Kansas City: A second billboard, this time yellow in colour, has come up north of Kansas City on Highway 71, that likens President Barack Obama to homicidal despots Adolph Hitler and Mao Tse-Tung.

A shadowy organisation named after Francis Marion is raising funds to post these billboards in the heartland, reports ABC News.

This one shows pictures of Hitler under "National Socialism”, Mao under "Marxist Socialism" and President Obama under "Democratic Socialism”.

Last month, the North Iowa Tea Party displayed a similar billboard in downtown Mason City, comparing the President to Hitler and Russian despot Vladimir Lenin.

"Radical leaders prey on the fearful and naive," that billboard read.

The North Iowa Tea Party took down that billboard after national Tea Party leaders criticised it.

This Missouri billboard provides the website address for the shadowy organisation, www.francismarion.biz, an organisation that lists a PO box at a UPS store in Cumming, Georgia, as its point of contact.
