Meh. Boring neckbeard with no production sense.

Daisy whatever can say anything she wants about Trump even if it's not well informed. But neckbeards with youboob channels are less interesting than watching mushrooms grow.

... Last week, Berkeley's Peace and Justice Commissioner Hatem Bazian called on locals to avoid purchasing Israeli feta cheese.

"Trader Joe's is having Israeli Feta on its shelves! One more reason to stop shopping at the store," Bazian, who lectures on Islam at UC Berkeley, wrote on his Facebook page.

However, the call for boycott backfired after Joe Zevuloni, an Israeli living in Florida who heads the "Israeli Army of Publicity," met the call for boycott with a call of his own: "Urgent call-up to publicity soldiers: I need you to lend me a hand here."

"This Israel-hating anti-Semitic professor from UC Berkeley tagged Linda Sarsour in his post and called on everyone to boycott Trader Joe's supermarket chain because it sells Israeli feta cheese.

"Go to his page and don't forget to tell him thank-you for the fact that in his merit, we'll all buy specifically from a brand that sells Israeli products. Tag the Population and Immigration Authority in your comments and help me show him Israel just in Google. Then "like" this post and share, if you're with me. Am Israel hai (literally: the nation of Israel lives on)!"

Zevuloni's call worked: Within hours, pro-Israel customers had emptied several Trader Joe's branches of their Israeli feta cheese, and moved on to purchasing other Israeli products instead ...
Imagine having a "Peace and Justice Commissioner" ... imagine that zer name is "Hatem" !!! :D

Then you would be imaging the real world !! :D :D :D

An Iowa man has been sentenced to 15 years in jail for burning the poofs flag...
NEVADA, Iowa -- A man has been imprisoned for burning an LGBTQ flag that was flying at a church in central Iowa.

Adolfo Martinez, 30, of Ames, was sentenced Wednesday to 15 years for the hate crime of arson and given a year for reckless use of explosives or fire and 30 days for harassment. The sentences are to be served consecutively, Story County court records said.

A jury convicted Martinez in November. He'd been arrested in June.

He's said he tore down the flag that had been hanging from the United Church of Christ in Ames and burned it because he opposes homosexuality.

Seems a bit of a "liberal" interpretation of arson, and I hope the "hate crime" part was not somehow a central aspect of the conviction. Am I not free to burn an American flag in a symbolic act? Am I not free to burn ANY flag in a symbolic act?

If in fact, "hate crime" aspect of it was a central part of the conviction and sentencing then this is definitely a major step back in terms of freedom of expression. If I make a YT video in which I burn a Nazi flag in a perfectly safe and legal manner (in adherence to all local ordinances pertaining to fires) and express that I'm doing it as a symbolic expression of m HATRED of Nazism, racism, fascism, and totalitarianism in general, would THAT be an impeachable offense?

If the way in which he burned it really constituted "arson" and "reckless use of fire" then sure, maybe was guilty. 15 years seems pretty stiff even then though.

I agree that the charges sounded excessive.

I don't believe that anyone should be prosecuted "solely" on the basis of a hate crime.
I might be OK with hate crime charges being "piggybacked" onto some other charge.

For the incident cited in the article, it would appear that Adolfo Martinez stole the flag from the church.

I believe that the punishment is excessive because it sounds as if the punishment for the "hate crime" exceeds the likely punishment for theft of a flag (probably a misdemeanor because of its value) and simple arson.

For example:
Bob the KKK member assaults an African-American and states that they did so because the person was black.

Firstly, charge Bob with assault, and then perhaps, if the circumstances are warranted, add a hate crime charge to it.
But under no circumstance should the punishment for the hate crime offense exceed the punishment for the "base crime".
Am I not free to burn an American flag in a symbolic act? Am I not free to burn ANY flag in a symbolic act?
Sure, you can burn your own flag (one that you purchased.
However if you stole that flag from someone else and then burned it, you are in the wrong.

I'm in agreement. Stealing the flag and burning it: theft, arson (I suppose), dangerous use of fire . . . the "hate crime" part of it seems irrelevant to me, and I fear that the actual punishment, if not the determination of guilt might have been swayed into a more severe outcome based on the notion that "hate crimes" exist, much less that they should be punishable. It is a wholly undemocratic and unwieldy concept from my standpoint. How do you categorize one thing as "hate" and another not? Is all hate equally repellent? Can I not hate Nazis? Is that also a "hate crime?"
