Dr. Seuss made political cartoons back in the 40's, some of the most famous coming out during or before World War II. Have a look...

"Today is difficult, but cheering violence against speech, even of the most detestable, disgusting variety, is not a look that will age well." - Nick Spencer

"Look, if we're saying it's okay to commit acts of violence against people whose views we hate, we should put that paper." - Nick Spencer


Writer: J.M. DeMattis
Artist: Mike Zeck

So with Neo Nazi/White Nationalist/Alt-Right Darling/genocide advocating Richard Spencer getting punched, Nick Spencer came to his defense to say violence against him and his speech is a bad thing. It got a steamy between Nick and his Twitter followers, eventually getting to him about his views and writing on Captain America. During of which, he cites this issue as Captain America's views on his stance to fighting hate speech with violence.

A lot of websites done posts about this, but let's take a more in-depth look at the issue with its relation to Neo-Nazis, hate speech, and violence...

As you probably know 'Pepe the Frog' has been co-opted by Trump supporters and the alt-right movement. The original artist Matt Furie has illustrated this as a response.

I don't normally post political cartoons, but this one is, I hope you'll agree, especially relevant to this community for more than one reason. It's from the blog of Brian Fies, creator of the graphic novels Mom's Cancer and Whatever Happened to the World of Tomorrow?

"I’m a believer that all science fiction is really satire. Everyone who writes about the future is really commenting on the present. If I could reduce Prez to a single message, it would be that the single greatest problem confronting the human race is our utter waste of brainpower. We have seven billion of the most creative, complex problem-solving brains in the known Universe, and we put them to work making corndogs" - Mark Russell

"No, really the biggest influence any of the previous [aspects] of Prez has had on my work was Boss Smiley, because it just seemed so out of place. Here’s this character with a two-dimensional smiley face as his head. And to me, it just occurred to me–”They’re writing about Wal-Mart and they don’t even know it yet.” So I incorporated that. In my world, all the CEOs of all the major corporations have glowing logos where their faces should be. It’s a way of protecting their personal privacy. There’s a corporate personhood amendment where corporations have all the same rights as individuals. One of those is privacy. So the officers get a glowing logo instead of their head, so they can do whatever they want to you at work and then go home and live a private life, not really be accountable." - Mark Russell

"I think that the audience will largely be people like Beth Ross -- college smart asses or people that were college smart asses. I think the traditional superhero crowd will like it too. There is a lot of action in the story. And it's set in an age where the world is falling apart due to environmental change and degradation. In this future world, the United States steps into maybe 50 conflicts worldwide using drones and automated robots called Sentries, which allow us to be in places around the world without really sending troops or risking American lives. That's both more cost effective and less politically damaging. That becomes a big theme throughout the book. The world is falling apart and the United States is trying to aggressively hold everything together by using these automated forces." - Mark Russell

"A lot of editorial cartoonists I know are very ensconced in the world of daily papers and editorial cartoons and have no idea what’s going on in comics – no idea at all about some of the best graphic novels out there or who Jason Aaron is or anything. Then there’s political cartoons, which don’t seem to of interest to a lot of people who are really into comics and comics culture."

Prez #2

"I wanted to do a very different comic book than the original Prez. I think that the original Prez was more relevant for the early ’70s–it was about that they thought youth culture was about to take over the world now that 18 year olds could vote, and we’re in very different world now. We’re in a world where youth culture has largely failed, where the government and politics are largely controlled by elites and non-egalitarian forces. So I wanted to do a comic that was about this political reality, and to make that separation as cleanly as possible I wanted to come up with a completely different character in as many ways as possible from the original Prez Rickard. Although, I will say, Prez Rickard does show up as a character in the new Prez: he’s super old, in his 70s, and he’s a failed wunderkind from the past. He did not become president in my world, but he is there. I wanted it to be a very different comic about a very different time in American history."
