‘Hate-free forum’ in St. Albans next week; masks required

The United States Attorney’s Office, the Vermont Attorney General’s Office, and the Rutland Area NAACP will be co-hosting a Hate-Free Vermont Forum in St. Albans on November 17, from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. This forum will be the third held in an ongoing series; previous 2022 Hate-Free Vermont Forums have taken place in Rutland and Bennington.

“The Forum aims to bring policymakers, stakeholders, and community members together for productive and difficult conversations that will work to reduce animus, discord, and misunderstandings,” said co-facilitator Etan Nasreddin-Longo. “When we began these conversations in 2019, our goal was to take the pulse of Vermonters’ experience of discrimination. Much has happened since that time, and our hope is to engage and to listen to our historically-disadvantaged communities about what they view as the continuing and new problems in 2022.”

Community members are encouraged to join a conversation on understanding and addressing bias, discrimination, and hate crimes in Vermont. The Forum will be hosted in person and remotely.

Physical location: Community College of Vermont – St. Albans, 97 North Main Street, Suite 200, St. Albans, VT 05478

In-person registration link (optional):
Who: All are welcome. For physical attendance, masks are required. Registration is required for remote attendance.

  1. I for one, as a FREE VERMONTER and as a person who will not let anyone tell me I MUST preform a Medical Procedure (wear a mask) (also a Nuremburg human rights law violation against forced medical procedures) will NEVER attend any occasion where I MUST wear a mask. That is a violation of my right to NOT be subjected to false medical quackery or any medical procedure. What, next we need a shot that has something like syphilis or some other toxic substance. I cannot believe this is the Republic of Vermont…. No it is becoming Weimar Republic. When do the trains and busses show up. Yes I have gone without (not much) but I am FREE! So when does OUR Hitler take over? Oh, By the way the masks are full of cancer causing stuff. Read for yourself. Never have had one never will.

    If you do not think that wearing a 80 micron mask to stop a 5 micron “virus” when all of science says otherwise, you are being experimented on. If you are uninformed enough to do that then that killer shot/s are ready for you. BTW that too is a medical experiment not a treatment. Were you informed. probably not, nor did anyone read the insert, oh I forgot nothing was printed on that insert.
    They are sinning against humanity.

    The Nuremberg Code

    The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential.
    This means that the person involved should have legal capacity to give consent; should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, over-reaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved, as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision. This latter element requires that, before the acceptance of an affirmative decision by the experimental subject, there should be made known to him the nature, duration, and purpose of the experiment; the method and means by which it is to be conducted; all inconveniences and hazards reasonably to be expected; and the effects upon his health or person, which may possibly come from his participation in the experiment.
    The duty and responsibility for ascertaining the quality of the consent rests upon each individual who initiates, directs or engages in the experiment. It is a personal duty and responsibility which may not be delegated to another with impunity.
    The experiment should be such as to yield fruitful results for the good of society, unprocurable by other methods or means of study, and not random and unnecessary in nature.
    The experiment should be so designed and based on the results of animal experimentation and a knowledge of the natural history of the disease or other problem under study, that the anticipated results will justify the performance of the experiment.
    The experiment should be so conducted as to avoid all unnecessary physical and mental suffering and injury.
    No experiment should be conducted, where there is an a priori reason to believe that death or disabling injury will occur; except, perhaps, in those experiments where the
    experimental physicians also serve as subjects.
    The degree of risk to be taken should never exceed that determined by the humanitarian importance of the problem to be solved by the experiment.
    Proper preparations should be made and adequate facilities provided to protect the experimental subject against even remote possibilities of injury, disability, or death.
    The experiment should be conducted only by scientifically qualified persons. The highest degree of skill and care should be required through all stages of the experiment of those who conduct or engage in the experiment.
    During the course of the experiment, the human subject should be at liberty to bring the experiment to an end, if he has reached the physical or mental state, where continuation of the experiment seemed to him to be impossible.
    During the course of the experiment, the scientist in charge must be prepared to terminate the experiment at any stage, if he has probable cause to believe, in the exercise of the good faith, superior skill and careful judgement required of him, that a continuation of the experiment is likely to result in injury, disability, or death to the experimental subject.

  2. Bias free community unless you are a conservative, Republican, a white person aka white supremacist per the Social Justice ideology, antivaccer, science denier, or capitalist supporting fascist, white nationalist who loves America per NPR. I will not be in attendance.

  3. For a state that had a very long history of being the safest state in the nation until recently, there apparently sure was a LOT of “hate” here, and nobody even knew it!
    Or……. could it be the “newcomers”……hmmmm…..

  4. So, Hate inspired people sponsoring a “hate free forum”? Besides the regular set of people they hate (really, any not toeing the line on socialism and cultural Marxism), they most certainly are going to hate those who don’t want to wear masks. Why do Vermonters put up with this hypocrisy? Do they just find it entertaining? More importantly, willing to give up their liberties for this Orwellian mob?

  5. How to filter out conservatives….require a face diaper. Oh well….they’ve got their jab and I’ve got my health.

  6. At the root, the neurotic imagining that there’s “hate” lurking in every corner is the same as the imaginings of a “deadly virus,” that’s still out there, lurking in every corner. Gonna getcha! I STILL see maskers, even outdoors, and at this point literally, genuinely, assume they’re mentally unwell. Same goes for the Junior Anti-hate Brigade. If they can’t find some good old fashioned hate, don’t you worry. Since the demand greatly exceeds the supply, they’ll just manufacture some, so they can show everyone how bad it really is! The left lives in constant fear of some ridiculous bogeyman, and lashes out at scapegoats & unbelievers in fits of projection & social contagion. It’s a psychological pattern that never ends well, and they’re only getting worse.

  7. Hate crime laws mean that some assaults aren’t “that bad”. When you stoop to “this level” you are actually condoning violence. All hate crime laws should be repealed!

  8. The mask is a symbol that psyops are effective, Members of society continue to perform this ritual like trained seals. The mask clearly identifies the cult-like group-think which gangs use with colored bandanas (crypts and bloods.) I am thankful to be naturally immune and resistant to social engineering. Unfortunately, the medical establishment as well as other institutions continue to promote and require this pantomime of Kabuki theater. Do not comply with a lie.

  9. There is a remote option as well. You dont have to get all cranked up about the mask bit. Attend the meeting remotely.

    • Why would I subject myself to any further abuse from these people. I made the mistake of attending the Essex Equity meetings and school board meetings. I have never been subjected to such hate and intolerance in my life. After the way this state, our polititians and community members have treated people whose views do not support their narrative and virtue signaling, why would I ever attend, virtually or in person.

  10. Hate and intolerance indeed exist in the world, but so does domestic violence, infanticide, slavery, “urban” violence, animal cruelty, malfunctioning automobiles and checks getting lost in the mail.
    The sooner we stop OBSESSING about it, we can go back to the way Vermont was before all the super-enlightened, “progressive” people from southern New England and NYC came here and turned it into the bleepholes they left behind..

  11. Keeping all healthy people, organic people, critical thinkers out, because………………..

    we love them?

  12. “Community members” are invited to attend…unless you dont like wearing a face diaper, then by definition you are not a “member of the community”…

  13. Vermont has always been a virtually hate free state. This is a B.S. guilt trip tour. Don’t buy what they are selling Vermont. And don’t waste your time with a mask.
