Cartoon

The Wackos Club

(Cartoonist - David Horsey)

In other good news, the GOP congressional candidate who told her constituents that it's Okay to point their guns at law enforcement officers lost her bid for Congress.

Meanwhile, House Republicans have blocked an amendment to affirm President Obama's executive orders against LGBT discrimination. Again.

And finally, Jason Chaffetz's (R-Dogwhistle) Oversight Committee voted to censure IRS commissioner John Koskinen because... he hasn't been nice enough. Or something.

    Ho-hum on the cartoon. In the last days, Hillary Clinton has won the Democratic Party nomination, we have had the terrible Orlando shooting and hypocrisy has reached full on tilt with the Republicans and the religious right trying to pretend they give a crap, all while undermining the LGBT community everywhere. I would expect a topical cartoon, but unsurprisingly this blog is still running its umpteenth slam out of many directed at Bernie Sanders supporters, an issue which has devolved into this blog’s version of Benghazi.

    I don’t understand how Red Shirts can demagogue against LGBT rights, calling them perverts, pedophiles, predators, deviants, and a general threat to society. I don’t under stand how they can deny them equal rights and protections. I don’t understand how they do things like blame them for natural disasters under the guise of God’s Wrath.

    I don’t understand how they can do this and then turn around and be baffled by something like Orlando.

    I don’t understand how they can do this and then suffer not a moment of introspective questioning whether they are complicit.

    I don’t understand how they can do this and then balk and be offended when someone else claims they bear some responsibility.

    It baffles me.
