A Serious Question

What the hell is it with Democrats and totalitarian iconography?  They don't even seem to care whether they steal from communists, fascists, or movie posters for 1984.

The Hillary poster in particular seems to come from some weird alternate universe in which Eva Peron was an admiral of the Imperial Japanese navy.

Somehow it's been "cool" for a long time, as witness the long term popularity of T-shirts with Che on them, not to mention Mao and Fidel.

It's transgressive. Or something.

2 Many of them are actual totalitarians, so why WOULDN'T they use the iconography?

3 It's the imagery that surrounded them growing up, that fills their favorite political tomes, that filled the streets of their long-lost Workers Paradise(s).

4 Seems like a 'younger' Hilary which no one would dare criticise cause you would be a sexist hater.

It goes hand-in-hand with the Left's attempt at creating their own version of the New Soviet Man.  Well, 'New Democrat Person,' since 'Man' shows gender-bias.  He/She/It will have no eyes, just like Julia.

Of course, the Democrats have also learned the lessons of the totalitarians of the People's Republic of China, in that they are trying to shape and control the language people uses.  Control the language, control the thoughts, even if that ultimately requires reorganizing the alphabet to a bastardized version.

6 Let's just say that they are lame hipster douchebag wannabe totalitarians, or are otherwise too ignorant to know.

7 Ma Rodham is looking to the right, possibly to differentiate her brand from Soetoro's.and remain comfortably familiar at the same time.  Or she is keeping an eye on the VWRC.
