Antisemitic propaganda in the United States that presents President Franklin D. Roosevelt's declaration of a state of unlimited national emergency as the product of an international Jewish conspiracy to save world Jewry and to bring destruction upon America. United States, ca. 1938–41.
Among the antisemitic declarations on the caricature are:
"Jews Are The Cause of High Taxes - Slavery - Starvation and Death ---"
"How long will the American people continue to tolerate this hysteric, desperate JEWISH PLOT, with their phoney EMERGENCIES?"
"BREAK THE JEW CONTROL BEFORE OUR COUNTRY IS TOTALLY DESTROYED."
