As a proud Republican military spouse who is also an animal lover and advocate, I was very disappointed to read the recent piece by Richard Berman (“Dogging the Trumps,” Web, Aug. 7). Republicans and conservatives are being maligned in much of the media, and everything we do is being put under a microscope with people looking for a “gotcha” moment.

Antifa and Black Lives Matter claim they are fighting against white supremacy and fascism. But, they are fighting on the streets and on the college campuses against anyone who disagrees with their ideology of socialism and far-left beliefs. Anyone who says that he is for President Trump or free enterprise or is a Republican will be shouted down, barred form speaking on college campuses and physically attacked on the streets.

Imagine my horror and disgust at learning that the present director of the National Institutes of Health, Dr. Francis Collins, a holdover for some reason from the Obama administration, has designed and administers a diabolical scheme to incentivize the destruction of human embryos (“Seeking pro-life leadership at the National Institutes of Health,” Web, Sept. 19). The incentive is hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars. In fact, this destruction of human embryos has cost us more than $1 billion taxpayer dollars.
Long ago and far away faculties ran universities, and students, by in large, got a good education. Today universities are run by professional administrators and campus mobs. What students get can hardly be described as a good education (“Nine arrested at Ben Shapiro speech as Berkeley officials express ‘relief’ that protest wasn’t worse,” Web, Sept. 15).
