The Story Repeats Itself (A Hanukah Motif)
December 23, 1921
Referencing the desecration of the Temple in Jerusalem, a figure labeled “Reaction” together with labor leader Samuel Gompers (who supported the quota) force a pig marked “Anti-immigration edicts” toward the altar of American nationalism, where it is to be sacrificed in the name of hatred. The pillars in the Temple are marked, “Humanity,” “Justice,” “Freedom,” and “Hospitality.”
