Gainesville, TX – A highway billboard in North Texas makes a connection between the Navy Seals raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound and voting against President Barack Obama in the November general election.
Next to a depiction of two Navy seals in camouflage, the billboard on I-35 reads, “The Seals removed one threat to America … Remove the other in November.”
A similar add popped up in Indiana recently but contained the additional clarifying wording that “it’s up to the voters to remove the other in November.”
Local businessman Tom Schad, a previously apolitical Air Force veteran, paid for the political ad, which evidently was based on an email image that he received. Schad commissioned an advertising agency to do the design work, and he then leased the space from the billboard company.
The soft-spoken Schad told the local CBS affiliate that “I think we were just trying to make a statement. We felt we needed to change direction in the country, and that’s what we did.” Schad added that he hasn’t received one complaint about the anti-Obama Texas billboard content to date. “Other than the fact it’s got some SEALS in there with a gun … I think it’s pretty obvious what they did and what the statement is.”
Separately, as The Inquisitr has previously reported, a group of SEALS and intelligence officers criticize President Obama in a new documentary for taking too much credit in the raid that resulted in the killing of Osama bin Laden. “The work that the American military has done killed Osama bin Laden. You did not,” Navy SEAL Ben Smith says in Dishonorable Disclosures.
Many feel that, despite claims of “not spiking the football” after the bin Laden raid, the Obama administration has done just that.
