Republicans

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.

Rudy Tooty Colludy Subpoodied


CjonesRBG01222022

The January 6 Committee has issued subpoenas for Jenna Ellis, Boris Epshteyn (you can’t have a good Trump controversy without a Boris), Sidney Powell, and Rudy Giuliani. This should be fun.

Jenna Ellis drafted a memo on how then-President (sic) Trump could invalidate the election results by exploiting an obscure law. Sidney Powell worked on election lawsuits, spread wild conspiracy theories about voting machines, China, George Soros, the Clintons, and Hugo Chavez, all while raising money on the Big Lie. And Boris chased down false allegations of voter fraud in Arizona and Nevada and worked with the Trump administration (sic) to delay the certification of Biden’s election victory. But Rudy….oh, Rudy. Sweet, sweet Rudy.

Rudy Giuliani, who some still call “America’s Mayor,” is an international embarrassment. Being a Trump sycophant is bad enough, but to go from America’s Mayor to a ridiculous lying farty Trump poodle with leaky hair that people are laughing at is something totally original.

Rudy Giuliani was an embarrassment making contradictory claims on CNN and Fox News. He eventually made his lies exclusive to Fox News as CNN anchors kept asking him real questions, like, “Did you just admit to something you had just denied?”. Fun stuff.

Remember when Trump claimed he had no knowledge about hush payments to porn star Stormy Daniels who he had raw-dogged in a Las Vegas hotel room after she spanked him with a rolled-up magazine that had his daughter’s photo on it, and then Rudy went on Hannity and told him the president (sic) paid back Cohen after he had “funneled” the money to Stormy Daniels? Remember Hannity’s face when learning this information after previously using his show to declare how there had never been any hush payments? Remember Hannity’s face when he asked, “funneled”?

Remember when Trump said there was no quid pro quo by withholding military aid from Ukraine until they announced they were investigating Joe Biden, and then a tape came out with Giuliani offering Ukraine officials a quid pro quo and that their president could be invited to the United States and have a meeting with Trump if the investigations were announced? Good times.

After the election, Giuliani brought failed lawsuits and hearings to state legislators to overturn the election. He advised Trump to seize voting machines. He spread lies about Dominion Voting Systems, the company that provided the voting machines, who are now suing Giuliani for billions. Yes, billions with a “B”.

Remember when Giuliani scheduled a press conference at the Four Seasons Hotel in Pennsylvania, but fucked up and scheduled it in the parking lot at Four Seasons Total Landscaping, which was next to a sex shop? Remember how he went ahead and held the press conference anyway?

Remember the press conference where Rudy’s hair started leaking black goo?

Remember the legislative hearing when Rudy was farty?

Remember the hearing before the Michigan legislature where he brought a witness he had failed to vet beforehand? Remember how his unvetted witness made wild claims about voter fraud she never witnessed?

Remember all the times Rudy spoke before courts and legislatures despite failing to research what he was talking about?

Remember when Rudy invited what he thought was an underage girl into his private hotel room “for a drink,” but was instead punked by Borat? Great times.

Remember when Rudy called for “trial by combat”? You should remember that because it was at the Trump rally on January 6, 2020, right before Trump’s white nationalist goon squad attacked the United States Capitol in an attempt to overturn a democratically-held election to install Trump as a fascist dictator. Again, good times.

Rudy sucks at using phones. Remember the time he butt-dialed a reporter who got to overhear Rudy ranting about the Bidens being corrupt? Remember when he did it again to the same reporter, laying out a strategy to raise money for his “Investigations,” saying, “The problem is we need some money”?

Remember when Rudy called Senator Tommy Tuberville on January 6 in an attempt to block certification of the election and left a voicemail, except he accidentally called Senator Mike Lee? Remember on the recording when he said about the election certification, “We need you, our Republican friends, to try to just slow it down.”?

Remember that Rudy actually owns a cybersecurity firm but that he once needed an Apple employee to help him unlock his phone.

Remember when Rudy’s two associates, Lev and Igor (you can’t have a good Trump controversy without an Igor) who were helping him conduct “investigations” into Joe and Hunter Biden, were caught funneling Russian money to Republican candidates in the 2018 midterms?

Remember when Rudy had his law license suspended by the state of New York for making “demonstrably false and misleading statements” in courts?

Robert Costello, Rudy’s lawyer, called the subpoena “political theater” and said Giuliani would be covered by executive privilege, should Trump invoke it, as well as attorney-client privilege. But, Donald Trump can’t cite executive privilege because he’s not president (sic) anymore. Also, being an attorney for a criminal doesn’t protect you when you’re also his co-conspirator. Go ask Michael Cohen about that one.

Rudy’s shithead attorney also said, “They’re not going to charge Rudy Giuliani with anything, and they’re also not going to get any information from Rudy Giuliani factually.” Both statements are true. They’re not going to charge Rudy with anything because the January 6 committee can’t charge anyone. They can only refer charges. And, like shithead attorney said, the committee will not get anything “factually” out of Rudy because Rudy will lie his little greasy balls off. All they’re going to get from Rudy Giuliani will be farts and lies and lies and farts.

Remember when Rudy Giuliani was a respectable United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York? Remember when Rudy Giuliani was a respectable mayor of New York City? Remember when Rudy Giuliani had a license to practice law? Remember when Rudy Giuliani was not an international laughingstock?

Trump Booster For DeSantis


CjonesRGB01212022

Donald Trump is mad. Sure, he’s always mad, but this occasion is interesting.

We’ve seen Trump hate on Republicans before. He’s had horrible things to say about John McCain, George W. Bush, George H. W. Bush, Jeb Bush (he hates Bushes), Mitt Romney, Liz Cheney, Adam Kinzinger, and all Republicans who don’t kiss his ass.

During the 2016 Republican primaries, he attacked all the Republicans running against him. He said Rick Perry should have to take an IQ test to qualify for the debates. He attacked Ben Carson, insinuating he had a pathological disease that made him lose his temper and try to stab people. He called Bobby Jindal a “lightweight,” and Jindal responded by saying Trump is a “substance-free narcissist who looks like he’s got a squirrel sitting on his head.” He called Marco Rubio “Little Marco.” He gave out Lindsey Graham’s phone number at a rally. Trump called Rand Paul a “fake conservative” who is “truly weird,” and a “spoiled brat without a properly functioning brain.” He insulted Carly Fiorina’s looks by saying, “Look at that face.” He said Jeb Bush had “low energy.” He attacked the looks of Ted Cruz’s wife, suggested his father had a part in killing John F. Kennedy, and called Ted “Lyin’ Ted.”

Excluding John Kasich and Jeb Bush, most of those people Trump attacked became his ass kissers and sycophants. It’s weird. But now, instead of turning enemies into friends, Trump is about to turn a sycophant into an enemy. Trump is threatened by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

Ron DeSantis is a horrible right-wing goon of a governor. He’s anti-mandates. He’s anti-face masks. He’s anti-science. He loves the racist dog whistles. He signed a bill live on Fox News that makes it legal to run over Black Lives Matter protesters. The racists love him. When he ran for governor, he aired ads telling assuring voters he was a huge Trumper and no one in Florida was a bigger MAGAt then he. He was even teaching his baby how to “build a wall” out of Legos in the ad. It was sick.

Trump is upset that DeSantis won’t publicly bow down before him. DeSantis is a presidential hopeful and he’ll run for the office someday. Trump is concerned it’ll be in 2024. Trump hasn’t declared yet but he wants DeSantis to declare he won’t run if Trump does.

It’s very early for this kind of stuff, but Trump is polling way ahead of DeSantis, but being the insecure baby that he is, Trump is scared.

Axios published a story saying Trump is privately telling people at Mar-a-Lago that DeSantis is “dull” and lacking in “personal charisma.” The story made its way to the Drudge Report. Before you know it, it’ll be on Fox News. It’s already on One America News Network but nobody watches that.

Trump has publicly admitted he received a booster to the coronavirus and attacked “gutless” politicians who won’t reveal their booster status. Keep in mind, Trump refused to do a public service announcement or have his vaccine injected on camera because he puts himself before the rest of the nation. While talking to One America News Network, he said, “You got to say it. Whether you had it or not, say it.” It was a swipe at DeSantis who has not “said it” and won’t say he won’t run for president if Trump runs.

During an interview on a right-wing fucknut podcast, DeSantis said he regretted not pushing back more aggressively when Trump advised Americans to stay home in the early days of the coronavirus pandemic. He didn’t mention Trump by name, but who else was president (sic) in 2020?

DeSantis then blamed Dr. Anthony Fauci for convincing Trump to lock down the nation, which is framing Trump as a baby who can’t make his own decisions.

A lot of Republicans, including DeSantis, claim the media is inventing this feud and for us not to “take the bait.” But if there is a real feud, we’ll know it soon enough because Donald Trump is not good at keeping things to himself. Personally, I’m looking forward to this and will be stocking up on popcorn.

DeSantis is Trump’s Mini-Me. I don’t know if anyone has kissed Trump’s ass more than he has, other than Mike Pence and all those Republicans I mentioned above who were Trump’s targets in 2016.

If Trump and DeSantis engage in a contest of who’s more MAGA or better for the nation, my concern is which one is worse for the nation. They’re both horrible vile human-being-type things.

Maybe Florida can’t, but America can do better than what the cult gives us.

Youngkin, Day One


CjonesRGB01192022

Glenn Youngkin made sure on his very first day as Virginia’s governor (ack) that we’d know just how horrible and inept he’s going to be.

On his first day as governor (ack) of Virginia, Youngkin signed 11 executive orders with one banning the teaching of “divisive concepts.” What are “divisive concepts”? Anything that scares white conservatives. What they’re aiming at here is Critical Race Theory, which Glenn Youngkin can’t even explain to you less enough, find one example of it actually being taught in a Virginia public school. But banning something that doesn’t exist makes it look like you accomplished something and got rid of it. Good job, Governor (ack) Fucknut. I have another idea. Let’s ban wooly mammoths from show-and-tell day.

Let’s go over it again. Critical Race Theory is centered around the idea that American society is presently impacted by the legacy of slavery and how that legacy factors into laws in the United States, business, culture, education, economics, opportunities, and all aspects of American culture. It’s less of a theory and more of an actual thing. Republicans claim this is a myth and to prove it, they ban it from being taught. How many times now have I told you Republicans don’t get irony? It’s like punching anyone who accuses you of being a violent person. Many states have banned the teaching of Critical Race Theory in the same legislative sessions they were crafting laws making it harder for black people to vote. Maybe we should teach irony in public schools…or in this case, private schools.

By the way, most private schools were founded during desegregation so rich white kids wouldn’t have to go to school with all the incoming black kids. It’s still the only real reason for private schools. Fight me on that.

Governor (ack) Youngkin also banned mandates requiring face masks to be worn in public schools. For the record, Critical Race Theory is not a real thing in public schools while Omicron is.

Governor (ack) Youngkin has one little problem with his mandate ban. That problem is, he can’t ban face masks mandates in public schools. There is a state law that says schools should adhere, “to the maximum extent practicable,” to any currently applicable mitigation strategies outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Guess what the CDC advises with face mask mandates in public schools? The CDC guidelines include mask mandates for public schools.

Governor Youngkin (ack), being an idiot, has actually publicly supported this law by citing the part that “requires schools to offer full-time, in-person learning with limited exceptions.” He just didn’t read the second half of it.

Youngkin told an interviewer last week, “The way that Virginia works is that the governor cannot ban mask mandates. Schools make those decisions. We will in fact, then, also make sure that schools allow parents to exercise their rights for what’s best for their children, to opt-out of those mandates.” Uh…you know it’s not a mandate when you take away the mandate, right?

Republicans claim President Biden and Vice-President Harris are confusing but spend five seconds talking to this guy. Also, why should it be a parent’s decision that someone else’s kid gets covid? What’s next? Republican laws that make it easier for your kid to take a gun to school to kill someone else’s kid? Oh, wait.

Our new governor (ack) doesn’t know shit about education or science, so naturally, his first two executive orders were on schools and science.

The school systems in Arlington, Alexandria, and Fairfax are telling parents to ignore the new governor (Ugh) and that face mask mandates still stand. Ignoring idiots is good guidance. Maybe the CDC should issue something on that.

Youngkin is vowing to use state resources to attack schools that are trying to protect their students. This is reminiscent of when Attorney General (ack) Ken Cuccinelli used state resources to fight universities studying climate change. Enough with these goon agendas.

The General Assembly may change the law that requires schools to follow CDC guidelines, but the governor (ack) is trying to change the law all by himself with an executive order on his very first day in office (ack). Did I mention this was on his first day in office? It was on his first day in office our new governor (ack) tried to delete a law while creating more dangerous environments for our children. It’s going to be a long four years.

Congratulations, Virginia. You made a goon governor (ack).

Give Us The Ballot


CjonesRGB01152022

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell lives in an alternate reality where principles, hypocrisy, irony, and lying your ass off only apply to Democrats. If a Republican changes his mind and does the exact thing he railed on and on against previously, then you’re not supposed to remember that. In fact, they laugh about it. Gotcha!

Currently, the Senate is split between Republicans and Democrats, 50/50. Democrats control the chamber with the vote of the vice-president, Kamala Harris. But to pass anything, you need more than 51 votes. To pass any legislation, like Build Back Better or the Voting Rights Act, you need 60 votes. President Biden and Majority Leader Chuck Schumer want to change this. McConnell warns that changing this will destroy the Senate or some shit like that. The guy is adamantly against a 51 vote for anything…except for giving someone a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court.

McConnell is against changing Senate rules except when he’s for it. He changed the rules from a 60-votes-requirement to confirm a Supreme Court justice to a mere 51. Do you know how many of Trump’s three justices got 60 votes? None, because it’s really hard for lunatics, religious zealots, and rapists to get 60 votes for a lifetime appointment to the highest court in the land. If a person can’t get 60 votes, then that person doesn’t belong on the highest court in the nation. The judges of Top Chef are stricter with their voting requirements than Republicans are for lifetime appointments.

Donald Trump had three opportunities to nominate someone who was not a maniac, and three times he failed. Donald Trump shouldn’t be allowed to make his own selection from McDonald’s kids’ menu less enough three Supreme Court appointments. Call me a radical, but I believe every appointment Donald Trump made that’s still in office should be removed. Vladimir Putin shouldn’t have any influence on our government. At the very least, those three fuckers Trump and McConnell put on the Supreme Court will forever have asterisks by their names.

Also, the majority of this nation was not in favor of these three appointments. A minority of voters put Trump in the White House and Republicans in charge of the Senate. Now, three people have lifetime appointments on the Supreme Court courtesy of the whims of the most ignorant, dumbest, and racist people in this nation. This is like when you and your spouse have to eat Burger King because your kid in the backseat won’t stop screaming for nuggies.

McConnell pretends that Senate rules are sacred…until he needs to change one. In 2016, he refused to give President Barack Obama’s last Supreme Court pick a hearing based on the bullshit argument that Supreme Court justices can’t be confirmed during an election year. Then in less than two months before election day in 2020, he rammed through the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett, a true religious cultist onto the Supreme Court.

People like Joe Manchin warn that if Democrats change the filibuster rule now, then Republicans will change rules too if they resume control. But you don’t even have to be a good student of history to know they’re going to do that anyway. Duh. Democrats have got to stop letting Republicans fuck them. Look what they did with the Supreme Court.

During President Biden’s speech on voting rights, he compared those who oppose election reform to believers in racial segregation and rebels in the Civil War. He compared Republicans to Jefferson Davis, Bull Connor, and George Wallace. Despite it being a very accurate portrayal, or because of that, McConnell got his Depends into a twist and referred to President Biden’s speech as a “rant” that was “incoherent, incorrect, and beneath his office”.

Then McConnell accused President Biden of being “unpresidential” which is very interesting coming from the guy who slobbered all over the shoes of Mr. Grab-Them-By-The-Pussy for four years.

Yesterday, I saw a cartoon from a conservative using Dr. Martin Luther King Jr to make an argument for voter suppression. I always find it interesting when racists quote or use MLK for their racism as if they actually support what Dr. King stood for. But then again, they call themselves Christians while supporting throwing immigrant babies into cages.

The thing is, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr never supported voter suppression. This seems like a dumb thing to have to point out, but when racists co-opt a civil rights leader for their racist policies, I’m gonna have to point it out. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr spent his entire life fighting for voting rights and equality. There was this whole big thing about it in the 1950s and 1960s. I swear. But, Republicans, you don’t have to take it from me. Take it from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

In his speech, “Give us the Ballot,” Dr. King said, “The denial of this sacred right is a tragic betrayal of the highest mandates of our democratic tradition. And so our most urgent request to the president of the United States and every member of Congress is to give us the right to vote.”

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr argued for the ballot, not for ballots being taken away. He didn’t want laws that banned people from handing out water to voters in line. He didn’t want a law where legislatures can overrule election boards. He didn’t want laws that allowed legislatures to overturn an election if they don’t like the results. He didn’t campaign for new laws that made it harder for non-white voters to vote. Not even once. He never said, “I have a dream where all ballot boxes are removed from black-majority voting precincts and all dropoffs are banned on Sundays. And he never said we need “voting integrity” based on a bunch of bullshit lies spread by Rudy Giuliani.

I believe every Republican in the Senate should read Dr. King’s speech again. Wait? Again? I mean, for the first time.

Patriotic Cuddle Bear


CjonesRGB01102022

Ted Cruz is a coward. He can’t defend his wife. He can’t defend his state. He can’t defend his country.

A man attacks Ted Cruz’s wife. What does Ted Cruz do? He becomes a sycophant for that man.

His state is ravaged by a winter freeze leaving millions without power and killing hundreds. Ted flees Texas to Cancun where it’s nice and warm and there are beach resorts and daiquiris.

Ted Cruz’s country is attacked. Instead of defending his country, Ted supports the terrorists.

Sometimes Ted pretends he’s tough. Like when Donald Trump attacked his wife, he called Trump a sniveling coward. Trump also accused his father of murder. Later, Ted becomes a surrogate and defender of Trump. We’re not supposed to remember Trump attacked Ted’s family.

When Ted fled Texas for a beach resort in Cancun, he went back to Texas immediately and went into the GOP Photo-Op Recovery Program, making sure the public saw him in his Texas-flag face mask while helping put cases of water into car trunks. Later, he blamed his daughters for the Cancun trip with the logic that a good father takes his daughters to Cancun when they plead for him to do so.

Even though Ted Cruz helped the effort to block certification of the electoral college, won by President Joe Biden, he has called the attack on the Capitol one committed by terrorists.

And even when Ted occasionally gets something right, which is rarer than a woman looking at Ted and saying, “Mmmm, I wants me a piece of that,” he quickly backtracks. Donald Trump is a sniveling coward and Ted shouldn’t have backed away from that. But just like Trump, Ted is a sniveling coward and that goes with his smarmy condescending icky creepy personality. Ted will grovel and kiss any ass he believes will help him become president, even the asses of the vilest, like Donald Trump and Tucker Carlson. On Thursday night, Ted Cruz groveled to Tucker Carlson.

The entire nation calls Ted Cruz a liar but it’s politically damaging when Tucker Carlson calls you one, even though he himself is a liar.

Ted Cruz has called the terrorists “terrorists” multiple times. But after doing it again earlier in the week, Tucker Carlson got upset at Ted for calling terrorists “terrorists.”

Ted Cruz went on Tucker’s show and said his “terrorists” comments were “sloppy” and “frankly dumb.” That could be a good defense for Cruz because a lot of his comments are sloppy and dumb. But here, Ted was quibbling.

Tucker was upset over the white nationalists who tried to overturn the election to install Donald Trump as a fascist dictator and said to Ted, “You told that lie on purpose, and I’m wondering why you did.”

This is when Ted quibbled. Lying Ted said, “What I was referring to are the limited number of people who engaged in violent attacks against police officers. I think you and I both agree that if you assault a police officer, you should go to jail. I wasn’t saying the thousands of peaceful protesters supporting Donald Trump are somehow terrorists. I wasn’t saying the millions of patriots across the country supporting Trump are terrorists.”

That’s like saying only the pilots of the planes were terrorists on 9/11. The other guys were peaceful protesters. Osama bin Laden isn’t a terrorist because he wasn’t on the plane. He was only the mastermind. He only sent the terrorists.

The FBI defines terrorism as: “violent, criminal acts committed by individuals and/or groups to further ideological goals stemming from domestic influences, such as those of a political, religious, social, racial, or environmental nature.”

The people who attacked the Capitol, and not just the Capitol Police, were trying to destroy our democracy. They were trying to stop a process mandated by the United States Constitution. They were trying to overturn a legal election. They were trying to install Donald Trump as an unelected dictator. They were attempting a coup. Everything they did fits the definition of terrorism.

Ted Cruz was right and he shouldn’t have backed down, especially to the likes of a lying coward like Tucker Carlson.

Ted Cruz went on to say, “So, of course, it would be ridiculous for me to be saying that the people standing up and protesting to follow the law were somehow terrorists. I was talking about people who commit violence against cops.” Everyone who entered that building on January 6, 2021, to “protest” the legal election was committing an act of terrorism. Everyone who broke windows, stole property, and defecated and urinated on the floors and hallways were terrorists. Ashli Babbitt was a terrorist.

Ted continued to grovel and said, “It was a mistake to say that yesterday and the reason is what you just said, which is we have now had a year of Democrats and the media twisting words and trying to say that all of us are terrorists. Trying to say you are a terrorist, I am a terrorist.” But, Ted. You and Tucker do support terrorists. Everyone who uses the word “protests” or “tourists” to describe the events on January 6, 2021, supports terrorists. Donald Trump supports terrorists.

Tucker spent the entire segment insulting Ted Cruz and calling him a liar. Ted continued to grovel while the dangling little dots that vaguely resemble testicles receded into his body.

Tucker Carlson ended his segment by telling Ted Cruz, “I guess I just don’t believe you, and I mean that with respect.”

That was another lie because nobody respects Ted Cruz.

Cakes And Coups


CjonesRGB01052022

As we approach the first anniversary of the Trump insurrection that occurred on January 6, 2021, let’s reflect on the wisdom of Courtney Love who wrote the lyrics, “I want to be the girl with the most cake.”

Those words are in the song “Doll Parts” which is on the 1994 Hole album “Live Through This.” Someone who feels inadequate is a person who wants the largest slice of cake at their birthday party. Even though it’s their party, they need the largest slice, not because they’re hungry for cake, but to show everyone else how special they are. Donald Trump has been known to get the most cake at his parties. It’s well documented that at dinners and other events with Donald Trump, everyone is served one scoop of ice cream while Trump is served two. Keep in mind that Donald Trump is a grown man in his 70s and not an insecure child…he just behaves that way. He needs everyone to notice he has more scoops than they do because he’s the biggest baby.

And on January 6, 2021, failing to get all the cake for himself, Donald Trump tried to throw it out. All right-wing white fundamentalist Christians are babies, but Trump is the biggest baby. As he celebrates January 6, there will probably be a Nazi jumping out of it.

A lot of Republicans are still claiming the attack on the United States Capitol that day was a false flag operation committed by Democrats and the FBI. Some say it was Trump supporters who were goaded by Democrats, the FBI, and Antifa. On the day of the attack, Trump supporters on social media were claiming it was all Antifa while simultaneously celebrating it. I’ve had some Trump turds tell me they’ll celebrate January 6 like it’s their own Fourth of July.

Make no mistake about it, the attack on the United States capitol was an attempt to overturn an election they lost and install Donald Trump as a fascist unelected dictator.

The attack on January 6 was a coup attempt by supporters of Donald Trump.

The attack on January 6 was an insurrection by supporters of Donald Trump.

The attack on January 6 by Trump supporters was a terrorist attack.

The attack on January 6 by Trump supporters was conducted by white nationalists.

The attack on January 6 was sedition and an attack on our nation by supporters of Donald Trump.

The attack on January 6 was an attempt to destroy democracy by supporters of Donald Trump.

The attack on January 6 by Donald Trump supporters was initiated by Donald Trump.

The attack on January 6 by Trump supporters was created from the election lies spread by Donald Trump.

You would think an attack on our nation would warrant an investigation by Congress. The attack in Benghazi did. But Republicans have done everything from voting against investigating it to voting against awarding medals to Capitol Police to trying to put co-conspirators on the committee investigating it.

If Donald Trump and his goons were innocent, they wouldn’t be dragging their feet with these investigations and refusing to cooperate. The hope is that the GOP takes Congress in the midterms and will kill the investigation into their sedition. Are we really on the verge of giving our entire government over to the people who tried to destroy it? Apparently, we are. The network that lies for Trump and gaslights an attack on our nation is number one with viewers.

After Hitler’s Germany declared war on us in 1941, we didn’t turn around and use the next midterms to hand Congress over to Nazis.

The Capitol riot was over the lie that Donald Trump won the election and it was stolen from him. As I just said, that is a lie. Joe Biden won the election. Donald Trump and his supporters scream it’s impossible that he lost because he received 74 million votes, which is the second-largest vote total ever. The problem for them is that Joe Biden won with the largest vote total in history with over 81 million votes. In case you’re a Republican, 81 is more than 74.

Republicans talk like 74 is an amazing accomplishment and that 81 is impossible. They’re also confused as to how Donald Trump could have lost to a non-lunatic like Joe Biden when their candidate is an insane narcissistic racist porn-star humping used car salesman who trashed the economy and ignored a pandemic that killed nearly 400,000 during his watch (MAGAts claim all the deaths under Trump are fabricated but those under Biden are real). C’mon, America. How could you forget all Donald Trump did for you by giving himself a tax cut and grifting off the taxpayers? You ingrates. He played golf for you!

Now, Donald Trump is going to celebrate January 6 by holding a press conference to lie about January 6. He will claim it was a harmless unarmed protest of the election being stolen from him. This is the arsonist celebrating the anniversary of the fire he set.

Trump and his supporters will forever commemorate January 6 as though it’s their Fourth of July, but that’s not fair to the Fourth of July.

The Fourth of July is for patriotism. January 6 is for traitors.

Bluebirds of Crappiness


CjonesRGB01042022

Before you get all excited over Twitter permanently suspending Marjorie Taylor Greene’s personal account, remember that she still has her congressional account. Perhaps the only way to strip her of that is to kick her out of Congress. I apologize for using “strip” and “Marjorie Taylor Greene” in the same sentence. Nobody should have to read that first thing in the morning.

Twitter has a policy it enforces the same way the rest of social media enforces its policies. Sometimes. As someone who’s been slapped around by Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, YouTube, and even LinkedIn of all places, I understand the frustration. Sometimes I’ll have something removed with a message that equates to “you did something bad,” without knowing what bad thing it was I had committed. When social media yells at me, it usually accuses me of hate speech for the act of criticizing hate speech. It’s ironic when a social media platform removes your post waging a battle against hate speech and in doing so, inadvertently protects Nazis. I hope it’s inadvertently. In case you’re a Republican, “inadvertently” means you didn’t mean to do that, which is the opposite of you attempting to destroy democracy.

My posts are usually only removed when I anger the social media gods, with no other repercussions. But I did have a suspension on Facebook for several days because of one cartoon criticizing the Taliban over its treatment of women. Over the following days, several other cartoonists did the same cartoon (while telling me it wasn’t the same cartoon) and Facebook didn’t touch any of those. I guess mine was better. In this case, Facebook protected the Taliban. Of course, during my ban, social media continued to make money off hate groups.

And then there’s Instagram. Ooh, don’t get me started on Instagram. Too late. I’ve started on Instagram. I drew a cartoon comparing the anti-gay policies of the nation of Brunei to Chick-fil-A.
it’s a tiny little oil-rich country on the island of Borneo that’s governed by an absolute Islamic monarchy. Basically, it’s just one guy who collects palaces, Roll Royces, and wives. Chick-fil-A is a chicken restaurant that’s closed on Sundays because it’s controlled by religious zealots who use their chicken profits to fund anti-homosexual hate groups. But I hear they have excellent lemonade. One of these two places created a new law giving a death sentence for committing homosexual acts. I can’t remember which.

I don’t know who I pissed off more, Brunei or the chicken fuckers. But Instagram deleted my account. Now here’s the good part: I appealed and Instagram reversed their decision and told me they had made a mistake. Why, that cartoon wasn’t hate speech after all and they hoped there weren’t any hard feelings. Now here’s the really bad part: They never restored my account. After trying repeatedly to have their platform restore it, I gave up and started a new one (it’s claytoonz2.0). But, my new one only has a teeny-tiny fraction of followers the old one had. My old one had around 7,000 while the new one has 340. Dammit, Robert Reich had shared one of my cartoons from the old account and got me a buttload of followers. How do I convince him to do that again?

Another funny aspect of this is that Instagram is owned by Facebook and there are days one platform is angry with a cartoon while the other doesn’t care. It’s like Mom saying “over my dead body” while Dad says, “sure, go snorkeling with piranhas.” Also, anytime I get a cartoon removed, readers share it and they’re not touched by social media…usually. There have been times a reader told me they got a slap on the wrist for sharing one of my cartoons for criticizing the KKK. Social media is very inconsistent because, throughout all this, Marjorie Taylor Greene has been using social media platforms to spread debunked conspiracy theories like Trump won the election, the white nationalist insurrection for Trump at the Capitol, Covid is a hoax, Jewish space lasers start California wildfires, Matt Gaetz will never be on the registered sex offender list, and that vaccines are killing people.

Twitter has a policy that you can lie four times about Covid-19. After that, anything can happen. Hell, they might let you keep lying. How many lies did Donald Trump tweet before Twitter kicked him off their platform?

How many lies can I tell about Matt Gaetz before I get permanently suspended? Did you know Matt Gaetz’s penis looks like Quagmire from the cartoon Family Guy? Yeah, when it comes out of the zipper, it says “giggity.”

Anyway, the final straw for MTG was that tweeted to her 465,000 followers that vaccines are killing people. She had 465,000 followers? I wonder how many of those were Russian bots.

After receiving the Twitter smackdown, Greene issued a statement saying, “Social media platforms can’t stop the truth from being spread far and wide. Big Tech can’t stop the truth. Communist Democrats can’t stop the truth. I stand with the truth and the people. We will overcome!”

First off, MTG using an MLK statement is so wrong on so many levels. Why do white nationalists love quoting Martin Luther King Jr? You don’t see vegetarians quoting Colonel Sanders (hey, two chicken franchises referenced in one blog. I’ve really been hankering for some fried chicken lately).

Also, white conservative Christians still have this faux victimization going on. From being banned for spreading hate and conspiracy theories on social media to the war on Christmas to being forced to confront their own history of hate and oppression, white folks have it hard. And do you remember how mean everyone was to MTG over her casually screaming at her colleagues through their mail slots?

MTG issued another statement boo-hooing over being suspended by Twitter.

This time, the lunatic posted, “Maxine Waters can go to the streets and threaten violence on Twitter, Kamala and Ilhan can bail out Black Lives Matter terrorists on Twitter, CNN and the rest of the Democrat Propaganda Media can spread Russia collusion lies, and just yesterday the Chief spokesman for terrorist IRGC can tweet mourning Soleimani, but I get suspended for tweeting VAERS statistics. Twitter is an enemy to America and can’t handle the truth. That’s fine, I’ll show America we don’t need them and it’s time to defeat our enemies. They can’t successfully complete a Communist revolution when people tell the truth. Social media platforms can’t stop the truth from being spread far and wide. Big Tech can’t stop the truth. Communist Democrats can’t stop the truth.I stand with the truth and the people. We will overcome! Follow me on GETTR, Telegram, and Gab immediately to continue to hear the truth about the Communist revolution in America.”

That statement was posted on Facebook.

Music note: I turned on the music when I started coloring the birds because that shit was tedious. I listened to Nirvana and Keith Whitley. Weird combo, right?

Coming In Hot


CNN01022021

Here’s your cartoon for this week’s CNN Opinion newsletter. Please sign up to get these in your inbox every Sunday. 

I was supposed to take four weeks off from cartooning for the CNN Opinion newsletter, but I got an email on Christmas day asking me to come back a week early. I was more than happy to. Thank you, Yaffa.

And yes, this is the second time I’ve used the film “Don’t Look Up” for a cartoon. But, so what? I’m glad I got to use it in a different way. The first was for my clients. Funny thing, this cartoon was written and sketched out weeks ago before the film and it was sitting in my Maybe folder for the right time…and then the film came out and I changed it up for CNN. The only difference from the first version is that nobody was saying “don’t look up.”

Don’t Look Up


CjonesRGB12292021

Did you miss me? I took a couple days off through Christmas. Do you remember the last time a day went by, less enough two when you didn’t get a new cartoon from me? I can’t. Instead of drawing cartoons, I hung out by myself during Christmas weekend eating Chinese food and watching movies.

I can’t remember everything I watched but what stood out for me was Klaus, a Boy Called Christmas, Hawkeye (the Marvel series), Encanto, Love Hard, and Don’t Look Up.

Don’t Look Up has been the subject of a lot of conversations since it premiered on Netflix. It’s trending on Twitter. There’s a lot of debate, not just over the message in it, but whether it’s a good movie or not. It seems that most critics hate it. But what do critics know?

If you haven’t seen it or heard about it, Don’t Look Up is a comedy on Netflix that is a parody of a lot of the shit we’ve lived through over the past few years.

I’m going to try not to give any spoilers, but if you haven’t seen the movie and want to be totally surprised and entertained, don’t read the rest of the blog:

Leonardo DiCaprio stars as an astronomer and he and his grad student, played by Jennifer Lawrence, discover a planet-killing comet headed directly to Earth and giving our planet six months before its doomsday. The world reacts with indifference.

Meryl Streep is president and after being informed of this planet-killing comet, she wants to “sit tight and assess.” She talks about her poll numbers during a briefing (who does that remind you of?). Her chief-of-staff is her son (who does that remind you of?), played by John Hill. They ignore the impending disaster (what does that remind you of?), they politicize the comet (what does that remind you of?), when the administration does want to focus on the comet, it’s only to distract from a political scandal (what does that remind you of?), they try to make money off the comet (would we do that?), and one of the scientists is villainized by the press and administration for alerting the public of the coming disaster (who does that remind you of?).

Eventually, two sides emerge. Those who believe the comet is coming and those who think it’s a hoax. “Don’t look up” becomes a right-wing slogan.

The film has an amazing cast. I think the best performances came from Jonah Hill, Rob Morgan, Jennifer Lawrence, and Meryl Streep. I felt Leo was out of his element in a comedy and failed to really deliver a great performance, which is unlike him. I guess as great of an actor as he is, he’s no Tom Hanks, or even a Will Ferrell, who can bounce back and forth from comedies to dramas. In fact, Will Ferrell’s movie-making partner, Adam McKay, wrote, directed, and produced this movie. Do NOT let that scare you off as he’s made other tongue-in-cheek dramedies like Vice. I hope Adam McKay keeps making political movies.

Despite this great cast of heavyweights, I didn’t think the movie was that good. At first, I felt that maybe just because it’s making an important point about climate change, the pandemic, Trumpers, capitalism, an unequal economic system, and just how vile the last administration was, that liberals are supposed to like it, never mind if it sucks. It’s a great concept. I made a post about it on Facebook and invited my friends to give their own reviews. They were mixed.

One friend asked me what it was that I didn’t like about it. That made me think. In fact, the entire thread made me think and I realized that even though it’s not a great movie, there were aspects I did like. Maybe this is another Big Lebowski where nobody likes it until years later.

Another friend on Twitter compared it to Dr. Strangelove, which many others have compared it to as well, except my pal called it a “TikTok Strangelove.” I think that’s pretty accurate. But, I think I found the real problem with this movie.

When Donald Trump began his presidential campaign in 2015, I struggled to caricature the guy. Then I realized I was trying to draw a cartoon of someone who was already a cartoon. I was trying to lampoon a human being who was more a collection of vile personality traits than he was a human being. So, I went crazier with the caricature. A lot of Republicans have pointed out that my Trump caricature doesn’t physically look like Trump, but they all know it’s Trump.

Often with Trump and his goons, I found it hard to draw satire on what was already insane. I would sometimes draw a cartoon of exactly what happened, without adding any spin. What I learned was that it’s hard to satirize satire. How do you parody insanity? So, I learned how to draw cartoons making fun of what was already a satire. It was a problem other cartoonists and Saturday Night Live had to figure out as well. What do you do when newspaper headlines look like they came from The Onion?

The problem with Don’t Look Up is that it doesn’t ever fully figure out how to satirize satire. People refusing to look up and see what’s coming straight at them isn’t that far removed from people voting for Donald Trump even after hundreds of thousands die from his ineptitude. This paradoy of denial isn’t that far removed from Republicans saying vaccines don’t work while the virus is literally killing the unvaccinated, most of whom are Republicans. The denial in the movie isn’t that far removed from people denying they lost an election.

It’s hard to use Don’t Look Up as satire when here in reality, people are refusing to look up. People in this nation refuse to see what’s right in front of them. Documentaries of the Trump administration are funnier, in a scary way, than the movie Don’t Look Up.

Don’t Look Up uses the tagline, “Based on truly possible events.” But here in the real world, the Trump administration was an actual event. The storming of the Capitol by white nationalists to overturn the election and install Trump as a fascist dictator was an actual event.

The film Don’t Look Up probably hopes to make people look up instead of just entertaining those who have been looking up for the past six years. This film will not change minds. I know this from experience as I don’t think I’ve changed one mind with my cartoons over the past six years. Don’t Look Up will remain a film for the choir it preaches to. It’s not like Trumpers would understand this movie or see themselves in it anyway.

But, this much analysis means this movie deserves another chance. I’m going to watch it again. If you haven’t seen it, I encourage you to watch it. Don’t just settle for my impression of it. Watch it, then let me know in the comments what you think.

Look up.
