Trump base silent in face of evil

Sunday, July 1, 2018

Many months ago I had ended a letter to the Reflector with, “Think Nazi Germany.” Well, taking children form their parents with little or no regard for their welfare clearly shows a Nazi type mentality of the Trump bunch. Trump's proposal, (not a law) backed by his Republican buddies, is even much worse than Dick Cheney's torture program, which broke international law.

Some people use the phrase “This is not who we are” Yes, it is exactly who we are! Trump and his type were elected by Americans, with continued support.

This atmosphere has been building for many years, mainly brought on by Bible thumpers. The evil, so-called Christians have infiltrated our government, repeating lies against liberals, which is doing great damage to our nation. The types of Falwells, Perkins, Reed, Limbaugh, Huckabee and others with their constant lies and against anyone/anything that might hamper their agenda is a winner with their non-thinking flock.

People who haven't seen it coming either don't care, or might be the same types as the Trumps. Privatizing schools is a step toward brainwashing. I notice that the so-called Christians haven't condemned the Trump bunch who do the same type of evil deeds that “Christians” have falsely claimed that liberals did/do.

I haven't penned a letter for many months knowing that Republicans and some Democrats have closed minds and can't handle truths. Perhaps this letter is to rub their faces into what they have sowed with their spoiled, partisan and continued hate-filled support for those who are destructive to this nation. Yes, millions who don't know basic right from wrong get on a team and their team must win, but what have they won when they win? They're losing and don't even know it.

We could have had Bernie Sanders, but no!

The current governmental regime of Israel exercises entirely too much influence on American foreign policy. Yup. The oft-touted “current wave of antisemitism” in America is indicative of the fact that perspicacious folks in America recognize that the best interests of America do not…

On Nov. 16, 2018, following the signing of the Cyber Security Agency Act, President Trump was asked for his assessment of the ongoing trade war with China. The President responded: “We put on tariffs on $250 billion worth of goods … Our country has done very well, and China, as you…

Recent Daily Reflector editorials and comments in the Public Forum have raised my eyebrows and my concerns about the sustainability of the human race. How can we continue if we are our greatest enemy? Every person I know has, and is entitled to, a unique perspective and personal opinion. Our…

A recent submission in the Public Forum suggested that to follow Jesus, I must vote Republican.

For me it is a life-long struggle and my highest calling to be in the fold of the good shepherd. Nonetheless, I don’t believe that scripture suggests that I can take my stand beneath the cross of…

In 1986, internationally-renowned singer Janet Jackson made the inspirational song, “What Have You Done for Me Lately?” Elected officials should actualize the meaning of that song. Oftentimes, elected officials make shallow promises, kiss babies, and hypocritically “press the…

Consider the following Republican presidents: Richard M. Nixon, Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush. Each a two-term, or twice-elected president; each a more disastrous presidency than its predecessor on the list (Nixon posing a threat to the Constitution via Watergate, Reagan posing a greater threat…

Orange County District Court Judge Beverly Scarlett recently compared Silent Sam to Hitler and, by extension, the human suffering of slaves to that of the Holocaust. Based upon her remarks, it is not clear how well Judge Scarlett knew Sam or Adolf Hitler.

Statistically speaking, Sam had not…

This letter is in response to the letter titled “Unjustly defaming Dixon again” by Willie Roberts that appeared in the Wednesday, Oct. 31 edition.

Roberts stated that “White women have historically been used, wittingly or unwittingly, to destroy black men’s lives. Their…

What’s with you, Vic Corey? One second you are crowing how Trump is the reason for you being richer, the next you are, as always, worshipping your idea of a “new Christian.”

First, the U.S. is not a business; it is a country. Trump’s planned bankruptcies, his finding ways…

Is it any wonder that the attendance is dropping in the NFL when you can only pay the head man, Roger Godell, $40 million a year and have as many as five commentators sitting around a table in their $500-plus suits as they blurt out that which you and I are looking at? Not to mention another two…
