Bugs Bunny Vs USA

In one of the most politically subversive animated clips ever made in the USA, Bugs Bunny is angry that rabbits are only worth 2 cents by the US Gaming Commission and declares war against the United States. Bugs commits several acts of terrorism against the US including cutting off the state of Florida from the mainland, sabotaging the Panama Canal and the freight rail lines. In his most impressive and revolutionary act of all, Bugs gives Manhattan back to the American Indians. This clip from 1949 would today be considered an illegal act promoting terrorism. However, the end of the clip warns about the use of the military to attack US citizens that protest and challenge injustice just as in the recently passed National Defence Authorization Act of 2012.
