    You should keep inflamatory politics out of questions about English - surely this is not the only example you could find of such a chart. The "humour" is not appreciated here. (I've submitted an edit with a more neutral example, without affecting the nature of your question)

  • @Grismar by the way, your picture is of a different chart (with a different name) so strictly speaking you charged the question Oct 27, 2022 at 2:22

These are called 'Snellen charts', or more generally an 'eye chart'.
