When I blunder, I tend to blunder big. It's generally due to thoughtlessness. I suppose I should have seen the other side of the story, but I did not.
I took a meme that I saw on Twitter. I didn't edit in any way, but posted it to Facebook. And I apparently screwed up big time when I did that. I blundered badly, blowing beyond belief. I've been taken to task; I, unfortunately, cannot refute the logic used. It doesn't change my opinion on the issue, but I was an insensitive boob, a total munch. Sometimes, I need to stop and think how it really looks. I did not do that this time; it makes me look like an intolerant, anti-Semitic jerk. I fear I may have damaged the relationship and I may have destroyed more than I could repair.
A simple "I'm sorry," isn't really adequate. And yet, I have nothing else to offer. I don't even have the slightest idea how to begin.
I'm beating myself up over this... it's apparent bigotry, from which I thought I had at least some immunity. It doesn't change facts, but it does make me take a long, hard look at myself.
D.F, I am asking you to forgive my stupidity. Sometimes (And all too often) I tend to act before I think.
