Letters to the Editor

Letter: Virtue signaling

Whenever I see Donald Trump surrounded on stage by American flags or holding a Bible in Lafayette Square, I’m reminded of a quote attributed to Sinclair Lewis: “When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in a flag and carrying a cross.”  

Waving a flag doesn’t make you a patriot and holding a Bible doesn’t make you religious any more than holding a scalpel makes you a surgeon.

— Gary Griffeth
