WOMEN'S MARCH MADNESS

a letter to the Albuquerque Journal from my uncle, Gilbert Aragon:

Wow. I'm amazed that columnist Joline Gutierrez Krueger dragged herself out of the self-pity bar she normally resides in to report on Saturday's gathering of jade egg warriors in Santa Fe, the one place in New Mexico completely hostile to reality.

Given all the hate at the "Love Trumps Hate women's-march-and-banner-waving" they managed to shower us with, gave me reason to laugh if not for their mindless, unreasoning petulance but for the hysterics-flavored comedic effect they spread.

But why was this piece of snarky tripe front page material? Why does one-sided coverage merit such a podium? Certainly, President Trump's efforts to revive oil-carrying pipelines that would help America would be far more impactful upon us than this space waster. And the tiny sports page notice that the Philadelphia Phillies traded off pitcher Severino Gonzalez to the Miami Marlins has a significantly greater consequence on my life. But a breathless front page article on the noisy activity of 'sisters', the liberal word for 'lunatic', is a bit much.

Nevertheless, what's with the Journal? Along with the assorted nasty cartoons and anti-Trump pundit editorials, this is the same type of hate piece we would see on a daily basis when George W. Bush was president (and Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush and any Republican who has dared to reside in the White House). Are there absolutely no local conservatives who are allowed to write at the Journal? Any men? Is diversity a meaningless term reserved only for the un-diverse?

Man, oh, man, this is liberal deja vu all over again.
