An 80-year-old woman who remembers when the United States helped defeat the Nazis faces charges for tearing down posters of President Barack Obama with a Hitler mustache.
Nancy Lack said she was livid when she saw the posters, put up by supporters of perennial fringe presidential candidate Lyndon LaRouche, outside of her post office in Hebron, Conn., NBC Connecticut reported.
"My generation went through the Second World War, and Nazism is about the worst there can be," Lack told NBC Connecticut. "I just got very angry that they would do that to Obamas image."
She took down the posters, knowing she would get in trouble for it, and put them in her car while a worker with LaRouchePAC followed her.
Afterward, she was arrested and now faces sixth-degree larceny and breach of peace charges.
"I guess I deserved it. I stole the posters," she said, adding that she stood by her actions.

Brackwards with 0bama!
LaRouche? I thought he was dead.
It took 3 people to write this article?
If convicted, Lack could face three months behind bars and a fine. She is expected in court next week.
She’s an Obama supporter. Lock her up.
Why does this make you smile. It appears that she is an Obama supporter, doesn’t it? Did I interpret this story wrong?
There should be no interpretation required for news stories.
Where was this lady’s outrage when the libs had posters of Bush with a Hitler ‘mstash? Sorry, I don’t have any sympathy for her.
Turns out is is 90 years old. Still a fruitcake.
No sympathy for her here.
How do you take a poster down with a mustache?
“Freedom of speech!!”
Unless I don’t like what you’ve got to say
Were Bush Hitler posters put up in her neighborhood?
No sympathy for her?
As a child of two Holocaust survivors, I find your attitude reprehensible.
Whether it’s Obama, Bush or anyone else, I applaud this woman’s actions and deplore the idea of some who would paint someone out as Hitler.
Believing otherwise makes you scum in my book.
Is that when an eleven-year-old steals another guy’s condoms?
National Socialists of Germany, or International Socialists that infest America today. Little difference. And once International Socialists consolidate their power in a country, they magically become National Socialists.
It makes me smile for what I would assume is the same reasons. That is that an Obowma supporter was caught red handed stealing posters that she found offensive and is now going to be punished for it.
So she didn’t like the posters? Too bad, there is a thing called free speech and it’s not just for Obowma and his sycophants.
I don’t like seeing Obowma support posters in my neighborhood but I know it’s unlawful for me to rip them down.
She said she knew it was wrong but did it anyway because she didn’t want someone showing Obowma for who he is.
Sucks to suck.
Hitler, Stalin and Mussolini were all three Socialists..
Like Obama... a disciple of Saul Alinsky who learned from all three..
Rules for Radicals - Saul Alinsky
Very carefully. You could get a nasty paper cut.
People have a First Amendment right to own and display offensive posters.
It is a crime to steal someone else's property.
Your parentage or her life experiences do not confer on you or on her the authority to infringe on anyone else's constitutional rights or to steal anyone else's property.
Why does it make you smile? Is this woman Jewish? Was she living under Nazi occupation in Europe or was she a ten year-old child living in America when America entered WW2 in 1941? What offends her? Granted, it is poor taste to deface a poster in such a way but where, I wonder was this woman’s outrage when George Bush was treated in similar fashion.As a matter of fact Democrats routinely refer to we conservatives as ‘’Nazis’’. Where is the Lefts outrage over that?
