Where to Find Peter Boyles’ “Birther” Billboard


“BARACK OBAMA KIDS AND HITLER YOUTH SING FOR THEIR LEADER.” That’s the headline over this video of children honoring President Barack Obama. It was cross-posted on 630-KHOW talk-show host Peter Boyles’ Web page and intends to send the message, apparently, that some people in the nation think Obama is evil incarnate.

Maybe he shouldn’t even be president? A billboard at I-70 and Kipling Street, for which Boyles successfully agitated, asks, “Where’s the birth certificate?” (via The Colorado Independent). The billboard space was provided by used-car lot owner Phil Wolf, who would like to use his signage in Montana and Wyoming for the same purpose, according to World Net Daily, whose founder launched the birther-billboard campaign.


Meanwhile, the fundamentalist Christian Web site perpetuates the conspiracy theory in a 28-minute infomercial that questions where Obama was born. At least one CBS affiliate—in Lubbock, Texas—has run the video, according to CBS News.
