Both Democrats and Republicans have denounced the decision of the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia not to serve White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders. Many of us have called for greater civility, but one West Virginia man took a curious approach to instilling civility . . . by tossing chicken feces at the restaurant. Reginald Scott See, 51, is now charged with littering and disorderly conduct.
I honestly do not get these people on both sides who seem to long for an opportunity to degrade or shame others in public. Once again, there is a sense of a license to act in the most despicable ways by demonizing those with whom you disagree.
In the meantime, the person responsible for the controversy, Stephanie Wilkinson, has resigned from the local business board.
I view this as a healthy debate over the loss of civility in our society but we need to leave the chicken feces out of it.
