Bagnato: Opinions should not be forced on others

Posted 3/16/21

A recent letter writer (“Distress has different meanings,” Sun City West Independent, March 3, 2021) opined that I have no right to be distressed with how far our country has fallen in the past two months, and that my flying the American flag as I see fit is unwarranted.

Bagnato: Opinions should not be forced on others

Posted

A recent letter writer (“Distress has different meanings,” Sun City West Independent, March 3, 2021) opined that I have no right to be distressed with how far our country has fallen in the past two months, and that my flying the American flag as I see fit is unwarranted.

That writer, of course, has no grounds to be forcing her opinion on me — or anyone else, for that matter — but given her clear adherence to the mantra of the cancel culture, this comes as no surprise. By the way, those “retired members of the military” she mentioned? Many of them fought for my right to do as I wish with my flag — and my life — whether she likes it or not. It’s called freedom, something the cancel culture wishes to take away from all Americans who value our Constitution.

As for the woman who saw absolutely nothing wrong with banging on my door at 9:10 p.m. last night to harass me about my flag, you’re on video. Try it again, or come anywhere near my home, and you may find yourself in jail for the night.
