They are public figures and there is no libel.

Before the "historic first black _resident" 's reign of error, being called RAYCISS! would have caused me to pause and seriously think about, consider, and rethink my beliefs, opinions and attitudes. Why would you call me that ? What did I say or do ? etc …


These days, it's just the left's knee-jerk reaction to anything said about someone that isn't lily-white. Couldn't criticize the last _resident's Marxism and tearing down the country, ... RAYCISS! Couldn't comment about the influx of disease, crime, child trafficking, gang activity, and drugs from the southern border … RAYCISS! Can't quote rat and vermin statistics about my old home(-ish) town of Bawlamore - RAYCISS! And so on, ad infinitum ...


Any more, I just laugh at all the -ist, -ism, and -phobe names and realize I've won the argument.

When you are in the public eye, such as a politician or other public figure and create controversy, you can expect some reactions...

The Squad is no stranger to violent threats. Ocasio-Cortez receives so many death threats that her staff performs risk assessments of all visitors. Omar also said she’s been targeted by more death threats ever since President Donald Trump tweeted out a video that cross-edited footage of the congresswoman speaking and the 9/11 attacks. During a hearing on white supremacy, Tlaib teared up while reading a death threat sent to her office that wrote, “The only good Muslim is a dead one.”

And yes, the owner is entitled to his free speech, I agree.
Actually, no and that's the problem.
Racist has a definition: a person who shows or feels discrimination or prejudice against people of other races, or who believes that a particular race is superior to another.
How were the women on the billboard discriminated against or judged based on their race?

And yes these women were in the spotlight before Trumps rhetoric for their extreme progressive, liberal and socialist politics. Perhaps not collectively.

Some folks need a dictionary and meds to stop the kneejerk response to things that trigger them.

There would never have been a billboard without Trump. He started with the attacks and some of his supporters just couldn't help themselves. Ignorance knows no bounds apparently.

People have been complaining about, and deriding, 3 of the 4 women for months. Where have you been?

Democrats do not like free speech at all, this is more evidence of such.

Those Democrats have been talking crap about Trump since he won, you are right though, ignorance is bliss.


There would be no billboard if those anti American Democrats were not here.

Yes, trump is so awesome he can cause anything to happen, hurricanes, billboards.

Trump is not the founder of political attacks, condemnation, ridicule, jokes, etc. I guess that's in the eye of the beholder though, huh.

Hmmm...
A change was made, it seems. The article I read said that bumper stickers were being handed out free to anyone who came in the shop, ate bacon, and said they would vote for trump in 2020.
One of the comments made under that article said that those "women" should not be called a "squad", they should be called a "Coven".
I agree with "Coven" for describing those witches, and I would like to have a bumper sticker, but I am not willing to go to NC to get one.
Oh, well....
