Welp, put a mark on the wall, Benny boy made a good comic once in a while. Heck, he's not even using that many labels this time.

Geeze, Garrison must have had a stroke from the struggle between his racism and his anti-cop stance.

This year just keeps getting weirder!

This is unusually drawn for Garrison (might be one someone did for him):

This looks like Ben again (especially with Trumps bulging biceps):

*Spoilered the Garrison Cartoons as they are big

This one's actually very simple to explain.  MAGAts believe THEY shouldn't EVER be told what to do, but everyone who isn't a MAGAt?  They should do whatever the MAGAts say or else...

It's more like conservatives are reactionary and protest against change or anything that goes against the status quo. Liberals protest for change and conservatives don't understand why you would try to change something that works perfectly fine for them.

Quote from: Ambrose Bierce
Conservative, n. A statesman who is enamored of existing evils, as distinguished from the Liberal, who wishes to replace them with others.
Quote from: Jordan Duram
It doesn't concern you, Sister, that kind of absolutist view of the universe? Right and wrong determined solely by a single all-knowing, all powerful being whose judgment cannot be questioned and in whose name the most horrendous acts can be sanctioned without appeal?

Quote from: Supreme Court of Canada
Being required by someone else’s religious beliefs to behave contrary to one’s sexual identity is degrading and disrespectful.

Garrison update - Spoilered because mostly they are massive.

This first one is classic Garrison before he really got into the racism:

This one is classic post racism Garrison:

This one is part of his series on General Flynn:

This one is about John Bolton's book and is really unusual as it actually shows Trump as weak:

The Walrus really has Garrison freaked out going by the overwhelming presence Bolton has.

Maybe he loves Bolton more than he loves Trump?

No he doesn't like Bolton because he's a warmonger but Garrison, like Trump, has a fascination with people who appear strong.

Bolton himself is clearly a massive piece of shit blaming the democrats for stuffing up the impeachment but refusing to testify unless forced.

Personally, I don't think it was entirely due to his book.  Ultimately, Bolton's a Republican; even though he hates Trump, he's one of those hoping that the Repub Party bounces back from Trumpism and he can join it again.  So he doesn't want to appear to be working with the Dems.  Hence doing everything in his power to not testify, despite knowing full well crimes were committed.  And bashing the Dems now for "not widening the scope" is for Fox News.

In fairness, they should have widened the scope; Trump has indisputably been in violation of the Constitution literally since the moment he took the oath of office.

Implying any of the entrenched political class actually wanted the guy out as much as the American people generally do. There were a couple crimes of his they could have gotten him on but they also enabled plenty of the authoritarian shit. Pelosi, for example, aided Trump by extending warrant-less domestic surveillance when other better democrats (like Ellison) were introducing bills to try and stop it. I'm convinced that blowback of Pelosi's own involvement with helping Trump violate laws and people's rights being pointed out is the only reason a more comprehensive case wasn't put forward. We need a better speaker candidate that has all of the good ideas socially the democrats represent but who also has enough of a spine to do more than just symbolically standing up to Trump by calling him fat and like... actually stop allowing the persecution that arises from giving unlimited powers to the shadiest parts of the american intelligence apparatus

In fairness on the point, Congress ceding more and more power to the President has been going on for decades, well before any of the current crop were anywhere near office.

It needs to be undone but that would take supermajorities to override, which because of how partisan US politics has become is basically impossible. Neither side is willing to strip away power from the Presidency as long as it's their person in charge.

Just admit you want to call them "The Deep State", but you don't want people to think you're crazy as shit.

This reads like pure conspiracy-mongering. You have no proof about your assertions, any more than the average Trump Supporter rambling on about the Deep State. Pelosi's been incredibly competent in minimizing losses during the Trump years, so I'd be interested in hearing who you'd think might be a "better speaker of the house".

But then, I'm a damn dirty corporate democrat myself, so...I guess I'm just corrupt from a base level.
