On this very poignant day, here’s a comment I received from one of our readers & regular contributors.
It certanly puts things in perspective:
“The fact is, there are people whose minds are closed. They don’t care about the truth. Look at all the incidences of “hate” and you will find it stems from ignorance in most cases. I’m not referring to “ignorance” as people being “stupid”, I’m talking about people who are not exposed to or willing to consider “both” sides of an issue. I’m sure any expert on bigotry will back me up when I say that “hate” is a bi-product of ignorance.
The hard core Casey Haters have followed this case from jump. Their opinions and understanding of the so-called “facts” were reaffirmed over and over, time and time again through 2 and a half years of endless tabloid entertainment shows. They closed their minds to any contrary factual based opinions long ago and just like members of the KKK, Skin Heads and Al Qaida, those people will fight to keep their hatred. I personally have NO USE for people like that because in the end it isn’t about Casey Anthony, it is about the complete and utter disrespect and disregard for the Constitution of this great country and the Civil Liberties and Civil Rights of a fellow citizen.
So to all the Casey Haters: Go ahead, hate Casey as a person all you want. Hate what you erroneously “believe” she did. Men and women have died fighting for your right to have that opinion. It is your right to not like her, but damn it don’t mess with her civil liberties because then you’re messing with the rest of us too! Then you are no better then those who attacked our country 11 years ago!
The 11th anniversary of 9/11 is today. If America was founded on the principles adopted by many of the Casey Haters, those terrorists would have selected a different country as their target! For it is the VERY SAME FREEDOMS Casey Anthony Haters wish to deny Casey that the terrorists likewise deplore and attacked us for. Think about it.” — (Karen).
