The Republican Party is failing to articulate key facts, primarily financial, affecting proposed and operative major legislation. This is akin to a bank failing to inform a customer that a credit card has been maxed out.
“Wellesley students advocate hostility on campuses to silence conservative ‘hate speech’” (Web, April 20) exposes the eerily Orwellian nature of the events unfolding in our institutions of “higher learning.” At Wellesley College, the case is being made for using force and violence to stifle the free speech of those who “refuse to adapt their beliefs.” In February, students rioted and set fires at the University of California, Berkeley, to prevent an appearance by conservative personality Milo Yiannopoulos.
It is only fitting that the long career which made Fox News Channel’s Bill O’Reilly a fabulously rich man and enabled the network to rake in hundreds of millions of dollars in advertising revenue should end in disgrace (“Bill O’Reilly out at Fox News after 18 years hosting No. 1 prime-time program,” Web, April 18).
The crowded field in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District election (11 Republicans vs. one Democrat) poses the question of whether Georgians are aware of the perils of splitting the vote within their own party.
