LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Dear Sir:

RE: Paul Jackson’s “Thunder on the Right,” Ojo Del Lago, June, 2010 (p. 17) I agree with Paul Jackson’s comment about not underestimating your political opponents.  I also agree that denigrating or degrading your political opponents is a very poor idea, often used by politicians who have no positive ideas of their own.

It is unfortunate that Glenn Beck does not share Paul Jackson’s wisdom.  Mr. Jackson says Glenn Beck has “impeccable research.”  Mr. Beck is the conservative talk show host who once promoted the work of Elizabeth Dilling, a Nazi sympathizer revered by White Supremacists.

In a strange about face, Mr. Beck now equates the Christian concept of social justice with Nazism and Communism.  Apparently, Mr. Beck’s “impeccable research” failed to uncover the New Testament and the ideas of a preacher named Jesus. I hardly think “impeccable research” is an appropriate term for Glenn Beck’s “investigations.”

Keep writing, Mr. Jackson, but choose your phrases more carefully.
