AIG Political Street Art

These posters are plastered all over my neighborhood way out here in Obama County, Brooklyn USA. The very epicenter of Obamaganda.

Apparently the AIG snafu isn't going over well with the Left wing artists. I'm not happy about the AIG bonus problem either, but what about the trillion dollar spending boondoggle that will probably triple by the time President Government gets through with us.

Striking is the absence of the Omnipresent One in this hopeless iconic mishmash. If this were happening under a McCain or Republican administration, the heads of the President and Cabinet would undoubtedly be depicted with fangs dripping with blood in posters all over the place. Like they did with Sarah Palin, whose only crime was to have the nerve to run for office. Effigies would be hung from front lawns and burned in the streets.


When the Left uses the American flag in political art or demonstrations it always seems to be in either an ironic way, upside down or desecrated. Kind of sad, really.




UPDATE! The below image is courtesy of Michael Travis who sent me his delicious take on this otherwise dry, dull example of Statist street art. I like it. He even got the fangs-dripping-with-blood part in!

Jeez, they don't lighten up even after they win an election!

Burn a Banker, eh?
They're burning a country, a banker would be child's play.

Thanks for the peek at the mind of the unhinged left, UI!

Urban,

I think the AIG Execs got royally screwed. They should keep and spend their bonuses.

Read the facts.

Stogie,

That is very interesting. I had a feeling this whole thing was overblown.

Thanks!

Looks exactly like Iran after the revolution of 1979 where businessmen and bankers were put in jails or sent to exile. scary

Arrogance and Ignorance?
Sounds like Obama.

Once you have a grasp of the Alinsky playbook all this poor agitprop becomes somewhat dull. It almost should have the page references from Rules for Radicals so we can keep up with what stage they are in. Ridicule is probably the healthiest response.

Get used to the new "torch and pitchfork" politics of the left. We will see a lot more of it in the next few years.

Of course they could just be using up the leftover Obama poster paint.

I must be clueless because I haven't seen this in my trips around the city.

Beak,

I've only seen these in Brooklyn in my area. You know, Williamsburg, the playground for Shepard Fairey and all those street 'art' hacks.

I have been spending time in Midwood and been doing recon work around the city and have not been to Williamsburg. An Immigration officer needs to be familiar with the home turf of the people he interviews.

I did annoy some commies on Friday by work. I mistook their organization for IHOP and called them Trotskyite corporate whores. It took the outraged lunatic around ten minutes to figure out my Borat style humor was spoofing him.
