View Full Version : Obama Becoming Icon of Fear?

In the small town of Pearsall, Texas (just South of San Antonio) a few concerned members of the community have started a community watch program using Obama's face as a symbol power and fear. Using a bold propaganda-style design, they pair these posters with old police surveillance cameras in attempt to bring order to the community and reduce the rate of street violence and drug distribution. By implying that "Obama" is watching people through these cameras, they are associating their actions to control crime with Obama. They have made multiple citizens arrests and given police leads to local small time drug distributors. I posted this on another thread, but I feel like it deserves its own. It's an controversial idea to associate our country's leader's face with the actions of a small group and imply his individual omnipotence.
