Came across these Dr Seuss Political Cartoons
Found in a reddit comment was this treasure trove of political cartoons. Some of these are real gems and are even still relevant today:
And some of the others I've enjoyed thus far:

@wrong-wheel-drive My office is a 10 minute walk to the Dr. Seuss museum in Springfield and they have some of these up in there. How sad that many of the problems we have today were the same problems from 100 years ago. If anyone ever is in the area, the museum is a worth a stop along with the Armory and the Indian Motorcycle collections. Plus Rolls Royce had a factory in Springfield at one time.

These are from Dr Seuss Goes to War, which is worth a place in your library if it isn't currently on your shelf. As much as people know him as a children's author, he was witheringly brilliant satirist and (at the time) hard-left political propogandist and cartoonist. To paraphrase, he considered himself "subversive as hell," including in his children's literature. Sadly, his political commentary from the lead up to American's involvement in WWII is surprisingly relevant to our politics today.
