Letter: Hate in America

            It breaks my heart to see the America I love be consumed by the hate groups that are trying to destroy it. Like the KKK, white supremacy, Black Lives Matter and others. I think most of these hate groups are not pleased with their own lives, so they take it out on others that have never hurt or done anything to them.

I think all of this started in Furguson when a cop killed a black man because he tried to take the cop’s gun. Obama came out several times and put the cops down; that is when the cop killings started. He was and still is a divider in America, just like the Washington Democrats. I heard someone say if we wanted to get rid of the hate, we would have to get rid of the Washington Democrats. They can’t take it since Donald Trump is president.

I have heard some say they will never vote for a Democrat again because of the way Trump has been treated since he won. Remember, Obama sent his group to Israel to fix it so Netayahu would lose the election but he won. If all of this hate don’t stop there is going to be a civil war.

            These groups are wanting all Confederate monuments taken down; others wants them to stay up. I agree because that is part of history. If they are taken down, they need to take down every monument no matter what they represent if they are white, black or other, then maybe these groups will be satisfied for a few weeks until they think or see something else they want to destroy. They are never happy.

            I don’t sit and worry about it because Jesus Christ, my savior, said every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess. I would hate to be one of the people who don’t go by his work because he shed his blood for you and me.
