Cartoon: SDGOP Attacks American Ideals with Zombie Legislation

We are the dead… the Walking Dead:

SD Legislature: Zombies of bigoted legislation
Jo Johnson, 2020.03.01

So says Jo Johnson of the ravenously bigoted legislation with which Republican legislators like Tony Randolph, Fred Deutsch, and Lee Qualm are scaring young people away from South Dakota.

Al Novstrup would say that if you aren’t comfortable with him and his friends and their constant resurrection of bigoted legislation that deserves to die, you should flee to some other state, where such grim monstrosities do not rise from the muck each winter. But why should we grant zombies any safe haven for their virulent attacks on the American ideals of Liberty and Justice for All?

    Alas, the Legislature is committed to taking us back to the 1950s, not the 1960s.

    I just do not get what the folks in Pierre do.

    I’d say 80-90% of people in SD have the same general views. Then there are the other 10-20% that have views that vary from slight to majorly different from the majority.

    Why do the elected folks in Pierre feel they need to piss off that 10-20% group of people? As somebody who is in business, the last thing I want to do is piss off even 1 of my customers.

    legislators, stop pissing people off and trying to drive people away.

    Another excellent cartoon, Ms. Johnson.

    The bigotry in Pierre is mind numbing.
    It also makes me sick.
    Our unfortunate version of the KKK.
    Don’t kid yourself, if the Dope Queen
    of Delusion and her flying monkeys
    could turn the dogs and fire hoses
    on us she would.
    She would have gallows on the State Capital lawn if she could.
    Cruelty instead of compassion.
    Rejection instead of inclusion.

    You can bury your dead and not leave a Trace.
    Hate your next door neighbor but don’t
    forget to say grace.
    Barry McGuire, 1964.
