Letter to the Editor: Conservatives should speak up


Tuesday, July 9, 2019

The one thing that bothers me the most about conservatives is when liberals speak out, with false innuendo and leftist pablum, it is our duty to speak up.

Another article by Dallas Ford exposes his intellectual shortcomings and obsession for watching the failing propaganda hate Trump media outlets of CNN and MSNBC. Even on a good night, CNN has less than a million viewers, and the least watched show on Fox news draws more viewers than the most watched counterpart on CNN. Let that sink in.

As usual, Mr. Ford’s latest article was full of false claims and outright lies. When he disparages the Trump White House guest book, he fails to mention Obama’s White House omitted the names of visitors to the Oval office, and defended his actions for doing so in federal court. If Trump is not for “law and order” then how did he receive the endorsement from the largest police union in the U.S., the National Fraternal Order of Police, along with the National Border Patrol Council and several other law enforcement agencies. Barack Obama, along with his cabinet of Ivy league academicians, had no clue how to run the country, as the nation suffered economic malaise and never once saw 3 percent growth during any year of his entire tenure.

Under the Trump economy, the country has experienced economic growth for a record 122 straight weeks, and unemployment for all demographic groups is the lowest in 50 years. That’s what happens when you have a “capable” person running the country Mr. Ford, who doesn’t fear the media, doesn’t espouse political correctness, doesn’t need the money, who is familiar with success, who doesn’t bow to foreign leaders and is not subservient to the interests of foreign nations. The only thing your extreme radical socialist party knows is free, free, free and for my money I’ll take freedom over free any day of the week. Why don’t you and your liberal buddies fess up and pay for the reparations, since it’s only fair for the oppressor to pay for the oppressed.

It was your Democratic party that embraced slavery, launched the KKK and had lynching parties, enacted Jim Crow laws, stood in the school house doorway, turned water cannons and attack dogs on blacks in Selma and almost killed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 with a record breaking 60-day filibuster. Maybe you and your party should heed the words of a former democratic first lady, who said “Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, small minds discuss people.”
