Outrage in Delaware  (ed: understatement of the young year)


This picture is from a Milford, Delaware playground.  Milford is in Southern Delaware in the very conservative Sussex County.  I originally saw this picture on Facebook, from a liberal friend downstate, who was sharing it via an original posting of the very nonliberal Dan Gaffney, a conservative talk show radio host.   It is nice to know that the outrage concerning this photo is bipartisan.  And what is so outrageous about it, you ask?
Well, you can read what it says in English.   In Spanish it says (paraphrasing) “You have to have a permit to play here or you will be arrested.”    The english version contains no information about needing a permit or else you will be subject to police action.   It is an obvious intimidation tactic and a not so subtle “Whites Only” sign.

And, no, it’s not Photoshopped. The sign is indeed real.
