Letter: Unpatriotic party

The Republican Party has dug its own grave. With Donald Trump as the presumptive nominee, will the leadership wake up and confirm Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court, or will it wait for a more liberal nominee from President Hillary Clinton? Perhaps they’ll claim we should wait until the next election in 2020 so “the people can have a say.” After eight years of bashing our government and teaching hate, there is little wonder Republicans have an unfavorable rating over 60 percent — the highest since this type of polling began. They should learn it’s unpatriotic to hate our country and the many diverse groups that make up the population.
