I'm saddened at the ending of political cartoons. No room for satire (from either side of the aisle) any more in the Age of Outrage. :ohno:

I’ve seen a lot more brutal cartoons than that, circa 1880. :nod:

So anyone else following the story of the journalist assaulted by antifa to the point he apparently had a brain hemorrhage?

I especially love people characterizing Quillette (who this journalist works for) as right-wing by Huff Poop and The Guardian even though it's about the consummate leftist outlet aside from not drinking the inersectionality kool aide on race and sex transgender issues.

Quillette is one of the last outlets for 20th century liberalism. Eventually they will be marginalized as racist and misogynistic, just as the center right is marginalized by the far right as squishy and weak.

Quillette is not the outlet to watch - they are already labeled. The Atlantic and even Salon are starting to grumble a bit about the illiberal left - when they lose The Atlantic and Salon that's when you'll know the real pushback is beginning.

Well, when the KKK has a march with literally about a dozen people I hear about it in new sites I read, so I'm assuming if this was actually something noteworthy I'd hear about it.

File this under “damned if you do, damned if you don’t”

Dunkin Donuts is pulling franchises for not using e-Verify when hiring workers (a stipulation in their franchise contracts

Over/under on how long it takes Dunkin (and maybe even e-Verify) to be branded as racist?

A brand new building with a Dunkin Donuts closed out here after less than 3 months in business. I figured it was just because they sucked, but after seeing this, maybe not,

BTW - many on the left have been saying all along that if you want to curtail illegal immigration, go after the employers.

Maybe lock some of them in cages, or take away their children when they employ illegals - I am sure Barron would be happier out of the White House, anyways

Fastest way to fix the problem... is to seriously penalize the companies that hire illegals

Yep - I agree

Good for Dunkin Donuts.

But now the quandary .... in response to Jon above: is Dunkin Donuts doing the right thing by denying employment to illegals still the way forward for "many on the left", or is it racist and anti-immigrant?

I mean, if paroling them into the country is the humanitarian thing to do, shouldn't giving them employment also be the humanitarian thing to do... since they surely don't partake of need-based public assistance (snicker)?
