Letter to the editor: Deplorable

By LEE VAN LANDUYT | Hillsboro

Four years ago, a minority of Americans, through an antiquated and fatally flawed Electoral College, elected Donald Trump president. His motto was “Make America Great Again.” His motto should have been “Make America White Again” based on those who chose to follow him. White supremacists, neo-Nazis, KKK members, armed anti-government militants, and anti-choice church folk are his loyal base.

Four years of chaos and dysfunction have caused many Republicans to jump ship. Mitch McConnell continues to plot with Trump. Wisconsin’s Sen. Ronald Johnson has sullied his own reputation by holding sham senate hearings on discredited voter fraud claims. The original party is now gone, devoid of ethics, morals, and “Republican” values.

Trump has disparaged veterans and the military. He’s dismissed Covid as a “hoax” while nearly 350,000 have died from it. He’s pardoned four unrepentant “Black Water” murderers. He’s pardoned loyalist felons. He’s defended Putin over our nation’s own national security’s warnings.

Donald leaves office in January. During his last weeks, he is dismantling or sabotaging everything he can. Trump is systematically dividing and destroying our nation from within. He is leaving Putin a very happy foe! President-Elect Biden and Vice-President Elect Harris have much to do.

    This week’s wolf hunt happened without public input, without science, and with very little legally required consult with the Tribes.

    Sweets, candies, and chocolate are a Valentine’s Day tradition! Unfortunately, tobacco products like little cigars and vapes have those flavors, too.

    Letter to the editor: What could be more racist than to kill an unborn child?

    February 4th, 2021
    by

    As I listen to people today use the word “racism,” I pause to consider … what could be more racist than the evolutionary thought that I learned as a young person in public schools that the next step between the ape and the man was the black man?

    Politics as usual, it appears. The Republicans haven’t a leg to stand on with the Trump impeachment and wish it would all go away.
