Letter to the Editor
Shocked by pro-Cruz letter

To the Editor:

In response to the letter from Donald Walsh of Franklin Square (“Senator Cruz is a hero, Al,” Oct. 24-30), as an American, I cherish our democracy and rights of all to hold and express our individual views, but I am frankly shocked that the Herald would print the dangerous, inflammatory rants of Donald Walsh, including his mis-characterization of President Obama as a “Muslim Marxist.”

I fear Walsh represents a frightening group of extremists whose emergence is on the increase since the 2008 election. The ultra-right-wing political views they express are merely a mask for their bigotry and hatred, and  their disgust that their president is not like them. “Leaders” such as Ted Cruz, who abuse their public service trying to derail the administration, are unfortunately giving the Donald Walshes of our nation a malignant voice.

"I cherish our democracy and rights of all to hold and express our individual views, but I am frankly shocked that the Herald would print the dangerous, inflammatory rants of Donald Walsh..."declares Karen Zang. Yet, in her next breath she expresses shock that the Nassau Herald would print the words of someone with whom she appaerently disagrees, unequivocally negating her claim of her support for the right to hold individual views. It seems that that which she cherishes falls short of the protections of the First Amendment. Her comments provide an excellent definition of hypocricy. To quote the late, great Senator from Arizona, the Hon. Barry Goldwater, let us not forget that "Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice."" And it should not be overlooked that extremism exists on bothe ends of the political spectrum.

As for Mr. Obama, his history, his policies and his anitpathy towards the Jewish State of Israel justify the belief that he, at the very least has a tendenxcy to favor Islam and Marxism.
