Hey Republicans! Wake Up and Smell the Nazis!

Hip-hop artist Ye took notorious white supremacist Nick Fuentes to meet with former President Donald Trump at Mar-a-Lago. Both have been seeking public attention by touting antisemitism and other hateful views. Normie Republicans need to use this event as an excuse to cut ties with the former POTUS.   While you’re here enjoying DonkeyHotey’s latest cartoon, please take a moment to read these articles on related topics: 

Word(s) of God

Religions traffic in what they claim to be divine certainty. So why is it so difficult for them to decide what to think of same-sex marriage? Surprising many, the Church of Latter Day Saints recently decided to endorse it.   While you’re here enjoying Ted Rall’s latest cartoon, please take a moment and read articles on related topics: 

How the Media Became the Most Consistent Election Loser

With many races still undecided and control of Congress in the balance (at the time this was written), political journalists across the country are trying to figure out who the biggest losers in this election were. That’s easy: All they have to do is look in the mirror.

Love on the Rocks

After Elon Musk purchased Twitter, journalists pledged to migrate elsewhere on social media. But like a moth to the flame, they found that breaking up, or ignoring, is harder to do than they imagined.   While you’re here enjoying Ted Rall’s latest cartoon, please take a moment and read articles on related topics: 

GOP Morphs From Political Party to the Greatest Threat to Humanity in 50 Years

Throughout our history, there have always been groups of people that posed a threat to other humans or even humanity itself. For example, at some point, the greatest threat to others was probably the Mongol hordes, which were then replaced for a few centuries by European colonists who wreaked havoc across the globe.

Who’s Driving?

Elon Musk has put self-driving cars on the streets of every city in America and has his own personal space program, but what really seems to elicit angst from the media class is his recent purchase of the social media platform Twitter. Could it really be that this is where he presents a grave and present danger?   While you’re here enjoying Ted Rall’s latest cartoon, please take a moment and read articles on related topics: 

The Next Victim of the GOP’s Democracy-Killing Spree: Ballot Initiatives

In August, voters in Kansas stunned the political establishment. In a landslide vote, 59 percent of them supported a referendum preserving the state’s existing abortion rights. That outcome was rightly hailed as a win for the pro-choice movement. But, more importantly, it was a rare and sorely needed victory for democracy in the US.

We Are Not Having This Debate — A Once Proud Tradition of Discourse Is Dying

Over the past couple of decades, we have seen a lot of changes to US elections. Nearly all of them have been bad. Corporations are people now; minority voters not so much. The peaceful transition of power is not a thing anymore, and neither are competitive congressional districts. One constant that has remained is televised debates. Which makes sense because they are a completely useless relic of a different era and have morphed into a total waste of time.

Donald Trump’s Back Problems Explained: Lawsuit Fatigue

The weight of dozens of legal actions seems to be slowly bringing the former POTUS down to earth. While you’re here enjoying DonkeyHotey’s latest cartoon, please take a moment to read these articles on related topics: 

A Sad Drunk

Liz Truss resigned after 44 days, making her the shortest-serving prime minister in British history. She had advocated for Reagan-style trickle-down economics but neglected to campaign for the policies before becoming PM. At least she had one major accomplishment: She tanked the economy virtually overnight.   While you’re here enjoying Ted Rall’s latest cartoon, please take a moment and read articles on related topics: 

Herschel Walker Is Not a Sheriff nor a Doctor

Rather than limiting the cost of insulin to $35, Walker pushed the idea that diabetes patients could control their symptoms by improving their diet. Diet affects patients with Type 2 diabetes, but would not cure patients with Type 1 diabetes.

Mutually Assured Distraction

Our apologies if you thought duck-and-cover, fallout shelters, and other relics of the nuclear terror were just ancient Cold War history. As President Joe Biden warns of the specter of nuclear Armageddon and tensions rise in the Russia-Ukraine war, it’s time to be afraid again.   While you’re here enjoying Ted Rall’s latest cartoon, please take a moment and read articles on related topics: 

Ron DeSantis Has a Fix for the Boots

Writers in media and social media posted numerous memes about Florida governor Ron DeSantis surveying the wreckage of Hurricane Ian while wearing very white and very high boots. Here are sample of some of the tweets containing popular DeSantis white-boot memes:

Oil the Vote

One month before the key midterm elections, OPEC, led by Saudi Arabia, decided to reduce oil production in direct opposition to the request by President Joe Biden to increase it in response to a European and Western boycott of oil and gas from Russia. The result, obviously, will be higher gas prices, and that might have an effect at the polls.   While you’re here enjoying Ted Rall’s latest cartoon, please take a moment and read articles on related topics: 

For GOP, Silence About Policies Is Golden

It’s easy to find out what Republicans are against: democracy, minorities, minorities playing fish in movies, minorities playing flutes, books that offend Republicans, accurate US history, (brown) immigrants, attacks on marriage, gay marriage, interracial marriage (this one is making a comeback after 50 years), restrictions to religious freedoms, religious freedoms for Muslims, things they perceive to be “socialism,” and (unarmed) teachers.

The Only Special Master Judge Cannon Knows Is Donald Trump

Her recent rulings in the case of a former president accused of () stealing classified documents and haphazardly storing them at his residence show that US District Judge Aileen Cannon knows only one special master: Donald Trump.

Copland

Opponents of abortion in some states want to ban pregnant women from traveling out of state for an abortion. They want the police to deploy license-plate scanners in order to enforce their travel bans.

Rage Against the Machines — Can an Unlikely Coalition Make Elections Safer?

Say what you want about hardcore MAGA and QAnon types, they are highly motivated. When it comes to stopping imaginary pedophile rings, getting educational concepts banned from schools where they weren’t taught in the first place, supporting a made-up wall to keep out fake floods of foreigners, or protecting themselves from Bill Gates personally implanting microchips into their bodies, they have some very strong opinions and are willing to fight for them. 

GOP Arizona Governor Candidate Boasts About BDE

Republican candidate for governor of Arizona, Kari Lake, actually did proclaim that Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) has the same kind of BDE as Donald Trump. This is part of a trend of politicians “working blue” to get a rise out of the crowds and to increase social media engagement about their events. Lake, DeSantis, and Trump all pretend to be election deniers to rile up their supporters.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2osdMe-DfNM&t=39s   While you’re here enjoying DonkeyHotey’s latest cartoon, please take a moment to read these articles on related topics:
