This week’s Dustinland comic harkens back to the Bush era and the old phrase “the terrorists win.” Back then it was used by Bush and co (including tens of millions of Trump supporters who like to pretend they didn’t vote for Bush) to silence dissent with patriotism. I’m repurposing the phrase and using it to describe what is actually happening, which is the terrorists are getting exactly what they wanted. And yes, I’m not afraid to say Islamic terrorists, because that’s what we’re talking about. Their goal was an has been to destroy the West from within, to spread fear, to use our strengths against us, and it really seems to be working. The U.S., half of Europe, we’ve all been blinded into voting for the biggest assholes who use our fear of terror attacks and Muslim culture in general to grab power and twist laws. So while the common folk debate whether there should be a travel ban to the Mid East or not, Trump and his buddies will be filling their pockets, erasing freedom of the press and making it impossible to vote for a Democrat. So there you have it. Democracy traded for the illusion of safety.

This week’s Dustinland comic was inspired by the NYC bombings. I pretty much say all I have to say about the subject in the strip. This is more of a place for people to discuss it. Aside from the 5,000 social media channels I engage on as well. But yes, these last 15 years or so sure do make you wish for the days when the worst thing on the news was the president getting a blowjob.

Would you consider this week’s Dustinland comic to be NSFW? I think it’s debatable. I mean, asshole is a curse, but it’s certainly not a four-letter word. It’s one of those borderline curses. Like, I wouldn’t want my kid using it but if he was 14 and it slipped out, it wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world. I mean, we all say it. We all think it. It’s just the perfect word for that kind of person. And sadly that kind of person is everywhere. And I have been thinking about it a lot lately, because there are so many troubles in the world today being caused by so few people. It just seems like assholism will be an eternal problem that we may never be able to fully combat.
