Anonymous Chastisement

[To the Editor:] I am a longtime subscriber to the Gazette, living in the Boston area. It’s been disappointing to me that the Gazette has ignored the gravity of the violent atrocities committed by Hamas on October 7th, but now that you’re giving a platform for and even cheering on alternative facts, it’s time for me to say goodbye to the Gazette. In your January 12th edition, you published Will Thomas’s letter. Thomas criticized the Union Leader for publishing a letter which mentioned various references to the violent Hamas attacks without requiring the letter writer to list their sources. Thomas engaged in verbal gymnastics to …

On the U.S.-Supported Genocide in Gaza

To the Editor: I am very disappointed in the New Hampshire Gazette for not taking the genocide being perpetrated against Palestinians as seriously as is warranted. Imagine we are back in the thirties. As the Holocaust is being carried out only a few articles appear in the press about it… wait, that actually did happen. It’s horrible to see the same thing happening with Gaza accompanied by attempts by fanatic zionists and the power elite to silence or marginalize critics of Israel’s genocidal actions in which over 25,000 have already died, the majority of them women and children… i.e., civilians. One Israeli official tried to …

Don’t Be Reckless, Vote Fascist

To the Editor: If I were to write about Trump’s reckless personal life, tainted business history, draft-dodging, constant unchallenged lying, cheating donors, squishy liberal record and surrender to the establishment, it would be too much to publish. His past administration demonstrates a massive failure as a “conservative” Republican. If only five percent of Republicans who supported him in 2020 (before he engaged in questionable activities) refuse to vote for him in another general election, he can’t win. And from what I see, that is exactly what they’re saying they’ll do. We only need to look at the losses suffered at all levels since 2018 by …

The “Palestinians Were Immigrants” Canard

To the Editor: Lewis Brackett refers to the “inconvenient truths” that Palestinian Arabs were immigrants, and that Palestine was a desert until Zionists fixed it up. Actually, only extremely uninformed people still consider these hoary myths to be “truth.” The “Palestinians were immigrants” canard has been demolished by Norman Finkelstein, Bill Farrell, Albert Hourani, and others. A number of people, such as Howard Sachar and Yehoshua Porath, have put immigrants at a twelfth of Palestine’s population in 1948. What does Brackett make of recent DNA testing, reported by Haaretz, that indicates half of Palestinians have roots going back to the Canaanites? The desert business is …

A Few Damn Good Questions

Dear Editor, From the Constitution of the United States, Article 1, Section 3, Paragraph 7: “Judgement in Cases of Impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States: but the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Judgement, and Punishment, according to the Law.” Convicted or not by the Senate, the operative phrase, written in plain English, is… SHALL nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, etc.…” Senator Mitch McConnell, one day after the Senate failed to convict the Barking Yam in his second …

Remembering Governor Voldemort

To the Editor: A 6th housing forum was held at St Anselm’s on December 8, 2023. The Free State Project is supposed to stand for freedom. So why would they want to impose draconian zoning changes on our towns? Jason Sorens is the founder of the Free State Project and part of the “Center for Ethics in Society” at St. Anselms’s. In partnership with New Hampshire Housing Finance Authority and the N.H. Office of Planning and Development, this group was the creator of the “Zoning Atlas,” a tool that helps target towns that do not favor high density construction. Why would a supposedly Catholic college …
