Anti-Obama Signs Posted Near Cane Bay

Berkeley County company has angry message for Obama voters.

Berkeley County, S.C. — Anger over the result of Tuesday's presidential election has bubbled over on the roadside not far from Cane Bay.

A sign posted along State Road rants against Obama supporters, praying that the Northeast and West Coast should fall into the ocean.

The large letter-board sign sits in front of a landscaping office at 1412 State Road. The other side reads "Did you vote for Obama? Thanks a lot asshole!"

Obama won Tuesday's election after a very contentious campaign season, but a majority of Berkeley County voters supported Republican candidate Mitt Romney. Romney won the vote in South Carolina. 

Wayne Hall, listed in Berkeley County records as the owner of the property, could not be reached for comment. Another sign at the gated entrance to the property reads "Prayer is a way to meet the Lord. Trespassing is faster." Two phone numbers listed online for Hall's business were no longer working.

Edmund Jones, a nearby resident for three years and a retired Navy sailor, said he's seen messages posted on the sign before. "I've never seen profanity like this," he said. "He's calling me an asshole. I voted for Obama."

In an unrelated case, a Johns Island man is facing felony charges after he called Charleston County 911 on Wednesday, threatening to shoot President Obama.

This is the same sign that had "let's play cowboys and Muslims" earlier this summer. Horrible messages

And Obama can relate to the middle class?

And that has what to do with the reality of the fact that the Arab world regards the people of America as their mortal enemies along with Israel?

O I forgot to add: If the leader of Iran says he want to destroy all Americans do you feel like that is a horrible message or you think its okay?

Why can't this individual express his views without rage, cursing and insulting his fellow Americans? His insulting views are there to see for everyone that drives their children to the nearby elementary, middle and high schools.Great unproductive example of how you handle your disagreements and problems. I don't know why I bother to look at them, it's like I want to see what angry, degradating words he has come up with next. He gets attention alright, but you can't help feeling a little sorry for him.
