The Racist and Homophobic Yard Sale Posting You Won’t Believe
GAWKER ^ | July 18, 2011 | Brian Moylan

Posted on 07/18/2011 9:08:18 PM PDT by Beaten Valve

Imagine a bargain hunter's shock and dismay when responding to an ad on Craigslist listing a bunch of possessions for sale and then receiving an email announcing that gay people, Muslims, and illegal immigrants aren't allowed to purchase the wares. Read it for yourself.

Our tipster, who lives in the D.C. area, responded to an ad on Craigslist, which has been taken down, expressing interest in one of the items for sale. He received this mass email response peppered with casual racism and homophobia. I've highlighted the worst parts, but the whole thing is really amazingly awful.

"i have been a bit overwhelmed by the response, so have devised an easier way to disseminate information and pix of the items for sale for all of you who have contacted me. i've set up a publicly accessible facebook photo album for items for sale. please post any questions you have on the facebook page, this way you will also know if someone else has already expressed interest in an item and at what price or if the item is sold, as i will mark it so.

additionally, there will be a garage sale this sunday, 17 july 2011 from 11am - 7pm, for the items already pictured in the album and more. photos will continue to be added via the mobile pix facebook album, so please also check there as internet access has already been disconnected in the home and it's the only way to upload quickly and easily. all are welcome to the moving sale / garage sale except for LGBT people, illegal immigrants, and muslims, anyone else is warmly welcomed! no drama, terrorism, or illegal transactions with non-US citizens / illegal immigrants / people taking jobs away from people who belong and are legal in this country is desired.

So. Where is the “really amazingly awful” part. I’m missing something here.

“...except for LGBT people, illegal immigrants, and muslims”

I guess that I miss the problem too. If we allow restaurants to have a dress code, what’s the difference here? He’s just trying to uphold some standards.

Look at it in detail - there’s nothing about race or sex here, which are the two characteristics that people cannot control...so good. For LGBTs...they can come (since no one can tell), but if they start making out, then there will be a problem; for Illegals...they shouldn’t be here in the first place and don’t have a legal right to take one step on any US soil; and Muslims, like LGBTs can simply shave their beards or take off their bee-keeper uniforms...and no one would know the difference.

So it’s basically just a dress and behavior code...again, no different than an upscale restaurant.

I don’t see the problem. If we have freedom of association, don’t we have freedom of disassociation as well? Really, he didn’t ban anyone ... he simply suggested that certain folks might not be warmly welcomed.

Be careful, when muslims start shaving themselves they’re going into suicide-bomber mode!;)

Years ago, my Dad had a yard sale and three Chinese guys stole items from him. I don’t know their status, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they were illegal, and from Philly.

Also the use of the term “illegal immigrants” is suspicious. If I had to guess, someone is trying to pursue a vendetta against someone else and the whole garage sale thing is a farce. The PC robot trying to pull this off however just can’t stray from it’s programmed terminology.

I don't see a thing wrong with that it's an individual right to be able to refuse sales or service to anyone. The only downside is if some Federal SWAT team will kick in the door, confiscate everything for sale, murder the dog, and charge the seller with tax evasion for not having a permit of some sort. Holder himself may lead the raid.

The concept of Private Property Rights is foreign to the Left.

Look no further than San Francisco mandating that Income Property Owners not “discriminate” against renting to Ex Cons. Of course the first time one of those Ex Cons attacks the neighbor, who do think will end up getting sued?

What racism? I suppose this dick head means the illegal immigrant part, that isn’t racism, also muslim isn’t a race it is a religion, so therefore this ad contains no racist remarks. As for homophobia, this implies people are scared of queers, when the truth is heterosexuals,for the most part, are simply disgusted with them, no fear involved. I see no reason this person shouldn’t be able to see his stuff to whom ever he pleases, being a private citizen selling used items at a yard sale he has the right.

You've got that right. Most people, except for the left, use the term illegal aliens.

There was a “hate crime” in Redmond, Washington a few weeks ago. Seems someone left a post-it note on a muslim woman’s car when she went in with her young daughter to the store.

The note in english had something like:

“Muslims get out the U.S.” (something like this, and awkard and poor lettering) And below it was the arabic language written very nicely and with proper grammar.

Of course I showed it to my kids and they could answer correctly “Does this look like it is written by an old white guy, or by someone from another country?” The news never reported it like that though.

Hate Crime Hoaxes

Claremont Hate Crime Called Hoax
LA Times (FR thread) | March 17. 2004 | Joy Buchanan, Kristina Sauerwein and Stuart Silverstein

A week after a reported campus hate crime drew national attention, sparked protests and shut down the prestigious Claremont Colleges, police on Wednesday called the incident a hoax staged by a professor who slashed tires, shattered windows and spray-painted racist graffiti on her own car.

Claremont McKenna College psychology professor Kerri Dunn, who had told police that her car was vandalized as she spoke at a March 9 forum on racism, was identified by two eyewitnesses as the person who damaged the auto, authorities said Wednesday.

Professor Kerri Dunn vandalized her own car and then led "Stop The Hate" rallies on campus.

Classic Saul Alinsky/Cloward & Piven, Rules for Radicals tactics. Look for this stuff to escalate. If there isn’t a crisis, they’ll create it, hoping to start either a racial war or class war. And the ringleader sits in the White House, using his union thugs as operatives to do things like infiltrate Tea Party rallies, impersonate members and display racism for the cameras.
