Ken Hughes, in his letter to the editor in the WCM said, ‘“Simply put, today's "tea partiers" are clearly the most bigoted, white people in America.’
I have read Mr. Hughes rants for quite some time, allowing myself to agree to disagree with many of his opinions and ideals, which make me nauseous. After numerous letters to the editor, he has become easy to ignore, until now.
He chose to call all “tea partiers” bigots. How does a liberal end rational discussion? By name calling. There is only one problem. My 74 year old mother is a “tea partier”, and no one calls my mom a bigot; no one. You can call me anything you want, but you don’t call my mother names or infer her behavior is unladylike.
It looks as if he needs to remember that there are consequences to offensive public behavior, even with the right to free speech. If someone calls my mom a name that offends me, they got an ass whoopin coming.
I look forward to personally expressing my freedom of expression for disrespecting those Americans who have those same rights; of which, over 90% of them do not call names or behave inappropriately. Mr. Hughes is no friend of America and a bad example to my children and grandchildren. I'm sure he is a very lonely man.
The problem with “tea partiers”, Mr. Hughes, is they are people of action, not only words. Hide and watch...
