This constitutes a hate crime?

FREMONT (KRON)– Fremont police are searching for two men who are accused of harassing a shop owner for displaying a rainbow flag above her building.

The store owner, Rae Steckler-Homorody, said the encounter left her shaken.

According to Steckler-Homorody, a man entered her antique store and was angry that the Pride flag was flying outside of her shop instead of the American flag.

    No, Fremont is 12 miles from where I grew up here in MI. Oh, not that same Fremont. The name of the town that I grew up in here in MI is Hesperia. Ring any bells? No, not that Hesperia, this one is a village of about 800 people. And why can’t people just leave each other the hell alone. Let the broad fly any damn flag she wants. If you don’t like it, don’t spend money in her place of business. No such thing as a hate crime, just being an asshole.

      We had a lesbian couple open a store here in our very small village a few years ago. just was fine with the village residents. The couple put up a no concealed carry sign on the front door within a week so anyone who carried or cared about it didn’t enter. They went broke in a year.
      Easy and civilized.

    What a couple of fucking idiots.
    I’m as much of a flag waver as anyone you’ll ever meet but I don’t wave it all the time. Sometimes I take Old Glory down from my flagpole and fly a different flag.
    The woman has the right to fly any flag she wants to on her property. It’s called freedom.

      Or as Groucho said, “I like cigars too,but I take them out of my mouth occasionally.”

    Flying the rainbow flag shouldn’t be a hate crime even if they are all a bunch of hate filled wackos.

  7. Betcha anything this is a fake hate crime, and she’s lying through her teeth. At least three quarters of the time, that’s the case.

    • that was my thought.

      Almost always the case. Or someone makes an offhand remark and it’s taken as persecution because everyone is so thin-skinned, anymore.

    • Dick Summers says:

      First thing I thought was that every antique store I’ve visited in the last twenty years has had CCTV. Multiple cameras. They can’t exist without it, too much theft. So, show me the tapes then we can talk about ‘hate’ crimes.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
