Letters to the Editor


To quote Hillary Clinton labeling Trump supporters, we were put in a basket of deplorables. We are by her definition: disgraceful, shameful, dishonorable, unworthy, inexcusable, unpardonable, unforgiving, reprehensible, despicable, abominable, contemptible and heinous! We are racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic and Islamophobic! (I had to look up xenophobic just to see of what else I was accused.)

Wow. But, of course, she is not prejudiced. In my opinion, I believe she is referring to Bible-believing Christians who believe that marriage is between a man and woman as well as abortion being murder. The rest of the phobias are add-ons to make us one gigantic pox of phobias in bigotry.

If she used the label “practicing Christians” she would lose too many votes, so by the label “deplorables” she flies humorously under the radar as all her supporters give her the nod and laugh with her.

You do not hear the phrase “Christian lives matter” or “Jewish lives matter” as masses around the world are being tortured and killed. That, Mrs. Clinton, is deplorable. That, Mrs. Clinton, is anti-Christ and anti-Semitic. That, Mrs. Clinton, is bigotry. That is … Mrs. Clinton.
