Reposted in its entirety from Pride’s Purge because this is a piece of genius:

With thanks – and apologies – to Joe Wezorek:
Given this image’s inflammatory nature, I posted it with a great deal of trepidation. I had a hard time deciding if it was the right thing to do and I am still not sure. No, I didn’t have the consent of the families of those pictured, and I apologize for any additional pain that this image causes them.
‘War Minister’ is meant to be a satirical commentary, informed by the whole project of using the innocent victims of the coalition government’s war on welfare as political propaganda. I’m not making a penny off the image, and never will attempt to do so.
I’d also like to point out that ‘War Minister’ is an image. It is not a textual statement or rhetorical argument. An image is like an empty room and any message that anyone reads in that room necessarily comes in the baggage he or she carries with them when they walk through the door.
