We received a letter today from a grandmother concerned about being unable to express her political opinions without being vilified or having her vehicle vandalized.
I need to vent, I’m a minority in Humboldt county.
I am a Republican.
I am on Facebook a lot, I’m a 51 year old white grandmother, I was born in Humboldt county, but grew up in another state, came back in my mid 20’s, have raised my kids here, always love eureka, the laid back relaxed atmosphere.
I see all the hate on Facebook for the different candidates in the presidential race, usually keep my opinions to myself.
today i saw a post for Trump bumper stickers for sale,my husband and I have been discussing getting one for our vehicle, my concern was someone vandalizing our almost paid off car. I commented to the person that I would like one and the backlash began.
I thought this was still America, where you are entitled to have an opinion, apparently not. I was called a hater, dumb,and a few other choice words. Where have all the bigots come from…can we please have our old Humboldt county back! Thanks for listening, and hope you don’t have to do a story on the vandalizing of my vehicle once I get my bumper sticker.
