Letter: Independence lost

To the Editor:

Even at my age, I am concerned for myself and the future of America. I am amazed by the determination of the neoliberals to homogenize this nation of diverse independent Americans into a single-minded society of lemmings.

Young adults should have a deep concern for themselves and an intense concern for their children’s future in this politically charged dogma that is seeking to wipe out diversity and spin all mankind into identical creatures that think, look and act alike. Maybe that last sentence should be rephrased to “creatures that don’t think, don’t care and don’t try.”

The neoliberals’ strategy is being carried out by stifling free speech, denying natural diversity, silencing dissent, suppressing independent thinking, erasing self-reliance, erasing history and promoting a universal society of ambitionless, genderless, raceless, religionless zombies that they can easily control.

The day of the walking dead may not be that far away. Neoliberals ignore the U.S. Constitution and the laws that do not support their goals. What has become alarming is that the “free press” either ignores the lawbreaking or glosses over it.

The press, the media, are obviously likeminded neoliberals because they were all manufactured in the same liberal universities. The media has lost the moral compass of objectivity and bends the narrative in support of the liberal agenda that readily shifts course to satisfy the whims of identity politics.

For decades, “politically correct” rhetoric was used to bend and twist reality. Now, the truth is being perverted by a homogenous woke mindset that has convinced themselves that they are anointed the hierarchy to trump any and all dissenters.

News reports are tainted with a prejudiced narrative; key facts are misrepresented and/or ignored. The news is real; the storytellers are the traitors. Watch out, the media has been indoctrinated to hide and disguise the facts.

Often, it sounds like they themselves do not believe their own words, but the impostors keep following the script. You have to read between their lines to find the truth, not the myth.

Beware. There is more to this picture than meets the eye.
