This story is so staggeringly idiotic that it makes you wonder how anyone in their right mind, much less an elected official, could possibly have not realized at the time just how asinine it is. Just wait till you read what one Indiana mayor did recently:
Less than one month after of the massacre of Sikhs in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, Mayor Tonya Hoeffel of Garrett, Indiana has further offended the Sikh community. Mayor Hoeffel walked into a local convenience store, observed pamphlets about the Sikh religion on the store counter, and picked them up before throwing them in the trash bin.When manager and part-owner of the store Kulwinder Singh Nagra asked Mayor Hoeffel why she threw out the informational pamphlets, she replied, “It’s against my beliefs. This is against Christianity.”
Although Mayor Tonya Hoeffel has since apologized, her behavior demands more thoughtful analysis and response.
No, I’m afraid it doesn’t. This one is very, very simple. Hoeffel is a moron and a bigot and she should be thrown out of office immediately. That’s far too inane to merely apologize for.
