Is this still Amer­ica?

Times Chronicle & Public Spirit - - NEWS -

To the Ed­i­tor:

In the last few months, we have wit­nessed sev­eral in­stances of the cor­rup­tion of our so­ci­ety and its in­sti­tu­tions. We are in an epic bat­tle for the sur­vival of our beloved repub­lic, right vs. left, good vs. evil.

Dur­ing Judge Ka­vanaugh’s hear­ings, our “es­teemed” se­na­tors showed their well-planned and or­ches­trated the­atrics by in­ter­rupt­ing, shout­ing and be­ing to­tally dis­rup­tive/dis­re­spect­ful. The scream­ing pro­tes­tors were fi­nally re­moved, but the se­na­tors con­tin­ued to per­form in uni­son.

At Pres­i­dent Trump’s re­cent press con­fer­ence, over 80 so-called jour­nal­ists gath­ered to dis­play their to­tal lack of deco­rum. They mim­icked the same con­duct dis­played at the Ka­vanaugh hear­ings. The press seemed to rel­ish in their newly ac­cepted, crude be­hav­ior.

The thou­sands of peo­ple presently ap­proach­ing our bor­der have no re­spect for the rights of the Amer­i­can peo­ple; they want what they want, and they ex­pect to get it. If our own gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials and our own press have no re­spect for how they be­have and how they are per­ceived, can we ex­pect any more from those in­tent upon in­vad­ing our coun­try?

The left has en­cour­aged their con­stituents to sur­round and ha­rass their per­ceived en­e­mies, to kick them when they are down. Their fol­low­ers have du­ti­fully taken up the gaunt­let. The lat­est in­ci­dent in­volved a masked An­tifa group ar­riv­ing out­side of Fox News’ Tucker Carl­son’s home, shout­ing, de­fac­ing his prop­erty and try­ing to in­tim­i­date and pro­mote fear among those present in his home. Carl­son’s home ad­dress and those of his rel­a­tives and friends were posted on Twit­ter.

Is this still Amer­ica? Do we now need per­sonal se­cu­rity con­trac­tors to guard our homes? What hap­pened to law en­force­ment, ar­rest and pros­e­cu­tion?

Pres­i­dent Trump is vow­ing to pro­tect our bor­ders with our mil­i­tary. Who is pro­tect­ing our neigh­bor­hoods, coun­ties and cities when our po­lice are told to “stand down”? — Mar­garet W. Adels­berger, Wil­low Grove
