This is my Counterpoint cartoon from last week. It appeared alongside a Rob Rogers cartoon and here’s what I had to say about it:

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler joined the mob Wednesday night and got booed and teargassed for his efforts. And I got a cartoon idea. But my sketch contained a couple of mental maneuvers making it  tough on the poor reader. Not only that, my lefty Counterpoint counterpart Rob Rogers didn’t care for the whole point of the thing. He thought Mayor Wheeler had done a splendid job over the past 50 days during which the mob trashed his town’s working class shopkeepers.  And, “oh, by the way,” Rob added, “why don’t you tweak that cartoon and just have the woman say, “Where’s the mayor when you need him”? Perfect. Thanks, Rob, you ignorant slut.

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam is defending the state senate’s Red Flag gun law. He was last seen defending late term abortions and apologizing for wearing blackface.

But many Virginians seem to think Northam has his ban impulse backwards. And about 20,000 of them marched in protest of the gun law.

That set off a minor media hysteria about white supremacist gun violence. But the armed marchers behaved and even cleaned up their trash.

Which didn’t stop the senate from passing the bill anyway.

Anyway it looks like the Very Stable Genius got the best of the Austere Religious Scholar.

Governor Blackface

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam doesn’t regret his abortion comments. But he does regret dressing up in black face for a Michael Jackson dance contest. His wife probably doesn’t regret preventing him from moonwalking at his press conference.

Micro-Aggressions and Punchable Faces

Some on the left want to protect college students from speech and ideas that offend them. But some on the same side wish to punch a MAGA hat wearing 16 year old boy in the face.

And that offends University of Wisconsin Law School professor emerita Ann Althouse:

“It just beggars belief that the same liberals who fret about ‘micro-aggressions’ for 20-somethings were able to see 16-year-olds absorbing the worst racist garbage from religious bigots…”
