Free speech not a license to insult and denigrate

There is a difference between freedom of speech and exclusionary, hateful rhetoric, and you owe the public you have the honor and responsibility to represent a higher level of discourse that reflects the democracy you have been chosen to serve.

A Mendham Township deputy mayor compared undocumented immigrants to “rabid, messy raccoons” infesting basements and President Donald Trump to an exterminator in an inflammatory Facebook post.

Two Roseland Borough Councilmen thought their text messages, containing racial and ethnic slurs, with one coining the term “ShwarzNigga,” did no harm and was funny.

A newly appointed member of the Bernards Township Board of Health has drawn fire for his verbal and written comments about the Liberty Corner mosque case and other hot-button issues.

And those are just the comments we know of that have landed on the pages of our newspapers covering the suburban, generally well-off comfortable suburbs of New Jersey.

Paid for by the Harris & Mascia for Bernards Township Committee, P.O. Box 75, Basking Ridge, NJ 07920-0075.
