Livingston protesters put Hitler mustache on president
DENHAM SPRINGS - There was a discussion about pushing the limits here, after pictures of President Barack Obama with a Hitler mustache showed up along a road Tuesday.
The LaRouche PAC, a political activist group, posted the photos in front of the Denham Springs post office.
"He's earned his mustache," member Ian Overton said. "It's not a gas chamber, but it's an economic policy. If you're dead, you're dead."
Overton believes President Obama's policies kill Americans. His group also says the White House Administration along with Wall Street and the Republican Party pushed for the government shutdown.
The shutdown is a distraction from Syria and for banks to seize their customer's money, Overton said.
"The shut down is a distraction. It's a very dangerous distraction. But the real issue is removing this president. Stopping the bailouts and launching a real agro-industrial recovery," Overton said.
The group spent most of the afternoon getting others to join and donate in an effort to impeach the president.
"Yea absolutely because I don't stand for anything that the democratic party is doing right now," supporter Steve Tassin said.
"There is a lot of welfare and entitlement programs that are being exploited," supporter Logan Craig said.
But even supporters did not always agree with the mustache.
"I'd say that's a little extreme," Tassin said. "I wouldn't go that far."
"Not necessarily mature," Craig said.
"I feel sorry for them that they don't inform themselves more," Steve Coppock said. He was disgusted by the photos and the LaRouche PAC's agenda.
"To try to pin the label of Nazi on Obama is just ridiculous," Coppock said. "This is the same mentality that burnt crosses and wore white hoods."
