Must not criticize Obama

We read:
"A Democratic lawmaker is speaking out against an inflammatory ad in the Clarendon Metro station that tells President Obama to “go to hell.”

The lighted ad, located near the end of one of platforms, promotes a DVD documentary called “Sick and Sicker: When the Government Becomes Your Doctor,” which sharply criticizes President Obama’s health care reform law and compares it to publicly-funded health care in Canada.

“Barack Obama wants politicians and bureaucrats to control America’s entire medical system,” the ad reads. “Go to hell Barack.”

The Democratic blog Blue Virginia first reported the ad this morning. It’s been in place at the Clarendon Metro station since at least last week, based on a search of Twitter posts.

Now, local Virginia congressman Jim Moran (D) is calling for the “offensive advertisement” to be taken down.

Interesting that Moran is also an antisemite. Apparently you can criticize Jews but not Obama.

[sarc]You must not speak ill of the one, the messiah, the sort of a God, BHO. All heretics will be punished. Lets hope that the filmmaker doesn’t go walking at night like Andrew Breitbart.

"Andrew Breitbart."

Good riddance. Too bad he did not suffer when he died.

I pray that Rush Limbaugh follows Breitbart's footsteps.

IAnon. 5:10 and 5:11 (presumably the same person).
I see you're one of those ever so open minded, loving and tolerant of all viewpoints, all except any you disagree with that is, libs. I wonder if Teddy Kennedy, Robert Byrd, Lyndon Johnson and Tip O'Neal, along with so many other of your leftist heroes, are having a hot party in Hell with the likes of Stalin, Mao, Kim and Hitler among other notables statist thugs? Such a wonderful bunch you lefties lionize. Me, I prefer to reserve my admiration for patriots like Limbaugh, Breitbart and Reagan. That last would be Ronald, not Ron Jr., in case you're confused.

upon being notified by the WMATA that they cannot remove the sign as they are subject to the first amendment, Jim Moran still insisted they violate it. He's unfortunately my congressman. It's beyond the point where he should have to resign, he needs to be removed from office due to his deliberate attempt to violate the first amendement

Update at 5:15 p.m. — Rep. Moran has issued a statement in response to Metro’s statement.

I am disappointed by WMATA’s defense of this inappropriate advertisement. If their current advertising guidelines do not prohibit profane advertisements on taxpayer-funded property, then WMATA should take the initiative and update them. Profanity has no place in the public forum.

The specific language in the WMATA-approved ad that should be removed is not political, it’s profane. It defames the President of the United States in a way that coarsens the public discourse. All Americans have the right to make their voice heard under the First Amendment. But when we are talking about an advertisement on tax-payer funded facilities, as is the case with Metro, it should meet the minimum standards of propriety. I repeat my call on WMATA to exercise appropriate judgment and remove this offensive ad

To Mr. Moran:

That add does not offend me.

Rep Maxine Waters (D) can tell the TEA party to go to hell but that's alright Rep Moran's books. Hypocrites.

I wish 5:11 AM the best of health and fortune, I will not follow his hate filled remark about someone who expresses his own opinion. If you do not like Mr.Limbaugh, do not listen to him, so please stay healthy, wealthy and wise and learn to be tolerant of others.

Alright, fine! Remove the profanity. Replace it with something like "Obama, take a hike." I will wager the left would still complain.

Rush chose his words poorly. He should have acknowledged she was majoring in law with a minor in sexual studies. The sex industry is more respected than lawyers anyway.

If the ad said "Vote for anyone but Obama" liberals would cry that it's racist. If you speak anything abotu Obama, it must be praised, otherwise it's racist. If you don't support Obama, it's because you are racist. Liberals are starting to go back into full race card mode now. They were really scared about Cain because they knew they wouldn't be able to use the race card if he were the nominee.

The use of the term "Anti-Semite" is flippant, meaningless yet intriguing in that it implies irrational racial 'hatred' of a Semite, even though most jews are of european origin.

There are those who find the judaic ideal repugnant and have no desire to participate in 'judaism', which is itself a religion that requires the forced participation of non-jews under pain of death for the recalcitrant.

Many of the socialist ideals afflicting the world are consistent with the imperatives described in the following document.

http://www.archive.org/details/TheJewishUtiopia

Ask yourselves, are those described in this document, the 'gentiles' 'anti-semitic' for not wanting to come out and play in a kosher tyranny and then moving to a state of alert awareness of that which is to be imposed upon them.

Is it reasonable to alert those we care about ?

The jewish utopia is premised upon a foundation of lies. For that reason alone.... it will fail.

There is a higher power in the world than the 'g-d' of the jews.
It does not ask to be feared, or worshipped as the 'one' g-d... It cares not who believes or who does not and is without compulsion.

I won't give a flying fuck. The left wing is just as fucked up as the right wing.
