Reader objects to choice of cartoon
I am writing to you to take exception to the cartoon you chose to post in the West Side Journal on June 28, 2018, on page 6A. What made you believe your readership would find this example of repugnancy acceptable? I was offended by its bias and lack of civility. To make light of a United States citizen, who is serving her country, after she was asked to leave a restaurant while dining with her family is not only insensitive, un-American, but quoting Hillary Clinton, “deplorable”. After watching the news and seeing the actions of the those yelling and name-calling in the faces of private citizens, who happen to work in the Trump administration, or observing the riots and destruction of property after the election, reminds me of Kristallnacht in Nazi Germany in November of 1938. In fact, any behavior of this type, LEFT or RIGHT reminds me of that era. The silent majority, of which I am one, does not need to resort to rioting, harassing, name-calling or discriminating against anyone. Our strongest weapons are civility, debate and most importantly our vote. This inappropriate cartoon contributes to perpetuate this extreme radical behavior. A local newspaper should aspire to a higher calling.
