Left never sees middle, but always thinks it's right


To the Editor:

You know you’re an extreme liberal if the president’s pardoning of Sheriff Joe Arpaio upset you, but former President Obama setting free 1,700 criminals from jail and jihadists from Gitmo did not.

Or, you can claim you support free speech, but turn a blind eye when conservative speakers are banned on college campuses.

Trump supporters, you say, are bullies while ignoring the violent, destructive actions by Antifa.

“No one is above the law.” You pound the table over but you gave Hillary Clinton a pass for grossly mishandling top secret emails. Secret server?

Trump’s a liar, you scream, while pretending you didn’t notice when Obama said repeatedly, “If you like your healthcare plan and your doctor, you can keep them.”

And women should have “choice” when it comes to abortion and birth control, but not school choice when it comes to their kids’ education. What a farce.

The quicker our nation gets back to the middle, where rational and logical consensus takes place, the faster we’ll be able to solve the nation’s problems.

God help us.

Use facts and logic in political discourse and lead a happy and unapologetic life devoid of ever-evolving PC rhetoric...it drives the Left apoplectic.

If you're young and stupid and want to guarantee two terms for Trump, show up and protest every time your handlers tell you to.

Nothing demonstrates the lack of free thinking like accusing others of intolerance while breaking things and assaulting people (one should note that they rarely pitch a fit in Right-to-Carry States).

I'd love to see the Left's year-long National Tantrum end, but that won't occur until they get a nice nap in without getting a text or email telling them what to do and when to do it... "Useful Idiots"...

So true. Your list could have been ten pages long. The country is polarized because people won't compromise. Some things cannot be compromised, I agree. But on so many fronts we could find common ground. For now, let them scream out loud like snowflakes on the anniversary of Trump's election. For me, I'll be celebrating Hillary's loss. Her 'tour' and book show why we are so lucky to not have her in the WH. Now if she would only go bye bye.
