Republicans keep failing American Moral Leadership 101

First it was Trump unable to grasp or care about the difference between racists and the people protesting racists.

Now the Washington Post says Republicans leaders can't choose between denouncing Trump's moral failure and hoping yet to get something out of him, like, say another tax cut that's designed to strip revenue from the government and make government's alleged shortcomings a partisan, inequity-reinforcing and self-fulfilling prophecy.

A failure of will and principle that has made Republicans in the Wisconsin where the GOP was founded look unfit to have inherited the Party of Lincoln.

Racism and anti-semitism and neo-nazism and white supremacy are wrong, wrong, wrong, and people who can't get it right have to be condemned, by name, especially if the person getting it wrong is the President of the United States in the year 2017

This should be the easiest choice any American and certainly any and every United States politician will ever have to make.

Honestly, Scott Waller, Paul Ryan and Ron Johnson:

Nothing will change until all people are educated to a high enough degree that they are able to recognize prejudice, racism and bigotry as being the small minded, evil dogma they really are. Those beliefs are learned at the knees of their parents,and their parents parents, going back generations.
