To Respect Symbols Or To Respect Ideals


This post doesn’t live here anymore. It has emigrated to my other blog:

The Big No-No: An Outsider on American Fascism, where it resides under the title:

  1. There has been such a “knee-jerk” reaction to this on FB that I am saddened that so very many people cannot even differentiate between symbols and the ideals they represent. People actually REFUSE to discuss it in any meaningful manner. Meantime, our president uses his bully pulpit to distract citizens from equally important issues going on. Thank you for your words. Made perfect sense to me.
