    ‘Racism Lives Here’: Trump Supporters Targeted in Coronado with Rogue Yard Signs

    https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2...ue-yard-signs/

    Joel B. Pollak 29 Oct 2020

    Supporters of President Donald Trump are being targeted in Coronado, California with yard signs reading, “Racism Lives Here” that are designed to mimic Trump/Pence lawn signs.



    Several residents had the signs placed on their lawns or gates in the small island community, often where Trump signs or flags had already been displayed.

    According to Coronado Police Department spokesperson Lea Corbin, the signs were in the yards of homes where Trump flags…

    Local NBC affiliate KNSD reported:

    Police in Coronado were called out after some residents woke up to find out that signs reading “Racism Lives Here” were installed in their yards.

    The red, white and blue signs are well-made and are close in appearance to some Trump/Pence signs, with the phrase “Racism Lives Here” replacing the candidates’ names and the updated 2020 campaign slogan “Keep America Great” switched to 2016’s more-familiar “Make America Great Again.”

    Police told KNSD that placing a sign in someone else’s yard may be “unwanted,” but is not a “crime.”

    Residents were shocked and offended, with one telling KNSD: “We do not feel [Trump]’s racist in any way, shape, or form.”

    The San Diego Union-Tribune said there were half a dozen reports of the signs:

    The Coronado Police Department received six phone calls from residents complaining about these unwanted lawn signs that mirror the colors, font and design of Trump 2020.

    Two of the callers had Trump signs or flags decorating their home, according to Coronado Police Department Spokeswoman Leah Corbin.

    Officers are in the process of collecting security camera footage from one of the homes. Additionally, officers will be out and patrolling those areas, she added.

    The community is home to three U.S. Navy bases, including the training facility for the Navy SEALs.

    It’s not? Do the residents want the sign? Did they request it? Old mattresses are hard to get rid of. Who knew you could just put them in some strangers yard?

    I'll bet if one were to retaliate/escalate, i.e. make "Racism Lives Here" signs with Biden's "Build Back Better" slogan, featuring photos from recent riots, and festoon them all over Democrat lawns, all-of-a-sudden it would be a crime.

    They have these small "Vote Democrat" signs with a D in a blue circle plastered all over around here.

    Scottish Justice Sec Demands ‘Hate Speech’ at Home Be Prosecuted

    https://www.breitbart.com/europe/202...be-prosecuted/

    Victoria Friedman 29 Oct 2020

    Humza Yousaf has said that he wants Scotland’s new hate crime bill to criminalise conversations in private homes, if they allegedly stir up hatred.

    Journalists, Christians, secular groups, comedians, writers, academics, and the police have all come out in objection to the proposed Hate Crime and Public Order (Scotland) Bill which would criminalise the perceived stirring up of hatred against a group with ‘protected characteristics’, such as religion, sexual orientation, or race.

    Despite reports last month that the proposed law would be ‘watered down’, so that authorities would still require evidence of intent to offend in order to secure a conviction, Mr Yousaf, of the leftist separatist Scottish National Party (SNP) wants the law to have the power to invade people’s private homes, according to The Times.

    Yousaf said there would not be a “dwelling defence” — such as in the 1986 Public Order Act which outlaws abusive, threatening, or insulting words if uttered in your own home — so that discussions at a dinner table could land a Scotsman in court for hate speech.

    “Are we comfortable giving a defence to somebody whose behaviour is threatening or abusive, which is intentionally stirring up hatred against, for example, Muslims? Are we saying that that is justified because that is in the home?… If your intention was to stir up hatred against Jews… then I think that deserves criminal sanction,” Mr Yousaf told Members of the Scottish Parliament.

    Count Dankula: Hate Crime Bill Will Criminalise ‘Jokes and Memes’, ‘Coward’s Way Out’ of Dealing With Racism https://t.co/OZsJT0DWPa

    — Breitbart London (@BreitbartLondon) July 26, 2020

    In reaction to Wednesday’s Times report, Mr Yousaf doubled down on his position, saying: “If you invite ten mates round and it can be proven beyond reasonable doubt that you intentionally stirred up hatred against Jews, why should this not be prosecuted? It would if you did so down the pub but not in your house?”

    Head of the Free Speech Union Toby Young warned that this type of censorship might occur south of the border, saying on Wednesday in response the to the report: “The Law Commission of England and Wales is proposing to change the law so exactly the same thing applies here.”

    Concerns have been raised over the effect the Scottish law will have on freedom of speech, including on comedy, with Yousaf saying he wants the rules to be applicable the theatre directors and journalists, too.

    Christians fear that the law could even result in the Bible being at risk of being considered offensive material. The Free Church of Scotland said in July that as “the offence of possessing inflammatory material could lead to books and other materials being confiscated and destroyed”, quoting verses deemed offensive could see “the Bible itself” be taken and disposed of.

    Likewise, Scottish Catholic bishops worry that “possessing inflammatory material could even render material such as the Bible and the Catechism of the Catholic Church … inflammatory”.

    A leading atheist in Scotland has hailed the SNP’s proposed Hate Crime Bill as an opportunity to target Christians for prosecution.https://t.co/XMc83dvVAy

    — Christian Concern (@CConcern) September 1, 2020

    In August, the head of Atheists Scotland Ian Stewart said that he looked forward to the passing of the bill, which could be used to “enable the prosecution of all Scotland’s religions and their Holy Books for spreading hatred”.

    The National Secular Society for its part, however, warned that the proposed law would threaten the freedom to criticise religion, warning in July that the bill “risks capturing a vast array of speech and will create an unreasonable expectation that religious sensibilities are protected by something akin to a blasphemy law”. Even with the recent inclusion of needing to prove intent to offend, the secular group said that that was not enough and that the bill remains “a menace to free and open debate”.

    In July, Markus Meechan, the Scottish Youtuber and free speech advocate known artistically as Count Dankula, warned that the bill was a new form of puritanism which would criminalise jokes and memes, and “restricts the human right of freedom of expression”.

    Mr Meechan told Breitbart London: “It outlaws many forms of expression through mediums ranging from online communications right up to live comedy performances, and it justifies this with the term ‘stirring up hatred’, something completely subjective and the legislation defines this term so poorly, if at all, and the term itself is completely without merit.”

    Well ... he's kinda got a point, you know. Really ...

    After all, if you have already criminalized speech at the pub, then how do you justify not criminalizing it at the dinner table, too?

    (Camel Nose, meet Tent. Tent, this is Camel Nose ...)

    "Concerns have been raised ..."

    Yeah, I'm sure they have been, for all the good they'll do.

    I'll bet that "concerns [had] been raised" over the 1986 Public Order Act, too.

    And where did that get you, except where you are right now?

    Maybe people need to stop raising concerns.

    Maybe they need to start raising torches and pitchforks ... and fence rails ... and buckets of tar ... and sacks of feathers ...

    I find it funny that wokeness has gotten to the point where if you are a republican, you are automatically a racist. How much farther can they expand the definition of racist?

    I don't think Trump's policies are all that good. BUT, I will say that he does give wokeness and political correctness a bigger middle finger than pretty much any politician out there. And he does it in a way that is so offensive to the left, that I find myself cheering him on. I hope he pisses them off even more. I'm not normally a resentful person but fukk wokeness.
