Local patriots stand up against Tucker’s nonsense

Published 1:01 am Sunday, September 4, 2011

The Aug. 28 letter to the editor had me cheering with pride and joy. It all started with the heading, “Tucker’s venom not needed in local newspaper.” You don’t have to read many of Ms. Tucker’s columns before realizing it was very typical of all her writings. To her, any item worthy of note in the civilized world, is to always be viewed through a racial prism. That’s her “shtick.”

Unfortunately, the fact she is syndicated tells me a fairly large portion of the audience agrees with her “liberal” views (they prefer being called “progressives” though I don’t know why).

Absolutely stunning and worthy of being read by every American was the wonderful, well-thought and perfectly factual responses, by Mr.’s Allred, Perkins, Peters, Hall, Ruhl and Barber, as they answered the many liberal and left-leaning letters that followed Tucker’s column last week. Knowing we still have a body of straight-thinking patriots with the guts to stand and be counted was immensely satisfying. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

For all those who follow Tucker’s philosophy, let me quote an often-quoted statement from a very popular Democratic president of the 1960s, John F. Kennedy: “Ask not what your country can do for you, but rather what you can do for your country.”

Well imagine that, he must have been a Tea Party member. We must now either get back to that philosophy, or we face the destruction of our precious Constitution, which has already been seriously bent by those among us who seek only their own gain.
