It's 1929, where has the time gone?
Next year, will be a new decade with all new things
As we have seen in the last few months, there has been an increased rise of nativism among Americans. Americans have gained an increased amount of pride from being American-born. With this, many Americans have also become much more critical of foreigners emigrating to America and of anyone foreign born.
Because of the negativity towards the foreigners, new acts have been set into place to save us from these foreigners. The Emergency Quota Act (1921) has been passed which restricted the immigration of foreigners into the United States. The National Origins Act (1924) has been passed which penalizes Japanese and southern and eastern European would-be immigrants. These new laws are just like the laws that were to ban the use red flags by how they protected us from the evil of the foreigners.

The Ku Klux Klan was a secret society dedicated to the supremacy of white people. It began in the south and attempted to terrorize many southern blacks. The Klan can be divided into five different eras: The End of the War (& Pulaski Six), The Reconstruction, The Klan mobilization, The Reign of Terror, and The End of the First Era. Each one of these stages was brought out by economic and social changes. They were also at some point in time in an escalation in racial standings. The Ku Klux Klan is extremely scary and terrifying, I can’t quite understand how our own people, fellow Americans, could be so horrendous! Just the very name of the kkk can send shivers down anyone's spine, they will not stop until they get what they want. For example, whipping innocent southern blacks, burned crosses outside of black people's homes, they even went as far as torturing people and killing innocent children. The KKK did a great job of putting fear into slaves, they started off by seeming like ghosts to the slaves; not hurting them in any way. As the slaves started to ignore the kkk and become a little bit more comfortable with them, that’s when all the violence broke out, burning people alive, killing/torturing anyone who was different from them, the kkk wanted everyone to agree with their sick ways and forced it upon them. The KKK wore white robes and masks over their faces to hide their identity. They would shoot into people’s houses, burn their houses down and lynch families of blacks. Basically they hated the blacks and a little while after that they started to hate catholics and Jews too. They would shoot into people's houses, burn their houses down and lynch families of blacks. basically they hated the blacks and a little while after they started to hate catholics and Jews too. They thought what they were doing was right and thought it was what God wanted. The white americans thought they were superior over the blacks and wanted to prove that in very horrible ways. This was a horrible time period and I wouldn’t wish anyone to go through that.
Our Political Cartoon
This political cartoon uses Symbolism because the arm symbolises the KKK which is scaring all the people.
What issue is this political cartoon about? It is about the KKK overriding the public and destroying everything in it’s way.
What do you think is the cartoonist’s opinion on this issue? I feel the cartoonist thinks that the KKK was a very strong and powerful group that was extremely dangerous too.
What other opinion can you imagine another person having on this issue? Any other person would agree with this political cartoon and also agree that this was a major problem back in the 1920’s and we would never want to bring something like that back.
Do you find this cartoon persuasive? why or why not? I find it somewhat persuasive because it is showing the KKK as a huge arm that is destroying everything in its way and shows the terrified people running away.
- What other techniques could the cartoonist have used to make this cartoon more persuasive? The cartoonist could have added more arms (the kkk) to make it look more terrifying and also have more destruction in the background.
The Palmer Raids actually happened while the Red Scare was actually going on. What the Palmer Raids actually were is multiple raids by the United States Court of Justice used to capture and get all the leftists and anarchists. They happened at the very beginning of the 1920’s and ended shortly after that. Since the 1920’s, Congress has always supported the Palmer Raids, however, they changed their minds because of the national backlash it caused which created different unions and made a joke of the United States Supreme Justice Court. Constitutional conversations are always welcome, and the one we’re having now could clarify the meaning of the Fourth Amendment’s prohibitions on unreasonable searches and seizures.

The trial served its purpose of drawing intense national publicity, as national reporters flocked to Dayton to cover the big-name lawyers who had agreed to represent each side.
