For the second time in the last few weeks, I noticed a pair of fringe types planting themselves on - and illegally blocking - the sidewalk at the north B of A parking lot exit along San Ramon Valley Blvd in town. Their M.O. is to post many amusing posters of Obama with little Hitler mustaches. I'm sure I am not the only one who has seen them. A few weeks back, it was a couple of surfer looking dudes whose posters gibbered something regarding Obama's budget cuts to Nasa. Today, Saturday the 10th, a different pair were perhaps a bit more honest about their true orientation. These two, a white male and an African American female, displayed Lyndon LaRouche PAC posters.
Now, I'm no Obama fan, though for very different reasons than the republicans who post on these boards. Perhaps if someone were displaying artwork depicting Mr. O as say.... missing a certain portion of normal male anatomy, I might go along with it. God knows he seems unwilling to stand up to anyone.
But a Hitler mustache? Really? The irony is so obvious it really does not need pointing out - particularly when the Obama posters are surrounded by LaRouche website addresses. Let's see: is our boy Lyndon a bit anti-semitic? Nah, that couldn't be! And what of the dark skinned lady tending the little "protest booth". Might she be taking a train ride somewhere if Lyndon had his way, or if there were an actual white supremacist in command? Do any of the four people I've seen in the booth care to note that folks of Jewish descent passing through B of A might not appreciate their little cartoon witticism? Do they really think cutting Nasa's budget was tantamount to some sort of nazi-esque action, never mind that it was hardly Obama's decision anyway? Moreover, do they really have nothing better to do on a hot Saturday afternoon than make complete fools of themselves in a most public way?
Make no mistake. No engineers from Nasa would be out doing this. The two guys I saw back in August might have worked for a Nasa supplier as shipping/receiving clerks, but no more. And the two today? The lady in particular needs to purchase a clue at the nearest retailer, and she needs to do it soon.
Anyone want to do a Youtube video?
