A few days ago, I wrote a post about billboard in Worthington Borough, Armstrong County, Pennsylvania. It is an electronic billboard located on the property of the Worthington-West Franklin Volunteer Fire Dept, facing west at the intersection of 422 and Bear Street, which is an intersection with a traffic light. Yes, this hate is helping to fund public safety in Worthington (and West Franklin.) That must be so comforting to the local residents.
Check out my previous post for 11 suggestions on how you can advocate for folks in Worthington who have to endure this nasty messaging. Sources tell me that the VFD is particularly unhappy with the calls and feedback. Click and call, my allies. Clearly, the VFD outreach to the billboard owner is having an impact. Counter hate speech with more speech.

Tonight, one of my local sources sent me snaps of the the very latest images which are even more offensive than the previous ones. He didn’t waste time in targeting the LGBTQ and Black communities about developments in the Jussie Smollett case. Visit my colleague’s blog Holy Bullies and Headless Monsters for a take on that.
These images are beyond awful. I think (hope) the line through the word women is a digital aberation, but it hardly matters given the pure evil, nasty, bitchiness that this racist businessman in Worthington, Armstrong County, Pennsylvania feels is appropriate to display. How long will folks in Worthington allow this to continue?
