To the Editor:
Unlike presidential elections past, no sooner was Donald Trump announced the winner of the most recent one, then the hate speech started.
Once people recovered from the shocking news (not all recovered), a fierce attack on the president and all Republicans for that matter, commenced.
Freedom of speech went by the wayside.
This was especially true in major colleges and universities where no one other than liberal, socialist voices were allowed to speak.
School presidents who disagreed were chastised or forced to resign. Since there is no shortage of liberal/socialist professors, it was allowed to continue.
The Hollywood crowd eagerly participated in the hate-Trump campaign.
Madonna thought about blowing up the White House, Kathy Griffin held a replica of the bloody head of the president (beheaded), in New York in a Broadway play.
A Democratic follower of Bernie Sanders ambushed a group of Republicans, shooting a few, one of them critically.
TV comedians have made jokes about the president, his wife, son and even a sexual joke involving the president and his daughter.
Johnny Depp said that it was time that a president was assassinated by an actor.
Robert De Niro wants to punch the president in the face — and on and on.
Perhaps the most shocking aspect of all of this was that the Democratic Party leadership was mostly silent, lending justification and credibility to the violence and proving to the USA that their goal is to destroy the president and the administration.
Reg Henry, a syndicated columnist, called this the Summer of Hate.
Perhaps, the person who said it best is someone who most probably doesn’t share my political affiliation.
Ms. Glenda Turck said (in a June 24 letter to the editor), “We are like a plane with only one wing, endlessly circling but unable to go anywhere.”
If the Democratic Party persists on delaying the landing, when it does land, it will take with it their aspirations to regain power.
