To the editor:
According to Speaker of the House Nancy Patricia Pelosi, and the sage of the House of Representatives, Alexandra Ocasio Cortez, there is a direct threat to the American government and the American way of life from Republican members of the House and their staff.
According to the Speaker and AOC, Republicans have relinquished fidelity to former President Trump and sworn loyalty to right wing white supremacist groups. Both Democratic elected officials said that on the same day on different cable news programs. Do you or anyone reading this genuinely believe any member of Congress could be a member of a right-wing white supremacist group, and opposition researchers paid big money to dig up dirt on candidates running for office and their staffs never uncovered it?
Interesting that the charge was made but no names were given nor proof offered; it goes without saying that the reporters on MSNBC and CNN never questioned the outrageous charges, both nodding their heads in agreement.
Years ago, I was on a counterterrorism working group in the Tidewater area of Virginia, stationed at Fort Eustis in the Military Police. We had representatives from the FBI, ATF and many other federal agencies; the Air Force, Navy and Coast Guard. The FBI regularly briefed us on a Ku Klux Klan group in North Carolina on the Virginia border in our area of concern. The group had nine members; two were paid informants of the FBI and one was a covert ATF agent.
Phones were tapped, meetings were recorded and surveilled, every move monitored. Today we are supposed to believe that members of Congress and staff are secretly members of white supremacist terrorist groups and a threat to our democracy. Folks, you cannot make this stuff up. Members of Congress and staff are required to maintain a Security Clearance, with the in-depth investigations that are required. Add on that the leftist/socialist media has given every person in every Republican’s office an anal exam and this is beyond asinine.
Quite frankly, I tire of people in leftist/socialist government/media telling me I am (and by the way most of you are) a terrorist. The goal is to scare anyone who voted for President Trump into abandoning principles and join in the glorious people’s revolution. Social media, most news media outlets, and even entertainment television are their weapons of choice; it is part and parcel of the “cancel culture.”
If any of you know of the plethora of white supremist groups in Dorr, Moline, Hopkins, Wayland or Martin, please let me know. We must have dozens if we believe Speaker Pelosi, AOC and the media; with all the Trump voters we have we must be a terrorist stronghold.
Strange, but I do not see it, I see good solid American folks who work hard, pay taxes, raise children, love the country and have malice toward no one. Proof positive of my ignorance, because that cannot be true — just ask the Speaker, AOC and the media.
Social media billionaires censoring speech for profit is not liberal.
