Idaho Billboard Compares Obama To Colorado Shooting Suspect

It strikes me a strange that the some country that got all pissed off over a comedian cracking a joke about the Colorado shootings seems to be turning a deaf ear to what a few people are calling an “Abhorrent” billboard in Idaho.

The billboard in question, which you can see above, asks why everyone is freaked out when James Holmes kills 12 people in Colorado but the world gives the president the Nobel Peace Price after he “kills thousands with foreign policy”.

The group behind the billboard says it is meant to honor the memory of the late Libertarian thinker Ralph Smeed and is meant to remind the America public of Obama’s promise to bring the troops home from Afghanistan – which this groups says is a promise he has broken.

Personally – I truly believe in your country’s First¬†Amendment but this is absolutely disgusting and it would be regardless of who was president.
