Anti-Trump Nazi-Billboard Artist Reports Death Threats

Tyler Durden's picture

The 'artist' behind a controversial billboard that was recently erected in Phoenix, Karen Fiorito, says that she and her husband are suddenly receiving death threats from residents who are apparently slightly less than amused with Fiorito's provocative form of 'art'.  The massive red billboard, which was commissioned by a Phoenix art gallery, depicts President Trump wearing a Russian flag pin, flanked by mushroom-cloud explosions and dollar signs that resemble Nazi swastikas.

Fiorito celebrated  the launch of the billboard on her twitter account last Friday with the following message:

 

The artist said she knew the piece would be controversial but felt compelled to proceed anyway, saying "a lot of people are feeling this way and I’m just trying to express what I think is on a lot of people’s minds these days."  Per the Arizona Republic:

"Billboards are perfect, because you don't have to go to a gallery to see it," she said. "You're creating a dialogue with the public. You're reaching people you'd never reach with your artwork.

 

"I've been called a communist, a Satan worshiper," she said. "I've been told I'm a 'very, very sick person.' I'm not sure what that means. I haven't been answering the phone. My husband has because he's not afraid to talk to anyone, but he told me he received a couple death threats this morning. ... He said, 'They were coming to get us with their boys.’"

 

"At first I was really excited about doing it, but then you always have this fear, this 'Oh my God, what's going to happen if I do this?' " she said.

 

“Something that really concerned us was this idea of a dictatorship where things were going in a certain direction.”

Trump

 

Fiorito said she wanted to create a symbol of “resistance” with her piece.  "It's more of a form of resistance, a form of protest," she said. "I feel that I'm really just speaking for other people who might not be able to say anything, or speak out, or may not feel safe in doing so. Part of it, the back of it, is a call to unity. It's a call for people who feel like they're in the minority to come together."

Of course, Fiorito, was also the artist behind a similar billboard protesting former President George W. Bush...you know, because there's no such thing as a legitimate Republican President.

Bush Billboard

 

Ironically, while Fiorito is suddenly very concerned about a Trump dictatorship, she didn't seem so concerned when President Obama legislated from the White House via a relentless flow of executive orders, many of which constitutional lawyers felt, at a bare minimum, pushed the limits of the constitutional powers afforded to the President...wonder why?

These people are so full of shit. If they REALLY thought trump was going to be this facist dictator they wouldn't be erecting signs like this. The last person who was ' literally hitler' was actually Hitler and no one did anything like this because they knew that literal hitler would literally kill them. Screaming Hitler at the president is a self-disproving statement. The mere fact that you can do shit like this and post it on the internet proves you nothing but a peddler of mindless hyperbole.

Is anyone else following that Obama fled the country to spend a month in French Polynesia without his family?

 

He is staying at a $2K a night resort owned previously by Marlon Brando 

 

By chance, could it be related to the Lady Michelle drug bust?

Had there been billboards like these of Hillary or Obama, they would probably never have been allowed.

Else, there would have been worse death threats and mayhem.

Death threats my ass.  Prove it.  We all know which side issues those and it's the side she's on.

 

lmfao @ this pathetic cry for attention.

greenskeeper carl's picture

That's all it is. They like to portray themselves as some kind of brave resistance, when they are anything but. They know they have the entire political establishment, the media, as well as the groups who actually do attack people for their beliefs on their side of this issue. They also know trump is no hitler. As I said above, if he was, this shit wouldn't be happening.

What I find ironic is that this is the same person who put up that other billboard about Bush II, which I have no problem with. She puts that up, but was presumably a Hillary supporter. At least when it comes to foreign policy, Hillary is just bush in a pantsuit. So, like with most democrats, it's ok when a (D) lies us into a war, but when a republican does it, the fangs come out. These people are truly pathetic.

See the comments of "rejected" below.

Two billboards of Obama that were forced to come down.

Personally, I don't find it offensive, but at the same time I wouldn't advertise it to the world.

Obviously, Trump strikes fear in the hearts of these people, or why else go to this length.

Mareka's picture

What? No Barry on the "We lied to you for your own good" billboard?

The left needs to stop attacking my commander in chief.
It's sedition.

stacking12321's picture

so, free expression = sedition, then?

maybe look up what the term means before trying to use it.

and if you don't support the first amendment, then perhaps USA is not the country for you, maybe try china or north korea?

effendi's picture

I agree. If a leftist twat wants to put up billboards that some find offensive then that is her right. Don't ZH libertarians suport the notion of not agreeing with what people say but defending their right to say it?

Yea, there would have been arrests if that billboard had reggie buggering barry.

It's be rayciss for a billboard (or anyone else) to claim Soweeto bin Bama murdered several hundred thousands of muslims in the middle east and north africa.

'cause he belongs to the protected Dindu Tribe.

Or, maybe there's some juicy young brown children being held for him down on the island in French Polynesia for him to molest.

Either way, whatever happens down there will make what happened in the movie Deliverance seem rather mundane.

I was rather surprised to see O'Faggot hanging out with Richard Branson a while back since that just outed Branson as another elite homosexual, but he's British so why am I surprised.

Obama's British connections add up.

1). Obama used British GCHQ to circumvent normal channels and as you know GCHQ has full access to NSA for electronic monitoring.
(Judge Napolitano about 4:25 minutes in)

2). Obama's drug boat vessel named Lady Michelle, with 4.2 tons of fast and furious armed Sinaloa Columbian cocaine was busted March 14-16, 2017 in Caribbean area International waters but his boat was registered to the $400 million dollar new airport on the tiny island of St. Vincent -- owned by the British.

http://www.whatdoesitmean.com/index2262.htm

Unbeknownst to Obama, who was in the Virgin islands when Lady Michelle was due in port tried unsuccessfully to call a man named Mohamed Nazim Hoseain.
However, Muslim Brotherhood Mr. Hozeain was unavailable because the boat he was navigating, Lady Michelle, was dead in the water due to a Coast Guard shut down and drug seizure.

After O learned of this, he flew to NYC to see his lawyers, then onto seek favors from Warren Buffet who 40+1 member who could not help due to his condition at age 86. Mr. O then proceeded to Titan tech territory for unknown reasons and then onto Hawaii to influence THAT judge then onto French Polynesia where extradition is not possible and it is a far away from the inquiring FBI

Liberalism is a mental disorder! 

 

“Something that really concerned us was this idea of a dictatorship where things were going in a certain direction.” 

 

I don't get the feeling she's against dictatorship.  Just the "direction" she thinks it's going.

What a great example of hate speech of which the left is so vocal about fighting. Hypocrisy runs deep in the Progressive movement. Leave it up, the first amendment allows it and it will turn off any decent voter, regardless of political affiliation.

it's beyond me why so many jews still vote for democrats

ich1baN's picture

You guys are missing out on a lot, things have changed quickly in the last 8 years... I'm guessing you don't live in South Florida... the overwhelming majority of Jews down here voted for Trump. I live in a building occupied 90% by Jewish heritage and every single one of them voted Trump just to give you a sample... there are 2,000 people in my complex.

Perhaps the Jews in New York are still democrat obsessed but things down south are a different story.

Google Raises Army of 10,000 to Fight for the Jews

While we’ve previously reported that Google was recently pressured to change their algorithms to bury holohoax-denial sites, the malevolent tech giant has manifestly decided to go full out and declare war on the enemies of the Jews.

They have raised a mighty army to swarm us, presumably with the goal of destroying the world of men.

Google will now flag or suppress search results that the (((DEEP STATE))) doesn't want you to know about.

It should be noted that a representative from Google’s new 1984-style internet political dissent suppression program, Jigsaw, will be at the ADL conference as well. Expect nasty things to happen to our 1st Amendment right to criticize Jews following this gathering of high power Jews and NGO collaborators.
