Rob Rogers is the guest on this week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show. He is a nationally-syndicated political cartoonist who worked with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette newspaper for 25 years before being fired several weeks ago. Why? Because he refused to stop telling truth about Donald Trump.
During this episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show, Rob Rogers and Chauncey discuss the personal costs of telling the truth about Donald Trump's regime in an era of cowardice as well as how Rogers decided to not compromise and sell out his principles to the Trump-allied publisher and new editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Rob Rogers also shares his insights about the challenges of drawing political cartoons about the grotesque and evil human caricature that is Donald Trump.
In this week's episode, Chauncey DeVega wonders if this was the week that the American people will look back upon in the near future when American democracy and human decency and American Exceptionalism finally died with Trump's direct channeling of Nazi ideology, an obvious and unapologetic war on our brown brothers and sisters at the U.S.-Mexico border, Melania's enabling cruelty, the denial of how Stephen Miller and Michael Anton are white supremacists, and Trump's continued assault on the rule of law in America while most of the country's people do nothing because they are sheep.
At the end of this week's installment of The Chauncey DeVega Show, our intrepid host explains how Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels is being channeled by Donald Trump and his allies. Chauncey also shares some wisdom from those who fought back against Hitler's regime about how to organize and fight a day-to-day battle against evil.
