Conservative stereotyping

Once again Leonard Pitts has demonstrated his elitist ignorance of the majority of the American people (“Judge them by their own words,” May 27, 2018). His insulting and arrogant assumption that that anyone who disagrees with him only does so out of stupidity is the hallmark of liberal thinking.

Mr. Pitts has strayed from the truth in his examples of “typical” conservatives. Using deceit by implication, he tries to paint a picture of conservatives as unsophisticated dolts who never had an original thought until Fox News put one there. This is the kind of attitude that we conservatives are sick and tired of and which got President Trump elected.

No, Mr. Pitts, you will not convince me that your viewpoint is the correct one, which makes me no more narrow-minded than yourself. If you ever wonder how Trump got elected, you have only to look in the mirror.
