Letter writer’s conclusions were ‘far removed from reality’

Written by  Staff Writer

To the editor,
In response to the opinion from Mr. Scheifley (April 1 letters to the editor), I only can think he wrote it as a provocateur. The conclusions are so far removed from reality that it’s hard to imagine anyone could actually believe them, although we know they do.

The danger lies in the fact that perhaps it will confirm the suggestions for those who do believe — but probably those people will not be reading a newspaper.  However, the heart of the conspiracy theorist movement must originate in the racist/bigot mindset. The suggestion that “America is importing people from low-IQ Third World countries with dysfunctional cultural norms and turning America into a multicultural paradise” began when the Europeans descended and displaced/killed Native Americans and then compounded it by introducing millions of slaves to build their wealth dynasties. Who determines “dysfunctional”?  

As far as Switzerland, where “every male citizen has a real assault rifle at home,” that statement is too absurd to acknowledge — any Internet search (avoiding “fake news”) will demonstrate that. Check out the writer’s claim on Snopes for openers. And there are strict regulations, pages of them, requiring registration, training and applications.  Ammunition access also is restricted.

Face it: Most of the industrial world is becoming multicultural and demeaning people outside your comfort zone isn’t going to change that.
