The wokies are going after Dilbert now.  :niterider:

 

 

A popular comic strip has been canned by 77 newspapers after its creator Scott Adams started incorporating anti-woke plotlines, including a black character who identifies as white.  

Adams' much-loved 'Dilbert' comics have been in circulation since 1989 and frequently pokes fun at office culture, but he announced he was sensationally dropped by publisher Lee Enterprises.  

The media company owns nearly 100 newspapers across the country - including The Buffalo News, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, and the Arizona Daily Sun - and has been publishing Adams' jokes about the corporate ladder for years.  

One of his most recent controversial comic strips included a black worker, who identifies as white, being asked to also identify as gay to boost his company's environmental, social, and governance ratings. 

Dave, his reoccurring character, replies: 'Depends how hard you want me to sell it,' before the boss responds: 'Just wear better shirts.' 

Adams, 65, is believed to be worth nearly $70million - a fortune he amassed thanks to the popularity of his characters, as well as his non-Dilbert related works.

Scott Adams, creator of the comic strip Dilbert, has called out the 77 newspapers after he was suddenly dropped.

One of the most recent comics touched upon anti-woke ESG enterprises in corporate workspaces. This comic was posted September 20, 2022

Another satire, posted on Monday, showed the same character in charge of the fictional firm wondering how he can open a new factory without contributing negatively to the environment.

As a solution to stop him being bashed by 'woke' commentators, the boss concludes that he'll add a non-binary worker to his board to increase diversity. 

Adams' satirical strips feature in newspapers across 57 countries, and in 19 languages - and there are over 20 million Dilbert books and calendars in print. 

The character Dave, named after the creator's brother, is a prankster who messes with his boss, Adams said.

 

He told Fox News that some newspapers voiced concerns after receiving complaints about his comic content.

But he could not say for sure if that had anything to do with the removal of 'Dilbert.'

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.' 

The Daily Cartoonist reported that the comic strips 'Baby Blues,' 'Red and Rover,' 'Mutts' and 'Bizarrro' were also cut. 

Cartoonist Dan Piraro, who created 'Bizarro,' spoke about getting the axe. 

'Lee Enterprises, a newspaper group that is majority-owned by a large investment firm, stopped running ‘Bizarro’ and many other comics in their papers this past week,' Piraro wrote on his webpage.

The removal of the strips has had a 'significant' financial impact on Adams, but it's unclear how much money he was making from the partnership to begin with.

Responding to claims that Lee Enterprises were just making changes to their syndication, the cartoonist added: 'Do you think they flipped coins to decide what to keep and what to delete? It wasn't about popularity or cost. (That I know.)'

ANTI-WOKE COMICS: 'The more woke you are, the more you will get paid,' published September 2, 2022

 

 

'But it could have been a normal business decision of another type that is a huge coincidence. All possible.'

In another of his anti-woke comics, one boss told workers: 'We are replacing traditional performance reviews with a wokeness score assigned by human resources.' 

They explain the idea that 'the more woke you are, the more you will get paid.'

But one confused worker buts in, saying: 'That feels too subjective.'

And the boss bites back: 'That'll cost you two points off your wokeness score, bigot.' 

Lee Enterprises - who own local media outlets from 26 different states - has been contacted for comment.

Dammit Dilbert, you spaz!!!

“There he goes. One of God's own prototypes.

A high-powered mutant of some kind, never even considered for mass production.

Too weird to live, and too rare to die.”

How is he cancelled if he can still create his comics and share them in other places? Dilbert is still available on amazon prime. How is he cancelled?

I'm not mad, I'm just annoyed with elites trying to control what people can or cannot read.    :niterider:

Let me spell out The Retarded Right Logic that is behind Woody starting this thread...

 

Because some idiot went so far as to call Dilbert a racist -- which we know NOT to be true -- therefore any time anyone calls someone else a racist, that must NOT be true as well.

 

How do you guys manage to breath and scratch your ass at the same time?

So you're annoyed because what? that you'll still be able to read Dilbert comics and watch the show on amazon prime?

You should be proud of the fact that free market capitalism is playing out real time. Newspapers recognize that having Dilbert comics is bad for business right now so they acted accordingly. Unless you're some sort of commie?

SO what are you annoyed about if nothing changes but the place you access his comics? Is that it? You're inconvenienced?

I already told you.  So either you can't read or you're trollin'.  :niterider:

Because he’s not available on 77 newspapers that he was available on a couple of days ago.  Those of us who don’t need to start crying like little bitches every time somebody says or does something that some other person somewhere in the universe may possibly be offended by I fed the fuck up with people who do.

show me where I can find a comic strip on Amazon prime that I can enjoy before I do the daily crossword puzzle while sitting at a diner having coffee?

actually, show me where there’s a goddamn comic strip on a fucking video service

But you'll still be able to find it elsewhere. If this comic is that important to you, I'm sure you'll figure it out.

This is capitalism pal. You expect a massive company to not listen to their audience? Hahaha

The comic itself means shit to me but the never-ending bullshit cancel culture attack on every single fucking thing is out of control and needs to stop

Dude. Has any cancelation personally affected your life in any meaningful way?

Yes.
