Disturbing Image

While driving to Ponquogue Beach this past Sunday, I noticed one of the most disturbing images I have ever seen.

On a house lawn, there is a 6-foot cardboard cutout of a Rambo-dressed figure holding an AK-47 — with Donald Trump’s smiling face. Beneath this stands a Trump/Pence poster stating, “Make America Great Again.”

Really? Do you think this type of signage is appropriate? Are you trying to incite violence?

In the times we are living, with such racial and economic injustices in this country, you, like Trump, are promoting hate. I really hope people like you wake up and realize we don’t want to live in a Russia-loving dictatorship, and that this is not the country we love.
