To the Editor:

Conservatives regularly attempt to draw false equivalencies with their views and those of liberals, but there are none. The few instances of Democrats doing unseemly things compared to the unlimited number on the Republican side makes for no comparison. Furthermore:

Conservatives/Republicans are not opposed to immigration; they are opposed to "brown" immigration. Those coming from Europe are fine but not from south of the border. Where is the liberal equivalency?

Conservatives/Republicans want to prevent as many minority and poor people as possible from voting in order to win elections. Where is the liberal equivalency?

Conservatives/Republicans want women to die rather than allow abortions. Where is the liberal equivalency?

Conservatives/Republicans either support or have strong support from hate groups. Where is the liberal equivalency?

Conservatives/Republicans oppose birthright citizenship now that there are too many of "those" they do not want in this country. Where is the liberal equivalency?

Conservatives/Republicans promote fear of anyone not like them and either want them in jail or removed from the country. Where is the liberal equivalency?

Conservatives/Republicans believe health care is for those who can afford it. If you can't, that is your problem. Where is the liberal equivalency?

Conservatives/Republicans oppose freedoms such as sexual orientation and marry the person you love. Where is the liberal equivalency?

Conservatives/Republicans denigrate the educated as elites and out of touch. Where is the liberal equivalency?

There are certainly more, but I do not have sufficient space to present them.
