No valid claim to moral high ground
After reading the letter to the editor in Thursday’s paper, my first reaction was: Really?
The letter’s title “Truth, character don’t seem to matter” better describes today’s Democratic Party leaders. It was written as if the Democratic Party had the moral high ground. Gee, isn’t that the same party that started a war to protect the right to own slaves? Didn’t they use segregation, Jim Crow Laws and the KKK to oppress black people after they had been freed? And having lost those battles, they now embrace abortion which has claimed more than 50 million unborn lives since Roe vs. Wade. Please explain to me how killing an unborn child is compassionate, shows empathy or demonstrates moral values. I would ask the same about keeping people dependent on taxpayer-funded handouts.
The attack on President Donald Trump is good for a laugh. I have witnessed a quarter century of corruption by Democratic leaders such as Bill and Hillary Clinton and later Barack Obama. But I have yet to hear a word of protest from the mainstream media or people like this letter writer.
But this only proves a point raised in another letter written by Scott Kennedy: Democrats believe they can do no wrong.
