Do Things Really Change?

I'm not opposed to the "race mixing" that has everyone stirred up in the first picture above, so I guess it's not surprising that I'm juxtaposing pictures of angry white protesters fifty years apart.

This is the way I break it down:
  • The ideas: pretty much the same--reactionary to the Nth degree
  • The logic: "Change is Communism," "Change is Socialism," "People who bring change are the Antichrist." 1959 = 2009
  • The anger: I think it was probably worse in the 1950s
  • The handwriting: better in the 1950s
  • The spelling: the unfortunate spelling of "Public Option" might be a Freudian slip, I don't know. It was probably better in the 1950s.
  • The use of the word, "NO:" better and more comprehensive in '09.
