Stop advocating hate

Sunday, November 25, 2018

Shame on The Daily Reflector for recently publishing a letter condoning the “current wave of anti-Semitism” in America. We are a country proud of free speech but abhorrent of the advocation of hate.

After justifying the murder of Jewish Americans, the writer attacks Israel, the only democracy where there is freedom of the press in the Middle East, for “cover up” of the Saudi Arabian assassination of a journalist. In a bizarre manner, Israel is falsely accused of a conspiracy reminiscent of past anti-Semitic accusations, such as Jews drinking the blood of Christian children. The words of the honorable deceased Sen. John McCain, a true friend of Israel, are then abused in an attempt to further the author’s destructive agenda.

Publication of white supremacist, neo-Nazi propaganda in The Daily Reflector insults the good people of Eastern North Carolina. I expect never again to see such in the Reflector’s pages.

I urge Rep. G.K. Butterfield to vote no on bill H53/S52. This bill has already been presented to the legislature (H575) in 2017. It was not passed then and should not be passed now. It is obviously a method to curtail the rights of people to their reproductive health.

Reps. McElraft, Turner and…

Well folks I was going to focus my writing on just art matters. However, after listening again to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s street sweeper speech I’m inclined to combine the two.

Firstly if you have never heard it, just search MLK street sweeper and be prepared to be uplifted and…

I read with interest Ralph Tyson’s letter (Republicanism betrays the people, Feb. 7). He stresses “We the People.” Correct, and we the people elected Donald Trump — get over it!

He goes on to say Republicans are not constitutionalists — why don’t you…

Just a few short years ago our community came together to help fund the addition of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Vidant Hospital due to the large number of low birth weight babies being born in our region. This state-of-the-art facility helps these tiny persons in their struggle for life…

As I visit metropolitan areas to our west, there is clear evidence that many communities have effectively converged on their priorities in very visible ways. And when there is convergence, it seems as if progress is inescapable. I have grandchildren now, and they have experienced numerous…

Kudos to Holly Garriott, executive director for Pitt County Arts Council at Emerge, and to ECU professor of music, Carroll V. Dashiell Jr., for coordinating the amazing African American Music Series.

Concerts take place at Emerge Gallery on Evans Street on the second Friday of the month. If you…

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…

I have known many Catholic priests who were generous servant leaders. I have also had interactions with others who were emotionally abusive. I was taught to revere priests and it would never have occurred to me to question that treatment. Now we have the Pope acknowledging that priests and bishops…

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…
