Letter to the editor: Crossing a line

To the editor:

After watching the recorded chants of “Send her back” at his North Carolina hate rally Wednesday, I conclude that President Donald John Trump and his followers are committing federal hate crimes. The line has been crossed. Even small children are being encouraged to chant. As we learned from the line in the musical “South Pacific,” “You’ve got to be taught to hate and fear.”

Sadly, we see this happening in America.

Richard Sengpiehl,
