Stifiling political expression through vandalism
These pictures were taken near Delmont, SD recently of a pair of Rounds for Governor signs that were vandalized. And you know, it speaks volumes about the person who did it. And the word that comes to mind is "impotence."
No, not the kind of impotence that requires viagra. It's the kind of impotence where a person feels so inadequate and inarticulate that the only form of political expression they have is the destruction of another person's show of support.
Debate? Not for them. The ability to promote their own views? They can't. Simply refuting the opinion of one who believes the opposite? They'd rather hide in the closet.
Am I heaping too much scorn on the perpetrator? I don't think so. This is shameful, and the kind of act that would have to take place under cover of darkness. Because the kind of person who would do it likely spends most of their time fearing the light of day.
