Letter to the editor- Censorship is tool of the trade

Tribune

To the editor:

Freedom of speech and freedom to dissent is as American as apple pie. Yet adherents of post Sept. 11 hyperpatriotism have been attacking any of those who won’t march in lock-step with their knee jerk reactions. Intimidation, intolerance, censorship and hate are the tools of their trade. Do we all have to wear “Proud to be an American” t-shirts to be considered bonafide Americans?

Could it be that the Harry Potter book burners in New Mexico are descendants from people who have been burning people like Harry for hundreds of years?
