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.

If this is the type of person that would vote for Mitt Romney then I'm awfully glad I voted for Obama. Besides, if he really knew Romney he would rethink his stance. He has a lake house near the one we had in NH, and believe me, he does not have the best interests of people like this in mind. He is a total elitist and can't begin to relate to the middle class or to the type of person this Wayne Hall seems to be.

only time will tell who if the president is the right person, lets hope we can heal our country, stop being so hateful people. We are all in this together, we are Americans, act like it.

No Ina, we're not in it together except in the sense that half of us are paying for the existance of the other half.

He is frustrated because he knows what this is going to do to our country. BO does not care about or what the people of want or need. He has said he will change the US and he is on his way to do that. The rest of the world is happy because they know we are going to fall just like them. The current administration along with social interests do not care if we are dividede they actually want that to happen. It's makes in easier to accompish our downfall. UNITED WE STAND DIVIDED WE FALL!! Proof will be all the wonderful posts after mine that will say I'm an idiot etc when all I'm saying is I don't want to see our country destroyed and the american way of life lost for everyone's sake.

if you voted for obama then 1) you want to live in a socialist country where the govt gives you everything you need but takes all of the money you will ever earn or 2) you just voted becasue thats what the dem party wanted you to do and you can not think for yourself and ned to be told what to do. if you know romney so well, why dont you know just as well? becasue you didnt bother to research what was being said by both men. you fell in line like the rest of the lemmings who voted for oabam. too afarid to question what what being said. had you really researched buth men you would have found that only one man is hell bent on destrying the middle class and thus the economy and its not romney. you will start feeling bad about your vote when 1) you lose your job because of obamacare 2) you cant find a job because of obamacare and the rest of the taxes that are going up on businesses or 3) you are stuck applying for govt benefits and will spend the rest of your days living like other third world folks do. its a shame that your vote means i now have to adjust to being a welfare receipient , unemployed and with no prospects of success ( and besides, obama punishes successful people so for those that think thaey can be successful? obama wont let you).

This is the same sign that had "let's play cowboys and Muslims" earlier this summer. Horrible messages
Barbara Bates November 09, 2012 at 10:53 PM
And Obama can relate to the middle class?
Kelly Gibson November 10, 2012 at 12:54 AM
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?
Kelly Gibson November 10, 2012 at 12:55 AM
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.
