Coeur d’Alene City Councilman Dan Gookin shouts white supremacists at Casey Whalen and Dave Reilly during the Independence Day Parade.

As documented here, over the last few years, we have seen the encroachment on Americans’ civil liberties by those who either hate the Constitution and the idea of a constitutional republic or are inept and not educated on the concept of God-given, un-a-lien-able rights.

The City of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho is no exception.

On July 2, 2024, the City Council of Coeur d’Alene passed a hate crime ordinance. It’s essentially a mirror of the malicious harassment law in Idaho, but laced with additional penalties to malign constitutionally minded citizens. It’s a simple way to put political opposition in a box that disagrees with socialists and the LGBTQ agenda, a method to chill free speech.

Idaho’s malicious harassment law was created in 1983.

A cadre of citizens spoke in favor of the hate crime ordinance at the recent city council meeting; in fact, a majority have vested interests in a larger agenda: a conspiracy to garner social prestige in the community, play the victim to access more state and federal grant monies, and wage lawfare on their opposition.

The Kootenai County Task Force on Human Relations (KCTFHR) had all hands on deck in support of the hate crime ordinance, which they helped create in tandem with the Human Rights Education Institute (HREI) and other nefarious Godless organizations that promote the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and Agenda 21 (Agenda 2030).

Tony Stewart, secretary of the KCTFHR, led the public comments on July 2, 2024. The Director of the HREI, Jeanette Laster, spoke shortly after that. Chief Allen, the Chairman of the Coeur d’Alene Tribe, lobbyist Eli Hancock followed her.

Jody Hiltenbrand, the new President of the KCTFHR, also Principal at Dalton Elementary School, Ryan Nipp of Parkwood Business Properties, spoke in favor of the ordinance along with Tyrell Stevenson, legislative director for the CdA Tribe, Emily Peterson, Nephrologist at Kootenai Medical Center, Cecil Kelly III, former therapist at Heritage Health and arsonist Clark Richman, Artist Blair Williams, Susan and Jeff Crowe of Bunkhouse Media also voiced support the for recently adopted hate crime ordinance.

A who’s who of social engineers promoting a globalist agenda to destroy the United States and specifically North Idaho.

It should be noted Bunkhouse Media provides content and film events for the Human Rights Education Institute and the Kootenai County Task Force on Human Relations.

Aspects of the hate crime ordinance are broken down into subsections that address intimidation, malicious injury to property, harassment, assault and battery, public nuisance, disorderly conduct, threat, and conspiracy, which are already current laws but are tailored to address perceived race, color, creed, religion, ancestry, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical or mental disability or national origin.

The Constitution of the State of Idaho Art 1, Sec 9 states that every person may speak, write, and publish on all subjects, being responsible for the abuse of that liberty.

The Constitution of the State of Idaho Art 1, Sec 9 states that every person may speak, write, and publish on all subjects, being responsible for the abuse of that liberty.

One of the interesting aspects of the new ordinance is the penalty section, which mentions that if someone is found guilty of violating this unlawful ordinance, they would be ineligible for any city license, permit, or activity for up to three years.

Additionally, the court may impose community service or participation in an educational program, aka re-education.

Tyrants doing what they do best.


Post from Rep. Heather Scott

On July 4, 2024, I attended the Independence Day Parade to document the event and film the public’s reaction to the Coeur d’Alene Chamber of Commerce’s recent decision to allow religious symbols after threatening to ban such items. Of course, this enraged the community, and an intense backlash promoting liberty prevailed.

I decided to film our local city councilmen to boo and shame them as they made their way down Sherman Avenue while participating in the parade. Video here :

City Councilman Dan Gookin thought it would be funny to call Dave Reilly (delegate for the Kootenai County Republican Central Committee) and I white supremacists and racists as he slowly passed in the procession, Gookin, probably not remotely thinking about the recently passed hate crime ordinance.

The next day, I contacted the US District Attorney’s office in Coeur d’Alene to report a hate crime by Dan Gookin. As reported here multiple times, the Department of Justice launched a program in 2022 called United Against Hate. On September 15, 2022, Attorney General of the Department of Justice Merrick Garland hosted an event at the White House entitled United We Stand.

This program created a mechanism to report perceived hate crimes and fold in the community, as promoted by local Assistant US Attorney for the State of Idaho Traci Whelan. In conjunction with the FBI (along with Coeur d’Alene FBI Agent Bryant Gunnerson), Whelan has implored the community to report hate incidents/crimes to their respective offices.

The Jabara-Heyer No Hate Act of 2021 funded states to create hotlines for reporting hate. States have since passed laws that provide further funding for hotlines and reporting. Human Rights Networks nationwide provide forms to report hate, which are sent to the ADL, SPLC, etc., as well as law enforcement and fed to state fusion centers, which relay information to and from local police and sheriff departments.

  1. The REAL problem with the current range of psychological warfare tactics is that it requires an increasing level of emotional fervor to believe their Double/Demon speak. The World Regimes use their clueless true believers to join the Marxist mob mentality to round up their political opposition and send them to the “fun” Reeducation camps. The CDA petty politicians have been tasked to set the legal trap to shut down the region’s defiant Patriots. The organic shut down of the Antifa/BLM Sherman Ave march by the CDA “Minutemen and women” released their Left Wing fake Human Blight organizations and their Gerorgetown lawfare hitman. The recent July 4th Antifa style arson attack on the “patriot” Sandpoint Army Navy store shows that the attack on Idaho and specifically N. Idaho is real and escalating. This false virtue signally ordinance will be challenged long and hard and it will fall. The real Communist colored (red and yellow) T-shirt wearing “bipedal vermin” will be revealed in the upcoming months.

  2. Does anyone still believe Idaho is a conservative Christian red state?
    Woke Marxism is Idaho’s new god. Mock Idaho’s new god and the
    state, antifa or blm may come for you. Or maybe your place
    of business.

  3. “White Supremacist” is a race-based smear used to harries, intimidate and deride normal people who disagree with the Democrat Party. Rightfully so, this very public smear caught on tape should be reported.

  4. If you were there to watch the meeting you’d see the concerns were addressed regarding free speech. Or if you read the ordinance and comprehend it, it says it is an add-on to another crime charge. Meaning you have to do something else and on top of that crime they’ll see if it’s a hate crime. It’s the seatbelt law. They can’t pull you over in Idaho for not wearing a seatbelt. They can if they pulled you over for speeding and see you’re not wearing one. Gookin can call you all sorts of names but you’ll have to suck it up cuz (1) there’s evidence that what he said is true and (2) he’ll never commit a crime and (3) he gave the cops a big pay raise. Cops know you’re a nuisance. Cops know the city supports them. Since when did you ever help the cops?

    • So basically Brie, you admitted Mr Gookin is a corrupt politician who pays off the police department. You have really stepped in it. I am a retired policeman by the way. Also, when Mr Gookin was standing up in the sunroof, he committed a vehicle code violation.

  5. The only hate I see , is against conservative folks. Everyone should contact the CDA mayor and city council in a respectful way and voice their concerns. Two wrongs never make a right.
