Letter: Countering Hamilton’s innuendoes
To the Editor:
In William Hamilton’s opinion, “Ebola: Will government protect us?” I ask myself, which government, the “do nothing” Republican-controlled Congress or the Obama administration?
Knowing his previous opinion, he means Obama, and in order to make us mistrust the Obama administration, he questions their trustfulness, that they make us “think” ebola is transmitted by coming in contact with the bodily fluid of ebola victims. And, for good measure, he throws in the HIV/AIDS scare of the ’80s (wasn’t Ronald Reagan president then?) and the 50,000 Central American minors, who will now bring all kinds of diseases to American schools. Ha.
The bad part is, Hamilton is a master in presenting half-truths and false innuendoes — insinuation, rather than outright lies — which are more difficult to counter.
So, one can counter his writings by ignoring it, not reading it or disregarding the whole newspaper for printing it. My advice, why don’t you do the same as a major Dallas newspaper, cancel Hamilton’s column and replace him with a more truthful, Republican if need be, writer?
Start a dialogue, stay on topic and be civil.
