Our resident bigoted racist is upset this week that some people want to make Humboldt County an area that won’t tolerate hate speech.
Below is the full text of the resolution that was passed. I ask that you read this and see how this could possibly be interpreted as promoting sin or condemning god.
I’ve highlighted the actual action this resolution endorses in the final paragraph. It simply says don’t hate people. Something that really goes against Bramwell’s core beliefs.
