’You've done enough. Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?’’

With those words, Joseph Welsh, the lawyer for the Army, silenced Senator Joe McCarthy in 1954 and brought an end to the maniacal witch hunts that Republicans had condoned since 1950. McCarthy was finally disgraced and the homophobic, blustering bully retreated into alcoholism and the annals of ignominy, after ruining careers and lives with reckless, baseless accusations of disloyalty to the United States.

In much the same way, Republicans are again allowing a demagogue like Donald Trump to hijack, label, and stigmatize the GOP as the party of racists and bigots by remaining silent while this mountebank offers nothing but smears and innuendos against his opponents as a substitute for substantive policies and direction for America. With their silence, the doyens of the GOP are compromising their integrity by allowing Trump to condone childish Indian war hoops delivered at his rally, by encouraging his followers to ‘’’beat the crap’’ out of protesters, by demeaning women and minorities, by resurrecting anti-Semitism with a six-point star in an anti-Clinton ad which his gnathonic surrogates deny as a symbol of Judaism.

Trump, a poltroon whose only military experience was prancing around in a uniform like a cockalorum at the New York Military Academy for rich spoiled brats, boasts that he knows more about ISIS than the generals and actually believes they will blindly obey his orders to commit war crimes to defeat an enemy. He sounds like a delusional Hitler cowering in his bunker refusing to believe the war he launched is lost. Are Republicans so stupid and so cowardly as to allow this clown of many faces to lead its party?
