I hope he doesn't need any services rendered through the winter from any minority electricians, plumbers, law enforcement, ambulance or tv cable guys.
He may end up with less than a happy holiday season.

Everyone can serve as an example, even a bad one. Parents in the area might point out the the snow-clansman to their children and use it as a teachable moment. YMMV

This is the most important type of free-speech to protect... the unpopular type.

It looks like a pointy-headed ghost whose dog slipped his leash to me. I don't see the letters KKK anywhere (did I miss them?).

Yep, it should be allowed like any other form of free speech, no matter if it's distasteful or not.

So these people shouldn't have the right to free speech and the protection of the First Amendment according to your conclusion?

Free speech and the First Amendment only applies to politically correct free speech then eh?

Tolerance is supposed to be the cornerstone of liberalism but I don't see much tolerance in the post above nor do I see it in the OP picture either. Hmmmmmmmm
