Winston’s RNC vote, analogy off base
I take issue with both Braxton Winston’s recent vote on the RNC and his analogy defending it. Deciding at the last minute not to support a months-long city effort to secure the RNC is not like walking out of a restaurant because you don’t like the menu. Instead, it is like inviting someone into your home for dinner, then getting mad at them for things you have known about them all along, and then telling them to leave as they arrive on your front porch.
Opposing the RNC coming here should have been done when our leaders decided to pursue the event. Pulling the rug out from under the RNC would have been a classless, regrettable lack of commitment to our collective word, not suddenly deciding we did not like a menu.
