Editor:

I am writing to express how disappointed I am in the Daily Press that it printed the letter by Paul Bergman (“Checking the record,” Letter to the Editor, Nov. 10) in which he speculated that Hitler would be Jon Coupal’s hero if he voted for reduced taxes for the wealthy. It is outrageous to accuse someone you disagree with to be a supporter of one of the greatest mass murderers in history and it was irresponsible for the Daily Press to give such an accusation mass airing.

Is a supporter of liberal causes a fan of Mao or Stalin (both of whom exceeded Hitler in their slaughters of their own populations)? Of course not, and it cheapens serious discussions of real issues to make such comparisons or to lend them credence by publishing them.
