“Somewhere in Kenya a village is missing its idiot.”
That’s how an anti-President Barack Obama billboard reads in Hanson, Massachusetts, at Sullivans Inc., a motorcycle accessories distributor located at at 121 Franklin St.
“Obama One Big Ass Mistake America, Vote Mitt Romney for 2012!,” the billboard continues.
Two images of the hammer and sickle, symbolic of communism, are shown on Obama’s shirt collar.
Do you think that’s bad? Hold on.
A second billboard a few feet away depicts a young girl flipping the bird.
“Thanks Obama,” The billboard reads. ”You’ve spent my lunch money, my allowance, my inheritance, 35 years of future paychecks and my retirement. You Jerk.”
Many in this small town of about 10,000 about 18 miles southeast of Boston are shocked.
Building commissioner and zoning enforcement officer Robert P. Curran says the billboards violate town bylaws.
Robert Sullivan, the business owner, refused to comment.
Sullivan’s attorney, Roger S. Davis, cites free speech provisions of the U.S. Constitution when asked about the signs.
Unfortunately, this form of “free speech” appears to becoming a trend.
As we reported 16 days ago, a Tea Party-sponsored billboard in Elkhart, Indiana, tacitly equated President Barack Obama with Osama bin Laden, the al-Qaida leader who was killed last year at the hands of Navy SEALs on orders from the president.
