She warns Richland County in a letter published in the Wahpeton Daily News that the nation is about to elect a member of 'the muslim community' to be POTUS. Vile.
[ Who are we really electing?
My husband and I grew up during World War II. We still "remember Pearl Harbor" and the dastardly deed committed on us by the Japanese government on 12-7-1941.
Sixty seven years later, we also vividly remember the 9-11-2001 massacre of the Twin Towers, which was perpetrated on us by the Muslim community as an act of war.But after Pearl Harbor, at the next election, we did not nominate for the President of the United States, a Japanese American or a "Jap" as they were then called.
But now a man has been nominated of admittedly Muslim decent, parading as an apparent Christian, in the middle of a war with Muslim Iraq.
Could anything be more strange? Wake Up, America!
We are in grave danger of being destroyed and overtaken in the process of calling for "change".
There will be change, alright.
The Presidential race is not about white verses black, but about ideologies as different as night and day.
ALICE GUNNESS, Abercrombie, N.D. ]
This set me off, to scold the editor, who published this piece of horseshit without a correction. The fact is that Obama has never been, is not now, and presumably, never will be, a Muslim.
The editor responded with:
[ Thanks for your comments. Know that letters to the editor are strictly opinion and usually not edited for content, besides spelling errors, etc. If you wish, you are welcome to submit your own letter to the editor in response to Alice's.
Kristin Anderson, Daily News ]
Except that Anderson didn't write it. It was sent over the sig line and info of the managing editor:
So I will send a response letter to Gunnesss. She was a disgrace to have allowed that to run without a correction. This letter must be composed perfectly.
It will begin with a sad acknowledgment that here we see yet another American falling for the lies spread by the "Attack That Came Out of the Ether" (Scholar Looks for First Link in E-Mail Chain About Obama) and that she can learn all about it by reading this article. If she doesn't have a computer of her own, she can go to her public library and the librarian will help her find the Washington Post. Gunness can read it online or have it printed out for her to read She's not too old and frail to do this if she's got the energy to spread such vile, lying poison. If she really is alarmed about the state of the world, she should perhaps inform her fellow-citizens about how Cheney, via Bush, transfered a trillion and a half dollars of this nation's wealth to the coffers of Dubai, who are the bankers of the Sauds. This is treason.
