Tuvia and I were just out walking in Ridgewood, New Jersey yesterday. I had my camera in a new camera bag slung across my shoulder, just breathing and walking and enjoying the weather, in fact, I was wishing that I had left my leather jacket back in the car.
As we got close to the corner where the post office sculpture of a mailman always catches my attention, I noticed that the supporters of] Lydon LaRouche were back with new posters and a new focus of attention. The last time we saw them they were campaigning for Bush’s impeachment, but now, they have moved to Obama.
I pulled out my camera because I wanted to ignore them. Tuvia, took them on. I couldn’t help wondering why a black woman felt it was okay to paint Obama with a Hitler mustache. I know, that’s stereotyping. There was a moment in time when a Jew(Lieberman) was running for VP and I tried to look away from his failings.
I didn’t say anything. I didn’t agree with their thinking when they were here talking against Bush. I was never a Bush supporter, but their arguments were absurd. But now they were going after my guy. I held back and watched other walkers take them on with a brush of their hand. They were with us and that felt good.
On the way back, Tuvia wanted to spend more time with them. I wanted a few more photos. We stopped. Tuvia was smiling. They called us “professionals” no, no, “voyeurs” What? I went crazy! ” You should be ashamed of yourselves. This photo of Obama is an OBAMINATION!
Tuvia grabbed me away as one screamed, John Kennedy is turning over in his grave! I was sick about this image. Good thing I have never been around for a Tea Party protest. I can’t be cool when it comes to politics.
