To the Editor:
Joe and Joan Q. Public are stunned, as if hammered for slaughter like cattle, with the metamorphosis of the Democrat party. The hard left progressives, and those who identify with them, have infiltrated and seemingly captured it so that it is no longer the party of the loyal opposition and that of the working man/woman.
Rather, the left is geared to obstruction and chaos in every form, a clear danger to people and the country. The most vulgar, vile, offensive pejorative of a woman has been directed at the President's daughter. And that is but one of the seemingly innumerable despicable comments and actions of entertainers, media people, and groups. One obstruction group has published the identification of 1,600 ICE agents. Another group wants ICE agents killed. Maxine Waters, herself a member of Congress, urges active resistance to government agents. Hatred of Trump has transformed to downright evil.
Rank and file Democrats themselves must be utterly bewildered and offended by those who wish to put a new face on their party. Why are their leaders mute on what is transpiring? Not a word of rebuke or condemnation from our governor, representatives Cicilline and Langevin or senators Whitehouse and Reed, not to mention the silence from the national leaders. Their silence is revealing. Is party loyalty and winning so paramount that they sacrifice their integrity? (Billy Graham is but one who warns us to choose good; people of every stripe should heed his admonition, especially in the heated environment of politics.)
No one wants to be affiliated with a political organization that is being so degradingly transformed? No one, Democrat or otherwise can take pleasure in this abysmal new Democrat party and it would be wise for leadership to end this tailspin.
