U.S. Senate candidate says ‘People’s Execution’ campaign logo not to be taken literally

Citing the need for a revolution in American politics, a U.S. Senate candidate in Massachusetts has created a campaign T-shirt logo featuring an execution by the Chinese Red Guard.

The logo, unveiled this week by Democrat Joseph Mankid, recalls the “people’s executions” carried out by the student-led paramilitary social movement known as the Red Guards during China’s Cultural Revolution.

“It’s an image which calls to mind what people have done for revolution before, symbolizing revolt by low- and middle-income people,” Mankid said. “I don’t literally want mass graves in Massachusetts, but I’m frustrated by big money in politics and some people probably need to die to open the doors to getting other people at the table.”

Mankid says he’s an attorney with “policy experience” and an “axe to grind” with the system that is destroying our democracy.

“We need a revolution,” Mankid said. “But if we can find a better path than sending 16 million children to education camps, or having college students murder 8 million bourgeois adults, then we owe it to ourselves and our country to do that. If not…”

Mankid’s voice trailed off into the distance, but he jerked himself back to reality.

“We can all scream at each other on the Internet about whose team did which ridiculous thing this week,” he said. “But I have a plan to literally force legislators to create solutions and pass laws that make our lives easier.”
