Someone Leaves Tire Marks on Rainbow Flag Crosswalk, Now Mayor Debates Calling it Vandalism

Published

Mayor Fred Eisenberger is yet again providing further evidence to validate the suggestion that liberalism is indeed a mental disorder as he mulls over whether or not black tire marks on a gay pride rainbow flag crosswalk was the result of a bigoted vandal.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is the world we now live in. Hope you’re enjoying the ride.

Mayor Fred Eisenberger said there is some debate among staff as to whether the marks were made on purpose or are a normal occurrence of rubber wearing off tires on hot pavement in the dead of summer.

“I’m suspicious,” he said. “Just the way it (the marking) sits there. It’s odd that it’s just before and after the crosswalk (and into the crossing).”

Eisenberger said some staff think the marks may be due to this summer’s hot weather, but he noted that he hasn’t seen the same kind of tire impressions on white crosswalk markings.

“I suspect it’s wilful … but at this point, we’ll fix it and see what happens.”

The black marks will be eliminated with touch-up paint, he said.

“The good news is this is the only one with the problem.”

The rainbow crosswalks are a symbol of inclusiveness among the LGBTQ community.

David Ferguson, city supervisor of traffic engineering, said it’s always possible people may be doing burnouts or laying rubber on the crosswalks, but it is also possible the marks could be from tires wearing down in the heat and leaving marks on the hot pavement.

This is how this town is choosing to use their tax dollars? Decorating crosswalks and then launching investigations into supposed “vandalism” of the crosswalk paint?

Really?

Surely there’s others in this town who see the absolute insanity of decorative crosswalks, right? It’s a crosswalk, not an art exhibit. Good grief. This right here, is what’s wrong with this country, summed up in one story.

Apple Backs Down, Will Allow Parler Back on App Store

The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

Free speech is a fickle thing, and precious too.  If we’re not careful, it can be stripped away but those who hide behind the claim that a “private” company can limit your personal freedoms. Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms are almost always the culprits here, bending the algorithmic reach of those with whom they disagree. Enter Parler:  A free speech app where only the bare legal minimum of content would be moderated. The platform became incredibly popular with an astonishing swiftness, but soon faced trouble from companies who had previously aligned themselves with Facebook and Twitter’s more controlling stance. Apple, who had previously booted Parler from its App Store, has now relented to the Constitution. Apple has approved Parler’s return to the iOS app store following improvements the social media company made to better detect and moderate hate speech and incitement, according to a letter the iPhone maker sent to Congress on Monday. The decision clears the way for Parler, an app popular with conservatives including some members of the far right, to be downloaded once again on Apple devices. The letter — addressed to Sen. Mike Lee and Rep. Ken Buck and obtained by CNN — explained that since the app was removed from Apple’s platform in January for violations of its policies, Parler “has proposed updates to its app and the app’s content moderation practices.” On April 14, Apple’s app review team told Parler that its proposed changes were sufficient, the letter continued. Now, all Parler needs to do is to flip the switch. The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

WATCH: NC Man Slings Rabid Bobcat Across His Front Yard

WOW!

For many North Carolinians, neighborhood living brings with it the peace of mind that the most invasive animals you might have to deal with are squirrels who are trying to rest in your attic, or raccoons hoping to fatten up from your trash can.  The Tar Heel state has some bears, sure, but they’re not often the pestering or dangerous type like you might see in the Pacific Northwest or parts of California. But one man this week got up close and personal with a seriously frightening creature this week, after it lunged at his wife from underneath their car. A disturbing video captures the moment a rabid bobcat attacks a North Carolina woman—and the moment her husband grabs it off her and throws it through the air. Kristi and Happy Wade of Burgaw were walking to their SUV to take their cat to the vet the morning of April 9 when the growling animal ran across the street and attacked, WIS-TVreports. After throwing it several feet, Happy Wade eventually shot it after it ran into the couple’s garage and then continued to charge, ABC 11 reports. A neighbor who had been jogging by at the time stopped to help and called 911. Video of the incident is simply unbelievable. https://twitter.com/nojumper/status/1383145940807163904?s=20 The bobcat was injured by Wade and later euthanized by local law enforcement.  An autopsy revealed that the animal was indeed rabid, and the family has been undergoing treatment for their numerous bite wounds.
