Brodner’s Cartoon du Jour: Daniel Pipes

Self-appointed Arab witch-hunter Daniel Pipes organized the right-wing attack machine against Debbie Almontaser, principal of the Kalill Gibran International Academy in New York, which has 60% Arab students. She was ultimately fired by the city based on zero evidence. In a very patriotic test of democracy vs. fascism, democracy has lost. Joseph McCarthy and his blacklisters have won…and have a new set of Pipes. Here’s the piece in the Times last Sunday.


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
