It’s time for a lesson in reality.
Actually, that’s not accurate. This is a lesson in how reality becomes distorted. Usually, purposefully distorted in order to feed a convenient narrative.
Montgomery Mayor Todd Strange tried a little distorted reality last week, when he started criticizing everyone – and by ‘everyone,’ I mean the not-us-but-them sort of everyones – for crime issues in the city.
(While I will use Strange’s words, make no mistake, these comments and attitudes are not limited to him. They can be found in most every city in this country, especially around the South, and they are directly responsible for the rise in stupidity and hate and the reduction of decency.)
