His­tory re­minds us of what to fear

The Daily Herald - - OPINION -

A long time ago, when I was a kid, we lis­tened to the ra­dio. At that time there was a mad man who ranted to crowds about the Jews, others and gov­ern­ment and spewed fear and racism. Fi­nally he met his end with the loss of mil­lions of peo­ple. Hitler used brown shirt bul­lies to slay his crit­ics.

For­tu­nately, we had a pres­i­dent who said the only thing we have to fear is fear it­self.

To­day we have TV and free press. I watch and lis­ten to CNN, C-Span, MSNBC, Fox and read two news­pa­pers for knowl­edge.

I see the cur­rent GOP bully Don­ald and hear his mouth is­sue at­tacks on the press, mi­nori­ties and Amer­ica with con­tempt and mis­in­for­ma­tion.

We the vot­ers of this state are too smart and ed­u­cated to buy into this brand of con­fu­sion.

You can fool part of the peo­ple, but not all of us.

I hope when Mr. Trump has been de­feated he can move back into his tower of Ba­bel “con­fu­sion” and look at the re­al­ity of him­self. “I know

more than the gen­er­als.”

Our pres­i­dent and Hillary did not cre­ate ISIS.

We are a great na­tion al­ready and I will vote again and I know there will be no rigged elec­tion.

In con­clu­sion, “Con­tempt prior to in­ves­ti­ga­tion is a form of ig­no­rance.”

Born in 1936, I am still aware and have a good mind.
