After the violence and loss of life in Charlottesville, Va., why Mayor Jim Gray would risk bringing the same kind of violence to Lexington is beyond me.
What could be more foolish than baiting the Neo-Nazis and the KKK? Blood in the streets is what they want, and Gray can’t wait to give it to them — and all over two statues.
If lives are lost due to this reckless decision — whether they be the lives of leftist anarchists or Black Lives Matter activists, Neo-Nazis or Ku Klux Klan members, or innocent bystanders — part of the blood will be on Gray’s hands. Did we elect him to jeopardize the lives of the citizens over a meaningless, made-up issue invented by whoever thinks they can profit from the extremist polarization of American society?
