WTH? When did some people decide that tolerance and respect for one another was passe? When did the freedom of speech become the freedom of violence toward our fellow human beings because they did, or said, or wrote or believed something that differed from us? Since when did it become okay to be an extreme asshole to another human being just because you don’t like what they did or said or wrote or believed while they expressed themselves within the limits of the law? Whatever happened to Grandma’s advice of, ‘If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all?’
It’s okay not to agree with each other. If fact, it’s better than okay, it’s American! But violence? Really? Over a book? There are better and more legal ways to protest things. Violence is never warranted.
