Skip to comments.Obama's On-the-Wall Endorsement ["Obey Obama"]

All political art is propaganda (that is the point), but most political posters are bland, forgettable, wallpaper.... [Shepard Fairey] wanted to make posters that the cool cats would want. The 2008 Democratic primary season equivalent of the Che poster (with all that implies). More Mao, more right now.... The kind of poster that might sell on eBay, as a signed Fairey Obama recently did, for $5,900....

Yeah, sure! So here's another Amerikkka-hating, fund-raising "friend of Obama."
Shepard Fairey is the artist who designed the official fund-raising set of Obama : Hope / Change / Progress posters, like this one:
Fairey has a company ("Obey") that produces his own artwork, such as these.
See Fairey's website: http://www.thegiant.org/wiki/index.php?title=Category:Prints
Obama has written Fairey that he admires "the political messages involved in your work."
If Obama does win in November, I wouldn't be surprised if this guy becomes his administration's "Artist Laureate." Can you imagine him as the Artistic Director for the Inauguration ceremonies?
The Art of Politics ["Obey Obama"]
Shepard Fairey: Obey Obama [Obama's official poster-maker loves Stalin, Mao, etc.]
Obama's Posters: Message in the Image
A Style of Obama Poster Not Likely To Be Widely Imitated
A striaght up marxist artist and a straight up marxist politician. It’s obvious why the obamanation loves it.
What’s his name again? shepherd who?
The same kind of terrorists who support Obama did this:
Never apologize for them.
Never appease them.
Suited to the pages of Pravda, this guy may be working in the White House. Never thought I’d see the day.
We often refer to him as "TTNO" (The Tragically Named One)
Fairey stole two concepts from the movie THEY LIVE. Both of them are subliminal messages, one is OBEY, the other is THIS IS YOUR GOD.
And that is the Obama campaign in a nutshell. They hired this red dupe to give them a campaign that could be wheatpasted in public places overnight (even in Obama’s personal letter to Shepherd, he mentioned the power of seeing one of Fairey’s stickers on a stop sign).
Barack Obama: A Champion for Arts and Culture
A Platform In Support of the Arts
Create an Artist Corps: Barack Obama supports the creation of an "Artist Corps" of young artists trained to work in low-income schools and their communities. Studies in Chicago have demonstrated that test scores improved faster for students enrolled in low-income schools that link arts across the curriculum than scores for students in schools lacking such programs.
I assume this government funded "Artist Corps" Obama is going to create will be the ones drawing the pictures of the Glorious People's Tractor plowing the land ....

Obey Plagiarist Shepard Fairey

This post (<-click), while addressing taxes, helps to explain why government "leaders" like Obama are actually in contempt of the Constitution that they have sworn to defend, foolishly following in the footsteps of FDR's dirty federal spending politics.
In fact, the article referenced below shows that Obama is the #1 federal spending proposer in the Senate for '08; Clinton is #2.this post (<-click) exposes how corrupt justices then began using FDR's politically correct license to ignore the 10th A. to unlawfully stifle traditional family values, including the USSC's scandalous legalization of abortion in Roe v. Wade. Note that the post first references two non-abortion cases in order to show Roe v. Wade in a different, troubling perspective.
In fact, consider that the states have the constitutional power (10th A.) to authorize public schools to lead non-mandatory (14th A.) classroom discussions on the pros and cons of evolution, creationism and ID, as examples, regardless that atheists, separatists, pagan-minded judges and the MSM are misleading the people to think that doing such things in public schools is unconstitutional.
The people need to reconnect with the Founder's division of federal and state government powers. The people then need to wise up to the major problems that, since the days of FDR's dirty politics, Congress has not only not been operating with the restraints of the federal Constitution, particularly where constitutionally unauthorized federal spending is concerned, but the USSC has wrongly been ignoring the 10th A. protected power of the states to address religious issues.
The bottom line is that the people need to get in the faces of judges, demanding that judges uphold their oaths to defend the 10th A. protected powers of the states to address religious issues - or get off the bench. The people also need to send big-shot, Constitution-ignoring federal spenders like Obama home as opposed to trying to send people like him to the Oval Office. The people need to get in the faces of members of Congress, demanding a stop to constitutionally unauthorized federal spending while appropriately lowering federal taxes - or get out of DC.
Lincoln put it this way.
"We the People are the rightful master of both congress and the courts - not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution." --Abraham Lincoln, Political debates between Lincoln and Douglas, 1858.
I stopped reading right there, more than I needed to know.
I should have done this earlier, but I must give a tip of the Hatlo hat to my brother, who first alerted me to this character, and did all the legwork in finding the guy’s history and artworks.
Poor pacman. So disgraced.
Thanks for the ping, post (and your brother). GRRRREAT (and humorous) thread. BTTT!
Ah - Thanks potlatch
A great graphic & post!
Thank you devolve. Lots of work making Michelle and her hand motions. She looks almost real to me.
Next version with “The Snarl”!
Well, if you saw that face blown up bigger it looked pretty bad, lol. Slack jawed and only one or two white teeth showing.
When I reduced size it isn't as obvious.
You should see me cutting out umpteen hands and arms so I can arrange them!
Nobody does it better then you potlatch -
I have no “manipulation tricks” to do that!
[I have no manipulation tricks to do that!]
And a good thing too!! Or you’d be beating me all to heck, lol.
I need a better ‘cutting out’ program and probably haven’t really discovered it in what I already have. Always the white outline and so hard when it’s a lot of frames.
I know many tricks but still get that ‘edging’.
Obama: A Progressive for Progress! Now with Liberal Substance!
Obamaganda: Change and Obey. Your Choice?
In the weeks before Super Tuesday 2008, "I put out the word I wanted to do something for Obama," explains Fairey, through Yosi Sergant, a plugged-in "early adopter" publicist in Los Angeles who knew prominent Democrats in the Obama circle. "I didn't want to be an unwelcome distraction," Fairey explains. "I've been arrested," he says, referring to his graffiti work in public places. "I really want him to win, so I didn't want to do anything that would cause him problems." The Obama people, somewhat to his surprise, said go ahead. Who said, exactly? "You can assume this came from the highest levels," Fairey says.
So both Fairey and the Obama camp are fully aware that he could become "an unwelcome distraction" -- that is, a scandal. Probably not at the Wright or Rezco level, but more on a par with Pfleger, IMHO.
