Senate Hearing Content Warnings

Read the comic on Patreon.

I only watched clips and read articles about the Senate Judiciary Committee’s confirmation hearings for Ketanji Brown Jackson. A gross spectacle that I don’t know how anyone managed to watch it all, let alone participate in it like Brown Jackson was forced too.

After the run of Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Barrett, there’s no more pretense of the Supreme Court being above the fray. That ended with Bush v. Gore for me.

Hopefully Brown Jackson gets confirmed. Meanwhile, I’m eagerly refreshing Clarence Thomas news.

Spotify’s Top Podcasts

Read the comic on Patreon.

Joe Rogan’s been spreading misinformation throughout the pandemic, and it seems to have worked. States everywhere are currently lifting meager mitigation measures while around 20,000 people are still dying every week.

All the hateful and dumb shit on his podcast precedes the pandemic and Spotify knew who they were giving $100 million to, all subsidized by stiffing musicians to fractions of pennies per stream.

I’m old and streaming music never appealed to me. I still listen to mp3s and put them on my phone for when I’m on the go. Bandcamp works for that, and they give artists 100% of the proceeds the first Friday of every month. Try it out.

Republicans’ Uncritical Race Stories

Read the comic on Patreon.

The latest culture war Republicans came up with to distract from their obstruction is yet another racist dog whistle. And this one also lets them scaremonger about elitist college professors and students.

Opposing this horseshit is usually a waste of time to distract from talking about popular issues that would make Republicans look bad. But when it turns into actual fascist laws like Florida’s Mandatory College Ideology Registration, I dunno. I don’t think we’re gonna argue or even vote our way out of this descent into fascism.

Anyway, Have a Summah!

Stephen Miller’s Not-So-Subtle Racism

Read the comic on Patreon.

The Southern Poverty Law Center put out a comprehensive report on Stephen Miller’s extremist record. Anyone who’s surprised by its content had to have been in a coma for the past four years.

I looked up Miller’s birthday for the ID, and can you believe this bald shithead is 6 years younger than me? (Don’t answer.)

Endangering the Endangered Species Act

Read the comic on Patreon.

Not content to limit the suffering it inflicts to human beings, they’re going after endangered species, too. If they have their way, the only species left will be marauding bands of 30-50 feral hogs.

White Nationalist Terror Defense Kit

Read the comic on Patreon.

Doing a comic about the Democratic primary last week was a brief respite from covering the white supremacist domestic and state terror that happens every single day. As much as John Delaney sucks and Joe Biden gaffes his way to a repeat of 2016, it’s small potatoes compared to the pogroms that are going on.
