Enjoy what could be Least Subtle Cartoon Made in 1919


No time for subtlety when you are dealing with those Bolshevist rats! At least that is what this cartoon from 1919 would have you think. It is more like a one panel political cartoon come to life and at just under 40 seconds it is perfectly bite-size. It makes me wonder where they would have shown this? Right before a movie like we see commercials and trailers?

  1. The problem with this is that the farmer seems to just gently tap the Bolshie rat a couple of times and it keels over dead. Should the rat put up more of a fight to show what a really tenacious threat Bolshevism is to civilization?
