A billboard in Maryland is raising eyebrows because it basically threatens violence against anyone attempting to impeach President Donald Trump.
There is a lot to read these days when you drive Solomons Island Road in Calvert County — politicians looking for votes, businesses looking for customers — and then there is this one on Bowie Shop Road.
It’s a billboard that is quite literally turning heads.
“Hey liberals,” it shouts, “Better get your guns if you try to impeach President Trump — from all your deplorables in Calvert County.”
Well, talk about a divided highway.
Listen to some of the comments we’re hearing:
“I love the billboard. We’re conservative and there’s a lot of corruption that’s happened in this country and I don’t think it’s threatening,” said conservative Michelle Rinker.
“I’m a Republican but I think it’s a little offensive. I think you can persuade people on the topics and not insult them,” said Kelly Mazzella, a Republican.
And this woman, who doesn’t want to be shown, saying her young son is frightened.
“I hate that billboard. I think it’s very threatening. I don’t like it at all,” she said.
It’s been up a couple of weeks now and it’s been all over social media.
A number for the owner posted on the sign goes unanswered.
Now the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office has been flooded with phone calls — some people complaining about the sign. Others complaining about the complaints about the sign, but the sheriff has now spoken to the owner and the owner has agreed, when he comes back from out of town, to at least change it.
Certainly his message has already been sent.
“If you take down or to attempt to take down a president then there’s going to be a problem,” said Rinker.
