Slide Plant Market Uses Its Marquee to Voice Anti-Hillary Clinton Message
A South Lubbock County business owner is using his marquee sign to voice his opinion concerning a presidential candidate.
The Slide Plant Market, located at FM 41 and Slide Road (195th Street & Slide), is owned by Mark Lee.
Lee recently put this message up on the south side of his marquee: "Crooked Hillary Clinton Would Be A F---ing Disaster!" Clinton is currently the presumptive Democrat Presidential nominee, clinching the required number of total delegates.
Online reaction to the sign has been mixed, which should be legal under First Amendment protections.
Lee told KFYO's news partners at KAMC News: "I've got that corner, that's my corner. If you can't say what you want to say out here in the middle of a cotton field, and that's where I am. I am in Slide, Texas. Actually, I'm in Slide, America. You know, and in Slide, America we can say anything we want to say."
Photos of the Slide Plant Market anti-Hillary Clinton sign can be seen in the gallery above. As of the evening of June 9, the anti-Hillary Clinton message was still displayed on the marquee.
