Eric Lach/TPM~Achieving an unlikely harmony between old and new media, an anonymous group of Atlanta business owners is using a website to crowdsource the funding of an anti-Obama billboard campaign.
The group — Billboards Against Obama — was formed several weeks ago, and has already put up several billboards in the Atlanta metro area, according to local news reports.
While the group plans to remain anonymous, they have asked life coach, motivational speaker, and New York Times bestselling author Tommy Newberry to act as their spokesman. Newberry told TPM that the group was united by a common frustration against Obama and a desire to do something with that feeling.
But why billboards?
“Where are the people? They’re out driving around,” Newberry told TPM in an interview.
On the group’s website, people can contribute money, sponsor new billboards, and even contribute new billboard designs. “Be seen — be heard — before it’s too late!” the site reads. “There is a war going on…a war for the future of America!”
