- Marietta Patch

Even though an anti-Obama message has been taken down from a local bar sign, people still showed up this weekend to protest.

It was a peaceful event Saturday at Mulligan’s Food and Spirits with about 20 protesters—organized by Marietta-based New Order National Human Rights Organization Inc.—showing up, according to the Marietta Daily Journal.

A sign, which read “I Heard The White House Smelled Like Collard Greens And Fried Chicken,” was just the latest controversial statement at the the bar on Park Street Southeast in Marietta.

In 2008, the bar received national attention when it sold T-shirts reading “Obama ’08” depicting the cartoon chimp Curious George peeling a banana.
