Republicans Who Support Donald Trump In One Place

The Big Bad Donald has huffed and puffed and blown the GOP’s straw-thatched cover.

Trump gave up the party yesterday when he called for a ban on all Muslims entering the United States, including American citizens returning from abroad. While this may be the most blatant fascism we’ve seen from any Republicans so far, it’s just one of many anti-Muslim policies the field has laid out. The only problem is Trump didn’t use the standard dog-whistle approach this time. According to the Associated Press,”While Trump’s rhetoric may be more bombastic and his proposals more aggressive, his rivals have proposed their own ideas for keeping tabs on Muslims in the United States and blocking those who want to come here.”

Trump says he isn’t bothered by the growing number of comparisons to Hitler, and his supporters don’t seem to want him to back down. Will the GOP really keep bashing its presidential frontrunner? The same frontrunner so many Republicans were praising for his anti-Muslim rhetoric and policies just a little bit ago? 

The Republican Party is the Party of Trump:

  • All of the Republican presidential candidates have signed a pledge to support the Republican nominee whether or not that is Donald Trump.
  • Ben Carson has said he doesn’t think a Muslim should be president and compared Syrian refugees to “rabid dogs.”
  • Senator Ted Cruz wants to ban Syrian Muslims from coming into the country.
  • Jeb Bush has said we should only allow Syrian Christians into the United States, proposing a religious test refugees would have to pass before entering.
  • When asked about closing mosques, Senator Marco Rubio said we should close down “any place where radicals are being inspired.”
