I'm disturbed and dismayed to

I'm disturbed and dismayed to read this column. I visit Port Aransas a few times a year--and it's a wonderful little place that continues to get better. I bought this issue of the South Jetty to read the story about the theft at the ARK on July 4th. The most disturbing thing I keep reading from writers of the left-wing political scene, to which Ms. Judson obviously belongs, is what haters those of us must be, simply from being supporters of Donald Trump. The scary behavior I do see, and read about, on an almost weekly basis, is the violence and intimidation on college campuses across the country towards any--any--conservative speaker who dares try and speak on campus. That's where the really ugly brawls are (Berkeley.) And the real "hate speech" ? Look to Hollywood for that.--- Madonna, Kathy Griffin, Mark Ruffio--the vulgarities never end. Suggestions of killing the President--burning down the White House. You'll find most American citizens simply want to be left to support whom they wish--without being constantly labeled "haters." And there was that infamous word--"deplorables?" It didn't serve Mrs. Clinton well. Or the country.
