Why It’s Not Shocking To See ‘Impeachment Now’ Billboard With Giant Black Testicles
America has collectively gone nuts. Among other things, garment-rending mobs from the far-right to the far-left to all points in between appear to be blaming President Obama for almost literally everything, so given the context it’s really not too shocking to see a brutally racist billboard in Cleveland calling for Obama’s impeachment and featuring a gigantic pair of black, well, nuts.
The billboard’s message is printed in bold, all-caps text reading: “ENOUGH WITH THE LYING,” “IMPEACHMENT NOW” and “YOU’RE OUT OF CONTROL,” with a jet-black caricature of the president. It continues with the text, “DOES ANYONE IN CONGRESS HAVE A SET OF THESE?” And just above the words “TESTICLE FORTITUDE” is a jet-black, weirdly penis-less scrotum labeled “The Big Kahunas,” an obvious reference to Obama’s childhood in Hawaii.[su_center_ad]
Cleveland resident Nancy Sysack — yes, “Sysack” — who operates Harry X. Sysack Sign Co., posted the billboard to attack the president and, as with most of the screeching about impeachment, to grab a little attention, “Sometimes you’ve got to put things out there in order to make a point and get people to turn their heads,” she said, “There’s more graphic stuff in the art museum.” Well, the graphic stuff in an art museum is in a museum , not along a street in Cleveland, and considerably less racist/obnoxious than this.
Credit where credit is due: at least she had the, um, kahunas? to include the name of her business and its phone number on the sign (it’s (216) 351-6111). Not many racist trolls would take credit for something this truly awful — and posted at a time when the United States is gripped by racial tensions in Ferguson, MO.
Oh, and by the way, it’s not the first time Sysack has been responsible for a racist billboard. Back in 2002, Sysack produced a billboard showing MLK with his arm around Osama Bin Laden. Obviously Sysack wasn’t a fan of the Martin Luther King holiday and wanted to illustrate her objections by depicting the civil rights leader with the world’s most-wanted terrorist at the time. What happened to this sign? Someone burned it to the ground.
Whether it’s Iraq, Gaza, Ferguson, Ukraine, the Ebola outbreak… CONTINUE READING[su_r_sky_ad]

These people are real pieces of work. They are as paranoid, if not more so, than the Alex Jones lemmings. Here’s a few more images they produced at one time or another:

I’m willing to bet these are the same people that will not allow
anatomically correct diagrams in high school sex ed.

They probably don’t allow sex ed.

Out of the classroom, and back onto the playground, where it belongs.

You’re probably right, they can get that info in their church group.

” in 2002, Sysack produced a billboard showing MLK with his arm around Osama Bin Laden.”
So, the impeachment thingy might have something to do with race then?

Now, now, now. These are just good “Christians” trying to take their country back. Back to the 1950s. Or the 1850s.

We should put one up right next to it, ” STOP THE INBREEDING”

If the situation doesn’t exist invent one!

Once again, the president being black is not an impeachable offense! How often do we have to repeat this?
voice_reason August 19th, 2014 at 9:07 am
has to be repeated every single day
MIAtheistGal August 19th, 2014 at 9:10 am
The president being black is not an impeachable offense 😉

Boy, who wouldn’t want signage designed by the person who created this.
Bunya August 18th, 2014 at 1:26 pm
This is just another excuse for those less endowed to post pictures of male genitalia.
m2old4bs August 18th, 2014 at 1:29 pm
And these folks see nothing wrong with what they are doing/saying/promoting. Sad, truly sad. Need a new neck brace for all this head shaking.
tiredoftea August 18th, 2014 at 1:43 pm
Giving stupid a bad name since 2002, at least.
Bunya August 18th, 2014 at 5:14 pm
I’m thinking this may be a complement to the president. After all, why are they black and why are they huge?

Nancy sounds like such a lovely lady…How can such an unassuming little woman be such a raving vile witch?

Bigotry under any other name is still bigotry.

“America has collectively gone nuts.”
That’s the opening sentence in Bob Cesca’s column. Correction, Mr. Cesca. It’s not all of America that’s gone collectively nuts. It’s WHITE America that’s gone collectively nuts.
I don’t recall similarly racist billboards put up by African-American, Latino, Asian or Native American critics of ANY of President Obama’s white predecessors.
White America is collectively going nuts because it’s finally dawned on them that their days of political, economic and cultural dominance (Read: power and privilege) is slowly and inexorably coming to an end, as America’s population is slowly and inexorably changing from a white majority to a nonwhite majority.
Already, the “Millennial Generation” of young people under 30 years of age is a majority-nonwhite population, according to the Census Bureau. The teen-age population is nearly 60 percent nonwhite, the Census Bureau says.
At least four states already have majority-nonwhite populations: Hawaii (77.6 percent), California (60.6 percent), New Mexico 60.2 percent) and, most recently, Texas (55.5 percent). The Aloha State is unique in that whites have always been a minority of the population and it is the only state with a majority Asian population — slightly more than half of all Hawaii residents are of Japanese ancestry alone.
Inevitably, as the older generations pass on and today’s young people inherit the country, America 50 years from now will be a truly rainbow nation. It is only now that politicians and the media are taking serious note of this trend — and many whites are, quite frankly, freaking out over it.
This is the real reason why we’re seeing an upsurge in racially-charged expressions by whites long accustomed to being the “top dogs” in the pack. They know that their days of being the “top dogs” are numbered — a fact that was driven home by Mr. Obama’s re-election in 2012 — and they simply can’t handle it.
