A great deal of this people’s movement was due to WikiLeaks’ publishing of hundreds of thousands of secret diplomatic and other government cables.

Laughzilla drew on events during this period, and connected the dots where others saw none.

Chinese Attack Gmail

China ignores American Banks – they’re not worth the effort, thanks to Obamanomics.

China attacks Gmail
The popular email service from Google known as Gmail claimed in June of 2011 it had been hacked by hackers in China. Officially the Chinese government denied any knowledge or links to the cyber attack, and accused Google of being propagandist agents in the hands of the American and Western governments.

This political cartoon satirizes the attack and the irony that the hackers neglected easier targets like U.S. banks, since they are not worth it, thanks to failed economic policies of President Obama.
