Racist In Chief

Pimps And Wizards


cjones06222018

The Republican Party has turned into the Cult of Trump, and while the backbone is racism, it also attracts a fair share of crazy people.

Racism is not a deal breaker for anyone who voted for Trump or supports him today. And while it’s not a deal breaker for all of them, it’s actually the selling point for many others.

Trump is king of the racist birther conspiracy that President Obama wasn’t born in this nation. He later stated he was (a few days before the election), but he has never apologized for it.

Trump purchased full-page ads in four New York City newspapers calling for the death penalty for the Central Park Five, despite DNA exonerating the black and Latino teenagers from Harlem of raping a jogger.

He kicked off his campaign calling Mexicans rapists and murderers. His proposed border wall with Mexico is an impossibility that’s really just red meat for his racist base (which is also a broken campaign promise, as he said Mexico will pay for it but is now demanding that Congress make you pay for it). He’s called for the surveillance of mosques. He initiated a ban on Muslims entering this nation. And today, his Justice Department is separating migrant children from their parents with a zero-tolerance party.

Donald Trump has hired the likes of white nationalists Stephen Miller and Steve Bannon, he retweets white supremacists and Nazis. He said there were “good people” among those in Charlottesville chanting “Jews will not replace us,” and “blood and soil.” He has attacked black athletes as being un-American for silently protesting police violence against blacks, and referred to them as “sons of bitches.”

Racists have been emboldened by him. Last week, Representative Steve King, a Republican from Iowa, retweeted Nazis. Other racists, Nazis, and Klansmen like David Duke, are openly praising Trump.

Corey Stewart, a guy who wraps himself in the Confederate flag and is very friendly to White Supremacists and a former chairman of Trump’s Virginia campaign, just won the GOP nomination for the United States Senate in Virginia.

While not a Republican, a very pro-Trump racist, and admitted pedophile is running for Congress in Virginia.

Now in Nevada, we have a Republican pimp. Dennis Hof is a 71-year-old Nevada brothel owner, and he defeated a three-term Republican incumbent for a seat in the State Assembly. He is a strong Trump supporter and even wrote a book titled “The Art of the Pimp.” This also proves that all the religious posturing among Republicans is just that, posturing.

It’s often been repeated, and I believe it. Not all Republicans are racists, but all racists are Republicans.

We’re Still Here

I’m not sure if this cartoon will widely be understood but I don’t mind taking a wild shot on a weekend. A normal person would have taken the night/morning off.

During Bill Maher’s last show of the season he talked about Donald Trump’s victory and the divide between Coastal and Rural America. During the show he gave each guest his audience a “We’re Still Here” cap. I’m not sure if that’s going to take off with people who oppose Trump, but who knows.

I actually did some research on this and learned that HBO is not marketing the caps. There is a schmoe on the internet selling them but I wouldn’t buy one. I don’t think the proceeds are going to a political movement or a cause other than some opportunist’s wallet.

If you’re skulking about your town and you see someone with a “Make America Great Again” or a “We’re Still Here” cap, try not to smack them. Dirty looks and putting gum in their hair will do. Just kidding. Who chews gum anymore?

Trumping, Tweeting, Trolling

A lot of people are upset that Trump haters are protesting the election. When I say “a lot of people” I’m talking about Republicans. They point out that this is a democracy and Democrats should accept the results of a fair election.

The problem with that is we are a democracy and our Constitution, for now, allows protests (and political cartoons that point out that Donald Trump is a racist). The other problem is that our election wasn’t really fair.

Donald Trump was elected with fewer votes than Hillary Clinton which is the second times this has happened since 2000, both times putting the Republican candidate into office. Trump was also supported by a foreign government who was hacking into his opponent’s email system and displaying their internal messages for all the world to see. Some of the messages were suspected to be doctored. Another assist for Trump came from the FBI which might be the final straw that convinced nimrods to mark the ballot for Trump.

The big issue with the Russians and the FBI is that both were apparently communicating with the Trump campaign. How fair of a system is that?

Before the election Trump claimed the electoral system was rigged. He complained about the electoral college and said he might refuse to accept the results if he won. That shows even he was surprised he won. What does he think of that rigged system now?

So while there are protests against Trump there are supporters of his attacking and intimidating African-Americans, Muslims, and Latinos. It’s not just happening in our streets. It’s happening in our schools. Children are being intimidated for the color of their skin by other children whose parents are doing a bang-up job raising little racist bastards. Trump tweeted out that complaint about protesters “Incited” by the media while ignoring his own inciting. He later tweeted support to the protesters and how wonderful it was they can express themselves. I’m thinking his team returned his Twitter account to him a bit too soon. If the guy’s Twitter account makes blood spill what’s he going to do when he gets the nuclear codes?

I wasn’t sure how this cartoon would work with posting a photo in it. I did it a year ago, or maybe two years, for a cartoon I drew for The Daily Dot. I remember thinking that turned out really well though I can’t remember what it was. I could look in my files but, eh. I’m lazy.
