Stand Against Hate--Kudos to the Chief of Police in Sabaattus, Maine

A town-office wannabe David Marsters of Sabbatus, Maine posted a hate-filled threat to the president on Facbook.  He took down the opinion and was appropriately investigated by the Secret Service .  I will not repeat what he said in this forum as it is disgusting and vile.  This man is no child.  He is a senior adult.  The story was carried on NECN and you can Google it to see the nature of his ugly Facebook entry.  I emailed the Chief of Police Ward of Sabbatus, ME a kudo for standing up against hate!


Kudos to the Chief of Police in Sabbatus, Maine for standing up to yet another message of hate, and destructive violence levied at our oft-besieged president whom so many love.  David Marsters or any man who could write such racist and hate-filled opinion on Facebook is not only unethical but rude disrespecting the high office of the nation's presidency. First Amendment passionate critical analysis of policies of all our commanders-in-chief, even a resounding reelected one, is to be encouraged but a message saturated with ugly racist hate infused with a call to violence is not what, I believe, our framers had in mind when they created our simple document of Constitutional magnificence.

It is altogether fitting and proper that David Marsters be soundly defeated in any election he may seek. He and those like him are a stain and blight upon our country no matter how First Amendment protected they may be.  Marsters and extremists like he should be eschewed by men and women of good will everywhere. 

Placing his opinion on Facebook can be seen by millions in an instant and reported on the news which it was even IF Mr. Marsters ultimately took the post down. What one writes especially if laced with racial invective and violence can be taken by some mentally unbalanced person as something they want to, God forbid, do.

Let's hope the people of Sabattus, Maine never allow Mr. Marsters to win or see the inside of public office ever!  Thanks to Chief Ward again for a very effective and articulate response which I viewed on NECN news this morning. Our nation surely could use more fair-minded people like he.

WHY WE MUST ELECT DEMOCRATS ALL ACROSS THE NATION.  WE MUST STOP THE INCESSANT RACIST INVECTIVE.  A VOTE SUPPRESSED ANYWHERE IS A THREAT TO THE VOTE EVERYWHERE!!
