Skip to comments.Obama's 'Thank You' letter to his communist-propagandist icon artist, Shepard Fairey
Posted on 11/02/2008 10:14:08 AM PST by ETL
From Barack Obama's official website:
I wanted to make an art piece of Barack Obama because I thought an iconic portrait of him could symbolize and amplify the importance of his mission. I believe Obama will guide this country to a future where everyone can thrive and I should support him vigorously for the sake of my two young daughters. I have made art opposing the Iraq war for several years, and making art of Obama, who opposed the war from the start, is like making art for peace. I know I have an audience of young art fans and Im delighted if I can encourage them to see the merits of Barack Obama.
See? It's all about "peace, love, togetherness" and "change".
Here are some of Fairey's other masterpieces. No joke. Most of his works are along these same lines (anti-American, pro-communist propaganda). Check the link.

From Shepard Fairey's official website (ObeyGiant.com):
Check it out! I got a thank you note from Barack Obama. If he is elected, maybe I have a get out of jail free card. All kidding aside, Im honored to be acknowledged by someone so important to the future of our country. Also, the Obama campaign asked me to do a poster illustration for sale on their site. It should be out next week on barackobama.com.-Shepard
Here is the 'thank you' letter Barack Obama sent to Shepard Fairey:
"Dear Shepard, I would like to thank you for using your talent in support of my campaign. The political messages involved in your work have encouraged Americans to believe they can help change the status quo. Your images have a profound effect on people, whether seen in a gallery or on a stop sign. I am privileged to be a part of your artwork and proud to have your support. I wish you continued success and creativity.
Sincerely, Barack Obama.'"

From David Horowitz's FrontPageMag.com/DiscoverTheNetworks.org:
PROFILE: ANGELA DAVIS
* Communist professor at the University of Californias Santa Cruz campus
* Recipient of the Lenin Peace Prize from the police state of East Germany in 1979
* Provided an arsenal of weapons to Black Panthers who used them to kill a Marin Country judge in a failed attempt to free Davis' imprisoned lover, Black Panther murderer George Jackson
* Icon of the campus Left and frequent guest speaker at anti-war rallies
* Leader of a movement to free all criminals who are minorities claiming that they are political prisoners of the racist United States
* The only path of liberation for black people is that which leads toward complete and radical overthrow of the capitalist class.
Angela Yvonne Davis is a tenured professor in the History of Consciousness program at the University of California - Santa Cruz. A former member of the Black Panther Party, she is currently a University Professor, one of only seven in the entire California University system, which entitles her to a six-figure salary and a research assistant. This income is supplemented by speaking fees ranging from $10,000 to $20,000 per appearance on college campuses, where she is an icon of radical faculty, administrators, and students. Davis has also taught at UCLA and the State University of New York at Stony Brook.

Going by the headline I thought the big 0 was talking about Shepard Smith.....:)
Typical commie filth, was probably a big Khymer Rouge fan.
Ever notice how ZeroBama even refers to himself as ZeroBama with his signature. LOL! What an idiot.
What a headliner...
The One and his designer Fairey Shepard... isn’t that sweet?
This guy/fairy is a communist propagandist.
The line that has bothered me since I saw this letter was the one about seeing his work in a gallery or on a stop sign...kissing up to a sticker artist whose work is defacing a stop sign is telling to me about Obama. It would be like him admiring a graffiti artist’s work on a train. It’s obvious that it’s more important for Obama to be perceived as “cool” than anything else.
A 20x30 foot copy of this will look great at the May Day parade.
Defacing a stop sign is more important than a potential president of the United States embracing a pro-communist ‘artist’ and allowing the creep to create iconic images of him?
Obama commie artist ping!
Look at the picture I posted again.
That whole “OBEY” nonsense is actually supposed to be a form of ‘reverse psychology’ meant to get young people *not* to obey the U.S. government.
That’s why I took his “OBEY” poster and put the face from his Obama “CHANGE” poster on it.
No, it’s just a small glimpse into the mindset of someone who would be president, praising and/or elevating lawlessness. I’ve got way bigger problems with his circle of friends, and his beliefs, but this is just a small slip that shows what’s behind the curtain.
