VANCOUVER, Wash. (KOIN) - There is nothing illegal about a message posted Thursday on a sign at a Vancouver used car dealership. But the sign was seen as racist and offensive.

"That Kenyan is not my President" was the message in the bottom left corner of the business sign for Austin's Affordable Autos.

President Obama's father was born in Kenya.

The message, since taken down, was on private property for about four days. and the owner's freedom of speech is protected by the US Constitution. But that doesn't mean it didn't upset many people.

Among the comments people said to KOIN 6 News:

"'That Kenyan is not my President.' And he's trying to sell cars?" "You have the right to have freedom of speech." "Hey, free speech. We don't have free speech, we have no more country."

"There is freedom of speech, but it's also a stupid statement to put on a sign. You can't fix stupid," Cliff McCray told KOIN 6 News.

If you want to make conservatives angry, tell them a lie.
If you want to make liberals angry, tell the truth.

I do not know where Obumbo was born, but I think Mombasa is just as likely as Honolulu.

As previously reported on FR

Obama’s ratings are so low now that Kenyans are now accusing him of being born in the United States.

That’s not fair.

His paternal grandmother is adamant that she witnessed The Kenyan’s birth at a hospital in Mombasa, but they shut her up with a quickness.

If he sells 7 this month, he will have sold more than the number of people who signed up for Obamacare in Washington DC this month. Who is the better used car salesman? Obama couldn’t run a lemonade stand in Time Square in the middle of summer and make a profit.

Liberals will ridicule you if you say Obama is a Communist.

If you put a Bumper Sticker on your car that says “The only good Commie is a dead Commie”, those same Liberals will accuse you of threatening the life of Obama.

Vancouver, Washington, is one of those “on the other side of the river” towns.

It is across the Columbia River, accessed by the I-5 bridge that connects it to one of the liberal hotbeds of Oregon, Portland.

So, yes, I wish him well selling cars.
