On August 2nd, 1934, the German Army assembled and stated with arms raised, “I swear by God this sacred oath to the Leader of the German Empire and people, Adolph Hitler….”
On March 5, 2016, Trump asked supporters to raise their right arms and “solemnly swear” that they would vote for him.
Remarkable how few have condemned Trump for the re-enactment of 1934. Powerfully absent is the revulsion to those who complied.
The efforts by mainstream Republicans to avoid alienating Trump’s supporters defines them as willing to sell out morals for political expediency.
The Republican Establishment is twisting and turning in all manner of contrivances to deny Trump the nomination while keeping his supporters loyal to the party.
Does there not come a time that principles overtake political opportunism? When a soul is traded to the devil can the consequences be surprising?
Some establishment Republicans reputedly are supporting Ted Cruz as the Trump alternative. The belief is that Trump will destroy the party while Cruz will lose, but keep intact the Republican brand.
But without rejecting the extremists that would follow Trump regardless of any offense or violation to the Constitution or Bill of Rights, what would be a legitimate Republican Party?
