Regarding the March 5 news article “Hundreds rally downtown to show support for Trump”: I have read several articles about the March 4 Trump rally in Raleigh and one thing concerned me.
I know rhetoric is high at these types of political activities, but when I read that Sen. Ron Rabin said that those who stand against Trump are guilty of insurgency, sedition and “high crime and misdemeanor” my blood ran cold.
Do we live in a democracy with the right to freely express our opinions, or has our government become an oligarchy that accuses dissenters of treason?
In the country I love we do not create false accusations of crime if someone objects to the policies and promises of our leaders.
Never miss a local story.
Rabin should apologize for his accusations and publicly support our residents’ right to dissent.
