“The Two Platforms”

A racist political campaign poster from the 1866 Pennsylvania gubernatorial election. The poster specifically characterizes Democratic candidate Hiester Clymer’s white supremacist platform as “for the White Man,” represented here by the idealized head of a young man. In contrast a stereotyped black head represents Clymer’s opponent John W. Geary’s platform, “for the Negro.”

    The Matrix: Rebooted

    The 19th century was like bizarro politics: when the Democrats were white supremacists and the Republicans were in favor of stronger federal government.

    I’m sure they’d say the same about circa 2000 politics.

    “A Small-Fed Texas Conservative Rebublican Governor was elected President?!”
