I mean, if it glorifies violence, self centeredness, and distrust of every one who's not like you, it's bound to have a negative influence.

Huh...well I've got unusually intense mixed feelings here. On one hand, it's nice to see that the creator is disgusted by the idea of bloodthirsty cops emulating a fictional mass murderer; on the other, I can't stand the Punisher and can't not see him as a reflection of US culture's fetishism of gun violence, vigilantism, capital punishment, and the occasional glorification of military training. He's literally the perfect symbol for these people; calling him a criminal doesn't detract from that at all.

It's a bit the same for me expect there's two demons but the same text bubbles.

I slept and ate and slept some more. Didn't even go outside except to walk the dogs, and I waited until 3am to do that.

"We're getting so many calls, and they're saying that the Punisher logo [means] we're out to kill people, and that's not the meaning behind that," Police chief Cameron Logan told io9. "That didn't cross my mind."

It's a goddamn skull. It's a literal symbol of death and mortality, you dipshit; who the fuck would fall for this "whoops" act? That's without bringing up the lore of the comic book character it's taken from.

One of these is fine. The other is a crime. Guess which one could get ya arrested?

I'm not the biggest fan of Captain America, but I really feel for the people who are; he's not written consistently at all: he's got a long history and has established character traits, but that all goes out the window pretty quickly whenever someone wants to use him as a mouthpiece or strawman; he was a Nazi in all but name in that godawful Secret Empire arc. From a purely artistic standpoint, this is just bad.

i don’t usually care for graphic art, but this is a really phenomenal explainer of the recycling of military visuals/aesthetics within consumerist and increasingly militarizing white civilizan life. it, i think, does a really good job of linking the ordering logics of the state with the way that fascist aesthetics function, which in turn does a great job of both de-exceptionalizing nazi aesthetics and explaining how conditions in the US make it so rife for both state and non-state fascism (eg very recently with militia “patrolling” the southern border, capturing 200 migrants at gunpoint, and saying “we have to go back to hitler days”)
