"Patently unfair"? Maybe. But he and his cohorts are being patently unfair to the existing residents by trying to turn their town into something they never wanted.

If he had control of the town I wonder what laws he'd pass to restrict others. Funny how he has the freedom to protest others actions isn't it?

"Patently Unfair"---and possibly unconstitutional but I for one won't lose any sleep over it.

Let's be very careful cheering for laws enacted to quell political views. The words Muslim, Jew, Libertarian, Wicca, and more can be inserted if this law is constitutional.

How is this action any different from when the folks in the south (and some in the north) manipulated the process to keep "Those coloreds out!!!"?

When did zoning ordinances become unconstitutional? You have a house in the city limits, you hook it up to water and sewer and don't leave your trash, toys and used furniture in the yard. Easy.

Although I have not seen the law as written, it most likely will be constitutional - time, place, manner restrictions all enjoy protection, as long as this law applies equally to everyone, he can only weep into his white hood, cause the law is on the side of the city.

On further thought, I realized that I frequently hear white people who don't like minorities and immigrants complain that "we were here first, and if they don't want to do things our way, then they can go back to Mexico and Africa". Seems to me that the older residents of this town are just applying the exact same logic to the new white supremacists. They were there first, and if the newcomers don't like their rules, they can go back to whatever trailer park they crawled out of.

White supremacy is child abuse, call the county.
