On May 30, he criticized the NFL again, joking it was closed for “racial ignorance training” in light of Starbucks closing many of its locations for racial sensitivity training:
His Memorial Day sketch depicted a caricature of Trump placing a wreath on the grave of Truth, Honor and the Rule of Law:
On May 31, Rogers satirized Roseanne Barr’s claim that her racist tweets were a result of her taking sleeping pills:
The June 1 cartoon criticized Trump for his immigration policies…
…while on June 3, Rogers satirized Trump’s claim he could pardon himself in the Russia investigation:
None of these cartoons appeared in the Post-Gazette, despite Rogers being the paper’s full-time staff political cartoonist.
Now, more than ever, I believe in the power of satire and the public dialogue that it can create. Thank you for being part of that dialogue.
So, the Toledo editors CENSORED Rogers’ cartoons!!!!!!!!!!!! Where are we? 1930’s Berlin! This Fascist Conservative Brown Shirt stuff is VERY DANGEROUS.
It’s so stupid that the PG board would weaken the paper and insult we readers by suppressing Rob Rogers’ great work.
