I saw this article on msnbc.com and how this billboard hasn’t been taken down is beyond me. Freedom of speech is one thing, but to put up an enormous billboard in a car dealership that can be seen from the highway is crossing the line. Not only is the depiction of the president offensive, but it tries to link him with the mass shooting at the army post in Fort Hood, Texas. Although I know several people bought into the idea that the president’s birth certificate was fake and that he was born outside of the United States, this just emphasizes how ignorant some people can be even in these times.

  1. Wow, really? This is a little ridiculous. Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

    • I can’t even believe that such blunt bigotry is legal. I mean I understand the freedom of speech but for someone to pay money to advertise that is beyond me.

  2. This goes to show how ignorant how America can be. This billboard should have been taken down as soon as it went up. I’m glad that many people are against this sign because this is just ridiculous.
