Newt Gingrich and Dinesh D’Souza find nothing more fearful than the possibility that President Obama might be anti-colonialist.
Jed Lewison’s alert collation of all the photographs of ordinary Americans appearing in the GOP “Pledge to America” pamphlet (.pdf) suggests what the opposite of an anti-colonial America might look like. A copy of his collage, and a slight correction, appear below the fold.
Two slight amendments. First, one of the GI’s in camouflage appearing above might, just possibly, be Latino. Second, the pamphlet contains (but Lewison omits) several photos portraying politicians: Republican congressional leaders, the heads on Mount Rushmore, the Statue of Liberty. They’re all white too.
Update: the first comment below is right: there’s also an African-American woman in the second photo from the bottom. And the guy at the lectern in the photo above that might also be such. So make it three nonwhites out of 213 plus however many (perhaps 100) are in the huge group photo second from the top (not counting the Congressional leaders, dead Presidents, and Lady Liberty). A diverse crowd.
