Auto Dealer Billboard: Blames Turbaned Obama ‘Jihad’ for Ft Hood Shooting

November 21, 2009

(ChattahBox)—Phil Wolf, owner of a car dealership in Wheat Ridge, Colorado says, he is not happy with President Obama’s policies. So, what does he do? He is using a giant billboard sign, normally reserved to advertise his pre-owned cars selling for under $5,000, to display his xenophobia and anti-Obama birther conspiracies far and wide. Wolf put up an offensive and divisive sign earlier this week connecting President Obama to the tragic mass murders at Fort Hood using racist and bigoted imagery, invoking harmful stereotypes about Muslims.

The billboard reads: “President or Jihad?” with the warning, “Wake up America! Remember Ft. Hood” The center of the billboard is filled with the words, “Birth Certificate,” with the words, “Prove it” directly below. And the cartoonish imagery used is even more egregious; hearkening back to the racist Sambo cartoons. The top of the billboard contains two black caricatures of Obama, one wearing a suit and tie with enlarged ears, and the other depicting Obama as a turban-wearing terrorist.

The first sign didn’t contain the words, birth certificate, but Wolf later added it, apparently not satisfied with just xenophobia and racial-stereotyping. Why not throw in a discredited conspiracy theory, which further serves to de-legitimize our President, for good measure, right?

Certainly, the hate and vitriol espoused by the likes of Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and others, attacking Obama as a Nazi, Fascist, Marxist and Socialist has emboldened the tea party movement and people, like Phil Wolf to vocalize their hate and anger in ways our country has not seen, since the growth of the violent militia movement in the 1990s, which culminated in the Oklahoma City bombing.

Why did Phil Wolf put such an offensive sign in front of his business, linking the President of the United States to terrorism and a despicable act of mass murder?

Chattahbox spoke by telephone, to Mr. Wolf on Saturday at his car dealership, as he was busy fielding calls from other media outlets. He made it clear that he was angered by what he calls Obama’s “politically correct” response to American-born Muslim Nidal Malik Hasan’s mass murder of 13 people at Fort Hood.

Wolf believes Muslims are anti-American and have no place in our military. When asked what response he expected from the President? He answered, “The shooting was an act of war. And Obama did not treat it like that” Obama needs to “clean house in no uncertain terms,” Wolf said. ‘We know these people hate Americans,” he added.

Wolf apparently wants President Obama to declare war on all Muslims, because they have shown that they hate us, according to the Colorado car dealer.

When asked if Obama’s race had anything to do with his dislike of the President, Wolf answered “no,” and claimed that writing in Alan Keyes’ name for president proves he is not a racist. Also he said, he is married to an Hispanic woman.

This is not the first time Wolf drew attention for his controversial billboards. Earlier in the year, he teamed up with World Net Daily; the fevered swamp of fringe right-wing conspiracy theories and Denver, hate-talk radio host Peter Boyles to promote the birther conspiracy that Obama is not a natural born citizen. The billboard read, “Where’s the Birth Certificate?”

Wolf has denied that his latest anti-Obama sign is connected with World Net Daily saying, it was his own idea.

Bobby Clark of ProgressNow Colorado has launched a campaign to boycott Wolf’s businesses. Clark said, “birthers” and “teabaggers” like Wolf have been emboldened by mainstream Republican politicians and pundits.

Meanwhile, Wolf is happy to spew his offensive hate and bigotry to anyone who would listen and he is reveling in all of the attention he is receiving.

    The idiots on the right who can’t let go of this birth certificate nonsense are a lot like the idiots on the left who kept chanting “Bush STOLE the election!!” years after the question had become irrelevant. Wolf is correct to question the dishonest, politically correct atmosphere that allowed the Ft. Hood shooter to remain in his job even when it was clear that that particular Muslim did hate the U.S. But this policy was as much a product of the Bush administration as the current one. Also, he should recognize that even though the writings of all three major western/middle-eastern religions were written by savages (even the new testament doesn’t question slavery), there are some Muslims who reject the more hateful teachings of their faith. Likewise, there are some Christians who, unsatisfied with the relative compassion of the new testament, revert to the writings old testament to justified their bigotries and hatred. Some of these people hate the U.S. as much as the Jihadists.

    THE PRESIDENTIAL EXECUTIVE ORDER SEALING PRESIDENT OBAMA’S PERSONAL RECORDS IS LISTED AT THE WHITEHOUSE.GOV WITHOUT THE ENTIRE TEXT OF THE DOCUMENT, AND YOU CAN FIND THE ENTIRE TEXT AT
    FEDERAL REGISTER/Vol. 74, No.c 15/Monday, January 26, 2009/Presidential documents
    With the President’s handwritten signature and
    this text: [FR Doc. E9-712 Filed 1-23-09; 8:45 am] Billing code 3195-W9-P
    which proves that the taxpayers were billed for the attorneys fees and paralegal research
    costs and secretarial fees and all costs for advising the President to conceal his
    personal records from the public.
    The text of the document includes,
    Section 1.
    (g) A “substantial question of executive privilege” exists if NARA’s disclosure of
    Presidential records might impair national security (including the conduct of foreign
    Relations), law enforcement, or the deliberative processes of the executive branch.

    Well, of course national security would be impaired if we knew that President Obama is
    Not a natural born citizen and if he was born in Kenya or in Indonesia, then other
    countries would be jealous of those countries because they would expect they were
    receiving special treatment.
    Law enforcement would be impaired from stopping illegal aliens from entering our
    Country if President Obama is not a natural born citizen, and in fact, may not be
    legally a citizen, so illegal aliens would go wild crashing our borders.
    Of course the “deliberative processes of the executive branch” would be impaired
    because President Obama would be having none, he’d be on trial for fraud in a fiduciary
    capacity.

    Hey, Phil Wolf, I’m going to need the original of your birth certificate before I’ll accept that you’re a native-born American citizen, and not a Red Chinese agitator sent to the USA to disrupt our national interests.

    See, the options are: (a) You’re a foreign spy, or (b) you’re a traitor to America.

    LEARN HOW TO PREVENT FUTURE NIDAL HASANS

    The dilemma caused by the shooting at Fort Hood by Major Hasan exemplifies how each of our programs have failed us. When supervisors, counselors and task forces members rely on subjective references of culture and mental illness, observers miss the signs specific to aggression referenced in post analysis. When observers focus specifically on aggressive behavior, the objective and culturally neutral signs of “aggression” standout, providing the opportunity to prevent these violent encounters.

    Major Hasan was under surveillance by two Terrorist Task Forces, one with Department of Defense oversight and the other with FBI oversight. So why wasn’t he stopped?

    The use of subjective/qualitative indicators, prone to stereotype individuals by culture or religion; versus quantitative indicators and the use of mental health references know to mislead and misconstrue, fails us repeatedly in our attempts to prevent acts of violence. Only when we use the specificity of “aggression” and its objective, culturally neutral indicators can we get-out-in-front of these acts of aggression and prevent them. Why are current systems uses on campus failing us?

    The answer is quite simple – The military does not have an objective and culturally neutral system that collects information and evaluates it to determine the degree (or level) of aggression an individual is displaying, nor has it people who have a clear responsibility to observe and report this information.

    Old man, the red aggitator is already in the White House. Wolf is not in control of anybodies life or fate. Shoe, foot, other…

    Xenophobia? No.

    I think the message is a bit crude, but I sympathize with the man’s concerns.

    Jihad, not terrorism is the national security issue at the moment, and Obama “outlaws” the word.

    270-420 million people have been murdered in Jihad in less than 1,300 years. Christianity has murdered around 30-50 million since the time of Christ. – Keep in mind the Romans were already a vicious people before they were Christian.

    There is no reason for peaceful Muslims to be offended that the west wants to remove Jihadists from destroying our world. They should offer these evil men to us on platters, not worry about “backlash”. Our average American is not likely to harm a Muslims over the Fort Hood tragedy. – Already we have more threats coming from other Jihadists in Georgia… and man worldwide supports… only the Hamas funded CAIR organization “denounces” the massacre, and adds, “its sad we Muslims have to immediately denounce this in todays bigoted world.” – as if THEY are somehow also victims?!?

    Much love to all the Peaceful Muslims out there. <3

    “Political Correctness” has just as much blame as Jihad in the Fort Hood massacre.

    “many worldwide supporters” (typo sorry)

    Search out “Officer and a Gentleman” + “Nidal Hasan” to see AMERICANS cheering this Jihadist. I am sure its on youtube.com . Its terrible.

    PCL, you are the idiot. Obama has never shown his birth certificate, what is he hiding? Just because the birth certificate doesn’t matter to you, doesn’t mean it should be ignored.

    Here’s a thought–blame Dubya for EIGHT YEARS of inaction on scrapping ‘hire-a-muslim’ (even if he’s a business card-carrying jihadi) affirmative action policies and the Army’s ‘diversity police’ (who did NOTHING to remove Hasan as a security risk, for fear of harming ‘diversity’ in the forces), or–here’s a thought!–allowing SOMEBODY (soldiers, MP officers) to carry GUNS on military bases, instead of having to summon CIVILIAN cops. Or, maybe, blame the ‘hug-a-turbaned-jihadi’ policies of Ronald ‘dementia’ Reagan (i.e., funding the Mujaheddin-cum-Taliban). Nah, it’s the New Guy’s fault.

    One can be VERY critical of some of the things Obama’s done, vis-a-vis the Islamic problem (e.g., bowing to Abdullah), but blaming him for the Fort Hood tragedy is too much. Here’s an example of the extent to which some idiots will go to shift the blame:

    Wake up America! The Muslims have SWORN, as a result of their Muslim beliefs to eradicate the infidels.That is us! They are positioning themselves right now. It is already happening, and close to fruition. There are enough of them “hiding in sheep’s clothing” right here in America now. Somehow, against all unbelievable odds, they have managed to elect themselves a MUSLIM PRESIDENT IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!!! Why have we allowed the fox to take quarter in the hen house? This political correctness will be our demise! Have we lost our minds along with our patriotism? If so, we are sure to lose our country and, YES, our freedoms as well. It is already too late to stop it. The only thing left is to prepare for the ultimate fight for your hard-won lands and freedoms that is destined to come. Good luck America. Our fate is in our hands again as never before. I only hope that we recognize the urgency of this endeavor before it is too late.

    If this man profits by this kind of inflamatory hate speech then this is not my America. I hope this man learns that God is inside his heart and soul and if he thinks defaming someone with this kind of billboard is something Jesus would condone then he is in for a rude awakening on judgement day.

    The man behind the sign is either an idiot, crazy or a racist (maybe all three). We won the election and now these sore losers will continue to spew their hate with lies. They remind me of the Birthers losers, who even “Fake News” Bill O’Reilly has smacked down like the true flies they are.
