To the Editor,

This is an open letter to Republicans and Libertarians and, even, the “undecided.” The time is now, not one minute from now, not one hour, not one second, but now, right now, to completely disavow any and all kinship with Donald J. Trump. Period. The remarks he has made about Charlottesville, VA, have proven beyond doubt this “man” is unfit for any public office.

If you do not completely disassociate yourselves from him you, by default, agree with him and are complicit in the murder of Heather Heyer.

There is no room in the United States of America for this nonsense. This is complete idiocy to countenance, by your silence, the very idea that the Nazis or the KKK were just peaceful protesters with permits to be there. They came armed. That says it all.

Let’s be clear here. I also favor the removal of statues on public ground of Confederate troops and/or officers on a purely Conservative basis. I find it quite offensive to spend tax dollars on upkeep for memorials to traitors.

It is a moment of truth for Trump supporters. Can you handle the truth?

Dwight Schmuck
