Anti-Obama Protest Sign Shark Jumped

Anti-Obama Protest Sign Shark Jumped

This could not wait for a bumper sticker post, and anyway, no bumper stickers were involved, Anti-Obama sign in Uptown neighborhood draws controversy (h/t reader Leland):

NEW ORLEANS — There are several political signs attracting all kinds of attention in one Uptown neighborhood.

On Wednesday, crowds gathered at the corner of Calhoun and Coralie streets, looking at several signs depicting President Barack Obama as either a dunce, a puppet or a crying baby in a diaper.


 

Update: Michelle Malkin reminds us that these signs are mild compared to anti-Bush signs; see some examples in my prior post, Because Only The Far Right Incites Violence.

I defy anyone thinking I want to give obama any kind of a break but this is way over the top. It is in the poorest of tasste. There are other ways to send a message you don’t like the guy. And in NO, be careful obama supporters don’t burn your house down.

tasste=taste

Certainly they would never hang Sarah Palin in effigy, right?

I am intrigued that the City Councilman (woman) wants to find a zoning or other law to give her legal authority to take down the signs. She doesn’t dispute that this is his opinion, or that the signs are on his property, or even that it is his first amendment right to express his views. She just wants to find a law to her allow to squash his opinion, to allow her to force the person to take the signs down.

And, as Michelle Malkin notes on her blog, there was no such hue and cry when it was Bush (or Palin, for that matter), which makes it even more ironic that the one woman said, “He wouldn’t have done that to Bush!” Well, maybe he wouldn’t have, but a whole lot of people did. Signs were done by anti-war protesters, anarchists, anti-bigOil eco-hysterics, and so many more. BusHitler, Chimpy, Emperor, Evil, Devil, Tyrant. Yeah, I remember.

Remember Katrina, folks? The meme went something like this: Bush was the anti-Christ, the racist who brought that hurricane just so he could force black people to stay in their homes and DIE!!!! Yeah, I remember that, too.

In ObamaLand, “freedom of speech” is translated as: some speech is more equal than others.

    Yup, that’s why the Obama administration pressured Ford to take down the bailout ad – it obviously wasn’t “equal” enough.

Poor taste? Check. Want one for my front yard? Check

I love it. President Petulant in all his glory. Only thing that’s missing would be a rattle in the shape of a scepter.

The sign is very respectful of President Obama. It is clearly meant to “get in their faces” and “punch back twice as hard”. What can be more respectful than to take his advice to heart like that?

At least they’re not “bringing a gun” to “punish their enemies”, a couple of other Obama remarks.

Nagin couldn’t even organize a school bus fleet to evacuate citizens of New Orleans, leaving the buses to flood while citizens were stuck with no drinking water and overflowing toilets in the Super Dome. So, what does the Democrat SocialistMedia Complex do? Blame Bush.

Nagin has no standing or moral authority in this matter or any other.

Just like putting the squeeze on Ford Motor to remove its bail out ad, this poor fellow will be forced to take down the sign or go to jail by a corrupt bureauracy.

It does not justify the poor taste of the sign, but my goodness anyone who drove around Ithaca in the Bush years knows that town was littered with anti- Bush trash. Apparantly those who think Obama is being treated unfairly have never been to an ivy league “enlightened” town during a republican presidency.

The left only believes in free speech when it applies to them and everyone in marching in lockstep.

I suspect that a lot of Obama supporters believe that this is special treatment for Obama because prior to Obama being elected, they simply weren’t paying any attention to political anything. Remember this?
