California ‘Officials’ Have Now Entered Private Property To Tear Down Pro TRUMP Sign
Just when you think the autocrats in California can not get any more brazen, they go and do something like this and prove the doubters completely wrong for having under estimated them. Does this sound like the events that occur in a ‘free country?’ California’s lack of respect for the right of those with the minority political opinion to speak is unparalleled among the several states.
From Silicon Valley to this story by Caitlin Bassett, the censorship never ceases to end …
Officials from the California Department of Transportation dismantled massive white letters spelling “TRUMP” that appeared on private hillside property next to Highway 405 in Los Angeles on Tuesday morning.

The sign was reported in the early morning hours Tuesday by someone concerned about the potential of a fire due to its placement among dry brush.
California Highway Patrol quickly deemed the sign – fashioned after the famous LA “HOLLYWOOD” sign – a “traffic hazard.”
Many drivers slowed on the highway to capture pictures and videos.
Update: the sign is down.

No one knows as of yet who constructed the sign. Were the property owners responsible for the sign, or someone else? If it was someone else, were the property owners aware and in approval of the activity on their land?
Another important question that has not yet been answered is whether state officials notified the property owners before entering the property and taking the sign down.
Reactions to the sign on social media were just as divided as our political climate. Many called for its removal, while others celebrated the appearance of Trump support in largely-liberal Los Angeles.
A Twitter user named Shawn Hugus said he hoped they were pulling it down “because (Trump) got like 200,000 people killed.” (His Tweet will not appear here due to profanity used in his Twitter handle).
Another wrote, “Imagine if state officers trespassed on your property to remove your political sign. #1stAmendment”

Even President Trump re-posted the story to his Twitter account, urging Californians to “Vote TRUMP”:
Vote TRUMP California. No more blackouts, shutdowns, ridiculous forrest fires, or water “rationing” (coming soon). We can win in California NOW! https://t.co/6O8F9jjhTf

The facts of the matter are very simple … California has fallen into the hands of raven authoritarians who will stop at nothing to consolidate their power and impose their will on everything and everyone they possibly can. We have seen this tyrannical story repeat itself throughout history once and again, and again and …
