The following Letter to the Editor from Indivisible AVL member and volunteer Lyn Miller was published in the Asheville Citizen-Times on November 4, 2019. We reprint it here by permission.
“Remember that wacky DC comics creation, ‘Superman: Tales of Bizarro World’ –where everything is inverted, opposite or backwards? It’s a place where good is bad, ugly is beautiful, up is down, Earth is a cube, not a sphere.
“Welcome to Trump World – an absurd condition of irrationality where you really didn’t see what you saw or actually hear what you heard; Truth becomes Fake News, lies are the new truth. Those most inexperienced and incompetent are elevated to the highest positions while those most qualified are pushed out and vilified. Can’t get security clearances? No problem! You’ll undoubtedly be tasked with the most sensitive of negotiations.
“Albert Einstein said ‘The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.’ Fox News and several Members of Congress have debased themselves by questioning the loyalty and credibility of a decorated Iraq war veteran and Harvard educated Ukraine expert with 20 years of service because he immigrated to the U.S. at age 3. Lt. Colonel Alexander Vindman’s testimony regarding what he heard the president say exemplifies true patriotism – a concept completely foreign to Trump World inhabitants.”
