‘South­ern’ is­sues are non­sense

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - WIL­SON FARIS Gaithers­burg, Mary­land

The United States spent eight suf­fer­ing years un­der the boot of our first Marx­ist pres­i­dent. Maybe our lo­cal light­weight politi­cians wish to fo­cus on sow­ing the con­tin­u­ance in this cul­tural and racial di­vide (“Is Mary­land ready to rid ‘North­ern scum’ from state song?” Web, Feb. 16). They may well tread on dan­ger­ous ground.

Since every­one seems to be of­fended by some­thing these days, I will say I am of­fended by those who find of­fense in is­sues about which they know lit­tle.

These left­ist syco­phants scream and point to a bunch of white fas­cists fea­tured as part of an or­ches­trated event (pos­si­bly ar­ranged by sev­eral city-coun­cil mem­bers and a po­lice chief with a per­sonal agenda).

The event was ac­tively sup­ported by in­ter­na­tional race­baiter and hate-mon­ger Cor­nell Green.

Our lo­cal po­lit­i­cal hacks do not want to con­sider the rest of the story. There is no profit in know­ing be­yond con­ve­nience.

Now we have the lyrics of a song in con­tention. I won­der if any of the politi­cians wish­ing to change the lyrics ever sang the song be­fore or knew the lyrics prior to be­ing prod­ded to divine ac­tion by those with noth­ing bet­ter to do.

None of these hoax is­sues have any­thing to do with stat­ues, the South or the Civil War.

They con­sti­tute an ef­fort by those tired and in­ef­fec­tive lead­ers who wish to prove that one of my he­roes, Rev. Martin Luther King, was noth­ing more that an Un­cle Tom, and that vi­o­lence and di­vi­sion is the prof­itable way to go.
