Debunker receives a response

To The Editor:

This is written in response to a recent “Letter to the Editor” by Mr. Larry Bunch, which he wrote in response to an earlier one written by me.

I would like to thank Mr. Bunch for his response. It was both thoughtful and well-written.

There are several points that I just can’t go along with. How can Donald Trump fix this country’s problems when he can’t even deal with his own party? It was just several days ago that he had to make a deal with the Democratic leaders of the House of Representatives and Senate just to keep the government open and provide hurricane relief.

People need to keep in mind that Trump was a registered Democrat for most of his adult life. He gave money to Democratic candidates and causes. If Republicans think that Trump won’t stab them in the back when it suits him, then they need to check out his history.

Now, when you talk about Democrats blocking minority rights, I can only assume you’re talking about Democrats such as George Wallace or Lester Maddux.

Mr. Bunch, I don’t have to look at the pictures in old newspapers. I was there in the ’60s. I was there during the Civil Rights protests and the anti-war protests.

The problem at that time was an American problem, not just Democrats and Republicans. These conditions were the same all over the country. It had nothing to do with political parties.

The changes that came about were under Kennedy and LBJ, and the Democrats in Congress, not the Republicans.

Mr. Bunch, you have not really debunked anything that I said. The Republican Party, as it is now, is just a reboot off those old “Southern Democrats.” Now, they just have different people to blame for what’s going on in America: the liberal media, Hispanics and Muslims ... [or] really, anyone who is different.

There’s also a term they use in psychology – “State of Denial.” Maybe you should leave that state, take a walk on the left side of the street and get some new ideas.
