Celebrate our soldiers, police and ICE agents | Letter to the editor

To the editor:

A recent letter to editor applauded the historical Review for condemning “the tyranny of that era, the forceable internal deportation of our fellow citizens from this Island,” in other words, President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Executive Order 9066.

During that same period 15 million citizens enlisted and countless millions worked on the homefront in war-time industries fighting Japan and Germany. Did the Review stand up for those patriots with the same fervor? I wonder.

Let’s fast forward to today. Does the Review ever celebrate the 3 million soldiers serving around the world? Celebrate the brave police, firefighters, ICE agents and custom agents who stand up to non-stop bullying and non-stop falsehoods from the jaundiced elite who lost an election?

A cursory review of the Review, hard copy and online, will show how far the spirit of editor Walt Woodward has degraded.
