? Do you remember Ted Cruz clutching his pearls on that one? No, you don’t because he never did.

Also, if President Biden promised to put the best jurist on the court, never made a statement about race, and then nominated a spectacular black female judge for the position, Ted Cruz would still vote against that person and would most likely make a pubic statement about the candidate’s race and gender.

He also claimed Biden’s upcoming Supreme Court pick was “actually an insult to Black women,” though the only black woman we could find insulted by it is Candace Owens, who herself is actually an insult to black women.

Ted is worried there’s going to be a nomination to the Supreme Court that will only represent six percent of the population. Hey, good job pretending you care about shit like that, Ted. But let me point out that all three of Donald Trump’s picks represented the minority vote of the 2016 election as more voters preferred Hilary Clinton over Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin. Let me also point out that these picks barely scraped by on Republican votes in the Senate, where despite there being a GOP majority during the Trump administration, Democratic Senate candidates received 7 million more votes than Republican Senate candidates in 2016. Today, at this very moment, Democrats in the Senate represent 41,549,808 more people than Republicans represent. Let me write that so a Republican can read it. That’s more than FORTY-ONE MILLION.

Let’s not forget Ted is in favor and in full support of Republicans wiping out voting rights for black Americans, thus increasing a minority-Republican hold on power. There’s also that little incident where Ted supported a coup to overturn a democratic election to install the Republican loser, who lost by nearly eight million votes, as a fascist dictator.

White men are 30 percent of the U.S. population yet held 62 percent of ALL elected offices. Women hold just 31 percent of elected offices despite making up 51 percent of the population, and non-whites hold just 13 percent of elected offices despite making up 40 percent of the population.

On top of all that, Ted Cruz represents the state of Texas despite the fact that racist demagogic sleazy condescending lying douchebags who might be the Zodiac Killer and who throw their wives and daughters under the bus while burying their faces between the orange ass cheeks of fascists wannabes are not the majority of the state’s population.

Do us all a favor, Ted. Go back to Cancun, but this time…don’t come back.

Creative note: After I made the WKRP joke in yesterday’s blog, I thought it would make a good cartoon. I was going to remove it before publishing the blog but then decided to leave it in as there are not a lot of people who read this blog.
When proofer Laura saw this cartoon, she told me that I’m old. I am old and I was a huge fan of WKRP in Cincinnati. Dr. Johnny Fever and Venus Flytrap were my two favorite characters…after Bailey Quarters. Unlike most kids, I didn’t have a crush on Loni Anderson. I was crushing on Bailey.

NFL Racism


CjonesRGB02052022

Former coach of the Miami Dolphins, Brian Flores, filed a class-action lawsuit against the NFL and three of its teams, the Dolphins, New York Giants, and the Denver Broncos, accusing them of sham interviews, incentives to lose games, and press to improperly recruit players. Naturally, the NFL and the teams denied all of the accusations. Sure, they’re not racist. Meanwhile, how long has Colin Kaepernick been out of the league since protesting systemic racism?

Currently, there is only one black head coach in the NFL, Mike Tomlin of the Pittsburgh Steelers. There have been nine openings this season with four of them being filled so far with…wait for it…white guys. If a team doesn’t hire another black coach this season, Mike Tomlin is in danger of becoming the NFL’s Venus Flytrap. We already lost Dr. Johnny Fever so we can’t allow this to happen.

There is a rule in the league, called the Rooney rule, requiring each team to interview two minority candidates for head-coaching jobs. Since this doesn’t require a team to actually hire a black head coach, they can just go through the motions, interview non-white candidates and then go ahead and hire their white guy. Everyone knows there are teams that do this, but they’ve become so relaxed about it, that according to Flores, some teams conduct the interview with the black candidates AFTER they hire their white guy.

Black coaches have been saying in private for years that most of their interviews were shams. But Flores is saying he has proof of these sham interviews. He has screenshots of text messages from Patriot’s coach Bill Belichick that shows he was aware of the Giants hiring a white head coach three days before they interviewed Flores.

Flores was previously an assistant coach under Belichick, who texted him congratulating him on being hired as head coach of the Giants. But, he hadn’t been hired by the Giants. After Flores told Belichick he hadn’t even been interviewed yet, the Patriot’s coach found out it was another guy who was hired, a white dude, and apologized to Flores. Three days later, Flores went to the sham interview…reportedly.

He’s also accusing the Denver Broncos of using him to get around the Rooney rule in 2019, saying they were drunk when he came in for his interview and didn’t take it seriously. If there are mojitos at your job interview, that means you either got the job or the interviewer doesn’t even know you’re there.

The accusation that Dolphins owner Stephen Ross offered to pay Flores to lose games is serious. It undermines the entire league if teams are intentionally losing games in order to move up in the draft. Also, how do you fire a guy for not winning when you offered him bonuses to lose? Since Flores has a winning record the past two seasons, maybe he was fired for winning.

Hue Jackson, former coach of the Cleveland Browns may join the class-action suit as he’s claimed the owner of that team also offered him bonuses to lose.

Also, if owners are paying coaches to lose, it would explain a lot about the New York Jets.

The accusation of improperly recruiting players relates to the owner of the Dolphins setting up a “chance” encounter between Flores and a quarterback who was still under contract to another team. Teams are not supposed to recruit players under contracts to other teams. It’s a big no-no.

Brian Flores is only 40-years-old. He’s younger than Tom Brady, but Tom Brady will probably get a head coaching job in the NFL before Flores is ever offered another one. Hue Jackson may be on the outs too. Look what happened to Colin Kaepernick.

Since the 49s released Kaepernick in 2016, he’s only had one official tryout in the league. He’s so toxic to the league for his anti-racism protests, they won’t even talk to him. He also sued the league and reached a settlement.

That’s probably where this lawsuit will go. There will be a settlement along with a bunch of promises to do better…and a few years later, Flores can sue them again for blackballing him out of the league.

The only thing left here is for Ted Cruz and Roger Wicker to come out screaming there aren’t enough white coaches in the NFL….or with the death of Dr. Johnny Fever, not enough white DJs at WKRP in Cincinnati.

Mitch, Please


CjonesRGB01252022

Politicians make gaffes. Some examples are Gary Johnson’s “What is Aleppo?” Rick Perry unable to name the third department he’d eliminate (which he was later appointed to head by Trump). George W. Bush’s “Fool me once, shame on you…fool me…can’t get fooled again.” President Obama’s “57 states,” which Republicans still can’t let go. And then there’s Joe Biden in the 2008 campaign when he said then-Senator and candidate Barack Obama was “articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.” Every politician has gaffes, but what Senate Minority Leader and anti-Voting Rights goon Mitch McConnell said on Wednesday was NOT a gaffe.

When asked what he’d tell black voters who are afraid the Senate’s failure to pass the Voting Rights Act will prevent them from voting in this November’s mid-terms, Mitch said, “If you look at the statistics, African American voters are voting in just as high percentage as Americans.”

When I first saw this on social media, I thought it was a parody. And as I often state, it’s getting harder and harder to parody satire. Did Mitch McConnell really state that black voters aren’t Americans? Yes, yes he did.

Millions are now asking, “Why would Mitch say that?” They’re scratching their heads and scratching and scratching, and they keep on scratching until they draw blood…but stop that scratching, America (all of you, not just the white ones). It’s no mystery why Mitch McConnell would say something like this. There’s a simple and obvious answer.

The reason why Mitch McConnell would state that black people aren’t Americans but white people are is that Mitch McConnell is a racist. Duh. So, his statement was not a gaffe. It was a Freudian slip. A Freudian slip is when you accidentally expose how you really feel.

Way back in the day, politicians didn’t have to hide their hate. They would openly campaign on their hate, like George Wallace, Strom Thurmond, and Jesse Helms. Now, they have to use code words to racists and other assorted haters. These are dog whistles. A racist Republican can’t say the N-word anymore so he’ll say “thug.” If another can’t say the word “Jew” in one of his rants, he can replace it with “globalist.” You can also let people know where you stand by saying “build the wall,” “send them back,” “critical race theory,” and “vote Trump.” They’re all dog whistles.

The thing about white conservatives is that they want this nation to continue being controlled by whites. They want a white America. Even as Caucasians are losing their majority, they believe they are entitled and should have more representation than the rest of America. Look at the Supreme Court. Every GOP nominee is white except for the black friend. The “black friend” is the “proof” conservatives to use that they’re not racist.
Republicans are now changing voting laws throughout the country to maintain and create Republican majorities in state legislatures, Congress, and to win the presidency, but also to keep white control. There’s a line in the cartoon Family Guy where a rich person gripes that in the good ole days, white people controlled 100 percent of America instead of what it controls now, 99 percent.

Republicans will cheat to maintain their white control. It’s why they gerrymander. It’s why old racist Kentucky fucks like Mitch McConnell steal Supreme Court seats.

But, they’re supposed to use dog whistles and pretend like they’re crafting racist laws for the good of everyone, so they use phrases like “voter integrity,” when there’s no mass voter fraud. They use Martin Luther King Jr’s speech on judging content of character and not skin color to justify voter suppression based on skin color. And in case you haven’t noticed, when they talk about fictional voter fraud, they point at “inner-cities.” That’s another dog whistle. But those dogs don’t hunt and we see right through you.

And then Mitch throws up an airball which is still hanging. Everyone can see it. Mitch McConnell, your racism is showing.

“Mitch please” has been trending on Twitter over the past two days and thousands of black Americans are letting Mitch know something he didn’t before Wednesday. Black Americans are Americans.

In Mitch’s statement, he referred to black voters as “African-Americans” before he made the statement about “Americans.” But, Mitch. How can someone be an African-American if they’re not American? Also, how can they vote if they’re not an American? Oh….now I see. You don’t think black people are Americans which means they don’t deserve the right to vote in American elections, so that’s why you’re trying to take it away.

Paula Dunn Brown tweeted a photo of herself with the caption, “I’m so American I don’t even know which part of Africa Mitch’s ancestors stole mine from!!”

The real irony here is that taking away voting rights and creating laws making it harder for ANY American is unAmerican. What’s also unAmerican is supporting a coup, attempting to overthrow an election, building a wall to keep out immigrants, voting for the candidate favored by a Russian president, spreading an election lie, trying to overturn an election, or starting conspiracy theories that the first black president wasn’t born in America, or telling Americans they’re not American.

Mitch McConnell and his Republican goon colleagues are telling us who is and isn’t American. It’s a truly white privilege to designate yourself as that authority.

Mitch, please.

Racist Racists


CjonesRGB01172022

Once again, the people who scream loudest about “cancel culture,” political correctness, and cry that people are trying to take away their freedom of speech, are whining about President Joe Biden’s speech on the Voting Rights Act. This is another opportunity for white Christians to play like the most persecuted people in the history of persecutions.

President Biden went to Atlanta and if it wasn’t Hotlanta before, it is now. In his speech, President Biden compared those opposing the Voting Rights Act to racists of yore.

President Biden challenged Republicans in the Senate, and probably elsewhere, with the comparisons. He asked, “Do you want to be on the side of Dr. King or George Wallace? Do you want to be on the side of John Lewis or Bull Connor? Do you want to be on the side of Abraham Lincoln or Jefferson Davis? This is the moment to decide, to defend our elections, to defend our democracy. If you do that you will not be alone.”

It was a strong speech. Asked about the criticism, White House spokesperson Jen Psaki said, “I know there has been a lot of claim of the offensive nature of the speech yesterday, which is hilarious on many levels, given how many people sat silently over the last four years for the former president, but I would note that in our view, and the president’s view, what is far more offensive is the effort to suppress people’s basic right to exercise who they want to support and who they want to elect. That’s not a partisan thing, and that was why he gave such a strong speech yesterday.”

Republicans were upset. Even some Democrats were upset. Democratic Senator Dick Durbin said, “Perhaps the President went a little too far in his rhetoric.” Maybe Republicans are right about some Democrats because Durbin has gone snowflake us on.

But most of the people pissed off about the speech are the people who actually stand with Jefferson Davis, Bull Connor, and George Wallace.

Mitch McConnell, who spent four years burying his face between the ass cheeks of President Grab-Them-By-The-Pussy, called the president’s speech “unpresidential.” He also called it an “incoherent rant.” I bet Bull Connor would have appreciated that.

Tulsi Gabbard, a former Democratic representative who’s in the wrong party, compared Biden’s speech to when Hillary Clinton called Trump supporters “deplorables,” calling that “divisive and disgusting.” She tweeted, “But Biden has gone further, calling those who disagree with his actions & policies domestic enemies, traitors, and racists. Biden promised to unite us, but he is doing all he can to divide us.”

But here’s the thing, kiddos, Hillary Clinton was right. The people who support Trump are deplorable. Voting for a grifting lying racist who boasts about assaulting women, mocks the handicapped, and cuddles up to Vladimir Putin is deplorable. And Joe Biden is right too.

The people writing the new voting restriction laws based on the Big Lie are on the same side as Jefferson David, Bull Connor, and George Wallace. If you support making it harder for minorities to vote, congratulations. You’re supporting racist policies.

Gabbard said it’s “divisive” to call people who disagree with Biden’s policies “domestic enemies, traitors, and racists,” but he didn’t do that. He was talking specifically about voting rights. But ya’ know, those people who attacked the election results, and then tried to overturn an election and destroy our democracy by attacking the Capitol are domestic enemies. The people who tried to install Donald Trump as an unelected leader are terrorists.

Basically, President Joe Biden is in trouble for calling racists “racist.” Racists don’t like being called “racist.” It’s so unfair to the racists.

Why can’t racists support a racist president without being called “racist?”

Why can’t racists support racist policies, like making it harder for black people to vote, without being called “racist?”

Why can’t racists join racist clubs, like Oath Keepers, One Percenters, Proud Boys, and Q Anon, without being called “racist?”

It’s like this: Being a Republican doesn’t mean you’re a racist, but all racists vote for Republicans. If you’re a Republican, you’re on the same side as racists. If you vote Republican, you’re voting the same candidates the racists vote for. Your ballot is identical to David Duke’s ballot.

And I cut you some slack in 2016 and spent four years saying that voting for Donald Trump doesn’t mean you’re a racist…but it does now.

If you voted for Donald Trump in 2020, you’re a racist. You had four years of him spouting racist shit and policies from the White House. In 2016, you might have voted for Donald Trump despite the racism. Racism was not a deal-breaker for you in 2016. In 2020, you didn’t vote for Donald Trump despite his racism. You voted for Donald Trump because of his racism.

And if you try to pass off that bullshit, “Donald Trump isn’t a racist,” then you’re a fucking racist.

President Biden can’t call racists “racist.” He’ll get in trouble for it. But I can.

I like being on the side of Abraham Lincoln, Dr. King, and John Lewis. If you don’t like being called a racist, that’s your own stupid fault for being on the side of Jefferson Davis, Bull Connor, and George Wallace. It’s your own fault for being a racist.

Music note: I listened to Taylor Swift’s “Folklore” album today. I still haven’t listened to her latest, “Evermore,” because if it’s as brilliant as “Folklore,” I don’t know if I’m prepared for that double-whammy of genius.

Hate in an Elevator


CjonesRGB12052021

There is a current debate within the Republican Party over if they should stop being openly racist, bigoted, immature, and cease all the hateful attacks that make them feel so warm and squishy inside. The more mature members of the party are worried all this transparent hatred will carry over and hurt them in the midterms and believe it would be best to go back to concealing their racism inside their policies and dog whistles.

Maybe some members are afraid their racist constituents are too stupid to catch dog whistles. I mean, they’re too stupid for irony, so maybe.

A couple weeks ago, white nationalist representative Paul Gosar, posted an anime video of him murdering Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. He said he was trying to appeal to young people, like Nazi Youth.

Racist representative Lauren Boebert has been on tour doing the same standup routine of accusing her colleague, Ilhan Omar, who is Muslim, of being a terrorist. It’s hilarious if you’re a Nazi.

Bobo tells this story of being in an elevator with Omar (or it’s a colleague in the elevator, depending on which version of Bobo’s you wanna go with), where she says something like “we should be safe because she doesn’t have a backpack,” implying a Muslim would only have a backpack to conceal a bomb.

Can’t Republicans just wink and nod at each other while making it harder for black people to vote without posting anime videos of them killing non-white women?

This is religious bigotry. For Republicans, religious bigotry is OK depending upon the religion you’re being hateful toward. The party’s leader, Donald Trump called for “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States” while on the campaign trail in 2015. He also demanded that all mosques be spied on and some mosques to be shut down. His reasoning for this was that Muslims have hate toward the United States. As I keep saying, Republicans don’t catch irony or hypocrisy.

As president (sic), Trump used the phrase “send them back” in regards to “The Squad,” representatives Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley. This became a huge racist chant at his racist rallies. But the thing is, where did Trump want to send them back to? “Shithole” countries where everyone lives in “grass huts?” Other than Omar, who immigrated to this nation as a child, the other three non-white women were born in the United States. All four women are just as much American as you, I, and Donald Trump.

Though, I’m a better American than Donald Trump because I don’t want to dismantle the Constitution, install a fascist dictator, or sell my nation out to Russia.

Donald Trump is a racist and so is the rest of his party. I used to say that voting for Trump didn’t make someone a racist, but that racism is not a dealbreaker for them. Now, I do believe that if you voted for Trump twice, you’re a racist. You didn’t vote for Trump despite the racism, but because of it. Plus, you have been stupid enough to not catch the racism in 2016, but you had four years after that to figure it out. Did you miss when the guy couldn’t condemn Nazis without quibbling?

Now, there is infighting within the party. Representatives Nancy Mace and Marjorie Taylor Greene are fighting over whether or not the party should be openly racist. While Greene has joined Boebert in describing the “Squad as the “Jihad Squad,” Mace wants to limit the racism to supporting Donald Trump and his racist policies.

Boebert and Greene are documented idiots. While they’re yukking it up about the “Jihad Squad” and Muslim backpacks, they’re ignoring that most terrorism in this nation is committed by people who look like them.

White men are responsible for the majority of terrorist attacks in this nation. While Boebert may be afraid of a Muslim with a backpack, that Muslim has every right to worry about a white person with a MAGA cap.

It was white nationalist MAGAts who tried to overturn an election they lost. It was white nationalist MAGAts who tried to destroy our democracy and constitution. It was white nationalist MAGAts who attacked the United States Capital building. It was white nationalist MAGAts who tried to install an unelected orange fascist dictator.

Some MAGAts are deflecting. They’re pointing out that the driver in the Waukesha parade who killed six people and injured 62 others was a black guy who hates white people. But even if he had killed every person in that parade, white people would still be the leaders of American terrorism. Never mind the fact this man’s supposed hatred of white people had NOTHING to do with him driving through that parade. Also, was this a segregated parade or something?

A lot of MAGAts are talking about Jussie Smollett this week and the hoax he’s accused of perpetrating. He’s accused of creating a hoax of being attacked by Trump supporters and claiming a hate crime was committed. MAGAts would rather talk about the fake hate crime than the real ones.

MAGAts would rather talk about the black guy who created a hate crime hoax and ignore the fact hate crimes increased under Trump nationally by 20 percent. They don’t want to acknowledge that in the counties where Trump held rallies in 2016, hate crimes increased by over 200 percent.

They would rather talk about the black guy who created a hate crime hoax than talk about the black guy who was murdered by three white racists in Georgia.

Republicans, including Lauren Boebert, Marjorie Taylor Greene, and Donald Trump have accused Ilhan Omar of supporting terrorists, though there’s nothing like that on record. But, Lauren Boebert, Marjorie Taylor Greene, and Donald Trump have each supported white nationalist terrorism…and they’re still supporting terrorism.

The real irony here is that every Republican who supports Donald Trump also supports terrorism. For them, as long as the terrorism is white, it’s right.

Racist Raider


Cjones10152021

Jon Gruden said, “I never had a blade of racism in me.” No, Jon Gruden, you have an entire pasture of racism in you and you’re going to need some woke goats unleashed on it to mow it down.

Jon Gruden, a Super Bowl-winning head coach in the National Football League is a racist, homophobic, sexist, intolerant bigot.

An investigation by The Wall Street Journal (no link because I don’t subscribe) and The New York Times (I do subscribe) detail that emails from Jon Gruden to friends in the league from 2011 to 2018 don’t just reveal Gruden is a vile bigot, but that a hateful culture remains in the NFL.

The NFL has tried to be a bit more progressive over the past few decades. There is now a rule that at least one black candidate has to be interviewed for each open head coach position. The league has tried to be more inclusive over the concerns of black players. The league has denounced sexism and racism. By the way, what team does Colin Kaepernick play for now? It’s not the Raiders.

Gruden’s emails were uncovered during a separate investigation of sexism, bullying, harassment, and a hostile work environment at the Washington Football Team, formerly the “Redskins,” which is also racist. Gruden’s emails were to Bruce Allen, who was the general manager at the time.

Interesting tidbit: Bruce Allen is the son of George Allen who was the coach of the Washington Football Team, and the brother of George Allen, a former governor and United States senator in Virginia who used to keep a noose in his office as a memento, which is also racist.

Another interesting tidbit: The Washington Football Team was the last NFL team to integrate.

There were several other coaches and administration officials from NFL teams in these emails. It was like a CC of bigotry. Some of those people are Ed Droste, the co-founder of Hooters; Jim McVay, an executive who has run the Outback Bowl, and Nick Reader, the founder of PDQ fried chicken Restaurants. According to the Times, these guys weren’t just receiving Gruden’s emails and reading them. They were also offering their own bigoted comments. These racists were willful participants and were yukking it up. Who would have expected willful participation in misogyny from the Hooters guy?

Jon Gruden coached the Raiders in the late 90s and into the early 2000s. He quit to take the head coach position in Tampa Bay, who had just fired Tony Dungy (who is black) for not advancing in the playoffs (after making the playoffs). Gruden took the Buccaneers to the Super Bowl and won in his first season, with a team built by Dungy. Gruden was fortunate that the opponent in that game were the Raiders, who were still using Gruden’s playbook. Gruden remained with the Bucs for six more years and only made the playoffs twice without ever winning another playoff game. He then became an NFL analyst for ESPN and and acquired lucrative endorsement contracts.

By the way, Tony Dungy went to Indianapolis where he inherited a horrible team like he did in Tampa. But also like he did in Tampa, he built that team into a Super Bowl team. It didn’t hurt that he also inherited Peyton Manning.

Jon Gruden was viewed by the league and fans as a brilliant one-of-a-kind football coach even though he was mediocre at best. Daniel Snyder could have coached that Dungy team to the Super Bowl. Jon Gruden left ESPN in 2018 to return to the Raiders, who had been pursuing him for six years, gave him a ten-year contract worth over $100 million, and partial ownership of the team. It was the richest contract in the league. In return, Gruden gave them a record of 22-31. His best season was 8-8. Gruden might be a fun analyst but he’s a mediocre football coach. He’s also a racist, sexist, homophobe, and in general, an all-around bigot.

What were in these seven years of emails that were so horrible? Surely, they couldn’t have been that bad, right? Well, in one he referred to DeMaurice Smith, the black leader of the NFL Players Association, as “Dumboriss Smith,” and said he “has lips the size of Michelin tires.” OK. Case closed. He’s a bigot. But, Gruden didn’t just specialize in racism. As I said, he’s an all-around bigot.

Gruden unleashed his bigotry casually in misogynistic and homophobic language over several years to denigrate people around the game and to mock some of the league’s most momentous changes, like adding female referees. Yeah, Gruden didn’t like that.

In the emails to Allen, Gruden called the league’s commissioner, Roger Goodell, a “faggot” and a “clueless anti football pussy” and said Goodell should not have pressured Jeff Fisher, then the coach of the Rams, to draft “queers,” a reference to Michael Sam, a gay player chosen by the team in 2014. If he returns to making commercials for Corona beer, where he’s on a beach answering a help line and telling callers to drink Corona, I wonder if they’ll allow him to use those words. Sure, it’s a Mexican beer, but Gruden’s endorsement will probably help sales with the Proud Boy crowd.

Gruden also criticized Goodell with homophobic language for trying to reduce concussions in the league. Yeah, because everyone knows it’s gay to care about concussions. Just play football. Gruden also used this type of language to go after other coaches, team owners, and journalists.

Gruden, like Donald Trump, wanted players fired for protesting during the national anthem. I wonder if he wrote, “Fire that sonofabitch”? Do you know what’s worse than protesting during the national anthem? Racism.

Gruden said he only used an “expletive” for Goodell because he was upset about team owners’ lockout of the players in 2011. He was also upset over safety measures in the league and that they were scaring parents from letting their sons play football. But, Gruden wasn’t a racist sexist homophobe just during 2011. Also, nobody only goes back to racist tropes while they’re angry. If a person calls you a racist or uses a gay slur, that person is racist and homophobic. He’s not just racist for one minute. Plus, Gruden must have been very comfortable writing down these comments with the people he was sending these racist homophobic sexist emails to, like the Hooters guy and Bruce Allen, the brother of former racist governor/senator George Allen who kept a noose in his office.

Gruden also liked to share photos of naked women with these NFL dudes, including two Washington cheerleaders. Speaking as a man, a lot of us don’t do that. I don’t and no, I’m not gay. If I did share those kind of photos, I think it would really weird my friends out. But then again, I don’t have friends like Jon Gruden, Bruce Allen, and the Hooters guy. I’m having a hard time getting over he was emailing the Hooters guy. Was Gruden emailing black jokes to the Uncle Ben guy and Paula Deen?

The cherry on top of all of this, for now, is that Gruden went after President Obama and Vice-President Biden in 2012. I don’t know what words he used for Obama, but he called Biden a “nervous clueless pussy.” I wonder what he thinks of Biden now.

Gruden claims he doesn’t remember any of these emails he was writing for seven years.

Stay tuned because we haven’t seen or heard all the words Gruden used in these emails but I’m certain more will be revealed. Maybe this is why he resigned last night in the middle of Monday Night Football.

Mark Davis, the owner of the Raiders, was aware of these emails before Sunday’s game…but Davis allowed Gruden to stick around. Then, more were revealed yesterday and Gruden resigned. If he hadn’t resigned yet, would he still be the head coach of the Raiders this morning?

This is the end for Jon Gruden as a coach, analyst, and Mexican beer spokesperson. At least it should be. There is no place in this nation for people who think the way Jon Gruden does….except in the Republican Party.

How much do you wanna bet that Donald Trump issues a statement defending Jon Gruden? And if the Michelin tires lips comment doesn’t prove you’re a racist, the Trump endorsement will.

Oops. White People Did It Again


Cjones09272021

Did you know in Wyoming, the state where Gabby Petito went missing, that over 700 indigenous people, over half of them women, went missing over the past decade?

Did you know over 50 percent of missing person cases involving a white individual gets news coverage while only 30 percent of missing indigenous people is covered?

Did you know over 11 percent of indigenous people are found within a week while 50 percent of white people are found in that time span? You do now.

And I know it now too as I wasn’t aware of any of that until a white blonde social media darling went missing.

Mary Johnson, a citizen of the Tulalip Tribes in Washington state went missing ten months ago. Last week, ten months after she went missing, the FBI offered a reward for information about her disappearance. Why did that take ten months?

Mary’s older sister said, “If that was a little white girl out there or a white woman, I’m sure they would have had helicopters, airplanes and dogs and searches.” And why shouldn’t she believe that? She believes that because it’s true.

John Walsh, the host of America’s Most Wanted, is doing everything he can to help police capture Gabby Petito’s fiancé, who’s a suspect in her homicide. Oh yeah. Gabby’s body has been found. Gabby’s disappearance will be examined on Walsh’s other show, “In Pursuit with John Walsh.” Maybe John Walsh has covered the disappearance of non-white women, but Gabby has definitely leaped over a LOT of non-white people who went missing before her. Maybe his show should be called, “In pursuit, if the victim is white, with John Walsh.”

Why is there a greater emphasis to find a missing white woman over non-white women? That is definitely racism. I guess part of white privilege is that if we’re murdered, they’ll probably find our body quicker than murdered darker skin people. We get taxis, promotions, less hassle at airports from TSA, and our discovered corpses.

Why is there greater media coverage for missing white people than for missing non-whites? That is racism but also ratings. But, why do missing white people bring in greater ratings than missing non-white people? Maybe Gabby’s coverage is because she was a social media personality while also being cute and blonde.

And I’m just as guilty as anyone else with this because I did a cartoon on Gabby before I even knew about the missing indigenous women. I wasn’t even aware of this issue until the journalists, whose shoulders I stand on, reported it. Now, it’s getting more coverage. But, when I did my last cartoon comparing the concern for Gabby to concern for Haitians at the border. I got screamed at by a lot of white people. This latest cartoon is on Twitter and already, I’ve been screamed at. Stop telling us things we don’t want to know!

This is not to downplay the tragedy of Gabby Petito. It’s to bring awareness so maybe other missing women receive the same attention and awareness as Gabby. I’m being accused of ignoring the abuse of a white woman by people ignoring the abuse of non-white women.

I’m not saying we should stop trying to end abuse of one some women while ignoring that of others. Can’t we help all of them? Can’t we at least stop ignoring women who need our help?

Meanwhile, we’re still talking about freeing Britney.

Note: I accidently reversed the states in the third panel. Thanks to an eagle-eyed reader, it was caught and I corrected it. Sorry.

Black Face On White Supremacy


Cjones09082021

Over the weekend, a speaker at a rally for California governor Gavin Newsome said his Republican opponent, Larry Elder, is a “black face on white supremacy.” Larry Elder is a controversial right-wing Trump-supporting conspiracy-spreading whack job with a radio show who also happens to be black. But black people can be conservative lunatics too, right? Is it fair to accuse one of them, like Larry Elder, of being a “black face on white supremacy?” After all, Larry Elder is totally 100 percent in favor of reparations for slavery.

Of course, it’s not descendants of slaves Larry wants reparations for. No, Larry believe slave OWNERS should be rewarded reparations.

Ya’ see, Larry was talking to fellow black conservative lunatic, Candace Owens (which helps defend him from the charges of racism because she can be his prop for a black friend), and he argued since slavery was legal, slave owners were robbed when slavery ended. He also argued the United States was the first country to end slavery, which is wildly untrue. We were one of the last to end slavery.

But here’s the thing, Larry: Even though slavery was legal, it was a human rights violation. You argue that white slave owners lost property with human beings being that property. Larry, you’re being a good Republican because you are putting monetary value over human lives.

There is one thing that transcends race and that is, it doesn’t matter if you’re black or white. Being a Republican today makes you a fucking heartless idiotic lunatic.

Larry is a black face on white supremacy because the shit he’s saying is what white supremacists say. Finally, the Ku Klux Klan has a black friend. But if Larry is like Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity, he’ll probably claim white supremacy doesn’t exist.

Larry’s ex-fiancée claims he “demanded” she get a tattoo on her body saying, “Larry’s girl,” and during an argument (probably over the “Larry’s girl” thing), pulled out a gun. Larry also says he’s been accused of sexual harassment twice, but he used the Donald Trump defense and said one of them wasn’t attractive enough for him to sexually harass. He said, “If you had seen her, you would know that the picture would be a complete defense. I’m just saying.” If that’s an argument than can we argue ugly stupid men like Donald Trump and Larry Elder are never innocent of sexual harassment? Larry literally has a face for radio.

Larry wants to be governor of California and maybe he’s trying to lose in that blue state. He says if he becomes governor that he’ll replace Senator Dianne Feinstein with a Republican. That right there tells you not to vote for Larry Elder. But, he’s given you a lot of other reasons not to vote for him. Let’s list a few.

Larry wants to end welfare completely. He claims systemic racism isn’t a thing and Black Lives Matter is responsible for rising crime. Why doesn’t this guy have a show on Fox News?

If he’s elected, Larry will remove all covid precautions in the state, including for state employees. That means no vaccine requirements, no mask mandates, no social distancing, and no testing.

Larry thinks Climate Change is a myth and so are the dangers of second-hand smoke. Larry wants to ban all abortions in California. He thinks cops should be allowed to use chokeholds.

Larry wants to get rid of the minimum wage entirely and says there is no gender-pay gap. He doesn’t believe there is workplace discrimination against women but there should be. If a woman plans to have children, Larry thinks her employer should be allowed to discriminate against her.

Larry has a hard time with women. He said, “Women know less than men about political issues, economics, and current events.” Displaying that famous Republican humor, Larry said “PMS” stands for “punish my spouse.” He probably thinks it’s punishment if his spouse won’t get a tattoo of “Larry’s girl.” He said all the women who participated in the 2017 Women’s March were “obese.”

Larry wants to abolish the IRS and the corporate tax rate. He believes we should get reduce government by 80 percent and that the federal government takes 50 percent of everyone’s income through mandates.

Also, he’s good buddies with Stephen Baby Goebbels Miller.

Larry Elder is bad news for California. This guy shouldn’t even have a platform on syndicated radio less enough a shot at the governorship. A lot of whack jobs are running in the recall election, but this one might actually have a chance.

If you’re in California, vote “NO” on the recall. Reject the recall…and reject the black face on white supremacy. Personally, I think Larry should get a tattoo saying, “KKK’s Bitch.”

Racist Putz With Putter


cjones07312021

One of my proofreaders asked if someone actually said the F-word with the N-word about one of the Capitol Police officers victimized in the insurrection by the Trump terrorists. She did not watch the January 6th Hearing this past Tuesday.

Yes. Capitol Police officer Harry Dunn testified before the committee that during the attack, one of the rioters told him they had a right to be in the Capitol because Donald Trump invited them, and that “nobody voted for Joe Biden.” Officer Dunn told the terrorist, who was wearing a pink MAGA shirt, that he voted for Joe Biden. He asked her, “Does my vote not count? Am I nobody?” She replied with, “You hear that, guys, this n***** voted for Joe Biden!”

First off, they claim nobody voted for Joe Biden and it was all election fraud, but when they’re confronted with someone who says he voted for Joe Biden, they want to kill him. For Trump supporters, voting for Joe Biden is a crime while committing an insurrection to destroy our democracy is not.

Dunn testified after the woman called him the N-word, that about 20 members of the crowd started booing and calling him a “fucking N*****.”

CNN ran the entire hearing uncensored. Later, they ran back audio of the segment uncensored. I saw the clip again on CNN and MSNBC where it was censored, but just the F-word. They still let the N-word fly. I find that puzzling because as you see here, I’m way less terrified of the F-word than I am of the N-word. I will drop “fucks” in here all day but I don’t want to quote someone, even in their own context, using the N-word. Fuck that N-word.

I don’t like the N-word and I’m not comfortable with it. An anchor on Newsmax said he refused to believe Dunn’s testimony without audio. Yeah, it’s incredulous that Trump supporters which consists of Nazis, Klansmen, Proud Boys, Oathkeepers and other various white nationalists, would ever say something racist. Why would racists want to support a guy who defends Nazis and calls out Proud Boys? Sheesh.

Of course, if he had personally heard a Trump supporter saying the N-word at a black cop, he would have found a way to claim it wasn’t racist, like the numerous times they had to defend Donald Trump’s racist remarks.

Other conservatives went after the testimony from Dunn and his fellow officers, calling them “crisis actors.” They went after them for whining about being gang-rushed by white nationalist terrorists. Tucker Carlson called Officer Dunn a “left-wing activist.”

That’s how conservative media presents people who are anti-racism and anti-terrorism. Why, they must be “left-wing activists.” The irony here is that they defend the terrorists as “activists” and “tourists” yet, claim being an activist is a bad thing if it’s from the left.

Every single person who defends the mob is a defender and supporter of racists and terrorists. I’m tired of having to say this, but the people who attacked the Capitol were terrorists. If you’re a Trump supporter, they’re your terrorists. Republicans have even made terrorist Ashli Babbit a martyr for being killed while trying to overturn an election and destroy democracy.

If conservatives really want audio to prove how horrible they are, in case footage of January 6 isn’t enough, they can listen to the voicemail left for officer Michael Fanone while he was testifying. In the voicemail, a racist homophobic (listen to it) Trump supporter says, “I wish they would’ve killed all you scumbags.”

Fanone sustained a traumatic brain injury, a heart attack and a concussion during the attack, and has since been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder. Republicans on Twitter called him a “pussy” for this. Keep in mind, Donald Trump hid in a basement when peaceful black protesters were outside the White House.

Officer Dunn was asked if this is America. He said, “Frankly, I guess it is America. It shouldn’t be. But I guess that’s the way things are.” Trump supporters are racist. That’s the way things are.

Dunn said he and the other officers testifying “represent the good side of America, human decency. We appeal to the good in people.”

Republicans appeal to the worst of us. Donald Trump built his political career appealing to hate. His entire tenure in the White House was a shout-out to racists. He spent four years, and continues to do so, playing to white grievances. This has been the strategy of Republicans since they enacted the Southern Strategy for Barry Goldwaters’ presidential campaign in 1964…and they haven’t looked back since.

Republicans are attacking the people trying to defend the nation from terrorists. Republicans are defending the racist terrorists. If the Oklahoma City bombing happened today, Fox News would be telling you Timothy McVeigh was a tourist who lost the keys to his rental van. Despite the van being full of fertilizer explosives, they’d say he wasn’t “armed” because he didn’t have a gun. Fox News and Timothy McVeigh had that in common…they’re both full of shit.

The real crisis actors are the ones pretending Trump supporters would never say anything racist.
