Missouri Billboard Calls for ‘Revolution’ and ‘War’ Against the Government

November 20, 2009

(ChattahBox)— An inflammatory billboard appearing on I-70 in Missouri declares that American citizens should “PREPARE FOR WAR” against the government. And the Lafayette County Republican Central Committee is so impressed with the treasonous message, that it has an image of the billboard prominently displayed on its website.

The Lafayette County Republican website is just tickled-pink over the newest sign displaying extremist right-wing rhetoric along the state’s highways. “New billboard on I-70 replaces the nationally-and-highly publicized “Obamanation” billboard that quickly rose, in recent weeks, to statewide and national fame,” reads the website.

The giant billboard displays the message: “A Citizens Guide to Revolution of a corrupt government.” And then list actions for Americans to take:

“1. Starve the Beast.
2. Vote out incumbents.
3. If steps, 1 & 2 fail?
Prepare for War-Live Free or Die”

The new radical billboard replaces a previous one, which warned that the Socialist Obama was “coming for you.” The sign read: “How do You Like Your Change Now? Obama-Nation—They are coming for you! The Taxpayer—1st and 2nd amendments are in jeopardy. Live Free or Die.

The Lafayette County Republicans also hailed the Obama-Nation sign saying, it showed that “the great sleeping giant of American common-sense citizens is quite apparently awake!”

According to Think Progress, “It’s unclear who the owner of the billboard is, but the first one was the work of a “Missouri businessman.”

    I don’t see what is so “right-wing” about it. I’m actually watching “The Patriot” right now and there are glaring similarities.

    Finally! Some GOOD news!

    Why? Why? Why? If the proposed health care program is so good for the general public, why is it not good enough for the government officials? government employees? labor unions? None of them will be under this proposed plan….why?

    Why do our “leaders” not pay social security? Did you know that “they” have a bill in place that gives them a pay raise EVERY year unless they vote to turn it down? ….it is automatic. Did you know that “they” are paid $15,000 PER MONTH for the rest of their lives ….even if they are NOT in office?

    This bill board is perfect. It is nothing less than a reaffirmation of the basic tennants upon which this nation was founded. I prefer to live in a free republic, but those in Washington seem hell bent on delivering us into tyranny, both in respect to financial freedom, as well as civil rights. For those that wish the so called safety of a police state where every aspect of your life is controlled, you should be very happy with the current state of affairs. Myself, I’ll live free or die.

    This billboard is NOT inflammatory to the slightest! It speaks the truth! What in God’s name is wrong with you folks who take this offensively!? GET A GRIP!!! Our constitution Used to allow for this until the current administration passed HR 1955 (The so-called “hate-crimes” bill) or aka (thought crimes) bill. They’ve taken away our freedom of speech and opinion with threats of imprisonment for what they exclaim to be wrong! For those of you who find this offensive, pack up your belongings, and head to China. I will fight WHOMEVER decides that we should be a socialist state.

    This is freaking AWESOME!!! Way to go people! We need more of these on more billboards across America! The government HAS become our number one enemy: the DOMESTIC enemy of the Constitution. Foreign enemies can only strike at us from afar, but DOMESTIC enemies (such as the cowards and tyrants in DC) are the most dangerous because they can subtly destroy us from within. This is exactly what has happened because people have become so apathetic to what the government is doing! But people are FINALLY starting to wake up and smell the socialism and tyranny. Our Founding Fathers would be ashamed of us if they saw how far we’ve allowed the federal government to go. They have their hands in almost EVERYTHING in our lives. We need to go back to our REPUBLICAN form of government, and bring the size of the government back down to what it is SUPPOSED to be.

    I think it is about time that We The People start fighting back. We are sick of them telling us not to do the very same things that they do. We are becoming their slaves, and it’s not fair. Obama is taking our constitution and throwing it out the window, and is turning our country into a socialistic nightmare. People in Russia are more free then the people in America. We will not be your slaves, we will not lay down and lick em. It’s time to stand up and fight against tyranny and slavery. It is time to start telling them, that we will NOT lay down and take this anymore. It’s time to stand together, there are more of us then there are of them.

    Also, it is not right wing extremism. It is the people of this country finally standing up and telling our leaders that we will not be made their slaves. we are all born free, no matter how much money we make, we are all the same. FREEDOM BACK TO THE PEOPLE!

  9. Wendy Tuch on November 27th, 2009 2:10 pm

    ALL of the obamacrap is left-wing extremism, dontchaknow! I find THAT objectionable!

    Don’t know about you, but I sure as heck would be willing to donate to have more of these billboards erected throughout the USA. We can find out precisely who put this up and join ’em!!!! I start looking – you all look, too!

    Also selected short subjects: Fox News had two ladies on early this morning who have raised $$ and put up great billboards saying, “I miss hearing you say Merry Christmas” signed Jesus! We need more of that kind of sentiment shouted from the rooftops.

    Let’s go get ’em! God Bless America and Merry Christmas!

    doctort

    This government IS corrupt, and the billboard is the only way to go anymore. No one listens to the American LEGAL citizens!! When you have a great nation that is falling and it’s people being treated like idiots, what do you think is going to happen? Our government has turned on us and this country! There should be a trial, and those found guilty of treason should be dealt with in a proper manner.

  11. Marsha Lewandowski on November 27th, 2009 10:49 pm

    Let’s impeach Obama and get rid of Congress…..we need to take direct, specific action to take our country back. Many men, women and children are ready to slip into action. We just need a leader to point the way. We are all ready to do whatever it takes to take over congress. We have stocked up on guns and amo……we are ready. Just give us the word.

  12. tired of the lies on November 30th, 2009 10:10 pm

    yep, there’s those nwo terms, right wing extremist again. People this is the truth . Anybody with a little common sense and an open mind and researches the origin and plan of the UN will find out that the economy collapse and everything that is about to hit the fan is orchestrated by an out of control government that serves the ruling elite and not the fine people of AMERICA, laugh now, but YOU WILL CRY LATER the GREEN MOVEMENT AND THE COPENHAGEN TREATY IS A TROJAN HORSE —- wait and see

    When the dollar is worthless, when inflation is 1000% a day and there are food riots, people won’t need a billboard to know what to do and who is to blame.

  15. Susie Q on March 23rd, 2010 11:31 am

    Thank God that Obama hasn’t taken over the internet yet—but I say YET because he will try to control that too. We must use it to our advantage til he does and get the word out that we need to unite and overthrow this tyrannical group of people—each and every one of them in Congress, in the Cabinet, and in the White House. The next thing they’ll do is hijack the election process so they are guaranteed whatever offices they want. THEY MUST BE STOPPED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am all for war if that’s what it’ll take. Our own leaders are now our enemies—they’re terrorists in every respect.

    Great signs, excellent message. Now to roll up our shirtsleeves. 1776 II

    HELLO MISSOURI! THE STATE I WAS BORN in

    I live in OHIO and heard on Beck’s show today.. he actually interviewed a lady from MISSOURI, unlike any of the “state controlled media”…and the Lady said..
    that her “REPUB Party” had nothing to do with this sign or the
    obamanation sign.

    listen up AMerica.. THE SOCIALIST MARXIST ARE TRYING TO INCITE ‘the AMericans” to get mad and riot….
    Then the traitor in chief can smack down “martial law and take OUR guns.

    be peaceful, we can have civil disobeince without Violence.. UNLIKE>…acORN, SEIU, La rAza, Green jobs, Tides, etc…

    maybe the Right was Right….huh????????

    All of you right-wngers who deny you are right wingers seem to be overlooking one simple fact:

    OBAMA WON THE ELECTION.

    Your side lost,and it lost big time. That means you do not get to make the rules.

    Obama campaigned on health care reform, and the people voted for him. He is simply a politician delivering on his promises. Now, I realize you right wingers are accustomed to electing Republicans who make promises you like and then fail to deliver on those promises, but there really is nothing wrong when a Dem makes a promise and then keeps it.

    Get enough votes, right wingers, and you too can change the laws. Until then, you can just keep on whining.

    The 2nd biggest problem with this commentary is the use of the words “inflammatory”, “treasonous”, “extremist” and “radical”. If it is an opinion piece, then it should say, “in our opinion” but this does not do that. Like most supposed journalism these days, opinion is passed along as fact by use of “adjective as invective” – which is to say that true journalism no longer exists as the majority of the industry is so left leaning that they no longer even pretend otherwise. And the #1 big problem with this report? It simply says in so many words, “my right to free speech is inviolable but yours does not exist” — that is another message of the left.

  20. Mary on March 30th, 2010 4:32 pm

    whovous – I’m curious – what share do you give back? do you work? do you pay taxes? do you have a family? do you have goals? just curious as to why you would tell others who will be losing a lot over this health care bill that they should just stop whining.

    Or, are you part of Obama’s poor? waiting for the next check to come in, pondering what ways you can manipulate the government to receive larger entitlements, anything manipulitive because you “deserve” it. Glad your Dr Utopia won cause karma can be a huge b*tch.

  21. richard mccurdy on June 3rd, 2010 11:08 am

    i liked the comment that said obama was elected so deal with it. i remember when bill clinton was found guilty of purgery, no reason to impeach him though. i also remember when bush “won” the election of 2000. he sure won fair and square didn’t he? i think anyone who is not ready for the revolution is not paying attention. and anyone who says it “is all their fault” is mentally deficient, the republicans and the democrats work together to keep the american people ignorant and divided, while they take corporate donations and sell your country and your rights. want real change? vote third party and prepare for war.
    as benjamin franklin once said “people get the government they deserve.”
    and i know i read a comment about the tree of liberty and how it grows best…

  22. Vince on June 5th, 2010 8:48 pm

    Makes all the sense in the world to me. I’ve had it with both parties and this administration. It’s way past time.

  23. Palehorse on August 5th, 2010 3:16 pm

    Everyone here are talking about revolution but for every one of us who are willing to fight n die for our freedom n for the freedom of this once great nation.. Well for everyone of us thers about 5000 ignorant peaple who are blind to the truth, who are too busy in there everyday life to see wats going on behind the scenes.. “WE” need to open there eyes, show them the towards freedom n liberty!! It should be that hard fellow patriots, its easy to see even feel down deep on our souls that something is wrong n it should be easy to open peoples eyes to the truth n to lead them in the path to freedom!! We can do it if we the people gather our strengths n valor.!! It is not good enough for us to know that the goverment is corrupt if we dont do anything about it!!!!! Spread the word, open the eyes of those around you!
