Outrage at anti-Obama billboards calling him village idiot and with child giving him the finger
31 August 2012 | EMMA REYNOLDS

Posted on 08/31/2012 6:00:36 AM PDT by dennisw

Controversial anti-Obama billboards showing children giving the finger to President Barack Obama have sparked outrage among passing drivers. The three provocative campaign posters are on display outside a motorbike accessories store off Route 27 in Hanson, Massachusetts.

One shows a little girl raising her middle finger next to the message: 'Thanks Obama. You’ve spent my lunch money, my allowance, my inheritance, 35 years of future paychecks and my retirement. You Jerk. Vote Mitt Romney For 2012!'

Beneath the picture are the words: 'Somewhere in Kenya a village is missing its idiot. Obama – One Big A** Mistake America. Vote Mitt Romney For 2012!' Eric Folsom, a father from a neighboring town, told local newspaper The Enterprise that it could put him in a difficult position when he passes by with his six-year-old daughter. 'If she saw that, she’d say "Why is that little girl doing that? What does that mean?"' he said. 'How do I explain that?'

Nothing controverial here; it’s simply depicting the obvious. Obama has been a disaster and it will take many years to recover from this national mistake.

The left-wing maggots had no problem when the village idiot message was directed at GWB. What goes around comes around.

geesh! tell your daughter the truth, educate her so that her generation does not make the same mistake.

Is this father scared that his daughter may repeat the truth which is on the billboard?

Time to indoctrinate children at home.

But a village IS missing an idiot.

And probably not a village in the 57 states. You know, where paralegals revive people who faint. Where the navy is staffed by corpsemen. Where they think a North African country is Lybia. Where an “author” might be Kenyan-born for 17 years or so. Until he decides to run for President.

Of course, the whole "village missing its idiot" meme was not invented last week. But none of the Looney Lefties care about that. It was ok for use against GWB but when it's Obama, it's racist.

And...Oh yeah....CHICAGO!

Town officials say the signs are distracting for drivers and illegal, as the store's owner has no permit to display them.

Somehow if these were anti-Romney posters I doubt that permits would enter into it.

the Government, is STEALING money, from CHILDREN.
(both parties! both Obama AND Boehner are guilty !!!)

...
and sure, Obama is much worse... BUT:
even under Paul Ryan’s plan, at BEST,
if Romney gets 8 years, and then RYAN gets 8 years...
they will CONTINUE to STEAL money from our children!!!
-
(not a SINGLE dollar will be repayed, on the National Debt,
for over 20 years... and MORE money will be “borrowed”
from our children!)
-
and you are concerned about manners?
-
stealing money from children... and making them SLAVES...
is outright EVIL.
-
i don’t CARE about “promises” being kept to Seniors.
why are they “entitled” to more money than they put in,
at the expense of our children and GRANDCHILDREN ???

It’s the only kind of talk the Dems understand. And the office of the President of the United States has already been diminished by its being occupied by a man who won’t even reveal his real birth certificate or anything else about his background.

You have GOT to be kidding. Ridicule is one of the best ways known to man on how to oust a fascist like Obama.It was exemplified by Winston Churchill, the historic arch enemy of Fascists like Obama ( WHich is why Obama on his first day in office removed Churchill’s bust from the Oval Office.)

And more power to them for observing the tradition of Winston Churchill in ridiculing a man such as Obama , a charismatic liberal fascist whose narcistic ego needs destruction on behalf of a free People.We need thousands more posters just like them.

Read this and get with it:

Gee, I don't know, better ask around all your liberal friends and see what they come up with. While you're at it, ask them how to explain all the gay-agenda {expletive} that the liberals are pushing for and want out in public. How are you going to explain two guys kissing at a CFL? Or the gay "pride" parades. Or just about any mainstream TV show these days?

I would far rather explain that billboard to youngsters than any of the {expletive} the left is pushing out into public.

“Poor taste, however, accurate.”

But apparently it’s ok when Clint Eastwood implies the same thing. I heard a few suggestible FU’s coming from him.

Wonder why that hasn’t been played up in the media?
I felt embarrassed for Eastwood up there.
Good guy, bad schtick.

I don’t think the RNC is going to use Clint in a political ad - at least not that performance.

We must read a UK newspaper to find out what is happening in a small new England town.

That is pretty scary to think about.

And Al Jazeera is not a bad news site to see what is going on down the block either.
