Republicans

The Real Extremists


Cjones03262021

One of my cartoon copy editors (I have two) told me this cartoon hit on something that “distresses” her.

She wrote, “It’s become a competition after every mass shooting to see if the shooter is one of ours or one of theirs. If it’s one of theirs, that just shows how bad and depraved the other side is. If it’s one of ours, it’s because the shooter was somehow victimized by the other side. We’re so busy hating one another we can’t see that actual people are dying and it’s coming for us too.” And then she told me I didn’t have any typos.

She is absolutely right and it’s something I admit I think of with each shooting…and I know you do too. I also know the other side does it.

How do I know the other side does it? Because if it’s a white guy, especially one with a pro-Trump or racist manifesto (same thing really), they scream the guy was mentally unstable. If the guy isn’t white, then he’s a terrorist.

My first thought is not, “Is it one of theirs or one of ours?”. That’s because no mass shooter is one of ours. I’m not on the side of people who kill people. Even when a liberal shot Republican Steve Scalise, it wasn’t one of ours. That lunatic may have barked liberal philosophies, but he betrayed it by shooting someone.

For Republicans, all shooters are theirs. It doesn’t matter if the guy has a Republican manifesto and is driving around in a van covered with pro-Trump stickers and is an incel who gets rejected by his blow-up Barbie, or if he’s a bearded beanie Birkenstock-wearing Bernie Bro. Republicans bear responsibility for all shootings. And it’s not because white nationalists are the greatest terror threat in this nation (they are), but because Republicans refuse to do anything about the gun crisis (only immigrants at the border is a “crisis”) and they’re owned by the NRA.

The majority of Americans want gun control. Even the Second Amendment that Republican fucksticks keep barking about uses the term “well-regulated.” It’s kinda ironic the anti-regulation party bases their entire pro-gun spiel on a sentence that says guns should be “well-regulated.” Even back when there were only muskets that took two hours to load, the founding fathers thought regulating guns was a good idea.

But the Republican Party is controlled by the National Rifle Association. When elected officials serve a lobby, they’re not serving their constituents.

Yesterday, Ted Cruz, a guy with a face more punchable than Rand Paul’s, literally complained that every time there is a mass shooting, Democrats want to end mass shootings. Then he literally (we use “literally” a lot with Ted Cruz) argued using “thoughts and prayers” over doing anything substantial. He said proposing legislation was “ridiculous theater.”

Ted, when you left for Cancun wearing a generic face mask but returned home the next day after being called out and then being photographed with a Texas flag face mask, that face mask was “ridiculous theater.” “Ridiculous theater” was you staging photo-ops of loading water into cars while wearing the same Texas flag face mask. If Ted is ever caught cheating on Heidi, he’ll show up the next day with flowers and her face on a T-shirt. And then, Donald Trump can tweet that Melania’s face looks better on T-shirts.

Remember that crazy county clerk in Kentucky who wouldn’t certify gay marriages and was arrested for it? The day she got out of jail, Ted Cruz was there for a photo-op. THAT was “ridiculous theater.” And even she didn’t wanna be seen with Ted Cruz. Instead, she spent all day with Mike Huckabee.

Cancun Cruz argued in the Senate, “I don’t apologize for thoughts or prayers. I will lift up in prayer people who are hurting and I believe in the power of prayer, and the contempt of Democrats for prayers is an odd sociological thing.”

No, Ted. Your gun fetish is an odd sociological thing. That time you cooked bacon on a heated gun barrel of an assault weapon in a campaign commercial was an odd sociological thing. By the way, have you ever heard of a frying pan? That shit you peeled off the gun barrel was limper and more flaccid than…bacon from McDonald’s (you thought I was going somewhere else with that, didn’t ya’?).

Campaign commercials by Qanon congresswoman fucknut Marjorie Taylor Green shooting a sign reading “Socialism” with an assault weapon is an odd sociological thing. But hey, points for finding someone on her staff who can spell “socialism.”

Campaign commercials by Qanon congresswoman fucknut Lauren Boebert of her skulking through Washington with a gun holster on her hip and strapped to her fucking leg like the capital is high noon at the Fucknut Corral in Dodge City is an odd sociological thing.

Republican congressman and noted liar Madison Cawthorn’s commercials of him shooting assault weapons (plural) is an odd sociological thing.

Fuckwad Representatives demanding they should be allowed to take their guns anywhere in the Capitol building is an odd sociological thing. What are you afraid of, that Diane Feinstein’s gonna mug you for your lunch money?

I grew up with guns. I’m from the south so, duh. But I haven’t owned a gun since before my son was born in 1990. I had fun shooting guns and going hunting without killing anything with my best friend Ronnie when we were kids. Then I realized I didn’t like getting up early and sitting in a deer stand in the rain and the first time a deer crossed my path, which were two fawns, instead of shooting them, I named them (Spots and Spotsier. They had spots). Their mom followed and I named her Susan. I had two shot guns and a 22 rifle. My uncle, who sold me my 12 gauge, repossessed it when I didn’t finish paying for him for it (he had a lot of guns), and I realized I didn’t care. Soon after, I gave my rusty 410 (a pretty weak shotgun) to a neighbor and pawned my 22. I never really looked back or regretted getting rid of my guns. But Ronnie still loves his guns.

Today, Ronnie is in Alabama. I was friends with Ronnie’s wife, Lisa, back in the 80s before he met her and sometimes we still talk. I was having a conversation with her fairly recently and we were talking about Washington, DC and New York City. She told me Ronnie would never go to those places because he won’t go anywhere he can’t take a gun. To me, a guy who grew up with guns in the south and can understand it a little bit, that’s an odd sociological thing.

By the way, Ronnie still owes me a video of him crying that he promised before the election if Trump lost. I will also settle for a video of him doing the Little Wrong Man dance.

Anyway…guns. The fetish for them is an odd sociological thing. I don’t get the inability of being unable to leave your home without a gun. For me, it’s car keys, phone, wallet, and pants (when you spend all day without wearing pants during a pandemic, there’s always that one time you step outside forgetting to put on pants. Oddly enough, I had on shoes and socks).

Ted Cruz thinks wanting to do more than giving thoughts and prayers is an odd sociological thing. Ted, your face is odd.

Do you know what the best thing about “thoughts and prayers” is for Republicans? Ted says he believes in the power of prayer, despite the fact it’s not working. Proof? Ten people died from a mass shooting this week and another eight last week. The prayers didn’t stop it. Or maybe all the times they offered thoughts and prayers in the past, they just forgot to actually do it. But Ted and his fellow fetishists claim that giving some thoughts and some prayers are effective and it’s their excuse not to do anything that would actually be substantial in curbing gun violence. But the very best part of thoughts and prayers is…they don’t even have to prove they’re doing it.

I mean, Ted. When you close your eyes and try giving us the impression you’re praying, how do we know you’re actually praying for the victims…or even praying at all? For all we know, you’re thinking back to that banana monkey you had in Cancun while your state was freezing its lone star balls off. You could be thinking about soft and flaccid gun barrel bacon. Or maybe you’re thinking about a new way to kiss Donald Trump’s ass that would overshadow all other Republicans’ kissing of Donald Trump’s ass. Or maybe, when you’re pretending to pray, you’re trying to think of another way to use your daughters in another campaign commercial…or if you should throw them under the bus again the next time you’re caught being a sniveling weasel. You could be thinking about how to gaslight that you were ever in favor of overturning an election and had supported white nationalist terrorists. Maybe you’re asking God why crazy religious female zealots prefer Mike Huckabee over you. Maybe you’re thinking Trump was right to accuse your father of murder. Or maybe you’re wondering if your wife Heidi is truly as ugly as Donald Trump says she is. Maybe you’re asking your lord why he gave you that face. I have. Dear, Lord. Why did you give Ted Cruz that face?

It doesn’t matter what Ted or other Republicans are thinking, none of it will stop gun violence.

And seriously, God. Why did you give him that face? Did Ted turn into a total spineless shitweasel because he had to grow up with that face, or did God know he was going to suck, so he gave him that face? But even then, I doubt thoughts and prayers can do anything to help Ted’s face.

Chip Off The Old Racist Block


Cjones03242021

At a House hearing last week, Republican congressman Chip Roy made an argument for free speech and attacked China for the coronavirus.

Roy, as a former prosecutor, said he wanted to take out the “bad guys,” and called the Chinese Communist Party “the bad guys,” “patently evil” and listed a series of policy criticisms with the Chinese government, including its treatment of the Uyghurs, the theft of American intellectual property, the build up of its military and China’s lack of transparency over the origins and spread of the COVID-19 virus.

The only problem with bringing all that up is that the hearing wasn’t about China, the coronavirus, the Uyghurs, the theft of American intellectual property, or the build up of China’s military. It was a hearing on discrimination and increased violence against Asian Americans. The hearing was scheduled before the shootings in Atlanta that left eight people dead, including six Asian women.

Chip Roy said, “The victims of race-based violence and their families deserve justice, and as the case for what we’re talking about here with the tragedy of what we just saw occur in Atlanta, Georgia.” That sounds alright. But unfortunately, Chipper kept talking.

Have you ever watched The Office and during one of the awkward and uncomfortable moments thought, “Please stop talking, Michael Scott. For the love of god, please stop talking”? This was one of those moments, except more racist, more awkward, and with more stupid.

Chip said, “I think there’s an old saying in Texas about — find all the rope in Texas and get a tall oak tree. You know we take justice very seriously and we ought to do that, round up the bad guys.”

It seems like when Chip found out he was to take part in a hearing about violence and discrimination against an American minority, he thought it was in favor of violence and discrimination against American minorities. Yee-haw, get the rope. You would think that at some point during the sentence about lynching, at least one of his Republican colleagues would have tackled Chip Roy.

Chip was upset because he saw the hearing as an attack on free speech. He thought the hearing was an attack on his freedom to be racist. This is the first response from white male conservatives after six Asian Americans are murdered: “How will this affect my white privilege?”

There has been an increase in hate crimes against Asian Americans over the past year. It coincided with the coronavirus arriving in our country and Donald Trump waging a public relations war against China that included plenty of racist terms against Asians.

Chip Roy said, “My concern about this hearing is that it seems to want to venture into the policing of rhetoric in a free society, free speech and away from rule of law and taking out bad guys.” No. It’s not about policing rhetoric. It’s about policing white racism that leads to violence. To start, you need to find out where the seed was planted. In this case, it was probably planted when Donald Trump started using the term “kung flu.”

And then, racists started walking up to elderly Asian Americans and attacking them. Last week in San Francisco (In case you’re a Republican, that’s in California), a 38-year-old man punched an 83-year-old Asian American man and later, he punched a 75-year-old Asian American woman.

If your first concern after hearing about members of another race being punched and gunned down is for your white privilege, you’re kind of an asshole.

Here’s the thing, white people: Not everything is about you. This country belongs to the 75-year-old Asian woman just as much as it belongs to you. Don’t you get that? If not, it would be best for you to start understanding it.

I understand the world is a scary place for white conservatives. They’re losing elections and they’re becoming the minority. Most people in this nation don’t agree with them. They are no longer the silent majority because they’re never been silent and they’re no longer the majority. Now, they are reluctant to stop using racist terms. White people are starting to argue that not being able to discriminate is discrimination against them.

During the 2016 president campaign at one event in one of the Dakota states, Donald Trump used the slur “Pocahontas,” and was told quickly by a Native American reporter, “That’s offensive.” Donald Trump sounded like a child when he said, “It is?” He acted like it was the first time that was brought to his attention. He didn’t say it again at that event, but he continued to use it for the next four years.

In 1997 when I moved to Hawaii, my editor, who was a Japanese American, told me not to use the word “Oriental” to describe people. She wasn’t angry or talking down, but she explained to me, who was a 30-year-old cartoonist who just got off a plane from Mississippi, that the Orient is a place, not a people. I didn’t fight that. I didn’t resist. My whiteness wasn’t threatened. I stopped using that word for people and I was really glad she educated me and I walked away from that experience a little less ignorant. She may have saved my life. I did not continue using the word that way because I felt she was attacking my freedom. I did not feel she was “policing my rhetoric in a free society.” She was right and the best thing for me to do was listen to her wisdom and follow her advice.

Later that night, I met an elderly man in Waikiki, who was of Chinese descent, who really hated Japanese people. But, he never used the word “Oriental.” It was educational.

I’m not a total jerk. People do make mistakes. Donald Trump could be forgiven if he stopped saying “Pocahontas” as an insult after the first time someone told him it was offensive. But after being told it disparaging, he continued to use it. He continued to use “kung flu” and “China virus.” His people continue to use “Wuhan virus.” The virus is not a place and it’s not an ethnicity. The virus is not people. Perhaps the biggest problem with Trump using those words is that Republicans laughed with each use. Ah, Trump. You are so hilarious. Donald Trump will put people in danger for a cheap laugh…or to overturn an election.

New York Congressional Democrat Grace Meng told Chip Roy, “Your president and your party and your colleagues can talk about issues with any other country you want, but you don’t have to do it by putting a bullseye on the back of Asian Americans across this country, on our grandparents, on our kids.”

You’re free to criticize China. And just like criticizing the Israeli government isn’t anti-Semitic or against Jewish people, you can criticize the policies of China without attacking Asians. You can confront serious issues without putting a bullseye on people’s backs.

But maybe it’ll never work with Republicans because they’re so racist, they don’t know they’re racist. For example: Did you hear about the Republican asshole who used a lynching analogy at an anti-racism hearing?

Welcoming A Crisis


Cjones03232021

Fox News and other assorted devious evil fuckers are spreading lies about immigrants crashing our southern border while carrying the coronavirus because Joe Biden invited them. They did something similar to this in 2018 when they screamed about migrant caravans being funded by George Soros. That was a hat trick for Republicans because it was a lie, anti-Semitic, and racist.

There’s a lot to unpack here, so let’s do it.

President Joe Biden did NOT invite immigrants to come here illegally. He didn’t even invite refugees to come to our border and legally request amnesty. Despite what Republicans and other idiots are saying, those are the facts.

Speaking of facts, it is legal to come to our border and request amnesty. What Donald Trump did was bar people from being able to request amnesty and stay in our country while waiting on a hearing. So, Donald Trump forced very desperate people to sneak into our nation. Some people died attempting this. Some children died attempting this. Donald Trump has blood on his hands.

Joe Biden did NOT open borders. This is a huge lie for Republicans and they can’t stop repeating it. He has talked about pathways to citizenship but he hasn’t made that promise to people who were not in this nation.

There is not a flood of immigrants bringing covid to our nation. It’s just not happening. This is another Fox News bullshit talking point. What do they think the quarantine is for that President Biden has implemented? You can’t scream that President Biden is allowing immigrants to bring the coronavirus here then complain about detaining immigrants. You can’t have both. Pick one. By the way, migrants are being tested at a positive rate of less than six percent. That’s a lower positive rate than Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico.

Immigration has increased since President Biden stepped into office. And yes, a lot of it has do to with there being hope in Central America that there is a friendlier administration…or at least one that’s not going to dehumanize immigrants. Rumor is, unlike the last president (sic), President Joe Biden is NOT a racist asshole. We have had a hard time hiding this fact from Central America. President Biden is a nice guy. He wears a face mask to protect others. He doesn’t demonize or demagogue people. He owns dogs. Even Republicans like him. Ask Lindsey Graham.

The majority of immigrants being detained are children who arrived at the border alone. While we can be unhappy with the way they’re being detained, and where, the situation is not equivalent to the Trump policy where they ripped families apart and threw babies into jails to sleep on floors with tinfoil blankets. It’s not like where Trump and Stephen Miller forced children, children dammit, to go to court alone and represent themselves when they don’t even speak English. The Biden policy is NOT equivalent to the Trump policy that then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions laid out as one of separating families in order to deter immigration. You don’t see anyone from the Biden administration pushing a policy designed to be cruel and giggling while explaining it, as Sessions did.

There are real issues to confront with the border. There are real issues with how the Biden administration is handling it. There are real issues about the transparency of this…but Republicans would rather use lies because President Biden is actually trying to do something about it. Again, he’s a good guy.

For Republicans, the only answer to this problem would be to deny everyone who isn’t white entry into this nation and to be as cruel as possible to the ones who do slip in. You have to remember, Donald Trump didn’t just try to combat illegal immigration. He tried to eliminate legal immigration for non-white people. This is the guy who said we need more people from Norway, described nations in Africa, Central America, and Haiti as “shithole” countries. He talked about people coming over here after living in grass huts. He enacted a ban on people entering from Muslim countries.

For Republicans, the only good immigration policy is a racist policy. How racist are Republicans? The Department of Homeland Security estimates there are over ten million people in this nation illegally. The majority of them entered legally, not crossing through a desert. The majority of drugs and weapons that enter this nation come through legal checkpoints. These are facts. So, with over ten million people here illegally, why are we freaking out over 13,000 brown children at the border? In case you’re a Republican, 13,000 is less than ten million.

By the way, is Trump’s wall not working?

Republican Head


cjones03172021

One of the funny things about the great cancel culture distraction when it comes to the Republican fear of trans potatoes, is the Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head are the same toys. I’m sure Hasbro has huge boxes of plastic potatoes somewhere in Taiwan and at some point along an assembly line, someone earning 43 cents an hour makes the crucial call for each potato whether it’ll have a mustache or a wig.

Technically, Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head are both anatomically correct as potatoes don’t have penises and vaginas. I’m not a farmer but I’m still pretty sure of this. But, what the fuckers at Fox News are up in their plastic arms about is that Hasbro has dropped the “Mr” and “Mrs” from the toy line. But, they have not from the individual characters. I know. It’s weird. Let’s hope Sean Hannity never removes the camo pants off his GI Joes or he’s going to have an on-air freak-out. That may not be fair as it’s possible he’s removed the pants from his GI Joes lots and lots of times.

At some point, I expect these bags of dicks to show up at Hasbro with literal bags of dicks.

These things are just distractions. “Cancel culture” does not exist. I mean, if “cancel culture” did exist, then it has to be the description for all things canceled, like Colin Kaepernick from the National Football League or Rob Rogers, this year’s Herblock Award winner, from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Rob was fired because he refused to stop drawing cartoons about Donald Trump. He was literally fired for doing his job. But don’t worry. His right-wing replacement has drawn numerous cartoons about liberals and their “cancel culture.” Conservatives do not get irony.

Here’s the thing, kids: It’s not “cancel culture” to be removed from a social media platform by a private corporation because you retweeted Nazis or used the platform to organize terrorists. Was ISIS “canceled” by Twitter? I haven’t heard anyone on Fox News crying for the free-speech rights of al Qaida.

It’s also not “cancel culture” when the owner of the product decides to make changes. 

It’s not “cancel culture” when Disney decides to put a warning label on The Muppet Show. Are the shows gone? No. If nothing else, it’s easier to find them now. If you really love the Muppets, you can go watch the Muppets. Nobody is stopping you. Not even those two old guys in the balcony who hate everything. Even they’re more optimistic than the Fox fuckers. “Hey, Fox News isn’t half bad.” “I know. It’s all bad!”

It’s not “cancel culture” because the Dr. Seuss company decides to pull six books that you never read from their line of over 80 books. Nobody forced them. No government came down on them. The company that owns the titles is the one to make the decision on how Dr. Seuss’s legacy will be represented. It’s not up to you or anyone on Fox News. And let’s face facts. You’re not rushing out to purchase these Dr. Seuss titles any more than you’re out buying up all the Goya products. You Republicans don’t do spicy and you don’t do reading.

It’s not “cancel culture” when Warner Bros. decides to remove Pepe Le Pew from an upcoming film and all future projects. You can disagree and believe they’re overreacting, but it’s their skunk. Nancy Pelosi did not make this happen. The only skunk who contributed to rape culture that the public has removed was Donald Trump, who by the way, probably hasn’t seen his penis in years without the aid of a mirror on the floor.

Why are Republicans distracting right now? Because they don’t have anything else. Joe Biden’s approval ratings are sky high. The popularity of the covid-relief package, the American Rescue Plan, is astronomically high even with Republicans. So what can Republicans in Washington and on Trump TV bitch about? I know. Let’s make up some shit.

Look at the border. Sure, we can criticize the detainment of unaccompanied minors, but Republicans have made up lies about immigrants bringing coronavirus with them and have blamed President Biden for the fact they’re coming here. They are literally blaming Biden for being such a good president, that more people want to come to this nation. The distraction also helps to deflect from the fact that this was built up during the Trump regime as they would turn away immigrants who were seeking asylum..

George W. Bush tanked the economy. President Barack Obama rescued our economy and made it grow. What did Republicans have to complain about? They literally said it was the “worst recovery in American history.” That would be like all those Trump terrorists crapping in the Capitol during their insurrection, which they literally did, and then blaming Democrats for how slow they were to clean it up. Hey, you missed a spot!

I would half expect Republicans to gripe that they could have beaten the Nazis better than FDR did, but you know…if they didn’t love Nazis so much.

How dishonest are Republicans? I saw a meme this morning comparing the economic numbers in Obama’s first year, 2009, to the wonderful economic numbers in 2019 under Trump. The meme is dishonest. It ignores that Obama’s first year was his inheritance of Bush’s economy. It ignored that Trump inherited Obama’s great economy. And then, it totally ignores Trump’s last year when he tanked the economy. And all the comments under the meme were comments about the greatness of Trump and the nightmare of Obama. This shit works on Republicans? Why? Because they don’t have dicks.

No, it doesn’t work because they don’t have dicks. It works because they’re stupid…and they don’t have dicks.

So, don’t believe all the crap you’re hearing about Mr. Potato Head being trans and whether or not he has a tater telewacker from some Republican so fat that he hasn’t seen his own penis since the first Bush presidency…or from Tucker Carlson who hasn’t seen his penis ever, not because he’s overweight, but because he doesn’t have one.

Quite frankly, I think it’s a little concerning how consumed Republicans are thinking about penises.

RoJo Is A Racist Mofo


cjones03162021

On Sundays, my CNN cartoon is published and I try to bask in that accomplishment and not draw anything all day. Maybe I’ll watch a movie on Disney+ or Netflix and avoid news all together. That was my plan for this Sunday, but then Ron Johnson pissed me off.

I think when my copy editor Laura sees this, she’s going to tell me it’s more reality than it is a cartoon. Why? Because this is the gist of what Wisconsin Republican Senator Ron Johnson said on a right-wing radio show.

Senator Johnson, who some call “Rojo,” isn’t just a racist senator. He’s a stupid dishonest one too. But then again, he is a Republican and a massive Trump supporter…so being racist, stupid, and a liar comes with the territory.

Ron Johnson watched while the United States Capitol building was attacked by white supremacist terrorist Trump supporters. They broke into the building. The damaged property. They defecated and urinated in the halls. They stole property. They desecrated our Capitol. They injured over 100 Capitol Police officers and they killed one. They attacked cops and beat them with flag poles and fire extinguishers. Over 40 have been arrested so far. Ron Johnson said he only saw law-abiding citizens. It gets worse.

On “The Joe Pag Show,” a radio show I’m assuming has an audience of racist troglodytes, Ron Johnson said he “never felt threatened” by the pro-Trump mob because…wait for it…they weren’t black.

Johnson said, “I knew those are people that love this country, that truly respect law enforcement, would never do anything to break the law, so I wasn’t concerned.”

They broke the law just be entering the building, dumbass. How much respect do you have for the law when you break and climb into windows? How much respect for the law do you have when you’re walking out with the Speaker’s podium? How much respect do you have for this country when you take a shit on the floor of the United States Capitol? How much love do you have for this country when you try to overturn an election and stage a bloody coup attempt?

That was the stupid dishonest part of Johnson’s statements. It was followed by a racist one.

He said, “Had the tables been turned and President Trump won the election and those were tens of thousands of Black Lives Matter and antifa protesters, I might have been a little concerned.”

Basically, white people with nooses, storming the capitol, waving Confederate flags, wearing “Camp Auschwitz” shirts, leaving pipe bombs, killing cops, isn’t concerning…but if one of them had an afro, then I guess the person crapping on the floors would have been Ron Johnson. And you know what? I bet if it had been a non-violent Black Lives Matter protest at the Capitol, the National Guard would have swooped in a lot quicker than they did last January 6 when Donald Trump sent white terrorists to overturn a free election and stop a Constitutional process.

Also, it’s really bizarre Ron Johnson is saying he would have only been concerned if antifa was a part of the rioters when in the past he claimed it was antifa who did the rioting. C’mon, guys. You gotta keep your bullshit talking points straight. Pick a stupid lie and stick to it.

From personal experience, I was never concerned about the crowd I was with when I was walking with Black Lives Matter in New York City on June 1, 2020. I wasn’t even worried when I saw a few stores get looted by the minority of protesters. Even then, they were nice and one even offered me a Jeter jersey. I had great conversations with the protesters and many thanked me for “helping their cause” and for “lending my whiteness.” One girl called me “white brother” which I liked very much. Some of the best Americans I ever met were marching in Manhattan that night to selflessly advance civil rights for every person this nation.

What did concern me was when white people started dropping water bottles on the marchers out of their penthouses. It concerned me when cops started screaming at us while raising their batons. It was greatly concerning when after screaming at me and a few others (who happened to be Asian) to go in a different direction, that after we complied, they kept following and screaming at us. I was greatly concerned when the New York City Police told me I would be arrested if I broke curfew…while they were blocking me from entering my hotel.

Not one black person or member of antifa concerned me that night. But if Ron Johnson had been there, well…he’d probably be up in a building dropping water bottles on peaceful protesters because he would have been concerned because the majority of the crowd was not white.

I saw people in Manhattan, of all colors and races, spend their own money on water and face masks, then hand them out to strangers who were protesting. It was one of the most unifying events I have ever witnessed or been a part of. I felt genuine love between the protesters. What I saw on January 6 at the Capitol was hate, fear, and rage inspired by people like Ron Johnson who told them lies.

You canNOT compare a Black Lives Matter rally or march to white nationalist terrorism in the name of Donald Trump. Black Lives Matter seeks equality for all. They’re demanding that cops stop murdering unarmed black people. Trump terrorists tried to destroy our democracy and install a fascist dictator. If you don’t see the difference in that, well then you’re Ron Johnson.

Any senator who pledges more loyalty to Donald Trump than to his/her constituents is a lousy senator. Ron Johnson has put Trump before the truth and his country on multiple occasions.

Wisconsin’s motto is “Forward.” In 2022 when Rojo is up for reelection, they need to prove they believe in their motto and remove their racist, lying, stupid senator from Congress. If enough black people and anti-fascists turn out to vote, Ron Johnson will be justified in being “concerned.”

Oppressive Integrity


cjones03122021

Currently, there are 43 states that are considering 253 bills that will change laws affecting how people can vote.

Republicans from Georgia to Indiana to Iowa to Arizona and everywhere in between are trying to change laws that will limit the number of drop boxes per county, limit hours polls are to be open, limit mail-in voting, limit reasons to vote by mail, limit the number of voting locations, limit the number of days people can vote early, strengthen voter ID requirements and then…wait for it…limit the ability to get IDs.

Did you notice one word repeated a lot in the last paragraph? That word was “limit.” So, why so much limiting across the country? Is it because of widespread voter fraud, illegals voting, shady ballots, defective voting machines, Hugo Chavez’s ghost stealing the election from Donald Trump for Joe Biden? Nope. None of those things happened.

Republicans argue we have to change voter laws because the public has lost confidence in the voting system, even though there was no widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election. Republicans argue we have to restore “election integrity.” Restore “election integrity”? Where did it go? If no laws were broken, then why are Republicans trying to change them in 43 states? Why did the public lose confidence in the system?

The public has NOT lost confidence in the system. A bunch of Republican voters claim they have lost confidence in the system that wasn’t violated. More than half of Republicans, around 65%, believe Donald Trump won the election and Joe Biden stole it. What proof do they have? None. Despite over 60 lawsuits failing, they believe the election was stolen because a man who has told over 20,000 lies told them the election was stolen.

Republicans want to change voter laws that weren’t broken and because voters lost confidence in the system after they spent months telling them to lose confidence in the system. Keep in mind, this is the same party that invaded the wrong country that might have had weapons of mass destruction that didn’t and eventually costing us over $2 trillion. I think there should 65% of Republicans who realize that 99% of everything Republicans say is total and complete bullshit.

Why do they really want to change the system? Because they lost. My, that does sound simplistic, right? We’re talking about Republicans. Everything is simplistic.

But Republicans are about as good at hiding their intentions with changing these laws as they are at hiding their racism…and basically, changing these laws is part of their racism.

The big lie that the election was stolen is based in racism. The argument is that fraudulent ballots came from black voting precincts. Donald Trump used this racist lie to send racist terrorists to attack Congress, where even a few racist members there encouraged and helped coordinate the attack. Republicans didn’t hide that very well.

During a hearing at the Supreme Court, a lawyer for Arizona literally told Justice (sic) Amy Coney Barrett that they need to change the laws or Republicans won’t win.

Lindsey Graham can’t shut up about it. Senator Lindsey Graham, who called Georgia officials to try to overturn the election for Trump, told Fox News on November 8, “Mail-in balloting is a nightmare for us.” He said if they don’t change the laws, “We’re never going to win again presidentially.” In case nobody was listening, he returned to Fox News the very next day and said, “If we don’t do something about voting by mail, we’re going to lose the ability to elect a Republican in this country.”

It comes down to this: The more people who vote, the less chance Republicans have to win.

The fact is, the majority of Americans do not vote Republican anymore. Donald Trump lost the popular vote TWICE. If Republicans would actually work on policies that help the majority of Americans (not just billionaires) instead of promoting policies that most Americans want, or maybe not politicizing a virus that kills over 527,000 people, or not sending white supremacist terrorists to attack the government, maybe they would win more elections.

Republicans failed at overturning a free and fair election they lost, so now they want to change the rules.

Republicans would rather restrict minority voting rights than win legitimately. They tried to overturn an election they lost with 60 court cases. They lost the election 60 more times. Lindsey Graham, a United States Senator from South Carolina, called Georgia to get them to overturn their state election. Donald Trump called Georgia and told the Secretary of State to “find me the votes.” He invited state legislators to the White House to strong-arm them to overturn the election. He had lawyers tell lies about the “stolen election.” Members of Congress attempted to stop the certification required by the United States Constitution. Trump and members of Congress sent terrorists to engage in a bloody coup attempt. Trump supporters killed cops in an attempt to steal an election.

One party wants to open up elections, make voting easier, and encourage every eligible voter to vote. The other party wants to limit voting as much as possible. That party wants to oppress minority voting. That party wants to dismantle voting rights.

Racist Republicans only want racist Republicans to vote which is natural for them because once elected, they will only represent racist Republicans. In arguments before the Supreme Court, Arizona made it clear that the changes they want will allow any state to nullify federal voting laws. That means any state could ignore the Voting Rights Act.

Republicans’ main argument is that black and brown people voting can’t be trusted and it has to be fraudulent when they vote. This argument is based on nothing. This is another grab, like gerrymandering, where Republicans don’t want voters to pick who represents them, but allow Republicans to select who can vote for them.

Republicans, are corrupt, sleazy, racist, and anti-American…and they’re doing a horrible job hiding it.

Cancel Voter Culture


cjones03082021

Yesterday, one of my cartooning colleagues sent out a call to cartoonists asking if any of us had a Mr. Potato Head and if so, could he borrow it. I do have a Mr. Potato Head and he’s been with me for at least a couple of decades. I don’t remember where or when I bought him. He may have been a gift. I don’t remember. I’m old. But he’s overlooking my desk right now. And no, you can’t borrow him. He’s not going anywhere. I don’t know what my friend’s plans are for my Mr. Potato Head but I’ll be damned if I let him defile him or risk losing him in the mail. I like my Mr. Potato Head so much that after I moved into this apartment and couldn’t find his hat and mustache, I ordered replacements. Did you know you could do that? I didn’t but there are fuckers on Ebay selling Mr. Potato Head mustaches. That’s a thing.

To my friend, you could just purchase one on Amazon and it’d be at your house probably faster than I could send you mine. You can still purchase a Mr. Potato Head because despite all the Republican outrage, he has NOT been canceled. His big blue shoes are still kicking. Hasbro, the company that makes the toy, is still selling toy potatoes with the Mr. and Mrs. designations. They’re just also creating some playsets that de-emphasize the Mr. and Mrs. Also, it’s a toy of a potato.

This “cancel culture” bullshit has to stop. Most of the time, it doesn’t really exist. It’s like assholes complaining about political correctness. Basically, all political correctness is about is that you stop being an asshole. That’s really it. Now when Republicans scream about “cancel culture,” they’re making themselves out to be the victims when they’re really the perpetrators.

They yell racist shit and spread conspiracy theories, so when they are removed from a social media platform, they scream they’re being victimized. It’s like when someone claims rights for LGBTQ violates their religious freedom to be a bigot.

When you spread conspiracy theories and herd white nationalist terrorists to attack the government, it’s NOT cancel culture when you’re removed from Twitter.

When the company that owns the Dr. Seuss franchise decides to stop selling a few titles because of racist images, that’s not cancel culture. It’s not even a ban. That’s the company making up their own mind, without pressure or threats, to stop selling poisonous and hateful shit to children.

When a warning label is placed on The Muppets, that’s still not cancel culture. Which side were all you jackasses on when Tipper Gore wanted to put labels on Prince’s music? Right now, you’re all freaking out about the WAP song. And how did I reference the WAP song two days in a row?

Cancel culture is when you and your troglodyte buddies canceled Colin Kaepernick because you didn’t like his message. You hated his silent protest so much, you didn’t want him to have a job.

The former cartoonist of The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Rob Rogers, was “canceled” by his bosses because he refused to stop drawing cartoons criticizing Donald Trump. They fired him. Now, his replacement, a Trump-supporter, is drawing cartoons decrying cancel culture. You can’t make this shit up.

When you and your fellow Karens, who are all white teachers at a private Christian school, lose your jobs for posting a picture on social media holding letters that spell out “Coons,” that’s not cancel culture. That’s you being racist despite your defense you were only trying to spell “raccoons” in a human Scrabble contest and you never knew that word was racist. You’re teachers and you didn’t know “coons” was racist and the five of you together can’t spell “raccoons”? Yesterday, they tried to spell “Schwarzenegger.”

What’s just as racist, even if they don’t use any of the words, is trying to cancel the rights of minority voters. Republicans are racist? That’s not a surprise and you also shouldn’t be surprised that they care a lot more about Muppets, Potato Heads, and other inanimate objects than they care about voting rights.

Republicans in multiple states, especially in states President Joe Biden won that are controlled by Republican legislatures, are trying to disenfranchise millions of voters, specifically black and brown voters. You know, the wrong kind of voters.

Republicans are basing this on “election integrity” which means they want to remove all integrity from elections. Republicans do not want every eligible voter to vote. They’re trying to cut down on the number of ballot drop boxes, limit mail-in voting, hours at the precincts, and make it more difficult for minority voters in rural communities to get government ID cards.

They argue the laws have to be changed because stupid people think there was fraud. But then again, these are the same motherfuckers who want to build a wall in the desert where nobody crosses the border.

Never mind there wasn’t any actual fraud, but hey…if white people feel weird about it, then we need to make it harder for black people to vote. One lawyer arguing Arizona’s case before the Supreme Court actually admitted they needed the laws to change or else they wouldn’t win any elections in the future.

I suck at basketball so if I play Michael Jordon one-on-one, I need to be spotted 50 points and have the game limited to two minutes. Fuck getting better at basketball. Let’s just change the rules so I can win.

States like Arizona and Georgia are going blue. Their demographics are changing and there are more urban voters which typically goes to the Democrats. These states’ populations are increasing with people who are college educated and who don’t vote based on conspiracy theories and they typically don’t vote for Nazi lovers…so yeah, they don’t vote for Republicans. The best way for Republicans to win with these new voters is to not let them vote.

As it turns out, legislators who operate on conspiracy theories can’t win votes from intelligent people. We should not change laws that will disenfranchise millions of voters because you don’t like the outcome of the last election. You lost. Why don’t you try to win the next one by convincing more people to vote for you instead of trying to prevent them from voting?

Maybe instead of disenfranchising millions of minority voters, the Republican Party could try to create policies that appeal to more than just Nazis. Nah, stopping black people from voting is a lot easier.

What you’re trying to do is cancel legitimate voters. You’re trying to cancel a constitutional right.

What a bunch of Mr. Fuck Heads.

CPAC Cult


cjones03032021

Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Donald Trump Jr told the cult that maybe the organization should now be called “TPAC.” In case you’re slower than Donald Trump Jr, the “T” is for Trump. The should keep it as “CPAC,” but with the first “C” standing for “Cult.”

The Republican Party isn’t about conservatism anymore. It’s not about policy. It’s not even about Republicans. It’s about Donald Trump. His entire strategy to retake the White House is to run on his grievances because it’s all about him. The only policy is subservience to Donald Trump. This is not a party anymore. It’s a cult. And in case you had any doubts, just take one look at the golden statue, seriously, that was wheeled into the convention. They literally brought a golden statue of Donald Trump. Some in attendance at CPAC literally bowed down before it.

Saddam Hussein had statues made of him while he was still alive. He even named Baghdad’s airport after himself. By the way, there’s a movement by the Trump cult to rename a Florida airport after Donald Trump. Typically, leaders die before statues are built in their honor. You know, leaders much greater than Donald Trump like Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and Ronald McDonald.

Will Republicans soon be required to build shrines inside their homes to Donald Trump, like what’s required North Koreans for Kim Jong Un, his father, and grandfather?

This is what’s become of the GOP, the Grand Old Party. It’s a cult to Donald Trump and after four more years of this shit, worshipping a racist reality TV show host who was this nation’s worst president, who lost the popular vote twice, lost the House and Senate for his party, who continues the Big Lie of the stolen election, who instigates terrorists to attack the government in bloody coup attempts, and refuses a peaceful transfer of power to the president who defeated him in a democratic and free election, there will be nothing left of the Republican Party.

Even Mitch McConnell, who blamed Donald Trump for the attack on the Capitol and suggested he’ll be held accountable in a court of law on criminal charges, said he’ll support Donald Trump if he’s the nominee in 2024.

What’s left of the Republican Party is outrage over a stolen election that wasn’t stolen and Mr. Potato Head maybe not being Mr. anymore.

“The people at CPAC are living in an alternate reality in which facts don’t matter, the Constitution doesn’t matter. They have no principle except whatever their leader says.” Who said that? The former leader of CPAC, Mickey Edwards.

Edwards, who is also a former Oklahoma Congressman said, “The Republican Party really no longer stands for any kind of principles, conservative or otherwise. They’re no different than they are in Hungary…whatever the Great Leader says, they do.”

He also said, “The party seems now to be completely following the lead of one man wherever he goes, which is the definition of a cult. All that matters is ‘Trump is for this, we’re for this.’ And that includes denying truth, denying facts, denying reality.”

Edwards quit the Republican Party after the attack on the Capitol. Speakers at this year’s conference, appropriately being held in Florida, include Senators Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz, who helped instigate the terrorist attack. Edwards said the current leader, Matt Schlapp, doesn’t have his job because when Edwards was the head of CPAC, “it was a group that was based on conservative principles. We were strong supporters of the Constitution. We believed in free elections. We believed in democracy. These people don’t believe in any of those things.” Schlapp does not push conservative issues anymore. Instead, he has pushed Donald Trump’s bogus stolen election lie. Removing yourself from reality is now a requirement to be a member of the Republican Party.

The entire conference has been one of lie after lie followed by conspiracy theory followed by conspiracy theory. I can’t wait to hear what policies Trump focuses on during his speech later today.

Are you a still a Republican after the leader of your party has tried to undermine our constitution and encouraged terrorists to attack the government in a bloody coup attempt? Are you still a Republican after it has been co-opted by Qanon?

If you’re still a Republican, congratulations. You’re in a cult.

Conspiracy Tiger


The attack on the United States Capitol building was instigated by months of a Big Lie that Donald Trump won the election and it was stolen from him. It was largely built around right-wing terrorists who coordinated with each other how to seize the Capitol. Before the event, Donald Trump called these supporters to be in Washington, D.C. on January 6. Senators Josh Hawley, Ron Johnson, Ted Cruz, and several others helped push the Big Lie. The day of the attack, when Congress was certifying the election which is a task mandated by the United States Constitution, Josh Hawley gave the terrorists a big wave of his fist which was either a show of support or to show he wanted to whack them off. Either way, he wanted to pleasure terrorists.

Ted Cruz, along with Hawley, did all they could to slow down the certification process, using the Big Lie in doing so. Now that they told that Big Lie, they’re on to new ones…like blame Democrats for the terrorist attack.

Yesterday, in a Senate and House joint hearing on the insurrection on our government, election, and Constitution, Hawley, Johnson, and Cruz all pretended they were responsible legislators who are to be taken seriously. They are not to be taken seriously. They are ridiculous jokes that are not funny.

Testifying were former US Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund, former House sergeant-at-arms Paul Irving, former Senate sergeant-at-arms Michael C. Stenger, who all resigned after the attack, and Michael Contee, the acting chief of local police in Washington, D.C.

The first question was: Why didn’t you see this coming? The entire public knew it was coming. I knew enough to draw a cartoon before the attack of Josh Hawley as a terrorist. Donald Trump said it was coming. The media knew it was coming. So, why didn’t our intelligence agencies know it was coming? And let’s debunk this lie now: Neither Nancy Pelosi nor Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser turned down protection.

During the attack, why was there a delay in a response from the National Guard? We still don’t have an answer to this. It was ridiculous that the response was so slow, but we have one fact. Donald Trump didn’t rush to get the National Guard on the scene. He was too busy calling senators and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy planning how to stop the certification of the election. Another fact: This was a coup attempt. We did NOT have a peaceful transfer of power between administrations. Donald Trump still has not conceded he lost despite the fact…let me clear my throat…HE FUCKING LOST!!!

“Would you agree that this attack involved White supremacists and extremist groups?” That’s the question asked by Senator Amy Klobuchar. All four witnesses said, “Yes.” Senator Ron Johnson tried to downplay the white supremacist angle. Why, why, why the fuck why is anyone who is not a racist trying to protect white supremacists? Ron Johnson didn’t just try to protect white supremacists, he used conspiracy theories during a Congressional hearing. He claimed the Trump supporters were in a “festive” atmosphere and that there were too many of them who were fat, bloated, handicapped, old, decrepit, and just too out of shape to be involved in a terrorist attack. Plus, they’re all patriots who love Trump and their country. The attack was by people disguised as Trump supporters. In fact, the fake Trump supporters planned the entire thing. Why didn’t Ron Johnson use the “they’re too stupid to plan this” defense? That has a bit of logic to it.

Monday, Fox News’ host and Pinocchio understudy Tucker Carlson claimed on his show that white supremacists had nothing to do with the attack. I guess they were all home picking roses or something. Maybe they were praying and building churches. Tucker Carlson is a liar and he’s lying to protect racists. Why, Tucker, why? Why must Tucker be a fucker?

Ron Johnson even claimed Trump supporters would never attack the police, despite there being videos of Trump supporters attacking the police and the inconvenient fact that Trump supporters killed a few cops. Also, a cop lost an eye, another lost fingers, and the Trump supporters pooped and pee-pee’d in the halls of Congress. This is true. Trump supporters are NOT good people. Fight me.

Josh Hawley, the guy who might want to stroke off white nationalist terrorists, said that Speaker Pelosi’s choice to investigate the matter (not him masturbating terrorists, but the entire attack), Retired Lt. Gen. Russel Honoré, shouldn’t be involved in the investigation for asking if some Capitol Police officers were complicit in the attack. Hawley said, “This person has no business leading any security review related to events of January 6.” Really? Hawley has no business investigating the attack, sitting on a hearing, or even being a United States Senator. Aren’t there some white supremacist terrorists back in Missouri who need a reach-around?

Hawley, who helped an insurrection and was the first Senator to become a coup’s cheerleader, said that Honoré’s comments were “disrespectful” and “really quite shocking”.

There are 2,000 officers in the Capitol Police and most fought the terrorists, but there were a few who opened the doors and took selfies with them, which is almost as bad as Representative Lauren Boebert tweeting out leaders’ locations during the attack and a Senator wanting to jack off insurrectionists.

During the opening statements of the hearing, Ted Cruz was busy scrolling through his phone, probably searching through CancunCruz hashtags. Sorry, Ted. That shit has a longer shelf life than #BernieMittens, you treasonous constituent-abandoning poodle-neglecting sack of shit.

Ted Cruz pretending he cares about white supremacists trying to overthrow our government and disenfranchise our presidential election is about as believable as Ted Cruz being concerned about Texans, or his poodle, freezing while he was taking his daughters to Cancun. By the way, what is there for children to do in Cancun? For the record, I’m against doing body shots with nine-year-olds.

Ted Cruz was all, “Oh it was terrible…how can we make sure it never happens again?” Answer: Get rid of Senators who help incite terrorists. At this point, even Cruz’s poodle wants a new daddy.

Ted Cruz, Ron Johnson, and Josh Hawley should be stripped of their committee assignments just like House Qnut Marjorie Taylor Greene. They could all use that time to fundraise for their racist PACs…or go to Cancun. Members of Congress have no business sitting on a committee asking about terrorists attacks they enabled. They should be the ones answering questions. Missouri and Texas, I’m not so sure about, but Wisconsin, I know you can do better and you get your shot next year.

As for Tiger Woods, I was really sorry to hear about his car wreck yesterday and I was worried about him. But it sounds like we have good news this morning. Tiger, stop driving fast and stop palling around with Donald Trump. Tiger allowed Donald Trump to use him for a photo-op when Trump awarded him the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Tiger, when it comes to Trump medals, you’re in the same company as Rush Limbaugh. Not good. Karma is mean. Don’t accept medals from people who incite white supremacist terrorist attacks.

Tiger, blink twice if you’re OK. Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley, Ron Johnson, blink if you’re a terrorist.
