I liked this op-ed written by Alex Kack about his recent 15 minutes of fame and why he was at that city council meeting.

As much as some people may want me to, I’m not going to say that laughter and mockery are always the way to counter those who harbor hateful ideologies or preach against freedom, equality, and social justice. I was lucky in many ways to be where I was: inches away from hate but miles away from danger. In another locale, or with different bigots, I could have been in serious trouble.

Laughter is powerful, but it’s not enough on its own.
