Wisconsin exhibition appears to be serving as a means for pushing leftist viewpoints

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported on an exhibition called "Wisconsin Funnies: 50 years of comics" held at the Wisconsin Museum of Art, and some of the contributions seem to be quite politicized for the sake of leftism:
Comics continue to be a tool for political activism and a means to question authority, a tradition represented by Susan Simensky Bietila, whose targets have included shackled births in hospitals, Wisconsin's deal with Foxconn and "Return of the Cossacks," in which Bietila links President Trump's coziness with Vladimir Putin to her family history of coming to America to escape persecution in eastern Europe.
Well this sure does smell fishy, and sounds like it only questions authority when it's represented by conservatives and capitalists. In addition, it sounds like the cartoonists involved are promoting cartoons based on the now discredited Russia collusion hoax, all concocted in a desperate attempt to smear Trump. What a shame this is what art exhibitions for comics and cartooning are coming down to.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
