four anti-vaxx artworks

Communist-style art posters mocking Biden and Fauci’s COVID mandates appear in DC
Heather Hamilton, Washington Examiner, Jan 17 2022

Four Communist-style posters featuring images of Biden and Fauci with mocking messages of COVID-19 mandate compliance appeared across Washington DC over the weekend. Photos and videos of the life-size posters have now taken social media by storm, with thousands of people sharing the posts. A Twitter account @LeighWolf snapped photos of the posters taped to the outside of a building on N St NE, just south of New York Avenue, after leaving a coffee shop Saturday. LeighWolf told the Washington Examiner: “I was floored. Couldn’t believe I was seeing this in the wild in DC.” LeighWolf said a lady then walked up and asked him if he had posted them or if he was there to take them down. That’s when he began taking video. In the video shared on Twitter, the lady is seen ripping the posters off the wall. LeighWolf asked her why and if all art must comply. She can be heard in the Twitter video saying:

Yes! It’s a public health concern! It’s alarmism! It’s dangerous propaganda! I live in the neighborhood! This is bullshit!

Noam Blum also spotted posters in Glover Park, near the intersection of Calvert St and Wisconsin Ave. Blum told the Washington Examiner:

I rarely see street art of this type coming from a right-wing (or however you want to call it) point of view, so it felt more noteworthy than some anti-Trump poster, which are a dime a dozen.

Blum noted that one of the posters portraying Biden as a saint with the text, “Good kids are compliant kids,” includes children looking up and wearing pins showing their allegiance to Fauci and vaccine mandates. Blum said on Twitter:

Hard to spot, but the kids are wearing pins that say “Hug me, I’m vaccinated,” a picture of Fauci and one that says “‘VACCINATED but still stay away from me.”

Photos show another poster depicting Biden angrily holding a mallet with the initials of the Occupational Health and Safety Administration on it. “COMPLY” is used as a border. A third poster shows Fauci dressed as a priest holding a large vaccine with text saying, “TRUST THE SCIENTISM.” Biden is also portrayed sitting on a throne holding a large coronavirus molecule (sic – RB), with the text “MANDATE! SEGREGATE! SUBJUGATE!” Social media replies to the posters praised the artwork and included many people asking how more can be ordered for distribution across the country. One reply to LeighWolf said:

We need these everywhere. Billboards, bus, stops. Schools. Let’s go. Time to Fight the Power and Rage Against the Machine.

Another reply played down the idea of the posters mocking the Biden mandates, saying:

I don’t see it as mocking. It’s a warning. This IS what’s happening. We are going to be the next USSR or WWII Germany if we can’t turn this around.

Other replies asked who the artist is. Neither LeighWolf nor Blum know who the artist is or who put up the posters. Many posts are suggesting that the artist remains anonymous for safety.
