Ah, yes; the Abbott/DeSantis method.
the dumbing don of the GOP
Is she wearing a miniature satellite dish? To receive instructions from the mother-ship
Wiley, you’re giving this guy way too much credit with his first 5 words.
How much longer before they start advocating for an end to public education altogether?
We LEARN from the past.
Well,…. Some of us do.
Oh, no, it’s so much better to just rewrite history to agree with your views.
One day – History will just give up on us because of all our bickering.
All while testing the premise of those who fail to learn from history……
If we stop teaching history, eventually the world will stop making history.
Funny how, nowaday, it’s the (far) left that burns books and try to rewrite history every chance they get…
To the statement from @comic4matt (“Funny how, nowaday, it’s the (far) left that burns books and try to rewrite history every chance they get…”)
Any examples? Book burning,especially.
She may be blonde, but that’s almost an afro.
Love the little “portrait” of the Qanon “Shaman” hanging on the wall! Great touch in a scathing cartoon!
Make America Stupid Again, wait, wait, it already is….job done.
A Nazi carrying a flaming torch?? Be afraid – be VERY afraid!!
Already under fire in Florida, Texas, and Arizona.
Because it might make a snowflake, you know, uncomfortable.
Considering the quality of public education for funds appropriated. Public education has ended — dead ended.
It’s not that they advocate not teaching history. They want history taught the way they see it. Lost Cause, anyone? Or any number of revisionist Nazi history concerning the Eastern Front propagated by Nazi generals after 1945. The untermensch of the East defeated the best divisions of the Nazi army on the Eastern Front. What does that say about the master race?
Need to include the religious right indoctrinating children into their warped brand of Christianity that teaches hate for anything not white and heterosexual.
Trump said something similar about Covid-19. He was grousing about so many people were testing positive, so he told (my words) some reporter if “Testing would just stop, there would be no more people with Covid and it would just go away”.
The Republican party sitting at a bar………pretty accurate!
They ignored history because they are on the road to repeat it.
Okay. That is likely my limit.
Wiley seems to increasingly have turned into a dogmatic systematically indoctrinated hate-spewing partisan zealot, who consistently communicates via divisive twisted funhouse mirror straw man propaganda, and cannot possibly be reasoned with, as he isn’t interested in any compromises or middle-ground, just in demonisation and complete dead earth destruction of anybody who disagree with him in the slightest, much like far too many others.
Some of his recent comic strips have entered hate-speech territory, and I am far more interested in holistic social healing, balance, and civil conversation to find constructive solutions.
Can it be dumbed down any lower?
The “good ’ol boy” on the right should have a brown shirt to set off the swastika armband.
I like the name of the bar. There’s another one down the street called the “Hold-My-Beer” bar.
This comic has become too obnoxiously political. Pandering to the loony left does no one any good. Sorry but your prejudice has taken over your ability to entertain.
Or maybe just enough reading to follow instructions.
It’s the RNC’s home bar… right next to FAUX Noise headquarters.
No, we have to teach history. Otherwise how would we know who to hate?
Let us not forget how the Native Americans rolled out the red carpet for us white folks and our “Manifest Destiny.” (BTW: Hitler loved American Westerns as white people replaced the inferior races – we went west he went east. However to suggest that this was genocide is WOKE.)
Also black people do not have proper respect for white people. After all WE
- Gave them free passage to this great country
- Gave them free room and board
- Gave them a job
- Kept them from being eaten by lions
- Civilized them
- Saved their pagan souls (even the Muslims) by converting them to the white man’s Christianity
Coming soon to History Textbooks in Florida and Texas.
It amuses me when people complain that this comic is too political. a) it often is, b) like so many others, and c) don’t read it.Oh, wait — then where would they get to complain that they are offended?
Wiley launches his Fully Woke coming out party of lies and propaganda. He is no longer trying to offer subtle political commentary. He has decided he needs to push every vilifying leftist fantasy out there to promote the Marxists agenda.
Wiley is too political and pandering to the left? Wow, some of you folks are softer than whipped cream.
Must have hit a nerve with this one.
teach them the college courses in middle school and let them learn history on their own. WWe need smarter drive thru workers anyway :]
The first proponent of the great replacement was Margaret Sanger.
the problem is friends of mine say their kids are already getting glossed over history education in school, too many dead white men. When i was in chicago a few years ago i overheard a high school aged young woman, nicely dressed, at the art museum saying she’d never even heard of Van Gogh until he was on Dr Who.
Reminds me of how GOP Tried to rewrite Wikipedia, after Palin screwed up Paul Revere’s ride: https://www.computerworld.com/article/2509040/sarah-palin-fans-try-to-rewrite-history-on-wikipedia.html
right on point, Mr. Miller. Right on point.
the world was created at the instant i became aware of it, and will cease to exist when i become unaware of it. The only events that matter are those which directly impact me, all other things are irrelevant. All the education you need summed up in a couple sentences. Now why are we wasting money and years of time on education? /s
So wrong, but not incorrect. As they say, the winners write the history books. But, the whiners burn them.
It would be less d visive anyway, and at least youre not “teaching” inaccurate information.“Schools” should be about education, not indoctrination centers for leftist.
Nathan Bedford Forrest, the Donald and Mussolini walk into a bar & grille.
Barkeep: “Table for one?”
Absolutely amazing. All the commenters must have been educated in public schools.
Teaching history is great; teaching children that they were born racists is not. Black and white kids play together and are good friends. Then they go to class and are taught that the white kid really isn’t a friend; he’s a natural born racist. Not all schools have fallen for this, but 1 is too many. Teach kids the truth about the history of the Klan, witch hunts, and facism, which we did do 50 years ago, but don’t tell little kids that they are naturally born to be evil.
Curious how the usual group of Trump supporters here see this rather mild satire on racists and racism as a “leftist” attack on them. Me thinks they doth protest too much.
You forgot to include a fool in a MAGAT hat, Wiley (if you’ll pardon the redundancy).
Senator Robert KKK Byrd, WV, Democrat and KKK Kleagle…Jim Crow laws and the 1964 Civil Rights filibuster were by the Democrats….The War on Poverty and The Great Society were spawned by President Lyndon Johnson, Democrat who purposefully instituted the identity crisis of the Negro, Black, African-American, and People of Color and the destruction of their family units…BTW, the NRA was formed to protect the newly freed Juneteenth slave by ensuring them their 2nd amendment rights for protection from the Lynch Mob Democrats…
This is our future.
“The Yeehaw Bar and Grill”
Jefferson thought a good public education system was in order for the nation.. Seems it’s devolved into a ‘pubic education system’ nowadays..
Culture is what you get by benefiting from the thousands of years of thought and practice of those who have gone before. Opinion is what you get when you don’t really think things through but believe anything a “bubba” tells you.
Honestly, I don’t like using “bubba” as a perjorative any more than “Karen”. I’ve known some very nice bubbas named Karen. :)
Stop teaching history so we won’t learn from our mistakes. Let’s make new ones and hope a new depression doesn’t follow the next recession
On today’s commentary, so as not to promote idiot threads.
It wasn’t more than 20 years ago that the GOP disavowed any affiliation with the John Birch Society.
Ah yes vouchers(the GQP version in OK is to let each kids yearly $$$[which is still one of the lowest in the country]follow the kid, home school, religious school, whatever the basic idea is to destroy common education, which is working without vouchers as more teachers leave every summer and fewer college students want to be underpaid and overworked teachers) the super majority GQP state of Oklahoma tried doing that this year, but the State Senate said no. But it will be back again next year, Gov Stitt really wants it and even if he loses his Jun 28 primary, someone in the Lege will push it next year. Hell both Gov Stitt and the GQP Lege sat on the EPIC home school scandal(the for profit school owners stole tens of millions of $$$ from the state and everyone in power did their best to totally ignore everything) for more than 2 years
“Non Sequitur” seems to be turning into “Doonesbury with Bears.”
Came hear to read all the lefties name calling and trashing people and opinions that don’t completely agree with theirs and Wiley’s.
Was NOT disappointed.
Just go with folklore. We don’t need no stinkin’ books.
The US stopped teaching history decades ago. When I was in high school, I took a “class” called “History of the USSR.” At no point in that class did I learn anything relevant about the history of the USSR, other than a morsel of Marxist philosophy. The entire subject matter was a high school teacher’s interpretation of how to introduce detached students to concepts that would call capitalism into question.
Relevant subjects (among others) not covered, all of which I’ve picked up on my own since then: Pre-USSR history of Kyiv, Novgorod, the Rus, early czars, Moscovy, Poland/Lithuania, Mongolian conquest of Russia, the Great Northern War. The White Russians and the February revolution. Foundation of the USSR and the various republics. Pre-USSR history of any of the 15 republics, even including Russia. The assassination attempt on Lenin. Anything at all about Trotsky, Beria, Molotov, Malenkov, Stalin, Khrushchev or Brezhnev. Role of the USSR in World War II. Anything at all about the uprisings in Hungary and Czechoslovakia. Anything at all about the Cuban Missile Crisis.
US history was taught a teensy bit better. They did manage to actually mention that we had had a Civil War.
But Our Southern Heritage!
Does the falling of a tree make a sound if there is no one to hear it? Is history still being made if there is no one to remember it?
Isaac Asimov nailed it in a Newsweek essay back in 1980 -
“There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that ’my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.”
“We have a new buzzword, too, for anyone who admires competence, knowledge, learning and skill, and who wishes to spread it around. People like that are called “elitists”.
The unacknowledged problem here is that CRT and 1619 proponents advocate for a version of history which amounts to myth theory n supported by the facts. The left goes along with it to absolve themselves of some perceived guilt which is baseless. It isn’t conservatives who are ignoring and rewriting history. It is the far left.
Remind me to avoid the Yee Haw Bar & Grill! Actually, never mind…the fact that it’s named “Yee Haw” is more than enough to keep me away.
Buzz words like “critical race theory” allow critics to dismiss it as just another ultra-liberal movement. I’m in favor of the straight-forward teaching of what actually happened in America’s history. 1619 happened. Slavery happened. Juneteenth happened. Jim Crow happened. Lynching happened. The burning or bombing of homes, churches, and sometimes whole neighborhoods happened. The civil rights movement happened. The killing of civil rights leaders and workers happened. Anyone who thinks these facts shouldn’t be taught in schools should be obligated to explain why.
The hilarious satellite-dish-hat reminds me of comedian Al Franken and his aluminum-foil-headed-contraption character. He was a great Senator whose absence has contributed enormously to incomprehensible tragedy.
I love the Yee Haw Bar and Grill. The QAnon federal prisoner is on the wall in his old costume.
Replacement Theory : GOP speak for fear of the “Browning of America.”
When the minority becomes the majority the fear is that they will treat us they way we treat them.
Toppling statues and trashing monuments is an excellent start.
Poor Wiley, fearing that there’s enough people like that to bother making a cartoon about. Is that a mini satellite dish on the lady’s head?
Good God the level of ignorance I see commentors here and by Wily is amazing. Robert Byrd The former Senator of West Virginia was a KKK member. The KKK is mostly associated with the DNC not the RNC. The NAZI got many of there ideas from the DNC. its history look it up. I enjoy this cartoon but Wiley has to do some research if he’s going to make political points. The Idea of Critical Race Theory is pretty much what todays cartoon is about but not by the Conservative side.
P.S. The current Abortion law that the Supreme Court isn’t about outlawing Abortions federally, but letting states decide weather to allow abortions or not.
Is that Lauren BoobBart’s joint?
