Soviet-style posters are popping up around Washington, D.C., mocking President Joe Biden and chief White House medical adviser Anthony Fauci over their handling of COVID-19.
Posters reminiscent of Communist propaganda from the Soviet Union have popped up in areas of Washington, D.C, according to some of the area’s residents who have posted pictures of the posters online. The posters feature a variety of slogans pushing COVID-19 vaccines and mandates with imposing images of Biden and Fauci.
Tablet Magazine’s chief technology officer Noam Blum posted images of two posters put up in the Glover Park neighborhood of D.C. One of the posters features Biden with a halo of syringes with the slogan “Good Kids Are Compliant Kids.” Below Biden, a number of masked children are gazing up while wearing buttons that say “hug me, I’m vaccinated,” “I’ve been vaccinated,” and “vaccinated, but still stay away from me.”
Another poster shows Fauci with a halo of concentric ovals that appear to mimic the paths of electrons depicted in an atom. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director is standing and holding a syringe in his right hand as dollar bills float down around him. The poster is emblazoned with the slogan “Trust The Scientism.”

Leigh Wolf, a conservative communications professional, posted photos of several more posters he spotted in D.C., south of New York Avenue. Wolf found a group of four posters, two of them identical to the posters captured by Blum. The first of the other two features a screaming Biden holding a hammer engraved with “OSHA,” the abbreviation for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. The image is surrounded by the command “Comply” on all four sides.
The second poster features Biden wearing red-tinted aviator sunglasses and holding a ball reminiscent of a virus. In the background of the photo, the U.S. Constitution is ripped in half. The poster features the words “Mandate! Segregate! Subjugate!” at the top.

Wolf also shared a video of a woman ripping the posters down.
“Yes, it’s a public health concern,” she says in the video. “It’s alarmism. It is dangerous propaganda … I live in the neighborhood. This is bulls***.”
In November, OSHA published a rule mandating that large employers force their employees to get vaccinated against COVID-19 or submit to weekly testing. The Supreme Court blocked the OSHA rule in a decision last week. As The Daily Wire reported:
The Supreme Court blocked the Biden administration’s emergency rule that would have forced large employers to vaccinate or regularly test their employees.
The decision, delivered Thursday, is a major victory for the mandate’s critics, including The Daily Wire which sued the Biden administration in November. The Daily Wire and others appealed to the Supreme Court to block the order after the Sixth Circuit lifted a stay put in place by the Fifth Circuit.
“OSHA’s COVID–19 Vaccination and Testing; Emergency Temporary Standard, 86 Fed. Reg. 61402, is stayed pending disposition of the applicants’ petitions for review in the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit and disposition of the applicants’ petitions for writs of certiorari, if such writs are timely sought. Should the petitions for writs of certiorari be denied, this order shall terminate automatically. In the event the petitions for writs of certiorari are granted, the order shall terminate upon the sending down of the judgment of this Court,” the court concluded in a 6-3 decision.
