Letters, Jan. 26

Heal the nation

The Democrats have carried on a vendetta against President Trump for four years for daring to win the last election against their candidate. They have worked tirelessly persecuting him, while neglecting the job for which they were elected.

Their vindictiveness has not ended with this election. They are planning retaliations against all Republicans.

We are coming after you” is a quote from Democratic lawmakers. Most of them profess to be “Christians” or at least to believe in God, but they seem to have forgotten the “Golden Rule”: “do unto others as you would have them do unto you” or even “live and let live.” They ignore what Jesus said: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

They appear to be mentally unable to do this, but this is the only way to heal the division in this country that they and the so-called “liberal” media have created.

It’s really MAWA

MAGA was/is a code word for MAWA. Let’s tell the truth here in Oregon.

MAGA was/is not about greatness at all. It’s shorthand code for MAWA (pronounced MahWah), always has been, since before the D’s election. Remember his vicious insults to the Muslim parents of the soldier who died fighting for the USA after their remarks at the 2015 DNC convention? That was the No. 1 volley to rally the D’s core supporters, and actually all who voted for him.

It is really all about MAWA — Make America White Again.

Many “normal” people will not admit supporting that phrase, but that’s just self-serving denial for their personal betrayal of democracy’s struggle toward its better version; choosing instead their party-based personality cult, coup-planning, wanna be dictator. MAWA’s existence has percolated in my mind for four years, but it was Amanda Gorman’s remarkable inauguration poem that finally brought it into “of course” focus.

God (of whatever name) bless America in its struggle toward decency and democracy.

No “patriot” claim here. As Samuel Johnson said: “Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel.” As Jan. 6, 2021 proved once again. D’s mall/maul speech that day is a perfect example.
