Tea Party Billboard Compares Obama to Hitler and Lenin.

The North Iowa Tea Party has put up a billboard in Mason City, Iowa, comparing Hitler, Lenin and President Obama, reports the Associated Press.

The bottom of the sign reads: "RADICAL LEADERS PREY ON THE FEARFUL & NAIVE," while the words "National Socialism" appear above Hitler, "Marxist Socialism" above Lenin and "Democrat Socialism" above Obama. The word "change" is stamped on each picture.

A spokesperson for the Tea Party Patriots told the AP the sign isn't appropriate. Meanwhile, North Iowa Tea Party co-founder Bob Johnson says the sign's pictures may be getting in the way of its intended message — presumably a level-headed and civil comparison of Obama to Hitler and Lenin.


  1. The tea party is the scariest organization of people since the Nazis and slave owners!

  2. Scare people, tell lies, make them afraid. Great playbook for GOP.

  3. Culture of fear is a term used by some among public discourse to accuse public figures of inciting fear to achieve a political end, in an attempt to alarm the audience into acceding to this accusation.
    That is the GOP and tea party playbook.
