Parties change over time
In the Nov. 1 Villager, Democrat Bill Holen’s column attempts to blame President Trump for racial hatred in our country. In attempting this he reflects on Marin Luther King’s comments about “ …racial discrimination that was embedded in much of American culture…” Perhaps a little history lesson is in order for Holen to show him how this racial hated became embedded. In Birmingham, Democrat Bull Conner ordered fire hoses and police dogs turned loose on innocent black people who were protesting in the streets. Who can forget the terrified look on the faces of the black children trying to escape this assault. In Atlanta, eventual Democrat Gov. Lester Maddox handed out ax handles to be used to beat back black people who wanted to eat in his restaurant. And who could ever forget Democrat Gov. George Wallace blocking the entrance to the University of Alabama’s admission building to stop black students from registering. These people demonstrated racial hatred, which President Trump has never done.
Next, Holen references the deadly Pittsburg Synagogue murders saying Trump is complicit” …in endorsing these violent and deadly attacks…” Holen then says Trump has a “…total lack of compassion for anyone but himself.” Newsflash: when Trump was in Pittsburg to give his condolences to the survivors and relatives, the synagogue’s Rabbi Jeffrey Myers said Trump was very warm and consoling.
Holen, the Democrat Party and their public relations department (CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, etc) are trying desperately to pin any tragedy on Trump. How sad that they are using the tragic death of 11 people to falsely attack our president.
