Opinion: Letter to the Editor



Dear Augusta Press Editor,

To discontinue publishing six Dr. Seuss books because of racist and insensitive imagery will not help change America’s racist character no more than dressing up like a clown changed serial killer John Wayne Gacy’s character.

  1. Mr. Palmer, you are clearly the victim of politically motivated brainwashing. Don’t feel bad, you are far from alone. Vast numbers of Americans are being programmed to believe that we are a nation with a “systemic” racism problem, and that this problem is getting worse. We are taught that racism has become a principal guiding force in all US policy, domestic and international, and that drastic action must be taken to expunge it. I invite you to recognize that the “teachers of the law” whom Jesus blasted in Matthew 23 as hypocrites and “whitewashed tombs” are analogous to so many in our governing elite class, including those who spread the divisive lie of “systemic racism” as part of a scheme to satisfy their lust for money and for power over you. Your reference implies that you recognize the moral authority of Christ, and I recommend to all His lifesaving message that is to be found in major part in the red letters of the New Testament. This is the best way to foster amicable race relations. May He grant you, me, and as many others who will accept it, the gift of discernment.

  2. As a new subscriber to The Augusta Press, I find a story about Mayor Hardie “haw haw” Davis about his spending using the city’s credit card for purchases that are questionable. I have seen nothing from The Augusta Chronicle and their liberal press and reporting is awful! It amazes me that this has not been investigated before question arose from The Augusta Press! My subscription with the Chronicle has been cancelled and will not be renewed! Thank you Augusta Press newspaper for reporting news about our community and what is going on locally!
