I have read Zach Austin’s articles for the past three weeks, and each time I am more and more amazed at his hatred for our president, our country, and his desire to see our country fail in the face of evil. In his article, “The death of intelligent debate,” he implies that Republicans are, in fact, idiots. This is by no means what I would call responsible or intelligent journalism. I assume that, because I am a Republican, Austin must think that I am, in fact, an idiot. Oh the pain. What is comical about your articles, Austin, is that your childlike attacks against the right wing actually make you look like an idiot. To support my claim, let us look at statements you have made in your article.

You said that it was “outrageous,” “unintelligent,” and even called for a censure on debate when Rep. Don Young said: “Congressmen who willfully take action during wartime that damages morale and undermines the military are saboteurs, and should be arrested, exiled or hanged.”

I am assuming, Austin, that you wholeheartedly disagree with Young, in which case, I can infer that you support resolutions that damage the morale of our troops, and aid our enemy in a very bitter war. Make no mistake about the serious impact of the nonbinding resolution; the real impact is to encourage the enemy while attacking the morale of our troops. Bravo, Austin, bravo on portraying yourself as a traitor, and as an individual who desperately wants to see our country fail.
