Letter: The leftists are unhinged

To the Editor:

The Democrats and the leftists have become totally unhinged. Everything is a crisis demanding a riot, a demonstration or the closing of a highway. They now are screaming about the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Their claims that Roe v. Wade will be overturned and millions of women will die have no basis in fact. This is called fear-mongering! It’s unlikely the decision will be overturned, and if it were, the legality of abortion would be up to the states, where it always has belonged.

They even have made fun of his first name. How juvenile! He has very good credentials, and has promised to treat each case as it should be adjudicated. That is, by determining whether the law in question is constitutional. The justices are not there to legislate; that’s the job of Congress.

These fanatical groups blame their behavior on President Donald Trump. I believe their behavior would be just as reprehensible with any Republican in the White House. Consider how they excoriated Mitt Romney when he ran against Barack Obama.

They had their way for eight years and cannot abide the fact that they are no longer in power. In their arrogance, they call anyone who disagrees with them a fascist who deserves to be verbally and physically attacked and relentlessly harassed. Apparently Democrats believe this is the only way to win votes and return to power. Is it?
