Honestly those are disgusting. The caricature is racist itself and most of what is written (and misspelled) is untrue. This is not free speech as much as it is libel and defamation.


Please, how is it racist in any way? You obviously don't read many financial or wall street news papers, because they have cartoons in them like this all the time. Get real, your only mad because it's true.
Umm... no. The accentuated ears, lips, teeth and noise coupled with the reduced cranial dome is classic racism.

Emphasizing certain (prominent) elements in facial/body features is called CARICATURE. They're done all the time. Next time you're at a county fair have one done of YOU and then maybe you'll get it.

It's not racist it's satire. Get over yourself.

That was great OP..
I think it is good to get the message out,
anyway you have too.

If people can not take a joke, then I don't know where we
are headed as a country...

To bad, sad, and terrible though. All that is true!

The signs are not the real issue, the right to free speech is and whether there was a tussle in the first place or is it Dis-Info.



you're right...i got sucked in...and i flamed about it in my reply to the OP. even though i'm older and presumably wiser, i let my emotional guard down. this is an issue of free speech, nothing more, nothing less. but, i wonder if the OP likes to pull the wings off of moths in front of children, or show large color photos of aborted fetuses in public.

I agree the racism is a total non-issue, the signs are just caricatures, and are not racist. Arguing about whether it's racist or not is not the issue here.

I disagree with you over the point of "US Government versus Washington State" because there is no credibility to the notion that the feds "petitioned" anyone to remove the signs, nor any credibility to the notion they are going to withhold money from Washington. There is also no credibility to the notion that Washington State has even acknowledged these signs, much less threatened to secede from the union over it.

You all are being played here by a fabricated headline.

Signs like these depicting any number of politicians crop up all the time. Unless the sign violates a zoning law, or depict obscene material, they're usually left alone. My hometown has a few like signs these "ranting" political diatribes painted on the side of buildings that border a highway that have targeted our local political leaders for years, no one bats an eye at them other than to get a chuckle or two. They're on private property and are protected by the 1st amend.

Again, the original source article at "forum.punjabijunktion.co.in" only posts images of the signs and makes no claim of a "Feds versus Washington" bruhaha. However, someone at "Dailypaul.com" has decided to copy the forum post at punjabijunktion and included the fabricated statement "The federal government is now petitioning to have these signs removed or Washington state will be denied additional monies for interstate highways.".

Show me one verifiable source for that claim.

This is just another bogus headline designed to work up the right-wing and it seems to be working, apparently NO ONE in the right-wing blogosphere can be bothered to confirm such ridiculous claims before running around in an outrage and repeating the claim in spite of a lack of sources like it was the gospel truth.


If you want to be outraged over the sign for how they depict Obama - fine.
If you want to be outraged over the claims in these signs - fine.
If you find them hilarious - fine.

If you want to be outraged over the feds threatening Washington State to remove the signs and Washington State in turn seceding from the union - well, buddy, you need to learn to discern a troll post and rumor-mongering when you see it, otherwise you'll be in a perpetual rage over false headlines.


ETA:

I can see the OP has since amended his original post title. It was "Washington State may secede from Union over Obama images posted along highway". - It was that claim that was a fabrication.

Yes, because both of those things are just as bad as a caricature right? Where do you people come up with these obnoxious and disgusting analogies? Yes and because the OP finds these billboards funny he must also be a satanic terrorist that eats baby fetus for breakfast. You people really never cease to amaze me.

Oh noooooooo someone is making fun of the Messiah again out come the liberals. really, their hypocrisy knows no bounds. I am sick of the race card being pulled, get over it already, no one really gives a %^$# what color the moron is sheeesh.

See you libtards forget one very important thing, it's called free speech, deal with it. To the junior attorney general who claimed libel and defamation.....just so you know, public figures and public servants (which all government employees are, politicians both) can not sue for libel and defamation. Even if they could sue for those issues...could Barry prove he lost financial gain or suffered a loss of reputation that resulted in loss of business or financial gain? Nope, he could not, its just some dude excersing his RIGHT to free speech and political discourse,

What is exactly racist about a caricature????? The man does have big ears....even he himself has made fun of them on occasion. Caricature are supposed to play on physical attributes of the person......somebody needs to not pull out the racist card too often....there is a credit limit on them you know.....
The Race Card is Maxed Out

First you are indirectly apologizing for your remark then you go right back to making idiotic statements about dis-membering moths!How in anyway is that related to these pics or me for that matter?
You said it clearly,you are too emotional,check yourself.

Well being a Brit I don't feel it's my place to get overly involved in US politics ... but I have to say that whilst the handwriting was neat ... the spelling was apalling and that kind of detracts from the point the person / people who made the signs were trying to make and ended up making themselves more of joke than the signs.

Bit of a backfire

as usual, the branch of the fedral gov't that creates legislation and passes budgets is ignored. I guess it takes more effort to draw those cartoons

This was my point exactly. Who cares about the cartoon. The spelling shows what the level of intelligence of these people are.

Now you know why we have gridlock, dealing with people that 'graduate' from the 3rd grade and feel they know how to run a country.

So you are supposing the intelligence level of the artist based on spelling and grammar?And alluding that it is cases like this one that we have Gridlock..Dude sorry but that makes no sense.Talk about reading a book without the book..Hope you don't base all your conclusion on instances like this.

"people like me" don't see anything funny in these billboards. obama has been trying to get medical coverage for millions of people that have nothing or close to it, EVEN WHEN THEY WORK FULL TIME! let's see how many years you would be willing to go WITHOUT your daughter or son ever seeing a doctor..... he tried to get the stimulus bill, where the whole amount went to economic job creation, but, the republicans would not pass it UNLESS it had 366 billion in tax breaks, and approx 100 billion of the 800 billion went to state coffers, so it would give REPUBLICAN and democratic governors time to adjust their budgets with the least amount of harm to their own people, but the REPUBLICAN governors never give credit for pulling their *ss out of the fire. after 2 1/2 years, approx. 40% of judges nominated by obama to fill empty federal court judgeships, STILL HAVE BEEN DENIED BY THE REPUBLICANS, the republicans are doing everything they can to hurt this country, just so they can make obama lose in the next election. i don't give a d**m about the republicans, because they don't give a d**m about the bottom 95% of this country...they want poor people to go hungry, to go homeless, to get no medical coverage, no social security, no college funding for the poor and middle class, and work harder and longer for less money. the republicans want to bring down this country...NO?....look at the congressional record at the bills they voted for and AGAINST....it's in black and white and on the record, no "sound bites" there.

No, there have been several instances of Tea baggers misspelling words, twisting facts, and just outright lying. These are the actions that I base my conclusions on.

Not all teabaggers are as dumb as a rock. But the vast majority brings down the average. Sorry if your affiliated them, they will drag you down.

It was hilarious to read those signs though....taxe....comerade.....hilarious. I appreciate a good laugh, and the tea baggers provide.

The same insults could be hurled at liberals and Obama himself. remember he's been to all 57 states, only 2 more to go. The left is just as capable of misspelling a word, it's not like the tea party has the monopoly on bad spelling and grammar. You know what else, calling tea party supporters teabaggers is a little rude don't you think? You wouldn't want me running around calling you and all your friends names like , i dunno, let's just use butt%^$&er. You gave me a good laugh there butt*&%^er.

They are pretty far off the mark to me.

Funny thing about the Obama Hatred syndrome is that Coodery rednecks and ATSers
carry on ridiculous FOX/BECK memes that are not based on anything substantive
but butt hurt feelings.

Socialist

If that guy is a socialist, I am a conservative.


Being anti soldier is the funniest attack, Obama's policies towards the the troops and VA
are WAAAAYYYYYY more generous than BUSH who touted his "love for the Troops".

All I gotta say is

PERRY '12

and remember


CORPORATIONS ARE PEOPLE, MY FRIEND!
