Parody movie posters have been placed around the city of Los Angeles titled, “Saving Barack Obama.” The posters are a spoof of the Steven Spielberg movie “Saving Private Ryan.” The posters feature the President standing on a horizon with a pair of teleprompters. The posters say “A Steven Spielberg Ploy,” and their taglines read, “The mission is a fraud.”
The artwork is part of a campaign by street artists who are against Obama. It has been placed in cities around the nation. Some images mock Obama’s golfing habit with a headline of “subpar” and a picture of Obama on the golf course. The President arrived in Los Angeles yesterday to receive an award from Steven Spielberg himself at USC’ Shoah Foundation. The Shoah Foundation is a museum dedicated to the Holocaust; it was started by Spielberg after he made “Schindler’s List.”
The award Obama was presented with is called the Ambassador for Humanity award. Spielberg wanted to honor his “global efforts to protect human rights, his commitment to education and expanding educational technology, and his work advancing opportunities for all people.”
“President Obama’s commitment to democracy and human rights has long been felt,” Spielberg further says. Obama also attended a fundraiser at the home of Alan Horn, the chairman of Walt Disney Studios. Tickets for the Democratic fundraiser were priced at $32,000 a person.
The street artists have changed their loyalty sharply from 2008 and 2012, when most of them supported Obama.
What do you think of the posters?
