Reaction to Nov. 16 editorial cartoon

Regarding your Nov. 16 editorial cartoon: I would like to know why you would print this racial gaff? The caption reads “AngryWhiteMenistan.” Now, switch that around to read “AngryBlackMenistan,” and you wouldn’t have the cheek to print it. But, like all the media today, you slam white males. Such is the agenda of the far left.

The cartoon you depict indicates all white men desiring to secede from the United States. What would prompt this? It would be necessary to look past the shortsighted pages and notice a media-smothered backlash from Obama’s re-election.

Could it have been the Obama cell phones handed out, as the Dayton Daily News reports: $26.9 million spent giving out phones to low-income individuals? That number of recipients doubled in the last year to more than 1 million in Ohio.

On Nov. 15, ABC News published an article about 59 voting divisions in Philadelphia where not one Romney vote was recorded. Fraud? Yes. The same article cites St. Lucie County, Fla. having about 175,500 registered voters. But more than 247,383 votes were counted. In more than 100 precincts in Cuyahoga County, Ohio, Obama received 99 percent of the votes. Does that seem plausible?

It seems odd Obama lost in every state requiring photo identification for voting.

Barack Obama received 98 percent of the vote in 10 out of the 50 wards in Chicago.

Prior to the election, voters in the states of Nevada, North Carolina, Texas and Ohio reported that voting machines were switching their votes for Romney over to Obama. Many Ohio voters that showed up at the polls on Election Day were surprised when they were informed that they had already voted.

In Wisconsin, there were allegations that Obama voters were actually being bused in from out of state.

Your presentation of this antagonistic satire oppresses ALL races of American males who would stand for the truth. Unfortunately, such calumny is common fare found in your leftist rag.

Editor’s note: The cell phone program is part of the national Lifeline program, begun in 1985 and expanded to include cell phones in 2005. According to the Federal Communications Commission, the program was started “to ensure that all Americans have the opportunities and security that phone service brings, including being able to connect to jobs, family and emergency services.”

According to the same ABC News report that Mr. Clemons cites, votes cast on long-form ballots in St. Lucie County were counted twice by error. The story says that the error was corrected and the correct number of votes for each candidate tallied.

According to Fox News, voters in Nevada, North Carolina, Texas and Ohio who voted using touch-screen voting machines reported the machines tallied their votes in error.  “The voters in question realized the error and were able to cast ballots for their actual choice,” Fox News reported.

I have long been amused, disgusted or both by the narrow-minded, hateful and often outright ignorance of the Herald’s editorial opinion writers. Last week’s rant was particularly vicious.

This birdcage liner of a paper’s apparent attempt at political “cartoon” was just too much.

We are through. Your paper is filth and you are no longer welcome in my home. I am removing the blue box from my mailbox post. I should have done it long ago.
