Mister Rogers evicted from neighborhood

Rob Rogers seems pretty on point to me. | Rob Rogers/Andrews-McMeel Syndication

A comrade bites the Big Orange Bullet.

Seems the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette thinks more of the free-press-hating Il Douche than it does of its own editorial cartoonist.

Former editorial cartoonist, that is.

According to The Washington Post, the Pittsburgh paper’s management had begun regularly spiking Rob Rogers’ cartoons, many of which were critical of the country’s management. And as cartoonists tend to want to see their work published, while fascists tend to lack a sense of humor, well, matters came to a head, as they will.

It sucks to see an editorial cartoonist get the heave-ho after a quarter-century for doing his job. There aren’t that many of them left — hell, there aren’t that many newspapers left.

But good on Rob for sticking to his guns and hollering “Bullshit!” when he smelled some. The PP-G editorial page should include a complimentary scratch-and-sniff air freshener henceforth.

• Late update: Rob steps away from the drawing board for a moment to write a short piece for the NYT.

    Those c*cks*ckers from the Shithole Post-Gazette should be tarred and feathered. As you and I recall, it was folks like Herblock who told us the truth, editorial cartoon style, in times past.

    Whoever branded this guy “Orange Hitler” was dead right. I’m sure he asked Kim for some tips on how to be a dictator. He seems to really, really like these authoritarian rulers – hard not to think he wants to emulate them based on his actions so far. Fascism seems to be on the rise all over again these days, including here in Italy.
    Gawd help us all.

      No kidding, Larry. And all those Second Amendment purists are supporting the guy who will try to overthrow the government. Stupidity makes you free? Wonder what the translation is for that.
