  1. I was born and raised in Fort Bragg. I just wonder why some one would to a town of which they don’t like the name? There are so many towns around us with nice names. Why come here and try to change it and stir so much animosity in our town. Who is paying for this? It would cost everyone so much money, businesses and private citizens.

    • “cultural marxists” No such thing. Have you ever read any Marx? Have you read all three volumes of Capital?
      This has nothing to do with Marx, This is about using a “non-profit” to raise outside money to overturn the will of the majority. The CON artists want to make folks believe if you don’t agree with them, you are an uneducated, ignorant racist. Mr. Zwerling’s underhanded and manipulative tactics have just made more enemies. Follow the money

        • WTF are you talking about? You agree with the CON folks? I don’t give a fk about left/right, and I don’t give a fk about politicians. Just the facts ma’am.

  2. “educate attendees”, eh?
    The rhetoric is condescending and repulsive.
    There are some real problems in the world. This isn’t one of them.

  3. It’s weird that they’re having an event to “teach” people to feel offended by the name of a town they live in…especially when these “teachers” don’t even live in the town. One of them still chose to do business here though. Seems like a strange thing to do if the town name is so offensive though🤔
