this insidious hatred for people who don't vote how YOU want them to is disgusting


Well those people are destroying our country and the planet, so they deserve to be attacked as far as I'm concerned.

I don't think that law gets enforced in Florida, or at least it may be exclusive to your municipality. Anthony Daniel, who is a black man enjoys driving this truck around tampa. I saw it on Dale Mabry last time I went paintballing.



“Bob Buckhorn for Florida Governor,” the sign — replete with pictures of Buckhorn and lynched black men as well as a rebel flag and Nazi swastika — reads. “Every Nigger Vote Counts.”

But it gets weirder.
The man who owns the truck and sign, Anthony Daniel, is African-American. And the 64-year-old isn’t just trolling Buckhorn; he’s targeting Home Depot as well. His truck sign, using the store’s logo and trademark orange-stencil font, says “Home Depot or Nigger Depot.”

Daniel refused to say why he’s targeting the company and Buckhorn, a white Democrat who said he has yet to decide whether to run for governor in 2018.
“Anything about that car, you need to talk to Home Depot and call Buckhorn and get a comment on that and see what’s up,” Daniel told POLITICO Florida in a phone conversation. Asked why he’s angry with the two, Daniel laughed: “Angry? I’m smiling right now. Nobody’s angry.”
“I’m a cool dude, bro,” he said.


Buckhorn said he suspects Daniel, a City Hall fixture for almost 30 years, put his picture on the truck sign a few weeks ago in retaliation for the city slapping liens — now totaling $1.6 million — on a property on which he illegally built a house.
“Once he had code enforcement issues, he added my name to the truck a few weeks ago,” Buckhorn said.
Buckhorn said he has recently been getting calls about the racist sign and imagery from confused and sometimes upset constituents.
“Unfortunately, the First Amendment covers bigots of all ethnicities. Fortunately, the people in Tampa know this doesn’t reflect my relationship with the African-American community. But the standards for slander and libel for a public official are high. So there’s nothing I can really do.
The truck came to POLITICO Florida’s attention on Tuesday after a source spotted Daniel driving on Interstate 4 near Lakeland and snapped a picture.



I think it really depends on the county honestly. but it would likely just escalate and then be struck down at the State Supreme Court on grounds of the First amendment.

Smart, intelligent, intellectual and "educated" folk. Wouldn't put bumper sticker on their vehicles anyway. ..unless you're looking to make a "statement",.. "be a statement",... "or be made a statement", So much "education" roaming in the "public", so little wisdom. Meh! Such is what "news" stories are made from. Being disrespectful, you get disrespect. Kinda that "KARMA" bs the fruitcakes are always talking about. Only it sucks when it's them. What's for Next week? Who gets to be offended next?!!?? Stay tuned!

It is truly refreshing to get some honesty from the Marxist leftists.

Kudos to you!

Imagine having a Texas State "license plate" and driving through Commiefornia or the people's republic of New Jersey.... I could only imagine the "political" turmoil of that! It's time we get on the same page of right and wrong... Or learn to keep your "opinions" off of your bumper. They got what was comming to them. I'd be all for a national bumper sticker ban. Especially the kind that can do so much "ASSAULT" with very few words. Words hurt! They're "mightier than the sword"!
Lol! Words of "hate". This driver should be ashamed. I'm hoping they get "help" for their verbal "violence". Society can not endure with such "automatic verbal assault" language! So many things to fear! This driver is a loose canon!

Nah! ATS is just a place I come to read about leftist crying. I figure any idiot, left or right, that wears their emotions on their bumper? Pretty much gets what they're asking for. That's why "votes" are a "private" matter. Nobody likes to see a person spreading "hate". Although hate is a valid emotion, it should be kept private and used wisely. You know? Like during a civil war and other gentleman like behavior.

I have a bumper sticker that says "tattoos are for scumbags and sluts" but it's meant to be ironic as i have tattoos. The wife doesn't think it's very funny though . . .

A guy was murdered on a Chicago expressway during Rush Hour this evening. Maybe he had an offensive bumper sticker. Investigation is ongoing.

Vulgar language is such an interesting phenomenon. The way I see it, most 'cuss' words can be broken down into two categories: cursing and profanity. Cursing is blasphemy. It involves invoking the favor of deities to smite one's enemies, or using the name/image of a deity in a way that may besmirch the honor of said deity. Swearing falls into this category. Word magic, in short. Believing that words used in a certain combination can invoke supernatural effects is, if you'll forgive the profanity, #ing crazy. Which brings me to profanity. You see, certain words just aren't used by people of distinction. A person of pedigree does not say #, you see. They say defecate as a verb, and feces as a noun. They do not say #, no, the proper terminology is copulate, or if you're a person who believes cursing is a thing, fornicate. As a taboo, profanity is far more insidious than swearing. Unless one is willing to admit they believe class distinction is a right and proper social construct, they have no business declaring certain words 'polite' and other words 'vulgar.' That, my friends, would be hypocritical bull#. Bull#.

No, it doesn't.

If you say so.

So what you're saying is that a specified, granted appeal through SCOTUS for a specific instance that specifically states what I quoted earlier can be used in a more broad sense than the ruling intended?

No, that's not how it works. You are speaking on this thread as if you have some sort of experience and authority on the matter, but the things that you are saying show otherwise.



They couldn't find a legal reason to cite the driver for the display, and the DA disagreed with the disorderly conduct charges because it was not a prosecutable case.


That's fine, but cops don't always know the letter of the law, and DAs can be very cherry-picky with what cases they want to prosecute. If I were the DA, I wouldn't want to prosecute something so trivial, either, but nothing says that it would go to prosecution. If the LEOs would do their job and cite the vehicle in accordance with the law, the owners would either deal with the punishment of the ticket (which would probably just be that they had to remove the stickers, if the judge was reasonable) or they could choose to take it to court, in which case the presiding judge could throw it out.

But pretending as if they couldn't be cited is wrong on the LEO's part(s), from what is written into the law.



I quoted what you quoted.

You edited what I quoted, removing the pertinent part...like I already noted. Arguing against that is ridiculous.



"F the draft" is the same as "F Trump."

Both are political speech, contextually. The court would agree.

The issue isn't he "F**k Trump" part, it's the other part, and I've noted that specifically in this thread. Stop focusing on the wrong parts of quotes, as it reflects poorly on your ability to actually consider this issue in its proper context.

I don't care about your ability to do something.

Right, and that's fine, but it's causing you to wallow in willful ignorance, then. You have a relatively uneducated opinion on the matter, and I'm trying to bring




Those words are an ultimatum and a threat for nothing more than having words on a car. All because someone's political sensibilities were triggered.


Yes...or because there is a law that says they can't have "...F**K EVERYONE THAT VOTED FOR [TRUMP]" on their vehicle for the probably reasons noted in the law.

But yes, let's just focus on perceived hurt feelings and triggering, because that's the intelligent approach to this issue.



As I said, it is the result that matters. If a law produces a result where a citizen can be legally persecuted for exercising their rights then it is the law that is wrong.

And like I'll repeat for the last time before I give up on your willingness to understand my approach in this discussion: I'm not here concerning myself with the justness of the law in question, I'm here arguing that there is a law that applies to the situation.

If you want to disregard that and concern yourself with feelings and triggers, then I'm not interested in further discussion on this matter, as other people's feelings and triggers aren't my concern when it comes to discussing laws.

Some don't seem to have a problem with that.

They wanna slice up words and preach about how good they are at it in a court of law, and simply ignore the obvious appearance of political persecution going on here.

Right, because "appearance of political persecution" is all that matters in regards to laws and law enforcement.

No one is telling you to like the law--I don't even really like the law--but willfully ignoring that it is a valid law and is not the same thing as what was ruled against in the Cohen appeal is where you're not doing your argument any favors.
