I saw this sign yesterday on my way home and took a picture of it this morning (it's at the corner of Vickers and University in Durham, NC):
Is it serious? Or a parody of our ridiculous political debate? You be the judge.
Update: Hey Tapped folks! Hope you'll check out the rest of the site...
Update 2: My wife heard a local reporter asking people about this - apparently there's a backstory involving a guy putting up about thirty of these signs. This appears to be his website, which contains the following insightful commentary along with a lot more pictures of these signs:
Communists in Durham, NC have been stealing Bush political signs and then vandalizing other signs for mentioning it. These photos are time stamped and were taken 10/27/2004 mostly in the Forest Hills area of Durham, NC.
While there are a lot of good people in the Forest Hills community, the Forest Hills Neighborhood Association, for example, is dominated by fiercely anti-American types and anyone who speaks against communism, socialism, immorality etc. are banned from the Forest Hills Neighborhood Assn. email list. I am not sure if those running that list are that way or simply don't have the guts to stand up for what is right.
Here are some photographic examples of "free speech" Democrat / Communist style that we enjoy in the Forest Hills area of Durham, NC.
You can guess why he might have been banned from the neighborhood association email list.
And in news from agitprop central, World Magazine's voter fraud blog has already linked to my post with the tagline "Commies intimidate voters in North Carolina." Once again, you can't make this shit up. [Correction: World Magazine's voter fraud blog linked to this post under a humor category, so I guess they meant it as a joke, though it wasn't immediately obvious from context. Apologies.]
Disclaimer: Stealing or vandalizing signs is always wrong, but if it did happen here in Durham, I tend to doubt that Communists were the perpetrators.
Update 3: Here's the latest update on the Durham sign wars - this guy is getting some competition...
Update 4: The Durham Herald-Sun has now issued a report on the controversy...
