Jews Outraged over “Hipster Hitler” Comic

A group of Jews have threatened to buy and shred all copies of a comic book, describing the authors’ mocking of Hitler and hipsters as “anti-Semitic” and “sick”. 


Members of London Stands with Israel, a campaign group set up to defend Israel and Jews from attacks, have threatened to boycott and protest outside stores selling the comic Hipster Hitler, and have specifically targeted a Jewish-owned comic store in Camden Town. The book, which contains a series of cartoon strips taking a light-hearted look at both hipster culture and the exploits of the Third Reich, has proved popular.

The New York authors insist it is “not written with the intent of offending people” but provides “a new way of disliking Hitler and laughing at the ‘lazy dictator’ he was [while] taking a few digs at a contemporary subculture of urban, middle-class youth that fetishise the ‘authentic’ and conform to non-conformism”.


The comic depicts the Führer wearing ironic T-shirts with slogans like “Death Camp for Cutie” and “Aryan Microjewery”, and show the tyrant struggling with his advisers as a constantly miffed and sulking hipster.

Shania Angel, 23, of London Stands with Israel, accused the authors of “making Hitler cute” and said they should be “ashamed”. She said: “The book is a disgrace and should be banned.

“T-shirts are now being sold of Hipster Hitler – it’s turning Hitler into a cute and trendy character.

“Anti-Semitism has skyrocketed recently and we shouldn’t be selling books like this.

“We should boycott shops that sell it, we should protest outside their stores and do everything we can to make sure these aren’t being sold.”

Ilana Katz, also of London Stands with Israel, said while the group would probably not burn the books, it would take drastic action to make sure people don’t read them.

The 23-year-old singer from Northwood told the Ham&High: “If we can’t get shops to stop selling copies we’ll buy and shred them all.

“Since when was it okay to promote Hitler as a cool person?”

The activists say they plan to protest outside Mega City Comics in Inverness Street – a Jewish-owned comic book store and one of Camden Town’s longest running independent shops.

Amazon, Waterstones and other book stores also stock the comic.

Martin Kravetz, owner of Mega City Comics, said: “While it’s perhaps close to the knuckle, I don’t find Hipster Hitler offensive.

“I’m Jewish myself and if it was in any way making light of the Holocaust I would remove it.

“I’m not in the business to cause people offence, but any book shop will carry books that some people may find offensive.

“The book doesn’t contain references to the Holocaust. It’s a satirical piece, making jibes at the expense of both Hitler and hipsters.

“Our customer base is predominantly adult, and I think they can identify a satirical piece for what it is.”


Families outraged as prosecutors pass on charging Chicago cop who fatally shot mentally ill teen and bystander

The families of a mentally ill teen and his neighbor blasted prosecutors’ decision to not charge the Chicago police officer who fatally shot their loved ones.

The state attorney’s office Friday afternoon said no criminal charges would be brought against Officer Robert Rialmo who shot and killed Quitonio LeGrier, 19, and Bettie Jones, 55, the day after Christmas in 2015, the Chicago Tribune reported.

Officials said it couldn’t be proved the officer didn’t believe he or his partner were in “imminent danger” from LeGrier, who was wielding a bat when he was shot.

“There is absolutely not justification for the use of excessive force in that instance,” attorney Larry Rogers Jr., who represents Jones’ family, said. “Bettie Jones was at her home. She was in her house. She was doing everything right that day … To suggest this is a justifiable shooting is to ignore the objective evidence.”

HEAR IT: Quintonio LeGrier dialed 911 three times

Police on Dec. 26, 2015 responded to four 911 calls — three by LeGrier and the other by his father — for a domestic disturbance. LeGrier, a sophomore at Northern Illinois University, was staying with his father during the winter break.

Jones, who lived beneath them, answered the door when officers arrived and pointed them toward the correct apartment, but LeGrier was already coming down the stairs with an aluminum baseball bat.

“As the officers walked backward down the stairs, Rialmo’s partner tapped Rialmo on his back and told him to look out,” according to a report from the attorney’s office cited by the newspaper. “Rialmo drew his service weapon and fired eight shots toward LeGrier while backing down the front staircase.”

Jones was fatally struck once in the chest while LeGrier was shot six times.

His mother, Janet Cooksey, said she didn’t understand why the officer wasn’t charged, while his father labeled the decision “totally unacceptable” and “unfair,” the Tribune reported.

“Quitinio did the right thing. He called for help,” Cooksey said. “He called for help not one time, not two, but three (times.) He called for help to get shot… and yet this cop is not going to jail?”

Rialmo both defended his actions and expressed his regret.

“I have always known in my heart that I did not do anything wrong,” the officer said in a statement shared by his attorney. “I wish that Mr. LeGrier would have been able to get help and treatment for his mental illness and that the situation did not escalate to the point where I had no choice but to use deadly force.”

He added that he does not expect the loved ones of those he killed to forgive what he did.

“Being right does not make it any less of a tragedy that two people are dead and I was the cause of their deaths,” Rialmo said. “I will have to live with that for the rest of my life.”

The U.S. Department of Justice in a recent report said the deaths of LeGrier and Jones “laid bare the failures in CPD’s crisis response systems,” and noted issues including the dispatcher’s inability to identify LeGrier as mentally ill and Rialmo and his partner’s lack of proper crisis intervention technique, the Tribune reported.

The attorney’s office in its review of the case said a conviction would require proving Rialmo did not believe he and his partner were in danger, even though LeGrier had a bat — which is considered to be a deadly weapon — when the shooting occurred, according to the news paper.

“The uncontrverted evidence from the investigation into the shooting establishes that LeGrier was armed with an aluminum baseball bat when officers encountered him,” the state’s attorney’s office said in a statement, “and LeGrier wielded the bat in a threatening manner while in their close proximity.”

Outraged US Jewish leaders: UN vote tarnishes Obama’s legacy

WASHINGTON — Major US Jewish organizations declared that US President Barack Obama had undermined his legacy on Israel and bitterly criticized the administration’s decision to allow a resolution calling for a halt to all Israeli settlement activity to pass in the United Nations Security Council.

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL), which had tussled in recent weeks with President-elect Donald Trump’s pick for ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, offered a full-throated condemnation of the Security Council resolution and of the Obama administration’s decision to abstain from voting.

ADL CEO Jonathan A. Greenblatt stated that the organization was “outraged over the US failure to veto this biased and unconstructive UNSC resolution on Israel.”

Greenblatt bemoaned that the resolution “will only encourage further Palestinian intransigence vis-à-vis direct negotiations with Israel in favor of unilateral, one-sided initiatives.”

“The Obama Administration repeatedly stated that a solution to the conflict cannot be imposed on the parties but must be achieved directly by the parties themselves,” Greenblatt concluded. “It is deeply troubling that this biased resolution appears to be the final word of the Administration on this issue.”

The ADL was far from the only Jewish organization to assert that Obama’s legacy was changed by this decision conducted in the last month of an eight-year administration.

“It is tragic that the Administration chose to mar its legacy of support for the Jewish State and set back the prospects for Israeli-Palestinian peace,” wrote the Jewish Federations of North America in a rare critique of a US administration, recalling that in the past “President Obama has consistently supported Israel’s right to self-defense and affirmed that America has an “iron clad commitment to make sure Israel is secure.”

The umbrella organization noted that “Jewish Federations across North America are deeply disappointed that the United States abstained from today’s vote on the one-sided, anti-Israel resolution that was passed by the UN Security Council today,” adding that “the Administration’s decision undermined a core principle of American foreign policy that has been embraced by Democratic and Republican Administrations for decades: that the only route to a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is through direct negotiations between the parties.”

The Orthodox Union issued a similar admonishment.

“The Orthodox Union is gravely disappointed with this decision by President Obama,” the organization complained. “Over the course of his presidency, Mr. Obama repeatedly reassured American Jews, and others who care for the security and welfare of Israel, that his commitment to American support for Israel’s security was “unshakable.””

“By allowing this resolution to pass in the waning weeks of his Administration, President Obama has undermined his legacy in that regard,” the organization added, describing the US action as “an unprecedented and deeply disturbing break from the past.”

The leaders of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations condemned the administration’s actions. “There is no justification or explanation that validates the United States failure to veto the one-sided, offensive resolution adopted by the Security Council today,” wrote Conference Chairman Stephen Greenberg and CEO Malcolm Hoenlein. “The United States vote will be seen as a betrayal of the fundamentals of the special relationship that will nevertheless continue to mark the close ties between the peoples of the two countries.”

The American Jewish Committee’s CEO David Harris also noted that “the Administration’s decision, for the first time in eight years, not to block an anti-Israel measure at the UN Security Council is profoundly disturbing.”

Harris bemoaned that “encouraging the misguided Palestinian strategy of doing everything possible to avoid Israel, while accumulating hostile statements against Israel at the UN and other international organizations, has been counterproductive to achieving a sustainable peace that will benefit both Israelis and Palestinians.”

Left-wing organizations, however, offered strong support for the administration’s move.

Americans for Peace Now described the resolution as “pro-Israel in the deepest sense of the term, supporting Israel’s existence and security, and standing against those who would sacrifice both at the altar of settlements, for an ideological, expansionist agenda,” and said that it “commends the Obama Administration’s decision to stand with all past US presidents since 1967 in maintaining US opposition to settlements, and to reaffirm longstanding US positioning and language in the Security Council on this issue.”

J Street also issued a statement welcoming the US decision.

The resolution, the organization said, “is consistent with longstanding bipartisan American policy, which includes strong support for the two-state solution, and clear opposition to irresponsible and damaging actions, including Palestinian incitement and terror and Israeli settlement expansion and home demolitions.”

J Street responded to threats made by president-elect Donald Trump following the vote suggesting that he would change the US stance toward its UN commitments.

“We urge all actors, including the incoming US administration, to recognize that this resolution is now the benchmark set by the international community and must be respected as such,” J Street warned. “Steps to abrogate or ignore it would not only damage Israel’s future and the prospects for a two-state solution, but undermine American interests and standing in the world.”


Updated | As Oklahoma’s attorney general, Scott Pruitt joined several other states in suing the Environmental Protection Agency over its Clean Power Plan, an Obama administration policy aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions from power plants and factories. Pruitt has also sued the EPA, along with officials from other states, over its plan to regulate the fossil fuel industry’s methane emissions. On his LinkedIn page, Pruitt says he is “a leading advocate against the EPA’s activist agenda.”

And he’s now President-elect Donald Trump’s expected pick to head the EPA, according to The New York Times and The Washington Post (which have a good run-down of Pruitt’s record).

Environmentalists are largely outraged over the move, which signals that Trump is serious about dismantling Obama’s environmental and climate legacy.

The appointment is “like putting an arsonist in charge of fighting fires,” Michael Brune, executive director of the Sierra Club, said in a statement.

The head of the EPA has to be confirmed by the Senate, so there’s a chance that lawmakers reject Trump’s nomination.

Here’s a list of reactions from environmental organizations and prominent environmentalists to Pruitt’s appointment.

The Sierra Club [in full]:

“Having Scott Pruitt in charge of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is like putting an arsonist in charge of fighting fires. He is a climate science denier who, as Attorney General for the state of Oklahoma, regularly conspired with the fossil fuel industry to attack EPA p rotections.

“Nothing less than our children’s health is at stake. Scott Pruitt, whose own bio describes him as ‘ a leading advocate against the EPA’s activist agenda ’ cannot be trusted to head the EPA, an agency charged with protecting all Americans from threats to their water, air, and health. We strongly urge Senators, who are elected to represent and protect the American people, to stand up for families across the nation and oppose this nomination.”

Fred Krupp, president of the Environmental Defense Fund:

“Scott Pruitt has built his political career by trying to undermine EPA’s mission of environmental protection. He is a deeply troubling choice to head the agency that protects the clean air all Americans breathe and the clean water we drink. Our country needs—and deserves—an EPA Administrator who is guided by science, who respects America’s environmental laws, and who values protecting the health and safety of all Americans ahead of the lobbying agenda of special interests.”

Rhea Suh, president of the Natural Resources Defense Council (via WaPo):

“Over the past five years, Pruitt has used his position as Oklahoma’s top prosecutor to sue the EPA in a series of attempts to deny Americans the benefits of reducing mercury, arsenic, and other toxins from the air we breathe; cutting smog that can cause asthma attacks; and protecting our wetlands and streams.”

Michael Oppenheimer, climate scientist, Princeton University: “EPA is a science-based agency.  Pruitt gives the impression of disbelieving the scientific consensus on climate change.  If that is the case, appointing him as administrator would be highly inappropriate.  I hope the Senate examines his views on this issue closely.”

Naomi Oreskes, professor of the history of science, Harvard University: “Carbon dioxide is a pollutant, and that has been acknowledged by policy-makers since the 1960s.  Climate change caused by carbon dioxide is now causing measurable harms. Mr Pruitt, in defiance of science, economics, and the Supreme Court, proposes to place the interests of the oil and gas industry over the interests of the American people. We all believe in freedom, but, as the philosopher Isaiah Berlin noted, freedom for wolves means death for lambs.  Right now it looks like a lot of lambs are about to be slaughtered.”

David Levine, CEO and co-founder of the American Sustainable Business Council (an organization of “more than 250,000 business owners, executives and investors from a wide range of industries”):

“With Scott Pruitt’s selection as administrator, Trump lays out the welcome mat for polluters at EPA. It also proves that the president-elect is more concerned about the fossil fuel industry and other polluters than with growing the economy and creating U.S. jobs through investments in clean energy. We will give other countries major competitive advantages over us if we fail to lead in building a clean energy industry here at home.

“This nomination also demonstrates a critical disregard for the impacts on businesses and the economy from climate change and extreme weather events… Mr. Pruitt has been a consistent critic of regulations that require industries to account for the costs they impose on the environment, often justifying his position based on flawed science. Climate scientists nearly unanimously find the opposite is true. Mr. Pruitt’s selection signals a roll back  of policies that have stimulated innovation and progress.”

Ken Kimmell, president of the Union of Concerned Scientists: “Scott Pruitt is the wrong choice to run the EPA. The [agency] plays an absolutely vital role in enforcing long-standing policies that protect the health and safety of Americans, based on the best available science. Pruitt has a clear record of hostility to the EPA’s mission, and he is a completely inappropriate choice to lead it… the U.S. Senate has the responsibility of approving the EPA administrator. It’s this simple: if Senators take seriously their job of protecting the public, they must vote no on Pruitt.”

Benjamin Schreiber, Friends of the Earth‘s climate and energy program director:

“By appointing Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt to head the Environmental Protection Agency, Donald Trump has made it clear that he intends to wage war on clean air and clean water. Trump has also put our climate in peril and shown he is out of step with the American people.

“As the Attorney General, Scott Pruitt did the bidding of the oil and gas industry and fought many of the laws he will now be tasked to enforce. He helped Big Oil turn Oklahoma into an Earthquake zone. 

Bill McKibben, environmentalist and author:


Kerry Emanuel, atmospheric scientist, MIT: “This appointment is consistent with Mr. Trump’s plan to roll back efforts to confront a clear and present danger to our children [e.g. climate change] in favor of more profit for the one percent today.”

James Rubin, environmental lawyer and a partner at the international law firm Dorsey & Whitney:

“The nomination of [Pruitt] will certainly raise alarms for environmental advocates and please foes of federal carbon regulation, given the positions he has taken his state on recent EPA regulations of power plants and oil and gas development. But these positions are rooted in issues of federalism—the limits of federal authority over matters some consider more appropriate for state regulation. It remains to be seen what his policies and perspectives are on the myriad of issues related to human health and the environment that Congress has tasked EPA with handling.”

Sam Adams, director of the World Resources Institute (via Reason):

“The selection of Attorney General Pruitt, who has consistently questioned climate science and actively fought EPA’s ability to reduce emissions, raises deeply troubling questions. The critical issue is whether EPA will continue to play its vital role in protecting people’s health and safety in communities across the country.”

David Arkush, managing director of the climate program at Public Citizen, a consumer rights group (via Reason):

“Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt is a terrible choice to run the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Pruitt is cozy with the oil and gas industry and treats the EPA like an enemy. Both of those positions put him at odds with what the American people want and what’s best for the country.”

Shaughnessy Naughton, board president of 314 Action (a group that champions Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, or STEM, education): “Putting Attorney General Pruitt in charge of the EPA is like giving the keys to the henhouse to a self-proclaimed wolf… Pruitt’s actions as Oklahoma’s Attorney General already show that he is not interested in transparency when it comes to protecting the energy lobby. The people informing Mr. Trump’s decisions on the pressing issue of climate change should be those who have studied the issue.”

Trip Van Noppen, president of Earthjustice:

“Every American should be appalled that President-elect Trump just picked someone who has made a career of being a vocal defender for polluters to head our Environmental Protection Agency…

“He’s been so cozy with polluter lobbyists that he let them draft comments about federal pollution limits, changed a few words, then copied it onto his official Oklahoma Attorney General stationery and submitted it as the comments of the people of Oklahoma. He has fought Environmental Protection Agency pollution limits on toxic substances like soot and mercury that put us all at risk for increased cancer, childhood asthma and other health problems. He falsely claims that fracking doesn’t contaminate drinking water supplies…

“Earthjustice strongly believes that President-elect Trump should retract this announcement or the Senate should reject this nomination. The head of the Environmental Protection Agency should be making sure that our air is clean to breathe and our water is safe to drink, not working to make sure polluters make more money.”

Dutch Jews ‘outraged’ by anti-gay fliers citing the Torah

AMSTERDAM (JTA) — Dutch police are considering whether to indict for incitement to hatred three men who passed out fliers in Amsterdam condemning homosexuality, citing it “being forbidden by Judaism, Christianity and Islam.”

The men, aged 29 to 39, surrendered themselves to police after officers questioned a man whose car the suspects said they borrowed to distribute the fliers, the NOS broadcaster reported last week. The officers reached the car owner after reviewing footage from security cameras of cars parked in the area near the time that the fliers began showing up in mailboxes.

NOS said police did not release any details about the suspects, except that they do not appear to belong to any radical Muslim groups. The men said during investigation that they wanted to “start a discussion” on homosexuality.

The Central Jewish Board of the Netherlands, the umbrella group of the country’s Jewish organizations, said in a statement several days after the discovery of the fliers that it disagrees with their anti-gay message and regrets the citing of Judaism by the people responsible for distributing them.

The text of the fliers quotes a passage from the Christian Bible and another from the Torah condemning homosexuality. The latter, from Leviticus, reads: “‘Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable.”

According to the fliers, children raised by homosexuals are likelier to be sexually abused and homosexuals are likelier to commit suicide. They feature a picture of a rabbi wearing a prayer shawl, an imam and a priest.

Central Jewish Board Chairman Ron van der Wieken said his organization was “outraged” by the “discriminatory fliers,” which he said the community “strongly rejects,” adding it is “full of glaring lies.”

UK veterans outraged Churchill’s home converted to Nazi HQ for new movie (GOOD!!!)


The late, great former prime minister of Britain Winston Churchill, a man known as much for his love of good whisky as his disdain for the Third Reich, is ironically having his ancestral home converted into Adolf Hitler’s command center for a new Hollywood film, The Telegraph reported Friday.

Huge swastika flags and banners can be seen draped all across Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire, according to The Telegraph, which will be used as Nazi headquarters in the newest Transformers film The Last Knight.

But the news is not going over so smoothly with veterans in the UK, who are expressing outrage at Tinseltown’s use of the historic property, calling it appalling and “disrespectful.”

“I know it’s a film, but it’s symbolically disrespectful to Churchill,” ex-commander of British forces in Afghanistan Colonel Richard Kemp told London based tabloid newspaper The Sun earlier this week.

“He will be turning in his grave,” added Kemp.

Member of Veteran’s Association UK Tony Hayes said that remaining World War Two veterans “will be appalled by this.”

Social media also reacted contentiously to the development, with one Twitter user saying: “Quite appalled, hear Blenheim Palace has been turned into a HQ for Hitler for a film, sorry, Sir Winston Churchill’s home, isn’t the place.”

Churchill himself is buried on the grounds of Blenheim Palace, which is currently occupied by the 12th Duke of Marlborough Jamie Spencer-Churchill, 60, who reportedly rented out the property to keep up with the estate’s high maintenance expenditures.

Maryland Student’s Essay About Exterminating Black People Has Parents Outraged

maryland school

Many parents and students at a Maryland school are speaking out after a maryland schoolstudent wrote an essay that many are calling racist.

Parents and students who attend North County High School are upset at a satirical essay that calls for the extermination of black people. The student was writing as part of an assignment to mimic Jonathan Swift’s satirical “A Modest Proposal”, according to The Washington Post.

“A young healthy child well nursed,” Swift wrote, “is at a year old a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee or a ragout.”

The student’s essay said a response to racism in America is to send African-Americans to the Sahara desert to be killed. That essay was followed up by a racially offensive term about African-Americans written in the school’s bathroom.

“It was very wrong. It was inappropriate and it was offensive,” said one student, according to CBS Baltimore.

One black parent took the side of the student who’d written the essay, however.

“I don’t fault this young man, he met the rubric of the assignment,” a man at the meeting told the attendees.

“You are not in the school, you don’t know what we go through,” another student yelled.

Julie Cares, principal of North County, responded to the concerns of parents in a statement.

“Just as one could argue that the content of Swift’s piece was ill-advised and insensitive, such is the case with the content of the student’s piece here,” Cares wrote. “I want you to know emphatically that North County High School embraces and supports all students, with no exceptions. Conversations around sensitive topics such as this, however, are critical to our growth as a school and, ultimately, as a society.”

Jews Outraged as Man is Caught Urinating and Making a Nazi Salute at Czech Concentration Camp

Police say there is little that can be done against a man who made a NS salute while urinating on a memorial in a former concentration camp.

Photos of Zdenek Appl, 24, urinating next to the Star of David at the Theresienstad concentration, were handed to Czech police by a “disgusted” former friend.

But the force investigated have admitted it may be difficult to take legal action against Appl, as “promoting Nazi ideology” is not illegal in the Czech Republic like it is in neighbouring Germany or Austria.

The pictures were taken Appl was visiting the former camp, situated in the north of the Czech Republic close to the German border with Jiri Larva, 25.

Jiri said he decided to hand the evidence over to the police after he was appalled by his former friend’s action, who was allegedly drunk at the time.

‘I knew that he had some questionable ideas but when he started urinating alongside star David and then stood on the wall making a Nazi salute I just felt it was going too far, as I handed the photos in to the police’, he said.

‘I haven’t had anything to do with him since but I reckon he should be punished for what he was up to.’

Czech media has reported that Appl has a tattoo on his arm with the words ‘Arbeit macht frel’ – meaning ‘work makes you free’, the same chilling saying that was put above the entrance to Auschwitz and other concentration camps.

They also state that Appl runs a Facebook page full of arguments promoting National Socialist ideology – he but later denied he believed in the far-right views.

After speaking with the media by telephone, Appl added that “he is not a Nazi and said his tattoo had been removed since the pictures were taken”.

The manager of the Theresienstadt monument and head of Prague Jewish Community Jan Munk said he found the images despicable.

He said: ‘It is disgusting. We are reporting it to police as well and we will see.

‘I really doubt that somebody would not decry the pictures.’

People Are OUTRAGED That This Deli Is Celebrating “White History Month!”


We hope this sign is tongue-and-cheek, but maybe it isn’t. Jim Boggess, the owner of Jimbo’s Deli in Flemington, New Jersey, posted a sign which reads, “CELEBRATE YOUR WHITE HERITAGE IN MARCH, WHITE HISTORY MONTH.” Boggess said, “No matter what you are — Muslim, Jewish, black, white, gay, straight — you should be proud of what you are. I shouldn’t have to feel bad about being white.”

Does this offend you? It offended some of his neighbors:

But a neighbor and former customer, Bhakti Curtis, who is bi-racial, doesn’t accept that. He said the sign, is “mocking Black History Month,” especially the way the T was crossed in “WHITE.” The cross piece was not right at the top, it was lower down, in a style used by the Ku Klux Klan and other white-power groups, Curtis said. That cross piece of the T has since been broadened to make it a more traditional, if top-heavy, capital T.

On March 3, Curtis saw the sign, told Boggess it offended him, but got no satisfaction. So he filed a complaint with the Flemington police. Detective Sgt. William Svard said Cpl. Louis Hribik’s report indicates that Curtis said the sign is “racist,” that he felt harassed by it and wanted to know what would be done about it.

Hribik went to Jimbo’s, looked at the sign, spoke with Boggess and decided that the sign wasn’t derogatory or racist and that no further police action was needed.

Boggess agrees with that assessment and believes he’s lawfully exercising his right of free expression. He keeps a copy of the Bill of Rights in his establishment for ready reference.

He said reaction to the sign has been mixed. Lots of people have been photographing his sign with their phones and giving him a thumbs-up. But others have objected, including someone from the Business Improvement District who asked him to take it down, he said.


Maybe America should stop dedicating months to races, and treat everyone with respect during ALL 12 months.
