What Happened To The Democratic Party?

To the Editor:

Whatever happened to the Democratic party? I feel America has been cursed by it. The way Judge Kavanaugh and his family have been treated is disgraceful. The way the Democratic Senators spoke to him without any courtesy or respect was bad enough, but then revealing Professor Ford’s letter after the hearing was finished and treating him as if he were guilty really showed how low the Democratic Party has sunk. And it was just a ploy to delay the hearing.

After all the abuse of women by the Democrats and their friends Clinton, Weinstein, and Conyers, to go after an innocent man is something beyond hypocrisy. All the hatred and threats against a man and his family is the responsibility of the Democratic Party and friends in media and entertainment industry and in many of our universities.

The shooting of Representative Scalisi and the assault on Senator Rand Paul, those who hate America rioting on campuses driving out Republicans and conservative speakers; the hate mongering; the obscene attack on Ivana Trump... A mother holding her child and to be spoken about like that. And DeNiro shouting and people in the audience cheering! Really, what has happened to our country? All the Trump haters saying anything they want, no matter how hateful or threatening.

I am 69 years old and have never seen anything like it. It is taking a toll on our country. It’s degrading and debasing our culture, especially our young people.

My father served in World War II; he was a good and decent man, and I was lucky to have him as my father. If he was alive now, he would be in shock. I was always taught to love and respect America, and that meant having respect of the President, even if he was not your choice. I thought President Obama was terrible, but I would never think of saying the things being said about President Trump.

To Senator Blumenthal: And now you lie about the latest FBI report, as if a cover up. After all the investigations into this man’s life, you are still saying he is guilty. Where are your decency and your honor? Why don’t you do America a favor. First, take off the American flag from your jacket. And then leave the country, leave America. And in time, maybe we can forget about you.
