The majority of my posts here on my blog are also sent to the Rhino Times Letters to the Editor. A great many of them are printed there and, as you might expect, there are more than a few who vehemently disagree with me, and in some cases, will attack me with accusations of being a racist, a misogynist, a homophobe, and in some cases a neo-Nazi.
With that said, this is what was posted in reply to my latest letter that was printed on 12/17/2020, written by someone calling themselves Alan Dean Marshall and here on my blog was titled “Is This the Future?”
“Alan Dean Marshall on December 17, 2020 at 1:44 PM”
“I heard Alan Marshall has a shaved head and a swastika over his heart. Just sayin…”
Can you say “libel”? I knew you could.
Normally I would not let this bother me, but for some reason this time it did. People that know me will of course laugh this off. I guess part of the reason it bothers me so much is as a member of the Town Council of Pleasant Garden I feel this reflects on the people that have voted (multiple times) to put me and keep me on the Council and makes them appear to be of the same mindset I am being accused of. THAT is what really upsets me.
