LETTER: ‘I’m Bothered by One of the Participants in Yesterday’s Parade’
I’m bothered about one of the participants in yesterday’s parade, Dave Christie, a “Larouche Democrat.” He and his contingent carried a very large “IMPEACH OBAMA” sign. I believe that no matter where you are politically, to advertise such a sentiment toward our current President in a community celebration of our country is completely inappropriate.
Worse, my four-year old was handed a pamphlet by this group, which contained the infamous and ridiculously offensive picture of Obama with the Hitler-stache that the LaRouchies love so much. While I was busy being angry about the large sign, my son handed me the pamphlet, opened to that picture, and said “look, Mom!” He is well aware of who our President is and was amused and confused by it. I said “I’ll take that, those people are yucky.” Infuriating.
Just wanted to share my thoughts; I guess others would argue it’s a matter of free speech, something I am also grateful for.
