Impeach Obama billboard in Wisconsin

February 22, 2010

This was shared to me by a friend who found the original article here.

On HWY 41, just north of Oshkosh by the medium security prison there is a new anti-Obama sign:

The Green Bay Press Gazette covered this story and interviewed some leftist asshat UW professor about the sign:

Depending on the political persuasion of the person doing the looking, the now familiar “Obama billboard” next to the Oshkosh Correctional Institution on U.S. 41 might be an honest and brave expression of frustration by a democratic citizenry. Or a baseless and unpatriotic attack on America’s leader.

To other observers, the sign is merely the latest example of rancor and unrest pervading the nation’s political system by individuals and organizations exercising free-speech rights.

“You have this saturation of bile … and a toxic stew of lies. I think it’s completely out of control and disgusting,” said Joel Rogers, a professor of law, political science and philosophy at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

And it cuts both ways.

The Obama billboard, authorized by an anonymous client of a Menasha law firm, appeared Feb. 11 and is to be in place for six months, at a cost of $1,000 a month.
