* ''FanFic/WhoLetTheDogsOut'' makes the author's loathing for ''Literature/TheCuriousIncidentOfTheDogInTheNightTime'' pretty clear.

Added DiffLines:

* Whenever WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic is complaining about a cliche in a film, it's based on the fact that the cliches are the one that Creator/DougWalker hate. The author tract is more common in his editorials where he's more discussion on subjects than reviewing films.

* Comically subverted by Creator/GrantMorrison when he literally shows up in ''Comicbook/AnimalMan'' to (among other things) mention that he feels his own writing for the book has become too preachy and contrived.

* Several of Music/JohnLennon's works from '72 and '73. "Woman Is the Nigger of the World" is a good example. There is even the Nutopian International Anthem- which is silent...

** ''Literature/OrsonScottCardsEmpire'', where the characters will [[AuthorFilibuster pause during the action]] to explain exactly why sweeping demonizations of the views of others are destructive. Part of it comes from the ridiculous premise-he was hired to write the backstory for [[ShadowComplex a video game]] about a second American Civil War taking place TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture, with the opposing sides being [[StrawmanPolitical strawman versions]] of the Democrats and Republicans.

--->'''Rashad:''' Did you know that evolution is basically a racist concept? Some evolutionists still teach that white people evolved from "negroes" who evolved from apes- '''meaning "[[GoalOrientedEvolution white people are more evolved]]!"'''

* ''Webcomic/ScenesFromAMultiverse'': Internet {{troll}}s, [[TheFundamentalist fundamentalists]] and Creator/DonaldTrump all end up on the receiving end of the author's pen, but itís usually done so cleverly you wonít mind. After all, SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped.

* ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}'' can barely go three strips without a gag that amounts to "Sam is a crook and an irresponsible spendthrift - just like the federal government!"
** That has simmered down a bit, but then there's the whole deal with [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Mr. Kornada]], the character being an extremely thorough attack on corporation executives, complete with making him perhaps one of the dumbest characters in all fiction. Not a single strip can go by with him being either [[TooDumbToLive a complete dumbass]] or [[EvilIsPetty an evil-minded jackass]], to the point getting to hear the "Corporate executives are terrible and stupid" spiel again and again hampers the actual humor.
* ''Webcomic/JackDavidHopkins'' spends most of its arcs reiterating how the author [[MadonnaWhoreComplex feels about women]].

* Creator/DCSimpson tended to veer into left-wing politics in regards to her OrphanedSeries ''WebComic/RaineDog'', with {{Anvilicious}} soapboxing about "Blue State" Democrats and transgenderism, coupled with the UnfortunateImplications of the various intended metaphors. Previously, ''I Drew This!'' was pretty openly a political comic, but even her ''least'' political comic, ''WebComic/OzyAndMillie'', still had political commentary, usually with geoglobal politics boiled down to playground puppets, and famously [[GenkiGirl Millie's]] [[UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush Mr. W sockpuppet]].
