Letter to the editor: Progressive coup

| Sunday, January 20, 2019 10:00 a.m

It’s a shame that the letter-writers fraught with anxiety and seething rage concerning President Trump are wasting so much energy and happiness when most of their stated reasons are, I believe, without basis in truth and fact.

It’s also a shame that so many intelligent, reasonable people have been convinced to believe such absurdities as the Russians were somehow responsible for Trump’s election and that even at our own peril, our borders don’t need securing and ICE should be abolished.

But, who can blame these folks for all their anger and misguided beliefs? There is a deafening, 24/7, wall-to-wall cacophony of exaggerations, insinuations and omissions about Trump, propagated by the progressive leftists. They now sadly control the Democratic Party of my past, the mass media, the entertainment industry, higher education and social media. Their constant din of attacks, along with Robert Mueller’s insidious, endless special counsel investigation, is enough overwhelming propaganda to brainwash anyone.

The collusion is not with the Russians. It’s among this nefarious, America-hating cabal of progressives. This collusion is truly affecting our elections, and is nothing short of a progressive coup attempt to remove a duly elected president from office.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
