Letter: Don't disrespect the President

To the Editor:

I have had enough!

Everyone is entitled to their opinion but they are not entitled to approach a public servant in a public arena and spew their uninformed, misinformed and abusive opinions.

Asking a public servant to resign because of an opinion that the public servant is doing this or that or supporting some law which is harmful to their children, to the environment or to their pets is not solving any problems. If their opinion is so strong, then why not spend more of their time becoming part of the solution not the problem? The entitlement that comes with this abusive behavior has blossomed out of control.

Now we have a large chain store producing and selling diatribe on apparel “Impeach 54.” This type of behavior only contributes to unnecessary disruption. Priests vowing to march on major highways in protest, West Coast Politicians spewing more diatribe encouraging public confrontation with Cabinet members, Hollywood actors acting advocating and vocalizing their nonsense.

Whatever happened to respect? When did it become acceptable to disrespect the Office of the President? We are all entitled to our opinion but we are not entitled to show disrespect in an abusive, disruptive or injurious manner.
