Posted on 07/29/2018 7:37:10 AM PDT by Yosemitest
As the clock struck midnight last Sunday, Grand Junction night owls saw redliterally.
The digital billboard looming over Rimrock Marketplace now displays a massive crimson and yellow GOP, but with the O replaced by the Russian hammer & sickle icon used by the former Soviet Union.
Mesa County progressives purchased the billboard to call out the Republican Partys refusal to challenge Trumps apparent preference for Russian denials of election interference over the unanimous assessment of United States intelligence agencies.
Grand Junction resident Anne Landman, who paid for the billboard, says its purpose is to draw attention Republicans alarming acceptance of President Trump cozying up to authoritarian dictators who disregard human rights.
While musing about a billboard on her Facebook page, a friend shared a photo of the GOP Russia design.
Landman reached out to the creator, MadDogPac of Odenton, Maryland and received permission to use the image free of charge.
Mad Dog PAC was founded in December 2017 by Claude Taylor, a former White House staffer under President Clinton.
The organization says it solicits contributions from concerned citizens to fund billboards censuring Trump, the GOP and the NRA.
The fine print on the board reads Paid for by informed citizens of Mesa County and Mad Dog Pac.
Landman says the informed citizens arent an official group of any sort, but rather friends and like-minded Mesa County residents.
The Russian GOP billboard isnt the only piece of Mad Dogs artwork to appear in Colorado.
Drivers in the Denver metro area may have seen a billboard reminding them that Mike Coffman Took $30,843 in NRA Blood Money.
The Grand Junction billboard isnt targeted at a specific elected official, but rather focuses on the Russia-friendly attitude of the Republican Party.
Furthermore, it reflects the sentiments of Mesa County progressives who are decidedly outnumbered, according to Landman.
Is Anne transgendered?
The USSR died 27 years ago. Maybe this bimbo missed that news.
Meanwhile they welcome Mexican colonists with open arms.....
That picture at the end of the story is a woman???????????????
She looks like a dude, Jim.
The democRATs are so deluded, they don’t realize that it was Hildabeast, the DNC and 0bama colluding with the Russians.
Democrats aren't too bright, aren't they?
She doesn’t even know what century it is, much less when the Soviet Union died.
Her brain is back in ‘72, when she took her Earth Shoes and unshaven armpits up to GJT from some liberal arts college in the Northeast so she could pretend to go “back to the Earth”...as long as she could have central heating and air conditioning, a Volvo, and subsidized medical insurance.
Anne was A-OK with obama bowing to the Saudi king, weren't you dearie?
What a bunch of libtards and snowflakes.
I have friends up that way. They are die-hard conservative. Kinda like Alaskan independent types.
She ought to move to Denver to be with all her pot head friends.
And Clinton and the ChiComs
I remember when the Leftists wanted America “BETTER RED THAN DEAD!”
If the GOP is now commie why are the leftists still screaming about Russia!
It is gobsmacking how the left can execute these historical inversions so effortlessly.
