Minick’s entire piece glorifies fighting and dying for a lost cause. Is this really what The Smoky Mountain News is about, especially at this hour in American history?
The same forces that invaded the Capitol building are now threatening to repeat their attack during the inauguration, as well as invade all 50 state capitals with guns.
This is no time to encourage killing and dying.
Minick’s piece and the timing of it are entirely unacceptable.
