Letter: American left is delusional

Sorry I haven’t written a letter in about six weeks. The Post staff and I have been in friendly negotiations as to whether or not the First Amendment applies to conservatives. Water under the bridge.
Last Sunday’s opinion pages were saturated wall-to-wall with “Trump’s a racist pap.” Does it seem odd to anyone else that on Nov. 8, 2016, around 63 million supporters — aka American citizens — of President Donald Trump suddenly became “racist” overnight? Yeah, it struck me as peculiar too.
Converting millions of Americans into “Nazi lackeys” is a delusional ploy by the left to take back the White House. Is “White House” racist? This racism kick is nothing more than petrified Democrats realizing that Trump is winning more and more support from the minority community. Great economic times for said minorities will do that. My advice to liberals is to ride that “conservatives are racist” pony all the way to 2020. Forget policy ideas, other than socialism, and a $93 trillion price tag for eradicating cows and airplanes. Come on, Dems. Three cheers for racism!
Speaking of delusions, let’s dissolve our borders and offer free health care to the whole world. That’s what every Democrat running for president on a national debate stage raised their hand to support.
Another thought, throw all of our evil law enforcement folks on the border into prison with Trump. And don’t forget his 63 million racist supporters.
Our $22 trillion debt could double in 10 years. How much is $44 trillion? Hundred-dollar bills stacked tightly would reach over 29,000 miles into outer space. The human mind can’t comprehend $44 trillion.
While we’re at it, let’s move the Statue of Liberty to El Paso. That’ll make that loony “freshmen squad” positively giddy.  Uh oh, “freshmen.” Better add misogynist to my faults.
