No, I agree that historically when the Klan marches they aren't
marching about a school bond. And I've already stated my
disagreement with their message.
But... I would say that history is not necessarily an indicator
of the future - and that applying stereotypes to any individual,
or small subset of a larger group, and judging automatically by
that stereotype with no consideration for the individual, is
a dangerous thing.
When the 1st Amendment no longer protects your voice.
And when the 4th Amendment no longer protects your privacy or your stuff.
Thank God we have the 2nd Amendment to tell our elected representatives
that enough is enough.
It's time to put "... from my cold, dead hands" back where it belongs.
