An electronic billboard in Idaho comparing President Barack Obama to alleged mass murderer James Holmes is causing a firestorm of controversy. The billboard links the President’s policies to the results of a rampage that the 24-year-old Holmes is accused of engaging in last week in which he killed 12 people and injured scores more.
The billboard shows images of both Holmes and Obama. Under Holmes’ picture, the billboard notes, ‘Kills 12 in movie theater with assault rifle – everyone freaks out.” Under Obama’s image, the billboard reads, “kills thousands with his foreign policy – wins Nobel Peace Prize.”
The billboard is sponsored by the Ralph Smeed Foundation – a group which supports causes favored by the late libertarian activist.
