The Umbrella--a touching story

The Umbrella--a touching story

I do not know if the following is true, but it was passed on to me by a friend.

On a rainy afternoon in Edmonton recently a group of protesters were gathered outside a hospital handing out pamphlets on the  "evils"  of vaccines and vaccine passports. They said it violated their rights ???

I politely declined to take one as I entered the hospital.     

 There was an elderly woman behind me and a young (20-ish) female protester who offered her a pamphlet, which she too politely declined.      

The young protester gently put her hand on the old woman's shoulder and in a patronizing voice said, "Don't you care about freedoms and rights"?  

The old woman looked up at her and said: "Honey, my father died in France during World War II protecting our rights and freedoms. I lost my husband to Covid, and now my daughter has it. " 

So how can a naive, privileged, ignorant, self-centred bimbo like you have the right to stand here, talk about rights and freedoms, badmouth our healthcare workers, protest in front of hospitals where the healthcare system is overwhelmed by this pandemic and sadly does not care about our health and safety? If you touch me again, I'll shove this umbrella up your ass and open it."

Like john Rylance I believe in folks rights to voice their views. My only concern is how they have opinions with their heads in rectal defilade.

The prospect of such a deep anal insert brings tears to the eyes, Royce.

The answer to the question is yes I believe in your freedom to voice your opinions, and my rights to disagree with their views.6
