This is Northampton peace activist hippy Billy Park.
He’s really big into three things – free hugs, world peace, and Tulsi Gabbard.
Basically his thing is everyone should love each other, no one is beyond redemption, and even the most extreme people can come together if they hug one another.
But since he lives in Northampton this is a very unpopular opinion, because anyone who would ever vote for a Republican should not be loved, cannot be redeemed, and should never, ever be hugged. Recently he put this piece of art up in his yard, showing a Trump supporter hugging a black lives matter activist.
This is just a hippier version of Joyner Lucas’ “I’m Not Racist.”
And like Joyner Lucas, the artist who painted that picture is black.
Billy hung that picture up in his yard and then this happened.
Of course someone stole it from him. Because the last thing people in Northampton would wanna do is humanize people they disagree with. And because it’s Northampton a crusty clam named Zahra Ashe-Simmer who did it wasn’t afraid to brag about it on Facebook.
Silly white people with their “private property.” Didn’t you hear Billy? If a basic bitch in her early 20’s attending Wesleyan reads some Howard Zinn it means she gets to steal your property because hundreds of years ago Native Americans were here first. Also, black people have to “fight every day to exist,” so she had no choice but to steal your sign promoting peace and tolerance.
But because this is Northampton property theft and the rejection of tolerance made this a very popular move.
Uh muh God!! Conservative books!! Why are they reading those when they should be burning them! We don’t want people understanding different points of view! What does this look like, some sort of democracy? Only freaks who look like they’re rebelling against their stepdad Jeff should be allowed to decide what people can and can’t read and think in a free society.
The story made the news because she destroyed his property, refused to replace it, did so openly, and hasn’t been charged yet.
On Wednesday, Zahra Ashe-Simmer of Northampton posted on Facebook that she was the person who had removed Park’s sign. The following day, the same post appeared on the Northampton group page.
“I found it incredibly distasteful and problematic for reasons outlined here by multiple people,” she wrote.
That the artist is black didn’t change its “disturbing message,” Ashe-Simmer added.“Anyone can make simpering, white-idolizing media like this, regardless (of) identity, and the artist is not a representative of all black people or black politics,” she wrote.
Yea, just because the artist is black doesn’t mean it should be displayed. What did you think? All black opinion mattered? No, no, no, black people can’t express themselves through art because hyphenated white women who sound like they’re named after asteroids know more than them.
She said that she would be more than happy to replace the sign with something “less blatantly racist” made by a black artist, or to discuss with Park why the sign is offensive.
“I would strongly urge you NOT to make more prints and consider why a town full of white people with MAGA-sympathizing iconography in their front yards isn’t the move,” Ashe-Simmer concluded.
Ashe-Simmer, who is white and lives in Northampton, said that a friend who is a person of color, but not black, had pointed out the sign to her. She said that they’d discussed knocking on Park’s door or sending a letter but that she ultimately decided she’d remove the sign herself.
“It felt like my responsibility to do,” said Ashe-Simmer, who is a graduate of Northampton High School and now attends Wesleyan University.
Imagine thinking that you have the right to decide what political opinions or expressions other people should and shouldn’t be legally allowed to express on their own property? Even if it was a Trump sign, who cares? People can and will vote for Donald Trump. Grownups accept this reality, but SJWs have never been run by grownups.
Northampton Police Chief Jody Kasper said the matter is under investigation and that no one has been charged or arrested. Ashe-Simmer said that the Northampton Police Department asked her to come into the station and that, after she refused, she was told she’d be charged with larceny. She said she has not been arrested or received a summons on this matter yet.On Park’s decision to involve the police, Ashe-Simmer said that, “I think it’s pretty telling of where he’s at right now.” Ashe-Simmer said she’s interested in having a conversation with Park, but she said he has refused, saying that he wants his sign returned first. “I would really love to,” she said about finding a time to talk. “Those are the conversations right now that are really important.”
At the end of the day what we have here is a racist white woman trying to cover up for her own racism under the cloak of wokeness, telling a black artist that his expression of peace and love isn’t acceptable in Northampton. But she’s “not telling POC how they should feel.”
Unless they feel that hugs are a good thing, or that Trump supporters are human beings. Then her cracker ass is here to tell those black people to sit down and shut the fuck up while she lectures them about her white privilege.

Story i seems to be 3 parts self involved and 2 parts posturing. Story is motivated by the desire for woke points and severely lacks moral character.
As a proud Northampton resident and freedom rider I am here to tell you that Zhara Ashe Simmer is heroic, she makes me proud to reside in Northampton. I support Black Lives and Zhara stand against all of you racists.
Howard Bryant over at ESPN @hbryant42 who grew in Northampton was quoted in paper as calling the sign an atrocity (which means an extremely wicked or cruel act) I have no idea who Howard Bryant is. Still I called him on his hyperbolic bull shit quote on Twitter and asked him did he think the BLM person was atrocious, the Trump guy with the tear in his eye, or the hug itself ?. Then he realizes he let his tweet get ahead of his brain and switched it to the quality of the art was atrocious . So I told him about Jamar Pierre and pointed him to Jamar’s website. I also told him JP a friend of mine is painstakingly cresting a mile long mural for his city New Orleans Now he is flip flopping like a bass on the bottom of a boat because he realizes he is calling over half the voters in this country atrocious or an amazing kind hearted artist work that . He may have thousand of twitter followers and me only eight but I don’t take those contemptible words from anybody. I know Jack about twitter but if you like go over to his twitter and tell him what you think. @hbryant42
You are trying to make sense and be reasonable with people who have lost their minds. The same people who claim to fight fascism by stealing, burning, looting from peaceful citizens and taking over a free society by force. The BLM/Antifa and their supporters are projecting what they are onto society at large. The most unreasonable people often violent, drunk, drugging and mentally ill people are in leading the charge to create chaos and pain. Knowingly taking full advantage of the Corona Virus societal break down to attack anyone who disagrees with them and destroy people, ideas and property with glee. Any fool can destroy but few anarchists can create anything that works or is worth having.
This is horrible. I have absolutely no idea what kind of incredibly twisted political ethics would prompt someone to write such a vile, hateful story, or so many people to comment so many terrible, evil things. I find this downright inhuman and think that whoever wrote this should be ashamed.
Thief and self righteous scumbags who hold the same opinions as fascists, if you don’t agree with me you don’t have a right to express yourself.
Atlanta police have released photos of 2 white women suspected of burning down the Wendy’s restaurant, hundreds of black protesters not one of them tried to burn down Wendy’s. Bat shit crazy marxist white women ruin everything. White female arson privilege.
Here’s the thing that really pisses me off is the artist who created is a good friend of mine but this is not helping his career as far as I have seen and he is an amazing guy..I feel it is partially my fault too. That is the only thing I regret about standing up to this self righteous girl
Billy, you’re a good dude. Hold fast and keep the faith. Don’t let the bastards and the bitches keep you down.
Love how the Libs eventually & inevitably cannibalize each other.
Guess you’ll have that when your entire existence is a complete fabrication & fraud, and that sub-consciously you’re denial eventually manifests itself and gets the best of you.
Basically his thing is everyone should love each other? I believe the operative phrase here is, “anything that moves.”
I live nearby Crescent St seen Billy Walking around must say that US Flag flying over his front entrance is one beautiful sight. Peace and love
Between the nose and the name “Zahra”, she ain’t White!!
I mustache you a question…
Why don’t you shave your mustache?
YOU SEE, PEOPLE DON’T WANT TO HEAR YOUR OPINION . . . THEY WANT TO HEAR THEIR OPINION, COMING OUT OF ‘YOUR’ MOUTH
Of COURSE she has one.
The thought process here is breathtaking in its narcissism. People like Story insist that you live by their political ideology and their rules, while at the same time being people who absolutely cannot get their own lives in gear so much as to make their lives banal.
And her story, by now, is more of a hack’s mail-in than a typical Kevin Cullen column:
Hello friends! I’m Story. I’m a queer florist, gardener, artist and organizer. I have a passion for nature, art and community, which culminates in my job as a florist. Since I began working as a florist two years ago, I’ve been promoted three (3!) times. This job nourishes my creativity in a way no other job has; it is more than a financial resource. My work as a florist has led to me participating in three art shows and two art tours.
I make people happy with my work. Flowers bring people together, make people smile in their happiest and saddest moments, and marks major milestone celebrations that I am lucky to be involved in. But last year, my most important resource — my car of 10 years — finally kicked the bucket. Unable to do deliveries or installations for work, my hours were cut significantly, to only 6 per week.
I rely on a single bus that runs along my route. The bus schedule limits access to my current job, increases my commute by 500%, and its extra-limited weekend schedule (ending by 5pm Saturdays and no service on Sundays) has made it incredibly difficult for me to find additional work to make up for lost hours. This leaves me relying on online social networks for rides home from work every week. Because I do not work enough to retain access to food stamps, I now rely on food pantries, which also requires me to find rides from friends. I was previously quite active in organizing in the area, but the transportation struggle makes it difficult. It often takes me 2-3 hours to find a single, one-way ride, sometimes days, and I have not had much leftover energy to participate in the things I care most about. I have sought financial assistance via loans, but unfortunately I do not qualify as a result of my student loan debt-to-income ratio. It is also currently too expensive to travel to visit my sick grandfather a few hours away.
Without a car, I have difficulty accessing:
-Work & work opportunities
-Activist opportunities to show up for my community
-Social events/fun activities
Too spot on for me to have an actual thot. What the shit…
You should get this guy on the live show tonight. He absolutely deserves some air time to talk about this and shame this bitch all the way back to Wesleyan!
Oh you done fucked up Becky!..
Never trust a gurl with a dick.
What’s really terrifying is she was completely brainwashed and indoctrinated in high school. The fact she is so detached from reality and she’s what, 18? That means her brain wasn’t just washed in HS, it was dry fucking cleaned.
Democrats were pro-slavery
Democrats voted against every civil rights act up until the 60’s
Democrats created the War on Poverty, a permanent plantation that is responsible for crime and destruction of the black family
Democrats to this day race bait and do everything they can to deflect their inherit blatant racism by deflecting it on people they disagree with
Democrats keep schools in black areas shitty on purpose, and refuse busing, charter schools, school choince
Democrats (Biden, CLinton, etc) supported crime bills that targeted blacks in the90s
Taken from a John Nolte article:
Below are the most controversial deaths of black Americans at the hands of police officers going back a full three years — plus those going back further that became national stories. I’m not here to question whether or not the police acted appropriately in each case. It is enough that they are controversial.
Below is the name of the victim, the city/state where the death occurred, and the political party in charge of the police at the time…
Rayshard Brooks – Atlanta, GA – Democrat
George Floyd – Minneapolis, MN – Democrat
Breonna Taylor – Louisville, KY – Democrat
Manuel Ellis – Tacoma, WA – Democrat
Atatiana Jefferson – Fort Worth, TX – Republican
Javier Ambler – Austin, TX – Democrat
Tony McDade – Tallahassee, FL – Democrat
Dion Johnson – Phoenix, AZ – Democrat
Jemel Roberson – Chicago, IL – Democrat
Botham Jean – Dallas, TX – Democrat
Stephon Clark – Sacramento, CA – Democrat
Jordan Edwards – Dallas, TX – Democrat
Eric Garner – NY, NY – Democrat
Laquan McDonald – Chicago, IL – Democrat
John Crawford, Beavercreek, OH – Republican
Freddie Gray – Baltimore, MD – Democrat
Tamir Rice – Cleveland, Ohio – Democrat
Out of those 17 names, 15 happened in cities or towns where a Democrat is in charge of the police department.
No one is stopping any of those cities from instituting police reforms … other than the Democrats who refuse to institute police reforms.
She drinks ” Silk” automatically her farts stink and her brain is deprived nutrients.
Going out on a limb here….
“What a cunt!”
Want to know how to get back at these people? Start painting huge swastika’s on their front doors, followed by the acronyms I.L.N – I.S.N & D.L&S.N. (I love nazis, I support nazis & Demokkkrats love & support nazis) that will teach them to keep their grubby racist man hands off of other people’s stuff.
Also, if you come across their posts on the antisocialmedias call them racist and bigoted then flag the fuck out of their pages. Stop being pussy and fight fire with fire.
After seeing that face that’s made for radio, the CEO of Silk probably wants to jump out of a window in his corner office.
That picture tells me that Silk is made from soy, chocolate and possibly jizz
0oo0 goodie it likes math. show up at my dwelling and try to steal something inside or outside of the egress. I’ll give you the peace sign (which is just the trigger finger and the middle) before I teach you a lesson in Triggernometry!
That’s a man, baby!
I stand with Zahra Ashe-Simmer. That sign is pure hate!
Here is a history and geography lesson for you fucking dolts who say we stole this land from the natives. This is in layman’s terms as to not get you to confused on a few key points. native Americans were immigrants too. they are of the mongoloid race but of different ethnic backgrounds. they traveled across the north American land bridge between russia and canada (now Alaska) to get here. They slowly trickled down to what is now the lower 48 and into mexico as well. They migrated here some 15,000 years before what people perceive today as Indians. Now shut the fuck up because you’re not as smart or intelligent as you think you are. Take the anal beads out of your ass, stop trying too be a woman when we can clearly tell youre a man, burn that gender studies and queer basketweaving book because it’s not getting you ahead in the real world, where the smart, intelligent and sane people live and go learn some fucking history. You are the laughing stock of the world all our jokes are directed at you and you only, no one takes you or what you say in the slightest bit seriously! Cant wait till I hear this dude who prances around in womans under garments offs it self like the other 82% of his kind do. Fucking retarded racist twit.
I’ve seen man hands before and those, my friends, are man hands.
Fuck that stolen land shit. If it wasn’t for the white men they would still be living in goddamn wigwams freezing to death.
Free piece of advice:
If one of the spokeswomen for your “movement“ is a mentally ill chick with a mustache and tapout shirts, it’s time to leave said movement (BLM)
Back in my day we would have just called Zahra Ashe-Simmer a witch and put her on trial in Salem. Her second name is already ashe and her first name zahra is strange and evil it doesn’t make any sense at all unless she is a witch and that would explain her witch’s face and witch hair.
Zahra has man-hands. I’d like to see her use her man-hands to massage Story’s pudgy thighs.
Northampton needs a Make America Great rally.
“Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.”
Ever notice that the shittier a person is, the less you have to scroll down their social media to find a Bernie photo or message?
Buy a razor or come out as Trans.
Anything of value at her house that could be offensive to POC, free pass to take it under sjw reasoning?
Liberals don’t have houses. They rent and couch surf.
Nice mustache. Look at her hands in the soy pic. Her hands are dirty. That kind of dirty that makes your knuckles discolor. She has dirt under her nails, and her facial skin is downright greasy. Take a fucking shower you slob! I bet there’s big black hairs growing out of that chin mole that she doesn’t bother to pluck.
I shouldn’t say ‘her’ or ‘she’, ‘it’ may be a male……..
Not a chin mole.
Its a release point.
The run is straight in, over the chin and once the mole is passed let go and bingo! Eye shot every time!
Is that Jake from State Farm?
Turtle boy I have no idea who you are but thanks for standing up for my free speech rights and some renegade girl think she has the ten commandments in her hand. I am the “peace love hippie guy” with the yard sign that got stolen by that girl. I do not take intolerant crap from anybody. Take all your sterotypical labels of what you think a peace love person is and shred them. I don’t spend much time in the virtual world spreading my fierce love. I get off this place where everybody has keyboard courage and get one on one in the streets with felons, nazis, drug addicts, homeless and others most peole try to demonize.
If you really are Billy Park, I just want to say…well done. You’ve set a good example here.
You should ask this cunt for a hug and then pile drive her to into hell!!
Sending a virtual hug to Billy Park. Dealing with hateful radicals is never fun.
She has a very cool mustache.
Hey man! Take a walk on the wild side! Doot doot doot doot da doot doot …
That flower pot next to her face looks like 2 huge, titanium testicles.
Pre-OP? Or post-op????
She could have tossed a molotov through his window. Think of all the high fives her fellow “progressives” would have given her. There would be calls for her to run for office.
That face is just begging to be slapped with a 2×4 and her upper lip needs a waxing. This is the future, like it or not. And she is one of the good ones (“educated” and only breaking minor laws). I doubt she is going to Wesleyan to learn to code or learn anything useful.
Hopefully she’s a lesbo or one of those retarded non-binary BLT-123 types and won’t reproduce.
Soy promotes hair growth, see the mustache on Zahra Ashe-Simmer. Not a problem though, since this paragon of truth probably thinks there are more than two genders, and all of them are rayciss!
Ok so I’m a moderate a Democrat ( we do exist) I’m NOT a liberal. My father proudly described himself as a “ Reagan Democrat” as did most of Southie during the 80s and 90s. I’m an avid Turtle rider and an ad free subscriber despite the fact that AK does tend to stray down the hard right path from time to time. That’s cool, I don’t judge people based on their political ideology. But as a Democrat & a faithful Turtle rider I will say this bitch is a fukin fruitcake and so self righteous and aloof, I can’t understand WHY she hasn’t been charged and I’m hoping to see an update in the coming hours/days telling ya she has been! Stupid SJWs thinking they know what’s best for society and they’re above the law? I hope she gets 10 days in the slammer!
Moderate Democrat = fag.
What. A. Stupid. Bimbo.
What do you do if you drop your wallet in Northampton?
You kick it over the bridge into Hadley. You NEVER EVER bend over in Northampton.
I’d say in 5-10 years these tolerant democrats will want people that disagree with them put to death and I’m not joking those people are absolutely insane
