Sign outside Indiana shopping center shows Obama with Hitler mustache

Obama as Hitler KPC News

A video billboard outside a northeast Indiana shopping center shows a picture of President Barack Obama wearing an Adolf Hitler mustache.

The billboard flashes the image at the start of a display that next flashes the words “Impeach” and “Obama.”

The sign’s owner said the images were a paid advertisement that wasn’t associated with any of the businesses at Cornerstone Plaza on U.S. 6 in Kendallville, about 20 miles north of Fort Wayne.

The sign also included another message linked to LaRouchePac, a political action committee formed by former presidential candidate Lyndon LaRouche, and third that seeks to restore the Glass-Steagall Act, a Depression-era law that limited activities between commercial banks and securities firms.

Supporters of LaRouche, who has promoted a number of conspiracy theories and was convicted in 1988 of mail fraud and tax code violations, have in the past circulated posters and flyers showing Obama with a mustache like the Nazi leader’s, and his PAC has called restoration of the Glass-Stegall legislation as “the indisputable first step to global economic recovery.”

Mayor Suzanne Handshoe said the message was inappropriate, regardless of a person’s views of the president, and didn’t reflect a message the city would want to send.

Not the first time some whack job /group turned a president into Hitler. Move on.org did it with Bush. Is this any different?

Quoting jcrew6:

No, both are in bad taste, but this time it's to their guy.  So, it's a travesty.

The sign owner should have said "No". 

Sometimes free speech is just in bad taste

Wow - Did that sign look anything like these ones from six years ago? I recall there were then loud demands to impeach Bush.

Why do you think it's bad if it happens to Obama, but good if it happened to Bush? Same exact situation. Both upset some, but they are still Constitutionally protected First Amendment freedom of speech.

Are you saying these Bush-Hitler images bothered you just as much 5-10 years ago as these Obama-Hitler ones today? If so, why didn't you protest the Bush ones, instead of delightfully supporting them then?

If the wacko liberal groups can do it without an uproar, then so too can the wacko conservative groups.
