Free Speech, Political Correctness And Hate — Attention-seeker Kathy Griffin who some call a comedian circulated a photo of herself holding our President’s bloody head.
This isn’t speech to be defended. Speech to be defended concerns telling objective truths i.e. Nigger Jim was a character in Huckleberry Finn, and expressing opinions i.e. the theory of evolution is wrong.
Speech that unambiguously incites violence, much less murder, must not be defended. Note the word “unambiguously”. Certain snowflakes, who are ironically far more likely to be fans of Ms. Griffin than the rest of us, would claim that saying MAGA or that homosexuality is sinful incites violence. That is the Kafkaesque sea in which they swim.
In the 1960s and 1970s, funnymen like Redd Foxx, Don Rickles and Mel Brooks used ethnic humor in ways that would give the children who now set our social standards vapors. There was no hate in what they said, though. One always felt they actually liked the people they teased.
That is not the case for the “edgy” garbage that passes for “humor’ today. Holding the bloody head of a living person can only be construed as hate.

War Cemetery Reopens After Renovation — Poplar Grove National Cemetery near Petersburg, Va. was transferred from the War Department to the National Park Service in 1933. It was final resting place for 6,100 war dead, mostly from the Civil War,
The Park Service did not have the skill set to maintain the graves and the grounds fell into severe disrepair.
Last month, an 18-month renovation ended and the cemetery is now as it should be.
Thank you Bob Small for sending the link.
