Letter: A display of liberal ignorance
Fred DiFronzo’s recent letter to the editor “What it means to vote for the Republican Party” (Monitor letter, April 18) is just another example of how Democrats think, and how extreme and far from reality progressives and liberals are.
DiFronzo suggests that Republicans are against the environment, the poor, Social Security and Medicare, all social programs and the minimum wage, and in favor of unlimited war.
Those suggestions are far from reality, but they represent the mind-set of so many Democrats, progressives and liberals.
More disturbing were some of the comments in the Forum section from readers.
Those who preach tolerance, inclusion and diversity are the same people who fail to practice those same principles. To stereotype an entire group as “bigots, racists, homophobes and misogynists” is not only ignorant, but it speaks to the character and demeanor of those who describe their fellow citizens in that vein.
To liken Republicans to Nazis is so repugnant that it reveals a political agenda aimed at ends justifying the means.
DiFronzo’s letter and the comments following it, demonstrate why there is such a divide in this country. With people who think like that, why would anyone vote for a Democrat.
