‘The Dick Joke Is Not Always Your Friend’

The recently deceased Harold Ramis’ beloved anti-authoritarian comedies of the late ’70s and the ’80s (including “Animal House” starring John Belushi, pictured) were pop trojan horses of then-emerging right-wing cultural values, former Harper’s Magazine columnist Thomas Frank writes at Salon.

Right-Wing Extremism—It’s Not Just for the U.S.
