It’s sickening to watch another one of those viral videos: A bigot attacking a Muslim family eating dinner at a restaurant in the Norristown, Pa., area. The man unleashes a tirade of hate-filled language at a married couple and their two small children minding their own business.
Their “crime?” Dressing in different clothes. Looking and sounding different. Following a different religious tradition.
What shocks the conscience must not go unanswered. Liberty-loving, tolerant people must condemn this and stand up for minorities.
Sadly, I do expect my city will become another Norristown one day. I trust we will stand up against the hater and defend those who are wronged and attacked.
If ever America needed to have a spine, it is now.
No more Norristowns.
