World War II Posters

Americans have been honoring our heroes for some time now. Only recently have we needed to raise our voices to do it, to be heard over the chorus of moonbats denouncing them as rapists, torturers, and fiends. Check out these WWII era posters:








Americans are out there now in Iraq and Afghanistan, taking the same risks for the same purpose as troops in WWII. Too bad we don't see posters like these instead of endless images of Chairman Zero.

Compliments of Bergbikr.

I got annoyed today with the fact that the liberal administration say's we should celebrate this holiday, when they totally miss the point that this holiday is about reflection and gratitude.

Semper Fi,

Heres something from diversity lane

God bless America, our Armed forces, and my battle buddies.

Today we honor everyone that served, and particularly those who gave all for this great nation of ours. Although our country is far from perfect, and is a work in progress, the United States of America is still the high point of freedom, liberty, civilization, and opportunity in the history of the world.

Today is a good day for everyone to remember the United States Army Motto, "This We'll Defend".

We all need to remember that - now as much as ever, and not just for today.

The only poster I find ironic (the rest are terrific) is the Norman Rockwell - for years he was snickered at by the experts until his "progressive" politics were widely revealed: Now, Norman Rockwell has been admitted into the art Pantheon of the 20th century in the United States and the western art world, mostly because of this politics. His is now seen as a serious and significant artist. The connection between his work and that Socialist Realism from the former Soviet Union and in the rest of the world has been gleefully established.

AMERICANS will always fight for liberty!

The greatest generation ... I've often asked my grandparents to relate their war stories (both volunteered, Nanna was a WREN, Grandad a Marine, although they didn't see active combat in WWII), and contrasted their attitudes with those of my own generation. The differences are stunning.

puffdaddy - which is the one by Norman Rockwell?

Posted by: mandible claw at May 25, 2009 9:12 PM

Mandible - puffdaddy didn't come back, so I'll answer - it's the "Freedom From Fear" poster.

It was part of Rockwell's iconic "Four Freedoms" series - Freedom From Want, Freedom From Fear, Freedom of Worship, and Freedom of Speech. The idea for this was based on the famous "Four Freedoms" speech by FDR.
