Letter: Some vandals are terrorists, while others are celebrated

Posted

As readers may know, there’s been a rash of “racially-incendiary” and “hate-filled” stickers in Warren — and now Bristol — which depict Nazism, the KKK and white supremacy.

We can expect Mel Bynum of the East Bay Diversity Group and activist Dyshell Palmer to organize another much-ballyhooed demonstration as theirs outside Warren Town Hall on April 19 (the anniversary of Freddie Gray’s death). A crowd of reportedly hundreds (all vaccinated, I hope) joined high-profile bloviators like Black Lives Matter Rhode Island founder-director Gary Dantzler and hatesticker survivor Joyce Katzberg in passionate denunciations of separatist adhesive while state Reps. Jason Knight and June Speakman nodded along like collectible bobbleheads.

Assuming the fly-posters are genuine bigots, BLM supporters might observe that they unobtrusively tagged the backsides of street signs and the posts of lights which, as a result, remained functional. These violent extremists can spread hate without breaking glass, starting fires or looting storefronts—all of which BLM has found necessary to spread peace, love and understanding in Portland, Minneapolis, Chicago and other blue utopias.

An ironic 2x2 decal of Hitler — paired with the title of a rap song, “White Boy Summer” — is a credible threat for the Rhode Island Fusion Center, but mass murderer Che Guevara can be worn on an XXXL t-shirt, in public, with compliments from other liberals. Wheatpasting white boys are “domestic terrorists,” rather than mere vandals, simply because the powerful and wealthy do not condone their radicalism, unlike that of the left, which has become the status quo.
