Democrats not innocent of prejudicial actions

Regarding the article on Providence’s countywide study on prejudice (“Providence countywide study says prejudice still on the rise,” The Herald Sept. 15): I have found as of late that the Democratic and progressive left also has much to account for and answer to on the same subject. While I do not truck with Trump and did not vote for him, nor did I vote for Hillary, the left has become increasingly militant and has to answer for its actions. I for one do not tolerate these actions on either side but as the article states and implies in some cases the “right” if mostly at fault. I have found this not to be true!

I would point you to Jerry Cornfield’s recent article, (“Bullying, harassment, intimidation’: Dems penalize a leader,” The Herald, Sept. 4) about Jason Call’s proclivities in that regard. I would also point out that we had a similar person show up the Mill Creek City Council meeting a while ago who was of the same vein protesting changes in the school district boundaries and repeated his performance in a much more aggressive manner at a Everett School District meeting at Jackson High. He managed to alienate everyone who came in contact with him. Not a good picture for the Dems to present.

There was another self-described progressive individual behaving in a similar manner a few years ago on a marriage equality ballot who indicated that to the media he was going to phone those who signed the petition and have a conversation with them. Really, one might think only the Dems have a right to have their opinion heard.

These are but a few of this type of antics that I have seen. I my opinion the Dems are just as biased and bigoted as some on the right but in their own peculiar way. Many become quite taken aback when present with this proposition. Personally, I would not live in a society ruled by either one!
