Some people don’t know the difference between fact and opinion. Take Roy Roddy in his recent letter. He said "... a desperate (Republican) party can only think of disenfranchising the minority base in America.”
His opinion but not a fact; therefore, it's a lie. He also said, “The Republicans stand with groups that wave Confederate and Nazi flags ...” Again, his opinion but not a fact — another lie. Naughty Roy.
When I was an election judge, a number of minority Democrats tried to vote, listing their address as a mailbox in a UPS store.
And for a fact, the Democratic Party was a big backer of the KKK; its long-term senator, Robert Byrd, was an exalted cyclops of the Klan. He actually filibustered for 24 hours against the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
