Letter of irony
There is a glaring irony in the title of Fasih Malik’s letter,
Denounce hate (Nov. 3). He admonishes the press for “giving hateful rhetoric publicity,” then uses this same press to do exactly that of which he disapproves.
He asserts that the Pittsburgh synagogue killer believed in and was thus encouraged by President Donald Trump. Even a token search on Google reveals that this maniac despised Trump for “helping infest the U.S. with Jews” and further, that he was “proud he did not vote for him nor had he ever touched or owned a Make America Great Again hat.”
While Malik can disagree with Trump, on either a personal or political level, this does not give him the right to impugn Trump by insinuating he is responsible in any way without any evidence for this horrific crime.
To do that is an example of the purist form of hateful rhetoric he wishes to denounce. Al Gretzky London
