Sunday’s article “Groups against stay-home orders release names Of whistleblowers” was revealing. It displays the true colors of cults like The 3 Percenters, Patriots Prayer and Reopen Washington. Their tactics of threats, intimidation and coercion are right out of Mao Zedong’s playbook. They are no better than communist subversives.
They’ll use any excuse to parade their anti-government rhetoric and claim only they understand the Constitution. They worship the Second Amendment while fervently trampling on the first. Like the Taliban, they want their own brand of theocracy. 75% of us believe the governor is acting appropriately and within the law. We should be proud of the way most citizens have pulled together to support health care workers, first responders and local businesses.
I can’t speak for others but I am sick and tired of these goons parading around with sidearms and assault weapons. They expect us to take them seriously? They’re a bunch of clowns until they start threatening people. We have to resist their nonsensical ideas, not with violence but with our voices, pens and keyboards. They are not the voices of reason and they are not true patriots.
We must stick together through this crisis and others that are sure to follow. Remember our true national motto: “E pluribus unum” - Out of many, one.
