Angle Supporters Under Attack
That's what Americans do. We might belong to different parties or support different candidates, but in the end, we're all on the same side.
At last night's County Council debate, each candidate shook hands with each other when it was all over, and even posed for pictures together. They may disagree, but in the end, they're all on the same side.
But there's another group that thinks it knows better than everyone else, and is bullying people with differing views. I call them the Gracedale Goons. That might strike some of you as harsh, but it's unfortunately the truth.
At last week's County Council meeting, I was attacked while filming a small group that heckles Ron Angle whenever he speaks. It makes it impossible for the rest of us in the peanut gallery to follow what is being said, but I guess that's their point.
Now, these same supporters of the man who claims he wants to restore civility, are urging people to boycott a business simply because its owner, an immigrant from Bulgaria, is a long-time Ron Angle supporter. Here's what they say.
"[I]f you ever want to take your family out for a good meal. Go anywhere except JR's Smokehouse in Wind Gap.
"There is a sign for former councilman Angle there as well as in front of the owners [sic] doublewide. I mean McMansion. He lives in a beautiful home. The owner is a immigrant success story which I applaud, however "no soup" for me after I saw the signs. I don't think he had enough oppression in his life when he lived in Europe, hence the support of the Nazi Party."
