To The Herald-Whig:
I wish to say I was dismayed and offended upon learning of the actions of the Quincy Human Rights Commission. I was dismayed that this group would become the self-appointed speech and thought police for Quincy and champions of the cancel-culture.
While they may feel the need to protect the proletariat from troublesome and off-message content and see the opportunity for virtue signaling, they have overlooked the human rights enshrined in the U.S. Constitution: i.e. freedom of speech and, by extension, freedom of thought.
I am offended that this unelected and apparently, un-accountable opinion group feels it is in a better position than the voters of a given ward to evaluate the job performance of a democratically elected representative. To paraphrase Joel Logue: I feel their actions shed light on a deeply undemocratic and Marxist thought process.
