A billboard with cartoon depictions of Obama in Grand Junction Colorado was taken down after the owner and his wife received violent threats. This is leftist tolerance on display.

“He got a lot of calls out of his place of business that he said he was fine with. When things got out of hand and people started calling his wife, that’s when he decided to go ahead and take it down,” says Blake Brueggeman, owner of Integrity Auto Repair.

The sign’s artist says it’s meant to convey a message. It showed President Obama as a terrorist, gangster, Mexican bandito and a homosexual. “It’s got a lot of symbolism in it, in that all of those characters are issues being mishandled by presidency,” says creator of the sign, artist Paul Snover.

“We had cartoons of George W. Bush with gorillas,” says Jamie Lee Smith, who is angered that the sign was taken down.

“It is sad that people have to go so low as to threaten somebody’s life because they don’t like a sign,” says Dennis Patton, who stopped by the sign to see that it had actually been taken down.

“Political correctness is a suppression of free speech,” says Brueggeman.
