Colorado Billboard Paints Obama As Muslim Jihadist
Phil West, the owner of a car dealership in Wheat Ridge, CO, says he put up this billboard because, “Since Fort Hood, I’ve had it. You can’t suggest things; you can’t profile; you gotta call a spade a spade.”
The billboard, located at 4855 Miller Road, shows two cartoonish images of Obama wearing a Muslim turban and reads “PRESIDENT or JIHAD?”
It also says “BIRTH CERTIFICATE – PROVE IT!” alluding to the conspiracy theory which claims Barack Obama was born in Kenya rather than Hawaii, which would disqualify him for the office of President
The words “WAKE UP AMERICA! REMEMBER FT. HOOD!” appear on the bottom of the billboard.
West ads, “Everything I have read about Mr. Obama points right to the fact that he is a Muslim. And that is the agenda of what Muslim is all about. It’s about anti-American, it’s about anti-Christianity.” West appeared on David Sirota‘s AM760 radio show.
While the ADL issued a statement calling the billboard an exploitation of the Ft. Hood shootings that is “divisive and offensive, and perpetuates hateful and harmful stereotypes about Muslims”, prominent conservatives have been silent thus far.
“That could suggest that conservative leaders are afraid to confront the extreme fringe of their base,” Sirota said. “Or it suggests they actually condone this message. Either way, it’s disturbing.”
Just yesterday, we highlighted a billboard in Missouri urging Americans to prepare for revolution against the government. These are good reminders to always keep your eyes on the road.Click here for reuse options!
