This is all getting a bit painful. I usually scroll by and put it out of my mind.

The Tweety one disturbs me so much. It's coming from the same people who regulalry post tweety memes which are usually apolitical but just as pathetic.

Then there's this.

Quote from: Steven Erikson, The Dust of Dreams
‘Stupid Bolkando. What value fielding an army that crawls like a bhederin with its legs cut off? We could dance round it and strike straight for the capital. I could drag that King off his throne and plant myself in it sloppy as a drunk, and that would be that.’

He snorted. ‘Generals and commanders understand nothing. They think a battle answers everything, like fists in an alley. Coltaine knew better—war is the means, not the end—the goal is not to wage slaughter—it is to achieve domination in the bargaining that follows.’

While looking into this, I did find something interesting:

Quote
Freleng's cartoon, Show Biz Bugs (1957), with Daffy Duck vying with Bugs Bunny for theatre audience appreciation, was arguably a template for the enormously successful format to The Bugs Bunny Show that premiered on television in the autumn of 1960. Further, Freleng directed the cartoons with the erudite and ever so polite Goofy Gophers encountering the relentless wheels of human industry, them being I Gopher You (1954) and Lumber Jerks (1955), and he also directed three cartoons (sponsored by the right-wing Alfred P. Sloan Foundation) extolling the virtues of free-market capitalism, said cartoons being By Word of Mouse (1954), Heir-Conditioned (1955), and Yankee Dood It (1956), all three of which involved Sylvester.

Or, more accurately:

"Lets go kill someone who's not a socialist, so our dumbass great grandkids can elect someone who isn't a socialist."

Hang on.  Is that pic suggesting that Hitler was a socialist?  waaaaaaat
If someone does the “Fine, you’re right, I’m clearly a terrible person, I’m Satan, I’m the worst person alive, I should just die” thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.

Oh yeah.  It's quite a common theme, especially among libertarians, who conflate nationalism, statism, the welfare state, socialism, laws against diddling children etc as all, somehow, being Nazism.  Which is a form of socialism.

Bernie Sanders also isn't a socialist, but shhhhh.

Ok, I can actually see this coming from Daffy. He's always been kind of a d-bag.

Still, this correlation between Warner Bros cartoon characters and dickbag political messages is oddly interesting.

The only connection I can see is that the ideas expressed in them are cartoonishly simple.

Might I suggest we start a facebook, ummm... thingie where cartoon characters present complex nuances of global socio-politics?

That would be awesome.  And possibly informative.
