Obama Campaign Adopts Font Used In Cuban Propaganda Posters

It’s not just the font. Look at the imagery in some of it.
Specifically, look at the work of Shepard Fairey. It looks like it was created by the Soviets themselves.
Now these are the real Communist ones:
They should have used it much earlier. It’s cool to Illegals and Latinos.
Also pay attention to the symbols contained within the images themselves.
The clenched fist is used by all far-left groups. Variations include two hands shaking, a fist clenching a rose, and a fist clenching a gun (usually an AK). Something you might notice about far-left imagery is the frequency of the word ‘PEACE’ used along side a rifle.
(Certain Aryan and White Supremacist groups also sometimes use the clenched fist.)
Rays of light emanating from a central character, Mao Tse Tung comes to mind most often, were used by Communists and Nazi’s to project the greatness of their leaders.
Variation of gears and fists are common among branches of the AFL-CIO. Taken from the Nazi-era German government approved labor unions??
The black cat symbol is an Anarchist symbol. So is the upper case ‘A’. The black flag and the black rose are others used by Anarchists.
This is one that i found particularly shocking.
United Farm Workers Flag:
Third Reich (Nazi) Service Flag:
*The Nazi symbol above is actually the corner of a German Navy flag show here:
Big surprise coming from losers who giddily hang Mao ornies on the WH Christmas tree.
All this shit was stolen and plagiarized from USSR and East German propaganda posters. What do you expect from an asshole who plagiaraizes speeches as well?
So what? Those fonts and images work. You don’t think Mitt and the Republicans have teams of graphic designers brainstorming the best logo and color scheme?
Last election was a very well designed Obama O with the sweeping, exciting red stripes, perfect for pins, bumper stickers and all other merch you can think of versus McCain’s god awful boring blue and yellow logo with militaristic looking star. It’s no wonder McCain didn’t draw in people.
It might be effective at energizing the left wing base but the source of inspiration is inimical to American values and is very disturbing to those of us in the know. If the Romney Campaign’s team started using the gothic font and swastika favored by Nazi propagandists would you still say “so what”?
