Regarding the Tuesday letter, “Can we find spine before it’s too late?”:
The writer states, “Democrats who have, let’s face it, become the enemy.” It is truly sad that this writer hates American values so much that he would make such a radical statement. One of America’s fundamental moral values has always been that we are a country built on tolerance. I think it is quite immoral to talk about Democrats as the enemy because they think differently than the writer.
He based this outburst on a false accusation, “… far more ominous, is the smug rooting for our enemies by Democrats and their leaders.” He was referring to the recent derogatory speeches made at the U.N. and other places last week. I would like the writer to provide one quote of a Democratic leader that supports his outburst. Since I heard or read nothing that supports this accusation I have to presume that Rush or Fox News implied this erroneous nonsense and never provided any facts (what’s new?), but still got people worked up, just as they had planned.
Has the Republican propaganda machine been so effective that they are creating a civil war in our own country?
If this nation is to survive we need leaders who will bring it together, and not scheme to divide the nation in order to win elections. The letter is a sad example of the inevitable outcome of the politics of hate as practiced by the Republican leadership.
