HE’S PROUD OF HIS ANCESTRY
That Don Freitag letter (March 8) was a joke!
I’m a third-generation American of 95 percent German ancestry, born in Putnam County.
I’m proud of my German ancestry.
As Pennsylvania, Ohio, Minnesota and Wisconsin are the most German/German-American states, perhaps Mr. Freitag should move out of Ohio.
What’s wrong with ethnic festivals? I went to Findlay’s Oktoberfest and had a couple of beers. I will go to this year’s fest, too.
As for the Irish, they were persecuted for their Catholic faith by the English/British for centuries.
I do believe in time British-occupied Ulster (Northern Ireland) will be united with the real Ireland.
All nations have persecuted their minorities or majorities in the past or present time. The U.S. is no exception.
