Full story: TwinCities.com

A white separatist drew complaints from neighbors and a visit from law enforcement officers after erecting a snowman shaped like a member of the Ku Klux Klan on his front lawn.

Big deal. How about we all build snowmen depicting all religions? Oh that's right, you can stomp all over the Christians, but weep when it's any other religion. It's called FREE SPEECH!!

Sounds like he has the same spineless overly sensitive neighbors like me. What the heck id "offensive to the senses". His neighbors should mind their own business, if they don't like what they see, then look somewhere else. His property is his castle.

So if he was making a Political statement would he be ok?
I might disagree with the guy, but it's his property.. and he wasn't harming anyone..

When did it become against the law to offend someone?

if this idiot who builds offensive snowmen does'nt like what america is and what america is trying to accomplish with desgragation, then maybe he could go build his snowman in say, afganistan or north korea, because we as americans are tired of putting up with these so called aryan idiots who contribute absolutely nothing to the american body/infrastructure designed to give a positive influence on our children so they dont grow up with a mental illness such as racism, because trying to hurt/burden others with a slighted philosophy can only be explained as having a mental defect in their d.n.a.

and if they dont like america, then they should get the fuck out! canadas' about an hour north of you, maybe there they'll agree with your mental illnesses!

Doubt he's broken any laws, unless Idaho has one on the books against being an ignorant a-hole.

This nut case needs to be locked up for the good of society in general, and for his community in particular.

"Sorry.....I wouldnt want him anywhere near me.

You dont have to see his garbage to be affected by it...that stuff will draw rats, mice, and every other form of rodent and vermin you can imagine."

Freedom of speech does not extend to helping the spread of rodents and pestilence...while I dont have to agree with a snoman and a noose...I dont have to tolerate property next to mine that harbors rodents and disease.

One is a public perception issue, the other a matter of public health.
