Source A is Black propaganda, saying that the Jews and the Social Democrats would both bring communism, this is what the Germans feared the most. The short, fat looking man, a stereotypical Jew, is holding a huge bag of money, is well dressed, and is obviously well fed because of his size this is to give the impression that Jews are money grabbing and selfish. Most of the Germans disliked the Jews anyway but this poster would hopefully, for the Nazi party warn even more people off, as according to the Nazis, would keep all the money for them selves. That is why the Jew is drawn as fat and wealthy.
