Letter: V. Kramer, Leesburg

Editor: Free speech is being silenced. You may voice your opinion if it is in lock step with the prevailing powers that be, but if you disagree, you are labeled a bigot, a racist, a homophobe, a sexist, a religious fanatic, etc.

Can you not see how dangerous this is? Whatever happened to “I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it?”

This country was founded on the Bill of Rights and the freedoms it affords us, freedoms which other countries have forfeited and lived to regret.

What kind of America is this where people cannot express an honest difference of opinion? Certainly not the one I grew up in and probably not the one you grew up in either.

Small minority groups are dictating how we are to behave, what we are allowed to say, what we are to believe, and what it’s okay to teach our children in school.

Our founding fathers lost their lives, their fortunes, their homes and families upholding their beliefs. We, on the other hand, are afraid to be called names.

What cowards we have become.

V. Kramer, Leesburg

    I urge all to not be intimidated by self-appointed speech/thought police. They are the ones out of touch with their extreme agenda of control. Stand up to them. Call them out as the creepy group think hate filled mob they are. Their infantile feelings do not usurp our rights to freedom of speech or expression.

    Good letter.

    Exactly – I assume you are talking about how Trump is trying to suppress free thinkers, correct?

    Anyone or any entity who attempts to suppress the freedom of speech of others. Anyone. You, democrats, and other assorted leftist thugs, Trump, Randall, Gov.Blackface/KKK/Infanticide guy, I don’t care who it is.
    The Bill of Rights supersedes all.

    Is that clear enough for you to grasp YN, or do you need further explanation?

    When someone defends the right to free speech and expression for all, you see it as some form of intimidation? It must be difficult for you YN hearing and reading the words of others in the exact opposite of what was said.

    How do you order food at a restaurant with such an impediment?
