Obama Sign in West Plains
By KSPR News ^ | Story Created: Oct 10, 2008 | By KSPR News

Posted on 10/10/2008 8:34:17 PM PDT by F15Eagle

A sign of the political times in the Ozarks has many questioning the message ... And the source.

This billboard is on US 63 in the Howell County Community of West Plains. No one has claimed responsibility for putting up the sign, but Howell County democrats are upset at the image of Barack Obama in a turban.

Obama has fought internet rumors that he's Muslim. He grew up in a Christian family.

He grew up in a Christian family.

Oh, really? Funny, I thought mommy was an ardent athiest and daddy and step-daddy were mooselimbs. Am I wrong?

BTW, I didn't make the image that huge. That's the real size behind the story. Well, you'll get more detail.

After eight years of the most hateful caricatures of GWB, my reply to that is incredibly unprintable.

I’ve heard the same thing. Mommy was an atheist and daddies were Muslims. Never have heard what the white grandparents were since he doesn’t want to associate himself with them except to call his grandmother a ‘typical white woman’.

Who'd a thought Barry Soweto Muhammad Mubarack Hussein grew up in a Muslim Christian family?

I know for a fact he is Christian why else would he encourage the Communist/Islamists in Kenya to burn 850 Christian churches so they could build nice new ones? Isn’t Odinga his guy?

That sign reminds me of traveling down highway 99 through the San Joaquin Valley during the Clinton years. The farmers had put up all manner of anti-Clinton billboards, they slammed him good. I expect much more if bambi is erected....hell I expect civil war if bambi is erected.

Bambi may not be a muslim but he sure isn’t a Christian. He’s a commie, a religion of its own.

I think they got smacked down. In any case the sign doesn’t say he’s a muslim. We need that picture where he’s in the red and white dress-up.

Thank you. The pictures look pretty close to me. Of course he isn't smiling in one. I don't think they got a valid complaint because that is a REAL Obama picture on the left there and the one on the right matches the headdress pretty good.

“Howell County democrats are upset at the image of Barack Obama in a turban.”

Were they upset every time a political cartoon made a Republican appear to be Hitler or a member of the KKK? Obama is not untouchable. It is not slander (or libel, I always forget which) to make fun of public figures.

If you want to be president, get used to it.

You know, all they gotta do is replace the cartoon with the real picture. It would have just as much effect, and be just as accurate and there isn’t anything anybody could do about it, I don’t think.

Amy I wrong?

I think I read somewhere the grandparents attended a Universalist Unitarian congregation. I believe that organization pretty much accepts any belief.

It’s a pretty good match on the headress. Remember, the only time Muslims smile is when they are plotting something evil or reveling in their evil deeds.

"Never have heard what the white grandparents were since he doesn’t want to associate himself with them except to call his grandmother a ‘typical white woman’."

They were run-of-the-mill pagans, according to some researchers, who let him spend his teens under the influence of Frank Davis, and old black Communist and sexual pervert who Obama refers to as Frank the "poet" in his romanticized (and ghost written?) memoirs.

His grandfather arranged for him to be mentored by communist Franklin Marshall Davis.

The only thing wrong with the sign is that they put “Hussein” in quotes, which somehow implies that it isn’t his legal middle name. It is.

The libs’ obsession over keeping his middle name silent is hypocritical. They’d have sold out Hoover if he had been crippled by polio. Just imagine what fun they’d have if Bush’s middle name were “Adolf.”

all one has to do is google: "George Bush Billboard" and look at all of the wonderful billboards that the left has made about the President.

Between the Democrats being upset at the anger at McCain rallies and this billboard; these Democrats sure have thin skin and a problem with free speech.

“there isn’t anything anybody could do about it, I don’t think.

Amy I wrong?”

Yes, you are. Libs (and John McCain, but I guess he is a lib anyway) complain about calling him “Hussein” when it’s part of his legal name. They’d attack misuse of the real picture by saying, “it was taken out of context,” which would technically be true if he is, in fact, not an actual Muslim.

Personally, I don’t think he’s a Muslim. I think his God is the State. But you can use Muslim images, in a civilized way, as a metaphor for his foreign policy.
