The Alameda Unified School District (AUSD) Board missed a chance to do something bold for our kids. I’ve attended meetings for several months and met some members. Without a doubt, we have intelligent board members who devote their time and clearly care about our children. Sometimes you have to take a stand for something that may be unpopular, or perhaps against an irrational state rule. In this case, the mask mandate.
The Republican National Committee (GOP) at its February 2022 meeting in Salt Lake City, made clear that Republicans remain firmly in support of traditional, family values. The committee passed a resolution supporting the strongest party platform to date on religious liberty and moral/social issues. The Resolution to Reaffirm Our Commitment to the Current Republican Party Platform stated:
“The RNC reaffirms its unwavering commitment to the Republican Party Platform and pledges to continue to structure all initiatives in a manner that furthers the policies reflected therein.”
Regarding “American Fascism on the Rise” (Insight, Jan. 2): I would say that extremism on the right and left is on the march. Both my parents remember Nazism and fascism really well. They heard the bombs falling and saw the destruction. They also were aware of concentration camps as a Jewish family lived in my grandparents’ house.
I grew up about five hours from the East German border. I had the opportunity to visit the Soviet Union in 1976. I saw little children marching in goose step just like in Nazi Germany. I also saw the Berlin Wall that prevented people from leaving the “workers' paradise.”
So, I believe in this Republic. I also believe in a multiparty system. Democrats have the White House, Senate and House. This is one-party rule.
Public safety is often equated with “law and order” and fascism is implied. This is wrong. I used to be able to travel around the Bay Area safely. I now cannot do so alone due to a disability.

Our brave law enforcement is under attack in California! From radical liberals trying to defund our officers to increased attacks from criminals and gangs-- they are under severe threat. In 2021 ALONE:
❌ 314 Officers Shot
❌ 58 Officers Killed by Gunfire
❌ Ambush Attacks on Officers Up 126% from 2020
Half of Californians have said they DON’T support our police- we need to know where you stand! If grassroots patriots like you don’t share their support for our police-- the defunding of LAPD will spread across the state to every police department like wildfire! CLICK: Confirm you back the blue
