Letter to the editor: Who are the real ‘fascists’?

Recently, while exiting a Philadelphia restaurant, an interracial couple was attacked by a mostly white mob. The mob threw a drink on the man and hurled objects at him; both the man and woman were pelted with insults and expletives. The couple was rescued by black police officers on Philly’s majority minority police force.

The couple was conservative activist and Trump supporter Candace Owens and her colleague Charles Kirk. The leftist mob called itself “the antifa” and were screaming/chanting things such as “1-2-3! White supremacy is the en-em-y!”

Owens, a 31-year-old African-American, has apparently committed the “crime” of refusing to snap to attention, obey and read the leftist Democrats’ script they write for minorities to recite. She has thus become a target of the left’s thug squads who seek to intimidate and silence her for her “thought crimes.”

Who are the real “fascists” here?

Trump supporters are often called “Nazis” by the left/Democrats. Trump supporters are the first “Nazis” to believe in democracy and free speech for all. The left knows they will lose any open, honest debate on the issues that involves logic and fact, so they seek to silence and shut down anything counter to their own twisted views. They don’t want people to think, only to obey, and to recite their leftist script like parrots.

I predict Owens will be elected the first female president in 2024. Let’s hope!

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
