Letter to the Editor: Voter suppression

Dear Editor:

I was intrigued by Ms. Malkin's article, “The Left’s Long War on Conservative Free Speech.”
Indeed, it does seem as if progressives attempt, and often succeed, in silencing conservative voices. Witness the numerous times that student protests have led to the cancellation of conservative speaking engagements at colleges and universities. 

But then Ms. Malkin ends her article with the following statement: "The ballot box is one of the mightiest platforms we have. Use it or lose it." This statement seems disingenuous at best, in that since 2010 it has been Republicans, and not Democrats, who have engaged in voter suppression through gerrymandering and voter ID requirements designed to reduce the voting power of liberals.
