Some Dopers seem to claim that the partisan divide in U.S.A. is nothing new. Were inscriptionss like that really common back in, say, the 1960s or 1970s? Sure LBJ was bad-mouthed but that was for letting thousands of G.I.'s die, and it wasn't an entire party that was disparaged. In OP's example the entire Democratic Party ifs denigrated for ... for what exactly? Proposing a hike to the minimum wage?

It's hard to downplay such a trivial situation further, but I suppose you would see it that way.
If your job required you to drive a truck inscribed "Republicans are Nazis" would that also be a trivial situation?
