McFarland owes us all an apology

Bruce McFarland told readers much more than he intended with his May 11 column "Call to arms or cautionary tale?"
McFarland lumped together neo-Nazis, Ku Klux Klan, white supremacists, Minutemen, tea partiers and the Republican Party, accusing all of making "you" "angry about illegal immigration - very, very angry," as well as promoting hate-mongering. Then, as predictable, he presented an entire commentary spewing his own hate.

McFarland frequently demeans Fox News and anyone associated with it, but says he is "(not) a watcher of Fox News." This comment of denial is persistently prevalent from the mouths of liberals.

McFarland's admission of being unaware of the blatant trampling of civil rights that took place at Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, Calif. drives home the suppression of such an abhorrent event by the liberal mainstream media.

McFarland may need to spend some time watching Fox News, which would enable him to keep up with his brethren. Mucho liberal Bob Bechtel appears on Fox on a daily basis. On Sean Hannity's May 10 program, Bechtel angrily stated his resentment of anyone assigning deplorable acts of any one Democrat to all Democrats.

I have lived in the Santa Clarita Valley for more than 22 years; my wife has lived here 42 years. Not once have either of us seen or heard of any meeting of the Ku Klux Klan, a neo-Nazi group or white supremacists, let alone attended one. The tea partiers have held sane protests with absolutely no violence, property damage or police intervention.

To be more finite, it is immeasurably insensitive of the McFarland ilk to link Jews, like myself, to the likes of Nazis, the Klan and supremacists.

Considering the level of McFarland's obvious personal hate and anger, he owes a lot of people in Santa Clarita an apology. The Signal needs to stand in the apology line as well for its botched lack of prudent editing.
