Soviet-style posters mocking President Joe Biden and White House Medical Advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci popped up overnight Saturday in Washington, D.C., but the posters were ripped down within hours. 

Leigh Wolf, a conservative communications professional, tweeted photos of the four posters.

"Somebody put up this incredible street art in DC over night," he said. "Knowing DC it’ll be ripped down within hours. All must comply!"

One photo of the poster shows an angry Biden holding a hammer labeled OHSA (Occupational Health and Safety Administration) and with the word "COMPLY" serving as a border. Another poster shows a Biden portrayed as a saint surrounded by a halo of vaccines. The poster states, "Good kids are compliant kids" as children look up at the president. 

"Mandate! Segregate! Subjugate!" is written at the top of another poster featuring Biden holding a sphere of the coronavirus. The fourth poster shows Dr. Fauci dressed in a priest's garb, with an atom halo holding a giant vaccine as pills and money rain behind him, and the caption is "Trust the scientism."

About ten minutes after tweeting pictures of the posters, Wolf followed up with a video. "ANNND some lady is already out here ripping down the 'dangerous propaganda,'" he wrote.

He asked the woman in the video why she was tearing down the posters. 

"It's a public health concern," she told him. 

"I mean, it's just art," Wolf replied.

"It is dangerous. Propaganda is a tool," she said, adding, "this is bulls***."

Wolf told the conservative website American Conservative Movement he has no idea who put the posters up. He found the posters in northwest D.C.

Tablet Magazine CTO Noam Blum found the posters in another location in D.C. and also tweeted a photo.

Not the Bee, a website from creators of the satirical Babylon Bee, created an article about the posters headlined, "Someone put up this brilliantly based street art in D.C. and of course some Karen came along to tear it down."
