  •  But I do see it... (4+ / 0-)

    But in this case it is protected speech.  I'm not agreeing with it, nor supporting it, or anything of the sort.
    But even racist pigs are allowed to speak freely.

    •  He's Right. (3+ / 0-)

      As long as this person does not advocate violence, this billboard, ugly as it is, is protected speech.

      Of course, if someone puts a full page ad in the local paper, saying that who ever put up the sign on Ford's land is not only racist, he's totally wrong, with a list of facts, that's also free speech.

    •  Free speech also means (0+ / 0-)

      Nutting up and taking responsibility for the words you say.  

      If this asshole wants to have a sign full of trash, that is fine and I'll defend that right to the grave.  But that doesn't mean we can't disagree and since there is no law against taking a picture of his sign and posting it on the internet, we should post hateful crap like this far and wide.  

      We are the majority.  Assholes like the sign-maker are the minority.  They can either join us in the 21st century, or live in a cave.

      •  Freedom of Speech (0+ / 0-)

        Funny how people like the billboard guy never respect anyone else's freedom of speech.
        I wonder how many parents have to explain what an abortion is because some little kid just read it off that guys billboard.

        •  That's a mild anti-abortion billboard for MO (0+ / 0-)

          I've seen some very graphic signs down in the Bootheel.
