My goodness. We just last month witnessed American democracy come within an inch of its life via a violent assault on our Capitol, our Congress, and on Vice President Mike Pence at the hands of domestic extremists, led in part by known white supremacists. Shockingly, it was our then-president who incited the mess in his desperate attempt to become our republic’s first-ever autocrat.
Yet last week’s letter to the editor writer (“Once upon a time,” Carol Gene Good, News + Record, Feb. 11-17) is apparently riddled with fear by widespread misinformation about BLM and our Democratic politicians! Wow. FDR’s famous quote bears repeating now, in 2021, like a mantra: “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”
Americans, can we please get a grip?!! We ALL share this country. It would behoove us to start rediscovering our common ground, ASAP.
To combat false information, we all need to get at least some of our news from reliable sources going forward. And we need to get to know our fellow countrymen and women again, the ones we now imagine we fear so darned much.
Honestly, I don’t think they bite.
