Garrison originally posted the cartoon about a year ago with this explanation:
My cartoon (click to enlarge) shows how the banking and corporate masters (crony capitalist fascists) control both major parties behind the scenes. They keep us distracted with left vs. right while giving us the illusion that voting for one of the other parties will solve things. It won't.The cartoonist recently returned to a discussion of this particular work after it was revealed to him that a neo-Nazi propagandist had appropriated it for his own ends. From Garrison:
There's an entity or unknown cretin out there changing my cartoons--adding in offensive Jewish stereotypes--and then spreading them throughout the internet. While leaving MY name on them. . . . Please help me report these creeps and if you see them on blogs, demand their removal.Via Reddit.
