Fayetteville is the greatest and we love this community. I personally want to say “thank you” for the dozens of calls, emails, letters, tweets and texts we have received from like-minded residents of Fayetteville who share our concerns, love and passion for this community. Unfortunately, I cannot share their thoughts with you because we must respect their privacy and take precautions as not to expose them to the “cancel culture” mob whose mission is to retaliate against those whose opinions and demands do not adhere to theirs. They do this regardless of race, color or creed. No one is exempt. This being the case, I thought it would be fitting to remind them and the community of our inherent constitutional rights and the amendments therein that separate us from totalitarian Marxist, socialist and communist tyrants. You know, that document that makes America, America. Home of the brave and land of the free! So, to this end, thanks to the Free Speech Center at Middle Tennessee State University, the North Carolina Press Association with the support from USA Today and the Associated Press we are sharing with you a national campaign featuring celebrities to remind us about the value and importance of freedom of press, speech and other freedoms of the First Amendment.
