Is America heading down fatalistic path?
Letter to the Editor generic

Dear Editor,

Nazi Germany, Vietnam, Cambodia, Bosnia, Syria. All of these war-torn countries had certain commonalities: “ethnic cleansing, reeducation, or purge”” of its citizens.

Is America headed down the same fatalistic path?

Members of Congress recently made their beliefsknown,“conservatives are either racists, steeped in religious beliefs, ignorant, or as my mother used to say, just plain dumb”. Writing in a document to the head of their party they propose to, “educate the American

public, particularly ‘the religious right’, and to purge social conservatives from all levels of government. Going even so far as to suggest punishment under a new administration.

Former Government Officials just came out saying conservatives “must be ‘forced’ to redeem themselves before acceptance”.

Major Media outlets have gone so far as to publish; “Cleansing conservatives is going to be something else, …should be imprisoned, … We have a list, …how do you deprogram 75 million people?, …firing squads, reeducation camps”. Having spoken with folks who have experienced “reeducation” in post war Vietnam, the similarities of what is now being proposed by those on the Left is frightening.

This is not the America I grew up in, fought and bled for in a foreign country,

nor want my grandchildren to experience growing up.

If anyone believes they should act on these crazy, delusional, extremist ideas and come for me and mine, just one piece of advice – ensure your will is up to date before leaving your home.

If there is any doubt where this conservative stands - GOD Bless.
