"Politizoid" is some kind of anti-Democrat hit account on YT. The last videos on it were anti-Obama stupidity from 7 years ago--until the above was posted 2 days ago...

That's because the American Right doesn't get humor - notice how every time FOX News has a late night comedy show it flops. Looking at that cartoon, it's like that Vichy French animated short where famous US cartoon characters bomb France as a Vichy family illegally listens to shortwave radio from London:



That was from a film compilation documentary titled The Eye of Vichy (1993), put together by Claude Chabrol. I think the cartoon dates to 1943; the US 8th Air Force had started off hammering French ports with U-boat pens and bombing any heavy industry within the militarized zone outside of Vichy, then moved into Vichy because it wasn't a neutral French zone as it proclaimed.

Really the Roadrunner/Adam Schiff parody is like that awful album The Goldwaters Sing Folk Songs to Bug the Liberals from 1964:


That was their springboard of the old tune "Billy Boy?" withe the lyrics radically changed.

A written interview with a surviving Goldwater in 2006.
Still "Globally Banned" on Wikipedia for the high crime of journalism.

Cool. I met Barry Goldwater in my 20s, and had an autographed copy of Conscience of a Conservative. That was when "conservative" actually meant something, and Goldwater was, as described, a "terrible politician" because he said what he believed. This was before the Republican Party went entirely down the tubes. And, hey, Knott's Berry Farm, I went there many times as a kid, before there was an admission charge.
