  • Letter: Why can we no longer just ‘agree to disagree’?

    Our president was correct in condemning hatred coming from all sides.
    No violent acts should be condoned toward anyone for their beliefs. We all have the right to peaceful assembly under our Constitution. Freedom of speech is an inherent right to all.
    Equal rights means equal rights for all. Not just one side of the coin. We may not agree with the other side, but they do have the right to express their opinion, as long as it is done with no disruption toward anyone’s normal paths of travel or business hours.

  • Letter: No matter what Trump says, critics will ridicule him

    Athena Redmond’s column in the Aug. 18 paper is just more of the left’s trash thrown at President Trump because they can’t get over their corrupt, perjuring candidate losing the election.
    The “Unite the Right” protest in Charlottesville had a permit, but the leftist Antifa didn’t. They and other leftists, along with the racist white supremacists, caused the melee that ensued. The police failed to do their job as well.
    President Trump blamed all, and he was correct in doing so.

  • Column: Why Confederate monuments should stay

    Go to Lancaster’s Historic Courthouse and stand beneath the Confederate monument out front.
    This stately monument was unveiled June 4, 1909. It is one of the 52 such monuments that stand entrusted to our care in South Carolina.
    Better yet, go to the state Capitol grounds in Columbia and read the inscription on the monument there. It was erected by the organization Women of South Carolina to commemorate the Confederate soldiers. The inscription reads, in part:

    Let the South Carolinian
    Of another generation
    Remember

  • Column: Action plan for resisting hate groups

    Most everyone was outraged by what happened in Charlottesville. If you are in that tiny sliver of humanity that was not outraged, well….
    It is only human to react by asking, “What can I do?”

  • Letter: President egged on extremist behavior

    I am writing in response to Dr. L. Brooks Walker’s opinion column in Sunday’s paper, headlined “President is getting a raw deal.”
    Sorry, Dr. Walker, but he is getting just what he dished out.
    Let’s go back to the ’60s. The Black Panthers were labeled “militant,” but the KKK marched, recruited, burned crosses and did whatever they wanted to do.
