Reader takes issue with fringe-group behavior ascribed to Republican Party

I found it deeply disturbing and sickening to read the articles and witness the KKK images that Pamphlin Media Group allowed to be published, pointed at former President Trump, Sam Baldock, and other Americans, more specifically Republicans — all with inflammatory insinuations that they are racists and bigots.

While I don't condone some of the behaviors of some of these leaders, I certainly don't think they should be defined by the behaviors of the fringe groups that associate themselves to them, which both major political parties deal with.

Now we have the major and minor media groups like Pamphlin Media trying to sway popular opinion in allowing and supporting anything and everything to villainize some individuals in hopes that their constituents will support the Democratic leadership, that by the way, is recklessly leading us into Socialism.

If that weren't enough, they are buying the votes with programs and money that they randomly print and give away as our economy, safety and security steadily erode and hyperinflation infects our families and future. More specifically targeted is the younger generation that hasn't yet experienced or suffered through multiple recessions and their realities.

Images and insinuations of the Nazi party and their relationship to socialism could easily be associated with their agenda and specific leaders, however, we're witnessing a tilted media that controls the game and what's fair for the goose definitely isn't for the gander.

Fringe groups exist everywhere, but to define someone or the much larger picture by the smaller image is discriminatory and judgmental. One must wonder why the Democrats sat on their thumbs and cheered on Antifa and others as they destroyed much of America prior to and during Trump's administration. Where is their accountability?

The author of that article obviously leans toward a sterile environment according to his own liking, one in which he can feed off and judge the past by lime lighting in the current climate.
