Then they came for your Halloween decorations

Chris offers up the latest intrusion on basic liberty by the Nanny Statists.

A Brooklyn homeowner hung a scarecrow by a rope from a tree in his yard. A local councilman decided it was “racist,” mainly because it reminded him of “lynching.” Maybe it was, maybe it wasn’t — several neighbors said the homeowner really gets into Halloween and meant no harm.

But in Brooklyn there is a Right To Not Be Offended.

“It’s unacceptable,” said Charles Barron (D-Brooklyn). “You ain’t speaking for this whole community because some people on this block came by and said it was offensive. They came and said it was offensive. It’s not a cool decoration.”

Police settled the dispute by removing the scarecrow figure from the tree.

Got that? It’s “offensive” so NYPD confiscated it. From private property. Without Due Process.

That my friends is the very definition of fascism.

Chris is right. Sure some folks might say, “come on, they are just decorations, no one’s rights are being violated”  but think of the principles at stake here. Those principles are highlighted in red above.

Another important point is that Charles Barron is a vile racist himself, just Goggle him, see what you find. It is always the Leftists like Barron who are trampling basic liberties for their own gain.
