The South Dakota Democratic Party has joined several national Democratic figures in promoting an anti-Trumpism pledge:
Donald Trump’s racism, sexism, and bigotry make him unworthy for any office in America.
But despite his anti-Hispanic, anti-woman, anti-Muslim policies, Republicans continue to support him.
In standing by their leader, their values are one in the same. They need to be held accountable for their backwards, disgusting views.
TAKE THE PLEDGE: I pledge to vote against Donald Trump and any candidate who supports him [anti-Trump pledge, downloaded 2016.06.16].
I generally caution against single-issue voting, but dumping candidates like Senator John Thune and Rep. Kristi Noem for backing Trump isn’t a single-issue vote. Endorsing Trump means endorsing a whole raft of discriminatory policies against Hispanics, women, Muslims, and whomever else Trump needs to scapegoat to win the Führerschaft. A candidate who either can’t see or is willing to ignore the danger of Donald Trump controlling nuclear weapons will also fail to show good judgment on legislation.
Take that pledge—no matter what, don’t vote for Trump and any of his fawning Trumpists.
