74. No Excuse
for such disgusting behavior. I married into a ReP family 25+ years ago and was always treated with respect and love. My husband's grandmother, a verrrry traditional southern woman, was a humane and compassionate individual and an icon to her children. During the civil rights struggles, she'd watch the TV (this was the 60's) and the horrors that occurred in the South. She was ashamed at the behavior of the white people..."This is just not right" I think she'd say the same thing now. For these people to use this sad occasion to make a political statement is beyond disgusting. It is low-life, PWT, impotent, fearful behavior. Underline the "fearful" these idiots are very scared.
I am sorry for your loss...your sister must have been a "helluva woman" and she has left her mark on the world. We are a better democracy because she had passion and she took action. :hug:
