Kill Ugly Radio | Frank Zappa & Elsewhere
Frank Zappa news, weird links, lumpy gravy. Wanna bun?
“This Godless Communism”, an early 60s anti-commie comic, is pure comedy gold.
Jeeeezis, I did not know about a propaganda-material like this exist. Although the things shown are really familiar (from here, Hungary), but all this (of course) did not happen from one day to another. Strange to think back on this.
Hah! Seems ironic that Karl Marx has just won the vote for Greatest Philostopher by the listeners of BBC Radio 4!
(Quentin Robert DeNameland came nowhere.)
Do you know the joke about K. Marx visiting the GDR? As a result of long negociations he was finally allowed to say two words in public.
Karl said : ” I apologise”.
I remember reading this and similar paranoia inducing propaganda “commie-plot” comics in the 1950s in elementry school. I don’t think this stuff worked so well, because we were the generation that grew up to be pinko dope smoking hippies. It was just too over the top to be belieable, I suppose. Now that the former commies are our friends and business partners (except for Fidel Castro and that nut job in North Korea) and J. Edgar Hoover has been outed for the flaming queen that he was, nobody takes this kind of shit seriously anymore; but who knows, the way things are going, Bush may be declared “President-for-Life” and then all bets are off.
