Dave Brumbaugh: Monstrous generalizations

Wow. Your Dec. 13 editorial “Trumpenstein” took the notion of “painting with a broad brush” to a whole new level. Clearly, Donald Trump is mining that deep vein of xenophobic populism that recurs in American politics from time to time, but to claim that somehow Republicans countenance such attitudes is not correct.

If anything, Republicans’ natural affinity with entrepreneurship and private wealth creation is highly correlated with a welcoming embrace of immigrant communities.

In addition, ascribing racist motivations to principled opposition to a president unwilling to be constrained by the rule of law and willing to sacrifice American jobs and prosperity on the altar of global warmism is a calumny of the basest order.
