Dems trying to save country from fascism


The Tribune’s choice of political cartoon printed Thursday depicting Sen. Charles Grassley with a crying child representing Democrats is something I must protest.

This cartoon is incredibly short sighted. What is at stake if Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court goes far beyond a party not getting its way. What is at stake is a myriad of rights that will be stolen from our citizens as members of a free society. If Kavanaugh is confirmed, Donald Trump will essentially become king and our democracy will be gone.

We “crying Democrats” are desperately trying to save the very soul of our country from despotism and fascism. If one cannot see that, look beyond the end of your nose.
