Left to their own devices, Republicans have no integrity.
Uh, thanks Al, but no one asked for your racist opinion.
What’s that? It’s not your racist opinion, it’s just your lying opinion?
I think it’s both.
Wow. That is one crappy cartoon.
The Georgia Lt. Gov. has admitted that the law came about because the state legislature bought into Trump and Giuliani’s lies about the election.
“Election Integrity” is the 21st Century version of “States’ Rights.” We all know what they mean and what their actual intentions are.
When the facts don’t support your position, LIE (if you’re a Republican).
Goodwyn is no different than the cartoonists who drew anti-Civil Rights cartoons in the 1960’s.
A bogus solution in search of a problem. At its core is the big lie that the 2020 election was stolen.
The For the People Act, “HR1”, is a bill in the United States Congress to expand voting rights, change campaign finance laws to reduce the influence of money in politics, limit partisan gerrymandering, and create new ethics rules for federal office holders. Yeah, sounds like something Al would be against. I mean what would the county come to if actual ISSUES influenced voting instead of voter suppression.
Republican and integrity are two words that don’t go together.
Why is that the GOP lost confidence in elections only when they started losing them?
You begin to see how wrong a 2 party system can be when stereotypes like racism deviate from reality. The very idea of trying to build a nation with two deeply confrontational forces is not rational and leads to inaccurate exaggerations.
Where do America’s most racist people live? “The rural Northeast and South,” suggests a new study just published in PLOS ONE.
The 2020 election was the most secure and the most investigated of any election in our history. Trump started the lie that the only way he could lose was if it was rigged long before the election. Some have decided to believe that only on the basis of what Trump said. Some other senators and reps joined in the constant drum beat that the election was rigged, and many in the GOP took the bait and believe it to be true. Look at the facts. Stop believing anything that comes out of Trump’s mouth. He is a constant liar, and that has been proved over and over. Just because you want something to be true doesn’t make it true.
The election integrity “problem” is a false narrative perpetuated by a party that has lost touch with America. It is little more than a desperate attempt to hold on to power that they no longer deserve.
Even the ACLU understands this is a poorly written bill that needs major edits, but no, it does not diminish election integrity [https://www.aclu.org/blog/free-speech/campaign-finance-reform/congress-lets-fix-problems-hr-1-so-we-can-enact-bills-much]
Do not feed the troll. If you must respond do so in thread and not as a reply to it.
Just a lie, Al. Shame on you.
Does Goodwyn really believe this misinformation? Or is he as cynical as McConnell?
Racist republican liars want ‘election integrity’ laws that will ignore black votes.
The fascist republican minority is afraid of a free and fair election.
Record number of people now identifying as Democrats while GOP backing slumpsThe nine-point boost to Democrats is the largest since 2012
In some states, election integrity is making it difficult for the “wrong” people to vote. Though the bill may be awkwardly worded, the goal is good and may shatter the dam holding back American voters, as portrayed.
Sure, allowing all eligible citizens to vote – and making it easier for them – destroys election integrity… it’s not like voting is a Constitutional right…
Here’s a comic based on “The Big Lie”
Al, you need to cut down on the “magic alternative fact mushrooms”. Try to remember some of the words your false messiah told you: “What you’re seeing and what you’re reading is not what’s happening.”
Will someone please tell Goodwyn that there is no meaningful election fraud and there hasn’t been in at least twenty years.
In Al’s universe, voter suppression is called “Election Integrity”, especially that nugget where Republicans can fire local election officials, replace them with their own people and invalidate the results.
“Much of the work administering elections in Georgia is handled by the state’s 159 counties. The law gives the State Election Board new powers to intervene in county election offices and to remove and replace local election officials. That has led to concerns that the Republican-controlled state board could exert more influence over the administration of elections, including the certification of county results.
One target for intervention could be Fulton County, a Democratic stronghold that contains most of Atlanta. The heavily populated county has been plagued by problems, including long lines, and it is often singled out by Republican officials. Under the law, the board could intervene in up to four counties at a time and install a temporary superintendent with the ability to hire and fire personnel including elections directors and poll officers."
It’s not the votes that count, but the ones who count the votes.
“Those who cast the votes decide nothing. Those who count the votes decide everything,”
I see Trump’s leaky border wall with the Dems coming in to trash the stupid thing. Good one, Al!
Show me how much corruption and voter fraud was uncovered in the last election Al. None to very little is the answer. There should no longer be any question about what’s going on here: The GOP, having determined that free and fair elections no longer work in its favor, is engaged in a national campaign to undermine voter access on a scope not seen since the days of Jim Crow. Stopping them should be a national priority for Democrats, Republicans of conscience and anyone else who still believes in democracy.
Outside the alternate reality that is MAGA-world, the facts about last year’s presidential election aren’t in dispute: It was the most closely watched, diligently reviewed national election in U.S. history, with dozens of judges and countless state Republican election officials investigating one Trumpian fraud claim after another, and finding not one iota of evidence of even significant voter fraud — let alone the massive fraud that would have been necessary to negate Joe Biden’s 7-million-vote victory over Donald Trump.
Here’s why there’s a lot of reader blowback on Goodwyn’s political cartoons: they present the Trumpublican Party line from Fox News and similar limited-perspective news sources. Many people who read cartoons on GoComics also read a large number of newsfeeds and often news magazines as well, such as (but not limited to) CNN, MSNBC, MSNews, The Guardian, USA Today, The New York Times, the New York Post, the Wall Street Journal, ABC, Associated Press, CNET, Newsweek, The Hill, Today, AND Fox News. When they do this, they come see a consensus regarding the facts of a situation. They also read books and have considerable education, acquired from educational institutions and/or self-study, as well as considerable life experience. Reading Fox News and their ilk and comparing what is being said to the wider range of news sources, here’s what we see Fox et al. doing as a matter of standard operating procedure: 1. Obscuring or omitting facts (reported in the larger field of news sources) which do not support the party line. 2. Presenting actions or situations that actually occurred out of chronological order, to support the party line. 3. Exaggerating or misrepresenting situations that occurred in order to support the party line. 4. Supporting the use of deceptive language to label legislation, like the GA legislature claiming that the voter suppression bill they just passed is designed to insure elections are fair and honest, when in fact if you read it it’s clear that it is designed to empower the legislature to restrict voting by people likely to vote Democratic and provide the Republican legislature the tools to overturn election results it doesn’t like. It’s kind of like China calling itself the People’s Republic of China. It ain’t a Republic and all the Chinese know it, but what can they do? Best we speak up while we can. 5. If all else fails, just make something up that never happened and hope no one calls you on it. (continued).
Trumpublican true believers usually don’t call out these misrepresentations because they only read the party line news and don’t realize what’s really going on – or they fully support such reporting.
So Trumpublican cartoonists shouldn’t be surprised to get pushback. They’re welcome to return to the light and would be greeted with glad cries.
