Leading by fear

Dear Editor,

With President John F. Kennedy, it was his being Catholic and the fear that the pope would be running our country.

Funny, that’s not a concern with Joe Biden. With Barack Obama is was “death squads” that would decide who lives or dies in “The Affordable Care Act,” the confiscation of all our guns and we’d be ruled by Sharia law.

The whole Republican platform seems to run on fear and paranoia. You must stay scared so you don’t think.

Facts are now a hoax. Lies are now truths. Anti-fascists are now the bad guys and vigilante militias and “proud boys” are now the good guys!

So when did the world get tipped upside down? I’d guess about four years ago.
