Miro & the Burlington City Council – This is the kind of sickness and perversion you have wrought. Just an hour ago, while walking my dog, I found this pamphlet taped on a telephone pole at the corner of South Prospect & Cliff. Let me quote its entirety [profanity, racist and sexist epithets edited]:
“Hurray!!! 3 more years of killing the poor!!! [Expletive-deleted] you KKK [sexist epithet]! Sincerely, an Angry-[N-word racial epithet]” All this with Miro’s photo in the background.
This is the result of the nihilism of Social Justice Theory along with its cousins Critical Race Theory and Postmodernism. If we don’t return to the Founding Principles of this country – Classical Liberalism – for the briefest of terms, we’re going to experience a kind of misery nobody wants.
