I read through the recent opinion piece on civil discourse (“Can we keep a civil tongue,” Oct. 22 Herald) with a growing — no an overwhelming — sense of irony. From a news outlet that routinely prints the hysterical anti-Trump columns from the likes of Eugene Robinson and Sid Schwab, it strikes me as just a little bit more than hypocritical that you would then print a piece bemoaning the lack of civil political discourse.
And that isn’t even mentioning the vicious political cartoons that you seem to relish placing into print. Don’t you think that civil political debate just might start at home?
Sadly, civil political debate is dead here in the United States of America. You, along with Michael Moore, Hillary Clinton, NBC News, the Black Lives Matter crowd, and pretty much the rest of the liberal establishment ave seen to that.
I doubt that my words will move you, but I feel compelled to make the attempt.
