Cue the Archival Klan Photo


[Amen. - Dave]

Everybody Has One

It's impossible to ignore the partisan statement being made by Dave with this post during the 2016 Republican Convention. I'm following both political party conventions, in part, because I am concerned about the possibilities of government intrusion on the personal liberties of American citizens. Those liberties, of course, include free speech.

So, I unequivocally support this post from Shorpy, while I am reminded of unfair (perhaps uninformed or rhetorical) comparisons I have seen throughout this election cycle in the media and elsewhere.

Let's all do our part to thoroughly vet our candidates by researching their qualifications, history, and proposals ourselves, because that is our obligation to each other.

May the best candidate win.

Make America Great Again?

Sad to say, things have changed very little in 52 years.


The placard stole that from DC Comics ™


Although this time, we have a Republican candidate that even the Republicans (some of them, anyway) don't like.

You can't make this stuff up, folks.

The timing of this photo is peculiar

Surely no co-incidence that Shorpy also put a photo of the Klan marching on the day Trump won the nomination.

Tasteless race baiting & politicking on the part of Shorpy. And I'm not even a fan of Mr Trump.

Oh, the irony

Considering that Barry Goldwater was of Jewish descent. Take that, Wizards!
