Dogged opposition

Dogged opposition (KAL/Baltimore Sun / April 13, 2014)

KALs' cartoon from April 13 ("Dogged opposition") is so wrong that I hardy know where to begin. For starters, it was the Republicans in Congress who championed Civil Rights legislation against fierce Democratic resistance. Secondly, what does a group like the tea party have to do with opposing civil rights for all Americans? I am not a member of the tea party, but their platform seems reasonable to me. Limited government, fair and reasonable taxation and government responsibility and accountability.

Finally , as the IRS scandal clearly shows, if civil rights were violated, the conservative groups were the targets. Lois Lerner and Rep. Elijah Cummings are up to their eyeballs in this scandal, and I hope they both go to prison.

The Baltimore Sun and KAL are so blind in their partisanship that reality takes a holiday with them. It would be laughable if it weren't so disgusting.
