Books cannot be killed by fire. People die, but books never die. No man and no force can put thought in a concentration camp forever. No man and no force can take from the world the books that embody man’s eternal fight against tyranny. In this war, we know, books are weapons.
Franklin D. Roosevelt

Don’t be stupid, be a smarty, help destroy the Nazi party!

Despite anyone’s misgivings about Democrats or the left in general, one thing we SHOULD all be able to agree on is this: white supremacy is a fucking joke.

I wanted to paint something like the old WWII propaganda posters, which have a certain charm. The flag is rent in twain by two pit bull terrier dogs, because they’re scrappy go getters that never tap out. A true American breed through and through.

Free Speech Doesn’t Mean Careless Talk!

   ‘Though this poster deals with spy paranoia of the WWII era, it does apply to the world as we know it now. Free Speech is a must as guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. Somehow however, the term ‘Political Correctness’ is confused with common politeness. The actions are not interchangeable.’

Some interesting things on Mr. Incredible’s wall…

-Doing Our Part poster - suggests that supers were “doing their part” during World War 2. It certainly reads and looks like a WWII propaganda poster… I wonder if heroes were sent to the front lines?

-Middle-bottom left appears to have some kind of war medals displayed in a case, which would support the above theory. Also, the Pez Dispenser I mentioned earlier is there!

-In the top left, a jet with the Mr. Incredible logo… Was there an Incrediplane?!

-Just beside his right shoulder, a vinyl record that says “Mr. Incredible Sings.” HE HAD AN ALBUM, GUYS. 

-He was on Time Magazine!

-The Elastigirl logo is on the far right a few spots down. He saved some room for his wife. Not much, but still. Awww.
