Firefighter's Anti Obama Stickers Banned

There is a saying I use with my kids when I tell them to do something. "Just be glad you live in America, where you're free to do whatever I want." I used to think it was my private family joke. Apparently, the Hartford , Connecticut Fire Department takes it all too seriously.

Mike DiGiacomo is a Hartford fire fighter. He doesn't think too highly of President Obama, and has a few bumper stickers on his SUV to remove any doubt.

Some of the bumper stickers read as follows.

Somewhere in Kenya, a village is missing its idiot

Ill keep my guns, freedom and money. You keep the change

Obama Bin Lyin. Impeach Now

It seems that his supervisor has told Di Giacomo that because of his bumper stickers, he can no longer park in the firehouse. He was told by his supervisor according to Harford's Channel 3 Eyewitness News that corporation counsel, the union and the city were all in agreement about his bumper stickers. When he contacted the union, they denied any such understanding.DiGiacomo says he does indeed intend to file a grievance with his union. There was no "hate speech" on the bumper stickers, but legitimate political satire. During the Bush administration, there was a bumper sticker that said "Somewhere in Texas, a village is missing its idiot." Now the Democrats are getting a dose of their own medicine. Meanwhile, every day that DiGiacomo parks on the street is a day that he spreads his message to appreciative passers by.

There are a lot more anti Obama bumper stickers out there if Di Giacomo wants to be creative, such as the following.

"Imagine having B.O. for 4 years"

"Change. It's what you'll have left in your pockets".

Finally ! We have a face to put on the food stamp.

Then there is a Jefferson quote. "The democracy will cease to exist when you take from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not."

Then there are sarcastic slogans under an Obama logo.

"Because everyone deserves what you worked hard for."

"Honk if I'm paying your mortgage".

"Don't blame me, I voted for the American".

"O.B.A .M.A. "One Big A$$ Mistake America"

"Run A country into the ground? Yes he can!"


I could go on and on. I think we will be seeing a lot more anti Obama bumper stickers, even in places like Missouri, where the infamous "truth squads", composed of people in law enforcement used to call people up, identify themselves as law enforcement and defend Obama.

I found a very funny "Truth Squad Incident Report on the Director Blue site. For those who have forgotten, here is the link.


It is downright sinister how Obama's supporters are so eager to muzzle free speech. Mike DiGiacomo is fighting back. How many more are backing down? It is critical, now more than ever to raise our voices for the freedoms that define our way of life. This is not the kind of change America needs.
