Racists

One Small Step For Haters


cjones07222019

Yesterday, I heard white Republicans say they didn’t find anything remotely racist about Donald Trump’s “Go back where they came from” statement. Part of their defense was that they have black friends so they, like Trump, can’t be racist.

I propose a challenge for these non-racist white Republicans with “black friends.” Go up to one of your “black friends” and say, “Go back to where you came from.” Let me know how that works out. Let me know if they remain your friends. Let me know if you acquire any injuries and the hospital where you’ll be staying where I don’t send flowers.

Now, you may not find Trump’s comments racist, but federal law does. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has written specific rules to protect people from discrimination from racist assholes like Trump supporters. On its website (scroll to Harassment Based on National Origin), the commission says, “Examples of potentially unlawful conduct include insults, taunting, or ethnic epithets, such as making fun of a person’s foreign accent or comments like, ‘Go back to where you came from.’ whether made by supervisors or co-workers.”

Since members of Congress are Donald Trump’s coworkers, he broke the law by telling four of them to “go back where they came from.” Hmmm…since Trump’s tweetstorms are part of his official duty, maybe his racism is an impeachable offense. How ’bout that.

The United States House of Representatives also finds Trump’s comments racist. Yesterday, the House passed a resolution condemning Trump’s remarks as racist. Every Democrat, a diverse caucus, voted in favor. With the exception of four, the mostly white male Republican caucus voted against. Republicans in Congress, just like Trump cultists, support racism.

If you’re curious about which elected Republicans have publicly criticized Trump’s racist tweet, or done so while also attacking Trump’s Democratic ethnic female targets, have remained quiet, or have defended his racism, The Washington Post has created a handy graphic to keep track. My representative, Rob Wittman, voted in favor of Trump’s racism yet has remained silent on the issue.

At this point, if you’re still supporting Donald Trump, it’s not despite the racism, it’s because of the racism. Congratulations.

Some of my clients may be wishing that I’d move on from this subject and do something nice, maybe something on the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landing which is this weekend. But then again, most of my clients should know how I work by now. I don’t do a lot of nice cartoons. This is about as close as I can get to nice.

Honestly, I’m kinda getting tired of this subject too. But what can I do about it? The president is a racist. I’m not a Republican which means I can’t ignore it.

Junior Birther

Donald Trump is a racist and people who deny that are probably racists themselves.

Trump’s cultists are always asking while never listening to the answers; What makes you think Donald Trump is a racist? For the benefit of those idiots, here we go.

Donald Trump discriminated against black tenants and was sued by Nixon’s Justice Department for refusing to rent to black tenants in 1973. He lied to black tenants about apartments being unavailable. He is old school racist. Part of Trump’s defense of this was that the government was trying to get him to rent to welfare recipients. There’s no better defense of being a racist than a racist defense. Racist, racist, racist.

A former employee of one of Trump’s casinos, before he bankrupted them because he’s a shitty businessman, claims that during the 1980s, whenever Trump and wife number two Ivana came to the casino, that the bosses would “order all black people off the floor” and make them hide in the back…but not in any apartments he was trying to rent.

In 1989, four black teenagers and one Latino teenager, the “Central Park Five,” were accused of attacking and raping a jogger in New York City. Trump ran ads in local papers demanding, “BRING BACK THE DEATH PENALTY. BRING BACK OUR POLICE.” After they spent seven to 13 years in prison, the convictions were vacated based on DNA evidence clearing them and the city paid $41 million in settlement to the teens. In 2016, Trump said he still believes they’re guilty. I don’t care what the Mueller Report says, I still think he committed treason with Russia.

In 1991, the president of Trump Plaza Casino in Atlantic City (which is bankrupt now because Donald Trump is a shitty businessman. Did I already mention that?), John O’Donnell, quoted Trump’s criticism of a black accountant. He claims Trump said, “black counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day. Laziness is a trait in blacks.” Trump denied ever saying it but in an interview with Playboy in 1997 said, “the stuff O’Donnell wrote about me is probably true.” You know, about his comments before he bankrupted his casinos because he’s a shitty businessman.

In congressional testimony in 1993, Trump said some Native American reservations operating casinos shouldn’t be allowed because “they don’t look like Indians to me.” In 2000, he ran a series of ads claiming a tribe had a “record of criminal activity that is well documented.”  He’s a racist who projects. He didn’t want competition for his casinos because it was bad enough he was a shitty businessman on his way to bankrupting those casinos.

In 2005, Trump pitched to NBC The Apprentice: White People vs. Black People. He’s using the same concept today in politics.

He opposed the “Ground Zero Mosque” in 2010. He told David Letterman, “Somebody’s blowing us up.” But, nobody had to blow up Trump’s casinos because he bankrupted them because he’s a shitty businessman.

He launched his presidential campaign calling Mexican immigrants “rapists and murderers.” He said, “they’re bringing crime and they’re bringing drugs.” He made that announcement at Trump Tower instead of one of his casinos because he bankrupted them because he’s a shitty businessman. Was that one too many? Overkill? I’ll stop now. Promise.

He called for a ban on all Muslims. This was before he targeted specific nations. He started with “all Muslims.” He also called for surveillance on all mosques in this country.

He said a judge wasn’t qualified to oversee the Trump University lawsuit because of his Mexican heritage and membership in a Latino lawyers association. Paul Ryan, who later endorsed Trump and became his butt boy said that’s “the textbook definition of a racist comment.” Of course, that Trump University is now defunct because it was a scam and Donald Trump is a shitty businessman (What? It wasn’t a casino).

He tweeted a picture of Hillary Clinton with a pile of money and a Star of David.

He’s repeatedly called Senator Elizabeth Warren “Pocahontas.”

He’s carried on attacks against black NFL players for protesting police violence and racism. Trump once tried to purchase an NFL team but they wouldn’t let him in the club because he’s a con artist and a shitty…OK.

He said people who came to the U.S. “all have AIDS.” He said people from Nigeria would “never go back to those huts” once they saw America. He referred to Haiti and African nations as “shithole countries.”

Who can forget that Trump defended the Nazis who marched in Charlottesville chanting “Jews will not replace us” and “blood and soil” and also killed a woman?

And then there’s birtherism. Trump was perhaps the biggest advocate for the conspiracy theory that Obama was not born in the United States. He even claimed he sent investigators to Hawaii to look into Obama’s birth certificate. He even argued that Obama wasn’t a good enough student to have gotten into Columbia or Harvard Law School. But, Obama never once bankrupted a casino because he’s a shitty businessman (You knew it was coming).

Donald Trump is a racist. He’s also spawned a racist and he couldn’t have picked a better name for his racist spawn than Donald Trump Jr. Bernie Sanders tweeted, “Trump Jr. is a racist too.  Shocker.”

Last week, racists picked up the birther mantle and started using it against California Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris. The senator’s father is from Jamaica and her mother is from India. Harris identifies as black. If you look at her, you too would probably describe her as black.

Some critics on social media claim she’s unfairly portraying herself as African American. Others have taken it further and claimed she’s not black enough and not even an American.

One racist goober tweeted that she’s not “an American black.” Guess which high-profile racist retweeted that? Yup. Trump Jr. picked up his daddy’s racist birther campaign and added to the tweet, “Is this true? Wow.” Yeah, wow what a racist. He later deleted the tweet, most likely because it reveals he’s a racist.

First off, “is this true?” How in any way can it be “true” that she’s not a black American? She’s black, right? She’s an American, right? Yes and yes. Second, why take issue with her describing herself as “African” American or simply just a “black” American? If this makes a difference to you, you’re probably a racist. By the way, your dad paints himself orange.

Some of these idiots are even referring to her as an “anchor baby” because she was born to immigrants, in California, by the way. If that’s the case, wouldn’t Donald Trump Sr. also be an anchor baby since his mom was an immigrant and his father was born in Germany (he wasn’t actually born in Germany but the irony of Trump lying about that is so rich)? Maybe someone should ask Trumpy Jr. where his grandfather was born. By the way, Grandpappy Fred was also a racist. He was so racist that Woodie Guthrie wrote a song about this. It goes like this, “This land is your land, this land is our land, Fred Trump is a racist, he doesn’t want black people on this land.” It was a hit.

I’m waiting for them to accuse Harris of being born in Uganda. Maybe they’ll confuse Senator Kamala Harris with that old wrestler from back in the 80s/90s, Kamala the Ugandan Giant, except he was actually born in Mississippi (I found that out when I met him at a photo op at an elementary school in Mississippi back in the 90s. Nice guy. He never bankrupted any casinos).

Black, African American, or Jamaican-Indian American, whatever…Kamala Harris is an American. She’s just as much of an American as I am (born in Texas, thank you), Donald Trump Sr. and Donald Trump Jr. Cory Booker tweeted, “Kamala Harris doesn’t have shit to prove.”

He’s right. Senator Harris does not have shit to prove to Trump, Don Jr., the assorted birther racists on social media, to you or to me. But Donald Trump and dumbfuck Jr, they need to prove they’re not racists.

To convince me they’re not racists, I’m going to need to see a certificate.

Focus On Hate And Fear


cjones11042018

Donald Trump is hoping his racist ad accusing Democrats of allowing a Mexican to murder two cops will distract voters from the fact that a Republican president incited a white supremacist to murder eleven American Jews.

Trump’s main concern with the synagogue murders and the mailing of pipe bombs by a lunatic in a van covered with pro-Trump stickers is that it hurt Republicans’ “momentum” going into the election. In an attempt to recover, Trump has returned to lying, fear mongering, and tearing at racial divides with demagoguery.

A web video produced for the Trump campaign features Luis Bracamontes, a Mexican man who had previously been deported but returned to the United States and was convicted in February in the slaying of two California deputies. The video blames Democrats for allowing him into the country to murder. The video shows a grinning Bracamontes saying, “I’m going to kill more cops soon,” and a caption flashes on the screen reading, “Democrats let him into our country. Democrats let him stay.”

Since this a product of the Trump campaign, it’s a lie. Bracamontes came into the country during the George W. Bush administration.

The ad recalls the racist Willie Horton ad supporters of George H.W. Bush ran in 1988 that was devastating to the Michael Dukakis campaign. The ad showed a nasty stereotype of a dangerous black criminal, the likes of which a President Dukakis would allow to rape your wife, daughter, and probably clog your toilet. It was so racist that most Republicans said, “what’s so racist about it?”

The Bush campaign attempted to distance itself from the ad. In contrast, the racist web video about scary Mexicans was produced by the Trump campaign. It makes you pine for the days of yesteryear when Republicans at least pretended they weren’t racist troglodytes like Steve King.

Iowa Representative King is a white supremacist who gets real testy and will blow his lid when confronted with questions about it. On Thursday, King kicked out a constituent and college student who dared to ask him how his views on immigrants are different from the Pittsburgh synagogue shooter (Spoiler: They’re not). He kicked the student out of the room after accusing him of being an “ambusher.”

King is so racist that the racist GOP rebuked him this week. Land O’ Lakes and Intel have both said they’ll no longer support him financially. You don’t want him using your butter when he’s buttering up to Nazis.

King visited a far-right party with ties to Nazis during a trip to Austria. In the past, he’s retweeted Nazis. He once attacked immigrants by saying, “We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies.”

Last month, King endorsed a Toronto mayoral candidate who appeared on a neo-Nazi podcast around the Charlottesville rally and later publicly recited the world’s most popular white supremacist slogan that I had just had to look up. The slogan is, “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.” I counted and, yep. Fourteen words.

Steve King and Donald Trump are nationalists. They’re also white nationalists. They bolster themselves by striking fear into their base by lying about minorities. The America white nationalists desire is not the future most of us want for our children. We want a future that is better for all our children. King and Trump only care about the future of white children.

As for the short-term future, you can expect more lies, hatred, and racism over the next few days before Tuesday. Don’t stand downwind.

It’s The Great Racist Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!


cjones10262018

There’s something seriously wrong in this nation when the guy throwing about the word “socialism” to scare people define himself as a nationalist.

In the past, Trump said he didn’t want to use the word “nationalist” as he thought the “Trump brand” was a stronger label. Voting for a label instead of a leader is scary by itself, but this is how Trump sees himself, even after becoming president.

But, last night in Houston at one of his hate rallies, with extra hate because Ted Cruz was there, he finally defined himself as a nationalist. And to think, we had tiki torch Nazis marching in the streets before this. Steve Bannon is so happy.

Today, Trump said it’s not a code for “white” nationalist, and that he’s unfamiliar with that term and “nationalist” is a word that hasn’t been used much. Really?

It’s not just a word, but an ideology that’s been used by every dictator, strongman, and authoritarian throughout history, with the first coming to mind being Adolf Hitler. It’s always accompanied by a fear campaign of “us vs. them.” In Trump’s case, brown people.

At this point I have to wonder, when do these people just openly admit they’re Nazis?

Personally, I’d rather be a socialist than a nationalist.

Buh Bye, Bannon


cjones08222017

The narcissistic uncontrollable racist has been kicked out of the White House. No, not that one. Calm down. The other racists in the White House. OK, one of the other racists in the White House. Steve Bannon is out.

Anthony Scaramucci said in an interview that he didn’t realize was an interview, that Steve Bannon was “sucking his own cock.” Of course, Bannon doesn’t have the physical or flexible capabilities to do that (I doubt he can bend over to tie his own shoes), but he was fully able to fuck himself.

So, how did Steve Bannon fuck himself? In a White House with a higher turnover rate than Gatehouse Media (newspaper people will get that reference), Bannon upstaged the boss. You don’t upstage the boss when he’s a narcissistic man-baby.

Bannon gave an interview, that he also didn’t realize was an interview, which he initiated with The American Prospect, a progressive publication. In that interview, Bannon said there was no military option to dealing with North Korea. That undercuts what the administration has been saying over the past two weeks.

Bannon also gave comments hoping to use the tragedy in Charlottesville to push his Alt-Right agenda. That would get you fired from any administration except the Trump administration.

What really screwed Bannon were his comments on who HE could replace in the administration, other departments, and taking credit for Trump’s “accomplishments,” whatever the hell those are. You can’t upstage the boss, and you especially can’t make comments alluding to being his puppet master. We all know Putin’s the puppet master.

The White House describes Bannon’s departure as a “mutual decision.” Yeah, if you believe that then I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you. But be warned, there’s a lot of Jews in Brooklyn.

After Trump’s comments on Charlottesville where he equated peace activists with Nazis, he’s losing support in Washington. Republicans have come out against him with three…oh my god, threeo, mentioning him by name. The military has made statements disagreeing with his comments on race. He’s even losing business at his ridiculous golf resorts over the comments. Thankfully for Trump, he still has the racist base of dumbasses to rely on. But, does he?

There are reports that Bannon will now be pissing in the White House instead of pissing out. A source close to Bannon told one outlet to prepare for “Bannon the Barbarian.” Breitbart’s editor tweeted out that this is “war.” He ever hash-tagged “war,” which is serious.

There were signs that Trump was getting tired of Bannon. New Chief of Staff, General John Kelly doesn’t like the lunacy that Bannon’s backstabbing brings. Trump referred to him earlier in the week as “Mr. Bannon,” which is something he likes to do when he pretends he hardly knows someone, like Paul Manafort or Carter Page.

One problem still exists and that’s the fact Donald Trump is still in the White House. Bannon may have encouraged Trump’s racism, but Trump is old-school racist. He was piloting the birther campaign long before he brought Steve Bannon aboard his hate train. Trump will continue to enable and connect with Nazis without Bannon.

Now all the racist heavy lifting will be left to Trump, Stephen Miller, and Sebastian Gorka. Though it may be a challenge, I believe in them. They can do it!

I want to thank everyone who has donated in the past. Your support helps me continue creating cartoons and columns with a little less stress in my life.

The Crazies’ Fight Against Racism


cjones05052015

Race issues, inequality, discrimination, profiling, police harassment, racial slurs, must all be a new thing in this country that’s only been here for about seven years. I mean, that’s the impression one gets if you listen to conservatives blame Obama for anything racial.

Anytime the president responds to a race issue, like the weekly cop shooting of an unarmed black man, conservatives say he’s “race baiting.” Race baiting is when you’re stirring up trouble by talking about race. In the Civil Rights Era they called them “agitators.”

The conservative and ultra right wing response to race issues is (are you ready?) to never talk about it. That must be it. The only time they actually confront it is when they accuse a liberal of race baiting.

When a cop shoots an unarmed black man, they either don’t say anything or they get upset only when the cop is facing charges. Think about it. They never talk about race unless it’s time to defend racists and to call someone a thug.

Hmmm. Maybe that’s real “Thuganomics.”

I really get tired of white people only talking about race when cops are arrested or there’s a riot. If you’re not black how can you say there isn’t a problem? How can you say racism doesn’t exist in American anymore (and yes, many actually say that)? I hear them say all the time that they don’t understand. If you don’t understand then maybe you should stop talking about it.

By the way, the quote in the cartoon is actually from Obama’s speech on Monday.

Update:

Last week Michelle Obama was the commencement speaker at Tuskegee University where she talked about how she and Obama are treated differently for being black. She brought up a New Yorker magazine cover that depicted her with a machine gun and a huge afro doing the “terrorist fist jab” with the president.

Conservatives are upset. They’re calling her a racist for talking about race. They say she’s full of it, she’s lying and she’s not being treated unfairly. If you see these stories at World Net Daily, the Daily Caller and Breitbart and scroll down to the comments you’ll see readers call her “Moochelle” and a “tranny” and then make comments about her rear end. But yeah, she’s lying about the way she’s treated.

Actually the comments get uglier and racier.

Yesterday someone I know posted a link on Facebook for his “black” friend who he says lives in the realm of “whitey is a racist.” Well buddy, if you’re his only “white” friend who refers to him as your “black” friend, I can totally understand why he thinks whitey is a racist.

I mentioned before how a lot of conservatives don’t get irony or hypocrisy. They’re also about as good as realizing they don’t have a sense of humor about as much as they realize they’re racist.

Maybe I should have made the Obama in this cartoon Michelle.
