No semi-fascist here

No semi-fascist here

To the Editor:

I am not a semi-fascist. A ‘deplorable’, maybe. I am not a MAGA terrorist. 

Since Joe and Hillary have nothing positive to proclaim, they resort to name calling and other divisive tactics. Gas is higher, groceries are higher, the border is in crisis, drug deaths are higher, crime rate is higher and Biden has no plans to get things back under control. 

I want to get candidates elected who support MAGA policies so that we can “Make America Great Again!”

  • Quartermaster sounds like one of King Trump's loyal snowflakes. Keep crying.

  • A majority of the comments boil down to "Biden is my savior who was really, really, really elected." A stolen election will not become unstolen just because you repeat some magic incantation. Biden is illegit and a mental wreck besides.

  • We are supposed to believe than biden got 16 million more votes than obama did when he ran.
    We are supposed to believe mail in ballots were filled out by legitimate voters bypassing voter ID and common sense.
    We are supposed to believe that we had record turnout for a man seen groping kids and someone who could not even fill a school's small gymnasium.
    We are supposed to believe that it was safe enough to go to Walmart, malls and other stores and places but a more controlled environment like polling stations where safeguards could be more easily controlled was just too dangerous.
    We are supposed to believe ballots coming from New York to PA (truck drivers testified) was not an issue after the election.
    We are supposed to believe the scam investigations headed by people like Liz Cheney that affected those court cases was completely legit.­
    This is not whining but just cold hard facts.

  • All of the things you mention as problems are true. Blaming "Joe and Hillary" is just not. Hillary Clinton has been out of politics for six years. What does she have to do with current events? Biden has passed several landmark bills to address the issues in our country and he could do more if he could get anything passed in the House, where Republicans vote "no" on everything just to obstruct the other party.

    Personally, I find the biggest problem in our country to be those who are trying to overthrow elections, stage an insurrection and take away human rights from half the population. If we want to "make America great again", we should stop electing politicians who care more about maintaining their own power than upholding our constitution.

  • Further support for the leader of MAGA being styled: King Trump, Lord of the Snowflakes.
