There was a Letter to the Editor entitled “Liberals keep COVID alive,” from Darrell Williams Sr. of McAllen (Texas), which appeared in the August 18, 2020 edition of The Monitor.

THE HOLLOWED-OUT MIND BEHEATH THE MAGA HATS

By Al Garcia

There was a Letter to the Editor entitled “Liberals keep COVID alive,” from Darrell Williams Sr. of McAllen (Texas), which appeared in the August 18, 2020 edition of The Monitor.  It was one of the most sickening “commentaries” on the COVID pandemic that I have read.  And I wanted to share my thoughts with you, as it is still on my mind.

Mr. Williams illustrates through his words and mindset, the idiocy and absurdity of the Trump supporters’ last attempt to breathe life into a man who is already brain dead.  Mr. Williams states in his article that “[t]he anti-Trump people, who I believe are conducting or influencing the ‘COVID containment program,’ do not want our epidemic to end in my opinion.”  What a sick, misguided and irrational “opinion”!  This, coming from a man who is obviously blindly following the antics of an unhinged and incompetent President who listens to the “My Pillow” CEO instead of our nation’s scientific experts regarding COVID advice and guidance. 

I was about to take Mr. Williams down, point by point on his “hoax” conspiracy and diatribe advocating that ordinary Americans who believe in the science and the logic of systematically and rationally dealing with the pandemic “don’t care if Americans die needlessly.”  However, someone who fosters or believes in that irrational and absurd understanding of America and Americans, does not deserve my time, much less my pity or compassion.  It is individuals like Mr. Williams and others of his ilk and kind -- counterfeit patriots -- who continue to conflate the true American grit and courage of our heritage and legacy that most of us believe in and live on a daily basis -- with their own blind agreement and deference to the disconnected and nonsensical ramblings and distortions of a fool leading idiots, imbeciles and morons down the yellow brick road.

I use the words “idiot,” “imbecile” and “moron” in the clinical sense, not in a derogatory way.  As medically defined, “idiots” are individuals whose mental development never exceeds that of a normal child of about two years.  “Imbeciles” are people whose development is higher than that of an idiot, but whose intelligence does not exceed that of a normal child of about seven years.  And “morons” are persons whose mental development is above that of an imbecile, but does not exceed that of a normal child of about twelve years.  Mr. Williams clearly revealed his clinical age, and exposed his lack of character, courage and honor – things American veterans and true American patriots of every color, ethnicity and creed know all about. 


History has shown us what happens when unthinking and unfeeling idiots, imbeciles and morons blindly follow unscrupulous, unprincipled, corrupt and immoral men.  Unfortunately, the COVID has not only taken over almost 600,000 lives, destroyed and devasted hundreds of thousands of families, and inflicted a financial and emotional hardship on millions of my fellow Americans, but it has also exposed the ugly underbelly of the dormant beast that had laid silent and harmless in the minds of people like Mr. Williams.  And, more troubling is the fact that there is a “Mr. Williams” in many of our own families, our neighbors, parishioners we pray with, and with our working colleagues and partners.

What the traitorous Confederacy could not achieve – the division and betrayal of our Union, Mr. Williams, ex-President, the current Republican Congress, and others like them, are now attempting to accomplish.  They have divided our nation into Red and Blue states – with then President Trump governing only the Red and ignoring the Blue.  That is not a United States, but rather, the emergence of a new Confederacy, destined to not only destroy itself (again), but to decimate centuries of progress and American dreams. 

Mr. Williams, grow up.  Have the patriotic courage to start acting like a man of conviction, character and honor, and stop following the false prophet who cannot see beyond his own reflection and his ego. 

It is frightening to read letters after letters from individuals exposing themselves for the hypocrites they are.  It was better when I saw you, but didn’t know how weak and sad and foolish you really are.  I wish I could grab your shoulders and shake some sense into you, but I’m afraid I’d only hear a rattling sound inside an empty mind.
