Boston residents and visitors spoke out Wednesday against anti-Muslim statements made on-line in response to a temporary mural on the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway.

“I think that reaction comes from a place of fear rather than a place of inclusion,” said Jeff Stineback, 35, as he shared lunch with his wife Jenn Stineback Wednesday afternoon.

I wonder if the "open-minded" libs quoted support, I dunno, Adam Smith, Mayor Menino and Mayor Boy Rahm.

The controversy should be over subjecting the public to crappy art.

“At the same time that the Greenway has always stood by the First Amendment and freedom of speech, going beyond that to biased ethnic slurs is too much,” she said.

Well...I wonder if Nancy Brennan feels the same way about the comments posted on Twitter after Lolo Jones placed 4th in the 100 meter hurdles the other day.

Though NBC reported how upset Lolo was about the comments, they never actually had the guts to report any of them...or that they even existed.

The Liberal creed:
"Freedoms for me but none for thee."

“I think that reaction comes from a place of fear rather than a place of inclusion,”...

Fear, or at least caution, is warranted when the subject's "holy" book demands that its practitioners convert, enslave or kill you. It's called self defense.
