Someone — no one knows who — has posted a billboard in Texas with an emphatic message for liberals.
“Liberals, please continue on I-40 until you have left our GREAT STATE OF TEXAS,” the sign says.
Kyle Mccallie of Fritch, Texas, posted the picture on his Facebook page and it quickly went viral. “Billboard 6 miles east of Vega on I-40 east bound! I like it,” Mccallie said in the post, which has been shared more than 20,000 times.
“Mccallie meantime told CBS 11 News he has received at least ten threats from people saying they were going to show up at his house and ‘snap his neck.’ ‘Lots of hate mail and death threats. But lots of ‘we love it’ also,’ said Mccallie.”
Mccallie posted one of the threats he allegedly received on his Facebook feed with the message “We’ve gotta hater on our hands!” The message from a person identified as James J Wallace appeared to be a clear threat telling Mccallie to “expect a visit” calling him a “small town country bumpkin” – as well as some other expletives that cannot be printed here. Mccallie responded, “Would you like to have a beer or something? I’m not sure what you’re getting at?”
“I don’t need a gun to snap your neck you little punk,” allegedly read another message sent to Mccallie.
As the threats continued from Wallace, Mccallie replied, “Just a fair warning due to the price of ammo I can’t afford to give a warning shot so bring a buddy to help out you back in your car…”
In a later post, Mccallie wrote: “So they took down the billboard since I caused a “nation wide uproar” as the news said. Does this mean I can act like a liberal and tell everyone how offended I am!? I think I might have to go find a safe room tonight and get a fidget spinner! I didn’t know snowflakes came out this heavy in June in such warm weather, but they’re everywhere!”
You gotta’ love Texas!
