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 Obama’s 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.

Brownshirts?

This woman is a brownshirt? Everything you disapprove of does not make it Nazi-related.

If this had been someone else’s private property, I would have a problem with it. Public property. No.

If someone hung a poster across from your house on public property of a man having sex with a 2-year-old girl, would you leave it there?

Just because you are a cute little old lady doesn’t mean you can go around destroying other people’s property.
Unless you are part of a angry liberal mob then its ok to pull people out of trucks and nail them in the head with a brick.

Incorrect.

Everything I disapprove of makes it a Nazi.

Examples:

I do not like the Obama administration. That means they are Nazis.

My grocery store no longer carries Blair's After Death sauce. That is because they are Nazis.

On the way home, in an airplane, a girl kept kicking the back of my seat. What a Nazi.

Q.E.D.
