Brodner’s Cartoon du Jour: June 14


A friend in Iran has directed me to websites where I found these shots. It is a sudden and stirring example of bravery and devotion that has brought hundreds of thousands to the streets of Tehran and elsewhere. Many are holding signs condemning the regime as a dictatorship. And many are paying a high price. This is beginning to take on the feel of the revolution of ’79, with Ahmadinejad and his sponsor Khomeini in the role of shah. Wishing for a miracle for Iran…and the rest of us.

Fact:

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.
