It seems that America is rapidly becoming the land of the stupid and the home of the woke brainless. On Thursday, the Daily Caller reported that Paul Brodeur, the mayor of Melrose, Massachusetts, actually apologized for a sign that read, “the safety of all lives matter.”
We kid you not. Apparently, only the safety of certain people matter. And you can guess just who those people might be.
“I have just been made aware that the following traffic sign is being displayed on Main Street. I have ordered that it be taken down immediately and am taking steps to find out how this happened,” he said on Twitter. “I apologize to the residents of Melrose.”

The Daily Caller added:
Melrose Police Chief Michael L. Lyle condemned the message and announced an investigation into the matter in an online statement. He noted that a traffic officer was recently ordered to put a message of general traffic safety on the sign.
“I am aware that the phrase ‘all lives matter’ is commonly used as a misguided counter to the Black Lives Matter movement,” Lyle said. “On behalf of the Melrose Police Department, I sincerely apologize to our residents and anyone who drove past the sign today.”
“Preliminarily, the officer reported to me that he did not post the message with either malicious or political intent,” Lyle continued in his statement. “The officer, by his account, was trying to type a traffic safety message in the limited space offered by the electronic sign and did not realize the totality or impact of the words he had posted.”
God help us. It would appear the people running Melrose think George Orwell’s classic, “Nineteen Eighty Four” is an instruction manual. As if on cue, one person actually quoted from the book:
“Every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”- ‘1984,’ George Orwell

The response on Twitter was predictable:
So…all lives *don’t* matter, Mr. Mayor? 🤦🏻♂️

To the residents of Melrose: Please Vote Mayor Paul Brodeur out of office for not realizing that All Lives Matter.
He took an oath to protect all citizens that means All Lives!

Please! These people are obviously too stupid to hold office.
All lives DONT matter? THAT thinking is the problem!

There is no thinking allowed anymore, apparently.
Naturally, there were some who seemed to think the sign as written was hate speech:
Thank you for your quick action @MayorBrodeur ! This is hate speech, purely & simply. It does *not* belong in our community!

We hope this person was joking, but we’re not very hopeful. There are people out there stupid enough to think this really is hate speech.
