Happy Commies. Happy, Happy Commies!

I was doing a little research today, and I found this awesome pic and thought I’d share. Maybe you won’t think it’s so awesome, but for some reason it really tickles my funnybone.

The Joys of Propaganda! Almost eerily similar to some contemporary stuff.

Happy happy! Joy Joy! Chairman Mao is here to save us all with his visionary gestures! Pay no attention to the pogroms and purges behind the curtain!

This image (its entire genre among Communist art of the period) is a very common approach in propaganda from every side, be it left or right, and has descendants today among contemporary political art here in America.
