Quinn cam­paign tac­tic racist, anti-Semitic

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters -

The cam­paign tac­tics of Illi­nois Gov. Pat Quinn, a Demo­crat, is yet an­other ex­cel­lent ex­am­ple of the ut­ter hypocrisy and in­tol­er­ance of left­ists.

Mr. Quinn’s camp last week praised, tweeted and other­wise pro­moted the Chicago Sun-Times opin­ion col­umn that com­pared black Repub­li­cans who sup­port GOP gu­ber­na­to­rial can­di­date Bruce Rauner to Jews who col­lab­o­rated with the Nazis dur­ing World War II, help­ing to round up fel­low Jews.

In one sweep­ing ac­tion, the Quinn camp groups Jews and blacks who think for them­selves and don’t ad­here to the zom­bielike march of the Demo­cratic left into the cat­e­gory of traitors. Amer­i­cans of all per­sua­sions should find this kind of rhetoric highly racist, anti-Semitic and ex­tremely in­sult­ing.

What more will it take for the elec­torate to see through the specious­ness of the Demo­cratic Party? LOR­RAINE RYAN Ber­wyn Heights, Md.
