Letters To The Editor

This is what you’re so upset about? This is the basis of accusing the president of committing a crime? No one is changing history here, and none of this is anything a Republican president would not do (were he as Internet-savvy as Obama and his administration is).

Editorials like this speak to a larger issue in the frum community, where some seem ready to dispense with any notion of fact or fairness when talking about this president. Wholly false stories about the president’s citizenship and religion are culled from far-right blogs and websites and presented as fact. The president is deemed a socialist, an authoritarian, and worse – and everything is always presented in the most alarmist tones imaginable.

This must stop immediately, and not only because it is longstanding practice in our community to be respectful when discussing elected officials because, after all, they are the ones we must work with to accomplish our goals. The uncivil dialogue is a chillul Hashem whether it is directed at a Democratic or Republican president.

No one is out to get us, and we do ourselves no favors by adopting the hyperpartisanship that, like a disease, has infected our public discourse to the point where the federal government can barely function, the accuracy of information is always suspect, and people live in irrational fear. It’s hurting our country.
