The real Nazis

How comforting to see that the “anti-hate” thugs assaulting a group of peaceful conservatives are doing their part for peace and love. Guess that’s why the police “stood down” rather than protect those in a peaceful assembly. Those thugs are reminiscent of Hitler's “Brown Shirts” in 1930s Germany, who attacked anyone who criticized National Socialism or praised democracy. So who are the real Nazis? It is obvious.

Lefty anarchists

Re “Black-clad anarchists storm Berkeley rally, assaulting 5” (sacbee.com, Aug 27): The repeated characterization of the violent anarchist troublemakers who assaulted several people in Berkeley on Sunday as “left-wing” is a misapplication of the term. An anarchist is anti-government, period, and thus can’t have a political affiliation. Furthermore, these thugs do not embody liberal values and their actions certainly did not benefit any liberal causes.

Bigots and cowards

Re “A girl brain but a boy body.” (sacbee.com, Aug. 25): Cowards who are ranting on social media, but are unwilling to talk on the record know their bigotry is out of step both with society and the law in California. Fortunately, these people do not represent all of Rocklin.

Being transgender

Re “A girl brain but a boy body.” (sacbee.com, Aug. 25): Being transgender means facing unique challenges – for both the individual and his or her family. To support friends, colleagues, loved ones and students who are facing these challenges, being informed is the best place to start.
