Anti-Obama signs go too far? [WATCH VIDEO]

A local business owner in Hanson, Mass. is testing the limits of free speech by putting up two large and inflammatory anti-Obama signs.

Right outside of Sullivans, Inc., a motorcycle accessories distributor in Hanson, a large sign displays President Obama and says: “Somewhere in Kenya, a village is missing it’s idiot. Obama One Big Ass Mistake America, Vote Mitt Romney for 2012!” On both sides of Obama’s shirt collar are images of the hammer and sickle, a well known symbol of communism.

Several feet away sits another sign that shows a pouting little girl seemingly giving the middle finger to President Obama. The sign reads: “Thanks, Obama” in bold red letters before continuing in child-like handwriting. “You’ve spent my lunch money, my allowance, my inheritance, 35 years of future paychecks and my retirement. You jerk.”

Some local residents are calling for the signs to be taken down and argue they are over the top and offensive, the Patriot Ledger reports. Meanwhile, others say free speech extends to everyone, including people with obnoxious opinions. Hanson is largely Democratic, has a population of about 10,000 and is located about 18 southeast of Boston.

One father told the Patriot Ledger that he has to prevent his children from seeing the sign with the little girl giving the president the one finger salute.

“If (my 6-year-old daughter) saw that, she’d say ‘Why is that little girl doing that? What does that mean?’” Folsom said. “How do I explain that?”
