Reaching back for historical slur



The Center for Justice and Democracy, a trial-lawyer-supported group that publishes the Tortdeform website PopTort website, has a new flyer out attacking the U.S. Chamber. You can see the flyer here.

The Chamber is depicted as an octopus strangling America's institutions and people with its tentacles.

Either the staff at CJD is woefully ignorant of the past or someone there has on purpose selected imagery with an ugly, ugly history. It's hard to believe someone would consciously choose to use symbolism that so obviously evokes anti-Semitic propaganda from the Nazi era.

So we'll say "ignorant."

CORRECTION: I originally had the wrong website published by CJR. Apologies to the Drum Major Institute for incorrectly citing its blog.
