Letters spewed right-wing disinformation

Is it in the interest of our community to print letters from readers who are only regurgitating the misinformed pablum and propaganda they lap up from Fox and other right-wing media and organizations?

Regarding John Chilson’s histrionic letter of Aug. 5, the Democratic Party is an actual political party, one with many diverse constituents, core principles and various policy positions. I don’t agree with all of them (and in fact I am registered independent), but it is nonetheless a real party trying to govern. You can read its platform online and actually see the reality of what it stands for. Chilson’s letter is just more fact-free fear-mongering from a scared and angry Republican. (Mr. Chilson, where’s the GOP’s platform? Oh — that’s right, it doesn’t even bother anymore, now that it’s made the complete transition to an anti-reality, anti-democracy cult dedicated to an incompetent conman, coward, would-be autocrat and narcissistic sore loser.)

Regarding Larry Roche’s letter of Aug. 4, with its wholly unoriginal, inaccurate yet oft-repeated NRA-inspired gun screed, the Founding Fathers were concerned neither about home safety, nor about tyrannical, oppressive governments. They were mollifying Southern states that wanted to make sure they had full control over their militias in case of slave uprisings. Madison wrote the language specifically to try to neutralize pushback from slaveholding states who had seen Haiti’s uprising and wanted to prevent their slaves from fighting back against their bondage.

Facts, history, reality — all of these things are accessible to pretty much everyone. If you’re familiar with “The Matrix” movies, you understand the metaphor of the “blue pill” and the “red pill.” The GOP is now controlled by folks who chose the blue pill – and now live full-time in an anti-democracy, anti-reality cult of ignorance, conspiracy theories, hysteria and hatefulness.
