Liberal Noise

Ironically enough, the following Letter to the Editor appeared in The Kansas City Star on May 23 under the title “Conservative Noise”.

Why would any intelligent, fair-minded liberal or conservative listen to the putrid garbage spewed by the likes of Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck? It just boggles the mind to think that anyone thinks that these two promote our Constitution. They do nothing but promote hate, denigrate our president and hope for his failure, and consequently, the failure of our country.

It’s too bad that both of these “patriots” didn’t keep their promise to leave the country if health care reform passed. Now that would not only be a great good riddance but would truly promote our Constitution.

Delores Mair

When I come across folks like Delores, I challenge them to get a piece of paper and a pen and listen or watch an hour of their shows and write down the points they made that they disagree with or support their claims and then come back and we’ll talk, otherwise you’re just creating noise.

  1. That’s good.

    I also run into opinions like this in person often. Purpose of using the letter here is to illustrate common things we all hear and give an example of how to give feedback that might cause the person to think more about their position and others around to not just accept what they’re saying without facts to back it up. As a society, I think we’re terrible at that and then we let things that aren’t necessarily true end up becoming the the accepted narrative and most people just bob their heads in approval when something is said.
