On Aug. 31, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow did an ugly diatribe on the Republican National Convention by renaming it the HMC, the Huddled Masses Convention.
She showed clips of several of the speakers telling of their humble beginnings, with parents or grandparents coming from foreign lands. Following that came a picture of the Statue of Liberty and she laughingly referred to the words, "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free."
Thousands of people, including my grandparents, were among these people who came to our shores, raised productive families and worried over sons fighting in World War II. In her few minutes of hateful words, she also maligned the goodness of the Greatest Generation.
Maddow and her cohorts on MSNBC shamefully trample on our freedoms of speech and the press with the sewage that spews from their mouths. Hopefully our intelligent citizenry does not fall into the spider web of their abusive ways of thinking.
