DEMOCRATS: No monopoly on morality

| December 4, 2020 1:00 AM

So, Evan Koch proclaims that the Kootenai County Democrats have a very big tent and they welcome and respect people who hold values that are different from their own so long as they are morally sound.

So long as they are morally sound? Really? Democrats are now the gatekeepers and authority on what is morally sound now. If we’re not being bludgeoned over the head by your speech police and threatened with terminations of employment for the “unapproved” use of pronouns, we’re being chastised for flying an American flag.

Here’s a suggestion. How about you show and exercise some of that tolerance you’re always barking about and leave people alone? The elitism and condescension of your morality litmus test is disgusting. Perhaps your morality might want to look at your Party platform of killing babies, defunding police, and the destruction of people’s livelihoods and well-being.
