To the editor:
Using hateful talk is counterproductive and un-American. Why would anyone use similar commentary to make a point?
I am referring to Michael Kerins’ June 11 letter. His entire commentary was to demonize and brutalize another with intense animosity and dislike. This kind of behavior has been typical for those who cannot or will not face the fact that Donald Trump is the president of the United States. Many presidents before Trump were playing president rather than being president, and the country was not functioning for the people. John F. Kennedy said it best: “Ask not what the country can do for you, ask what you can do for the country.”
Taking a position of dislike, even hatred in the face of Trump’s record as it applies to putting the people and country first is nothing more than personnel and party allegiance in spite of the real needs of the nation.
The knowledgeable people Kerins was referring to are former federal prosecutors. They were willing to sign a letter repudiating the findings in the Mueller Repor, and all concluded that multiple charges of obstruction of justice should be charged against the president. There are several cases where federal prosecutors were less than honest in their findings.
This contradiction of your champions was explained on Feb. 6, 2018, by Ethan Huff on the Bundy Ranch case. Huff used the title, “Federal prosecutors exposed as criminal THUGS who lie, threaten and withhold evidence to win prosecutions against citizens.”
Kerins has taken a political party position. He has forgotten how we as a nation arrived where we are today, and I can assure you it is far from laughable. Our local, state and federal government agencies have more socialists and communists in official positions than ever before.
When the Jan. 10, 1963, Congressional Record included “Current Communist Goals” — it was ignored as laughable. On Jan. 11, 1956, the leader of the Soviet Union said, “You Americans are so gullible. No, you won’t accept communism outright, but we’ll keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you’ll finally wake up and find you already have communism.”
Today, there are at least nine of the 45 “Communist Goals” being practiced in the United States, and that is not laughable. I am not amused to see that Congress had several freshmen elected to Congress that speak out for anti-Semitism and champion socialist programs. Don’t look now, Kerins, but the remaining “Communist Goals” are right around the corner.
If Donald Trump were to lose the 2020 election you can kiss democracy and our way of life goodbye through no fault of the current president of the United States.
