Right-Wing Street Artists Target ‘Barack H. Obama Highway’ in Los Angeles (VIDEO)

The artists previously took aim at HBO stars Bill Maher and John Oliver, as well as CNN.

A group of anonymous right-wing street artists called “The Faction” took aim the Barack H. Obama Highway in Los Angeles to raise awareness of the “Obamagate” scandal.

On Tuesday, the Los Angeles-based artists put up a sign on a portion of the 134 freeway that was named after the former president in 2018.

The artists describe themselves as a “rogue right-wing street outfit” that is “100% pro-individualism and meritocracy and 100% anti-identity politics.”

The sign features an image of the former president and reads:

Barry Soetero P.I.

  • Illegal wiretaps
  • Fake dossiers
  • Election Insurance

Speaking to the District Herald, a spokesperson for The Faction said that “in 2018, it became obvious to anyone paying attention that there was no way President Obama wasn’t aware of or hadn’t implicitly encouraged the attempted coup that plagued Trump’s transition into the white house.”

“Clearly not paying attention, California named a section of the 134 freeway after him,” they continued. “In response, we made this sign. That was over a year ago. We’ve been sitting on it until now — until the obvious truth that Obama was involved in a coup attempt could no longer be covered over by show trials and impeachment hoaxes. Though we hold little hope that Obama will ever have to answer for his treasonous acts, we want him to know that we see him.”

Social media users have claimed for some time that a photo of Obama’s student ID card while he was at Columbia University used the name “Barry Soetoro” and had the words “Foreign student” underneath in capital letters. The image of the ID appears to have belonged to another student which was later edited.

Nicknamed “Obamagate,” the scandal over the former president’s involvement in the “Russiagate” hoax has exploded in the past week — after it was revealed that President Obama, in his final days in office, played a key role in the hoax.

“Fully briefed on the ‘Crossfire Hurricane’ investigation, he knew the FBI had come up with nothing despite months of work starting in July 2016,” the New York Post reported. “Yet on Jan. 5, 2017, Obama told top officials who’d be staying on in the new administration to keep the crucial facts from Team Trump.”

To raise awareness of the controversy in the ultra-liberal city, the Faction got to work with their signature brand of street art.

The Faction previously took aim at HBO stars Bill Maher and John Oliver, as well as CNN.

The rebel artists also once plastered stars for President Donald Trump all over the Hollywood Walk of Fame after his real one was vandalized with a sledgehammer.

“Keep it up, ‘Resistors’, we’re going to ride your baby-tantrum tactics all the way to victory in 2020 and beyond,” the Faction said in a statement at the time of their Walk of Fame makeover.

To celebrate Valentine’s Day, the group posted giant signs that read “It’s Okay to Love Trump,” at busy intersections in the city.

To keep up on their actions, you can follow the group on Instagram or Twitter.

WATCH: Los Angeles Democrat Mayor Eric Garcetti Booed HARD At Dodgers Opener

Los Angeles Democrat Mayor Eric Garcetti was massively booed at the Dodgers home opener on Friday afternoon.

Los Angeles Democrat Mayor Eric Garcetti was massively booed at the Dodgers home opener on Friday afternoon.

It was the first game at the stadium in over 18 months.

“For more than a year, we’ve been warned that singing, chanting and yelling is best avoided, for fear of exhaling virus-carrying droplets. On Friday, thousands of fans at Dodger Stadium exhaled loudly, booing Garcetti as if he were Chase Utley in New York,” the Los Angeles Times reported.

Garcetti was at the event to commemorate the Dodgers’ victory in the World Series last fall.

When he was introduced as the team geared up to hoist their championship banner, the crowd did not hold back their massive displeasure with the liberal mayor.

The mayor continued to wave and act normal during the prolonged booing, though his mask made it hard to fully make out his reaction.

Black Lives Matter Co-Founder Buys $1.4 Million Compound in Extremely White California Neighborhood

Black Lives may matter to her, but she apparently does not want to live near them.

Published

Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors has purchased a $1.4 million compound in Topanga Canyon — an area with barely any black people.

The 37-year-old social justice warrior will definitely not have to worry about any of the riots she helps to stoke while tucked away in the ritzy upscale neighborhood.

The racial makeup of Topanga is 7,313 (88.2%) White (84.5% Non-Hispanic White), 117 (1.4%) African American, 35 (0.4%) Native American, 353 (4.3%) Asian, 3 (0.0%) Pacific Islander, 125 (1.5%) from other races, and 343 (4.1%) from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 534 persons (6.4%).

“Kahn-Cullors, a UCLA and USC graduate married about five years ago to social activist (and amateur boxer) Janaya Khan, co-founder of Black Lives Matter Toronto, created the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag in 2013 in response to George Zimmerman’s acquittal in the 2012 shooting of Trayvon Martin,” the Dirt reports. “Since then, the largely decentralized movement has been at the influential forefront on issues of police brutality and racially motivated violence against Black people, particularly in the wake of George Floyd’s killing last summer that sparked massive protests across the United States and around the globe. Kahn-Cullors’ published ‘When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir’ in 2018.”

According to the real estate website The Dirt, the home is a “winding 15 minute drive from The Commons at Calabasas and a slightly longer and somewat less serpentine drive from Malibu’s Getty Villa, the pint-sized compound spans about one-quarter of an acre. The property’s not-quite 2,400 square feet is divided between the a three-bedroom and two-bath main house and a separate one-bed/one-bath apartment capable of hosting guests long term with a private entry and a living room with kitchenette.”

“Interior spaces feature bamboo floors and, in the spacious open-plan living room, dining area and kitchen, vaulted ceilings clad in knotty pine. A whitewashed raised hearth brick fireplace anchors the living room and numerous skylights baths the cavernous space with natural light.”

Black Lives may matter to her, but she apparently does not want to live near them.

MUST WATCH: California Restaurant Owner Blocks Health Inspector’s Car, ‘If We Can’t Work, You Can’t Work’

A GoFundMe campaign to support the restaurant has raised over $20,000.

A heroic California restaurant owner blocked in a Los Angeles County health inspector’s car after he attempted to shut his business down for allowing outdoor dining, asserting that “if we can’t work, you can’t work.”

Carlos Roman, the owner of Bread & Barley in Covina, did not back down even after police arrived.

“He wants to come in here and say that no one can work, so he can’t work either,” Roman told the officer. “He decided to come today and take photos of the people outside and say that he was going to fine us,” he explained.

Roman refused to move his truck, telling the officer to go ahead and get her supervisor.

“This is what happens when people get desperate. I’m desperate. Who is going to pay her car payment? Who is going to pay my cook’s rent?” Roman asked the officer. “I want it to be hard on everyone. I want everyone to see how hard this sh-t is.”

The outraged owner demanded to know if the inspector and the officer got paychecks last week, asserting that his employees haven’t.

“You’re just doing your job right, we’re all in this together?” Roman asked the inspector. “When I go to the bank, can I tell the bank the health department said it’s ok and that I don’t have to pay you?”

“What do I tell my employees?” Roman shouted.

Roman is now facing two $500 fines for failure to comply and interfering with the health officer.

A GoFundMe campaign to support the restaurant has raised over $20,000.
