Anti-American Art: Yankee Sonuvabitch
Two choice bits of Sandinista stencilry on a wall at the Mercado Oriental in Managua in 1986. At right, "YANKEE HIJO E PUTA SEGUIMOS DE FRENTE" (Yankee Son of a Whore We're Staying with the FSLN) with an outline of Augusto Cesar Sandino; at left "YANKE QUE SE RINDA TU MADRE PATRIA LIBRE O MORIR" (Yankee, Surrender Your Mother; Free Homeland or Death) with FSLN colors. Never have these two casual obscenities been used better.
