Re: Steve Johnston's jingoistic rant & misinformation in the Pilot. The flag I fly and stand for as a veteran is not the one your dear leader Trump liked to hug and grope like the many women he "allegedly" assaulted over the years.

Your specious claim about "Native Americans walk thousands of miles to get into a country illegally," can't be about the Native Americans in the U.S., lied to and forced from their lands under the guise of "Manifest Destiny." Whereby mostly White Europeans took land by force in the name of their God. I suppose the same God put into the Declaration of Independence in the early 1950s. I guess that God doesn't care for Indigenous People or the many broken treaties they had to accept. Regarding the bizarre story about the Virginia rape case by a boy dressed as a girl, assuming the story is true and factual, to cast a very wide net in an attempt to label all Democrats as backing the rapist is ludicrous.

Conversely, the G"Q"P would force the young rape victim to carry out the pregnancy even if it would traumatize her further. My only surprise in Steve's letter was that he left out Democrats as baby eaters and Jewish space lasers. Maybe next time.
