For those of us who have been paying attention to the seemingly endless number of spears in Obama’s side (all rendered benign by our media and by many American citizens willing to digest their daily dose of Statist rhetoric) the fallowing revelation will not surprise.
Obama’s guilt by collaboration (not association) with Bill Ayers (Communist Anti-American domestic terrorist with the Weather Underground), may run even deeper than what those of us who are blinded by reality originally thought.
For those of you who have mentally de-clawed Obama’s anti-American goals and passions, this may cause your cognitive-dissidence to swell.
Zomblog displays the first issue of Osawatomie, a newspaper published by the Weather Underground in 1975. The paper’s content can be viewed on their site.
Zomblog shows the circular WU logo (displayed on the the newspaper’s cover) with the O logo.
I Own the World shows a comparison of the WU Weather Eye Logo and the O logo.
Upon viewing the comparisons, I immediately noticed something that even these great websites have not picked up on. I saw the O logo, in it’s entirety, as a simple and precise borrowing of the two WU logos.
I decided to do a little research on the creation of the O logo. Obviously, Sol Sender, the lead creator of the O logo, does not mention the WU logos as inspiration. But, I found what was the O logo before it’s final subtle tweak.
This fallowing image of the campaign logo brought my vision of the borrowing of the 2 WU logos too clear to sit on.
Here is Sol Sender in his own words:
Originally the stripes were kind of symmetrically expressed across the horizon, and as we went into final refinements we felt that giving it a little bit more dimension, a little bit more motion, ways to enter into it a little bit more for the viewer was a better way to go.
Only 20 minutes after I began to re-create the O logo using ONLY the 2 WU logos, this was the result along side the pre-dimension O logo.
It was too easy:
FIRST - I brought the top portion of the rainbow like WU logo to the middle of the circular WU logo.
SECOND - I cut out a circle along the circular WU logo parameters.
That was it.
I am not saying this is incontrovertible proof that Obama used the WU logos to create his O logo.
I am saying that this apparent link is extraordinary and should be looked into further, if possible.
If, in fact, the O logo was born out of the 2 WU logos, it would confirm that Obama is the true believer – the radical that I and many others know he is. It would mean that Obama felt he needed a symbol of radicalism (Marxism essentially) for him to privately identify with, while the masses see a crop-field (more like a Mao rice field) under a rising sun inside an O.
Obviously, there are countless symbols, logos, branding styles, and creative possibilities detached from WU symbolism which Obama could have drawn from - if he wanted to. There were countless possibilities for logos which would have been just as effective from a marketing standpoint. And it’s not as if the WU logos are particularly inspirational pieces of design.
If you think there is nothing significant about this apparent connection between the O logo and the WU logos, please take only 20 minutes of your time to re-create the O logo from any other single organization’s branding, in just two simple steps resulting in such a precise likeness.
As we conservatives thrive on having our theories challenged, (No - the debate is not over) I’m curious to see if someone can do it.
