Article Title: Billboard Controversy Comes To North Texas
The ad in Gainesville depicts two men in camouflage holding weapons. The text next to the picture, in a military style font, says “The Seals removed one threat to America,” a reference to the killing of Osama bin Laden. It continues, “Remove the other in November.”
The bottom of the sign says it’s a political ad, paid for by TJ Schad, and has a Gainesville address.

Here's the other version ... clearly free speech.
My thoughts ... there is no threat. Well, maybe the threat to be voted out. Here's what I find so interesting. People scream FREE SPEECH! FREE SPEECH! when they agree with the sentiment but if they don't, suddenly it's "racist" or a "threat" or "hate" or "offensive". No where does it say that you have the right to NOT be offended. You do not have to like what someone else is saying, nor do you have to listen to it but they have the same right as you to say it.
