Pitts owes an apology

Leonard Pitts just can’t help himself. He represents what the left thinks about Republicans, conservatives, Trump supporters — including independents — that the left is just smarter than the rest of us! If we were smarter we would see things the way he does!

One of the problems with the left is their inability to see someone else’s point of view. Either you agree with the left or you are just wrong!

To say that Hillary’s Basket of Deplorables statement is true is in fact proof of the ignorance of his “educated” statement! Education is more than four years at a liberal leaning college institution.

My grandfather came to Lincoln County at 17 years old with a friend to get work in an orchard in Wenatchee in 1912. He had a fourth-grade education. He ended up in Wilbur, Washington, and in spite of his lack of education ended up buying and assembling 2,000 acres of farmland that is still in our family today.

Leonard Pitts couldn’t any more do that with his “education” than fly!

He owes people of all walks of life, with less education than he has an apology for his discriminatory statement.

You know who we are … those of us clinging to our religion and our guns.
