“Quarantine Peters” Street Art Lands in Detroit
Activists in Michigan say Gary Peters has a toxic relationship with Obamacare. They voiced their opinion with guerrilla art on Detroit streets early today near Wayne State University, where Obama is expected to speak tonight.
Highlighting the “Obama Zombie” theme, the art first appeared in the city of Lansing earlier this week, but has now spread to the Eastern side of the state, appearing on electrical boxes and busy bus stops.
No group has taken credit for the prank, but an anonymous source said, ”It was a very small band of conservatives outside of the GOP who decided to take action”. Peters has struggled to overcome his association with Obamacare, and the source said that the plucky activists want to remind voters of that uncomfortable fact.
This type of street art was first seen in Los Angeles, but the phenomenon appears to be spreading as individual conservatives become bolder.
Mysterious L.A.-style art activism popped up in Lansing, Mich. yesterday, raising suspicions that not only do mild-mannered conservatives “get” the culture, but they’re suddenly a little more daring in their activism. I understand that the individuals involved spent less than $50 and a only a few hours of time to achieve this protest against Democrat Gary Peters.
What do Rico-pals think about this? Is it time for Conservatives to get hip with protest art, or should we tone it down? Full disclosure; I was tipped off to the prank, and took photos yesterday. I watched as some nearly apoplectic democrat ripped some of these down.
