Tea Party Patriots isolated in Northwest

No room for haters

If extreme conservatives like Tea Party Patriot Keli Carender are going to be consumed with anger, “not wanting to be around these (liberal) people” and “glaring at everyone around (her),” then she should move somewhere else [“Surrounded by liberals, tea-party group isolated,” NWTuesday, Nov. 13].

We have no room for haters like Carender here in Seattle and I only hope other parts of the country she mentions feel the same way. It’s time for Carender to put away her anger and instead ask herself why so much of the country is shifting away from values like hers.

If only 18 people show up at your meetings, your group is not a political party, it’s a group of haters. And by the way, if a neighbor puts an American flag in their yard, they're not a “secret conservative neighbor,” they're an American. And being from California is not “a virus.” Like the “lib” bumper sticker says, “Hate is not a family value.”

— Dan Travers, Seattle
