1960’s Propaganda: Unintentionally Ironic

AngryFinger found this gem of a comic from 1961 that decries the evils of communism under the auspices of religion. Unfortunately, our current political climate fits a lot of the characteristics this comic denounces, making a lot of the propaganda quite ironic. Here’s a few of my favorites, out of context, but not really:

The series was part of a Christian comic book: “Treasure Chest was a monthly comic book published by the Catholic Guild from 1946 to 1972. Each issue featured several different stories intended to inspire citizenship, morality, and patriotism. In the 1961, volume 17 number 2 issue, the story ‘This Godless Communism‘ began.”

It’s funny to consider that a lot of our own government’s actions are so eerily similar to the tactics, if not the ideology, of Russian communism and German naziism.

I've published HoT along with about 300+ friends since 2002. We're all Americans who are snarky and love our country. I'm a libertarian that registered Republican because I like to win elections. That's pretty much it.
