In a guest column published June 19, David Michael Smith wrote that the website of Wayne Faircloth, Republican candidate for state representative in District 23, “contains some statements which reveal a disturbing bias against African-Americans and Hispanics.”
David Michael Smith’s guest column (“Campaign by Faircloth has disturbing views,” Daily News, June 19) contains all the usual liberal propaganda and accusations against legislative candidate Wayne Faircloth.
Among other things, Smith accuses Faircloth of “bigotry toward Hispanics” because Faircloth has made clear his opposition to illegal immigration.
Illegal immigration is a crime, and illegal immigrants are criminals.
There is nothing reprehensible about opposition to crime and criminals.
Smith, on the other hand, makes clear his bigotry by assuming that illegal immigrants are Hispanics.
Obviously, it is he, not Faircloth, who appears to be the bigot.
