July 28 — To the Editor:

Conservatives are fed up!

Fed up with false claims of Republicans supporting white supremacists.

Fed up with being called racists.

Fed up with the corrupt FBI, CIA, US Attorney, and NSA as well as their socialist agenda.

Fed up with a one-sided judicial system.

Fed up with attacks on fossil fuel and rising inflation.

Fed up with Biden enriching China.

Fed up with an open southern border, human trafficking, fentanyl killing hundreds of thousands of Americans, individuals on the terrorist watch list entering this county, and the enrichment of cartels.

Fed up with liberals re-writing history and CRT.

Fed up with the liberal media, Twitter, and Facebook blocking conservative speech and the truth about the Biden family and NOT apologizing for the Russia Hoax.

Fed up with mask and vax mandates, the WHO, the NIA and Fauci.

Fed up with rising crime across the country and failure to pass meaningful legislation and enforce that legislation to curb gun violence.

Fed up with elites in DC enriching themselves at the expense of Americans.

Fed up with the partisan Jan 6th Committee.

Fed up with the person who claimed he would govern as a moderate uniter.

Fed up with Democrat attempts to gaslight the American people.

What's the actual discussion point you're after? Agree or disagree with the letter? Take out the U.S.-specific names and references, and this could have been written by any right-wing person in Canada.

Here is your song Ms. Russell:

 
It doesn't appear to be a letter, just points cherry picked from various letters and assembled - i.e. fake news.
 
Fed up with a one-sided judicial system.

Fed up with attacks on fossil fuel and rising inflation.
Out of the complaints these are some of the weirdest from the letter. Based on the Supreme Court rulings recently, conservatives should be celebrating what a one sided judicial system we have!
As a green supporter I feel that we have a lot more legitimacy in complaining about being fed up of the environment being attacked for the benefit of the fossil fuel industry. This is classic short term gain for long term pain.
Also everyone is fed up of inflation, it doesn't just affect conservatives!

Most, though not all the complaints in the letter are garbage.
 
If she hates America so much….
 
So I'm unsure whether it's satire.

If it's not (and even if it is), it's a stark situation that so many agree with so many points on that list. Some of them I can understand being frustrated with ("stop calling us fascists"), but a majority of the points are completely out of touch with reality in ways that aren't even debatable. Watching US conservative discourse from Europe is baffling. Including to conservatives here, mind you.
 
Well two people have made that comment, so I suppose I will cease posting these letters here. Very simply I find crazed letters to the editor amusing.

Normally post something, along side their opinion.. that creates discussion. You are very welcome to post letter here.. but give context please :)
 
I guess my objection is that it's just holding up an extreme example of someone opposed to your own political positions for the sake of mockery. It feels a little like a sort of general strawmanning of conservatives, as much as "boy howdy there's some real whackjobs writing letters to the editor".
 
Just by the way, my all-time favorite letter was from a man who insisted the government was seeding clouds to prevent rain from falling. He said he heard four-engine planes over his house late at night. How can you hear a four-engined plane? Doesn't it sound like a twin-engined plane?

So why not post that one?
