During the 1964 Presidential election, Arizona Senator Barry Goldwater ran under the Republican banner to unseat President Lyndon B. Johnson. Goldwater was infamous for his war hawk stance and regularly called for a more aggressive U.S. foreign policy. A popular talking point in the election for his opponents was to use this to paint him as a war monger in the pockets of the military-industrial complex. “Bury Barry” channels similar rhetoric to succinctly persuade people to vote against Goldwater.
