Michigan vet’s ‘no foreigners’ home sale sign violates law, state agency says

Michigan-VeteranA Michigan veteran selling his home faces a civil rights complaint over a front-yard sign that says he won’t sell to foreigners.

The exclusionary sign in front of James Prater’s house in Mason says “Terms No foreigners Iraq vet.”

The complaint was filed by the Michigan Department of Civil Rights. The agency says the sign violates state and federal discrimination laws, and wants it removed.

“When an ad like this goes unchallenged, it sends a message to the community that such ads are legal and accepted,” Civil Rights Director Agustin Arbulu. “Not only may it encourage others to use similarly discriminatory language in advertising, the perception that a community accepts discrimination of this sort discourages potential purchasers from considering other properties in the area.”

    Is Agustin Abooboo planning on suing the NAACP and National Black Caucus to let in white members next?

    Last time I checked the Constitution does not give the Government the right to dictate who you sell any of your belongings to including your house. Nor does it give them the right to dictate who you do business with. That is why there is a case now before the Supreme Court about a certain Cake Maker and his Christian beliefs. If the guy wants to exclude some people from buying his home, that is for him to decide, not a bunch of Liberal snowflakes.

  • Peter Smith

    It’s HIS property, he can sell it or not sell it to whoever he damn well pleases. The Constitution is one his side, which means he’ll be attacked by every liberal cocksucker on the planet. He’s a Vet, I’m sure he’s lived through worse.

    His house, his property. If he’s selling it himself and not using a real estate company as a go-between, he should be able to set *any* conditions that he wishes. Period!

    Can they force you to sell to a person (muslim) whose religion requires that he kill you because you will not pay religion tax or convert ?

    Still doesn’t change how he feels about all those sand rat’s coming to our Country that don’t belong and never will.

    Michigan is about lost the the gutter rat cult islam, but I love what this man is doing! People in that part of the world need to wake up FAST if it’s not too late!

    • Duke-Jinx

      ah… not quite, And perhaps You should ‘wake up’ and realize We are Well Aware.

      • Rodney Steward

        I’m very awake my friend, we don’t have NO GO ZONES HERE!!

        • Duke-Jinx

          Sans the hype… Neither do we. This is a CC state. Everywhere 🙂

          • Rodney Steward

            Sorry friend, Dearborn Michigan has no go zones in several places, watched a special on it not long ago! Good you have CC, wouldn’t live in a place that didn’t, we have Open carry also!!

          • Duke-Jinx

            So did we !! And Laughed.

            Really.

          • Rodney Steward

            OK, good, stay safe!!

    wHO THE HELL DO THEY THINK THEY ARE KIDDING, IF ANYTHING THEY ARE TRYING TO VIOLATE HIS CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS ABOUT WHO HE WILL NOT SELL HIS HOME TO. STAY OUT OF IT YOU NASTY SUPPOSED CIVIL RIGHTS PEOPLE YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT CIVIL RIGHTS WHEN YOU INTEFERE WITH SOMEONE ELSE’S RIGHTS.

  • Norman Fox

    Yea see who is bitching the loudest some tax payers money to support the leftist liberal snowflakes. Get a real job you idiots. He has the right too sell to whom ever he wants to. What this seller should do is tell the civil rights idiots he will sell at a much higher price to them so they can sell it to some other cry babies. That way everyone is happy. Seller makes more money civil rights idiots get a house to give to whom ever. end of problem

    • don’t say anything, just don’t sign any contracts with any foreigners. he has a right not to sign any contract he doesn’t like, one can always find a reason not to sign.

      • Duke-Jinx

        Exactly !! It’s as simple as that. Period.

  • bob breglio

    I think this is silly. A person should be able to sell their property to whomever they want and not sell it to whomever they want. Where in the Constitution does it give the state or federal government the power to decide who we can sell our property to?
