So free speech is a threat to national security now?
An Georgia businessman who hung a sign reading, “Not hiring until Obama is gone,” was reported to the FBI and was investigated by the Secret Service as a threat to national security. Liberal tolerance is truly a one-way street.
Atlanta Business Chronicle reported:
A Waco, Ga., businessman has stirred up a load of controversy due to signs he posted on his company’s trucks that say: “New Company Policy: We are not hiring until Obama is gone,” reports Atlanta Business Chronicle broadcast partner WXIA-TV.
When asked by a WXIA reporter what is behind the sentiment, Bill Looman, the owner of U.S. Cranes, LLC, said simply, “Can’t afford it.” [...]
Looman said someone, and he thinks he knows who it was, reported him to the FBI as a threat to national security. He told WXIA the accusation made its way through the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security and finally the Secret Service. Agents interviewed him. “The Secret Service left here, they were in a good mood and laughing,” said Looman, who added he just spent 10 years in the Marine Corps. “I got the feeling they thought it was kind of ridiculous, and a waste of their time.”
