Blind obedience and acceptance is not patriotism. It’s blind obedience and acceptance.
We rightly and lovingly memorialize those who died for us. They did not die defending a flag or an anthem. They died defending our sacred and unique institutions, which do not include blind obedience and acceptance. Nor do they include endless and regular massacres of school children.
I stand with and for San Francisco Giants manager Gabe Kapler.
