Letter to the editor: Symbols of hatred

To the editor:

I support carrying the United States flag and yelling “USA!” After all, I carried our country’s flag for 24 years as an American soldier.

But if you are participating in a group activity where members of that group are displaying white supremacist hate symbols such as the flag of slave owners and rebels, then you are either saying “I’m a white supremacist terrorist” or “I support white supremacist terrorists.”

That I do not support and will actively fight against in our community.

You are not a patriot and you are not displaying the values that make our country great when you march with white supremacist terrorists and their symbols of hatred.
