I take exception to the mis-informed quote by Tammy Stewart on the front page of the Nov. 1 Times-News. That quote, "Nobody has the right to be hateful," is fundamentally incorrect. Show me in the Constitution or Bill or Rights that prohibits the right to hate. It isn't there. In fact, a citizen of this country does have the right to hate. However, that citizen does not have the right to act upon that hate. This shows a fundamental flaw in the education of the younger generations as it pertains to constitutional education.
As a veteran, I respect her right to voice an opinion, I also know I have a right to disagree with that opinion.
This shows a systemic problem with how the Constitution of our great United States is interpreted and taught to these generations. A respect for what its meanings are have been eroded over the last several decades.
God bless the veterans who defended our Constitution and its meanings, and the families who support those veterans.
