Civil discourse?

To The Eagle:

Two authors of last week’s opinion letters “ Democrats and working people” and “Subjected to the big lie ” sounded like rude ten-year-olds flipping us the bird while talking trash about anyone at odds with them. Whatever happened to civil discourse? Why, Mr. Editor, do you print such rubbish instead of the informative, interesting stuff I’m sure is being sent in?

Could Mr. Trump and his enablers actually have thought they wouldn’t suffer profound consequences after their attempt to sabotage a presidential election and then assault the seat of government to prevent the peaceful transfer of power?

Trump isn’t being isolated and publicly scorned because of his culture and religion, as were the Jews of Germany. He’s being shunned by decent people because he proved to be a liar, thief, cheater, bully, hater, bigot, and an altogether dishonorable man who misused his position of power to inflict his terrible behaviors upon the citizens of this country.

As far as I’m concerned, when one looks in the dictionary for the definition of fascism, it should include a photo of Trump.

If you insist upon justifying your support of that man’s hideous behavior, could you please at least try to sound like adults while you act like children. Telling someone to take a long walk off a short pier or calling them stupid because they disagree with you, deserves no place in our discussions on this page.
