To the editor:
Apparently, Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene is upset because people believe that she is “angry, or crazy, or unintelligent”. [Of course, she blames the media].
I would suggest that she consider the words of former Diagonal and Mount Ayr Community School coach and teacher O.C. “Pop” Varner.
My husband, Karl Gepner, said that “Pop always told his students that it was better to be silent and thought dumb then speak out and remove all doubt.”
Pop did not originate that statement, it may have been a Biblical proverb, or from writers and thinkers like John Maynard Keynes, Mark Twain, Abraham Lincoln, or even Confucius.
Another individual who might profit from Pop’s words of wisdom is Fox Host Tucker Carlson who said, “that the Buffalo shooting was not racially motivated.”
Seriously Tucker, Payton Gendron targeted the Tops Friendly Supermarket in a predominately black neighborhood in Buffalo, New York with the aim of killing as many black people as possible.
I realize that you are a rich entitled white man but even you can’t actually believe that this attack was not racially motivated.
As a so-called newsman, before you made such a patently stupid statement surely you researched Gendron’s past actions and writings prior to the Buffalo massacre.
It was all online including gruesome blood-spattered pictures of him stabbing and beheading a feral cat. Before the attack, he posted a 180-page diatribe of his white supremacist beliefs.
The standards of Fox personalities like Laura Ingraham and Tucker Carlson probably have Edward R. Murrow and Walter Cronkite spinning in their graves.
