As a “Progressive,” I was insulted by your article in the Feb. 15 edition. A bunch of cherry-picked, distorted facts; conclusions not supported at all by the facts; and a mass of insults.

Since the purpose of an editorial is supposed to be to provoke thought based on reasoned arguments, I would request that the Coastal Journal run editorials by someone like David Brooks or Charles Krauthammer.

There is no reason to subject your readers to this kind of nonsense.

BTW, Donald Trump is NOT the United States of America. It is possible to love America, which we do, and abhor the words and policies of Trump.
