Theme for a Fable
June 20, 1924
An American eagle is surrounded by “Reaction,” Henry Ford,” “American lyncher,” and “Ku Klux Klan.” They have stolen its feathers and dressed themselves up in Indian headdresses marked, “democracy,” “humanity,” “freedom,” and “tolerance.” The caption reads, “The eagle isn’t looking too bird-like after their game of Indians.”
