How Tintin became an unlikely poster boy for the far right - article from The Wired

#1 · Posted: 17 Aug 2020 20:43
Here is an interesting article from The Wired magazine about how far right groups sometimes use Tintin to highlight their hostility towards immigration, Muslims etc.

It also raises some of Herge's own politics, including his own right-wing views in his youth and his controversial behaviour during World War Two, though leading Tintin expert Benoît Peeters is quoted as saying that he would not have approved of the abusive way the far right uses Tintin today.
