Letter to the editor: American hypocrisy

| Friday, Jan. 11, 2019, 10:03 a.m.

Hypocrisy: 7-year-old girl dies in the custody of border patrol, and the left-wing media goes berserk. Had these been American citizens, the father would be arrested for child abuse and possibly murder.

Hypocrisy: Journalist is murdered by people in Saudi Arabia because he was a threat or inconvenience to them, and the left-wing media and many in our government go insane. Our government and “Supreme” Court legalize abortion because babies are a threat or inconvenience to someone. Not one word is heard from the left-wing media about protecting these children.

Hypocrisy: You train my son to go overseas and fight a war to secure another nation’s border. What about our border? When my son kills some of the enemy, you call it murder.

Hypocrisy: We believe in law and order, but we make our cities and states sanctuary places for criminals. Wild West towns were sanctuary places for criminals, always run by criminals for profit. Where do mayors and governors of today fit into this monstrosity?

Hypocrisy: Millions of dollars are spent on illegal immigrants each year while many American citizens live on streets and children are starving. Again, who pays for all these people? Us, with our tax money.

Hypocrisy: We “American citizens” letting this happen. It will destroy America for our children and grandchildren. The cost is too high.

Wake up, American hypocrites.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com 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.
