Four More Years? [Infamous 1972 Anti Vietnam War Nixon Reelection My Lai Poster].

New York: Colorcraft, Inc., 1972. First Printing. "This propaganda poster was issued by artists and writers united in protest against U.S. government policies under President Richard M. Nixon, who was elected in 1968. In 1972, Nixon ran for re-election, defeating the Democrat George McGovern. The Nixon campaign slogan was "Four More Years." This poster subverts the slogan, asking instead whether Americans really wanted four more years of Nixon presidency. Printed over Ron L. Haeberle's well-known and disturbing image of the My Lai massacre in Vietnam, the message creates a stark association between controversial American foreign policy and savage brutality. The image supplies its own answer to the leading question, implying that four more years under Nixon's administration could lead to further violence and subjugation. Later in 1972, Nixon's Watergate scandal emerged, eventually forcing the President to resign." (V&A description) A very handsome copy of a remarkably strong piece of political commentary/protest. Near Fine. Minimal wear, else bright and clean. 25x39". Photographic image. Item #9271
