FDNY probes defaced image of Obama at firehouse
Associated Press ^ | Jun 22, 2010 6:51 am | AP various

NEW YORK (AP) ― The FDNY is investigating how a defaced image of President Barack Obama got on a toolbox inside a Bronx firehouse.

FDNY spokesman Jim Long told the Daily News Monday night that the matter was under investigation. He declined further comment.

The newspaper says the stenciled picture of the president with the word "believe" and then defaced with the word "hustler" in big red letters was discovered at Engine 45, Ladder 58 in East Tremont. Beneath the image, someone scrawled the words, "Allah Akbar," or "God is great" in black ink.

Apparently it's on some guy's toolbox.

Union members apparently can't get off the plantation.

Of course not. Anytime there was criticism of the hatred for Bush, we were told that "dissent is patriotic". Remember Pelosi saying that?

Don’t know. I cannot discover anything better, but I do not know American slang, except Mexican cuss words.

“FDNY rules bar firefighters from displaying vulgar or offensive material in the firehouse”

Unless they're now concerned about “two wrongs don't make a right”, it would seem the problem is with the original obscenity painted on the lunchbox.

Here's one of my biggest pet peeves with the enemedia these days:

"Allah Akbar," or "God is great"

"Allah Akhbar" does NOT translate to "God is great," because Allah is not the same as God. Allah is the god of Islam. The enemedia loves to conflate the god of Islam with the God of Isaac, Jacob, Abraham, and Jesus, but they are not, and cannot be the same.

Bringing on the "Tashlan", huh, lamestream media?

You made me look that one up. Turns out Unabomber is derived from university and airline bomber. I had forgotten the airline part. On 15 November 1979, he placed a bomb in the baggage compartment of AA Flight 444. It fizzled, but 12 of 78 passengers needed treatment for smoke inhalation. The FBI believes it would have taken down the airplane, had the detonator worked properly.

There is no obscenity...but the picture of his greatness and the word "Believe" shown together is about as close as you can get.

No! All the pics of Mr. Bush as Hitler, a monkey, etc., well that was just okey-dokey. Anything that shows Obammy as anything other than a Newsweek cover with a photoshopped halo is....RACIST!

I am so sick of the coddling of this bird brain because he happens to be half-black I think my head is about to explode. These idjits on the left sure didn’t have a problem making horrid jokes about Justice Thomas or Ms. Rice. Ugggggh. I think I’m going to do a poster of WunderBoy, make it particularly harsh and post it at the local grocery store. Ooooooh. Might hurt somebody’s widdle leftist feelings and make the tingle in their leg go away.

There is a poll there that doesn't need FReeping:

Poll Results

Was this simply a political statement, or a case of racism against the President?

Racism 4%
Politics 96%
