I know you shouldn’t joke with nazi symbolism, however when used to make a political statement I think we can largely agree that many of Trump’s moves appear to mirror the earlier days of the Furor himself….. Blame games, religious discrimination, diversion tactics…. It’s really not looking good.
So, someone has let our their anger and disapproval in the form of a giant billboard, showing a stylised nazi-esque feel with nuclear plumes and Trump looking a bit evil!
People’s reactions have varied including some thinking it’s the best thing ever and others being incredibly upset!
The Grio (src) reported some of the local reviews:
“I think this is the greatest thing that I’ve seen in a long time,” said Mike Bolenbach. “I think everything Donald Trump is doing is destroying America from the inside.”
“Take it to your house!” said Jeff Whiteman. “I live right here, I have to wake up to this every day. Disrespectful.”
“There’s a lot of tension right now in the air, and I’m trying to express that for a lot of people who feel they don’t have a voice right now,” Fiorito said before going on that in the end this comes down to Freedom of Speech.
“I do feel like we are headed down a road of destruction,” said Fiorito. “So, that’s my expression and I think I have the right to say that, and they do believe me.”
The giant image, which has Unity spelled in sign language on the backside, can be seen at 1000 block of Grand Avenue. It was designed by female artist Karen Fiorito.
“I got the opportunity to have a platform to say something, and I took that opportunity, and I take full responsibility for it,”
The Limited Liability Corporation, an organization in Phoenix that supports the arts, is said to have given her this platform.
