Gun store billboard calling 'the squad' four horsemen of 'idiots' is coming down

A Murphy, North Carolina, billboard that called members of the "squad" ó including Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley ó the four horsemen of "idiots" is coming down after sparking controversy.

The billboard was an advertisement for Cherokee Guns and was helped designed by its owner, known as Doc. Despite Doc not apologizing for the sign, Allison Outdoor Advertising said it will be removed, according to WTVC.

"We're not in the business of upsetting people, and it's a shame it has come to this,Ē a representative for Allison Outdoor Advertising said.

"For all those who has concern over the Cherokee Guns Artwork. The board is coming down. This Creative never came on managements desk for approval. We understand this is a delicate subject and we greatly apologize for it ever going up," the company further said on social media.

1. "It's a shame it has come to this"

Meaning what, exactly? It's not clear from the story whether Allison Outdoor Advertising feels it's a shame that their advertiser is calling for political assassination or that the targets of their advertiser's ad objected to being put in danger?

But the anti-American dumbfuck who bought the billboard in the first place truly believes in his bigotry and hatred, so who's the real victim here?

2. Gee, I wonder why a gun store would have The Squad on its billboard ad.

What could the connection between these women and guns possibly be?

7. It's a real stumper, isn't it?

What is that GUN store owner even implying? Itís way too obscure for my little overheated, freedom-loathing socialist brain.

4. Why are they so afraid of "idiots"?

If the congress persons are really idiots, why is their superior intellect so threatened?

Crazy peeps donít make good sense.

9. Many people don't eat bacon for many reasons... religious, ethical, and personal.

The bacon eating cult gets weirder and weirder every day.
