Is This A Hate Crime?
San Anselmo's Pat La Tray, who built the gallows and has this display on his front yard, doesn't think so:
"It is a patriotic symbol," La Tray said. "It has nothing to do with race or religion."...
La Tray said he moved to the house in 2002 with his wife, Nong. As a veteran of several wars, he said he is offended people don't stand up for American troops.
"I'm an American to the bone," he said. "For me, it is strictly about Islamo-fascism."
Predictably, CAIR has something to say about La Tray's gallows and effigy.
