Hate messages unacceptable

TWO recent letters in the Argus regarding bilingual posts and signs were, frankly, racist postings that deteriorated in the letters online area.
We read language fascists and abusive language that, if it were aimed at any other minority in Wales, would result in court action. The Welsh language is enshrined in law, yet attacked on an almost daily basis with no comeback – again a situation that doesn’t happen to any other minority in Wales. Isn’t it time the Argus monitored these hate messages against the Welsh speaker? It’s one thing to question bilingual access, quite another to ridicule and attack the people using it. When it gets personal, it is hate and bullying, nothing less.
