The Democrat Media Complex is circling the wagons before the midterm elections.
Crackdowns against anyone associated with Donald Trump are ramping up.
And one man who predicted Trump’s victory got hit with a shocking punishment.
Cartoonist Scott Adams, creator of the Dilbert comic strip, has become vilified by the left for making predictions about Donald Trump.
In 2016, Adams said Trump would win and explained that Trump had unique skills that made him a talented politician.
For that, Adams began catching heat from the left despite his personal liberal views.
Since then, Adams has occasionally called out the insanity of the left, particularly “wokeness,” and it appears that the so-called mainstream media is retaliating by canceling his long-running strip Dilbert.
The series was just canceled from 77 newspapers, coincidentally after Adams began making fun of “woke” corporations and ESG (environmental, social, and governance) policies.
From Fox News:
“The ‘Dilbert’ comic strip named after its title character struggling to make it up the corporate ladder and often pokes fun at office culture with satirical humor and social commentary has been canceled in nearly 80 markets…Scott Adams, who has written and illustrated the popular comic since 1989, said Lee Enterprises stopped printing it this week. The media company owns nearly 100 newspapers throughout the United States…In recent years, Adams has poked fun at themes related to the workplace, most recently Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) issues and the introduction of a new character named ‘Dave,’ who is Black but identifies as White. Dave, who is named after Adams’ brother, is a prankster who likes to mess with the boss, who is happy he has met his diversity quota, Adams said of the cartoon.”
If Adams were completely on board with the left-wing agenda, it seems unlikely that his series would have been abruptly canceled.
Adams said, “It was part of a larger overhaul, I believe, of comics, but why they decided what was in and what was out, that’s not known to anybody except them, I guess…All of the wokeness and anything that permeated from ESG… so that stuff made its way into the business world, and then it became proper content for Dilbert…The problem is that people see that even though it’s a workplace-related joke, but it’s more about how they implement it…What I do is I talk about how the employees handle the situation. It’s not about the goal of it. But that’s enough to make people think that I must be taking sides politically.”
Adams also admitted that the financial hit from this move was “substantial.”
This is what happens when people go against the leftist establishment.
Adams recently said that Trump is the only person that can defeat Joe Biden, who has resorted to fear-mongering.
Adams explained, “There’s only one way you’re gonna beat Biden at this point because he’s taken a pure—I hate to say it, but he’s taken a pure ‘Trumpian’ approach, which is take the best persuasion you can take and just ride it hard. That’s what Trump did. He just picked the scariest stuff and he rode it hard, and it worked. So Biden’s doing the same thing. And he’s got that extra benefit of the media will back him and say that MAGA people are extremists and stuff like that.”
Perhaps Adams annoyed the corporate press one too many times.
