Editorial Cartoonist Fired For Calling Out Trumpery

Detroit Free Press: Pittsburgh Post-Gazette cartoonist fired

“A longtime newspaper cartoonist who says his work has been banished from the editorial page lately because of “political differences” with his editors says he’s been fired.

“Rob Rogers tweeted Thursday he’s been fired after 25 years as the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s editorial cartoonist. The paper has declined to run many of his cartoons in recent months.”

Stop Saying It’s Un-American

Stop saying it’s Un-American. It’s 100% American and has been since the beginning. The lives of children of color have never mattered to this government. And we have conveniently not ratified the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, which states that children should never be separated from their families except when their safety is at risk. See how they twist it. You can be sure they have discussed all of this with their lawyers. They are the worst kind of criminals, cruel and heartless. They should all be in prison. Forever. #Repost @amplifierart • • • • • From our friends at @calendow: “FRONT PAGE OF THE NEW YORK TIMES: Families seeking asylum and a better future are being separated daily — the children are labeled “unaccompanied minors” and sent to government custody or foster care, and the parents are labeled “criminals” and sent to jail. They are literally being separated, indefinitely, everyday, in our name. #FamiliesBelongTogether”
