Skip to comments.One Nation, Under a New Obama Salute
Posted on 08/11/2008 6:00:23 AM PDT by cartan
George Bush had his three-fingered W salute that supporters flashed when greeting him at presidential campaign events in 2000. And now, if a Los Angeles creative agency gets its way, Sen. Barack Obama will see fans meet him with his own salute like the one above. “Our goal is to see a crowd of 75,000 people at Obama’s nomination speech holding their hands above their heads, fingers laced together in support of a new direction for this country, a renewed hope, and acceptance of responsibility for our future,” says Rick Husong, owner of The Loyalty Inc. Husong tells me that he got the idea after seeing the famous Obama-Progress poster by artist Shepherd Fairey. “We wanted to get involved some way,” he says. So, the agency came up with their own a symbol of hope and progress that also plays off Obama’s name. “We thought, ‘Let’s try and start a movement where even while walking down the street, people would hold up the O and you would know that they were for Obama,’ ” says Husong. Much thought went into the relatively simple idea. “You interlace your hands in a circle, the interlacing being a symbol of different types of people coming together and the circle a symbol of unity,” he says. Their design, unlike Fairey’s, is free, and Husong is urging people to download it and print it on posters and T-shirts. “We want to see it everywhere, but more importantly we want this sign to take the world by storm.”
LOL! Best yet.
If Obama is elected, this country will be a hellhole we won’t soon get out of.
It’s too weird.
Someone actually posted the Obama/Goatse graphic.
TO EVERY FREEPER: DO NOT SEARCH FOR GOATSE.
Screw him. I will give anyone the one finger salute if they salute me that way.
As somebody noted last Friday, to display this salute, you would have to have your back to the candidate. Which isn’t such a bad idea, of course.
Next on Dirty Jobs, Mike works with a zookeeper to artificially inseminate an elephant! (Step 1 is the dirty part...)
“If Obama is elected, this country will be a hellhole we wont soon get out of.”
There will be civil war. The parallels between 2008 and 1860 are too striking to be mere coincidence.
It may well be. Obama sure thinks everyone is an a-hole but himself.
On this thread? I didn't see it, and don't see any comments removed... maybe on another thread.
> TO EVERY FREEPER: DO NOT SEARCH FOR GOATSE.
GOOD POINT. If they're curious about what it is, but want to stay on the safe side, the Wikipedia article is reasonable and the front page does not contain The Goatse Graphic.
How about “O-hole”?
BO must not be elected, we have to much to lose and he is a disaster.
This is very impractical.
1. What about Obama supporters who are carrying things while they are walking down the street? Are they supposed to drop everything so they can have 2 free hands?
2. What about Obama supporters who are outnumbered by Hillary supporters? Is this a secret plot by Hillary to identify Obama-ites, so they can be pressured?
