To the Editor:
When I was eight I heard Arkansas republicans chanting “Nixon Nixon he’s my man, Kennedy belongs in the garbage can”. When I was 12 Oswald killed John Kennedy. Only a few years later both Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King lay dead victims ultimately of hate.
Along the way I saw attack leaflets by George Wallace supporters in northwest Alabama claiming that Albert Brewer’s daughter was pregnant by a black man.
Enough is enough already with the hatred and lies! These vicious attacks are dangerous and uncalled for and John McCain and Sarah Palin are irresponsible for not calling out those who shot “kill him” and “off with his head” at campaign rallies.
Appears to be that the McCain campaign is stoop very deep into the mud to attract ill-informed and educationally and emotionally challenged voters. If the Republican Party is going to act this way perhaps they should henceforth be referred to as the “know-nothing” party.
