Letter was so drastic, a response was needed

To the editor:

I am a 76-year-old resident of South Portland who has never written a letter to an editor that was simply echoing others, since I have such strong opinions of my own. However, many kudos to Mr. Will Fritzmeier and Mr. William Duffy-Dufris for their incisive, much-needed responses in the Sept. 23 Sentry to letter writer Mr. Joe Trevino. We all need to stand together, be vocal, and vote against the deplorable (yes, I like that word) anti-American viewpoints espoused by Mr. Trevino.

Mr. Trevino and other supporters of Donald J. Trump have every right to express their views in this great country of ours, but those of us who are repelled and infuriated by the hate-filled lies of the Republican Right have that same freedom. I applaud all who will take a stand against those lies and hatreds, a stand for which our Founding Fathers would also applaud.
