Harvard Republican Club Refuses to Endorse Donald Trump

Donald Trump isn’t eschewing political correctness. He is eschewing basic human decency.


In an admirably principled stand, the Harvard Republican Club is refusing to endorse the Republican nominee for president. This is the only time in its 128 year history that the club has refused to endorse the Republican nominee.
Donald Trump is a threat to the survival of the Republic. His authoritarian tendencies and flirtations with fascism are unparalleled in the history of our democracy. He hopes to divide us by race, by class, and by religion, instilling enough fear and anxiety to propel himself to the White House. He is looking to to pit neighbor against neighbor, friend against friend, American against American. We will not stand for this vitriolic rhetoric that is poisoning our country and our children.

President Reagan called on us to maintain this, our shining city on a hill. He called on us to maintain freedom abroad by keeping a strong presence in the world. He called on us to maintain liberty at home by upholding the democratic process and respecting our opponents. He called on us to maintain decency in our hearts by loving our neighbor.

He would be ashamed of Donald Trump. We are to.
There is more and it's worth your time.

Attention Republican National Committee, this is what leadership looks like.  You should all be ashamed of yourselves that it is coming from a group of 20 year olds.
