Obama, “Hollywood Jews” Targeted by Posters in L.A. at Anti-Iran Deal Rally – Hollywood Reporter
Street artist Sabo tells THR that the event’s organizers asked him to remove the incendiary signs, but he refused.
Hollywood’s conservative nemesis has struck again.
Street artist Sabo papered the area around the Federal Building in Los Angeles early Sunday in preparation for a 2 p.m. PT Iran nuke deal protest, organized by Stop Iran Rally.

Among his series of posters, he criticized Jewish people in the industry for their silence on the deal and praised Donald Trump for his anti-Iran stance.
The artist is an ardent Ted Cruz supporter, who comes out looking like a hero in the latest series of posters. One poster parodies ads for the upcoming film Straight Outta Compton by touting Cruz as “Straight Outta Congress.”
Sabo tells The Hollywood Reporter that the rally’s organizers asked him to remove the posters, but he refused. “Right off the bat, the organizers asked me to take my signs down because they wanted a consultant message [that] my posters didn’t follow,” Sabo says. “I told them the First Amendment didn’t say anything about a common voice. [So the posters] stayed up. Now, they are carried by people in the crowd.”
Meanwhile, security officers hired for the event tried to obscure the signs posted at a bus stop on Wilshire Blvd. by standing in front of them. A sign that read “The world cannot afford a nuclear Iran” was propped up against a Sabo poster to hide an epithet he used to describe the Obama Administration.
Sabo has become best known in Hollywood over the past year for his creative endeavors ridiculing industry political fundraisers and Democratic candidates.
