Re: Kevin Foley column

I can only hope that the MDJ will have the same courage to print my letter as they had in printing the Friday column by Kevin Foley. I do not read his article on a regular basis as I am aware that we are of extremely different opinions politically, but seeing Dr. Carson’s name in the headline was a draw. I was appalled and disgusted with Foley’s misrepresentation of Carson’s remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast as well as his interpretation of the biblical teaching to “render unto Caesar those things that are Caesar’s.” Of course, why should anyone not expect that Mr. Foley would take the words of Jesus Christ and manipulate them to his liberal thinking?

The primary purpose of this article was to distort and disparage Dr. Carson and all that this gentleman stands for as a conservative. It is beyond understanding as to what extreme liberals such as Foley are so afraid of when someone disagrees with their opinions. I think he should fear not, as the party he so admires has held minorities back with free goodies for votes for many years. To refer to Dr. Carson and former Congressman Alan West as “lost souls” because they are black conservatives has to be one of the most insulting statements ever put in print.

Thank God I am one of those “lost souls” as well.

@ From Texas (whoever you are and after this racist rant, I'm not surprised you want to remain anonymous) - Goof balls like you are the problem with America, not Obama or even Bush.

This post, like a lot of your others, tells everyone you're an ignorant, ill educated bigot. It would be best if you and your ilk did go "off the grid". Why don't you move to northern Idaho, where the white supremacist movement will welcome you with open arms?

Yes, madam, we have extremely different views. However, that doesn't keep me from familiarizing myself with what conservatives have to say. I try to keep an open mind. May I recommend the same to you?

If the grid goes down and I ever see you being dragged around in the street by some gang bangers I’ll be sure not to interfere with that. I’ll drive home and watch the helicopters as there filming you like they filmed Mr. Denny in L.A... The reason you all don’t care for Allen West and Ben Carson is they threaten the giant Democratic Plantation and the black vote that is always there for welfare give-a-ways. Obama has set race relations back 30 years with his racist crap, Gorge Bush Jr. was an idiot and Obama is even more dangerous, people like you always try the race card just like Crazy Chris Mathews. There are two America’s emerging all of us that are tried on giving away everything; are going to pull resources together and live in their own compounds and get off the grid. That’s why it’s so important to take the guns away; the blacks all across the Northeast have been disarmed through Jim Crow laws in every major big city. I would name those cities but I understand that’s racist as Joe Friday says just the facts Mam. If the Jim Crow laws were in place down south you would be ranting about that. The bottom line is the minority majority like Chicago can’t protect them self’s from the gang bangers or the government.
