Letter: Reliving our most egregious history

To the Editor:

Consumers of Fox News have been deceived into believing that President Trump is the second coming of Ronald Reagan, and although there are many similarities, all of them are nefarious in nature.

Just a few examples are:

• Both Trump and Reagan arguably committed treason and felonies to get elected. Reagan's treason by negotiating arms to Iran and holding off the release American hostages until after the election. Trump, being financially compromised by Russia, then compromised national security by sharing polling data that a foreign adversary used to attack our elections system by deceiving some citizens with targeted lies and misinformation via Qanon and America’s Right Wing propaganda machine.

• They both were B actors who amassed a cult following, and both are puppets of the fascist oligarchy spearheaded by the Koch Cabal, which currently controls the entire Republican Party.

• Reagan destroyed the world’s strongest middle class with his ludicrous tax cuts for the rich, trickle down “Voodoo Economics,” union busting, corporate and media deregulation that has given rise to the Fox News, One America News and Sinclair propaganda machine. Trump has doubled down on these middle class, destroying them, and adding to income inequality with exasperating policies. 

• Most nefarious of all is Trump using the same Bill Barr for the same reason Reagan and Bush used him. On Dec. 24, 1992, then corrupt Attorney General Barr assisted Bush’s cover-up of the Iran Contra Scandal when then special counsel Lawrence Walsh was seeking indictments against Reagan and Bush. Barr covered up the evidence and then proposed the pardons of six felons, including Oliver North (current NRA), Elliot Abrams (current Trump Administration) and Casper Weinberger. Barr is currently covering up the crimes of Trump and the Republicans in Congress, who both illegally accepted Russian bribes through the NRA and are hiding the biggest scandal in American history from the public. 

Reliving America’s most egregious history once again proves Republican traitors to America, our Democracy and our Rule of Law are best at covering the crimes of their own treasonous felons.

On Nov. 3, 2020, America must end this fascist nightmare and impeach these criminals at the ballot box.
