‘In the interest of common decency’: Offensive signs in store window spark online outrage

A New Mexico store has come under fire for a controversial sign it displayed warning President Obama, “and other Muslims,” that they are not welcome to shop in the establishment.

The convenience store in Mayhill, N.M. has dozens of signs attacking the president with slogans like “Kill Obama” and “Obama loves the USA like O.J. Simpson loved Nicole,” and it has been going on for years, KOB reported.

Some of the signs attack former Democrat Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, as well as African-Americans and others, and a former employee, Marlon McWilliams, told KOB that the owner asks people walking by to read the signs.

Some customers actually even purchase the signs, KOB reported,

“It’s been here a long time,” McWilliams said. “… If you go in there and you offend him, you can’t go in there no more. He turns lots of people away.”

“He sells those signs to people who come through and stop and read them,” he added.

The store is currently for sale with an asking price of $359,000.

“I wish somebody would buy it,” McWilliams said . “I really do, because it would be a great asset for somebody to be there to run it. Because that’s the only place you can go to get milk and bread.”

Residents have taken to social media to call for the store’s owner to remove the signs and the Council on American-Islamic Relations also took aim at the store.

“While everyone has the First Amendment right to free speech – even offensive speech – we urge the store’s owner to remove the sign in the interest of common decency and of our nation’s unity at a time of increasing divisions,” CAIR National Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper wrote in a statement.
