    I just can’t say anything on this than laugh…

    They’re still debating this question in France, aren’t they? After all, they nearly had Jean-Marie LePen as president once because of allowing him his freedom of expression. The country had to rally to get him out of the running. They certainly scared themselves: they suddenly imagined what it would actually be like to have an insane, racist president. They had figured if they allowed him to have his party and speak publically it would be better than censoring him, because that way the bigots would have an outlet and could be observed openly. Problem was that they actually managed to get quite a lot of bigot-converts due to fears about immigration.

    I think they’re still ruminating over that whole episode. The fact was, they voted him out of the running, rather than censor him, which would be a good example of democracy. On the other hand, they got stuck with a president they didn’t necessarily want, just because it was either him or LePen by that time. I think they’ll be more careful in the future.

    looks like Mo needs to learn how to spell 😉

    as a college professor of Composition I must ask you to more carefully edit your work. in the 2nd panel of today’s Bigot piece you have made an error which many of my students make frequently. i.e., the use of a locational word [THERE ] for the posseive pronouon [THEIR ].
    Thank you for your creativity and congratulations at earning the status of BANNED IN the UAE !!
    Well done ! or in Naval flag language ” ZULU BRAVO”

    Aargh! Thanks, Tea and Lou. Will fix asap! (I will also make sure Mo performs a suitable penance – he can be such an embarrassment sometimes!)

  6. Sylvia says:

    Do you have a link for that news story? Something similar is going on where I live.

  7. JohnnieCanuck says:

    I pity the job applicant, if the only penalty meted out is that he must be hired.

  8. TaoAndZen says:

    “First they came for the bigots…” Now that is VERY good. Kudos. (And laughs.)

  9. Sylvia says:

    Ta very much.

  10. Markk says:

    They make a good point, in a roundabout way. There is no sense in forcing someone to hire an employee they do not want to work with. How in the world are they going to be able to work together on a day to day basis? And what does it achieve to suppress free speech?

  11. louis says:

    that is one of the best strips you’ve done! so many quotable lines! bravo!!

  12. Drunk (from earlier) says:

    So, I’m not usually one for excessive commercialism, but I think the J&Mo shop needs more merchandise. I want to spread the word… by wearing it.

  13. John says:

    Very, very funny. The last line by Jesus ijust cracked me up.

  14. It wasn’t inattention that got Le Pen into the runoff, it was an uneven split in the (relatively) non-wacko vote. Plurality election favors the factions with the best organization, not the most reasonable.

  15. Ellison Wonderland says:

    hilarious…the “first they came for the bigots” line made me cringe

  16. peterNW1 says:

    This one’s not too subtle.

  17. Huinca says:

    Yes, it’s kind of overloaded. But Mo’s line ‘sincerely believe’ is very good.

  18. Colonel Aardvark says:

    Hilarious – however it is spelt.

  19. Ivan says:

    To read that story of French errors over similar loudmouths (Trump) current in the USA as of this moment – it is truly amazing the comparison has not previously appeared anywhere, to my knowledge.
