Got Democracy? A new wave of appropriated images from Abu Ghraib is showing up around San Francisco, only this time the hooded man is featured against a tattered image of the American flag. "It's not pro-Democrat, it's not pro-Republican--it's supposed to make you think," says the poster's creator. "Do these people in Iraq have democracy? And do we have democracy? The Guantanamo Bay issue of suspending people's rights...smacks of McCarthyism, which is a kind of fascism. ...If (this) were any other country--and use the criteria that Bush uses toward other countries--we'd not be called a democracy now." And: God Less America!
