This letter,
and the commentors who agreed with it prove one thing --

AM hate radio works, [and by that, I mean NOT in a good way].

Thank you for at least articulating the source of the so-called "assaults on every side" - that's more than the original letter identified.

But then you rattle off a list of events separated across 4 decades, carried out by disparate groups or individuals with their own grievances, methods, and objectives, as if they are a cohesive, unified force. They are not. Some of them are bitterly at odds with each other.

You tell naysayers to do research. I have studied the events you list and those who have perpetrated them. I have even hunted some of them for a living. But trying to tie them all into a unified threat against the US homeland is a simpler narrative than spending the time to understand them and what they want.

"'Exactly what dragons need slaying?'"

"The menace of the middle east."

Let's not mince words. You mean Muslims. Because they're easier as a whole to blame than trying to navigate the bewildering and complex ethnic, historical, tribal, economic, political, and religious issues of the region.

Please turn off Fox news and get with the educated public that researches issues and makes educated arguments. This letter falls under the sky is falling category. I hope for the day that the DN will publish stronger and better researched letters from both sides, not just the Fox News rehash.

Checkout Glenn Becks recent apology for crazy things he said on FOX, this might lessen the trauma.

It isn't the President who should step down! It is all of the backstabbing, incompetent republicans who have done absolutely nothing but bellyache about Obama! Good grief, things are not that bad! If, indeed things are as bad as some people say, then look at those who do nothing! The republicans. I get so tired of all the idiotic stuff people make up about our government and about Obama! What does the scripture say about pulling the mote out of your own eye before you pull the mote out the eye of another. Republicans should clean their own house before they look somewhere else!

What is scary Vernon, is the attitude of the far right like you. Our President is the best I've had in my lifetime (54 years). I have been astounded at the inflexibility of the right. For the first time in a long time, you see that you might be wrong and you can't handle it. Your kind better get ready, because next, we are going to have a female leader. Do you want to feel the way you do (only worse) at the thought of having your first female president? Time to analyze your feelings and start the road to change.
