LaRouche supporters display poster of Obama with Hitler mustache

Lyndon LaRouche supporters set up a table outside the Arlington Courthouse post office for four midday hours Wednesday with an adulterated poster of President Barack Obama wearing a Hitler mustache.

“I was so offended that someone would do this on the Day of Atonement,” the holiest day of the Jewish religious calendar, said neighborhood resident Joyce Turner.

Nicole James, one of the volunteers for the perennial presidential candidate , was unrepentant about the display on Yom Kippur. “We go out every single day. We don’t discriminate over holidays,” she said.

Passersby mostly shrugged or shook their heads.

Nicole Gonzalez-Knowlton, pushing a baby stroller down the street, said she saw them but ignored them.

“I’ve seen worse but I worked in politics,” she said. “Freedom of speech, you know?”
