Wake Up America, Where's The Birth Certificate?

Wake Up America, Where's The Birth Certificate?

This one has been burning on the back burner for a while, so I may as well finish it out before I completely forget it and only see it a month or two later. But with the birth of Big Baby Jesus coming up in the very religious Christmas festivities, it's brought to our attention yet again that Obama is being asked by the moronic public, as to where his Birth Certificate be at. Yes. These fine upstanding folks like the ones in Colorado bring about billboards that link Obama with jihadists
WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. — A billboard showing President Barack Obama wearing a turban has sparked a lot of attention at the suburban Denver used car dealership that put it up.

The sign, completed Friday by artist David Lee, shows a grinning, cartoonish Obama and bears the words "PRESIDENT or JIHAD?"

Underneath the president's image is a big yellow square with the phrase, "BIRTH CERTIFICATE, PROVE IT!"

The words "WAKE UP AMERICA! REMEMBER FT. HOOD" appear at the bottom of the billboard at Wolf Interstate Leasing and Sales, about seven miles west of Denver. The sign is visible from Interstate 70.

Lee said there were plenty of honks as he painted it.

"One lady came by and gave me the 'shame, shame' look," said Lee, of Arvada, another suburb of Denver.

Dealership owner Phil Wolf was unavailable for comment Friday, but General Manager Wayne Means said the business has seen strong opinions about its sign.

"We've had people come by and say, 'Keep it up.' We've had people come by and say, 'Take it down,'" Means said. "We can have differences of opinion. This is America."

The left-leaning advocacy group MoveOn.org called the billboard "racist" and was asking customers to boycott the dealership.

Lee said the billboard has previously held other slogans questioning the president's citizenship, along with routine ads for cars.

Yes, America. It's time to "Wake up". How can this sort of action keep going? If only we woke up. Don't you people realize that it's time to get serious about America and time to get serious about Jesus!

I know. Some idiots embarrass themselves. it should be easy to just forget them and move on. But come on, that message is pretty loaded. PRESIDENT....OR.....JIHAD!? It's a very serious question.. that makes no fucking sense. But still, Serious enough.

I can't say all of Colorado is a shit hole. You have Fat Tire being made there, so there's some non-crazy people on that land. And I hear Boulder has an anti-billboard ordinance so it is easy to tell when you have left and are in fucknut country when visiting Colorado.

I was wondering what was going to go in the yellow part of this sign, but I suppose I should have already know, right? At least we put NORAD next to Colorado Springs so that the USSR could annihilate all of the assholes in Colorado with only one device. True Story!

I'm sure the simple argument here is "Freedom of speech, yo. He's kind of dumb but has every right to espouse his stupid ideas to the world." I say.. um.. cool. Thanks for this totally non meaningless defense. I can say anything he wants. Or for that matter pay for the outside advertising for anything he wants, but by doings on a soap box he'll get some attention and it is perfectly fine to call him on it. But really "Wake Up America" sounds so fucking stupid. The Nazis were even doing it.

It just screams out as to what the hell is up with right wingers yelling "Wake up America". America must be a pretty sleepy nation. Would you have them whisper it? If someone ever unironically uses the phrase "Wake up America", you can pretty safely say they're fucking crazy or just have nothing else to use in defense of their outrage.

Then again. Maybe I should pay for a pro-stalin billboard in rural Alabama. I'm pretty sure that will quickly get burned to the ground. But still, it would be pretty interesting to see the reaction for all the two hours that it's up there. Oh, I'm giving the backwood people of Alabama credit enough to actually get it. Ha, the joke is on me. Maybe I'll just stick to a pro-evo Morales since evo owns and Stalin was a murderous thug.

Even if I did do that, it would still be a long way to evening the scores. The right wing has really gone nuts with billboards. Care for some more all up in your grill?


What's that? Haven't had enough? Have another helping of it.


And I love that we link to Socialism with Obama. Fucking hell. Come on. I wonder if anyone who paid for the next sign gets welfare or is on social security

~every day is a winding road to socialism wake up america~


I guess this just shows that billboard space is going for cheap these days. Too bad that not everyone really understands the purpose of a billboard. Take the following billboards as an example;

Someone just doesn't understand the point of a billboard. Odds are this was one of the guys at a tea party protest who wrote a novel on the front and back of their sign not realizing that you have only a couple of seconds to read whatever message they misspelled on the way to the protest.

Just imagine driving by there and trying to read all that print? It would be a lost cause. Why would you write a full short story on your billboard like that? Not to mention the messages are pretty damning. Just make you sound crazy. As one blogger who writes some insane stuff and calls out people left and right, I know first hand that a lot of writing can make you look crazy. This person just doesn't realize that.

These two are the work of Harry "X" Sysack. He's a sort of infamous local "legend" in Cleveland. He's been painting these conspiratorial, batshit racist billboards, and hanging them in front of his sign shop for the past forty years.

In the end it really is just morons spending their money on shouting out loud. At the very least I can say that this blog is free and it just takes some of my downtime to write these soap box rants. But that's much different than pissing away money on a large outdoor ad to scream out your insanity. Maybe they should be linked to Blogger or Wordpress.

We picketed Wolf Automotive in Wheat Ridge Colorado for 5 Saturdays. He backed up l0 used pick up trucks and gassed us for 2 hours. We didn't back down. Wanted your readers to know that this kind of shit isn't OK in Colorado.
