People argue — over politics, religion, or the best recipe for egg salad. As an argument progresses, one party will inevitably compare the other to Hitler or Nazism, regardless of the original topic. It’s known as “Godwin’s Law,” and former State Sen. Kelli Ward has seen enough of it.
A billboard was installed in Phoenix this March, depicting President Donald Trump alongside Nazi imagery, depicting America’s chief executive in a light Ward finds to be “atrocious,” according to a Tuesday press release. Ward has begun a campaign to lawfully remove the Phoenix billboard, and to replace it with a pro-Trump billboard.
“It’s a blight on the great city of Phoenix,” Ward said. “I believe in free speech, but I also believe in capitalism, which is why I’m having my campaign look into making an offer for the billboard space.”
Ward criticized her 2016 U.S. senatorial opponent, John McCain, alongside U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake for their lack of support for Trump, creating the sort of political atmosphere in which such a billboard might be deemed acceptable.
“That’s no excuse for this kind of radical political propaganda to be called art,” Ward said. Ward is asking for contributions from the public to help design and replace the offending billboard.

We’re through with lying, fake “conservatives.”
