The Salt Lake Tribune’s editorial was titled “Love in the 4th.” It should have been titled “Fascism in 2018.”

Under the extremely dubious reasoning that “Love is just finding her way,” The Tribune ignores the fact that re-election of a Republican Congress would justify and reinforce Donald Trump and the Republicans’ belief that the future of the nation is white male supremacy, keeping poor people poor and unrepresented, stifling a free press, ignoring climate change at our peril, totally disrupting global relations, and catering to the oligarchs who now own our country.

In my 40 years of reading Tribune editorials, this one is truly the worst and the most short-sighted. I grieve for our country if people follow your lead.
