Brodner’s Cartoon du Jour: Hutarri Atari

Matt Savino appeared in the news this week. He’s the Michigan Militia member who ratted out a fellow far-right extremist to the FBI. He clearly felt this other group, the Hutaree, was especially dangerous. The distinction between people threatening violence and those closer to the edge gets lost at a distance. But not to them. It’s interesting to see where each person draws the line…What? There’s a line?


What's going to happen next as the headlines grow crazier and more disconcerting by the day. But we do know the job of an independent, unrelenting press is more important than ever—and the ongoing commitment of MoJo readers to fight for a democracy where facts matter and all can participate is absolutely vital.

If you feel the urgency deep in your bones like we do, please consider signing up as a monthly donor during our fall pledge drive to support Mother Jones' fair and fearless reporting for the long haul (or make a one-time gift if that works better for you). The headlines may fade, but the need to investigate the powerful never will.
