So! There's a billboard in Missouri that compares President Obama to Adolf Hitler and Mao Zedong. And as you'd expect, it has a Peach State connection.

Via ABC News' Jake Tapper:

This Missouri billboard provides the website address for the shadowy organization, www.francismarion.biz, an organization that lists a P.O. box at a UPS store in Cumming, Georgia, as its point of contact. No one at the group responded to an email request for more information.

Marion was a South Carolinian who fought against the British and is considered one of the founders of guerilla warfare. Mel Gibson's character in the film "The Patriot" was modeled after Marion, called "the Swamp Fox."

FrancisMarion.biz's mission statement says "We can honestly say that, we (the 'Angry Americans') are tired of the socialist abuse of our kindness. Hence, it is our mission to identify those socialist leaders, allow them to face the scrutiny and humility of America and educate our citizenship on their distructive (sic) purpose and goals."

The website is kind of a hoot. There's a posts about how one goes about impeaching the president, a photo of a Very Historic Place© and a chest-thumping quote from Samuel Adams, who, keep in mind, never resorted to billboards to spread his message. He hired skywriters. And shot girls.

The group's website has directions in case you want to take the kids and visit — or detailed instructions if you'd like its help setting up your own billboard.

This only shows the country that everyone would be better off if Georgia were swallowed by the Earth.
