LETTER TO THE EDITOR:

Republican Party exposes its prejudices

The gloves are off and the underside of the rock has been exposed by Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla., who, in front of reporters, called Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., a vulgar and derogatory term.

The grand old gentlemen of the once-Grand Old Party are spinning in their graves as sexist, racist language is being swept up with brooms of denial on the conservative side of the aisle by chagrined Republicans criticizing Ocasio-Cortez for not accepting an apology.

Foul language, like a bullet, cannot be returned to the gun or mouth that shot it off.

Now, the dictionary will have anew word to define: Yoho, defined as a sexist, racist conservative congressman.

Expose them for what they are, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez. Abe Lincoln is right behind you urging you on.
