Do you think they don't provide an email address because they don't want their mailboxes full of hate mail, you know, like the in-boxes of the people whose emails they provide?
I must commend the Lexington CARES co-chairs who refuse to be intimidated by them. As much as Article Hate and Brian's Blog tries to vilify them, they stand up tall and proud. In this week's Lexington Minuteman they publish a guest commentary:
First, we need to understand the effects of this allegation on our community and on the individuals affected. An anti-gay group publicized the now-discredited story to news organizations and right wing media outlets across the country. One of these outlets published the e-mail address and home phone number of the superintendent of the Lexington Public Schools. This has lead to many out-of-state hate e-mails and phone calls to his home, in what looks like an attempt to punish him for doing his job. This is unacceptable and deeply regrettable. We hope that all Lexington residents will find a way to express their support for our superintendent as he does his job admirably under very difficult circumstances.So there you have it people, these cowards who publish other people's personal phone numbers and emails addresses would prefer you don't know who they are. Oh, and if someone on the web posts their information they cry harassment, ironic isn't it? But then again, cockroaches have always liked the cover of darkness, they scatter when the light comes on (or truth comes out.)
