The professor is showing utter contempt for fellow human beings

To The Daily Sun,

Professor Cracraft waxes "wackadoodle" and has apparently decided to use the "Ververka method" of wacked-out humor, condescension and belittling as a way to get letter writers who disagree with him to shut up an sit down, lest they acquire his toilet seat award. This in his most recent smear letter.

Now, he may tell us he was just kidding around and having a little fun. That he did not intentionally mean to demean other letter writers as ethnocentric, bordering on being racist, on being radical nationalists and having utter contempt for their fellow human beings. But it's hard to take "the mean" out of the "left".

We all owe the kindly professor a deep debt of gratitude. His recent letter was a perfect example of how the progressive left attacks those who don't agree with their terribly flawed philosophy. They must resort to name calling when they have nothing of substance to offer.

Scott educates we poor uneducated neanderthal types about our open border to the north. After all, he asserts that the recipients of his esteemed "wackadoo awards" will probably have to look up words like ethnocentric, jingosim, racist and perhaps even radical nationalism. Actually, I would like to know the meaning of radical nationalism, especially since I am limited by having only a Bachelor's degree. Seriously Scott, it is not the "right" that wants to overthrow our republic. That belongs to the fundamentally transforming "left", does it not?

The learned professor informs us that, "a lot of white European immigrants come here and work as nannies for wealthy families in New England and work illegally", by way of comparing the Mrs. Doubtfires from Canada to the unskilled illegals who stream across our borders to the south.

In 2013, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released 36,000 violent, criminal, illegal aliens onto American streets. Those would be the ones who have committed homicide, sexual assaults, kidnapping, drug dealing and drunk driving mayhem on our highways. Last year, ICE released 30,558 criminal aliens into our society to terrorize citizens, legal immigrants and the numerous peaceful illegal immigrants. Check out ICE director Sarah Saldana's video on Katie Pavlich's Townhall.com column back on 4/10/14, where she twists herself into semantic knots trying to justify the release of these really bad people.

Professor Cracraft, a question if you please. Just how many European nannies are killing U.S. citizens, raping and kidnapping our children and running over folks while drunk or high on drugs? Only an allegedly progressive, "leftist" professor could pen such an inane and patronizing letter while pretending he is the much more intelligent and educated than they great unwashed who frequent the "liberal right". Yes, I said, liberal right because there is nothing liberal about what the "left" is doing to obliterate our borders, language and culture. And Scott apparently is not moved by the death and destruction caused by our illegal alien onslaught. No, the left continues to hate those who fight evil. It really is quite bizarre and inexplicable.

It is actually Professor Cracraft who is showing "utter contempt for fellow human beings." He thinks he is clever by throwing the race card around like a drunken alien gambler in "casually mentioning" that Linda Riley would not recognize the WASPS because they would be the "same color as she". The man who detests racism finishes by saying, "I am going to assume your favorite colors are lily white." Wow, that does sting a little doesn't it?

Oh Scott, you rapscallion, did you intentionally present us with a letter which drips with racial overtones, just to show us how not to act in such a bigoted manner? Or are you as petulant, cocky and arrogant as most of your fellow "leftists" who just know they are seated majestically atop the high moral ground?

Anyway, perhaps you can enlist the services of James Veverka and Henry Osmer to join you on your "wackadoo selection committee". Heck, I'm even willing to loan you the services of the "right wing clown car", for a nominal fee of course. And feel free to plug in the many CDs available. From John Locke, Edmund Burke, Alexis de Tocqueville, Lord Acton to Milton Friedman, William F. Buckley Jr., Whitaker Chambers and James Madison. There is much to pique ones critical thinking skills. You might also enjoy Lee Greenwood's, "God Bless the USA" and Martina McBride's, "Let Freedom Ring" as well.

Let's not publicly fund these despicable & barbarous practices

To The Daily Sun,

Nick Vazzana is a partisan liberal/progressive whose one sided letters I typically read with a grain of salt. However, his "defense" of Planned Parenthood in the face of extremely disturbing videos of Planned Parenthood doctors callously describing the harvesting of fetal tissue from late term abortions is beyond the pale.

Have you no shame, Mr. Vazzana? Are abortions on demand in all circumstances the only possible position that you can accept? I submit that the callous disdain for human DNA tissue regardless of whether it is susceptible to life outside the womb is disgusting and revolting, and cannot be masked by the common cliché of a woman's right to choose.

The country is split fairly evenly over abortion rights. The U.S. Supreme Court has permitted abortion in early stages of pregnancy for over 40 years. However, the technology of today, with ultrasounds and heartbeats, should give a person some hesitancy to terminate a pregnancy, even should a woman choose to do so with her conscience and her doctor. But when the pregnancy advances to the late stages and the fetus is crushed in certain ways to harvest body parts, I submit that many people of good faith draw the line.

It is entirely reasonable to request that taxpayer dollars not be spent on Planned Parenthood because of the processes that have been exposed. Public funding for women's reproductive rights can be made to other organizations who do not engage in such controversial, and I would say despicable and barbarous practices.
