Title:
Wanted for Impeachment: Earl Warren
Abstract:
This flyer played on the common conservative theme of opposing the decisions of US Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren, best-known--and frequently reviled by conservative activists--for guiding the court through a number of landmark civil rights cases, including Brown v. Board of Education. Its visual reference to a criminal "Wanted" poster (including two mug-shot like photographs) clearly portrayed Warren as an enemy of the people and the state. The poster’s text further supported this characterization, warning that "Warren is considered to be a dangerous and subversive character," that he "is a rabid agitator for compulsory racial mongrelization," and that "Earl Warren is a fanatic who will stop at nothing to achieve his goals." By passively failing to attribute any of these statements to specific accusers, the flyer's author rhetorically suggests the idea that its contents are unassailably and recognizably true.
