Columnist Schwab should watch out for the Red Wave

I am extremely concerned that columnist Sid Schwab is only one election away from being declared a domestic terrorist. I come to this conclusion by simply applying the current standards used by the current administration to label anyone who voices an opinion that might be at all conservative as a possible “domestic terrorist.” The “might be at all conservative” crowd would include anyone who thinks responsible gun owners should be able to keep their guns, police are a good idea even if not a perfect one, you are supposed to express you opinion at school board meetings, city, town and county council meetings, that’s why we have them.

You see, right here in America, people who express these views too loudly are being called domestic terrorists. But what if the Red Wave really happens and suddenly people who espouse liberal ideas too loudly are now labeled domestic terrorists. And that is why Schwab should be very careful about labeling people and lumping them into groups where they are easier to insult and ridicule. And if you think that is not possible liberals, you have forgotten your past when you were fighting to be heard. This country is better and deserves better than people like Schwab who really do nothing more than sling insults aimed at degrading and discounting large groups of people simply because they have a different view on something.
