Controversy over "No Hate" Snowman in Catonsville

16 posts in this topic

From WJZ:

A snowman decoration holding up a multi-colored paper chain with his stick arms and proclaiming “No Hate In 21228” on his fake snowball body has been removed from the yard of the Knights of Columbus Patapsco Council in Catonsville.

The snowmen were a Catonsville Celebrations Committee fundraising effort for the annual Fourth of July parade. Local businesses were sponsoring the decorations. Snooki was sponsored by a local real estate team, The Beacon Home Team.

The political action group mentioned in the Knights of Columbus statement is the Catonsville Indivisibles. The group organized a “No Hate In 21228 Vigil and Rally” in August, and its website banner says “Resisting the Trump Agenda.”

Somebody needs to tell the newsreader how to pronounce "Catonsville".

Wasn't that one of the groups that didn't want to allow gays to march in the Catonsville 4th of July parade?

What exactly is the controversy? Who is in favor of hate?

For a political side that eschews "hate," the Left seems to have an over-supply of it.

So you should support the snowman message.

To put it bluntly.

Once again another bunch of righteous a-holes screwing everything up.

How much more benign can a phrase like that be?

Maybe it is because 'SOME'....don't want peace...don't want people to get along....and that message has to be squished.

My God if people actually acknowledged the message...then THEY.... would have nothing to [complain] about.

Lots of sick puppies with way to much time on their hands.

SMH

This is truly much ado about nothing!

There was nothing wrong, or even political, about the snowman, IMO.

I'm not at all sure how anyone could construe a message against hate as political, except possibly Lefties.

Pathetic a local TV station would send someone out to do a story in a town he doesn't know how to pronounce.

Much ado about nothing, perhaps. But there's no denying it was political. The slogan was first used at this event:
