Letters to the Editor

Freedom of ignorant speech

I believe in freedom of the press, but where do you draw the line?

The June 27 letter “Obama partly to blame” would have been humorous had it not been so laced with hatred and bigotry. Somehow the writer blames the Orlando massacre on the president, the Supreme Court and the media.

But the best part was how the gay community “rubs it in the face of normal people with their parades and displays.” Normal people? Like the letter writer? When he heard about the senseless killings at an Orlando gay bar was he outraged or secretly pleased because of their “aberrant behavior?”

When I served my country for 10 years, I never imagined I would be protecting the rights of ignorant people like him.
