Via my friend John: “So, what will it really take?
Boasting about groping women over a hot microphone wasn't enough. Unsavory remarks about random little girls riding escelators, or extolling the physical attributes of his own daughter to Howard Stern wasn't enough. Chiding female broadcasters, claiming that accusations of assault made by numerous women, wouldn't have happened because they weren't attractive enough to meet his standards, doesn't motivate. Associations with documented sex offenders, slanderous accusations texted about fellow, albeit female, Americans, sworn to uphold the constitution (just like the oath, he took) and no response of moral indignation from the GOP, home of the 'Moral Majority', so called, the champions of 'Family Values'... 🙈🙉🙊
There is a legal term, 'qui tacet consentire vidtur' (he who is silent is taken to agree) and in the faith that I was raised in, 'sin by omission' (if you can do something to abate wrong doing, and choose to do nothing, you are guilty of sin, as well), these concepts hit a nerve as I watch the news and try to keep my food down.
Have the standards lowered so much? Is political gain worth the value of our collective national soul?
Where is the line drawn in the sand?” #impeachtrump#racist#misogynist#bigot#criminalminds#lockhimup

There are more consequences for calling out a racist than there are for actually being a racist. America.
Here’s GOP senate hopeful Kris Kobach stating clearly that he’s consider supporting Trump even if the president OPEY DECLARED HE WAS A RACIST. -

This is the fight we’re in. -
