Owner To Remove White Supremacist Billboard

ORLANDO, Fla. — A billboard owner has agreed to remove an advertisement rented by a white supremacist group after a Jewish group organized a telephone campaign and threatened a national boycott.

The Jewish Defense Organization launched the campaign against Sunshine Outdoor of Florida and its owner, Jerry Sullivan of Micanopy, to remove the advertisement from a billboard standing on Florida’s Turnpike about 35 miles from Orlando.

Sullivan had defended the sign on free speech grounds — a long as the client paid.

In big block letters on a black backdrop the sign reads “WHO RULE$ AMERIKA?” and gives the Internet address of the National Alliance, a neo-Nazi group based in West Virginia.

The New York-based Jewish Defense Organization put Sullivan’s name and phone number on its Web site and urged anyone who hates Nazis to call and complain.

An agreement to remove the sign had been made with Sullivan on Tuesday, said A.J. Weberman of the Jewish Defense Organization.

Sullivan’s spokesman, Dennis O’Neill, confirmed the deal to remove the sign.
