Readers Write: QAnon, the Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers.

One thing that must be said about QAnon, The Proud Boys and The Oath Keepers: they are all organizations whose members must believe that they are truly patriotic.

Chances are that many of their fathers or grandfathers fought against the Nazis in World War II. How many of their family members died trying to protect the American way? How about some history, one based upon Facts!

Let’s talk statistics. The death toll for all Americans fighting the Nazis during World War II exceeded 400,000.

Over 23 million of our Russian and Polish allies died at the hands of the Nazis plus over 6 million Jews. During that period of time, Nazi Germany was an autocratic government led by their maniacal leader, Adolph Hitler.

You might ask, what is an autocratic government? It is one controlled by an individual who has absolute power, taking no account of other people’s wishes or opinions, one who is truly domineering. And you must know that Hitler, this deranged leader, is one person Donald Trump admires and wishes he could have the same power.

If Trump gets away with trying to overthrow the government, overcoming his legal obstacles and is elected President in 2024, it will be because he used all of his supporters as pawns by having them do all of his dirty work.

He convinced them to storm the Capitol, attack and injure 140 police officers and break into the building, urging the crowd to target and “Kill Mike Pence.”

Trump wants to be the dictator, the commanding general and that is funny since no one in his entire family ever fought in war. Trump even managed to evade being drafted during the war in Viet Nam.

To be a Patriot means to fight for your country; not to fight against it. History also shows that Republicans and Democrats always have had differences, but never to the point where one side, the Republicans, hate the Democrats, to the point where they want to kill them. It goes even further.

Trump has caused fellow Americans to hate each other which could lead to brother killing brother. Is this what you supporters of Trump want; to turn America into a country like Nazi Germany?

If this is the intention of what QAnon, Proud Boys and Oath Keepers want to do, here’s what any good patriotic American should do: Speak up and tell them to get the hell out of our country. Democracy! Let’s keep it. It’s the ultimate American way.
