Signs of Hate

May 30, 2009

Across the heartland, beautiful vistas of working-class prosperity have been marred with messages of bigotry. Barns and churches, once symbols for a more honest and wholesome life, now carry the mark of extremists. While the AVL understands that these murals and signs are the work of a few depraved individuals and don’t express the broader beliefs held in rational society, we cannot allow such flagrant propaganda to go unchallenged.

The sites posted here have been catalogued by the AVL, which has submitted a request to the Senate Committee on Vampire Affairs to have them classified as hate speech and dealt with accordingly. Until more anti-discrimination laws are passed, however, the defense we have against these crimes is vocal members like you, out in your communities, preventing ideas like these from taking root.
