What does it mean to “promote peace and understanding”? And, what does it mean to show good will? Honestly, I wouldn’t know. Black heart and all.
This is all precipitated from the news from Bonners Ferrry, Idaho: Some witless fellow thought it would be a good idea to display a noose and some kind of sign referencing his favorite list of politicians to hate. Surprise, none were right-wing! His is not a rare example. In any town or region, you will find malcontents a-plenty who think that blunt bigotry is a good idea.
I don’t want to pontificate. I just want to say that this always bugs me. What’s the deal here? I want to ask this guy, “Why is your world so small?”
I have nothing else to add. Sorry.
