This letter in today's Free Press offends me. It violates my rights not to feel angry and hurt. It is a disrespectful, brutal, hateful, bigoted attack upon values that my ancestors killed and died to establish and defend. I can hardly type this through the tears. The dripping mucus has stuck down the \\\\\\\\\\ key on my keyboard. Though he would disingenuously, smirkingly deny it under interrogation, the author clearly hates me and everyone else who thinks like me.
In the U.S., "freedom of speech" has precedence. There, one has the right to offend up to the point of "fighting words" When the fighting starts, "might is right": those who can afford the best lawyers. I would suggest that is not a fair system.I feel assaulted. If this fellow truly believes what he says, he will turn himself in and be forced to apologize to my community.
