YOUR SAY: Today’s rhetoric betray’s long tradition

On March 7, I read an alarming letter by Travis Middleton. He began by describing a variety of groups as spineless, self-centered parasites, including African- Americans, gays, Hispanics, union members, welfare recipients, abortion advocates, potheads and environmentalists. His list appeared to expand well beyond Gov. Mitt Romney’s contemptible comment about the 47 percent and referred to these groups as possessing a “herd mentality” made up of those who trade their votes for political favors.
