Simpsons葉he "Commie-Nazi" flag?

Just a quick Simpsons question...

A few years back, the show had a clip of a "McBain" movie where the hero was being attacked by jet fighters flown by the dreaded "Commie-Nazis." We got to see the side of one of these guys' jets, showing a flag that integrated (as I remember) a hammer & sickle and a swastika.

I was just wondering if anyone could refresh my memory about what that flag looked like.

Well, thanks for your time,

Hey it may have been a joke for the Simpsons, but "commie Nazis" actually exist - the National Bolsheviks, started by the former emigre writer Eduard Limonov, who's actually a pretty good writer when not running schizophrenic Nazi-punk parties.
here's their flag, a much cleaner design than MacBain's people came up with.
Wikipedia article.

Excellent容r, not excellent that commie-nazis exist, but that's greatly helpful information on both fronts.

Much obliged, and thanks for your help!

I recall seeing a similar flag on some other cartoon...I want to say Family Guy but it's probably wrong. It was funnier than these examples, though, since it had the sickle and hammer outrageously twisted to form the swastika.

McBain fought the Commie-Nazis while attempting to deliver penny donations to UNICEF. As far as I know, the two adventures are unrelated. I'm not really a big McBain fan. I'll have to check it out the next time I'm in Springfield.

From the article:

Quote:
National Bolshevism is an ideology that attempts to combine elements of fascism and stalinism. Influenced heavily by the idea of geopolitics, National Bolshevism seeks a merger between Russia and the rest of Europe in a union to be known as Eurasia.
Cool! Can we be Oceania?

Mendoza is the villain who ordered the hit on McBain, not his partner who is on the recieving end of it. McBain's buddy is named Skoey, who is also his music guy on his talk show. (at least I think the guy who got shot was named Skoey, I know that's who the music guy is)

You know who Skoey is? You must be some sort of homozexual!
