Obama Banner Drops (stp)
MN Anarchists leave love notes for Obama?!
Obama Is Hot, Empire is Not!
On Thursday June 4th Barack Obama visited Saint Paul Minnesota to deliver a message to the people. While this was going on, Anarchists were delivering a message of their own. An action group calling themselves "Obama is hot, empire is not" released the following letter:
Embarrassing though it is, we have to admit that we have a crush on you.
Alas, our love for you is bitter-sweet! While your speeches and charisma
are enough to make anyone swoon, your winning smile just isn't enough to
cover up the wrongs of the oppressive and tyrannical "democracy" that you
seek to rule. Though it's sad to say it, you are just another pretty face
that the two party system uses to sell their lies.
Empire is empire, no matter who the emperor is. Any system that lets one
person swindle, manipulate, murder, commodify, and subjugate the beings of
our earth, is not going to change because we give that power to another
single person. Even if that person is a major hottie.
We left some love notes (banners) for you around town while you were
We love you Barack, we really do! …but it's just not enough. It's not
that you're Democrat, infact, we would feel the same if you were
Republican. Visiting St. Paul was a nice gesture, but we just wouldn't
respect ourselves if we said "Yes". We would say you might have a better
shot when you visit Denver, but from what we hear the folks there feel the
same way we do.
With forbidden passion,
The Anarchist Action Group:
