Letter to the editor: Disgusted with divided America
It is sad that folks hell-bent on dividing this country and those spreading false information and hate are given a voice with letters to the editor. I suspect many are those who cheer at Trump rallies or for Trump as he disparages everyone/anyone who disagrees with him, including war heroes and Purple Heart recipients like John McCain and Robert Mueller, Gold Star parents, the news media and so many more.
People at these rallies shout slurs as this vulgar, morally challenged president eggs them on. They are becoming part of the swamp, and “draining the swamp” is just a convenient slogan. I had hopes Trump could drain the swamp, but he grows it larger than it has ever been. How ironic that these people shout “lock her up” while Trump states he will “hire the best people” but surrounds himself with criminals, tax dodgers, liars and cheats.
The communist slur against Democrats is also getting old. These folks putting “communist” in front of “Democrat” have no idea what communism means (“a system of government in which goods are owned in common and are available to all
as needed”). I would ask people like letter-writer John T. Watson ( “The wall & Mollie Tibbetts’ murder,” Aug. 27, TribLIVE) if he really believes that his Democrat neighbors want to give up their properties and live with strangers?
How sad that our Republican representatives (Sen. Pat Toomey, Rep. Keith Rothfus) are so cowardly that they dare not mention this president’s name in a negative sentence. Get self-respect and deny this president the opportunity to further divide Americans.
