Hollywood Vandals Brand Bush a Nazi
Human Events ^ | Feb 18, 2005

Posted on 02/18/2005 2:08:03 PM PST by West Coast Conservative



We previously reported the conservative group, Citizens United, planned to erect two pro-Bush billboards in Hollywood "thanking" Hollywood for Bush's reelection. As planned, the signs were created, coinciding with the buildup to Oscar night. However, one of those tongue-in-cheek billboards was seriously vandalized Wednesday night, when a Swastika was painted on President Bush's forehead.

Few Angeleans saw the disfigured sign though, since Citizens United anticipated the vandalism, and had previously arranged with the sign company that their billboards would be immediately repaired if, in fact, they were damaged.

True to their word, the overnight damage was repaired within hours.

Between throwing shoes, having a soldier hung in effigy and this, liberals are really showing their maturity lately.

This billboard isn't really mature in the first place.

Hypocrisy is fundamental to liberalism.

Far more mature and reasonable than what was and still is said about the President.

And I'm sure these activities will bring people to their side in droves.

I often wonder when most reasonable Democrats see the insanity and immaturity of whacko liberals, do they see their party or do they not notice......

Oh, yeah, like Michael Moore, Whoopi and the rest are real "mature". The billboards were a terrific idea. They make the point and rub the proper noses in it.

What do any those events have to do with the film making community?

Considering how that soldier being hung in effigy was treated, this is no surprise--people from both sides attack the other's free expression of opinion.

But it's funny how in the heart of the "creative community" they're no more imaginative than the "Bush is a Nazi" thing. I mean, AGAIN????

I agree. People don't have to stoop to their level to get a point across. Hollywood needs to be hit in the wallet, not by a childish billboard.

I think it is.

I think the noise from the Hollywood Left did help us to re-elect President Bush.

Pampleteering is a time-honored tradition dating back to our pre-revolution period between 1750-1775. The broadsheets tacked to walls and trees helped to energize our revolt.

Now, you may disagree with the message on the Hollywood billboards, and that's fair, but I agree with the idea.

In all the history channel documentaries I've ever seen I've never seen a swastika on the forehead of an actual nazi.
This swastika on the forehead was a Charles Manson thing. So they are saying Bush is a Charles Manson follower?

It's far more "mature" than the whiny leftist attacks on our nation and its president.

They notice. But they sit on the sidelines and condone these actions by their inaction and silence. In fact they applaude these events on the inside. Not unlike the so called "Moderate" Muslims, they are.

PJ found the DUmmies plotting this out a week and a half ago.

DUmmie FUnnies 02-08-05 ("Billboard Blitz to Rub Salt in Our Wounds")

They won't last a week................in Tinsel Town. Either that or they'll be "altered" to make bush look like the idiot he is. There are some fantastic billboard freelancers in Cali, I'm sure these won't go unscathed.

LOL All that effort for a lil ol swastika. I'm sure the Jewish community in LA loves seeing that symbol tossed around so casually.

However, one of those tongue-in-cheek billboards was seriously vandalized Wednesday night, when a Swastika was painted on President Bush's forehead.

Oh, yes... Kill a few thousand terrorists, you're a Nazi. Protect innocent people from being killed, and you're a Nazi.

Kill a few ten-million unborn Americans, and you're NOT a Nazi.

Well no more then we involve ourselves. I don't really have any interest in what their politics are as long as they do their job (make good movies). That's the extent of my relationship with them.

Respectfully disagree.

This billboard clearly shows that there are consequences to outrageous and infantile behavior.

One of them is a large billboard pointing out just how very stupid that you really are.

I assure you that the possibility of the people that did this even know who Manson is or what he did is pretty close to nil.

When President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, there were no 'Democrats' or 'Republicans' or 'Independents', we were all *Americans* and we collectively suffered a great loss.

Now who would like to make a wager that if (GOD FORBID) President George W. Bush was assassinated, that the freaks and fools over at (just to name one site) DU wouldn't have a mass orgasm?

This billboard vandalism is nothing compared to the deep and dark waters of pure hatred that have been stirred by the leftists/liberals and their ilk.

And as a long time lover of Hollywood cinema I wish people wouldn't group Moore in with them. He's a loudmouthed outsider who Hollywood has wanted nothing to do with since his speech at the Oscars two years ago. You never see any of them hanging around with him. When I think of Hollywood I think Grace Kelly not Michael Moore. :)

Here in St. Paul MN there was a billboard congratulating Norm Coleman's senate win. The DUmmies defaced the billboard calling Senator Coleman "the latest member of the Nazi Pary".......Norm Coleman is Jewish.
