Standing up for the courage of your convictions, or not...

Nicki, over at The Liberty Zone, has a post up about a kerfluffle in Pittsburg, KS regarding a 'God Bless America' banner that has been in place on the Pittsburg Post Office since 9/11.  It was paid for out of the private pockets of the postal workers, some of whom were military and others. 

Well, some asshat (most likely a new hire at Pittsburg State, if I were a betting woman) decides to call the Freedom From Religion Foundation (a Wisconsin-based group) and have them pitch such a bitch that the locals had to take the banner down.  The local populace is now fighting back at this by having replicas printed and are placing them on private businesses, fences, etc. all over town.  I definitely applaud this action.

But one of the things that really gets me about this is that the twatwaffle who started this brouhaha is still unknown--he or she is hiding behind the FFRF and has never been publicly identified.  He or she did not have the strength of his or her convictions to go to the post office and complain and thus become known. 

And so the locals do not know who this person is and thus do not have the ability to choose whether or not they want to have anything to do with this troglodytic waste of oxygen.   Being that the FFRF is an out of state concern, I think that whatever 'local' started this should have some skin in the game s/he started.  It must be nice to just be able to sic the brute squad on someone and not have to bear any consequences for your actions.
