Regarding this poster that's popping up all over Southern California:

Any speculation of who the artist/s might be? If anyone is going to be well informed on the topic, I would expect the members here to be. It reminds me of the Vote Anarchy 09 Cooper set from earlier this year.

I'm going to guess Sabo or Baxter Orr, but it's more than likely just an unknown. With Photoshop and relatively inexpensive printing available, it seems like anyone can be a poster artist these days.
I'm surprised there hasn't been any discussion of this here yet.

Definitely reaffirms the fact that liberals tend to be better artists/designers than conservatives.

Is it really that offensive to people?

I find it quite funny to see this as a politcal satire comentary, no matter how much I could disagree with whatever message the artist is trying to convey

Fu*k the notion that anything is off limits or untouchable

I get offended by stupidity sometimes... but this doesn't offend me.
You are right about anything being untouchable, especially a politician!
They always have to come up with a word to scare the inbred, uneducated, trash in this country...
Lame thing is I'll bet most of them have no idea what it even means. :wink:

OOOH SOCIALISM... you poor dip shits need to band together and make sure that the rich won't have to face the same shitty health care and doctors as y'all.
The country depends on it.

I hate to be the one to break it to you, but NAZIs were/are socialists.
Nazism, officially in German as National Socialism (German: Nationalsozialismus), refers to the ideology and practices of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party or NSDAP

Lets all band together and make sure the rich stay rich. Maybe in one more generation of status quo the backs of the middle class and poor can be crushed completely. Then the billionaire class of criminals can subjugate the ghosts of the dead that bailed them out.

That's like saying that Stalin was a Marxist... Fascism is in NO WAY Socialism. Opposite ends of the political spectrum, regardless of how crafty Adolph was back in day with labels... Kind of reminds me of all of the small "Liberation" groups in Africa & L. America who always include "Democratic" in their name... though they have NOTHING to do, nor do they desire anything close to, a democracy... :pint:
