Reich Wing Billboard
Look what the lucky drivers in Mason City, Iowa were treated to this week.
This is what emerges from a mind prone to mixing Glenn Beck's radical political ideology, Rush Limbaugh's ignorance of history, and a whole lot of Fox-fueled fear and anger.
Some more sensible Tea Partiers have disavowed this billboard and it is no longer up in Iowa.
But, wow, that is one massive load of radical right wing projection.
"Radical" leaders lie and start wars of aggression, imprison without charges or counsel, and wiretap citizens without court orders. And how could anyone but the fearful and naive actually believe Obama is anything like a dictator?
I don't recall any billboards of Bush that remotely approached this kind of hysteria, despite Bush/Cheney's very real real common behavior with those tyrants.
The fear-mongering, hate-sowing Reich Wingers don't even realize that THEY are living proof of the lie they promote.
If Obama was anything resembling a Hitler or a Stalin, the idiots who put that billboard up would be dead.
(I invite you to read even more vivid commentary on this billboard over at OH!PINION. )
