Obama as a Socialist Dictator?

Billboards presenting Barack Obama, Adolf Hitler and Vladimir Lenin appeared last week in Mason City, Iowa, in the central part of the United States.”Radical leaders prey on the fearful and naive” – can be read on the posters that were hung by the local representatives of the Tea party. Some political comentator claim those posters imply similarities between the American President, and both the Nazi and Communist leaders. What is more, over the image of Obama we can read the sign: “Democratic Socialism”. Similarly, under the photograph of Hitler’s -“National Socialism”, and over the head of Lenin – “Marxist socialism.” Under each shot the word “Change” appears- a slogan of the last presidental campaign. As Bob Johnson says, a co-founder of the North Iowa Tea Party: “The purpose of the billboard was to draw attention to the socialism. It seems to have been lost in the visuals. The pictures overwhelmed the message. The message is socialism.” Nevertheless, the posters linking Obama to Hitler and Stalin were criticized not only by American media , but also by other members of the Tea Party movement.As Shelby Blakely, a member of the Tea Party Patriots observes: “That’s just a waste of money, time, resources and it’s not going to help our cause. It’s going to make people think that the tea party is full of a bunch of right-wing fringe people, and that’s not true.”
