The smiling assassin


Yesterday my friend, who is one of the kindest, most positive, God-loving women I know, was bullied and “sandbagged” in front of Walmart. She was interrupted and shouted down repeatedly by four very rude people who were collecting signatures for Joshua Wood’s petition.

Joshua Wood was standing there watching. This is not how people in El Dorado County behave. Yes, we disagree with each other and sometimes we get loud about it. But generally we respect each other’s right to disagree. We don’t hire men to bully a defenseless woman who is merely exercising her right to freedom of speech.

If your petition was what you say it is, you would not have to use these kinds of tactics. You and your kind really don’t belong here.
