Idaho billboard links Obama with alleged Colorado shooter James Holmes

An anti-Obama advocacy group based in Idaho has decided to co-opt the image of the infamous Colorado movie theater shooting suspect James Holmes in order to attack the president. A provocative electronic billboard in Caldwell suggests that President Obama’s foreign policy is far deadlier than the alleged killer’s massacre in Aurora, Colorado. The Huffington Post reports:

An electronic billboard in Caldwell, Idaho that compares President Obama to James Holmes, the 24-year-old man accused of killing 12 people in an Aurora, Colo., movie theater on July 20, has sparked outrage in the community, reports The Idaho Statesman.

The giant sign on Franklin Road and North 21st Avenue features a photo of Holmes with the words, “Kills 12 in a movie theater with assault riffle, everyone freaks out,” written under his picture, juxtaposed to a photo of Obama with the words, “Kills thousands with foreign policy, wins Nobel Peace Prize,” written below.

The billboard often features anti-Obama messages, and is sponsored by The Ralph Smeed Foundation, the supporters of the late activist for libertarian causes in Idaho. Foundation member and former state lawmaker Maurice Clements, told The Idaho Statesman the billboard is a response to Obama’s ‘broken promise’ to bring home the troops.
