I just feel the need to crosspost this Letter to the Editor from today’s Patriot-News. Please feel free to defend Lorette on the online version of the article, where she is already being called a hater herself by people who “have gay friends.”
Union workers — because everyone should enjoy working for $3 an hour.
Illegal aliens — because it’s easier to hate them than the people who have hired them for decades.
Unemployed — because even though they paid unemployment insurance they shouldn’t expect to collect on it.
Welfare folks — we’ve been told to hate them for so many years it’s now part of our DNA.
Non-Christians — because religious freedom went out of style with the Mayflower.
Environmentalists — because their selfish dream of clean air and water has destroyed our economy.
Liberals — because you can never trust anyone who is not driven by pure greed.
Trial lawyers —- akin to a weasel except for corporate trial lawyers.
Minorities — but only until we ourselves become a minority.
Gays — because God has zero tolerance for fornication among those who are not church leaders.
If you listen to politicians and the corporate interests that run our media, you’ll find these groups are targeted over and over. It’s been a distraction as the middle class slowly vanishes.
LORETTA LEHMAN, Wheatfield Twp.
I think she left out judges, whose personal lives and professional standards are scrutinized just for fulfilling their Constitutional obligations.
Rock on, Loretta.
