Daily morning cartoon / meme roundup: tRumpism is a fear virus. Republicans want you afraid, afraid of change, afraid of anything different, afraid of Democrats, afraid of others getting to vote, afraid of others having rights, basically it is fear, fear, fear. Right wing media is the same, fear, fear, be afraid. It is all they have left.

I read that this was a test given to black people trying to vote.   I couldn’t pass this.   Ron and I couldn’t even agree on what some of the questions were asking for.   Notice it says one wrong answer and you fail!   No vote for you.  Now that SCOTUS has made legal the poll tax in Florida, is a test to vote far behind?    Hugs

  • Re: the Cuomo “jokes” —

    Have you read the hullabaloo about the FBI checking into the sexual accusations made against Kavanaugh — that they may very well be true? (Code Word: Cover-up)

    What gets me about this is Kavanaugh was accused yet judged “innocent” — while Cuomo is accused and automatically considered guilty. And since his position is not as high up the ladder as Kavanaugh’s, he will end up having to resign and probably lose all credibility and probably not be able to hold a political office again. YET … he is facing the SAME type of accusations as were made against Kavanaugh.

    Personally, I think ANY of this sexual stuff boils down to M.O.N.E.Y. The lawyers make a bundle either way and if the woman wins, she does too — whether any of it is true or not. In the meantime, the accused gets raked over the coals and may or may not be able to continue in politics.

    • Hello Nan. Yes I read about the Kavanaugh FBI investigation review.

      https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/mar/16/fbi-brett-kavanaugh-background-check-fake

      I have always said to listen to the accusers and to investigate the claims. Some can be ruled out right away, others take time. If it is credible then the accused may have to take leave or stop supervising the accuser.

      Here is the thing with the Cuomo situation that bothers me, it is very creditable yet also very political. Cuomo is known for playing very hardball politics. Such as the news that one of his biggest supporters and also person in charge of vaccine distribution called around to places, staff, and other state departments to ask if those people and departments supported Cuomo and how much they did. Most interviewed now say they felt pressured to back the governor. The other side of the coin is tRump and the Republicans desperately want Cuomo gone and are not above manufacturing a story or faking things that later turn out to be different than said. I look back to the Al Franken accusation. Right from the get go everyone was aghast, why there was even a couple mocked up pictures. He had to go before an investigation. Yet the investigation found out he did not do what he was accused of. He never touched her, and the woman was pushed forward and the hit job funded by far right wing media and the Mercer family ( Breitbart News ). The thing about the picture is he is not touching her breasts, his fingers are above and his hand forms a cage above her breast in the air. He claims he did not touch her breast and from the picture I believe him. I can not remember if she was really sleeping or if it was part of the gag photo the group of them were trying to make. But by the time the truth came out he was all ready rushed out of office. On the other hand Cuomo is accused of touching under a woman’s clothing and there is a picture of him holding a woman’s face. The number are starting to build up. So for me I am trying to with hold judgement until the investigations are done yet still post some of the cartoons on the subject. Some are a step too far for me to post at this time. I will say this, if he is found not guilty he will come back even stronger and more hardball than before. One thing I have seen is the thread on right wing blogs that if they can get rid of Cuomo they can put a Republican in the governorship who will pardon tRump if the AG or someone else convicts him of a crime. That wont happen, I don’t think. Hugs

      • Just a comment on the face-touching — for many men (especially in public office), such an action is done without even thinking about it. It’s a “nothing” gesture. And the thing is … many women are NOT offended for a couple of reasons: (1) they enjoy the attention, and (2) they are flattered that it’s being done by someone in a recognized “position.” If the woman doesn’t like it, she should do or say something right then. Or at the very least, get word back to the male individual at a later time — via another person, if necessary.

        But most of them don’t — because #1.

        Now the “under the blouse” situation … I tend to think it’s fake. JMO, but since it’s one of those stories that can’t be “proved” (no witnesses), I have strong doubts. And the other women? It’s simply to add fuel to the fire that his opponents have started.

        Now think about the situation with Kavanaugh — that situation was entirely different (potential sex being involved), was much more invasive, and the woman was able to spell it out in detail. Yet he was excused.

        Anyway, that’s my two-cents.

        • Hello Nan. Good points. Valid points. I admit to not looking into each point deeply, just general news articles. As for Kavanaugh it was clear he was not investigated by the FB!, that the Republicans and tRump were playing a game. I think if it turns out there was an fake investigation then another real one should be done. And if crime found he should be impeached. Remember there was a slew of ethics complains from women against him that had to be dismissed due to him getting on SCOTUS.
          Hugs
