Col­umns show Freeman’s Demo­cratic lean­ings

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - OPINION -

Dear Ed­i­tor: Pe­rus­ing your Nov. 10 Opin­ion page, I con­cluded you are un­con­cerned about the feel­ings of non-Demo­cratic read­ers.

Dana Milbank char­ac­ter­izes Trump’s vot­ers, half the vot­ing pop­u­la­tion, as xeno­pho­bic, an­gry, older, white men. Ruth Mar­cus warns us Trump’s elec­tion may anger Je­ho­vah. Her con­cern for sup­posed as­saults on free in­sti­tu­tions over­looks uni­ver­si­ties’ ex­pul­sion of Repub­li­cans and po­lit­i­cal lop­sid­ed­ness due to trans­form­ing uni­ver­si­ties into cen­ters of Demo­cratic pro­pa­ganda.

Forty-two per­cent of women voted for Trump while 53 per­cent of men did; 37 per­cent of young vot­ers fa­vored Trump while 45 per­cent of vot­ers over 65 op­posed Trump, ac­cord­ing to the Pew Re­search Cen­ter.

The left’s com­mit­ment to the pol­i­tics of vic­tim­iza­tion over­looks that the Democrats’ in­tol­er­ant, prej­u­diced poli­cies have vic­tim­ized large groups of peo­ple, many of whom sup­ported Trump. Mitchell Lang­bert, Ph.D.
