Well, that is 10 minutes of my life I will never get back.
However, in all seriousness, I am hopeful the country, and even the citizens of Bethlehem, have had enough of that type of inflammatory rhetoric being cloaked in the word “new.”
No, Lehigh University is not a “hot bed of liberal marxists who have been lying to your children.”
NO . . . Dr Roy is not “in on the Marxist conspiracy.”
Paige Van Wirt is not “their leader.”
The people I have listened to calling in to Bethlehem City Council meetings have offered research and data, not rhetoric and fear mongering.
And I believe that will continue to be the case in spite of the best efforts of the “Good Neighbors Alliance” to divert attention from what is really important.
In full transparency, I have called in and will continue to do so, and I am definitely not a confused Marxist child as my good neighbors would imply.
