ABC 13 News reported:

“An anti-Barack Obama sign in Hendersonville draws a crowd of protesters. ”

“They say the sign is racist and had no business on one of the city’s busiest highways. ”

“The owner of the sign, realtor Jimmy Edney says it has nothing to do with racism. ”

“The sign said ‘Osama-Obama, Not American, Not Welcome.’”

“But, those six words have infuriated some democrats, republicans, and independents ”

“Nearly 60 protesters waved signs and shouted at drivers beneath the sign for hours this morning and afternoon. ”
