Don Witmer (2/6, Letters) takes Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Fox News to task because they “promote hatred toward the Democrats.” This form of political polemic — to characterize opposing points of view as “hatred” — is without a doubt the left’s phoniest.
Limbaugh, Hannity and Fox represent voices crying out against a disgraceful piece of legislation that will damage our nation. Using the current crisis as an excuse, President Obama has allowed the House, led by ultra-liberals Nancy Pelosi and Barney Frank, to drag off the shelf every pork-laden boondoggle program and to craft legislation that guarantees growth, not of the economy but of government. It strives to create a nanny state catering to organized labor, environmental extremists, trial lawyers and all of the loony left, including even that paragon of probity ACORN.
If not curbed, we can look forward to further economic decline and deflation, followed by hyper-inflation, possibly leading to Weimar Republic-like destruction of our way of life.
Rush, Sean and Fox are only sounding the alarm.
