No Shame: 80 Year Old Woman Arrested For Taking Down Pictures of Obama With Hitler Mustache
An 80 year old woman learned this the hard way when she was arrested for taking down posters of President Obama with a Hitler mustache.
Nancy Lark says she was upset when she saw posters depicting President Obama as Hitler. The posters were put up by the Lyndon LaRouche group, which has a history of doing battle against fascism and imperialism. The group is also known for passing out and posting extremist literature.
“My generation went through the Second World War, and Nazism is about the worst there can be,”Lack told NBC Connecticut. “I just got very angry that they would do that to Obama’s image.”
Lark’s boldness got her in trouble because she took down the posters and put them in her car while a worker with LaRouchePAC followed her.
Afterward, she was arrested and now faces sixth-degree larceny and breach of peace charges.
“I guess I deserved it. I stole the posters,” she said.
Truth be told, our streets aren’t any safer because an 80 year old woman tore down posters of Obama with a Hitler mustache. If the people at LaRouche don’t like Obama, that’s fine. They’re entitled to that opinion. But putting up posters depicting President Obama as Hitler is as inflammatory as it is unserious. Maybe that has a lot to do with why a group with such a long history never really caught on in American politics. Maybe it’s time for them to grow up.
