(Republicaninformer.com)- When cartoonist Scott Adams was dismissed by media outlets for what some have labeled a racist diatribe, the Dilbert comic strip moved to Rumble, an internet video site that promotes itself as resistant to cancel culture.
According to reports, in late February, Scott Adams, creator of the comic strip “Dilbert,” posted a video to his YouTube account where he called black people a hate group and warned them to stay far away from them. He has now defended his use of exaggerated speech.
Newspapers throughout the United States, such as the Washington Post, stopped running the comic strip in the wake of the video’s release.
Adams has been a contributor to Rumble’s platform since 2020, but on March 14, they announced that he would be moving Dilbert Reborn to their paid membership service, Locals. More than two hundred mini-lessons and a comic series called Robots Read News would make up the bulk of the material.
Adams has been known to express views that are all across the political spectrum.
In the episode of “Real Coffee with Scott Adams,” posted to YouTube on February 22nd, Adams made reference to a Rasmussen Reports study that questioned whether respondents agreed with the statement, “It’s OK to be white.”
Adams pointed out that 26% of blacks responded “no,” while others were on the fence.
The polling organization explained that it had surveyed the term because of its frequent appearances in the media, despite the Anti-Defamation League having condemned it as a hate slogan.
Reports show Adams sarcastically explained that he had been identifying as a black man for a long time because he wanted to be on a winning streak and also wanted to contribute. But, he has learned that roughly half of his team will not accept his whiteness.
Adams said the survey made him adjust his routine. He had decided to start calling himself white again since he had no interest in continuing with any racist group.
He later said that his allegedly racist outburst was obviously exaggerated, at least to those who knew his style.
