Letter to the Editor: Sweigert spreads hypocritical propaganda

Sweigert once again is filling space in the Sierra Sun with comments in the November 16 issue that would appear to be regurgitated from the and#8220;hate machineand#8221; of Fox Radio or some other such right wing mouth piece.

It also seems that he is missing some key points that were not printed in his column with regards to his attack on President Obama. Let me say that a large percentage of the American population are propagandized by misinformation and direct lies from both political parties, with the and#8220;rightand#8221; producing the majority of statements that are full of hypocrisy.

What Mr. Sweigert fails to include in his attacks on President Obama is the total mess the previous administration created in their time in office resulting in two wars and a failed economy that even Superman would find difficult to repair, especially with the opposing Republican Party doing everything it can to make Obama fail at the cost to the American people.

We have a right to be frustrated with our government, but it seems Mr. Sweigert is typical of so many opinionated people in our country that are blinded by their own ability to see the facts and instead adhere to the divisive propaganda of choice.

It still puzzles me why the Sierra Sun prints a weekly column by Mr. Sweigert.
