Mahalo to The Maui News for its ‘editorial fight’

Thanks to the editorial writer of The Maui News for joining the “editorial fight” against Fascist Trump (“Today’s Editorial,” Aug. 16). There is nothing about the man, including his name, that deserves respect. According to The Associated Press, more than 300 news outlets pledged to run editorials against Trump’s divisive comments about the media on Aug. 16.

Controlling the media is a definite indicator of a dictator, as we have seen historically with Nazi Germany, Soviet Russia and Communist China, to name a few. As individuals, we need to speak up against the tyranny Trump and his supporters are generating.

Thanks again to The Maui News for speaking out in defense of our great nation and its constitutional protections.
