Occupy Wall Street Cartoons, Post 2

Tracy Wuster

There has been significant interest in the subject of political cartoons on Occupy Wall Street. Here are a few new cartoons and links of collections of cartoons.  The crackdowns on the OWS protesters this week have created new images connected to the subject–such as the anonymous or otherwise militarized police and the question of Constitutional rights.

While the comparison of the OWS movement to the Tea Party is undoubtedly important, the above cartoon seems shallow and not terribly humorous.  The below piece, on the other hand, is more evocative–and not entirely clear on its political stance.
