7-7: Patriot Parade

[I write about politics because of the direct link I see between the words and actions of politicians and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. America’s political class manipulates our military as though they were pawns in a global game of chess. To them, PTSD is merely an unfortunate cost of war.]

The week of July 4therism continues. This time it is a man and his golf cart “parading” in Sheridan, Indiana. Perhaps you’ve seen it.

Racist float in a 4th of July parade

This photo and story come with much balderdash about liberty and freedom of expression. Oh, and did you notice that the Obama effigy is half in/out of a toilet, decorated with the slogan “Flush Lying African”?

Yes, Golf Cart Driver has the right blah, blah, blah. But I don’t get the connection to democracy and freedom and pride in America. All I see is hate. Am I wrong? I see a racist rubbing his “freedom of expression” in every one else’s face. What do you see? And even though there is a huge “Trump” sign on top of the cart, I can’t blame Loud Mouth for this. I was taught that with freedom comes responsibility. I believe that.

I am missing something, I’m sure. Please enlighten me.

  1. Paul you are so right. Racism is rearing it’s ugly head in all shapes and forms these days.

    We had come so far over the years to augment change. We see people reverting to the old wrong ways.

    This is America, the melting pot, home of freedom for all. We have a Lady in the harbor welcoming all to our shores.

    Let us return to the right path. Where healthy debates are a good thing and return RACISM to the garbage can where it belongs.
