A Wisconsin man was charged with a hate crime after an anti-Semitic meltdown over his neighbor’s yard sign.

Gregory Kirst, of Mequon, was charged with disorderly conduct with a hate crime enhancer in connection with the Aug. 30 incident involving his neighbor’s sign expressing support for Democrat Joe Biden, reported the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The 49-year-old Kirst, whose mugshot shows an Outlaws biker gang tattoo on his chest, removed the sign from the neighbor’s yard and yelled at the woman through her screen door, and then swore at her and repeatedly showed his middle finger after she ordered him off the property.

The woman’s husband then confronted Kirst outside, and he called the man a “dirty Jew” and blamed Jewish people for violent clashes in Portland, Oregon.

Kirst eventually returned home, where he created a “Jews for Trump” sign on a white sheet that he displayed on his own front lawn.

He refused to leave his home when police arrived and denied removing the neighbor’s sign, but another neighbor convinced him to come outside to be arrested.

Crooks and Deger-Sen are now urging the Senate not to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett or any nominee until after the presidential election. "Rushing through a confirmation with an election underway threatens the very legitimacy of the court," they wrote in a joint op-ed for The New York Times Sunday.

Black voters who sat out 2016 are ready to boot ‘ignorant’ Donald Trump ‘come hell or high water’: report

Published

In 2016, “I didn’t like either of the candidates," said Jason Hooper of Greensboro, North Carolina.

Turns out, Hooper wasn't the only one with this perspective. According to Pew Research, Black voter turnout declined in 2016 for the first time in 20 years, down from 66.2 percent to 59.6 percent. Things are different this year, though. Washington Post-ABC News national polls conducted late last month and early this month found Biden leading Trump among African American likely voters, 92 percent to 8 percent. So if Black voters who stayed home four years ago turn out this year, Biden could swing back the states that Trump narrowly won against Hillary Clinton, no matter what happens with the White vote.
