Rethink your stance

Congressman Howard "Buck" McKeon pacifying the politically correct crowd is more than a huge disappointment ("McKeon: Kellar should offer an apology," Feb. 3). He reportedly said: "It was an unfortunate statement. ... I'd encourage it to be clarified, cleared up, apologized for and moved on from."

Worse yet is the misinformation being voiced by his office.

My wife called McKeon's Santa Clarita office and expressed our disgust for his position.

The young lady who answered the phone asserted that Bob Kellar was not called a racist by another person or persons but that (without cause) "he called himself a racist." She continued with her insistence even when told of the information in the various Signal articles to the contrary.

Notes to McKeon and his staff: Yes, Kellar was called a racist (first) when stating he wants America to have one flag and one language; yes, Kellar's statement was "unfortunate" because it gave fodder for the dense and moronic to take his words out of context; yes, Kellar has already clarified his statement and no, he should not apologize.

McKeon needs to rethink his placation of the hollow, feel-good crowd to secure votes he will need in the future.

Being politically correct does not make you correct.

"Racist" has become an easy fallback term for the ignorant and those who cannot realistically support the lawlessness and ooze of such things as illegal immigration.

Like it or not, the majority of Americans are indeed patriotic and want the same things Kellar does: one flag, one language, secure borders and legal immigration.
