No one is fooled by such a let­ter

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Opinion -

The right-wing ab­surd mes­sage from lo­cal GOP hate-mon­ger in The Bee July 1 is bla­tantly ap­par­ent. No one is fooled. He is par­rot­ing the “cru­eltyat-all-cost” pol­icy of Don­ald Trump. His mes­sage is de­signed to foster the fear of “they are com­ing for you” mantra, mean­ing com­ing for the Chris­tian right — i.e. whites only — in 2020.

It is also clear that he has never met any Demo­cratic white women like me. I am a cradle Chris­tian and happen to be­lieve that when Je­sus Christ said “suffer lit­tle chil­dren to come unto me, and for­bid them not,” he did not mean put them in over­crowded cages sep­a­rated from their moth­ers in squalor and filth.

I am not alone in my dis­gust. Demo­cratic women are not buy­ing this, and I as­sert that there are Repub­li­can women out there who also re­ject his bru­tal­ity.
