“Go to Hell Barack” Ad Greets Commuters at Washington DC Metro Station

(Raw Story)
A new DC Metro ad criticizing nationalized health care telling Barack Obama to “go to hell” has liberals upset in Washington.
The AFP reported:

In the heat of a US presidential election year, with Americans immune to the polarized and bitter nature of political discourse, it takes a lot to shock them, especially in Washington.

But one ad at a DC Metro station — which starts off criticizing Obama’s health care reforms and ends up telling the president to “go to hell” — goes beyond the pale, says Jim Moran, a Democratic congressman from Virginia.

The advertisement is for “Sick and Sicker: When the Government Becomes Your Doctor,” a documentary that interviews Canadian doctors and patients in the hope of showing how dangerous “Obamacare” is for the American people.

“Barack Obama wants politicians and bureaucrats to control America’s entire medical system. Go to hell Barack,” the ad says.

Moran wrote a letter to Metro general manager Richard Sarles calling for the removal of the advertisement.

“The ad is deeply disrespectful of the President of the United States and does not belong in the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) network,” he wrote.

It turns out that such language is within the accepted limits of American law and such advertisements are protected under the First Amendment of the US constitution, guaranteeing free speech.

“WMATA advertising has been ruled by the courts as a public forum protected by the First Amendment of the Constitution, and we may not decline ads based on their political content,” the Metro authority said in a written statement.

    Aww, poor babies. They got their diapers all soggy when someone actually said correct things about The One.

    We should give them thier wubbies and put them to bed.

    Finally. We are using their Rules for Radicals against them.

    This is unbecoming not matter which side does it.

  • jorgen

    Why shouldn’t he go to Hell? That’s where he came from.

  • Bitter Clinger

    @lady mondegree: Do you think Obama cares about YOUR delicate sensibiities? This is a guy who pushed an INFANTICIDE bill in the IL Senate. He does not deserve the respect of the country. He deserves its scorn.

  • Jenny

    I like it and we need more ads like this to wake people up.

    Okay, I’m going to say it: At last, TRUTH in Advertising!

  • 1RedBeard

    I fully agree with the sentiment, but not the venue. Being legally protected speech does not necessarily make it the right thing to do.

    But while we’re at it, let’s mention that Jim Moran is deserving of less respect than the sign showed to Obama. In case anyone doubts the vile nature of Moran, here is a video reminder:

    #3 Ohio Granny: My thoughts exactly! An example of how we now have to fight the Left, namely “We are all Andrew Breitbart.”

    Yeah, all sides are equal, right? Republicans may have outrageous and pusillanimous RINOs in their ranks, but the Dems have the commie/progressive market cornered. Criticizing a commie rat b*stard is always fair game, no matter the tenor or tone of that criticism — they’re COMMUNISTS! Or with Sir Golfsalot, that would be fairway game.

    Time to fight fire with fire. This communist cretin is going to pull all the stops to stay in power. This is one way you have to fight communists. We all know the other way, but hope that it does not come to that.

    Senate=block legislation
    MSM= block information

    Things are going to get worse before they get better and it is only March. Look at the way they behave and tell me me that this is not a coup. Time for resolve and stiff upper lip.

  • Speech Police

    When the government is uncivil and works violently against the will of the people, it should not expect civility and happy messages in our discourse. Nor should the house slaves who enabled this tyranny.

    We need to remember that we must pressure, expose, out, mock and scorn the enablers in society. People like Mr. Moron are parasites feasting upon each of us and making our families unwell, depriving our children of their chance in the world. What’s this loser’s scoop? Why does he suck off of us and then get angry when we protest?

    I’ll bet there’s a mountain of monsters in this repugnant jerk’s closet.

  • hermie

    Why must conservatives ‘tone down’ their messages because some liberal is ‘offended’? Strange, since liberals always crank it up whenever conservatives are offended by messages that are far more vile and threatening than a ‘Go to hell’ is.

    I’m sick of having to ‘be respectful’ and to foster ‘comity’ when it comes to fighting for our beliefs. Where did that get us? With a POTUS who sneers ‘I won’ when there is any kind of dissent regarding his policies and actions.

  • JoyO

    If my memory serves me correctly, Moran was one of the Congressmen who got taped at a Town Hall Meeting in 2010 questioning what the Constitution had to do with what Congress was doing in regards to Obamacare. He is a Progressive. Progressives don’t care about our Constitution — all they care about is the good of the collective (as long as that “good” enhances the Government’s power)!

  • bobdog

    And yet liberals would be just fine with a billboard celebrating the death of Andrew Breitbart, or a feature length movie slandering Sarah Palin, or a television special about the many contributions to democracy by Julian Assange, or a political ad cheering OWS, or a flat out lie poster about the many virtues of teachers’ unions.

    Those would be just fine. Mainstream.

    Yeah, President McCain said the same thing…uh, wait…

    Hmmm…Did Congressman Moran complain like this when G.W. Bush was the target of these kinds of adds? How about “Fahrenheit 911”? Was IT disrespectful of the President? Hey, it was a major motion picture, complete with posters, advertising, hype…

    They can dish it out but they can’t take it…

  • mamagriz68

    We all know they can dish it out, but they can’t take it. We all need to be Breitbart now.

  • myohmy

    Liberal elites have such a thin skins. They believe that they are preordained to run this country, behh.
