I read Ilan Gilbert’s letter accusing Donald Trump of promoting hate in America by stating there were good people on both sides of the Charlottesville event.

My question to you, sir, is this: Were you so vehement in damning Hillary Clinton when she was so friendly with Robert Byrd, a former KKK member? Were you so vehement in damning Barrack Obama when he posed in a very friendly manner with the same? Was it OK for them to be so palsy-walsy with known white supremacists, but not someone of another political party?

You Democrats make me very ashamed. I used to be a member of the Democratic Party, but have since turned away because of the shameful, un-American way you are behaving.

Well, you have your opinion, but a lot of people have differing opinions. And we vote.
