Vile, de­spi­ca­ble things

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - VOICES -

Never in my nearly seven decades did I imag­ine I would be face to face with so many peo­ple es­pous­ing and en­act­ing such vile, de­spi­ca­ble, evil things as I now en­counter on a daily ba­sis—par­tic­u­larly those en­trusted with up­hold­ing the Con­sti­tu­tion and serv­ing the Amer­i­can peo­ple.

Upon hear­ing re­peated warn­ings grow­ing up that we must never for­get what the Nazis did, I naïvely thought that such hor­rors could never hap­pen again, es­pe­cially here in the USA. I was wrong.

I am sad­dened and fright­ened to wit­ness the ap­par­ent de­struc­tion of all that is good in Amer­ica by a mad pres­i­dent and his power-hun­gry Repub­li­can cronies who do not cher­ish the most ba­sic hu­man val­ues—of life, lib­erty, and the pur­suit of hap­pi­ness—and who have no com­punc­tion tram­pling on the rights and wel­fare of those who are less ad­van­taged, not to men­tion aban­don­ing their sa­cred re­spon­si­bil­ity to care for our planet.
