Skip to comments.Our Dear Leader Kim Il Obama's Creepy Comics Message
Posted on 10/23/2009 7:45:40 AM PDT by Hillary'sMoralVoid
If you haven't seen the comics page today, please check it out. It seems that our Dear Leader is attempting to brainwash the children with a not so subliminal message of community service in today's comics. In fact, I counted over 15 comic strips extolling community service in today's paper. It seems that even with a record drop in his ratings, the Dear Leader still can march the media in lockstep with him.
Is this not creepy that he apparently would ask the media to do this? Is it not even creepier that they would comply?
Obama finally finds a suitable medium for his message—clown meets the comics.
It’s a classic combination: Tragedy and Comedy.
Yes, by all means, let's have some examples for those of us who don't get a newspaper delivered to our door.
Mmmm, mmmm, mmmm! Tell you what Barry. Stay away from our kids, OK?
This could become the Friday Silliness Thread.
I recall finding a similar case regarding (IIRC) homelessness: couple years back the weekday comics page had 3/4ths of the comics referring to homelessness one way or another, with absolutely no way it wasn’t coordinated en masse. The basic sentiment is fine, but the coordination is outrageous.
Lookout...I'm goin' all op/ed on their a$$!!!!
Sorry, don’t have time to search for individual links but yesterday’s Philadelphia Inquirer had several such comic strips; one is Baby Blues that’s been continued over several days, including today(daughter signs up family for 5 projects in one day cuz school “volunteer service coach” explained how important it was).
In today’s Inquirer the following comics have “volunteerism” as a theme: Blondie, Pickles, Family Cirus, Mutts (also yesterday),Hagar the Horrible, and Dennis the Menance.
This has probably been coordinated with all the TV shows that were to highlight volunteerism this week (see threads elsewhere on FR re that).
wow, is that not superlative media control?
Rahm Axelrod Dunn and company could put the DPRK, Chinese, Russian and former Albanian press machines to shame
yep, my wife pointed it out to me. Examples: Family Circus, Dilbert, Baby Blues, Blondie, Born loser, Garfield, Hagar the Horrible,Hi and Lois, Muts, Dennis the Menace, Marmaduke, Wizard of Id, Pickles, Rose is Rose, Cathy, LuAnn
Check them out here
Today’s Dilbert seemed to have a funny twist on the whole thing- they twisted it into ‘volunteering others’. I think Scott Adams was mocking what was going on...
Also check out yesterday’s Dilbert.. It may be my own Rorschach test, but that seemed to be a slap at Zero.
Or links! Truth is, I don’t follow but one or two comics and whatever I stumble across.
Sorry, don’t have time to search for individual links but I noticed this yesterday in several cartoons in the Philadelphia Inquirer, including Baby Blues where the 7 or 8 year old daughter signs up the family through her school for 5 service projects in one day because her school’s “volunteer service coach” explains how important they all are. I particularly picked up on the wording of “school VSC”, which is repeated again today.
In today’s Inquirer all these have the topic of volunteerism, some less obviously connected with Vain Hussein’s agenda than others: Blondie, Hagar the Horrible, Family Circus, Mutts, and Pickles. Baby Blues has been this entire week so I think they show the most obvious Zeroism.
Nope. Silliness has to make you smile. This just makes you sad and angry.
The link I posted can be scanned through for all the comics, about mid page.
I don't have a problem with folks putting out the good word on doing public service. It's a good thing.
Propaganda has rapidly diminishing returns.
These clowns are cartoon Stalinists.
Yesterday and today’s Dilbert really hit the point.. telling others they must volunteer for you so you can take on the air of a ‘humanitarian’ and ‘feel good’ while not actually doing anything.. a big slap at PTBs who are telling others to serve them (ie volunteer).
Sorry for the double-post. I didn’t see the first one go thru; assumed I’d “misspelled” your names. But it’s worth doing the research, especially on the expanded list someone else posted. It’s one of those situations that slips over folks’ heads unless they’ve been alerted to look for it.
I find it quite remarkable that these same guys who push their agenda through the comics are the same people who want “Net Neutrality”!
I noticed the same thing.
Check out the following in today’s paper.
Dilbert (pretty funny though)
I wonder what gun was pointed at their heads??
LOL!! Gotta love Mr. Adams....
Okay, I saw today’s Dilbert and another one about humanitarianism a few days ago. Adams at least knows how to disguise it or put a biting, office-humor twist to it.
I’m going to see if my dog will volunteer to piddle on todays rag.
I was thinking in terms of "let's make a mockery of this."
That’s alright! Thanks for the heads-up!
Cancel your papers!
Found about five in the Left Angeles Times...Dang even Dennis the Menace.
“Tell you what Barry. Stay away from our kids, OK?”
Ditto. Mine are grown, but the last thing I’d want is that Marxist Chicago thug trying to trash my granddaughter.
Hurray Scott Adams! He gets it.
Oh, I totally noticed that yesterday and I only read about 5 comics.
It was noticeable and annoying. This had to be a concerted effort to get this message out to the lowest common denomenator (me, in this case).
It was blatant and unamusing and just plain creepy.
Who is directing these efforts?
And what’s the penalty if you don’t play?
I love Scott Adams. And, in fact, he’s doing what the sublime leader does ... volunteering others.
From the first week in office when Zero had his ‘break out sessions’ on the economy and people came back with things like ‘change lightbulbs’, I knew this was going to be one long Dilbert cartoon.
We apologize, we had to remove that- there is a copyright issue w/ Dilbert. Nothing wrong with the cartoon, we just can’t pay them royalties for displaying it.
Can't you apply for some stimulus funds or something....??
About 15 years ago the comics spent a week pimping for tougher gun laws.
When the syndicate yells “frog” the illustrators hop!
***yep, my wife pointed it out to me. Examples: Family Circus, Dilbert, Baby Blues,.....***
I bet my favorite little boy CALVIN and HOBBES would not have volunteered for anything! One can see him shoveling snow and then making a snow man of a grinch with a whip beating little snow boys shoveling snow! I miss him!
I wonder if that’s in our local paper?? I’ll have to look. My hubby gets that. I get my news mostly from Fox, Drudge, and here on FR.
***I don’t have a problem with folks putting out the good word on doing public service. It’s a good thing. ***
It is forced volunteerism I hate. Even using the “guilt complex” to get you to volunteer is wrong.
Forced is wrong. Guilt, however, is an effective motivator. Can be abused, of course, but sometimes it's a valid approach.
