Billboard Compares Obama to Theater Shooter [POLL/VIDEO]
A billboard in Caldwell, Idaho is drawing massive negative attention as it displays a photo of President Barack Obama and the Aurora, Colo., shooter, James Holmes. The text says, “Making Statism Unpopular.”Then has the photo of Holmes and beneath says: “Kills 12 in a movie theater with assault rifle, everyone freaks out.” Then under Obama’s photo says: “Kills thousands with foreign policy, wins Nobel Prize.” Is this completely disrespectful to the victims of the shootings, their families, and the President for the comparison?
The owner of the billboard has defended it stating:
“We’re not saying that Obama is a lunatic.”
The owner of the billboard also says that they want to draw attention to the military families sacrificing for freedoms.
