COMICS FROM THE PROPAGANDA MILL
The other day I happened across a website called Comics With Problems that is a amazingly rich collection of various kinds of propaganda that has been disseminated down the years using a comic book format. Although the material ranged from “tea party” racism to child abuse, I focused in on disinformation from the War On Drugs since that seems to be an ongoing preoccupation round here. Although this stuff reads like something out of the Bizarro world, let’s not forget that the “facts” trumpeted therein have been the pretexts for throwing countless millions of otherwise harmless folk into very real-world prisons.
