I’ve spent most years of my life marching on the streets of protest against injustice. Opposing racism, sexism, class exploitation…opposing imperial nations; but, circumstances pretty much guaranteed most of the time I had to deal with the GOUSA. Our press, our politicians, rarely speak out unless the guilty party is a furriner. Even among the cartoonists whose commentary I post here daily, only Ted Rail has stood up straight and strong.
If the crocodile tears for Ukraine were to wash away the names of all those nations on the cell wall, I need only write one to remind my peers of our history: VIETNAM.
