Billboard Depicts Obama As Crying Baby With Dirty Diapers!
"On Wednesday, crowds gathered at the corner of Calhoun and Coralie streets (New Orleans), looking at several signs depicting President Barack Obama as either a dunce, a puppet or a crying baby in a diaper."
The signs are on the property of a home owned by Timothy Reily -- he hasn`t made any statements to the media. Reily`s signs may be disrespectful of the president, and in bad taste, by they qualify as constitutionally protected free speech.
Protesters from outside Reily`s neighborhood have made a pilgrimage to his house to express their outrage. The publicity generated by the clueless demonstrators is helping Reily deliver his anti-Obama message to a nationwide audience.
City Council Member Susan Guidry who represents the district where Reily`s home is located had this to say: We have to determine that there is a zoning law that prohibits perhaps the size of the sign, perhaps the way that it`s erected, that it is leaning over onto public property. `Whatever we can use, we will, but of course, we do have to balance that with First Amendment rights."
This politician who has sworn to uphold the Constitution is basically saying she will employ any legal trickery to deprive Reily of his right to speak freely. Classic!
One protester cried out: This is nothing put pure racism. This is a disgrace. Is anybody surprised that the race card is being played?
The disgrace is that a mob is attempting to thwart a citizen from expressing his political views.
I hope that Reily will take down the signs of his own volition, but if the city of New Orleans forces him to take them down, I may go to the Big Easy to protest the fascist city government.
