I wonder if Jim Walters would be so fervent in his “free speech” that he would wear a KKK supportive T-shirt or tattoo or perhaps an Aryan Nation T-shirt and then see what kind of comments or reactions he has.
People are sickened by the brutal murders by Islamic extremists. They welcome death to honor “God” because this life is only a preparation for “paradise.” This is a medieval, twisted belief that moderate Muslims reject.
I write to you today to strongly disagree with your July 1 editorial. As the former Chairman and now Ranking Member of the Senate Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, I have been and will continue to be supportive of Scott Air Force Base and the skilled men and women who work there.
