Congressional Candidate has installed a “Make America White Again” billboard in Polk County.
With all due respect, even in view of the First Amendment, Rick Tyler’s idea to put up a giant sign with the text distorting Donald Trump’s election campaign slogan and turning it into a racist proclamation, was too much.
The billboard saying, “Make America White Again” is located in Polk County, Tennessee; it has caused reasonable outrage and allegations of incitement of ethnic hatred.
Though the author of these highly controversial words does not see, or pretends not to see anything negative in his motto. He claims he just wanted to remind people about “a better America where there was far less violent time, you could leave your doors unlocked, and you didn’t have carjackings or home invasions.”
This miserable excuse for politician openly associates white supremacy with peace and prosperity, and black people – with the opposite.
Unfortunately, no lawsuits were filed against him, but the billboard was removed due to the complaints of the local people. One of those, posted by Amy Hines Woody on Facebook said:
“This disgusting bunch of bigotry was erected about 20 minutes from our house. The person listed, Mr. Rick Tyler, is a local business owner. Please, if you are the decent and loving people I know you to be, boycott this business.”
The whole story looks funny at first, but people like Tyler pose real threat, especially if they are empowered, because the drastic changes they bring will have the form of laws and rulings, so the count of victims may reach hundreds of thousands black people.
