Let “Freedom” Clink

New York City

Hypothetical question.

What if I stood on a street corner somewhere on the Upper West Side of New York, and had an empty and unloaded machine gun strapped to my back, a 32-ounce sugary soda in my hand, a tobacco cigarette in my mouth, and in my other hand, I was holding a sign that was reading, “The Holocaust didn’t happen, but it should have.”

How long would it take before someone would forcibly take me to that luxury hotel called Rikers Island?

Holding a sign I don’t believe, and a drink I won’t consume, with a drug in my mouth I won’t smoke, with an unloaded gun on my back that can’t possibly do any long range damage, in front of people known for their tolerance and sense of sarcasm and passion for civil liberties.

What could possibly go wrong?

Tolerance and civil liberties aren’t applicable logical straight white males.
