Bad Bleacher Behavior

If you don’t live in Boston or follow sports, you might not be aware that Orioles’ player Adam Jones was pelted with peanuts and racist slurs at Fenway Park Monday night.

I happened to be at that game, and didn’t learn about the incidents (plural, since the peanuts and slurs were slung from different parts of the park) until the next day. A lot of Boston sports media and their callers and commenters became defensive idiots, with some even accusing Jones of making the whole thing up.

I believe Jones because I’ve been to Fenway more times than I can count and heard awful shit said in the bleachers and elsewhere in the park. I’ve also been to stadiums in other cities to know none are without racist and homophobic assholes.

Boston fans get famously defensive when things like this happen, which is not a good look. My fellow fans and the media should take a page from the Red Sox organization and condemn the racists in our midst and make them feel unwelcome. And if that doesn’t work, invite Antifa and Black Bloc on your next trip to Friendly Fenway.

As for the NYTimes’ newest columnist, Bret Stephens, his climate change denial is terrible and has no place in any publication that pitches itself with the slogan “The truth is more important now than ever.” But his bigoted “Disease of the Arab mind” comment should disqualify him from being published anywhere outside of 4chan message boards.

Removing Another Confederate Monument

This is an exclusive cartoon just for $5+ patrons. Become a supporter here.

New Orleans is taking down several monuments to the Confederacy and Jim Crow. But Jefferson Beauregard Sessions is still our Attorney General.

This cartoon is just some wish fulfillment until it’s hopefully realized in 2020, if Sessions doesn’t restrict voting rights to everyone but his ancient ass by then.


Celebrate President Trump’s First 100 Days

Patreon subscribers can see this and every cartoon days before the public. Their support helps keep things running around here.

The first 100 days milestone is largely arbitrary, but Trump made a big deal about it during the campaign. Now he’s downplaying since it’s been such a disaster. 100 days is pretty meaningless when you realize Neil Gorsuch will be on the Supreme Court for probably the next thirty or forty years.

The Customer Compliance Cops

We heard all about United Airlines roughing up a passenger who refused to “volunteer” the seat he paid for, but the goons who did it were security and Chicago Police.

The line between privatized security and police forces is becoming increasingly thin, and corporations are now putting arbitration clauses in their contracts and user agreements to get around the justice system.

Mitch McConnell Rewrites the Rules

Become a patron and read this  and every comic early, and get some other swag.

After denying Merrick Garland’s appointment to the Supreme Court for nearly a year, Mitch McConnell blew up the rulebook to put Neil Gorsuch into dead Scalia’s seat. If they ever regain power, the Democrats would be wise to use the same tactics to shut out Republicans, instead of pining for the “Days of Decorum” that only existed in pundits’ fever dreams.
