Bumper Stickers - Ithaca - Read English Thank Soldier Part 3

The third and last images from that Ithaca vehicle. (Part 1 and Part 2)

So why did this one take me by surprise given some of the non-politically corrrect (in Ithaca) bumper stickers?

It was the “COEXIST” sticker that I first spotted.

The “COEXIST” sticker is the gateway drug to a whole bunch of trite liberal bumper stickers to follow.

But not in this case.

One thing to note — the bumper sticker attributed a statement to George Orwell probably is a misattribution:

“In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”

Saw this vehicle in Ithaca recently.

When I snapped the photos, I just assumed from some of the stickers in the rear of the car that it was just a typical Ithaca liberal collection.

I’ll run those rear stickers in a later post.

But as I took a closer look at the photos, some of these stickers surprised me…

…  that someone was willing to wear them on her car … in Ithaca.
