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!

A big shout-out to Alison Lord Stuart for her piece on voter IDs in Tuesday’s paper.

You are right on the “mark” regarding voter IDs. My husband and I have lived in many states, all of which required a voter ID at election time — until we came to North Carolina.

At each…

Last night (Monday, Feb. 11) I attended ECU baseball banquet in the new student union. There were almost 600 people there and they were treated to a great program.

Some facts that were revealed were that this team has a 3.44 grade point average which is the highest in the American Athletic…

Donald Trump once again exhibited his extreme ignorance, irrationality and intransigence in contradicting the analysis of his three top intelligence chiefs before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Jan. 29. It's hard to imagine how pompous a person must be to think he knows more than his FBI…

Mr. Kammerer's fine article on the Jones-Lee House (in The Daily Reflector on Sunday) highlights the urgent need to save one of the few remaining architectural structures of historic and aesthetic value left in our poor city.

Years and years of willful destruction and bureaucratic neglect pushed by…

It's official. We just had the longest government shutdown in history over nothing.

Democrats have agreed to fund $1.375 billion for 55 miles of physical barrier along the border, which is only a little more than what Trump would have gotten under a continuing resolution that funded the government…

Title IX has been a positive thing except where men's programs have been canceled to create slots for women. You can call it Title IX "balance," but ECU has 11 women's sports and only nine for men. To create this disparity ECU added women's lacrosse. Last time I checked, the state of North Carolina…

From Lake Norman to the Outer Banks, boating has long been a cherished pastime for many families across North Carolina.

Yet while many are familiar with the personal benefits you experience during a day on the water, the important economic contributions of boating are lesser-known.

Recently Courtney Patterson, a state NAACP leader, told a Greenville audience that the gains made by the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 are in jeopardy. He encouraged Americans to be vigilant in protecting these rights and to exercise the privilege of voting.

When Stacy…

I am tired of Democratic presidential hopefuls and their clean energy nonsense. Windmills and solar panels are generally a waste of time and money. Windmills don’t turn when there is no wind and solar panels don’t work when there is no sun. In each case the energy generated is DC, for…

If the legislature adopts the Carolina Cares plan advocated by Rep. Greg Murphy, hundreds of thousands of people will still be showing up at our hospitals without coverage, giving the hospitals the excuse to pad what they charge the rest of us in order to pay for treatment for the uncovered.…
