Blame the Flag

Last week’s horrific shooting at the “Mother Emanuel” church in South Carolina underscored America’s terrible racist past, not to mention present. While it’s all well and good the Confederate flags are starting to come down, that is the easiest choice imaginable from the toxic menu of racism, hatred and guns.

If only racism and gun-toting white supremacists would disappear with the removal of the Stars and Bars from government grounds and major retailers.  I’m happy to see the bandwagon of politicians who used to support the display of the Confederate flag getting bigger every day.  Some of these guys were using the “heritage” defense of the flag just last week, then calling for its removal this week.  

Thanks to the none-too-brave Nikki Haley, Republicans are tripping over themselves to defuse this potentially damaging campaign issue.  (Never mind that the current Majority Whip in the United States House of Representatives has his own history of hanging out with white supremacists and he seems to be doing just fine.)  Unfortunately, the racist past and present of the United States will be haunting us for a long time to come, but at least we won’t be able to buy a Confederate flag at Walmart.  (These are still on sale, however.)  Enjoy the cartoon, feel free to help the victims and the community most impacted by this tragedy.  And, as usual, be sure to check out the news behind the cartoon.

The Gospel of Denial

Now that Pope Francis has come out on the side of acknowledging human-caused global warming, Republican presidential contenders are suddenly on the side of “science” not religion.  Where does this pope guy get off on mixing religion and politics, sheesh!  


Thanks to the pope, it’s becoming more difficult to cast yourself on the side of the angels and the oil companies at the same time.  Never mind that human-caused global warming is established science, political contributions from the oil and gas industry are waaaay more important than saving the world.  And it’s not just the Republican candidates, a surprising number of regular ol’ Republican people are still buying into the “hoax” line fed to them by big oil and politicians.

Let’s hope Pope Francis and the Catholic Church (not known for being wild-eyed commie environmentalists like 97% of those climate scientists) can help bring some sanity, morality and actual science to the global warming battle.  Be sure to dive into the links behind the cartoon, comment, like and share! | Continue Reading | View Comments (5)
