Exhibition Annotation:
The proverb and photograph contained within this poster combine to form a statement many Americans felt that President Lyndon Baines Johnson proved all too true. Not only did the 1964 photograph result in scattered accusations of animal mistreatment, it served as the basis for a statement against the Viet Nam conflict. By the mid-1960s, increasing numbers of people disapproved of US involvement in Viet Nam while Johnson continued to increase military presence in Southeast Asia.
