Tehachapi mountain man Norm Haughness, featured several times in Community Voices, is an obvious Donald Trump hater. But his Jan. 16 article went too far when he called Trump's base "ignorant racists."

Since I am part of this group I could have been offended by his irrational drivel — but I wasn't, considering the source.

Norm perfectly fits The Californian mold as an ardent Trump thrasher.
