1984 circa 2012

[ 47 ] September 16, 2012 |

Is Michael Bloomberg starring in a new version of 1984 on Broadway? If so, this would be a good poster for the play.

What, you mean this is a serious poster meant to intimidate the people of New York. Oh dear.

    Always vigilant, rarely correct in spelling.

    It truly is amazing how often US authoritarians turn to the James Bond Well, and how deeply they draw from it. Bunch of goddamn adolescents playing at cowboys and Indians.

  3. Pinko Punko says:

    No, wath-ching is a thing. Also, the drone just takes it over the top.

  4. Kyle says:

    It’s missing an image of Lt. Tony Baloney pepper-spraying caged peaceful protestors for sport.

    (Hastily puts down 20 oz. soda)

    BLOOMBERG SHOULD RESIGN! LOOK AT THIS PHOTO HEH!

    “THE KEY BIT”! “THE KEY BIT” IS I REPEAT “THE KEY BIT” IS THAT THE POSTER IS LITERALLY BLUE AND BLUE STATES ARE LIBERAL, A FORM OF FASCISM. RED, ON THE OTHER HAND, MEANS…ERRR, NEVERMIND.

    ALSO, BLUE BALLS.

    OMG this poster totally makes me feel safe

    Of the citizens striding purposely, ever forward, I’m the guy with the hat.

    I’m gonna say this is fake. The misspelling, the drone (which I don’t think the NYPD has), the fact that it’s a pic from someone twitter’s feed. This can’t be for real.

    It looks like that Marxist style cover of Romney and Ryan that the National Review printed.

    -Same artist?

    We were never at war with CT.
    We’ve always been at war with NJ.

    Somewhere, AmeriKKKa’s Mayor is looking on with pure rage and jealousy in his eyes.

  12. Calming Influence says:

    I don’t think it’s a misspelling; it’s Bloomberg trying to sound tough with a lisp.

  13. Tosh says:

    Definitely political satire. Aimed directly at NYC’s Stasi.
    Maybe a graphically adept but typo challenged “Freeway Blogger”.
    Not altogether shabby.

  14. Some Guy says:

    Is there a -large- concern that the NYPD will start slinging 500 pound bombs around NYC? Just drop ‘em willy nilly? Maybe on those folex street vendors?

  15. joejoejoe says:

    Michael Bloomberg is Raymond Burr! Reminds me a little of the opening to Ironsides.

  16. ajay says:

    NYPD poster: probably a hoax.

    London “Secure Beneath the Watchful Eyes” poster: definitely not a hoax.

    I’d heard that that poster (which I saw) was a parody. This picture, however, is not – it’s from the Occupy 1st anniversary protests this weekend – and you should consider featuring it in a post.
