TO ALL THOSE LAUGHING NOW.

PRAY YOU DON’T END UP HANGING LATER.

THE SLEEPER HAS AWOKEN.

A RECKONING IS COMING.

The Democratic Party’s donkey and the Republican Party’s elephant
have been on the political scene since the 19th century. The origins of
the Democratic donkey can be traced to the 1828 presidential campaign of
Andrew Jackson. During that race, opponents of Jackson called him a
jackass. However, rather than rejecting the label, Jackson, a hero of
the War of 1812 who later served in the U.S. House of Representatives
and U.S. Senate, was amused by it and included an image of the animal in
his campaign posters. Jackson went on to defeat incumbent John Quincy
Adams and serve as America’s first Democratic president. In the 1870s,
influential political cartoonist Thomas Nast helped popularize the
donkey as a symbol for the entire Democratic Party.

The Republican Party was formed in 1854 and six years later Abraham
Lincoln became its first member elected to the White House. An image of
an elephant was featured as a Republican symbol in at least one
political cartoon and a newspaper illustration during the Civil War
(when “seeing the elephant” was an expression used by soldiers to mean
experiencing combat), but the pachyderm didn’t start to take hold as a
GOP symbol until Thomas Nast, who’s considered the father of the modern
political cartoon, used it in an 1874 Harper’s Weekly cartoon. Titled
“The Third-Term Panic,” Nast’s drawing mocked the New York Herald, which
had been critical of President Ulysses Grant’s rumored bid for a third
term, and portrayed various interest groups as animals, including an
elephant labeled “the Republican vote,” which was shown standing at the
edge of a pit. Nast employed the elephant to represent Republicans in
additional cartoons during the 1870s, and by 1880 other cartoonists were
using the creature to symbolize the party.
