Letter: More to the story
Re “Sign of the times” (Sunday Monitor Local & State section, April 14):
The photo caption reading “a sign of President Obama and the word ‘impeach’ on the side of Loudon Road,” doesn’t tell the full story.
The picture included a Hitler-like mustache on the president, something that I and members of my congregation, Temple Beth Jacob, found deeply disturbing, especially coming less than a week after Yom HaShoa, Holocaust Remembrance Day, and just two days before the Greater Concord Interfaith Council’s annual Holocaust Remembrance Service.
When I approached the protesters to attempt to speak to them rationally, they spewed horrific anti-Semitism at me.
I would hope in the future you would tell the full story of such offensive displays and, further, that your headlines would be more accurate. The expression “sign of the times” indicates a situation evident in the current times. While many people may be unhappy with Obama, comparing him to Hitler and seeking his impeachment do not seem to be part of a current trend.
