Billboard in Texas urging liberals to leave the great state of Texas to be countered with another billboard

A Texas billboard that urged liberals to keep driving until they left the state will be coming down. “Liberals please continue on I-40 until you have left our GREAT STATE OF TEXAS,” the sign reads. “I was shocked that it travelled that fast,” Burkett, owner of Burkett Outdoor Advertising, which owns the billboard, told Star-Telegram. “I believe in free speech, but this country is divided enough as it is. I’ve spoken with the client, and he’s agreed that it should come down. We’ll be reimbursing him.”

The photo has been shared over 10,000 times on Facebook. Mccallie, who shared the photograph, stated that he was supportive of the message. He also claimed that he has received numerous critical messages since then, many of them obscene.

Mccallie stated some threatened him as well with many saying that they will show up at his house and “snap your neck”. “Lots of hate mail and death threats. But lots of ‘we love it’ also,” said Mccallie. The billboard was received well by conservatives. ‘Wonderful sign! Need them all over all the states telling them to go south!’ one man wrote.

Roman Leal created a GoFundMe account to raise money in order to counter the initial Billboard with another. His appeal said, “We need a sign that represents the true, hospitable spirit of the great state of Texas. “Texas is for Everyone — Except Bigots” will go up on the Lamar digital billboard at I40 and Coulter. It will be visible to travellers and commuters driving along the interstate in Amarillo, giving us a chance to put our best boot forward. Meeting the campaign goal will keep the billboard up for 4 weeks. Any contributions exceeding the goal will be used to pay for a longer duration.”
