Shepard
Fairey's widely acclaimed "Hope" poster in support of Barack Obama's
2008 presidential campaign has gained him international renown, but an
apparent misunderstanding recently caused Danish leftists to view him as
a pro-government propagandist.  Now Fairey and a colleague are
recovering from a beating by two men who accosted him outside a
Copenhagen nightclub last Saturday, accused him of being an "Obama
illuminati," and told him to "go back to America."

How would they have known who the hell he was unless he was going around passing shit out and offering autographs for his douchebag name or blabbing his stupid mouth to everybody?

A strange aside. I have this print from him that I bought around 2001. Probably should bust it out and sell it. No idea what it is worth.

You guys are so uncaring! Where is the compassion? Geez....

I mean really, those guys could have hurt their fists, gotten dirty or worst yet...they had to touch a liberal!

I find it hilarious that Obama campaigned heavily on a platform of international diplomacy.

People who go around accusing liberals of being "illuminati" tend not to be "leftists" they tend to be the Alex jones types of followers.
Guess what? They also hate the gubbmint and tend to be paranoid, that doesn't make them leftists.
