In a short 6 1/2 years, President Barack Obama has managed to turn America on its head in more ways than one.
The most recent example of this is, with the controversial nuclear deal negotiated with Iran soon to be in place, the Obama administration will count among its allies the Persian Gulf country renown for being the world’s leading sponsor of terrorism.
An irony that is not lost on the Center for Security Policy, a group behind a new poster series, “Visit Iran: America’s Newest Ally.”
The posters are part of a project called Iran Truth, and will be on display on a large billboard truck in Washington at a protest Wednesday against the controversial nuclear deal, the Washington Free Beacon reported. Among those expected to attend the event are Republican presidential contenders Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, as well as conservative firebrand Glenn Beck.
Emulating vintage mid-20th century travel posters, the advertisements highlight Iran’s position against women, homosexuals, and political prisoners — all while inviting Americans to visit their “newest ally.”
One such poster will invite visitors to “engage in a public stoning.”
Another poster will highlight “Tehran’s vibrant gay scene” — amid hanging corpses.
“For the last decade, Iran was isolated, as everyone agreed that its rhetoric and behavior was dangerous, and beyond the pale for civilized nations,” said Iran Truth director David Reaboi. “Obama’s deal unravels the conscience of the world.”
“For this series, we wanted to remind Americans of what they’re getting with a deal with the Islamic Republic of Iran that strengthens the theocratic regime in Tehran,” he added.
“Political prisoners hang-out at Evin Prison,” reads another street poster, in reference to the notorious Iranian prison:
