Who are these mean liberals?

Ben DaytonBreckenridge

In response to Dell Sharp’s June 15 letter: The letter asserts that “liberals couldn’t even postpone their mean and hateful lies until after Reagan was buried.”Who are these so called liberals? Not me, I’m a liberal and I don’t lie and I’m not hateful.If the letter is referring to the media, then she is misinformed because the fact is, the media is not strictly made up of liberals.Time Warner, one of the largest conservative media companies in the World, owns CNN. Other conservative media groups include ABC, and News Corp., which owns FOX.There is a wide range of political views in the media, but if anything, it is dominated by conservatives.Please don’t let conservative prejudices distort reality. Dell Sharp generalizes, suggesting that all liberals are mean, hateful liars, yet the statements are not backed up with any factual information. It is a sad thing that too many people let their emotions get in the way of politics. The letter implies that the large turnout at former President Reagan’s funeral is proof of the “failed policies of liberalism.”This is not proof of anything, except that there are a lot of people that liked Reagan. There are also a lot of people that did not like Reagan.But that’s the way it is always going to be. We could debate whether or not Reagan was the “greatest president of the last century,” as the Sharp letter put it, until the end of time, but the fact is there will always be two sides to any political issue. There will also always be people that will disagree with you. And that’s OK. Please, stop and ask yourself … what are your prejudice views and emotional reactions doing to create any good in the world? Ben DaytonBreckenridge
