An Open Letter to the President About Hatred


February 12, 2017

Dear Mr. President:

How disheartened I am that you use racial epithets against Sen. Warren. My dismay does not arise because she, in particular, is the target. It arises because you would use racial epithets against anyone, regardless of whether they are a political enemy. But that she disagrees with your policies and is willing to speak out to express her disagreement, as a senator is bound to do by her oath of office to uphold the Constitution, makes it doubling troubling that you use racial slurs in a juvenile attempt to demean her. Your behavior is disgusting.

We know that you hate women, minorities, Jews (please don’t tell me your daughter is a Jew, because it doesn’t make any difference), Muslims, Mexicans, immigrants, the children of immigrants, and Native Americans as well. You hate and hate and hate and, sadly, you drive others just like you to open up about their own hatred. You remind us of your hatred every day. You hate the environment. You hate civil rights. You hate public education. You hate the First Amendment. You hate the Constitution. You hate and hate and hate, and you have made the Oval Office your Command Central for your hatred.

Sir, please stop!
