        So why hasn't the person who vandalized a pro White sign and put "love" in hasn't gotten into trouble?

        What's so bad about pro White messages? I thought you guys in America had the best freedom of speech laws in the whole world, but it seems to have it's limits because the NWO is streching out it's tentacles even more. [thumbdown]

        I hate this anti White world.

        splashy;
        As usual,you're intentionally overlooking the real point.No one is arguing to be a racist.The argument is freedom of speech,the 1st amendment,and The Constitution.

        "like to be known as being racist"? We have a "task force" of nags,emboldened by morons like you,and Jonez21,the self proclaimed 'reasonable human being',(Kinda like the progressives/liberals claiming common sense) who keep on,and on,and on,about how guilty and ashamed THEY/YOU THINK we should be...GARBAGE!

        I have,and will always refuse to apologize for the actions of anyone other than my children and myself.And my children are old enough,mature enough,and intelligent enough to make their own decisions,and apologize for themselves,if THEY think it's necessary.

        What's "sad",is people who are willing,even anxious,to keep apologizing for something they were not responsible for in the first place.Or to expect the same from ANYONE/EVERYONE else.But,if being SORRY somehow pleases you,you're welcome to accept the 'guilt' YOU think I should feel,also...

        So the media is just starting to report black on white violence. Maybe if Chad gets to be a victim of the knockout game his eyes will open up.

        So, you folks that like the sign like Harrison to be known as being racist? That's just sad.

        Only a misdemeanor? At the very least this (where is the LOVE?) perp should be made to CLEAN it off and do some community service around town. Preferably wearing a sandwich sign announcing: "I am a vandal and I don't believe in anyone's 1st Amendment rights nor their right to private property. What a HATER he is! And this race relations board ( who set them up to be queen dictator?) are the worst kind of BULLIES and hypocrites. Go back to where ya came from!! Pathetic muckrakers that ya are.

        The guy was arrested just as he should have been. I would hate to think the people of Harrison would condone someone coming to my house and vandalizing my property.

        Kudos to Chad. Yeah, it was against the law----but as a reasonable human being, it's hard to blame the guy.

        Junior:

        You seem to have a problem with free speech.

        Who are you to determine what words can be written? You make the USA look so bad.

        Typical criminal anti-White Orwellian mentality.

        Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

        ASIA FOR THE ASIANS, AFRICA FOR THE AFRICANS, WHITE COUNTRIES FOR EVERYBODY!
        Anti-Whites say there should be no White Countries✓
        Anti-Whites say there should be no White Towns✓
        Anti-Whites say there should be no White Neighborhoods✓
        Anti-Whites say there should be no White Anything✓
        Anti-Whites say there should be no White People✓
        Immigration = Colonization – “Diversity” = Fewer White Children
        “Multiculturalism” = WHITE GENOCIDE
        Anti-racist is a >codeword< for anti-White

        Typical for liberal behavior if your opinion varies from ours we will erase it. Oh and of course we will call you names. Guess criminal acts don't make a town look bad.
