Careless Matches Aid the Axis

Louis Hirshman



World War II poster


This poster is SO NOT PC in three ways. Firstly, its Old School Racism. That’s clear. Secondly, “fag bag?” You sure couldn’t say that one today! Thirdly, if they talk about matches, it means that you’re SMOKING. Shudder! You sure couldn’t make this one today… you’d be put in the pillory and all the “right people” (of both political sides of the aisle) would throw all kinds of verbal tomatoes at you.

You’d think listening to the shit spouted by the Terrible Trio (Limbaugh, Palin, and O’Reilley) that everyone on the Left is a PC-spouting merchant of drivel and nonsense. That’s NOT the case. LIBERALS are PC-spouting nincompoops… LEFTISTS know better. I’ll be blunt… the members of the CPUSA (I’ve met one or two) are more like Joe Sixpack than Joe Stalin. Ya wanna call me a “commie?” Go right ahead! Then, I’ll thank you for praising me and my attitudes… it means that I’m NOT a greedster and warmonger. “Liberals” are nothing but Crapitalists Lite… “Conservatives” (Hard Righties) at least don’t coat their evil with a layer of saccharine bullshit that leaves a nasty taste in the mouths of all who hear it. They’re both wrong, and both push an evil agenda. I’ll oppose both, but at least the Right isn’t sanctimonious and mealy-mouthed about it. They wear their greed on their sleeve for all to see (unlike Liberals, who’re just as affluent and arrogant, but are “oh-so-caring”… give me a break).

Don’t judge the past by today’s standards; just as you don’t expect miracles in contemporary life, remember that our parents were human… cut ’em some slack…
