During the Vietnam War I was a Marine squad leader in mortars, and I ended up on a 100% disability fighting against Communist Russians and Chinese who backed North Vietnam. As if that weren’t bad enough, we had race riots back in the U.S., where Black Americans were rightly fighting for their autonomy — while brainwashed hippies abused our servicemen and -women, not acknowledging the sacrifices made for their right to protest.

These people bring me to the despicable bunch of educators and reprobates who now want to shove Critical Race Theory, cancel culture and Wokeism down our throats.

These malcontents attack the gullible and infirm with their toxic ideology, thriving on misery and dissension like those we fought against in war. We don’t have to hate ourselves for being born, no do we have to denounce our history; that’s just misery wanting company.



Recently my Cuban friend of 20 years called me about the Cuban riots, telling me that the people are screaming in the street wanting democracy and hating communism as they wave the American flag. These people have been subservient to an ideology that crushes their spirit.

The toxic theories the left are trying to push are like a cancer that needs to be destroyed.

We have already suffered the pains of prejudice, class warfare and self-hatred. Illogical theories have no place in our country.
