Missouri Billboard Warns: “Prepare For War” Against Government
A new billboard off of Interstate 70 in Missouri provides a short “citizens guide to REVOLUTION of a corrupt government” and issues a call to “PREPARE FOR WAR.”
This billboard replaces one that warned that the socialist “Obama-Nation” is “coming for you.” It’s unclear who the owner of the billboard is, but the first one was the work of a “Missouri businessman.”
While it’s unclear who owns it, the Lafayette County Republican Central Committee seems to endorse it.
This is his choice. It is his company. It is his money. He is asking a question that has not been answered.Hang on Mr. Wolf Your not alone. Where is the outrage about liberals who bring their politics into SCHOOL, or into show business, or into supposedly apolitical tax exempt eligible churchs ( Rev. Wright's for example. But if a conservative puts his money where his mouth is, he is evil. The left does a great job at leveraging all the assets at their disposal to wage war...against other Americans practicing their First Amendment rights.~ Wild Thing
"President or Jihad?" billboard in Wheat Ridge sparks boycott, threats ( Colorado)
A billboard at a Wheat Ridge car dealership — with a caricature of President Barack Obama as a turban- wearing jihadist — has sparked a boycott and death threats, but even more support, its sponsor said.
Phil Wolf, owner of Wolf Automotive, said the billboard asks a legitimate question about Obama's alleged lack of documentation of his American birth.
"President or Jihad?" the billboard reads. "Wake up, America! Remember Fort Hood!"
Wolf said politicians have not been held accountable.
"This man is not telling the truth," Wolf said. "He should prove he's an American."
Bobby Clark of the liberal online network Progress Now Colorado is organizing a boycott of Wolf Automotive. Clark said "birthers" and "teabaggers" like Wolf have been emboldened by mainstream Republican politicians and pundits.
"When people like Rush Limbaugh, Peter Boyles, Glenn Beck and elected officials like Sarah Palin and Sen. Dave Schultheis openly question the president's citizenship and compare him to terrorists, it gives permission to this kind of speech," Clark said. "It's hateful. It's racist. It's outrageous."
Wolf denied he's racist. He said he's written in Alan Keyes, a conservative political activist and African- American, as his presidential choice.
Wolf's cartoonish billboard also drew criticism from the Anti-Defamation League.
"This billboard exploits the recent tragic shooting at Fort Hood in a context replete with bigotry," said ADL Mountain States director Bruce DeBoskey. "It is divisive and offensive, and perpetuates harmful stereotypes about Muslims."
Wolf said that fear of asking the hard questions led to the carnage at Fort Hood by American-born Muslim Nidal Malik Hasan.
"It's a disgrace that political correctness is ruining this country," Wolf said. "We were 'too sensitive' to question Hasan . . . because he's Muslim.
The billboard cost Wolf "a couple thousand dollars," he said, and it might lose him some customers.
"If it does, it doesn't matter," Wolf said. "I've had two ladies go home terrified because of the threats we've had."
Wolf, who owns dealerships in Colorado, Wyoming and Montana, said the Obama administration has ruined the auto industry by interfering in it.
This billboard isn't likely to help sell cars, said Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for the D.C.-based Council on American-Islamic Relations.
"It's an offensive billboard on several levels," Hooper said. "It's disrespectful of the presidency and Islam. It's a racist depiction as well.
"On the other hand," he said, "this is a free country and he has the right to be offensive."
Wild Thing's comment........
This is a strongly worded sign. Some may think a billboard message like this is not particularly productive. Meaning it is a way to get a persons name on a list that might come back to haunt them. Thoughts like use prudence when making statements like this, and how a sign like this would pigeon hole ourselves as anti-government revolutionaries. After all, we are reasoned citizens who are going to carry out our vengeance at the ballot box.
This kind of thinking depicts similar lukewarm attitudes that existed circa-1776, but eventually, after all other means exhausted, someone had to put his “HANCOCK” down and declare independence.
Much of that kind of thinking is true and yet we live in different times now. My thoughts on this billboard are that we are at a disadvantage with the MSM (Lame-stream?) media and 90% of blogs being liberal-to-extreme-left. It is time we go viral-Alinky on the liberals. This billboard reflects the psyche of the American conservative fed up with the arrogant, lawless scum running DC.
IMO the time to be PC is water under the bridge...note this blog has always proclaimed it is a PC Free Zone, and every conservative needs to understand that no matter how well-behaved, well-spoken, well-intentioned, respectful, lawful ( or any other positive adjective a person can think of) we act, the LEFT WILL ALWAYS ACCUSE US of being tea-baggers, racists, rednecks, etc. etc.
A billboard worded like this shows we can act lawfully, but forcefully-history, and the Constitution, is on OUR side. The time for niceness and civility has passed. Not by our choosing, but gone nonetheless. Civilization is now in-your-face advocacy. The loudest voice will be heard. We need MORE of these signs. The times they are changing. We have the Soap box, ballot box, jury box, and God help us and ONLY as a last resort the cartridge box.
The fear of “getting on a list” loses it’s meaning when people feel more and more certain they are facing an enemy. When the Texans hung the “come and take it” banner on a cannon,,,, when someone hoisted the “don't tread on me” flag,,, it indicates they are far past caring what the enemy thinks.
These sentiments don’t need our finger wag, they need to be seen as a dire warning to those who are bent on a Socialist dictatorship in America.
I am all for this billboard and hope there will be more of them. I say run with it. What can they do? Are they going to scare conservatives away from conservatism? Are they going to get their own panties in a wad as they talk about how “dangerous” the right is? Is the government going to outlaw free speech and dissent? If the first happens, we’ve already lost and the last two are going to happen anyway.
The ballot box is broken! ACORN, illegals, and voter fraud will fix future elections. The courts are useless at best, and parties to treason at their worst. What is left for us to do to defend the Constitution?
At some point, we have to grow a pair and start being “inflammatory”. As long as we continue to bitch amongst ourselves and no one is willing to be the guy that says, “Give me liberty or give me death”, they will never take us seriously. Who is willing to be the first signer of the Declaration of Independence this time?
There’s a long road from being labeled anti-government revolutionaries because of a sign or two to the first shot being fired and maybe we can avoid the first shot if, as the sign says, we “Prepare for War.” Our government is supposed to fear us. Instead, it laughs at our impotence as it passes bills in the middle of the night to enslave us forever.
The sentiment I wrote about at the beginning of my comment I do understand. But the cold reality is that being civil has brought us now to what is essentially a Marxist takeover. They think they are as close as ever, and they are going for all the marbles.......now.
Against this,there is a certain element in America that will not submit much further. A gun-grab, a child-grab through mandatory civil service, the deliberate destruction of the economy, the prosecution of Cheney, a bigger ACORN fraud,,etc. Any could be a spark.
They are unrelentingly coming for us. Nothing wrong with a few BLUNT reminders to them that it will take more than a few signatures to enslave us. They need to be certain of the price to be paid if they actually cross the lines they openly state they will.
What I hope and pray for, is that they understand what rumblings like these billboards mean. My fear is that they don’t understand Americans enough to understand the meanings. To them it’s all a parlor game.
Now this is important to remember too.
Recall if you will the attitude of the South before the Civil War. There were plenty of grounds for disagreement. The people of the South thought the war would be won in short order and their rights would be restored.
Right now some on our side have adopted the same mindset, even blasting those with cooler heads for ‘willingness to harvest the benefits of victory by patriots’. Even a patriot can come to the conclusion that the time is not right. Watching millions die is worse than keeping your powder dry and letting cooler heads prevail until nothing else will do. I still say we are not there yet....VERY CLOSE but not yet.
Obama is destroying the left. Remember the post about 61% do NOT want his socialized medicine. That is more then it was several months ago, and a lot of it has to do with all of the conservatives speaking out. Speaking out at blogs, in the articles Sarah writes, Michele Bachmann, Liz Cheney, Mike Pence, Jim DeMint, many other names as well we all know the names, many on our side have been speaking out. Those speaking out about Cap and Trade ( Tax) and ACORN. Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Glenn Beck, Laura Ingraham , even Hannity comes through some of the time. These are all making a difference. Obama has ticked off some in the media and that list keeps growing. Sometimes small comments and other times actual reporters speaking out, they never did that during the campaign as they worshiped the pos Obama.
First, we’re conservatives who believe in the rule of law - both a blessing and a curse. took the Founders 25 years to organize, create a political base and find leaders to take on the British Crown. The leftists have been working to overthrow the United States since 1910. And every succeeding generation has done nothing to stop it. So the work falls to us.
We’re at the organization stage. That’s good. From here, we’ll find our George Washington and Col. Moultrie and Sergeant Jasper.
In the meantime, as we all know the Democrats are thumbing their noses at we the people. The resultant ire is pushing at the wall and they can’t see it. They are being told that the majority of the people don’t want what they are doing, and they continue to do it anyway. They can’t be that stupid that they can’t see the sentiment that is welling up. People are out of work and they are fiddling while Rome burns on a health insurance bill that they know won’t make it in the end. Families are loosing their homes and they are talking about the limp wristed one Obama making promises at Copenhagen that will tax the living daylights out of our energy. They are unreal! There is no question but that they are heading in a direction that will suddenly spur a push back, and it may not be just in the voting booth. If you are reading this, make an effort to alert them of how you feel. If only a few of us do it, they will think they are getting away with it. As you can see by these signs, some have already been pushed too far by these clowns. Take a shot at waking them ( politicians) up by contacting them and telling them your thoughts. Might save us all a period of upheaval.

This is so great to see! That people are waking up and seeing clearly what rose colored glasses have done to us. To many have long thought the grass is always greener on the other side, but now we can see it's not and sometimes the grass is dead on the other side. I just think it's crappy that the dems up for election next time are just going to retire with full pension instead of being voted out. They know they've done wrong, so they're going to stick with another bill, just one more time-their pensions.

Funny how the left never worried about disrespecting the Presidency when Bush was in office.

It seems like all we love about America is being destroyed or coming apart. Yes, The Constitution is being snubbed by the Dems. They are mad with power from their majority and want their power to grow. They want the reign to be absolute and everlasting.
We will have to fight the everyway we can. I hope an awakening costituency at the voting booth in 2010 and 2012 will do the job. If all else fails there is always the Second Amendment, but I hope we never get to that.
Great comment WT.

Why is it they accuse us of being racists, when they did everything they could to get rid of Bush. they even made a movie about it. They then call themselves enlightened.
As WT said, its his money, his time and his opinion. Maybe they are afraid someone else will agress with it.
Then there is those "Republican Leaders": Rush, Glenn Beck, and of course there's Sarah Palin, don't cha know. I don't need any leader to tell me not to trust obama and wonder why he doesn't have the countries best interest in mind.
This leftys response makes me wonder if he doesn't suspect that obama is NOT a citizen and hopes the Right(us, rednecks) would just go on to something else. That would be easier to refute.
This guys response is telling.

You are right about the man who put up the sign getting his name on some list, but like those who signed the Declaration in 1776, he puts other things above life and personal fortune just as the founders did.

If the Dhimmicrats and their Mulatto-in-Chief don't like that "WE" put up such signage, they can begin to conduct themselves in a patriotic fashion.
And, on a par with all this, I just met a prospective state senator here in Florida at a Tea Party Rally saturday evening. When I went to his web page, I found a very good short read on the difference in a politician and a statesman. If you care to, check this link, and see why I bring it to this political web site:

GREAT comments and input, thank you all so
Tom, thank you and I agree I hope we never
get to that point.
Yes we have minds of our own and we know
what our Constitution says and are glad
we have it. The left knows what it says
but they ignore it right in our faces. Oh
how I wish they could all be treated like
the criminals against are country they are,
for their treason to our Constitution.
