Would you boycott a bookstore because it hosted an author you disagreed with? When did McCarthyism become part of the mainstream? Before we patronize a bookstore should we investigate their loyalty to what we believe to be correct? “Are you now providing or have you ever provided a forum for members of this party or that?”

In order for this thing called America to work it requires open forums that allow free expression. It also requires tolerance, even of those beliefs that we may despise. Without that the Bill of Rights is meaningless. Intolerance is un-American.
