    Anyone who knows history knows the Democratic Party were the people who wanted slavery. Republicans fought to end slavery right along beside fellow Republican Abe Lincoln. Now Biden is using the IRS and police to go after you if you are a black,, White, Asian, Native American, Hispanic if you are a Republican. He hates you no matter your race if you are a Republican. And, he is suppose to represent all Americans? Just another lie from another democrat.

  4. Erik V on November 18, 2022 at 9:33 pm

    Ironic considering the KKK was formed exclusively by Democrats.

  5. Roger Phillips on November 18, 2022 at 9:34 pm

    Demoncrats were the confederacy and are now communists. They are hateful and want to divide Americans by race. I love Robinson! Hope he can become a national leader. He is a strong Christian.

    The 2028 president

  7. Brett LaBelle on November 18, 2022 at 9:35 pm

    I’m shocked how often I see his mouth open, yet he isn’t eating. How does he get that fat? How does anybody?

  8. Marlena Linne on November 18, 2022 at 9:35 pm

    I guess he is a snowflake ❄️

    Ignorant

  34. Eddie Benson on November 18, 2022 at 10:11 pm

  35. andrew jaussi on November 18, 2022 at 10:13 pm

    Mark Robinson for President if Trump does not run.

  36. Bill Modlin on November 18, 2022 at 10:14 pm

    "Their voices heard".
    As they beat cops with lead pipes and hunted down lawmakers and the vice-president with the intent to kill them.
    What planet is this nutjob from.

  37. Phil Brodie on November 18, 2022 at 10:15 pm

    God bless this man

  38. Underground92 on November 18, 2022 at 10:18 pm

    I wonder if todays modern republicans would support Eisenhower and previous republicans in the past? Because I guarantee you they wouldn’t one bit. The ole Democratic Party was the party of small government and state rights, and the ole Republican Party of more government and less power to the states. My oh my, republicans and democrats have sure changed a lot since then!

  39. R Grandmont on November 18, 2022 at 10:18 pm

    John burt I think you sound like the typical closet klansman. You just don’t have enough balls to admit it . Idiousy runs deep with you

  40. Steve_Pistoffski on November 18, 2022 at 10:20 pm

    Great Man and leader!!!

  41. Lin Dickison on November 18, 2022 at 10:21 pm

    Very poor taste for either side..more like the mind of a 7-grader than "responsible" adults.

  42. Blips Mann on November 18, 2022 at 10:23 pm

    It would be funny if that teacher got offed !!!! By another democrat. 🤞🏻

  43. Conman Clakkamus on November 18, 2022 at 10:23 pm

    We need Chris sununu and Mark Robinson in the White House I don’t care who gets the presidency or the vice presidency just as long as both of those strong-minded, common Sense men run this country

  44. amoskowitz0103 on November 18, 2022 at 10:25 pm

    This guy is SO awesome!

  45. Grant McCoy on November 18, 2022 at 10:25 pm

    I guess the cartoon is saying that Republicans are like modern conservatives of the past, for example the kkk.

  46. haneyedu on November 18, 2022 at 10:26 pm

    I wish we had a man with half his character and morals as our governor in Indiana!!! Raise the bar high!

  47. Jadzia Dax on November 18, 2022 at 10:26 pm

    Stumbled on your words man just like President Biden.
    The majority of the people who went to DC on January 6 are Seditious traitors and should be held accountable as such.

  48. Ernest Bryan on November 18, 2022 at 10:27 pm

    It is strange that the Democrat Party still calls Republicans NAZIS And KKK members When it Was The Democrat Party that started the KKK And It’s The Democrat Party’s ANTIFA And BLM peoples That zare Acting Like NAZIS Brown Shirts ! By Looting and Burning Down innocent People’s Businesses and homes during the Rioting That The Mainstreaming Media Was Calling Peaceful Protesters ! Look up The Night Of Broken Glass ! That’s when The NAZI Brown Shirts Looted And Burned Down Innocent Jewish Homes And Businesses ! And the Looting that continues even today ! Because Socialist Democrat Prosecutors refuses to the Prosecution of shop lifters calling shop lifting Reparation’s ?

  49. William Newell on November 18, 2022 at 10:28 pm
