Obama burned in effigy


There are places around the world where Barack Obama is not as loved as he thinks he is. The Philippines is one of those places.

As you can see from the picture above, Filipino protestors burned President Obama in effigy as they paraded down the street.

Note to liberals: these are left wing protestors. Maybe they know something you don't...or at least refuse to admit?

Read more below from Breitbart:

"No-bama, no bases, no war," chanted an angry crowd of protesters in Manila Monday, infuriated by a ten-year defense deal in which the United States promised support for the Filipino army in the event of any dispute with the country's neighbors growing violent.

According to NBC News, the crowd paraded through the streets with several figurines that appeared constructed with the full detail of a parade float. The centerpiece of the protest, however, was a large dog with the face of the President of the Philippines, Benigno Aquino III. The dog pulled a chariot controlled by a figurine of President Barack Obama, which was burned in effigy while floating through the streets.

The activists, many members of the Philippines' left wing political party, also threw rotten tomatoes and eggs at the effigies before they were burned, according to the Philippine Star. Opponents believe, the report continues, that significant US military presence in the country violates provisions of the Filipino Constitution.
