H. P. Lovecraft - As for Republicans shirt


In a 1936 Letter to C.L. Moore, one of America's first female Science Fiction writers, H.P. Lovecraft described his loathing for Republicans. While times have changed, it appears that criticisms of Republicans haven't changed much. No matter what your political leanings, Lovecraft's particularly enthusiastic insults read like one of his works of Cosmic Horror, making this a must-own for serious Lovecraft fans. This shirt is printed on a 100% cotton shirt. Accompanied by a youthful and pimpin' image of Howard Phillips Lovecraft, the text on this shirt reads: "As for the Republicans, how can one regard seriously a frightened, greedy, nostalgic huddle of tradesmen and lucky idlers who shut their eyes to history and science, steel their emotions against decent human sympathy, cling to sordid and provincial ideals exalting sheer acquisitiveness and condoning artificial hardship for the non-materially-shrewd, dwell smugly and sentimentally in a distorted dream-cosmos of outmoded phrases and principles... Intellectually, the Republican idea deserves the tolerance and respect one gives to the dead." Want to read the rest of the letter? Find it in S.T. Joshi's biography "H.P. Lovecraft: A Life."
