An Oregon business owner has posted a sign in his storefront window telling liberals to “go straight to hell” in response to the hate crime kidnapping and torture of a white disabled man last week in Chicago.

Kevin Kerwin, owner of Kevin the Geek Computer Repair Shop in Lake Oswego, posted a sign that reads, “To all ignorant liberals including Bruce Springsteen…The 4 people who kidnapped & tortured a disabled teenager just because he supports Donald Trump just shows everyone you are a party of complete morons.

“I’m embarrassed to call you Americans. Go straight to Hell where you belong. We’ve had it with you idiots,” the sign says.

Two black men and two black women were charged last week with hate crimes after allegedly kidnapping, gagging, and beating a white man with mental disabilities and streaming it on Facebook Live. While the man’s abusers shouted “f— white people” and “f— Trump,” there’s currently no evidence to suggest the victim was an actual supporter of the president-elect.

Mr. Kerwintold Fox News columnist Todd Starnes that he’s been getting increasingly frustrated with liberal politics and rhetoric that he believes fuels incidents like in Chicago.

“Oregon is a very beautiful state, but it’s infested with liberals,” he said.” When that kidnapping happened — that was one of the last straws.”

“Since the election, liberals have been burning down Portland, smashing cars, crying like babies, calling they got the popular vote when everyone knew it was the electoral vote, and crying and crying,” Mr. Kerwintold Willamette Week. “And then when I saw that video of that kid getting tortured I said, ‘Screw you all, I hate you.’”

“I hate you,” he continued. “I hate all of you. They’re nothing but thugs and nothing but a modern-day KKK. I’ve had it with liberals, I’ve had it with you, I’ve had it with your media and CNN. Do you understand if I’ve had it or not?”

A second sign in front of Mr. Kerwin’s store reads, “Comedy News Network, Fake News all the Time, Propaganda for Liberals,” Fox News reported.

He also has a beef with Mr. Springsteen, one of his favorite singers, who ranted against Mr. Trump and his supporters as “un-American” during a recent “WTF” podcast with Marc Maron.

Mr. Kerwin said he has been flooded with harassing phone calls and negative reviews on Yelp, but he’s also received a wave of support from conservatives.

“People have called me from all over the country telling me [that] I said exactly how they feel,” he told MyNorthwest.com.

“The liberals started boycotting me four years ago when I started putting up signs against Obama,” he added. “If liberals don’t want to use my shop, so be it.”
