Curley caves to the mob

First the Girl Scouts cave to the liberal media mob and retract their letter of congrats to Amy Coney Barrett for her Supreme Court appointment. Now Rob Curley caves to the mob pressure over the paper endorsing President Trump, stating it’s time to end the tradition of endorsing.

The left is so unhinged that they browbeat the paper so bad that you are going to change this tradition. Problem is the more people cave to the left, the more power it gives them and the more they will continue to shout down anyone that doesn’t agree with them. Ever notice what a one-sided game this is?

I’ve seen the Spokesman endorse many I didn’t agree with over the years but never have I ever seen the conservatives blow a gasket over it. The vile letters and articles I’ve seen over the last week from the left are outrageous and childish. “If we don’t get our way we will take our ball and go home” mentality.

The Spokesman is 4 to 1 with liberal articles and letters versus conservative, but I guess that’s just not enough for the left. Where is your backbone, Rob, to give in to these kind of antics? You should be ashamed of your actions to trash a tradition for fear of losing subscriptions. What about the fear of loss with us Silent Majority conservatives? We either don’t matter as much to you or you are just more afraid of the wrath of liberalism.
