Denver Billboard Calls Obama a Jihad, Questions His Residency, References Ft. Hood

by Ben Hoffman

I caught this story on the Ed show this evening. An owner of a car dealership in a suburb just outside of Denver put up the following billboard:

Okay, first of all, the nouns don’t match. Obama is the president, but a person can’t be a jihad. A jihad is a religious war. He could be a jihadist, I guess, but Obama’s not really very religious. Bush was probably more of a jihadist. He thought God told him to invade Iraq. It was probably more like the nuts who claim to have seen UFOs, though. Those stories always begin with “we were sitting on the front porch drinking beer…”

But back to the billboard. Okay, the creator of the billboard, Jeff Wolf, believes Obama is a religious nut and he doesn’t believe our president was born in the U.S. But what’s the reference to the Ft. Hood shooting. The billboard reads “WAKE UP AMERICA! REMEMBER FT. HOOD” Is he blaming Obama for the Ft. Hood shootings? Sure, why not? Right-wingers are blaming Obama for the failed economy, the enormous federal debt, the two wars, and who knows what else. Why not blame him for the Ft. Hood shootings?

“I think the sign’s great. It’s showing what is true,” a right-winger commented. Hmmmm… Obviously a Glenn Beckite.

“I believe in it enough. I believe in America enough that I think it’s worth the risk,” Wolf said.

Evidently, Wolf believes in America enough to spread lies, rumors, and innuendos about our president. What a noble American! I don’t think I’d buy a car from this guy.

  1. I saw this, too, and put a link to the Ed Schultz interview on my blog. It’s obvious that this guy hasn’t fully thought through his opinions. He was never able to explain why he was suspicious of President Obama’s birthplace, and completely misunderstands the meaning of the word “jihad”. His definition of it was baffling!

    • [It’s obvious that this guy hasn’t fully thought through his opinions.]

      That seems to be typical of these anti-Obama protesters. They get their opinions from watching Fox news, but they don’t realize they’re not informed until someone asks them to explain their position.

  2. Actually jihad is an islamic religious war.

  3. I meant to research this story when I saw it on the news… and forgot. Thanks for blogging about it. Yeah for freedom of speech… in cases like this (the billboard) it points out quite clearly where the idiots are. 🙂

    Hope you are well Ben.

  4. The sad part of this story is this guy’s car sales are up (according to him) since he put the billboard up. Gives new meaning to the question “Would you buy a used car from this guy?” In his appearance on “The Ed Show” he looked so twitchy, I thought he was going to start blaming Obama for Jon & Kate Gosselin’s divorce.

    • Three or four years ago, as the issue of torture was heating up in the news, Larry King had Jesse Ventura on his show and they were talking about Cheney’s defense of torture and claims that watereboarding ‘isn’t torture’. Ventura, a former Navy Seal, said “oh yeah, not torture? Give me five minutes with Dick Cheney and a bucket of water and he’ll be confessing to the Jon Benet murder!”

      Great moment.

  5. I like the ‘remember Fort Hood” part. This sign went up, when? – a day, two days after Fort Hood? If he assumes his audience has forgotten Fort Hood, he should save his money. They’ll already have forgotten his sign by the time they reach the next traffic light. Doffus.

  6. If you all would have voted for Bob Barr like I said we wouldn’t be having this discussion.
