Going to the heart of the difference between thuggery and government.

That rocks.

Don’t seem to remember that one from Saturday mornings.

Nope, probably not. It is now part of my “propaganda” collection that I will use to educate my children.

Why, I’m fighting a war on ducks. Any ducks come around here, I’m gonna blast them!

Agreed, schoolhouse rock rocked. I still know the preamble because of that.

Well that one wasn’t. That’s just commie propaganda. Kids like batter animation now a days.

Schoolhouse Rock is probably the only reason a lot of people know what an adverb or a conjunction is, how a bill becomes law, and indeed, the words to the Preamble of the Constitution. Its demise ushered in a new era of American dumbing-down-ness.

But I don’t think this little cartoon can be considered “commie propaganda;” nothing in there that was promoting Communist ideology, rather it was criticizing the monopoly and abuse of state power.

If anything, it’s anarchist propaganda.

Exactly right, I need to be more exact in my terms. To me it all falls under commie propaganda, which also sounds funnier than anarchistic propaganda.
