FORT WALTON BEACH – A man who flies a Confederate flag on property he owns on Beal Parkway added two large signs Wednesday to express his feelings about President Barack Obama.
“January 20, 2009, A Day of Darkness, Hussen (sic)” is written on both signs, which are each about the size of a dinner table.
Before the second sign was even in the ground, someone had called the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office to ask a deputy to take a look to make sure the first sign would not “incite something.”
Property owner Larry Ford said he put up the signs to share his opinion of Obama, who he refers to as “Hussein.”
“We’ve got a man who shouldn’t even be president,” Ford said when reached by phone Thursday. “He’s an insult to the decent, hard-working people that made this country what it is.”
By Thursday night, Ford was featured on MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann as the worst person in the world.
