I see no common core of beliefs shared by liberals & Muslims

To The Daily Sun,

Here on Thursday, April 7, I read a letter to the editor from Scott Cracraft and have to say I was shocked by his accusations against Russ Wiles.

First off, I have been reading Russ's letters to the editor here in Tthe Daily Sun for the past six years and never once has Russ advocated that anyone's right to free speech be obstructed, let alone prevented. In fact at least twice Russ has in his past few letters thanked and complemented the staff of The Daily Sun for their policy of printing letters from everyone regardless of political points of view.

Scott's letter was in reply to one Russ wrote challenging Scott's earlier description that Trump supporters, the Tea Party supporters, and, well anyone who disagrees with the left was akin to fascists.

Let's be clear on this, no one has yet reported, in or out of the media, that any Trump supporters, Tea Party supporters or anyone from the right has gone to a Clinton or Sanders or any other Democratic event and tried to shout down, disrupt, threaten, charge the stage, take over the mic or shut down the event. Unless Scott can provide some evidence of us doing any such things, his accusations against Russ Wiles can be nothing but cheep smear tactics.

Scott, being a history teacher, knows full well that this was the tactics of the fascists in Italy and Germany in the 1930s. It is and has been the tactics of left-wing groups like Black Lives Matter, moveon.org gangs and all the other George Soros funded left-wing thug gangs for years now.

Let's ask Scott how many left-wing speakers at collages and universities have been shouted down, disrupted, or barred from speaking at these venues by mobs of conservatives because the main stream media hasn't reported any. On the other hand, over the past decade alone hundreds of conservatives have been threatened, bullied and turned away by all those enlighten progressive fascists being motivated by leftists professors who reinvent facts and history to suite their Marxist socialist agenda.

Scott states he does not try to influence his students and up to recently I took him at his word for that, but in the past few months his letters have taken on a very sharp, and I must say, a rather questionable edge as to his credibility. He often has been critical of the Tea Party in particular, and writes as though he is an authority, though he has never attended a rally or meeting. A year ago he and I agreed to attend one, but Scott never showed up, never went to one and has no idea, other then what he is told to believe by political hacks higher up the left's food chain. So much for critical thinking, in depth research and fact-finding.

On a different but related subject, I would like to ask any one of any ilk to answer this question: What in the world do liberals have in common with Islam? As far as I can see Islam is diametrically opposite to everything liberals say they believe in and stand for. There is absolutely no common ground, no common values or beliefs. But the left defends them and villainize Christians as though they are the ones killing, terrorizing, raping, and enslaving innocent people all over the world. Not even the left-wing media makes those claims. So what's up with that? Isn't it about time they get off the Kool-Aid?

God bless Lakes Region for 25 years of support for de Paul Society

To The Daily Sun,

A celebration is in order! The St. Vincent de Paul Society in Laconia turns 25 years old this year! 25 years of providing assistance to those in need in the southern Lakes Region...serving the elderly, children, and needy families. This assistance has included food, clothing, financial help, children's needs, and disaster relief.

We've done this for 25 years with only volunteer effort in our food pantry, our thrift store, our financial assistance program, and the Children's Foundation. We've never paid a dime of salaries or wages for the dedicated staff and management of our organization. Currently we have about 120 of such volunteers who give anywhere from an hour of two up to as much as 30 hours a week. Further, most of the funds involved stays here in the Lakes Region; we pay only a small membership fee to the National Organization.

Of course, we couldn't have done any of this without the wonderful support you, the Lakes Region community, have provided us. If you haven't volunteered with us, what are you waiting for? We are always in need of new volunteers...cashiers, clothing sorters and furniture pickup people for the Thrift Store, food distributors for the Pantry, interviewers for our Financial Assistance program, volunteers to help children for the Children's Foundation.

Finally, for those of you who have donated food, clothing, furniture, and cash contributions, please keep up the good work. If you haven't yet, now is a great time to start, say by spring cleaning your closets, in honor of our 25th birthday! God bless all in the Lakes Region for 25 years of support and encouragement. Many thanks.

Erika Johnson, President
St. Vincent de Paul Society
